The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog is 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.

    That’s not sufficient reason to take it as a supplement, but for those who do, here’s what you should know.

    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.
