Nutrition Evidence Database

visit the Nutrition Evidence Database

Nutrition Evidence is an online collection of high quality nutritional science and lifestyle medicine research, designed to support practitioners’ clinical decisions that enable their delivering effective, individualised evidence-based recommendations. Nutrition Evidence is available as an open access resource that’s searchable in various simple but powerful ways, from running a simple search, to using advanced search syntax or browsing papers by clicking on keywords. Click here to sign up for a free account.

Current key features include:

  • Almost 40,000 (as of November 2017) high quality research papers relevant to all practitioners in the areas of functional nutrition, dietetics, and lifestyle medicine. Papers have been selected to provide the best evidence available for clinical interventions on humans, ideally randomised controlled trials and systematic reviews, as well as meta-analyses and some cohort studies.
  • BANT enhanced papers, further curated by the Nutrition Evidence Editorial Board and enriched by an indexing team of BANT members, based on a lifestyle medicine model that takes into account not only clinical imbalances, but other aspects key to the individual’s health such as stress, sleep and physical activity.
  • A selection of papers include plain language summaries so that they can be understood by the clinician and the non-clinician alike. These papers will appear first in any search results. The indexing process is ongoing and new papers will be added weekly.
  • A wide selection of filters allow you to find papers discussing key factors and keywords. For example, you’ll be able to search for papers on environmental inputs (e.g. diet or pollution) or structural integrity (e.g. musculoskeletal health)
  • Account personalisation features will allow you to subscribe to notifications and to set up new content alerts.

An array of exciting new features, including expert reviews, paper recommendations by the Editorial board, case reports and more are just around the corner, so please register for a free account today.
