Fountain of Youth Nutritional Therapies By David Vastola
There is ample scientific evidence suggesting that taking a daily multivitamin-and-mineral supplement is a sensible precaution to help avoid nutrient deficiencies. But making sense of sometimes confusing and contradictory information can be a challenge. In The Fountain of Youth, Dr. David Vastola demystifies the complicated world of vitamins, minerals, supplements, and herbs.

Dr. Vastola’s common-sense approach, combined with the science to back it up, explains what product labels do not. He makes clear that FDA, RDA, and directional use provided on bottles are not necessarily individually applicable. Since each person’s physical makeup is unique, the author “defragments” nutrient information based on individual characteristics.

The author maintains that the term “vitamins” is a misnomer; because when it comes to nutrient therapy, consumers must consider not only vitamins but minerals, trace elements, and herbal remedies. In The Fountain of Youth Dr. Vastola provides fundamental information about how, when, and why all forms of supplements are so important. His book provides a guide not only to understanding these important nutritional additives, but to using them appropriately as well.
