Overview

Part One of The Real Vitamin & Mineral Book explains exactly why you need vitamin and mineral supplements not only to protect yourself against disease, but to reach the highest levels of mental and physical well-being. It then tells you how to design your own personalized nutrient plan based on your specific health problems and nutritional needs. Each of the following chapters discusses a particular vitamin, mineral, or other supplement - including new and exciting supplements like DHEA and melatonin. It presents factual information on that nutrient, and tells you exactly what that nutrient can, and cannot, do for you. The authors then provide a scientifically documented Optimum Daily Intake (ODI) to follow, which is generally well above the government's Recommended Daily Intake (RDI). Included are sample worksheets and supplement checklists to help you incorporate these healthful supplements into your busy lifestyle.
