Natural Medicines is a robust and authoritative resource for information related to complementary and alternative medicines, natural therapies, natural ingredients, and natural products. The content is evidence-based with the aim of being as objective and unbiased as possible, and monographs in the database include references for the information provided (Natural Medicines 2019a). It is a fee-based subscription product, but pricing is generally fair and it can be bundled with other resources of interest. There are some inconveniences, such as not working with discovery services or allowing Boolean or quotation searching, but overall the database is easy to use, reliable, and informative.
