Book – Brain Maker: Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain for Life
Complementary to Elixa Probiotic, Brain Maker is the book the medics are sitting up and taking notice of.
After all, 2 kilograms of the weight of your gut is made up from bacteria. So surely these bacteria have an influence on the rest of the body. People are calling the gut microbiome the second brain – which influences the body, mind, behaviour and mood. The science of gut bacteria is only now beginning to be understood – this book will astonish and amaze.
Debilitating brain disorders are on the rise – from children diagnosed with autism and ADHD to adults developing dementia at younger ages than ever before. But a medical revolution is underway that can solve this problem. Astonishing new research sheds light on the influence of the human microbiome in every aspect of health, including your nervous system. In BRAIN MAKER, Dr Perlmutter explains the connection between intestinal microbes and the brain, describing how the microbiome develops from birth and evolves based on the environment, how it can become ‘sick’, and how nurturing gut health through a few easy strategies can alter your brain’s destiny for the better. Yes, this book is also very practical and easy to follow!
With simple dietary recommendations and a highly practical program of six steps to improving gut ecology, BRAIN MAKER opens the door to unprecedented brain health potential.
