Many foods available in the average supermarket are relatively high in fat, sugar and salt, but low in essential vitamins and minerals which help reduce the risk of cancers and heart disease.
What we need to do is ensure we are getting these important nutrients and a healthy diet will almost always form the backbone of any nutritional approach to achieving better health and combating illness, according to author Dr John Briffa.
There are, he believes, several advantageous reasons why the addition of natural supplements to compliment a healthy diet may be useful.
This factfile summarises the actions, uses and cautions of different vitamin supplements and offers advice as to when they should be used and why.
The book is intended as a guide to the natural approaches and supplements that may benefit a number of conditions.
It is organised into chapters that look at everyday health, skin and eyes, the immune system and a section on women's health and pregnancy. Each of these chapters provide useful information on the factors which are thought to underlie a particular condition, as well as dietary changes and supplements that may help prevent or improve it.
This is a very useful guide into choosing the right foods and supplements which could in the long run ensure a healthier, longer life. The book does advise the reader to seek professional guidance for some of the conditions mentioned. --Louise Coyle --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
