the nutrients that can boost your memory and improve mental clarity (and where to find them);the foods and tactics that can energize and rejuvenate your brain, no matter your age;a brain-boosting fat-loss method so powerful it has been called “biochemical liposuction”; andthe foods that can improve your happiness, both now and for the long term.

This book alongside others I've read will change the way you see yourself, your nutrition, your lifestyle, your habits and most importantly the understandings behind them. We all have the freedom to make our own decisions, but we also should have access to truthful knowledge that could help us asses right from wrong, good from bad and healthy from unhealthy. Educate and overcome, for the sake of humanity and its wealth in health :)
You need this book. Period
I can’t begin to tell you how well written this book is and how valuable the info in the book is. Yes, brain health is the focus but it will forever change the way you view food and how it nourishes your body. And Max has done a great job making the info very accessible and easy to read. I have two copies, digital and paper and I am telling everyone who’s willing to listen about it.
