Through Natural Medicines you can get ratings of the safety and effectiveness of dietary supplement products, as well as information about ingredients, to help you make informed decisions.

We encourage you to consider only using products rated 8 or above on the Natural Medicines scale. These are in the green area of the scale and have evidence of safety. Ratings in the yellow range mean that data for at least some of a product’s ingredients are insufficient or inconsistent with regard to safety or effectiveness. The red area indicates a product contains ingredients associated with well-known safety concerns and/or proven ineffectiveness.
