Dietary Supplements 4th Ed

dietary-supplementsBook Reviews: SINCE THE SECOND EDITON of this book was published five years ago, the UK and worldwide market for food supplements has continued to grow. Vitamins and minerals – in multiple ingredient products and as single ingredients – remain very popular. Indeed, multivitamins and minerals have the largest share of the market in most countries. However, since the last edition, there has been an enormous growth in interest in other supplements, such as carotenoids, glucosamine, is flavones, omega-3 fatty acids and probiotics, substances that were hardly known to the general public until very recently. Technological advances are increasingly making it possible to include such ingredients in both dietary supplements and foods, hence the blurring of boundaries between ‘supplements’, ‘functional foods’ and the ‘nutraceutical’ ingredients that go into them. As the range of substances identified in foods, and knowledge of their potential benefits in disease, continues to grow, it is likely that

Technological advances are increasingly making it possible to include such ingredients in both dietary supplements and foods, hence the blurring of boundaries between ‘supplements’, ‘functional foods’ and the ‘nutraceutical’ ingredients that go into them. As the range of substances identified in foods, and knowledge of their potential benefits in disease, continues to grow, it is likely that many more such substances will be included in food supplements in the future.

There are still, of course, many uncertainties, and the inevitable ‘more research needed’ will continue to apply to many dietary supplements for some time to come. However, this should not prevent health professionals from giving evidence-based information where it exists and being honest enough to say ‘research has not yet provided the answers’ where appropriate.

The easy-to-use encyclopedic format continues to be retained and it is my intention that this book is primarily a reference source, which I hope will continue to be useful to many colleagues around the world.
