Wellness isn’t a formula. It’s about finding what works for *you*.
At Greatist, we get that, and we’re here with one goal: to help you discover what works for you and how to apply it.
We sift through the noise, delivering expert-vetted health info through a real-life lens. We’re here to support and inspire, so you can take actions every day to live your best life. Whether we’re talking breakfast, breathing, or brain health, you can trust that all Greatist content is evidence-based, science-backed, and expert-approved.
You can also trust us to talk honestly about mental health, sexual health, relationships, race, and gender — with empathy and inclusivity at the forefront of everything we do.
Read on for more details on our editorial process, medical team, and community, advertising, and privacy policies. We hope you tap into all of Greatist’s resources — more than 7,000 articles and 3,000 recipes, along with workout videos, wellness challenges and workshops, daily newsletters, product reviews, and a growing social community of more than 2 million.
Thanks for being a Greatist and for sharing your wellness journey with us.
— The Greatist team
Greatist is dedicated to making wellness information accessible and actionable for people of all lifestyles and budgets, with the goal of helping individuals make informed decisions about their health. Our content is created, fact-checked, and reviewed by qualified writers, editors, clinicians, and other contributors.
Our content undergoes a robust review process from medical professionals to ensure accuracy. We have strict sourcing guidelines and cite or link to primary sources in each article. Our experts continually monitor the health and wellness space, and we update our articles when new information becomes available.
Greatist’s Medical Affairs team ensures that our content, products, and services uphold the highest standards of medical integrity. Our dedicated team manages an extensive medical network of more than 100 professionals who cover more than 50 specialties, providing medical review, expert POVs, fact-checking, and clinical guidance. Greatist’s physicians, nurses, public health experts, and patient advocates help ensure that the information we publish is accurate, evidence-based, current, person-centric, and trustworthy.
Our community of Greatists is at the heart of what we do. Through our social communities, we keep the conversation going on our favorite topics — food and nutrition, fitness, skin care, mental health, the latest wellness tech and products, and more. Follow us and join in on all the Greatist fun!
Ad & Sponsorship Policy
Greatist receives funding from advertisements, sponsored content, and other partnerships, such as affiliate programs. The reality is that funding from our advertisers allows us to cover more conditions and provide more powerful experiences, including video, animations, and input from a range of experts. Be assured that we’re absolutely inflexible about our editorial autonomy. Other than seeking their input about broad topic areas, we never allow sponsors to influence the content we create.
We follow specific ad and sponsorship guidelines to ensure that advertising never gets in the way of editorial integrity. Greatist chooses the ads, does not endorse any products, distinguishes all ads from editorial content, and clearly distinguishes between sponsored and non-sponsored content.
Greatist is dedicated to protecting the privacy of readers and customers. Because customer privacy is our top priority, we proactively embed privacy into the development and curation of our services.
At any time, all customers — regardless of geographical location — can make a data subject access request by using our rights request form. In doing so, customers can access, delete, restrict, or correct all personal information that they have shared with Greatist.
Greatist will share your personal information with third-party marketers only after you have provided explicit consent to do so.
We are committed to the advancement of customer privacy initiatives. We are a Silver Corporate Sponsor of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).
