You’ve felt the crash after a sugar rush. You’ve felt the boost of energy from coffee. If you listen to this podcast, you’ve hopefully felt the steady focus and clarity from being in ketosis. Point is, we all know that food and what we ingest affects our brain function.

Amy Berger is the author of the Alzheimer’s Antidote, is passionate about the link between diet and brain health. Her research focuses on how a low-carb, high-fat diet can improve neurological brain conditions like Alzheimer’s, and why the wrong diet can worsen and even cause it. There’s a reason it is increasingly being called “Type 3 Diabetes”, and Amy is here to shed some light on why.

In this episode, you'll discover:

  • Exploring potential root causes of Alzheimer’s
  • The protein APOE4 and how it may affect brain health
  • Should cholesterol truly be feared?

Check out Amy's book "The Alzheimer's Antidote" here.
