Micronutrients and Brain Health

Post by NHE » Wed Oct 01, 2014 10:10 pm

Micronutrients and Brain Health is a recent book in the CRC Press series Oxidative Stress and Disease. It's a collection of densely written review articles that discuss how micronutrients affect brain health. The articles cover a variety of topics including lipoic acid, flavanoids such as EGCG and fisetin, omega-3 fatty acids, branched chain amino acids, Nrf2 activators and others. The lead editor is Lester Packer who has published several papers on lipoic acid. Note that the book is a bit pricey through CRC though it's about half price on Amazon (and 1/3 the cost for used). I obtained it through my local library's interlibrary loan program. Overall, it's a great book for anyone with a science background. The table of contents is listed below.

Dr. Wahls' newest book, The Wahls Protocol, deals with this subject in an non-technical approach.
