Backed by the latest research, Eat Well, Age Better describes, in straightforward language, how to be your own nutritionist. By taking control and optimizing your diet now with selected vitamins and other supplements, you can increase energy, strengthen your immune system, maintain a healthy brain, and embark upon your retirement years with vigour and vitality.

Eat Well, Age Better shows how you can recognize nutritional shortfalls—deficits that will increase your risk of the degenerative diseases of aging, including diabetes, osteoporosis, dementia, macular degeneration, heart disease, and stroke.  


“In an overfed and undernourished society, this book is a powerful and much-needed reminder that we are, indeed, what we eat….Eat Well, Age Better shows how nutrition is an essential foundation of our physical and mental well- being.” — Gabor Maté, MD, author of When the Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress

“Aileen Burford-Mason has distilled the wisdom of her many years in practice into a breath-takingly helpful, evidence- based guide to nutrition. Reading this book will make you feel excited and empowered to take safe, sensible, and medically sound steps to improve your health, including challenges that may have once seemed insurmountable.” — Gillian Deacon, author of There’s Lead in Your Lipstick: Toxins in Our Everyday Bodycare and How to Avoid Them

“This book may have been written for the general public but it is a must-read for the medical profession, which has traditionally neglected nutrition as a crucial determinant of health in its curricula for both undergraduate and postgraduate training.” — Craig E. Appleyard, MD, FCFP, Chair, Section of Complementary and Integrative Medicine, Ontario Medical Association
