“The reason why many doctors are skeptical on the value of nutritional supplements is because most products do not provide the nutrients the body requires – and so give little benefit. This well written and researched book enables lay people and the professions to see what the different products contain and enables them to make an informed decision on which one to choose. This is an invaluable resource in a very confusing subject, which is becoming increasingly important to help maintain health and aid recovery from illness, because of the poor nutritional quality of our food.”

“With so many brands of nutritional supplements available today, it is now harder than ever to choose which brand to truth your health to. Studies have shown that many of the leading brands available may not be performing as expected. Sadly, quality appears to be rare in today's rapidly growing supplement industry. This guide, therefore, is simply fantastic! Before you buy your supplements – I strongly advise you to consult this guide!”
