About the Book

Based on a very thorough review of the literature, the article weaves a perspective on the debunking of hyperlipidemia utilizing a Functional Nutrition model—or how the presence or absence of a substance in a food, determines how the body uses that food. By detailing, biochemically, how underlying nutrient deficiencies or excesses lay the foundation for elevated Low Density Lipoproteins, a different understanding is created for alleviating symptoms of an unhealthy diet through informed dietary choices and proper nutrient status.
