First released in 1943, Vitamins and Hormones is the longest-running serial released by means of educational Press. The Editorial Board now displays services within the box of hormone motion, diet motion, X-ray crystal constitution, body structure, and enzyme mechanisms.
Under the able and certified editorial management of Dr. Gerald Litwack, Vitamins and Hormones maintains to post state-of-the-art reports of curiosity to endocrinologists, biochemists, nutritionists, pharmacologists, telephone biologists, and molecular biologists. Others drawn to the constitution and serve as of biologically energetic molecules like hormones and supplementations will, as regularly, flip to this sequence for finished reports by way of major participants to this and similar disciplines.
