  • Dementia

    Fragile Brain

    The Fragile Brain is a clear and comprehensive guide to the fast-changing science of dementia, written by IFBB Fellow Dr Kathleen Taylor.

  • Mercury Myths

The Interesting Stuff

What you really need to know

  • Mental Health

    It is detrimental to brain structure and function when the diet is deficient in vitamins, minerals, fats and amino acids.

  • Brain & Learning

    What we eat affects our bodies, both in the short term and over months or years.

  • Ageing & Dementia

    As people age, they often expect to experience cognitive decline: memory problems and slower thinking.

  • Offending Behaviour

    Chronic deficiencies of crucial micronutrients may disrupt the normal functions of the mind.

  • Developing Brain

    Development is a complex, life-long dance between genes and many other factors.

  • About Micronutrients

    Micronutrients are about forty biochemicals that include vitamins, several fatty acids and a number of inorganic elements.

  • What Makes a Good Diet?

    Even when calorie and protein intake is adequate, micronutrient deficiency can occur if your range of foods is too narrow.

  • On Your Plate

    Have you ever wondered which foods contain the essential dietary fats and nutrients?

Some of the evidence for why it really matters

  • Pregnancy

    Early Stage Nutrition

    Dr Rachel Gow explains the importance of good nutrition during the early stages of life.

    Adolescent Nutrition

    Brain development, maintenance and function are greatly affected by the foods that we eat. It is essential that the diet during adolescence contains a broad range of nutrients that allow the brain to work at its optimum level. Nutrition not only impacts the ability to learn, but can also affect mental health.
