For the past while, we've been developing advances in technology that have allowed us to analyse and incorporate important data from reviews on other websites. From a base of less than 2,000 native reviews, we just launched yesterday a massive increase to effectively 49,000 reviews. What this means, from your perspective as a user of this site, is that you now have a ton of information from which to draw from, in your search for the right supplements to match your goals.
By using natural language processing techniques, we can now analyse the texts of reviews and determine with reasonable accuracy, which effects the users experienced from their use of the supplements. This includes beneficial effects, such as fat loss, strength, or taste, as well as side effects, such as headaches, crash, and nausea. So far, out of the 42 effects we have on this site, we've covered over half of them to include in the extraction process, and out of the 39 side effects we list, we've included almost half of them. We chose these effects on the basis of the popularity of the searches for them over the past few years on this site and its predecessor, as well as having knowledge of the fact that people are most interested in the side effects of a supplement, as much as its main purported effects.
