“MedlinePlus® released 100 new English and Spanish monographs on a broad range of dietary supplements and herbal remedies. The new content is provided by Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database Consumer Version (NMCD). Some of the highlights of the new monographs include:

♦ Descriptions of herbal remedies, dietary supplements, and how they work.
♦ Effectiveness ratings for different indications.
♦ Safety concerns, including special precautions and warnings.
♦ Information on interactions with medications, foods, and other herbs and supplements.
♦ Dosages that have been studied in scientific research.
♦ Extensive lists of references, with links to PubMed®.
♦ A “Share” button on each monograph that allows users to easily share the content with friends and family.

The content from NMCD replaces the Natural Standard monographs that were previously on MedlinePlus®. If you bookmarked any monographs from Natural Standard, MedlinePlus® will automatically redirect you to the new information when equivalent content is available. Please review and update your bookmarks.”
