Overview

Once, senility -- the slow deterioration of mental capacity -- was considered to be an irreversible death sentence. Today, scientific evidence shows that targeted nutritional therapy can be used to fight a variety of diseases affecting the brain, including Alzheimer’s, arteriosclerosis, and chronic malnutrition. In this book, acclaimed medical researcher Dr. Abram Hoffer and holistic health writer Dr. Morton Walker present a program of diet and supplementation specifically developed to prevent or reverse senility. They also provide an invaluable guide for all people who wish to achieve optimum health for their thought processes and memory.

Newly updated, Smart Nutrients provides a detailed account of the most important breakthrough nutrients currently being studied. These nutrients include niacin and vitamin C, as well as minerals such as zinc, chromium and many others -- each of which plays a crucial role in the maintenance of mental health and the treatment of specific diseases. As the link between our mental clarity and our nutritional intake becomes more apparent, scientists are providing us with vital information that can be used today to insure a better health tomorrow. Smart Nutrients represents an important bridge to a more fulfilling future.
