Based on more than a decade of clinical research, The Better Brain Solution provides the tools you need to fight back. Here, Dr. Masley explains exactly how changes in the way you eat and live can reverse elevated blood sugar levels and in the process improve cognitive performance and avert memory loss. Research has shown that insulin resistance, a condition that can lead to diabetes, can also cause memory loss and dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease.
Plus fifty delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes specially designed for optimal brain and body health, along with a practical way to assess cognitive function, and much, much more.
