The Important Role Nutrition Plays in Our Brain Health with Edward Park, Ph.D., Founder of NeuroReserve
Dr. Edward Park’s father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and Lewy Body dementia, starting when he was only in his 40s. It was devastating for the family and ultimately placed their family in a caregiver role. Dr. Park's family history of neurodegenerative disease ultimately led him towards looking at brain health and the powerful role that nutrition plays in reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other neurodegenerative conditions.
Dr. Edward Park is the founder of NeuroReserve, a preventive health and nutrition company focused on healthy brain aging. I enjoyed this conversation immensely. I learned so much from Dr. Park- he has the ability to take complex information and makes it easy for us to digest. If you have any interest in nutrition, brain health, and preventing neurodegenerative decline - this is a fascinating conversation you do not want to miss. Thank you, Dr. Park, it was a pleasure to talk with you!

Edward Park is the founder of NeuroReserve, a preventive health and nutrition company focused on healthy brain aging. Ed’s background spans over 15 years in the fields of nutritional therapeutics, biopharmaceuticals, and medical devices, where he directed R&D, testing, and regulatory approval of first-in-class products to treat people malnourished by cystic fibrosis, short bowel syndrome, pancreatic cancer, and preterm birth.
Ed’s family history of neurodegenerative disease (his father) ultimately led him toward brain health, where he realized the powerful role nutrition and dietary patterns can play in reducing risk of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other neurodegenerative conditions. This inspired him to develop the next generation of nutritional products to protect long-term brain health and cognition: expert-designed by leading neurology and nutrition researchers, data analytics-driven, and based on the best dietary evidence – philosophies that led to the founding of NeuroReserve.
Ed holds a Ph.D. in chemical and biomolecular engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he was a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellow (U.S. Department of Defense) for research in living cell-based assays. He also holds a M.S. and M.B.A. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
