These are the concrete steps that will help improve the health of your brain, and reduce the risk of certain debilitating diseases. Most notably, Alzheimer's disease is the most dreadful. Dr. Neal Barnard goes through all of the ideas that people have advanced for avoiding Alzheimer's disease. He focuses on the lifestyle approaches that might really help. Some commonly held ideas have no scientific evidence, but do have some anecdotal support. Barnard clearly states which ideas are speculative, and which are backed by hard evidence. For example, dairy products and meats can have deleterious effects on memory, and the effects of saturated fats on the risk of developing dementia. Omega-3 fat supplements have been shown to be no better than a placebo in forestalling memory loss. Fish oil also has no benefit. In the so-called blue zones, even in Okinawa and Sardinia where people commonly live to 100, fish is not a big part of the diet. The Mediterranean diet is better than the Standard American Diet (SAD), but its helpfulness in reducing the risk of Alzheimer's is not conclusive. Some metals, when ingested in excess, can also lead to brain issues. Metals like copper, iron, and zinc are all needed in small quantities. They are absorbed from both plant food and animal food. But when absorbed from plants the absorption is self-regulating, unlike animal sources. Too much absorbed metals are harmful to the brain. People following plant-based diets keep their iron levels in a healthy range. They don't experience anemia, but unlike meat-eaters, they do not accumulate excess iron. The role of aluminum in Alzheimer's is controversial. But, Dr. Barnard maintains that it is best to play it safe. He advances a number of recommendations on how to minimize aluminum intake. Interestingly, donating blood is the fastest way to remove excessive iron from one's body. The book goes into some detail about how exercise can help your brain. Dr. Barnard not only recounts some of the research into the benefits of exercise, but also describes the mechanisms of how exercise works to improve brain function, from a chemical and genetic point of view. I have personally attended many seminars given by Dr. Barnard. He is a true authority on these subjects. He has devoted his professional life to researching the effects of lifestyle changes on health. He never comes off as preachy. He states the facts, and allows people to make up their own minds. I recommend this book to anyone who has a brain, and wishes to protect it.

    Informative read on the various changes you can make to your diet and lifestyle to help protect your brain from dementia/Alzheimer's. Some random points that have stuck with me since finishing the book... Avoid aluminum as much as possible. The more education you have, the better off you are, but I think it's just because that's correlated with a love of learning, so even if you don't have a lot of education, as long as you keep independently learning, you are probably just as protected.

Exercise (in the form of cardio to increase your heart rate) to grow the memory center of your brain. The more languages you know, the better protected you are. A plant-based diet is great to help regulate metal intake - iron, copper, zinc - and to help with keeping blood pressure down and arteries clean. Avoid daily vitamin pills with metals in them. Eat Vitamin E rich foods. Sleep is super important of course. The time you sleep matters too. The early part of the night before midnight is when cortisol levels drop and facts/events are integrated into your memories. One thing I love about new books from Dr. Barnard is that there are always new recipes! I usually don't learn a whole lot new since I've been reading his books for years and know all about the importance of a plant-based diet now, but I always like to revisit him because I like his voice, and I always pick up a few new facts. Not to mention, it's super important for me to keep exposing myself to health information to keep it in the forefront of my mind. I tend to slip into bad habits if I don't stay constantly on top of health information, even if it's stuff I've learned and reviewed many times in the past.

    This is the first book I've read that really shows how to eat to protect your brain. My grandparents had severe memory problems, so I looked everywhere for reliable advice. But the only books I could find wanted to push supplements or medications, which I didn't want. Dr. Barnard has a completely different approach, based on food, and I'm putting it to work as of now.

    Interesting ideas but my primary comment on this book is: FURTHER STUDIES ARE NEEDED. The author sites study after study to support his various ideas, but most studies are one- timers or don't include enough participants to make a scientific case for them.

    Having begun 2013 with a goal of eating healthier, Power Foods for the Brain, by Neal Barnard, M.D., seemed like a book worth taking a look at. Dr. Barnard suggests that eating a plant-based diet, increasing time spent exercising and getting more sleep might protect you from developing memory problems later in life. The book focuses on 4 food groups we should eat more of: fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, and he also recommends that you keep oil intake low.

The book focuses on 4 food groups we should eat more of: fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, and he also recommends that you keep oil intake low. He believes it is these food groups that contain large amounts of nutrients and antioxidants that may actually help reduce brain shrinkage by eliminating free radicals from our system, which destroys brain cells. Dr Barnard does remind us that there are some genetic factors that play into an individuals likelihood for developing dementia and/or Alzheimer's disease, and mentions the fact that a rare gene has been linked to early-onset Alzheimer's as well. He even uses observations of his own family members who were raised on a cattle farm and ate a regular diet of meat, potatoes and corn. He reports that old age and dementia went pretty much hand and hand for his relatives. He does acknowledge the fact that even vegans can develop Alzheimer's, but based on numerous studies of looking at what people ate and what other healthy changes they made over the years, he concludes that improved brain functioning can result and that it is even possible to promote the growth of new neurons. I felt there is something for most everyone to be gained by reading this book. I especially liked that there were some 75 power-food recipes developed by (2) chefs - Christine Waltermyer and Jason Wyrick. The recipes actually look quite good. There are also mental stimulation exercises and physical exercise suggestions, as well as, tips on choosing aluminum-free foods and medicines. Recommended - 4.5/5 stars

    Great, informative but needs more studies and the recipes need a good check I think.

    Hmm. Well, some of the research the author matter-of-factly states is in fact rather more dubious or has conflicting evidence. And the nutrition information on the recipes is wildly improbable. Ran several through a nutrition calculator and did not get AT ALL what the book stated. In once instance, a smoothie with just a few grams of protein was instantly credited with 104 grams when turned into a parfait with oats or granola. That one was surely just a typo, I hope.

I also did not see much treatment of lowfat dairy--he just states dairy is bad because it has animal fat and moves on. Just like he simply states that omega-3's from salmon are bad because there is other fat present--he doesn't discuss the difficulties of absorption of the healthy fatty acids from plant sources, and he totally ignores large bodies of evidence on olive oil. Sigh. But he does have me looking at my supplements with copper and considering changing them.

    Lots of great info on protecting your brain through a plant based diet, physical exercise, and exercising your brain. Very inspiring - the author suggests giving it a try for 21 days. I am psyching myself up to try - wish me luck.

    Some good information for those concerned with memory and brain health as you grow older. There are some great suggestions for genereally making good food choices. I just can't commit to being fully vegan, which is what the final recommendation comes down to.

    A very insightful book on health and food relationship particularly to the functioning of brain. Only rating 3 as half the book is on food menu.

    This book is ok. Published in 2013 so some of the ideas are outdated with current research, but not a bad starting point to figure out some things to avoid or to eat if you want to keep your mind working at peak proficiency.

    The focus of Dr. Neal D. Bernard's new book is focused on BRAIN HEALTH! Having read other books by Bernard, Joseph Mercola, Mark Hyman, Joel Fuhrman, Gary Null, Gabriel Cousins, Dean Ornish, Michael Pollen, etc. etc. --I suppose its fair to say, I have an interest in a healthy living lifestyle. I 'still' find it valuable to reinforce information I've read (different ways) --a dozen times.

I don't want to 'only' read 'health' books ---but I will include a few per year --trying to encourage myself to remember to make responsible choices in my diet, supplements, exercise, sleep, and rest. This book is worth reading -- I was reminded of the value of Vit.12 (for example) --especially for more 'mature' adults. (which is starting to be me). In THIS book --Bernard talks about problems which lead to memory decline & Alzheimer's. He talks about which foods to avoid --and which foods add protection. Eat lots of fruits & veggies --limit meats, maximize vit. intake --get exercise and good quality sleep. Yummy recipe are at the back of this book to boot! Another WONDERFUL book (very different from this one --but a very nice companion) is: "The Secret Life of The Grown Up Brain --The Surprising Talents of the Middle Aged Mind". ---by Barbara Strauch. FASCINATING enjoyable thin book also!

    love eating, and it is quite difficult for me to control my food cravings. This book makes some suggestions for how to conquer food cravings as well as sharpen our memory. In this book three steps are introduced for the brain: The first step is to take power foods. Vitamin E is a must to take. Included are broccoli, spinach, sweet potatoes, avocados, and nuts & seeds. We should also take natural fats such as omega-3 oil.

The second step is to do both mental and physical exercises. The third step is to have a sound sleep. In order to create a good night sleep condition, I will refrain from drinking coffee and turn out lights at 10 p.m. Aha moment was that food cravings have much to do with "dopamine," which is triggered by food, a receptive mate, and drugs.

    I have read many books on nutrition and diet to delay or prevent alzheimer's disease. I feel this is the best book that I have read on this topic. Dr. Neal Barnard presents scientific evidence for his nutritional recommendations and presents it in an interesting manner. He also presents nutrional recipes at he end of the book. Dr. Barnard also lists at the end of the book all the scientific references chapter by chapter.

    As a vegan who eats healthily and exercises, there wasn't a lot new for me in this, but Barnard's research is interesting and my guess is that most Americans don't know this info. I was surprised at his strong recommendation to not eat meat, milk and egg products, and liked how he looked at many common medicines that may be causing memory loss or other brain problems. Lots of great recipes at the end for people who want to try a healthier diet.

    I recently won this book through Goodreads Giveaways. I have been using it as a reference guide type book, and would highly recommend it to anyone concerned about their cognitive abilities: Young adults who want to protect the brain from damage that can lead to dementia; or older adults who have memory lapses, etc. It is very insightful, educational, and can be put to use easily.

    A great resource for anyone who fears dementia, Alzheimer's disease, and overall cognitive decline. Barnard presents valid research to show how/why so many deal with these horrible conditions. He presents 3 easy steps to take to help prevent and ensure that you keep your facilities late into your life. Don't live in fear, nutrition is powerful!!!

    Dr. Barnard's book is a great read if you want to eat healthy for your brain and heart. He goes beyond food too. It has prompted me to make some big changes in eating to more plant-based. I am looking forward to trying the recipes included.

I try, but that bacon gets me every time. That said, after reading this book, I certainly upped my veggie intake and decreased my burger buying. However, me thinks Dr. Barnard might be a little skewed in his fact presentations. Meat does have benefits for our health. Too much though is bad for us and our environment. Why might meat be beneficial? Because when eating an animal, you are eating something that closely resembles our biology, which provides us with the nutrients that we need. But we don't need the extra fat and too much of it can cause constipation. We need that fiber too. Also, he's pushing beans, which have lectins that can be hard on the gut. Soy isn't so great for those who can't balance the glutamates in their brain and excessive soy use has been shown to cause cognitive problems. Unfortunately, all those fake meat substitutes use gluten (seitan) and some form of MSG, a migraine inducting neuro-cell destroying substance. Gluten can be pretty hard on the gut and can cause all sorts of immuno-destructive activities. But I get what the doc is trying to do, get us eating more fruits/veggies and to reduce harming those cute furry and sentient beings that feel pain and emotions--just like us peeps do. I'm down with that, cuz if I had to kill a cute little lambkin, I couldn't do it. Save the lambkins and baby cows!

I can't say as any of it was new or unsurprising, but it was laid out well and comprehensively with an action plan to get started. It was possibly a bit dated though, when he stars recommending a pedometer.....well....who needs one of those when we all own a phone or smart watch that counts our steps.

    It is a quite concise book, with good tips on how to avoid problems of the brain/mind generally associated with age. Basically one should eat a plant based whole food diet, excercise the brain with reading and solving puzzles, excercise the body regularly, and consume B12 supplements, and if necessary also vitamins D, E and B6. It promotes a vegan diet, which I am all up for, but the studies and evidence cited where not that impressive.

    Was reading an article which discussed things to do/foods to eliminate and eat to enhance brain power. Read this book and it has inspired me over the last week to make some changes. The main things I’m concentrating on now are an elimination of refined sugar and decreasing my meat intake to maybe once per week. Brittany is obviously thrilled. Snacks at work are out and I’ve cleaned out my “chocolate” drawer.

    I like that this book provide tips and advice on how to protect your mind and strengthen your memory. Both things are important. There are so many things that can affect your mind and memory. We have to work at protecting our minds and strengthening our memories. I believe that it is best to stay healthy in all ways. We have to take care of our bodies and minds. I also think that it is best to live stress free.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This was an interesting book and definitely one that has prompted me to evaluate my own lifestyle choices. It is well established how diet can affect cardiovascular health, but having read this book it now makes sense to me how this can also affect the brain. This book has helped me to be much more conscious of decisions we make in everyday life to do with our diet, our exercise (or often lack of it) and our sleep.

    I'm surprised to report that I was very unimpressed with this book. Honestly, I found it to be a very, very watered down version of the Blue Zones research (Dan Buettner), with a dash of the best-selling 'Salt, Sugar, Fat.' If you are interested in nutrition as a key component of health/longevity, look to Buettner's work instead. Don't waste your time on this one, it doesn't delve thoroughly enough into any one component to thoroughly educate the reader.

    I listened to this book on audio while following along with an ebook I borrowed from the library. I liked it so much I plan to buy it in paperback. I've never desired to be a vegan or a vegetarian but I'm open to trying combinations of foods that are healthier choices. This book gave me much so much insight on food, cookware, supplements, exercise, medications, sleep habits and other factors which can affect brain health.
