Natural Standard, the evidence-based database about complementary and alternative therapies, is pleased to announce that 100 Foods, Herbs & Supplements monographs are now available in French. All Foods, Herbs & Supplement topics will be available in this additional language in the coming months.
As with the Natural Standard Spanish language monographs, the French monographs are written at the Bottom Line reading level, providing an abbreviated review designed for use by patients or professionals. Each monograph is adapted from a Natural Standard comprehensive systematic review, and includes evidence-based information on effectiveness, side effects, interactions, dosing, pregnancy and breastfeeding.
The French language monographs may be accessed by selecting “French” from the language drop-down menu within a Bottom Line Monograph. Users may also search for available French topics using the Advanced Search feature. Currently available monographs include popular topics such as chamomile, gingko, ginger, green tea and melatonin.
