Dietary Supplement Label Database from NIH

NIH in a cooperative effort between the National Library of Medicine and the Office of Dietary Supplements, has unveiled a new Dietary Supplement Label Database.

The Dietary Supplement Label Database (DSLD) contains information taken from the labels of approximately 17,000 dietary supplement products available in the U.S. marketplace. Launched June 17, 2013, this free database will grow to include an estimated 55,000 different dietary supplement products.

…the DSLD consolidates product information in one database for customized organization and searching. Research scientists might use the DSLD, for example, to determine total nutrient intakes from food and supplements in populations they study. Health care providers can learn the content of products their patients are taking.
