Through Natural Medicines you can learn how to make informed decisions and get ratings on dietary supplements and natural products, as well as information about product ingredients. This database is available free to all DoD personnel with a “.mil” email address through the “Find out how your supplement rates” button on this page. Once you set up your account, you can log on from any computer using your .mil email address as your user name.

We encourage consumers of dietary supplements 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 are lacking. The red area indicates well-known safety concerns and/or proven ineffectiveness.

We encourage consumers to consider using only supplements in the green zone.
