Find Evidence
These databases contain articles from health-related magazines and scholarly journals.  You may not be able to find articles specific to a particular product, but you will be more likely to find information about the health problem or issue the product claims to relieve. Use this information to evaluate your product. Consider, for example, what medical research suggests is the best way to treat the problem.  Does your product follow these recommendations?
