The new book Your Vitamins are Obsolete. The Vitamin Revolution: A Program for Healthy Living and Healthy Longevity by Sheldon Zablow, M.D. is a must read. Dr. Zablow eloquently describes how the proper forms of B12 and folate are critical for proper health and body function especially for the brain, nervous, and vascular systems. I applaud his ease at describing this essential medical information. Being a seasoned child psychiatrist for 40 years has helped him explain complex matters simply to the reader for greater comprehension.
This is an important book both for laypeople and healthcare providers. Our current healthcare system is doing the public a great injustice. Dr. Zablow describes a helpful adjunct or even a cure for some, using active B12 and L-methylfolate— not folic acid and cyanocobalamin. This has been overlooked for decades because physicians are not being taught the basic biochemistry of the B vitamins and their necessity for health and life.
Dr. Zablow describes vitamers, methylation, nutritional epigenetics with ease, descriptive writing and clever graphics that assists comprehension. His book also lays out sound healthcare tips that the average person either needs to learn or have reinforced.
This book could save your life, health, sanity, maybe even your marriage, as well as money. His preventative approach provides simple tools to educate readers about nutrition, stress, inflammation, sleep, and most importantly the critical vitamers (methylcobalamin, adenosylcobalamin, and L-methylfolate).
It’s about time mainstream medicine catches up to the facts presented in this book and begin practicing it!
Bravo Dr. Zablow, brilliant work!
