‘Natural Standard’ was founded by healthcare providers and researchers to provide high-quality, evidence-based information about complementary and alternative therapies and products. Grades reflect the level of available scientific data for or against the use of each therapy or product for a specific medical condition.

Natural Standard provides evidence-based, peer-reviewed, consensus-driven, decision-support tools for sponsors, manufacturers, suppliers, retailers, practitioners and consumers.

"Natural Standard provides a critical and transparent review of the evidence regarding herbs and supplements. As such, it is an extremely valuable resource for both clinicians and investigators."
