5.0 out of 5 stars An essential guide, 7 Oct 2010
This review is from: The Essential Guide to Vitamins, Minerals and Herbal Supplements (Paperback)
I found this book thorough, informative,and truly essential for anyone interested in natural remedies for many of our most common complaints, although I do regard it as complementary rather than as an alternative to a visit to the doctor.
By the way, I am 74 years old and have had 2 major operations for cancer. I am now in excellent health and with the help of the information in this book I intend to stay that way. D. West Sussex.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must!, 16 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Essential Guide to Vitamins, Minerals and Herbal Supplements (Paperback)
A must for anyone, who takes or is thinking of taking supplements. Tells you what each supplement can be used for, unlike many lables which give a description of product and doseage, but not always what the condition they are intended to help. Also, it list aphabetically, illness/conditions, and which supplement would be the most suitable. A very informative read, that tells it as it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good guide to better health, 25 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Essential Guide to Vitamins, Minerals and Herbal Supplements (Paperback)
The cover of this second edition says it is the essential guide. And so it is.
Many of us do not eat enough healthy foods. As a result of changing farming practices, including the trend towards more and more genetic modification of plants, health promoting nutrients may be lacking from the food we eat. Consequently, it has become necessary to add supplements of essential vitamins and minerals to the diet.
Dr Brewer's guide is in two parts, one describing the supplements that are available, the other offering treatments and advice for common health problems. She gives descriptions, benefits and recommended dosages based on extensive research and where applicable also offers life style suggestions.
The supplements she describes are available from some pharmacies without prescription, health food shops, many supermarkets, and mail order companies. However, the guide tells you when to be cautious about using supplements and when to take medical advice. The vitamins and minerals described are intended to promote and maintain good health and are supplements to pharmaceutical medicines.
One reason that the book is essential is that it fills a gap caused by legislation that prevents full information being given on the packaging of many supplements. This enhances its value as a source of guidance for anyone who is concerned to obtain the best effects from their daily diet.

5.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive no-nonsense guide to vitamins, supplements and health foods, 30 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Essential Guide to Vitamins, Minerals and Herbal Supplements (Paperback)
This well-balanced guide to vitamins and supplements is comprehensive, informative and evidence-based. I liked the fact that it is written by a GP who has researched the subject, rather than another so-called (i.e. unqualified) 'nutritionist'. It is well presented with an alphabetical guide to specific vitamins and food supplements and the benefits they can provide in the first section. The second section contains an alphabetical glossary of medical conditions with information about supplements, foods and vitamins that can help particular symptoms and conditions. This is a useful no-nonsense reference for anyone who is thinking about taking vitamins and supplements and feels confused by all the different ones on the pharmacy/health food store shelves.
