The National Institute of Health and the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health have released a great health resource that is available instantly at your fingertips! The mobile app HerbList is available for free on the Apple store and on Google Play.

HerbList was designed to give consumers access to information about popular herbs and herbal supplements quickly and easily on mobile devices. Users can access information about the safety and effectiveness of herbal products. They can also link to additional resources for more information and mark favorite herbs to quickly view them again and access them offline.

“Providing an app for users is part of NCCIH’s effort to inform consumers and health care providers within the complementary and integrative health space. People are considering herbs and herbal supplements for various reasons, and it is important that they are aware of what the research says about safety and effectiveness ” said David Shurtleff, Ph.D., acting director of NCCIH.

Another great resource for Herbs and Supplements is MedlinePlus’ Herbs and Supplements webpage.
