Product review for The Complete Guide to Nutrients: An A-Z of Superfoods, Herbs, Vitamins, Minerals and Supplements
Want to know how healthy your food choices are? This updated edition of the guide to essential nutrition reveals all!
With processed foods and commercially farmed produce offering us less in the way of essential nutrition, and food industry labels exaggerating the health benefits of their product, people need straight-talking advice. Now fully updated, The Complete Guide to Nutrients is an invaluable A–Z reference that explains the active benefits of the foods, herbs, vitamins, and minerals needed for optimal health and well-being. Covering every vegetable, fruit, herb, vitamin, mineral, and supplement available, it enables you to take matters back into your own hands to stay healthy, fight illness, and cope with everyday stress. Each entry—from almonds, guarana, and kale to olive oil, St. John’s Wort, and yogurt—describes in plain English what it is, where is comes from, the form it takes, how to prepare it, its medicinal health benefits, and a recommended daily dose.
