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.
