Can the food we eat reduce our risk of depression? Which nutrients protect us from dementia? How should I eat for optimal brain performance?
The brain is the hungriest organ in the body, using between 20%-60% of a resting rate calories depending on our age. This means nutrition is essential for healthy brain development and proper brain function from childhood to old age.

The role of food in our risk of dementia (the leading cause of death in the UK)
The importance of the gut microbiome for brain health
And much more...
