Kurzbeschreibung

Everyone forgets things sometimes. But do you ever feel like you can't keep track of simple things like acquaintances' names, your car keys, and the two things you needed to pick up on the way home? As America's population ages, more and more people are struggling with the fact that their memory and mental power are not that they used to be. Maybe you've tried "exercising" your mind, or maybe you've just started keeping better "to do" lists. But a proven way to improve your mind, memory and mood is to feed your brain the nutrients it needs to function at its peak performance level. Over the past few years, scientists have discovered dozens of new supplements that enhance and sharpen memory, intelligence, vision, and mental performance.

In Mind Boosters, one of the world's most respected nutritional experts examines the very latest research on these breakthrough brain nutrients, amino acids, herbs, and hormones. Along with a scientific and practical evaluation of their benefits and risks, Dr. Sahelian explains how to combine mind-boosting supplements to help patients with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, depression as well as those with normal age-related mental decline. People of all ages can benefit from the sensible, step-by-step programs tailored to the differing needs of the young, the middle aged and the elderly.

Synopsis

In a series of sensible, step-by-step programs, a distinguished physician and nutritional expert explains how to use herbs, hormones, amino acids, and other nutrients to help patients with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, ADD, and other conditions. 40,000 first printing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mind Boosters 27. Juli 2000
Von N.H.
Format:Taschenbuch
I first learned about Mind Boosters on author Ray Sahelian, M.D.'s Web Site. My particular interest has been in vitamin and hormone supplementation as an anti-aging regimen. Dr. Sahelian provides an extremely informative discussion of a multitude of supplements -- vitamins, herbs, amino acids, and hormones -- that can keep one's mental acuity at its peak and help maintain a high level of overall physical well-being. Since many of these supplements have yet to be subjected to long-term clinical testing by medical experts, Dr. Sahelian brings to the reader the latest information about the use of many of these supplements that is partly based on his own personal experiences as well as results reported by countless others. He is both prudent and cautious in recommending the types of supplements and the appropriate doses one should take for his or her particular needs. This book is well written, informative and can and should serve as a continuing source of reference.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beyond my expectations 7. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I was pleasantly surprised when I received my copy of Mind Boosters from amazon. As I looked through the 300 pages of the book, I was in awe on how much information was packed. On just about every page of the book there was a heading that caught my eye. I was especially drawn to the author's personal experience with the supplements. Dr. Sahelian apparently took the dozens of nutrients he has in his book and it was very refreshing that he included his observations on how they made him feel. He also lists the scientific research on each supplement and the cautions and side effects. What made me trust the information in this book even more is that he mentions a few supplements that don't work or how a cheaper alternative can save the reader a lot of money. Also, his dosage recommendations seem prudent. Everything seems to be well-explained and organized with proper references. I like the way he categorizes the chapters and how he makes brain chemistry real simple to understand and the biochemical basis on how the nutrients work. His chapter on supplements for mood elevation was excellent. Since I have mild depression, his step by step guide is very practical. I also liked his chapter on the top nutrients that improve vision. I followed his guidelines on the fish oil intake and did notice within two days my vision being sharper and clearer. There is a good glossary of the scientific terms used in the book and an excellent index. Over the years I have read quite a few books on brain supplements, and, without a doubt, this is the finest book on this topic that I've come across so far.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sahelian's brain is. 26. Juli 2000
Von J Davies
Format:Taschenbuch
Once again Ray Sahelian has written THE handbook for supplements helpful for keeping our busy brains functioning. I sound like his publicist, but I'm not. He knows what he is talking about! I first encountered his work through a site, iHerbLtd. This company sells a whole variety of supplements and depends upon his work for documentation. No longer is diet enough, and thank goodness that Sahelian has done the research he has to educate us on what supplements are good. I am also thankful for reliable sites like iHerbLtd who use his research as a basis for the products they stock. I feel like I am in good hands as I am taking my own health into my own hands.

5.0 von 5 Sternen ENHANCING YOUR MIND, MEMORY AND MOOD 13. August 2001
Von Pieter Uys - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I have found Dr Sahelian's books on Creatine, DHEA and Pregnenolone very useful, and this one is no exception. He discusses brain function and chemistry and how it relates to nutrition, and provides information on how to improve your mind through lifestyle factors. This is followed by detailed explanations of how supplements work, supported by research findings, under the categories Memory Boosters, Mood & Energy Lifters, Methyl Donors, Keeping Your Brain Young With Antioxidants, Mind Energizers, Amino Acids, Brain Hormones, and Psychoactive Herbs. There are extensive mind-boosting programmes for the age groups 25 - 40, 41 - 60 and for age 61 and over. The last chapter provides natural prescriptions for depression, vision enhancement, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. This well-researched, well-written book is rounded off with a glossary, bibliography and references plus a thorough index. It is the most complete and authoritative book of its kind and also a pleasure to read. I would have liked to find more information on Deprenyl, but it is a drug - not a natural supplement - and thus outside the scope of this book. Similar informative books that deal with nutritional supplementation include William Regelson's 'The Superhormone Promise' and Timothy J Smith's 'Renewal.' Mind Boosters however, remains the best overall reference book on cutting-edge nutrition for a healthy mind.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Best to date On the Subject! Boost Your Mind! 26. April 2001
Von Bladerunner B26354 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
"Mind Boosters" by Dr. Ray Sahelian, as of today, is the most authoritative and detailed book on the way food and herbal supplements can affect your mental performance. As the cover implies, your mind, memory and mood can be profoundly influenced by what you take in your body, key among it various herbs, tinctures and many supplements and remedies found in specialty stores, and more often, even in the supermarket.

"Mind Boosters" will reinforce or strengthen your knowledge of what you may need to know most in your life. I have made irrefutable links between foods, moods, herbal supplements and driving behaviors, or just human behavior in general. Dr. Sahelian is the authority on neurochemicals and the way in which hormones and neurotransmitters play a central role in regulating the body and fight to maintain a precise biochemical balance. Dr. Sahelian points out the role of St. John's Wort, Ginko Biloba, 5-HTP, GABA, Kava, and lots more, including the role of fats in the diet (did you know that the brain is made up of 60% fat?). All this perfectly spread over the 22 chapters. Part I starts right at the beginning with, "Using Your Brain..." and can have an ordinary person with reasonable capacity to take in new information beginning to understand some important functions about brain and mind and body interaction. It's like this doctor doing a basic, bare-bones sketch to brand new medical students--and the book does have great, easy-to-understand illustrations. For these reasons, this book will have you so smart by the time you are done that, if you follow the advice (with the help of a doctor), you will have little need to worry about suffering the effects of neglecting your body's precise chemical balances. Also discussed are the role of receptor sites, and how they can be intercepted by pseudo-neurons, or neurons that were "faking" the fingerprint of another.

Dr. Sahelian is a terrific writer. Not one word is wasted, every sentence informs, every chapter educates. I've memorized most of the acronyms, and when you start rattling off these terms at a stressed, depressed or oppressed person because their diet is lacking, they stand back at their impression of your knowledge. "I think you should start by cutting back on the coffee," I tell them gently, and furthermore "pick up a good Vitamin-B complex, along with a choline and inositol supplement. You might also consider some gamma-aminobutryic acid or dihydroepiandrosterone, along with a 50-mg. supplement of 5-hydroxytryptophan." They say, "Whoa! I had no idea I needed those." The bottom line: the foods and drinks we assimilate are all precursors to hormones and neurotransmitters in the body. So if someone is not eating right or getting enough fluids, well, would that explain why, for example, they are depressed, anxious, obsessed, frustrated or angry all the time? Check your diet first! "Boost your mind" is the cornerstone of Dr. Sahelian's work, in which he really knows his subjects. This book should be worth scholarly credits. Recommended for all educated readers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mind Boosters 28. Oktober 2000
Von jeff jacobs - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I found this book to be an excellent and very readable source of information regarding the current wave of cutting edge natural supplements for enhancing mind, memory, and mood. Dr. Sahelian presents information based on research and also upon his own personal experience with the supplements being discussed, which provides both an objective and a personal perspective that gives the work depth and believability. I was especially impressed with Dr. Sahelian's web site, referenced in the book, which allows his readers to ask follow up questions directly to the Doctor himself (he actually answers!). Buy this book.
