The Textbook is a detailed and scientifically cited discussion of clinically useful nutrients; it highlights the parenteral applications and covers oral uses when there is an advantage to that route of administration. Vitamins and minerals can be administered in small doses to support normal body physiology, and they can be given in pharmacological doses to encourage positive outcomes in specific
disease states. Safety is paramount and we give complete drug descriptions of each substance listed, including pharmacology, contraindications and adverse reactions. The book will be fully indexed.
