9780060183912: Your Miracle Brain

Your Brain is the key to your body, health, mind and happiness. Find out how what you eat and drink effects how effectively your brain works, and how to keep improving brain function from childhood to old age with diet and supplements.

Brain power and healthy function can decline over time – but ‘age-related’ problems such as:
• memory loss • decrease in energy • lack of mental sharpness • likelihood of stroke or other ‘neurovascular’ disorders •

can be prevented and even reversed with the use of supplements and a good diet, or what Jean Carper refers to as ‘nutritional neuroscience’.

All key nutritional supplements and diet issues are examined including • Co Enzyme Q10 • Sam-e • PS • Omega Oils • Vitamins & Minerals • Blood Sugar • Cholesterol • Homocysteine •

Readers of all ages will be amazed at the new medical evidence showing just how well the human brain responds to the right ‘fuels’. Find out how to:
• maximise your brain power • feel more awake
• sharpen your memory • improve your IQ
• heighten concentration • become better co-ordinated • speed up reaction times • defuse stress and become happier

From the Back Cover:

Myth: You are born with a genetically determined brain of a certain size and with fixed potential
Reality: the brain is a growing, changing organ with enormous capabilities if you nourish and treat it correctly.

Your brain cells are even more sensitive than other body cells to certain nutrients and food chemicals. If we want to live well in our old age we need to reverse the decline of our brainpower which commonly happens after the age of 40.

Jean Carper, drawing on exciting new scientific research, here explores the world of 'nutritional neuroscience' which proves that the right foods and health supplements can help you concentrate, keep you motivated, boost memory, speed reaction times, defuse stress, prevent or cure illness and even slow brain ageing.

In ' Your Miracle Brain' you will find out about the most exciting supplements such as Gingko Biloba, Co-enzyme Q10, St John's Wort, Phosphatidylserine (PS), Sam.e, Alpha-lipoic acid, DHA (found in fish oil), Lecithin, Selenium, Vitamin E and the B vitamins.

Nothing is more central to a successful and fulfilling life than an optimally-functioning brain and in this book Jean Carper shows you how to achieve its full intellectual, creative and emotional potential.
