Available on Amazon: The Search for the Perfect Protein

Dr Minkoff's book The Search for the Perfect Protein is available on Amazon

Dr. Minkoff is excited to announce that my new book, The Search for the Perfect Protein, is now available on Amazon. Proteins are the basic building blocks of the human body, but the truth is that most people are malnourished in amino acids, which are required to form protein—a deficiency that can lead to diabetes, obesity, cancer, and chronic diseases. In the book, he’ll show the healthful or harmful effects of the foods you eat regularly, and the importance of clean proteins in your diet while offering indispensable guidance on where to find them.
