New – Dietary Supplement Label Database

Filed under: Digital Resources — Tags: — pam @ 8:15 pm

NIH logoDietary supplements, taken regularly by about half of U.S. adults, can add significant amounts of nutrients and other ingredients to the diet. Supplements include vitamins, minerals, herbals and botanicals, amino acids, enzymes, and more. They come in many different forms, including tablets, capsules, and powders, as well as liquids and energy bars. Popular supplements include vitamins D and E; minerals like calcium and iron; herbs such as echinacea and garlic; and specialty products like glucosamine, probiotics, and fish oils.

Hundreds of new dietary supplements are added to the marketplace each year; others are removed. Product formulations are frequently adjusted, as is information on labels.

A joint project of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) and National Library of Medicine (NLM), the Dietary Supplement Label Database provides product information that can be searched and organized as desired, all obtained from the manufacturers’ labels. Searches can be conducted for both “On Market” and “Off Market” products.
