"This book is recommended because each of the contributors has provided a concise but comprehensive coverage of the latest developments in our understanding of nutrition in relation to food and nutritional supplements. Therefore, an informed view has been created by the editors as a basis when making decisions about healthy eating or the use of dietary supplements." (Advances in Food Science, Vol. 24 (3), 2002)

"The purpose of this book is to examine the phenomenon of self medication with nutritional supplements from both a biological and psychological perspective. … This book is designed to meet the needs of those professionals who are called upon to advise patients and the general public. It also provides a valuable text for those who are researchers or decision makers in the food and pharmaceutical industries." (Food Trade Review, Vol. 72, February, 2002)
