Synopses & Reviews
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.
