When brain injury strikes, whether from a blow to the head or the shock of physical or emotional trauma, successful treatment requires a multilevel approach, taking into account the health of the brain prior to injury. Multilevel, complementary treatment approaches can also be applied to strengthen the uninjured brain and help prevent neurological injury for those at high risk of concussion, post-traumatic stress disorder, and traumatic brain injury.
In this practical scientific guide, leading researcher in cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer's prevention Kedar N. Prasad, Ph.D., reveals the latest revolutionary discoveries on the use of antioxidants and micronutrients to manage and prevent concussive injury, TBI, and PTSD. He explains that increased oxidative stress, chronic inflammation, and glutamate release are common underlying factors in these conditions and should be addressed for improved management. He debunks the flawed conclusions of the neurological community that vitamins and antioxidants are ineffective for these conditions, revealing how their studies focused on specific micro nutrients rather than synergistic combinations. The author details his easy-to-follow supplement program to treat and prevent these injuries, outlining the correct daily amounts and proper combinations of vitamins, antioxidants, micro nutrients, and polyphenolic compounds such as curcumin and resveratrol.
Offering the missing complement to standard medical care of brain injury as well as a form of prevention beyond the use of helmets, this guide provides a truly holistic approach to the prevention and management of concussive injury, TBI, and PTSD.

Kedar N. Prasad obtained a Maste's degree in Zoology from the University of Bihar in India, and a Ph.D. degree in Radiation Biology from the University of Iowa, Iowa City. He went to Brookhaven National Laboratory for Post-doctoral training in Parkinson disease. Dr. Prasad Joined the Department of Radiology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine where he became Professor and Director for the Center for Vitamins and Cancer Research.
During his distinguish career, he has published over 250 papers in peer-reviewed journals including Nature, Science, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). He also contributed several book chapters and abstracts as well as authored or edited 25 books on radiobiology, neurodegenerative disease, and nutrition and cancer. He has written books on Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson disease, and PTSD for the consumers. He has been a member of numerous professional organizations, and served as an ad-hoc member of various Study Sections of the NIH. He was frequently invited to speak at the several National and International meetings including very prestigious conferences, such as Princess Takamatsu Cancer Conference in Tokyo, Cold Spring Harbor meeting on Differentiation of Cancer Cells in Long Island, New York; and NATO Conference on Radiation Protection in Kiev, Ukraine.
In 1982, he was invited by the Nobel Prize Committee to nominate a candidate for the Nobel Prize in Medicine. He delivered the 1999 Harold Harper Lecture at the meeting of the American College of Advancement of Medicine. He is a former President of the International Society for Nutrition and Cancer, and Chief Scientific Officer of the Premier Micronutrient Corporation.
Currently, he is an independent consultant for nutritional industries.
