The end of the book contains page after page of studies backing up his claims. I highly recommend this book to anyone who's intimidated by aisles of products claiming this-and-that health benefits. Even if you're knowledgeable about this topic, after reading this book you will learn exactly which supplements will benefit you the most, and how to get them as cheaply as possible, which will definitely add up over time.
Acting on some of the suggestions in your other works over 18mths:
* diet modifications away from seed oils, refined carb, starches
* berberine/curcumin/cod-liver-oil supplementation, whey/casein shakes on workout days
* intermittent fasting
* blood donation (every 8 weeks until optimized range, then annually)
Prior to reading - Ferritin @ 250, ~18mths later, Ferritin @ 39 (through blood donation 5x).
A1c dropped 3/10's of a point (5.6 to 5.3)
Waist size dropped 3"
Weight dropped 10lbs.
Bench press hit all-time-highs (for me, 225x3).
Blood pressure dropped 120/85 -> 110/60 (they take it every time I donate blood, so I have a plot over time - dropping refined carb did the trick).
Vitamin D increased from 29 (borderline low) to 50 (optimal).
The book has saved me money by helping me to not spend money on unnecessary supplements and has helped me improve my health and performance by recommending supplements that do work.
I like this book. I learned a lot from it. I've benefited by reading the author's tweets and blog (Rogue Health and Fitness) for several years. He's smart and, I believe, honest.
The author supports his assertions with numerous scientific references, organized by chapter at the back of the book. If he cites a study done in mice, he tells you. Human studies admittedly carry more weight.
Have you wondered if protein supplements and creatine are good for muscle strength and energy? Does magnesium increase testosterone levels? Does berberine have beneficial health effects? The answers are here.
The author gives good advice regarding calcium supplements that even most physicians don't know about.
Great recommendations on food.
No book is perfect, and this one is no different. It has no index. So if you're curious about turmeric or supplements that control diabetes, you have to scan the whole book. My copy didn't include references for chapter 11. Page numbers for chapters in the index didn't match the actual chapter starts. My least favorite sentence in the book was something about Dr. Joseph Mercola being a trustworthy source of health information; he is not (search "mercola" at ScienceBasedMedicine.org).
Again, I like this book, learned much from it, and recommend it. If you're taking lots of supplements now, read this book to find out if they help, harm, or are only good for making expensive urine.
