PDR for Nutritional Supplements
Sheldon Saul Hendler

Now healthcare professionals, or anybody who uses supplements, can have the facts at their fingertips with The PDR for Nutritional Supplements, the first comprehensive, unbiased source of solid, evidence-based information covering a full range of nutritional and dietary supplements. And in addition, a clinical research summary synthesizes all the published findings on each supplement.
The PDR For Nutritional Supplements provides the most current and reliable information to help in making more educated choices. This comprehensive volume will also help educate the consumer as to whether the many claims being made about hundreds of supplements are true, require more research, or are unsubstantiated.

"The PDR for Nutritional Supplements is the most well organized and substantive publication that I have ever used in over twenty years as a supplement consumer and one of the best literary purchases that I have ever made. While other publications may purport to be "encyclopedic," they fall short of the mark in paying attention to detail. Dr. Hendler's PDR for Nutritional Supplements is a critical and necessary resource for anyone using nutritional supplements, functional foods and or herbs. The knowledge imparted here will allow you to take control of your life as it relates to health care and maintenance." - Carlos C. Campbell
