Brain Body Food: The Ultimate Guide to Thriving into Later Life and Reducing Dementia Risk
1 Nov. 2020
Paperback / softback
The science of nutrition, ageing, brain health and dementia risk reduction in everyday language.
Ngaire Hobbins APD – a dietitian specialising in ageing and brain health - skilfully shares her knowledge, offering practical, sensible guidance on eating and living for successful ageing. A book for people in their 40s, 50s and 60s preparing to relish life ahead; and for people in their 70s, 80s, 90s and beyond, wanting to know how to get the very best out of the extra years medical science has delivered to us.
Your food and life choices need to change as you move beyond late middle age if you are going to live your best life into old age. Most popular health messages apply to people aged 30 or 40. But those same messages can be anything from unhelpful to harmful if you are beyond 70.
Ngaire delves into these distinctions in an engaging and approachable style and offers practical solutions, recipe tips and much more.
Learn about the power of real food to achieve peak body and brain function; why weight loss is no longer good for you at later age; about the vital role of the gut microbiome to support your brain; about anti-inflammatory, cell-protective eating and more.
There is a lot that can be done to help prevent dementia, or for those living with a dementia diagnosis, to live the best life possible. Ngaire offers insights and practical advice everyone can follow.
This book represents Ngaire’s passionate response to decades of frustration seeing far too many people facing avoidable physical and cognitive incapacity that can so easily snatch away independence. It is an essential manual for growing older and enjoying the benefits of long life.
Ngaire is a highly respected authority in ageing and brain health, a regular commentator in the media and professional forums in this area and a passionate advocate for raising vital awareness of the unique nutrition needs of older adults.
