Natural Standard is an international research collaboration that systematically reviews scientific evidence on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).[1] Together with the faculty of Harvard Medical School, Natural Standard provides consumer information on CAM for Harvard Health Publications[2] and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.[3] Natural Standard also provides information on herbal medicine and dietary supplements to MedlinePlus,[4] which is produced and maintained by the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).


Natural Standard Research Collaboration was founded in 2000 to serve as a clearing house for information on evidence-based medicine covering numerous healthcare disciplines. This international effort involves authors, editors, and peer reviewers from multiple academic and research institutions.

Natural Standard was taken over by Therapeutic Research Center in 2013.[5][6]
