The Linus Pauling Institute's Micronutrient Information Center (at Oregon State University) is a source for scientifically accurate information regarding the roles of vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals (plant chemicals that may affect health), and other dietary factors, including some food and beverages, in preventing disease and promoting health. All of the nutrients and dietary factors included in the Micronutrient Information Center may be obtained from the diet, but many are also available as dietary supplements.
Natural Medicines contains over 1200 monographs on natural ingredients, including vitamins, herbs, minerals, non-herbal supplements, naturally sourced chemical compounds, and foods. Each monograph provides scientific, evidence-based information on Safety, Effectiveness, Interactions, and more! In addition to the Professional version, each monograph is also available as a Patient Handout in English, Spanish, and French. These are designed to be given to patients and are written so they can be easily understood by a general consumer. Also explore the Nutrient Depletion Checker!
