Epigenetics, huh?

I've had the fortunate opportunity to sit next to Dr. David Perlmutter at a conference one time. He and I chatted about the benefits of eating coconut oil, as he eats a giant scoop of it before getting up to speak in front of about 700 people. It turns out coconut oil keeps his synapses synapsing, helping him focus.

By the way, David Perlmutter MD is a board-certified neurologist and five-time New York Times bestselling author. His books have been published in 32 languages and include the #1 New York Times bestseller Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar.

According to Perlmutter, lifestyle factors are very important in determining whether you are going to be at risk for a degenerative condition of the brain, like Alzheimer’s disease.

Please watch this short video as Dr. Perlmutter talks about Epigenetics and our lifestyle choices that actually "influence inflammation, free radicals, and even brain cell death".

Our typical high carbohydrate intake, our mostly sedate ways, the once beautiful but now desecrated food crops of wheat, barley and rye, those old football injuries, and so on, tend to increase inflammation. I personally love a big fat glutenous loaf of piping hot, right out of the oven, white bread. But I pay dearly later, as my knees begin to ache and inflammation takes hold.

We at A Moveable Feast have heard many success stories from our customers augmenting their diets with curcumin, resveratrol, and other supplements as mentioned in Perlmutter's video.

So next time you stop in for dinner at A Moveable Feast, please visit our Supplements department and check out our large selection of products.

As always, this blog is for educational purposes only. PLEASE, if you are suffering from the effects of inflammation, get with your trusted health care provider. I for one, know there is relief for those suffering and a better way.

Blessing to all my readers,
