Feeding your Body and Brain
Feeding your Body and Brain:
A healthy diet after brain injury is essential for optimum recovery. Nutrition is an important part of brain injury recovery because both the brain and body need proper nutrients in order to heal. Without good nutrition, malnutrition is common and can impair healing, rehabilitation and increase risk for infections. Learn how nutritional therapy with food and nutritional supplements can help provide important calories, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, and fiber to improve both our overall health and our brain function.
