Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Improving the quality of dietary supplements

    An agreement between ingredient suppliers and supplement manufacturers, when implemented, should raise the confidence of consumers that the dietary supplement they buy actually contains what is stated on the label.

    Called SIDI (Standardized Information on Dietary Ingredients), it includes three information sheets.

    • Product Information Data Sheet
    • Site Quality Overview
    • Supply Chain Security Overview

    SIDI is a long awaited step towards developing good manufacturing practices in the dietary supplement industry.
