Dear Network Colleagues,
You'll find no snake oil here!
The National Library of Medicine's Dietary Supplements Labels Database
includes information from the labels of over 3,000 brands of dietary
supplements in the marketplace, including vitamins, minerals, herbs or
other botanicals, amino acids, and other specialty supplements.
Information in the database is based on the Dietary Supplements On-Line
Database (DSOL) (c)2005-2009 by DeLima Associates.
The database is designed to help both the general public and health care
providers find information about ingredients in brand-name products,
including name, form, active and inactive ingredients, amount of active
ingredient/unit, manufacturer/distributor information, suggested dose,
label claims, warnings, percentage of daily value, and further label
The Dietary Supplements Labels Database now includes several interface
improvements, more products, and an auto-complete (search) feature.
Other recent additions/changes include:
* Search box on every page
* Age/gender categories under "Products"
* Glossary page with A-Z anchor links
* Updated FDA Recalls, FDA MedWatch and FTC Actions
* More products (3000)
* New "Help" page.
Links to other NLM resources, such as MedlinePlus and PubMed, are
provided for additional health information. In addition, links to
related Fact Sheets from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA),
Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS), National Center for Complementary
and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), and the National Cancer Institute
(NCI) are also available.
