About This Book
WHAT YOU MUST KNOW ABOUT VITAMINS, MINERALS, HERBS AND MORE Choosing the Nutrients that are Right for You - by Pamela Wartian Smith M.D. Almost 75 percent of health and longevity is based on lifestyle, environment, and nutrition. Yet even if you follow a healthful diet, you probably don’t get all the nutrients you need to prevent disease.
Fruits and vegetables begin to lose their nutritional value immediately after they are picked. Cold storage continues this destruction of nutrients. The best and most effective time to eat fruits and vegetables is immediately after they are picked. Unfortunately, most of us are not in a position to do so. Along with cooking, most of the other processes by which food today is prepared destroys a lot of the nutritional value it may have retained after being picked. Because so much of the food we eat is deprived of essential vitamins and minerals, we must look elsewhere for these nutrients. In today’s society, the consumption of supplements has become fundamental for good health.
There are many questions that come to mind when you think about staying in perfect health. Do you need to take vitamins and other nutrients? In what amounts should you take them?
