Why An Anti-Inflammatory Diet Is Essential For A Healthy Brain
“The focal point of many of our most debilitating ailments, particularly those that involve brain health, is inflammation. We’ve all experienced inflammation at some point (from a swollen joint to arthritis), but inflammation in the brain is both silent and deadly. In Grain Brain, I identify the role inflammation plays in a myriad of brain diseases, but what you need to know now is that because there are no pain receptors there, you won’t ever know if your brain is experiencing inflammation. So, you need to be proactive about maintaining a diet that is anti-inflammatory: keep your blood sugar in check and enjoy those healthy fats (like avocados and olive oil).” David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, ABIHM a Board-Certified Neurologist and Fellow of the American College of Nutrition.
