Dr. David Perlmutter, author of Grain Brain and board-certified neurologist, shares the daily 20-minute ritual that is proven to increase the size of the hippocampus, therefore improving memory. This activity catalyzes production of BDNF, brain-derived neurotrophic factor, which is like a growth hormone for the brain. Find out what it is in this interview with mindbodygreen founder and CEO Jason Wachob.
Dr. Perlmutter is a trusted source when it comes to gut health. With degenerative and cognitive-based diseases on the rise from autism and ADHD in children to Parkinson's and Alzheimer's in adults, uncovering the nuances in the relationship between the brain and the gut has never been more important. In line with his mission to approach neurological disorders with preventive medicine, Dr. Perlmutter has developed practical plans that help the inflammatory response in the body in his best-selling books, Brain Maker and Grain Brain.
