Found some good information, though author could have shrunken it to about one thirds of its size

i'm giving this 5 stars even though it's a bit out of date...luckily, both piracetam and tryphtophan are now legal in the US, unlike when it was written.

for anyone with Alzeimer's or dementia in their family or friend pool, this is a crucial read.

the crucial piece of take-away info: STRESS IS THE WORST THING FOR YOUR BRAIN. and can actually lead to the states of "aging" and dementia that most Americans think are normal.

i've been on many of the vitamin recommendations for years and highly recom

Dr. Khalsa presents up to date information that is still relevant today even though the book is a few years old. With all the stressors in our lives, it may not seem as important to read books about how to maintain our health, but without our brain, where would we be? If you have any concerns, this is a great book filled with, not just information and research (that's there too), but practical things you can do to improve your brain power and keep your brain healthy throughout your life. --Deann ...more

This book provides a mix of correct and incorrect information - but the main problem isn't that - the main issue I take with this book is the complete lack of citations. The author doesn't support their claims with any sort of clinical studies - you're left to find studies that verify or falsify the information on your own.

The author clearly didn't intend this to be an academic work - if you're seriously interested in learning about the effects of nutrition on the brain, I suggest you look elsew

Recommends it for: everyone.
Recommended to Umm Layth by: Shaykh Nuh Keller
An eye opener. It was also recommended by Shaykh Nuh Keller.

I really enjoyed reading this book because of the approach the author takes on health. He focuses a lot on spirit, health, and not just fighting symptoms. It's a complete outlook on the human body. This is the beauty of Eastern medicine; it tries to pinpoint the cause so that none of those symptoms will continue to occur.

A must read.

i wanted to learn how memory works.. why i remember unimportant things like a conversations light years away with a childhood friend but i can't remember crucial things like where i keep the ATM card. So i read this book and now i can't even remember what i learned from it... sob :-( (it goes with age, i guess) so i'm giving it two stars because it's basically quite thorough in walking us through the brain dept...

Basically what I already knew - eat right, avoid processed foods, exercise your body and brain, do strength training, reduce stress with meditation and or yoga. I'm looking into meditation and yoga. I'm doing the rest and I still can't remember anything so maybe they will help. :-)
