Reviews - What do customers think about Vitamins for Dummies?

Valuable!  Jun 18, 2007
This easy-to-read gem is a great little book to have handy in your navigation of the health food stores and on-line vitamin/supplement web sites. It reveals the importance of all the vitamins and what one can expect a certain vitamin to do, as well as its limitations.
As always, you should listen to your doctor, but this book renders a silent indictment against the medical field, not because of any thing it says specifically, but because of the broad range of diseases it lists, which can be treated or at least contained by all of the vitamins and herbs it mentions, whether in foods, or in supplements. If the ailments this book says are treatable by vitamins, in fact can be treated by such vitamins, then why are the medical fields and the pharmaceutical companies
shoving so many expensive drugs at us, which merely treat symptoms?
Hmmm, what's REALLY going on?
 
Great Reference for Any Home  May 8, 2007
This is a must have for any home, I love the quick reference for different conditions at the back of the book and the format it great for quick reference if you have friends that have questions about vitamins.
You can not go wrong with this book!
 
very good...  Feb 11, 2005
This book explains why you need vitamins, what there for and what they can do for you. personally I am a big believer in being healthy in this area. Honestly a multi-vitamin just isn't enough. If you want to know more about vitamins and you are a beginner then this is a good place to start.
 
Vitamins For Dummies  Dec 10, 2002
Great book if you know little or nothing about vitamins and want to become more informed. Simple to understand. Great reference section on healing programs for ailments. Only thing negative I could say is they could possibly add more detail to touch on any limits for length of time taken and drug interatctions if any etc... Basically reassurance on the safety could be a bit more detailed. But overall, I love the book. Written easy to understand and reference.
 
Very informative resource  Nov 22, 2002
I have a friend who is very much into the "science" of vitamin, mineral and herb supplements and who has been trying to get me to take some form of supplement. I came across this book and was impressed at the amount of information contained in it. Chapters devoted to various vitamins, what they do, and what foods they can be found in. Also there is information about various minerals and herbs, as well as a part of the book devoted to various common illnesses and disorders that can be helped with the use of vitamins, minerals, and herbs.

Of course, this book is not the same as talking with your doctor about any health issue you may have and should be not be used in that manner. However, this book does give lots of tips and ideas about ways to improve your health through the use of supplements.
