We discuss nutrition after traumatic brain injury with Angus Scrimgeour, PhD. Dr. Scrimgeour is currently serving as a nutritional biochemist at the United States Research Institute of Environmental Medicine where he investigates evidenced-based applications of nutrition for traumatic brain injury. His review, cited below, serves as the focal point of our interview and describes four nutrients demonstrating potential benefit: omega-3, zinc, vitamin-D, and glutamine.
