Encyclopedia of Nutritional Supplements: The Essential Guide for Improving Your Health Naturally Reviews
The information in this book is 20 years old. The book was published in 1996. A good example of how out of date that it is, is that the book says that if you take 1000 or more I.U.'s of vitamin D, that it is toxic. I take 10,000 I.U.'s a day as prescribed by my Doctor. So, please check the publishing date, which I neglected to do, before you buy a reference type book like this.
This book needs to be updated. It was copy righted in 1996 and a lot of nutritional knowledge is lost in that fact when it comes to supplements. Example. Vitamin D: in the book it states only 400 IU's daily. Anyone keeping up with nutritional science knows this is not true anymore. Much higher levels are needed and required. Of course there is still sound information in the book but if I had paid attention to how old this book is, I would not have bought it. I will be returning it.
I did not realize that this edition has a copyright of 1996 so it is not quite as up to date on supplements like D Ribose. Having said that, all of Dr. Marray's books are goldmines of information and excellent references.
Very informative. Has helped with some ailments I ended up with.
While this is not a book I would read from cover to cover, it will be a very useful reference book - which is why I bought it.
A lot of information and a little overwhelming but great information. I'm learning a lot!
I love how its laid out and was a very good start to my new adventure into natural medicine. Plus the author is the same person who co-wrote the text book used for naturopathic medicine.
