„As the portion of the population identified as“aging adults“rapidly expands, there is increased attention being directed to treatment options beyond those traditionally used in the past. This book presents a detailed review of the health problems occurring with significant frequency in aging adults which have potential to be treated or ameliorated using nutraceuticals as foods and dietary supplements as well as other complementary and alternative therapies. It challenges dieticians and nutritionists to explore the nutritional components in botanical extracts that can have important health promotion benefits and risks to ensure safe consumption. [Amazon]“
