Dietary Supplements Pocket Companion

This is a pocket companion based on the "MRW, Dietary Supplements". 88 monographs are arranged alphabetically. How to use this book section will be rewritten. The introduction is omitted and aims to use the same symbols as in "Stockley's Pocket Companion".Based on the MRW, Dietary Supplements, this pocket companion will cover truncated versions of the 82 monographs in the large reference work with an additional 6 monographs (88 in total). Monographs will be listed alphabetically and will contain: brief description, constituents, human requirements, dietary sources, action, possible uses (in tabular form), bioavailability, precautions/contraindications, pregnancy and breast-feeding, adverse effects, interactions, dose and brief references (no more than ten per monograph). This title will therefore be a concise, quick reference for health professionals and will include a brief assessment of the latest evidence.

Dietary Reference Intakes: Guiding Principles for Nutrition Labeling and Fortification

Since 1997, the Institute of Medicine has issued a series of nutrient reference values that are collectively termed Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs). The DRIs offer quantitative estimates of nutrient intakes to be used for planning and assessing diets. Using the information from these reports, this newest volume in the DRI series focuses on how the DRIs, and the science for each nutrient in the DRI reports, can be used to develop current and appropriate reference values for nutrition labeling and food fortification.
Focusing its analysis on the existing DRIs, the book examines the purpose of nutrition labeling, current labeling practices in the United States and Canada, food fortification practices and policies, and offers recommendations as a series of guiding principles to assist the regulatory agencies that oversee food labeling and fortification in the United States and Canada. The overarching goal of the information in this book is to provide updated nutrition labeling that consumers can use to compare products and make informed food choices. Diet-related chronic diseases are a leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States and Canada and helping customers make healthy food choices has never been more important.

Dietary Supplements 3rd Edition

The use of dietary supplements has continued to increase steadily in recent years with, for example, 40 per cent of UK adults said to be taking such supplements on a regular basis. Although they are widely used, the use of dietary supplements is controversial in relation to their efficacy and safety and much recent research has been published considering these questions. This comprehensive new edition of "Dietary Supplements" has been completed revised and updated to include the latest findings on the most commonly used dietary supplements. This edition contains 82 regularly structured monographs with information on: uses, action, safety (adverse effects, pregnancy, interactions), efficacy, and dosage; full revised and updated with findings from the recent literature on common supplements such as: aloe vera, calcium, creatine, glucosamine, selenium, and vitamin C; includes 10 monographs new to this edition on: methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), nickel, pcynogenol, phytosterols, psyllium, quercetin, resveratrol, silicon, tin and vanadium; considers regulations relating to dietary supplements in UK, Europe and the USA; and useful appendices include a summary of interactions with conventional medicines.
