Overview

While gray hair and wrinkles may be unwelcome if inevitable signs of the passing years, the memory loss, intellectual impairment, and mood swings that come with an aging brain can be truly devastating.

According to bestselling author and anti-aging expert Dr. Eric Braverman, getting older does not have to mean becoming forgetful, clueless, or depressed—quite the opposite, in fact. Distilling his 35 years of research and clinical experience into an easy-to-follow protocol, Dr. Braverman explains how men and women can actually build new brain cells, becoming younger and smarter as they age. Readers will learn what to eat to stay focused, when to exercise to sharpen their memory, and how to organize their lifestyle to improve problem-solving skills—and discover the revolutionary hormone therapies and medications available to treat cognitive decline.

Having helped thousands take control of their hormones to maintain the physical and sexual vitality of their twenties and thirties, Dr. Braverman now presents a simple plan to help them protect and enhance youth’s most prized possession: a vigorous, capable mind.

    Highly recommended-blows your mind!

    This book is fantastic! I saw the author on TV a couple times and he is super intelligent. He really knows his stuff. It's highly technical, but put in every day terms. Great information and great ideas. He gives info about nutrition, how to improve memory-tests, what to do about diseases, brain chemistry, crossing the blood brain barrior and medications. How to get your brain working at top performance and keep it that way. Top notch book. Finally someone wrote a book that makes sense. The doctor has 35 years of research and clinical experience, so he knows what he's talking about. SunshineWI
