The Oxford Book of Healthy Foods provides valuable information on the science behind herbal medicines and nutrition. Ranging from fruits, nuts and cereals to vitamin supplements and natural herbal remedies such as Echinacea, St. John’s wort, and kava. It is a comprehensive guide to an array of health foods available today. It explains their role in our diet and the potential benefits to our well being, and examines the claims about each, those which are supported by scientific evidence. Beautifully illustrated with botanical drawings, this is a unique reference work for everyone with an interest in healthy foods, healthy eating and the scientific facts behind it all.
