Health Supplements

Take supplements?  Some supplements are proven to work, while others have little to no research to support their effectiveness.  So how do you know what’s real medicine and what is snake oil?  This new infographic, compiled from PubMed, shows the supplements with the greatest number of supporting documents at the top, those with few or none on the bottom, and a whole range in between.  The size of the bubbles depends on the number of google searches for that supplement, indicating interest in the general population.  Those in orange indicate supplements that have recent research out to support them.  Enjoy!
