Medical Review Board

You can trust the information you read here to help you through the next steps in your health journey — whether that’s for yourself or for a loved one.

Our Medical Review Board is made up of board-certified physicians, registered dietitians, health coaches, and other medical experts. Members of the Review Board vet content containing medical facts and health claims, and work around the clock to provide the necessary critique that guarantees our information is up-to-date, accurate, and verified by primary sources.

If improvements from the Review Board are suggested, our editorial team addresses and implements them immediately. It is only when a reviewer approves content that it is officially marked as “Medically Reviewed.”
