Popular Health Supplements: The Scientific Evidence
The value of various dietary supplements is sometimes hard to evaluate, given the conflicting reports and misinformation often transmitted by the media and marketing departments.  Presented here is a rather brilliant infographic that visualises popular dietary supplements according to their tangible health benefits as supported by scientific evidence.
The image is presented as a “balloon race”, where the higher the bubble indicates the greater the scientific evidence for its effectiveness.  Importantly, the supplements are only effective for those conditions listed inside the bubble. Some supplements also appear in multiple bubbles as they have been shown to affect a range of conditions, but the evidence varies.
