Introducing Our New Health Resource: The Natural Medicines Database

natural-medicines-databaseOne of our great missions at Village Green Apothecary is to provide support and education to our customers. On a daily basis, we field numerous questions about various health challenges and help navigate customers through confusing or conflicting news reports. We also provide guidance to customers wanting to take nutrients safely alongside prescription medications.

In an effort to provide even greater care, we have a new comprehensive tool to use with customers. Called the Natural Medicines Database, it is considered the most authoritative resource available, providing unbiased, scientific clinical information on dietary supplements, natural medicines, and complementary, alternative, and integrative therapies.

Some of the key features of this in-depth tool include the ability to check for drug/nutrient interactions, effectiveness, nutrient depletions, safety during pregnancy and lactation, as well as adverse effects. In addition, the Natural Medicines Database has over 1,200 food, herb and supplement monographs with information about effectiveness, dosage and administration, adverse effects, and warnings with medications. There are also monographs on health and wellness, sports medicine and medical conditions. All Database materials are updated on an ongoing basis and are thoroughly referenced.
