Did you know that women have 70,000 thoughts per day and one person’s brain generates more electrical impulses each day than all the telephones in the world combined? In Brain Fitness for Women, health writer Sondra Kornblatt offers an entertaining look at how women’s brains work: the physiology of women’s brains, new research in neuroscience, the differences between women’s and men’s brains, and how women’s brains age. Kornblatt offers fun facts (yep, that chocolate you’re craving does boost cognitive function), tips (your brain wants a glass of water in the morning), and advice (forget multitasking, the brain can only process one thing at a time) for women who want to keep their minds in tiptop shape. She examines how hormones, the environment, exercise, stress, food, aging, and even friendship affect the brain, and offers strategies for keeping your brain on its metaphorical tiptoes at any age.

40 million Americans (1 in 5) suffer from chronic cramping, bloating, diarrhea, and gas. If you or someone you love is plagued by chronic digestive distress, you know what it's like to be held captive by your gut or spend thousands of dollars on prescriptions that brought only temporary relief. In Trust Your Gut, internist Dr. Gregory Plotnikoff and clinical psychologist Dr. Mark Weisberg show how to listen to your gut to interpret symptoms as important messages that can help correct imbalances. Rather than using drugs to mask the symptoms and underlying problems, Plotnikoff and Weisberg offer a program to assess how diet, sleep, and stress are affecting your life and health. Plotnikoff and Weisberg offer a self-help program that provides anyone with chronic gut distress the tools to break the vicious cycle of symptoms, fear and pain.

Breakthrough research has revealed that through living a brain-healthy lifestyle, we can reduce our “brain age” to improve memory, hone sharpness, and reduce health risks as we age. It’s normal for the brain to short-circuit every now and then—you put your keys in the fridge, or can’t find the pair of glasses on top of your head. But what if there was a way to eat, exercise, and live that could eliminate these “senior moments?” Ageless Brain offers a plan to sharpen your memories and mind so that at 40, you have the quick, agile brain you had at 30. Based on groundbreaking scientific research, this plan is filled with brain-healthy foods, exercises, and little ways you can positively impact your most vital organ every day by de-stressing, adjusting your attitude, and constantly interacting with the world through play. Scientists have discovered that the human brain continually generates new neurons—forging new pathways and connections in our minds—well into old age, as long as we pursue brain-healthy lifestyles from what we eat and how much we sleep, to how we exercise and handle stress. Exercising and nourishing our brains just like we do any other ailing organ encourages this growth—improving not only our mental fitness but also our physical fitness as a side effect. With Ageless Brain, you will: · Discover the 10 Commandments of an ageless brain · Reduce key risk-factors for Alzheimer’s · Identify and avoid brain poisons lurking in food, medicines, and home · Learn to play and engage your brain more in everyday life · Drop unsafe levels of blood pressure, cholesterol, and sugar—as well as belly fat · Keep your brain nourished with 45 recipes
