About the Authors
  • Vitamins are a chemically disparate group of compounds essential for the normal functioning of the body and maintenance of metabolic integrity. In exploring the known biochemical functions of the vitamins, this book considers the effects of deficiency or excess and the scientific basis for intakes for the prevention of deficiency and promotion of optimum health. This compact and authoritative reference will be of value to students as well as specialists in nutritional biochemistry, and those concerned with vitamin nutrition, deficiency and metabolism. First Edition Hb (1992): 0-521-38144-4

    • Comprehensive review of the subject
    • Completely re-written to incorporate material published in the scientific literature since the publication of the first edition
    • Extensively referenced and cross-referenced, with recommendations for further reading at the end of each chapter
