The Real Vitamin & Mineral Book: A Definitive Guide to Designing Your Personal Supplement Programby Shari Lieberman
Synopses & Reviews
With more than 300,000 copies in print, The Real Vitamin and Mineral Book is a trusted resource for people seeking to make sense of the plethora of information about nutritional supplements. Now in its fourth edition, this book provides up-to-date scientific validation for the use of dietary supplementation in both the treatment and prevention of disease and for overall optimum health-the very facts that are not made available to consumers when they purchase supplements.
In this fully revised and updated fourth edition, readers will find:
- complete usage and dosage recommendations for the twenty-eight basic vitamins and minerals that every person needs to promote health and to slow aging;
- advanced recommendations for special conditions that may require additional supplementation; and
- quick-reference charts and tables for easily updating supplement regimens.
With clear, understandable explanations, the most current scientifically documented nutrient guidelines, and easy-to-follow charts, The Real Vitamin and Mineral Book is concise and to the point-the only resource readers will need.
'Originally published in 1997, The Real Vitamin and Mineral Book was one of the first of its kind in the health market. In this new and expanded edition, Dr. Shari Lieberman and Nancy Bruning describe how anyone can design a personalized core supplement program of essential vitamins and minerals.
While implementing the latest research, the authors expertly cut through the confusing fads and hype surrounding exotic (and less essential) nutrients to help people decide which vitamins and minerals are necessary in their diets, and the appropriate dosage. Lieberman and Bruning show how the essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients can strengthen the immune system, fight illness, slow aging, and maximize health. Included in the book are sample worksheets and supplement checklists to assist readers in incorporating these important, healthful supplements into their busy lifestyles.'
A bestselling supplement guide for more than 20 years is now completely revised and updated.
