How to eat for maximum brain power and health from an expert in both neuroscience and nutrition.
Like our bodies, our brains have very specific food requirements.
And in this eye-opening book from an author who is both a
neuroscientist and a certified integrative nutritionist, we learn

Dr. Lisa Mosconi, whose research spans an extraordinary range of
specialties including brain science, the microbiome, and
nutritional genomics, notes that the dietary needs of the brain are
substantially different from those of the other organs, yet few of

cognitive health incorporates concepts that most doctors have yet
to learn. Busting through advice based on pseudoscience, Dr.
