The Vitamin Solution: Two Doctors Clear the Confusion about Vitamins and Your Health

Editorial Reviews

‘This consumer guide to therapeutic vitamin use takes a welcoming, conversational approach to a clinical topic. Doctors Block and Levitan draw on their experiences with patients and have come to the conclusion that many common ailments, from depression to sleep problems to weight issues, can be eased (they are wisely careful to never say cured) by vitamin supplementation. Sections cover different health problems and the possible vitamin solutions. There is a 30-page listing of vitamins that highlights each individual vitamin, with easy bullet points of why one might take it. It bears noting that the authors sell their own supplements online, but this is not a sales-pitch book. This extremely user-friendly volume should find a home in the circulating health collections of most libraries.’

I was really grateful to receive a copy of The Vitamin Solution, in addition to vitamins themselves! Before I started any of the vitamins I read the copy and was so impressed by how easy it was to read and how informative it was. I marked sections for my husband (not a big reader!) to go over himself, and I think this book will be a great reference to keep around the house. I took notes while reading, found myself googling to get further information, and chatting about what I learned with several friends. Really interesting read!

‘The Vitamin Solution by doctors and co-authors Arielle Levitan and Romy Block is fantastic! It’s completely up to date, thoroughly researched, has a massive glossary of references to substantiate the claims, and it’s written by two doctors who know a lot more than what they learned in medical school. So few doctors seem to know the first thing about nutrition, let alone about vitamins and minerals, what we need, how much, and how these elements affect our bodies and well-being. The Vitamin Solution dispels the myths and clarifies the grey areas with detailed information. Believe me, you will come away well informed on everything you’re not sure about. If there was ever a Bible on vitamins and nutrition, The Vitamin Solution is it. The Vitamin Solution is so enjoyable! The tone throughout is conversational, inviting. I feel like I’m sitting down and talking with a couple of clued up friends. And it’s that tone that had me turning pages as fast as I do when reading an absorbing novel: I couldn’t wait to get to the next chapter on exercise, weight loss, migraine headaches, thinning hair, blood pressure, diabetes. The Vitamin Solution addresses all these subjects and so much more.’

‘THE VITAMIN SOLUTION is a worthwhile resource for information on vitamin supplements, their usages, and recommended dosages.’
