Grain Brain by David Perlmutter

Grain BrainGrain Brain is another book about gluten and carbohydrates, this one about effects on the brain and nervous system by an MD who has spent his life’s practice working with neurological problems. Many studies are quoted and the biological pathways are carefully described, and, though I felt like I understood it as I was reading, it was difficult to keep a clear view of just how all of this worked. In short, it is not as simplistically written as some books of its kind.

It also has suggestions for a healthier life and improved brain function using diet changes and some supplements, with a regimen that is not as extreme as some “paleo” diets. I found it useful and encouraging.
