Better Nutrition, Better Brains with Matthew John Zuraw, Founder of RememBar
Having his father diagnosed with Alzheimer's, Matthew John Zuraw and his mother started to make RememBars for him. They are delicious and full of nutrient-dense ingredients that were good for his brain. They've since perfected the recipe with advice from nutritionists, dietitians, and food scientists. They are now available for everyone. We talk about their family's caregiving journey, how they navigated his father's Alzheimers diagnosis, how impactful food and nutrition are to our brains, and what research is being done. We look at how we can present products with dignity and fight against those stigmas. We look at what’s going well and how do we lean into those things and create hope.
Matthew John Zuraw is an Alzheimer’s fighter, a volunteer for the Alzheimer’s Association where he is the chair for fundraising efforts in Southern California, and he is the founder of Better Brains, Inc, the creators of RememBar. He has lived all across the country (Pennsylvania, Washington DC, Virginia, Texas,
Iowa, and California) and he is passionate about helping others. He has three siblings, an amazing wife, an awesome foster cat, and two loving parents who have been married for over 40 years. He enjoys running, hanging out with his wife and his cat, hanging out by the fire, coffee, and chocolate.
