To Colgan, vitamin supplementation is important because our food supply is of poor quality by the time it reaches our tables

To Colgan, vitamin supplementation is important because our food supply is of poor quality by the time it reaches our tables. For some foods, he shows the wide variation in nutrients actually round in samples-so we don't know how much vitamin A we actually get from a carrot, for example. No hype or hocus-pocus-but a well-presented case for dietary supplements and a clear plan for determining individual vitamin and mineral needs

In Your Personal Vitamin Profile, medical scientist Dr. Michael Colgan shows how individually tailored programs of vitamin and mineral supplements lead to better health and longer life.

According to Dr. Colgan, no two people have the same nutritional needs. Consequently, an "all-purpose" one-a-day vitamin pill cannot guarantee optimum nutritional supplementation in any diet. And there are factors beyond diet that must be considered. For instance, a man who smokes twenty cigarettes a day may require as much as fifteen times the Recommended Daily Allowance of vitamin C to maintain efficient functioning of the immune system. A woman who takes birth control pills may require ten times the RDA of vitamin B12 to maintain normal functioning of the cardiovascular system.

Dr. Colgan's Health and Performance Nutrient Supplement Program -- a vitamin and mineral plan geared to the individual -- has been successful in reducing the incidence of herpes, eczema, high blood pressure, and migraine headaches. The program has also proven successful in diminishing the pain of muscle and joint injuries, and in alleviating depression. Moreover, Dr. Colgan's individually oriented supplement program has -- in a double-blind study -- helped athletes improve marathon times by an average of seventeen minutes.

Now Dr. Colgan offers his revolutionary program in this book. By following the simple formulas and tests set forth in these pages, you can at last determine your personal vitamin profile.

I have been following the guidelines in Dr. Colgan's book since it came out in 1982. I think the information in this book is as valuable now as it was when the book was introduced. About every 5 years, I review the profile to make sure that I am still on track with my vitamin and mineral intake.
I am 62 years old, have a lousy diet (lots of junk food), don't get nearly enough exercise and I am as healthy as a horse (I suppose I should knock on wood). I attribute this in large part to the fact that I am getting enough vitamins and minerals into my system thanks to Dr. Colgan.
I have not had a cold or flu since I started taking vitamins and minerals regularly; as far as I'm concerned they work. And Dr. Colgan's book will help you figure out the amounts that are right for you. It is the only vitamin book I know of that helps you establish the correct amounts; the only book that takes you and your lifestyle into consideration.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who will listen. I also highly recommend the religiously regular use of vitamins and minerals. If you don't take them regularly, they won't work for you.

I worked up my vitamin program according to the questionnaire, and I was surprised to find my headaches and brain fog disappear, along with some other symptoms that I had been experiencing because of a chronic illness; so there is still a great wealth of information in this book even though it was written many years ago. It would be awesome if Dr. Colgan would publish an up to date version with all of the new scientific advances in nutrition, but I had read quite of few of his other books before this one, and I would still recommend this one to everyone, all of his books complement each other in my opinion, as far as gaining new knowledge and advances in nutritional science.
Five Stars would not have been out of line as a rating, except for the fact that the book was written so long ago(1982). The author cannot be faulted for "telling a story" that needed to be told at the time, or for the fact that scientific knowledge has advanced and so some of the information is now outdated. For its time, it was a phenomenally informative and useful book for anyone looking for both a scientifically valid rationale for individualized and complete vitamin and mineral supplementation and a practical guide to proper individual dosages. Its worksheets for computing individualized dosages are worth their weight in gold. I have been supplementing my family's diet according to Dr. Colgan's formulations for 15 years, (with modifications as new information became available or on the advice of a nutritionally knowledgeable M.D.) and have often recommended the book to others or given it as a gift. I am delighted to learn that it is still available.
I had purchased this book after I bought Optimum Sports Nutrition, the difference between this book and OSN is startling. I find it hard to belive that the same person wrote both books. This is book is an early attempt to get the readers to realize that the vitamins and minerals and other essential nutrients that we need to maintain a healthy lifestyle are seriously lacking in todays (yesterdays?) foods. The book was written in 1982 and unfortunatly provides nothing more than rhetorical information, it reads too much like a story. I'm glad I bought Optimum Sports Nutrition before this otherwise I probably wouldnt have bothered to look at that book having seen this one. I hate to be the one to give Dr Colgan a bad review because I already have two of his other books (OSN and Nutrition for the Millenium both excellent books) but I hope some of you use this review as a heads up than as something to gauge all of his work. So to reiterate this shouldnt be the book that you first expose yourself to Micheal Colgans otherwise excellent work.
