Brain Maker

Disorders that handicap the brain are becoming more common - from kids diagnosed with autism and ADHD to adults developing dementia earlier than ever. But there's a medical revolution happening that can fix this issue.

To an astounding degree, the state of your microbiome-the colossal population of organisms that exist in your body and surpass your cells tenfold-dictates the health of your brain. In other words, what's happening in your intestines right now is deciding how susceptible you are to various brain-related conditions.

Dr. Perlmutter's book, Brain Maker, discusses how the microbiome and brain heavily rely on each other. He goes into detail about how lifestyle choices can affect the development of the microbiome from birth as well as how it can become sick. By taking care of gut health through a few easy strategies, you're changing your brain's fate for the better.

Brain Maker simplifies complex dietary issues and provides a step-by-step guide to gut health, in order to improve cognitive function.
