The C.A.M. Report
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.

    Among 13 products tested, 2 provided only 27% and 58% of their listed amounts of resveratrol. A third product boasted several hundred milligrams of a red wine grape complex but actually contained only 2 milligrams of resveratrol.
