Research has shown that many Americans are not eating balanced, healthy diets, leaving them deficient in critical nutrients, such as vitamins D and E, and calcium and magnesium. And, on the flip side, those who do follow a healthy meal plan by reducing processed food and red meat are actually at risk of getting too little of key nutrients like iodine and iron, respectively.  To fill nutritional gaps, many adults are increasingly using dietary supplements. These can be beneficial, but if not taken correctly, can be dangerous to one’s health. 
In writing The Vitamin Solution, the doctors cut through conflicting data about vitamins and minerals to provide a concise, medically-sound approach to supplement use. They explain which vitamins and supplements can be helpful, which can be harmful, and which are altogether unnecessary. They explore health conditions and symptoms including diabetes, hair loss, fatigue, hot flashes, and more; and address preventive care, providing insights on topics such as screening tests, weight loss, and preserving memory.
