Details

Every day, people must make choices. Perhaps nothing is as important, however, as what people choose to eat or not eat. While hunger, whether it be a desire to have a feeling of well-being or purely due to habit, motivates many of our choices, nutrition plays an essential role in our health and how successful we will be in terms of our aging process. The term “nutritional supplements” is generally used to include vitamins, minerals, herbs, meal supplements, sports nutrition products, natural food supplements, and other related products. This monograph, while not an exhaustive compilation of all nutritional supplements available, is meant to guide any reader who is interested in adding quality of life to their remaining years, and perhaps even extending their life span.

Whether it is a vitamin, mineral, macronutrient, super food or herb, we have attempted to present the data available (whether anecdotal, based on animal/cellular models, or well conducted scientific studies in humans), to help the reader make a wise choice as to what to include in their diet. This may include a specific food, an ingredient, or nutritional product depending on the person. Having a more successful aging process is up to each individual, and the authors hope this monograph will help to provide an individualized path to success! (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
