Nutrient-Dense ‘Genius Foods’ Protect Brain Function

EP148: Nutrient-Dense ‘Genius Foods’ Protect Brain Function

Prevention of mental degradation starts with the food you eat.

Writing a New York Times bestselling book about nutrition wasn’t part of Max Lugavere’s original life plan. But, when his mother started showing signs of early dementia at a young age there was no question of what he needed to do. He took a break from filmmaking to invest his time and journalistic resources into uncovering the link between nutrition and brain health. During his conversation with Drew, Max shares his passion for prevention, the foods he declares genius foods, and his views on the state of medical care today.
