Information About Herbal Supplements Now On MedlinePlus.gov!

Posted by on December 14th, 2005 Posted in: News from NLM, News From NNLM PNR

On December 13, NLM released another enhancement to its web-based
consumer health resource, MedlinePlus http://medlineplus.gov. In
addition to information on thousands of prescription and
over-the-counter medicines, MedlinePlus now includes over 100 herbal and
supplement monographs in English and Spanish from Natural Standard.

Natural Standard is an evidence-based, peer-reviewed collection of
information on alternative treatments. Each monograph includes a table
of uses of the supplement based on scientific evidence. The herbal or
supplement receives a grade ranging from A (strong scientific evidence
for this use) to F (strong scientific evidence against this use) for
diseases or conditions it treats. In addition, each monograph provides
information on dosing, safety, interactions, and selected references.
Many monographs also contain illustrations.

You can find Natural Standard monographs by choosing Drugs & Supplements
from the MedlinePlus home page. Search results for Natural Standard
pages have the label (supplement) following the name of the monograph.
