The 30-Day Alzheimer’s Solution: The Definitive Food and Lifestyle Guide to Preventing Cognitive Decline

Dean and Ayesha Sherzai. HarperOne, $29.99 (256p) ISBN 978-0-06-299695-4
Dean and Ayesha Sherzai, the married codirectors of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Program at Loma Linda University Health, advise that good nutrition is crucial for a healthy brain in this informative and sobering debut. The authors note that almost six million people in the U.S. have Alzheimer’s, and make the case that readers can improve and protect their brain function with the NEURO (nutrition, exercise, unwind, restore, and optimize) plan. It features a diet free of animal products and refined carbs, and while the authors touch on NEURO’s other four components (“unwind,” for example, sheds light on the cognitive effects of stress), their focus remains on nutrition. They outline foods that readers should eat regularly—leafy green vegetables, whole grains, berries—and lay out which foods to avoid, such as cheese and sugary drinks. A sample “30 days of brain boosting” guide offers a meal and exercise plan, and beautiful photography accompanies the more than 75 recipes, such as “Memory Boosting Granola” and “Brainy Tabouleh.” Well-written and easy to follow, this program will be a boon to health-conscious readers.
