Sources of Unbiased Research on Vitamins and Supplements
FAQ: “Where can I find reliable, unbiased research and information on specific vitamins and supplements? (I want an independent resource, not some site trying to sell me their products.)”
We agree that the most reliable information is from unbiased sites—often the best are non-commercial sites. We’ve looked at many, many informational directories. Three searchable databases rose to the top of our list. In order of preference, here are our favorites:
1. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Institute/Integrative Medicine: ‘About Herbs, Botanicals & Other Products’
2. Drugs.com: ‘MedFacts Natural Products Professional database’
3. The ‘Dietary Supplement Label Database’ at the U.S. National Institutes of Health.
If you find other useful resources, send us an email and we’ll share them with our readers.
