Of all the organs in the body, the brain is one of the most vulnerable to a poor diet’s ravages. The brain is the most metabolically active organ, using 20% of the body’s energy haul. Adopting a brain-healthy diet is a powerful tool in maximizing cognitive health and is a powerful preventative against dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. Women have different metabolic requirements, genetics and hormones that factor into healthy eating. Common ailments for women such as slow metabolism, insomnia and depression can be curtailed by knowing how to maximize the intake of nutrients that specifically deal with the delicate integrity of our highly specialized bodies and brains. We know that diets do not deliver the same results for women as compared to men. The body and the brain alike need all kinds of nutrients to keep them healthy. Considering female physiology is paramount in optimizing brain health. Women’s quality of life can be enhanced by following simple guidelines. Groundbreaking research will be revealed in this course that focuses on how gut health, antioxidants, phytoestrogens, xenoestrogens, organic foods, chemicals, and even fasting can be beneficial to the female brain.
