Learn the questions you need to ask your supplement providers
If you are serious about taking a proactive approach to your health—about making sense of the confusing world of nutrition and supplementation—Secrets of Supplements will give you the background information, facts, and questions you need to find optimal nutrition:
A Mini Course in Nutrition
In the first three chapters of the book, you will find a simple, readable, explanation of how your body functions. You will learn how nutrition affects your cells and why your health depends on the foods and supplements you ingest.
Next, you will learn about the nutritional components of the foods you eat:
- Proteins and enzymes
- Essential Fatty Acids
You will find out what they are, what they do, how they interact with each other, and why we need them.
The final chapter of the book explains all about supplements—the good, the bad, and the totally terrific. You will learn how to:
- Plan your supplementation
- Understand when you need qualified nutritional advice
- Identify supplements that make unsupported claims or contain inferior ingredients
- Find supplements made from the finest ingredients in the most available forms
A Plan of Action
Take the Ten Totally Terrific Questions from the last chapter when you go to your supplements providers. Ask them for answers. With the information and understanding you have gained from reading our book, listen carefully, and THEN make your buying decision.
Never again will you head to the health food store with only a vague idea of what you want and an optimistic faith that the products you buy will live up to their promises. Now you will be able to demand facts and understand their implications.
