The Nutraceutical Revolution is the complete low-down on the most commonly prescribed nutrients - the ones Dr. Richard Firshein turns to most often in his practice, the most versatile, the safest, the ones that have demonstrated the most promising, tangible benefits. In approaching this book, Firshein took stock of the most frequent ailments and complaints he saw in his patients - everything from fatigue and stress to high cholesterol and sinus problems. What he found was that he consulted a core group of supplements - vitamins, herbs, minerals, amino acids, and phytochemicals - time and again to treat these various ills. That core group resulted in twenty chapters - one per nutrient - that tell you everything you need to know about these little pills (or teas, or powders) and that enable you to design a healthy, healing regimen specifically tailored to your needs. As a bonus, Dr. Firshein includes a final chapter that points the way to the future, outlining "future nutrients" that have shown encouraging results in early research and testing.
