A guide for doctors and pharmacists
Vitamins, minerals, trace elements, amino acids or essential fatty acids – micronutrients have a great potential to maintain metabolic function and to prevent and treat diet-related diseases. However, nutritional requirements and optimal dosage vary considerably between individuals.
This pocket reference provides accurate information to ensure optimal and save use of micronutrients. Clearly structured, it informs on 54 micronutrients, covering requirements, indication groups, deficiency signs and symptoms, dosages, specific interactions, and safety aspects. In addition, the preventive and therapeutic use of micronutrients for all age groups as well as for many common disorders is described.
A comprehensive guide that helps to implement micronutrient application in everyday clinical practice – for the benefit of patients.
“This book itself has the character of a vitamin – small and easily-digestible portions of high quality.“
