The New Reality of Nutrients
The New Reality of Nutrients Much scientific evidence suggests that taking a daily multi-vitamin and mineral supplement is a sensible precaution to help avoid nutrient deficiencies. Vastola wrote The New Reality of Nutrients to demystify the complicated world of vitamins, minerals, supplements, and herbs. His common-sense approach, combined with the science to back it up, explains what the product labels do not. FDA, RDA, and directional use provided on bottles are not necessarily individually applicable. Each person is unique and Vastola’s technique of defragmenting the information on a personal level is enlightening.
“Vitamins are really a misnomer when it comes to nutrient therapy because you must consider not only vitamins but minerals, trace elements and herbal remedies. In The New Reality of Nutrients, I go into a great deal of fundamental information about how, when, and the reasons why they are so important. I also outline my theories on aging and how to avoid the aging process. I also explain how current concepts are so outdated, like the RDA (recommended daily allowance), that need to be disregarded. As a sad corollary, nutritional collegiate programs lack an integrated approach to standard medical therapies, make them burdensome and ineffective. That’s the reason why I wrote this book to bridge what I see as a major obstacle in understanding and in using appropriately these nutritional supplements.” – Dr. David L. Vastola, D.O.
