Synopsis

'Dr. Hatfield has taken his many years of experience in the field to produce a complete encyclopedia of information that every sports enthusiast should know. This is the first book I have ever seen that combines the knowledge of herbalism with performance training and a nutritional focus. It teaches readers how foods are digested and assimilated by the body and how athletes can adapt their bodies to the stress of competitive training while enhancing their cardiac output and mental concentration. "Nature's Sports Pharmacy" is a must for everyone who is athletically inclined, including athletes and personal trainers interested in keeping their competitive abilities in this growing and competitive field' - Dr. Earl L. Mindell, RPh, PhD, author of "Herb Bible", "Vitamin Bible", and "Prescription Alternatives".Athletes of all sports will benefit from this comprehensive and integrated health and fitness program based on the power of herbs and herb-based phytochemicals.

Written by two nutrition and fitness authorities, this valuable resource explains: how herbs cleanse the body of impurities; sharpen mental focus; have a normalizing effect, allowing the body to recoup and adapt to the stress of intense workouts; improve strength and energy levels dramatically; have great nutritional value help prevent or reduce body fat; and, stimulate the immune system "Nature's Sports Pharmacy" brings the best herbal substances together for use in one coherent, integrated system for peak athletic performance.This authoritative book contains the most up-to-date scientific information on the power of newly discovered phytochemicals and provides a thorough and complete appendix on all commonly used herbs, with dosages. Frederick C. Hatfield, PhD, is the author of more than 50 books on sports fitness, weight training, and athletic nutrition. Frederick C.
