From Library Journal:

Registered nurse Navarra and Lipkowitz, an M.D. and former pharmacologist with training in nutrition, have compiled a resource that explains vitamins, minerals, and food supplements, including many medicinal herbs. Each substance entry briefly describes what the substance is, where it is found, and how it is used and gives its scientific and common name. Some health conditions, e.g., acne, cardiomyopathy, and macular degeneration, are also included, as are nutritional terms. The entries aim to provide "non-judgmental information on nutritional options." Negative effects and toxic amounts are noted, as are recommended daily allowances for vitamins and minerals, but herbal preparations and recommended dosages are not included. Extensive appendixes include the food pyramid, a glossary, a history of nutrition, and other worthwhile information. A good, interesting book packed with information.?Janet M. Schneider, James A.

From School Library Journal:

YA-Over 500 alphabetically arranged entries about vitamins, minerals, food supplements, and other nutritional-related terms include basic facts, benefits, dosages, recommended daily allowance, dietary sources, adverse effects, etc. Appendixes include a food pyramid chart, a nutrition chronology, a drug and nutrient interactions chart, and "The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994." The key to using this book to its best advantage is the comprehensive index, although not all plants have scientific name entries. A solid reference guide to nutritional options, this title will be useful for students doing biological, nutritional, chemical, and sports-medicine research.
