The devastating truth about the effects of wheat, sugar, and carbs on the brain, with a 30-day plan to achieve optimum health.

Renowned neurologist Dr David Perlmutter, blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: gluten and carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.

Dr Perlmutter explains what happens when the brain encounters common ingredients in your daily bread and fruit bowls, why your brain thrives on fat and cholesterol, and how you can spur the growth of new brain cells at any age. He offers an in-depth look at how we can take control of our 'smart genes' through specific dietary choices and lifestyle habits, demonstrating how to remedy our most feared maladies without drugs.

With a revolutionary 30-day plan, Grain Brain teaches us how we can reprogram our genetic destiny for the better.

A must read


One of the best books you can ever read. Impossible to read just once, way too much info. Very easy reading and hugely informative, backed up by good science.

Very informative and precise

Interesting topic


This is a topic I am interested in, but I did find the book a little bit hard to read at times. There is a lot of scientific and medical information, and the author is obviously passionate about the topic, but as a lay person I found some parts a bit boring to read and I lost interest in a couple of places. Overall, though, I think the book's content is extremely informative and interesting, and I feel I gained a lot from reading it. I think I will pick the book up again to re-read some parts.

Makes a persuasive case for me to finally go Grain Free - and I feel fantastic! So life changing really!



I want to give this book to everyone I know!


I love this book! It will blow your mind! Very informative and all backed up with evidence. I've already started changing things about my lifestyle and feeling better for it, I can't wait to get started on the 4week program. I'm even thinking of purchasing the cook book. I just wish I had this book a few years ago before my mother died of a brain tumour and it may have prolonged her life a bit.

Not what I expected, BETTER


What I really appreciate about book are the connections made between gluten and hormones. Cortisol, especially. Also, if you're wanting to know more about treating your brain better, this book touches on " Brain Health", extraordinary! Great read. I actually carry this book in my handbag still.
