I bought this book last week and it's excellent value for money. It has all the information about vitamins and herbs; it gives recommendations as well as warnings; advice about specific ailments, and so much more. I was surprised at the depth of information given. For example, my doctor told me that the herb known as horsetail helped halt osteoporosis when taken along with calcium. He also recommended boron. Nowhere else have I found confirmation of that information but this book mentions both. Unfortunately, you will not find horsetail listed in the index. That is the only complaint I have about the book that, occasionally, just occasionally, something was not listed in the index that was referred to in the text. If you care about your health, I recommend it. It's a no-nonsense book.

I had purchased Earl's bible at a used book store. Alas, it was from 1979. Even though it may have been "out of date" the information was right on! The Anniversary edition was just as good as I expected. The preliminary findings of some "vitamins" from 1979, were just as he wrote, the new bible just solidified the information. I take this information and compare with my other research, Earl is usually in-line. I don't believe anything verbatim, but this a great basis for natural health. I tell everyone who is interested in vitamins and natural supplements that this book is a MUST have in their library.

I first bought this book in the 80,s. Have given away a number of them.
I would highly recommend this book to everyone.
When I first bought the book I was having lower back problems. After reading the book I bought my first bottle of zinc. Within 3 days my back pain had stopped.
My wife & I both take vitimans, minerals, and herbs mentioned in the book.
Each vitamin is mentioned,what it will do for you as well as how much to take.
well woth the price.

There is no way to be 'finished' with a reference book.

That said, I have a deep appreciation for the comprehensiveness of the book. It lists the vitamin or mineral form that is most usable by the body--as well as its food sources.

Why not take iron with calcium? Why should thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2) and B6 be taken in equal quantities? This is stuff your doctors just don't have time to tell you. It isn't their expertise.

The cautions and cross reference with interactions bring to my attention what prescribers might need to be involved in my choices, which is really all of my team of physicians.

I have eczema and have always been told it is related to stress. It is. I've observed that first hand. There are 11 references to eczema and underlying causes, other than stress.

Cravings? Covered to a degree. Vegetarian or vegan, got you covered. There is a symptom checker portion, a glossary and an index.

I'm keeping this book forever--or until the next version comes out. And no, it's not in my lending library. *grin* While this is not the Physician's Desk Reference, it certainly doesn't need to be and is more portable! (The price is right, too.)

Have been back in the gym for about three years as an "old timer" - watch the diet plus we do not drink alchohol, coffee and/or smoke.... for 40 years. Have been aware of how important it is to eat correctly and have been taking a vitamin pill every day and wondering exactly what the benefits were beyond what we thought was taking place.

This "Vitamin Bible" turned out to be a re-education regarding every aspect of feeding the body and mind - interesting reading and beneficial regarding necesary information for anyone considering the basics for living "better". Although we considered ourself to be "enlightened" we are realizing, with the turning of each page, that we have barely scratched the surface of knowledge as relates to Vitamins, Minerals and Food for the maximization of our physical potential to live and feel better..... to live well within our body.

I found this book to be very helpful in guiding my selection of vitamins and supplements that will fit my age and lifestyle. I wish there was more information given about various clinical studies however.

The best book I've ever bought & read was Earl Mindell's first vitamin bible. He covers so many aspects of vitamins, nutrients, deficiencies, toxicities, sources, amounts needed & much more, all depending on what your trying to do with your health & well being, & what you're trying to figure out about it.
He includes so many things other books tend to over look. When he explains how nutrients are thought to work in the human body, and where they come from, you get to take ownership of your health & well being, & get an amazing awareness of what's working & what's not by trusting he's sharing information he's collected from so many different sources, and way before most other authors & media. I knew so many important things about managing my health LONG before I heard the media sharing such info with the public.
I haven't read all the other books written, though I read about 3 others, I've always had answers to questions about nutrients & health others who'd read other nutritional health books didn't know, constantly.
When I was able to afford all the specific nutrients I saw most beneficial for what I wanted to achieve in my mind & body maintenance program, I felt amazing. When I wasn't able to afford each individual nutritional supplements anymore, my energy, well being & looks diminished. Now I'm able to afford some, and I choose some key factors, as well as, a multi-vitamin supplement reflecting most of the very nutrients Dr. Earl Mindell shared in his book & I'm feeling the difference again.
My ability to read labels & actually know what most of the ingredients & supplements are & what they do has made an incredible difference in my health & well being, as well.
