Excitement about Steven Masley’s
THE BETTER BRAIN SOLUTION
"Full of practical advice, backed up by medical evidence, that will lead to a healthier brain, even as we age. The Better Brain Solution provides a simple approach to keeping your brain supple and functional. Reading this book could have a major impact on how you age well and delay the effects of aging on your brain. Worth reading."--Bill Burnett, co-author of Designing Your Life
"Superb . . . Masley's elegant book just may save your life!"--Howard Markel, author of The Kelloggs, The Battling Brothers of Battle Creek
"In a world facing an epidemic of early-onset dementias, anyone over 40 should protect their brain. Dr. Steven Masley's command of the scientific literature is easy for a layperson to understand, and the plan he lays out is revolutionary, and it works!"--Robyn Openshaw, author of Vibe: Unlock the Energetic Frequencies of Limitless Health, Love & Success
"Alzheimer's, dementia, and cognitive decline are all relentlessly gaining ground. Our brains are under constant attack--what to do? Take control! Dr. Masley expertly shows you how in this important new book."--Dr. Joseph Pizzorno, ND, author of The Toxin Solution
"Well done... awesome... superb--just a few adjectives to describe Dr. Masley's The Better Brain Solution! A timely book in the toxic times we live in. Masley acutely portrays proven remedies and solutions that will help support and protect the delicate and vulnerable tissues of your brain and even your heart. I loved reading The Better Brain Solution and totally agree with its insightful messages."--Dr. Stephen Sinatra, MD, Cardiologist, and co-author of Heath Revelations from Heaven
“An authoritative, user-friendly book. Dr. Masley not only addresses insulin resistance, the most common metabolic contributor to cognitive decline, he also addresses the many other potential contributors. Highly recommended for anyone interested in protecting his or her brain.”—Dale Bredesen, MD, best-selling author, The End of Alzheimer’s
“The Better Brain Solution draws upon what our most well respected researchers in the neurosciences are now publishing—Alzheimer’s disease, a disease for which there is no effective treatment, may well be prevented. Masley rightly challenges the notion that we should simply wait for the “magic bullet” as it relates to Alzheimer’s. His recommendations will undoubtedly change the brain health destiny for any reader who follows his advice.”
—David Perlmutter, author of Grain Brain
“Dr. Masley shows us how brain and heart health are intimately connected and gives us the tools to correct insulin resistance, which will enhance brain function, prevent memory loss, and protect the heart. An important, essential and welcome book.”
—Daniel G. Amen, author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life
“In this smart, well-researched and urgently needed book, Dr. Masley gives us a clear, realistic plan to restore blood sugar, cope with insulin resistance in the brain, and boost cognitive function. Whatever your age, you need this book.”
—J. J. Virgin, author of The Sugar Impact Diet

In part I of the book, Dr. Masley points out the strong connection between blood sugar levels, heart health and brain health. He gives examples of how memory loss progresses over time into full blown dementia and shows how mental sharpness or different grades of dementia can be assessed.
In Part II of the book Dr. Masley gives a detailed introduction of the four pillars of the Better Brain Solution: diet, nutrients, physical activity, and stress management. He emphasizes that we can only be successful if we address all four pillars simultaneously. Then, he lists environmental toxins that are detrimental to brain health and should be avoided. The book ends with a lot of yummy recipes to remind us that living healthy does not mean we have to give up enjoying good food.
Personally I found a lot of information in this book that I have not known before, from the connection between blood sugar and brain health, choosing the right cooking oil or cocoa powder, to getting a good night's sleep. Dr. Masley has reminded me that a better diet is only one piece in the puzzle of better brain health and overall health. I know I also have to address my physical fitness and my stress management in order to stay mentally fit and I will try to embrace Dr. Masley's suggestions.
Overall, I can only recommend buying The Better Brain Solution because it is so comprehensive. The only thing I disagree about is that Dr. Masley suggests unfermented soy products like Edamame as part of a healthy diet, as the majority has been genetically modified and unfermented soy products might elevate the risk for breast cancer. But soy products aside, I would wholeheartedly put my trust into Dr. Masley and get a personal health evaluation in his medical office if I had the financial means to do so.
