Ever wonder what’s in the dietary supplements that you or someone you know is taking? Now researchers, health care providers, and consumers can find this out. The Dietary Supplement Label Database (DSLD) will let you search out the ingredients listed on the labels of about 18,000 (and growing) dietary supplements.
This free database is hosted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and is the result of collaboration between the NIH Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) and the National Library of Medicine (NLM).
You’ll find information here 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 information.
Supplements in the database 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.
See the DSLD for more information.
