The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN; Washington, D.C.) has launched a new video series called “4 Things to Know,” which explains complex dietary supplements industry topics for non-industry audiences. Hosted by CRN staffers, the video series allows industry stakeholders to communicated baseline levels of information to their audiences which can include consumers, legislators and staff, media contacts, and others.

“Industry issues can get complicated quickly,” said Brian Wommack, CRN’s senior vice president of communication, in a press release. “The new series drills down to the basics using short, digestible videos to help a broader range of audiences understand how industry issues affect them.”

Currently, there are two videos published in the series. The first video was on the topic of age restrictions for dietary supplements presented by CRN president and CEO Steve Mister to explain CRN’s opposition to proposed state legislation that limits access to sports nutrition and weight management products by age.

The most recent video in the series is about probiotic dietary supplements presented by CRN’s senior vice president, scientific and regulatory affairs, Andrea Wong, PhD. The video is part of the organization’s ongoing effort to educate stakeholders about the intricacies of probiotics and how these live organisms differ from other dietary supplements. Future topics in the series will include third-party certification of supplements, mandatory product listing, sports nutrition supplements, and supplement use for nutritional shortfalls.
