Comparison of 4 Methods to Assess the Prevalence of Use and Estimates of Nutrient Intakes from Dietary Supplements among US Adults

This article, published in the Journal of Nutrition, compares four different methods to assess the prevalence of use and estimate nutrient intakes from dietary supplements among US adults. The authors conclude that the most comprehensive method for assessment at the population level combines the use of a frequency-based dietary supplement and prescription medicine questionnaire (DSMQ) with data from at least one 24-hour dietary recall.
