"In this fast-developing the field, the update was great to see. This is a reference book more in tune with the scientific training of healthcare professionals. It goes into greater depth about each of the supplements it discusses, and has a greater focus on nutraceuticals."
-- Sharon Ewing, PhD, FNP, APRN, BS (University of Arizona College of Nursing) Doody's Review - prior edition
The author has successfully prepared a book that should interest any healthcare provider who is curious enough about the claims of the various supplements to look up what is actually known about them.
It is intended for health professionals or very savvy nonprofessionals who need to keep up-to-date with the potential harms or benefits of common supplements.
