New WellWise.org Web site focuses on supplements

BOULDER, Colo. WellWise.org on Monday launched its Web site around supplements, the science behind them and other health strategies, the nonprofit announced.

"We aspire to become a trusted source of information on supplemental nutrition and news, as well as a meeting place for intelligent consumers, nutritionists, integrative medical practitioners and researchers in this important field of dietary supplements," stated James Townsend, the site's editor-in-chief.

"It is not easy to find real evidence-backed information on supplements and nutrition on the web," Townsend said. "The vast majority of it is thinly veiled marketing for a specific brand of supplement. We feel the public needs something more objective in order to make informed decisions about health."

Visitors to WellWise.org will find information on a range of supplements, the latest on their impact on various health conditions and links to the scientific research supporting use of those supplements.
