DSLD About


The Dietary Supplement Label Database (DSLD) from the Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), provides information taken from the labels of dietary supplement products sold in the United States. This information includes the name and form of the ingredients, amounts of the dietary ingredients and percent of the Daily Value (DV) of nutrients, the manufacturer/distributor, health-related claims, warning statements, and an image of the package label.

Launched in June 2013, the DSLD is a resource for researchers, health care providers, and consumers. It can also be an educational and research tool for students, academics, and other professionals. This information can be used in different ways. Research scientists, for example, may use the DSLD in studies to derive nutrient intakes from supplements. Health care providers can determine the contents of the products their patients are taking. Consumers can learn more about the ingredients listed within the Supplement Facts label by clicking on ingredient names.

The DSLD offers users a variety of Search and Download options. Search results can be downloaded and saved for future use.

Other DSLD features include:

The FDA enacted new labeling regulations in 2016, that will be fully implemented in 2022. During this transition, some labels in the database conform to the "old" (pre-July 2016) format while others conform to the "new" (post-July 2016) format. The “old” and “new” label formats are described under the Resources tab.

The ODS developed the DSLD with input from federal stakeholders. They include many NIH institutes and centers, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service; the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics, Division of Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys; the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition; and the Department of Defense’s Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences.
