From the creator of the MIND diet, the authoritative guide to eating for a healthy brain and optimal cognitive function.

Several factors play into whether you will suffer from cognitive decline and develop Alzheimer’s disease — lifestyle, health conditions, environment, and genetics, for example. But now there is scientific evidence indicating that diet plays a bigger role in brain health than we ever thought before.

In Diet for the MIND, one of the leaders in this research provides an easy, non-invasive, and effective way to prevent cognitive decline and reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease through diet and lifestyle. There are specific foods and nutrients that are important for keeping the brain functioning optimally, and also foods to limit because they can cause brain injury. With 80 delicious recipes for every occasion, Diet for the MIND is your roadmap to a healthy brain — for life.
