Supplement Savvy

What's New:

Looking for credible information on supplements? You may be interested in reading the “AACE Medical Guidelines for the Clinical Use of Dietary Supplements and Nutraceuticals” from the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE).

While the guidelines are geared to physicians, they can be a helpful resource on the hidden dangers associated with interactions between drugs and supplements. For example one nutraceutical in particular, St. John’s wort, has been shown to have potential interaction with medications such as cyclosporine, iron and oral contraceptives.

For an electronic version of the guidelines, see www.aace.com/clin/guidelines, or visit www.aace.com for further information.
