Nutrition researcher and New York Times bestselling author Neal Barnard, M.D., is well known for his research about the health benefits of a low-fat, plant-based diet. Dr. Barnard’s latest book, Power Foods for the Brain, talks about how certain foods — power foods — can protect your brain and optimize its function, even dramatically reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Barnard reviewed the most up-to-date research studies, creating a program that can help boost brain health, reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and stroke, and improve over cognitive functions, including improved energy levels, sleep patterns, mood, and concentration.

Dr. Barnard’s advice will help you rid toxic metals from your diet, kitchen, and medicine cabinets, while introducing lifestyle habits that aim to sharpen your memory and improve your health. A seven-day meal plan and more than 70 recipes are included to help you get started. You can learn more about Dr. Barnard’s research at NealBarnard.org.
