Title of Collaborative Activity:

Dietary Supplement Label Database (DSLD)

Description of Collaborative Activity:

In response to a congressional mandate, the NIH Office of Dietary Supplement (ODS), in collaboration with NLM, takes the lead on the development and maintenance of the Dietary Supplements Label Database (DSLD). The database now contains over 85,000 labels, with new data accumulating at the rate of 1,000 labels per month. The DSLD will grow to include nearly all of the dietary supplement products in the United States. All labels are verified yearly to ensure they remain current. The DSLD provides product information that can be organized and searched by users. The primary users of this database are researchers who use the DSLD to help determine total nutrient intakes from food and supplements in populations they study. Health care providers use it to find the content of products their patients are taking.
