Reviewed by Lisa Jones for Readers' Favorite

Nutritional Grail by Christopher James Clark is a book about how to gain a better diet from the food we eat. It talks about how our modern day food differs from how it was years ago and the changes it has had on society. When you consider all the additives and GMO chemicals used widely in modern products, it is drastically higher than it was. Although the government has tried to regulate some of these additives, a lot more still can be done. I was fascinated to learn that many clinical studies that have been carried out could have been correct for one person yet drastically wrong for another due to one's genetics. I was able to identify my own personal flaws through this delightful book which, to be fair, I knew I possessed, but did not realise the damage it may have had on my body. It not only contributes to heart disease, but also slower metabolism and a whole range of other problems. It certainly made me question my child's diet and the changes that I must make now to safeguard them in the future.

Nutritional Grail by Christopher James Clark is an informative book but the thing that sets this apart from other of the same genre is the quality of the information within its pages. I have read a great deal of health and diet books over the years but this title told me things that I never knew. It was also interesting to learn how the author became interested in this topic which was greatly influenced by his grandmother who died of heart disease after years of battling against it. I especially liked the story about Perceval and the Fisher King, which I found endearing. The author himself did state what would qualify him to write a book on this topic and I can see by personal events and education he is a master in my eyes. I found the detail and the research that went into this book second to none. The content was also explained to the reader in a fun way which was interesting and held plenty of key facts at the same time. By far, this is the best book of its genre that I have read in a long time and well worth reading.
