In an effort to help you make the best decisions for your health and well-being, we occasionally partner with brands and recommend products in our content.

Any product we recommend, or brand we work with, is thoroughly vetted by our team for:

  • medical credibility
  • company reputation
  • good business practices

Ultimately, this vetting process ensures that you’ll only see recommendations for products and companies we stand behind.

Why we prioritize vetting at Healthline

We feel a responsibility to our community to make sound recommendations that have been evaluated and approved by our Brand and Content Integrity team.

We hope to have a positive impact on you and your health, as well as set a standard across the health industry.

Our vetting and scoring process

Each product or brand we review is vetted using our objective vetting and scoring system.

We evaluate each brand and product’s medical credibility and business standards to ensure the products are safe, effective, and aligned with Healthline’s approach to well-being.

As part of this process, these are some the questions we ask ourselves:

  • What is the product composition?
  • Do products and services have the potential to cause harm?
  • What health claims does the brand make, and are those claims supported by evidence?
  • Does the company operate with integrity?

Only brands that meet our criteria pass our vetting process.

Then, through our objective scoring process, the brand will receive a score based on a variety of factors, including those listed above.

We reevaluate all of our partner brands on a regular basis to ensure they continue to meet our standards.

If a product or brand no longer meets our standards, we remove it from our content. And if we do share something that hasn’t passed our vetting process, we’re transparent about why so you can make an informed decision.
