Summary

Debilitating brain disorders are on the rise - from children diagnosed with autism and ADHD to adults developing dementia at younger ages than ever before. But a medical revolution is underway that can solve this problem. Astonishing new research sheds light on the influence of the human microbiome in every aspect of health, including your nervous system.

In Brain Maker, Dr Perlmutter explains the connection between intestinal microbes and the brain, describing how the microbiome develops from birth and evolves based on the environment, how it can become 'sick', and how nurturing gut health through a few easy strategies can alter your brain's destiny for the better.

With simple dietary recommendations and a highly practical program of six steps to improving gut ecology, Brain Maker opens the door to unprecedented brain health potential.

Planning to listen to it again

As a vegan I take some of the information with a grain of salt, but I learned so many new things and I plan to listen to it again, as it can get quite technical and heavy with scientific terms. You can skip the technicalities and remember the essence, but I love a bit of science and want to make sure I know my “whys”.
