Nutrition and Neurological Disorders offers readers a comprehensive reference on the effect of dietary regimes in a wide variety of neurological diseases. With its broad coverage of different types of diets, including the Mediterranean diet, this book allows readers to learn about the results of diets and their correlation with specific disorders. This includes diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, and MS and severe neurological conditions such as brain injury, stroke, headache and migraine. Examining various compounds, the book's broad coverage allows readers to learn more about the role nutrient deficiency plays in the pathology of many conditions, along with treatment potential.
This volume provides a platform for research on vitamins and minerals and on future investigations of these compounds.

  • Summarizes diet and nutrition research for a variety of neurological conditions
  • Contains chapter abstracts, key facts, dictionary of terms, summary points and applications to other areas of neurological conditions
  • Covers diet in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, and MS, among others
  • Includes conditions such as migraine, headache, stroke, and brain injury
  • Discusses the Mediterranean diet in the context of brain health
