About Book

Book Description
This book discusses in detail the effects of vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, and beta-carotene and other caroteniods on human physiology and health. The expert panel also explores the evidence relating these substances-loosely termed dietary antioxidants-to the reduction of risk of chronic disease, including a research agenda for using biomarkers to confirm the relationship between antioxidant intake and disease.

The book explains how DRIs-which include Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA), Adequate Intake, and other measures-are derived for men and women throughout their life stages. This volume reflects several important new insights: a revised approach to estimating vitamin E requirements and a complete review of the literature to allow a determination of RDAs and upper levels (or maximum intakes) for vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, and beta-carotene and other carotenoids. This book will be important to professionals in nutrition research and education.
