Our brain needs sustenance because it burns a lot of energy every day. What we eat has a direct effect on the performance and the development of our brain. And that is true from the womb to old age. In her new book, best-selling author Manuela Macedonia shows how much the brain profits from the right nutrition but also how the wrong kind can damage it.
The fact that breast milk is the best thing for a baby is universally recognized. But not just to ensure strong bones or a working immune system, it is also essential for the brain structures to develop in an optimal way. The fact that a mother’s diet influences the development of the embryo’s brain, however, is a little more surprising.
The author describes the connections between a good and appropriate diet and a keen intellect in a scientifically sound, amusing, and very personal manner.
This book is an absolute must for everyone who wants to nourish and cherish their mind.
