Complete Idiot's Guide to Vitamins and Minerals

You're no idiot, of course. You buy the freshest produce at the supermarket and plan and prepare nutritious meals. But when it comes to picking and choosing a vitamin or mineral supplement, you don't know A from K. Don't stress out yet! The Complete Idiot's Guide to Vitamins and Minerals helps you become knowledgeable about the nutrients you need.

In this Complete Idiot's Guide you get:
Part 1: The Vital Keys to Good Health
Part 2: The A to K of Vitamins
Part 3: Minerals: The Elements of Good Health
Part 4: Exploring Other Supplements
Appendix A: A quick reference chart for common health problems such as acne, colds and insomia

Appendix C: Includes a in-depth glossary of the terms throughout the book.
This book is packed with infomation and I found this book very useful.
In its introduction, the author explains briefly on why vitamins and minerals are so important for us to stay alive. Throughout the book there are plenty of charts, including many that list good food sources for the various vitamins, minerals, and other supplements. The book also gives tips on how to get the most from your foods and supplememnts, how to avoid problems like overdoses or bad interactions with other drugs or supplements. It also includes a sidebar with a duck character letting you know what supplements don't work or what to avoid because it dosen't work.
