The New York Times bestselling author of GRAIN BRAIN uncovers the powerful role of gut bacteria in determining your brain's destiny.

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.

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.

        I am interested in gut health, as I am studying nutrition. It is a must read for us all: to improve our health and that of our loved ones.
        Its a simple addition to our daily routine, add probiotics and see how amazing we can feel. Also read Grain Brain.

        Excellent book and well written, if you can get past all the confusing baceria names and some of the more technical concepts, you might very well have a life changing book in your hands.

        Dr Perlmutter takes us on a detailed tour of the destructive effects that 'healthy whole grains' have on our brains. Modern wheat, in particular, is responsible for destroying more brains in this country than all the strokes, car accidents, and head trauma combined. Dr. Perlmutter makes a persuasive case for this wheat-free approach to preserve brain health and functioning, or to begin the process of reversal - Dr William Davis, author of Wheat Belly. Praise for GRAIN BRAIN

        If you want to boost your brain power, keep your memory, and lift your mood and energy, as well as heal from a host of other common complaints, Dr Perlmutter is your guide. This is the definitive instruction book for the care and feeding of your brain! - Dr Mark Hyman, author of The Blood Sugar Solution. Praise for GRAIN BRAIN.

        This book is a bit of a game changer. Highly recommend. - Lorraine Pascale. Praise for GRAIN BRAIN.
