Overview

At last, a comprehensive source of reliable information on the exploding field of nutritional supplements. The numbers tell the story: 75% of the U.S. population now uses nutritional supplements regularly, and in the past five years use of these products has increased 78%.

But how real are the benefits? What are the side effects? Recommended dosages? Now, there's a complete and unbiased reference, written by nutrition expert Sheldon S. Hendler Ph.D., M.D., that supplies the latest evidence-based answers.

From the publishers of the Physicians' Desk Reference and the PDR for Herbal Medicines, this new resource gathers solid clinical evidence from the available medical literature and presents it in a unique and authoritative manner.

Sweeping in scope, PDR for Nutritional Supplements covers the full spectrum of nutritional supplements, including:

  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Amino acids
  • Probiotics
  • Metabolites
  • Hormones
  • Enzymes
  • Cartilage products
Detailed monographs contain sections on relevant contraindications, precautions, side effects, and potential interactions with prescription and OTC drugs. Finally, a clinical research summary that synthesizes the findings of published studies on each supplement is an especially unique and valuable feature.
