In response to the Wall Street Journal article challenging the benefits of vitamins, the Natural Products Association (NPA; Washington, DC) is sounding off. “More and more studies show that vitamins have real and widely accepted benefits,” said NPA executive director and CEO John Gay. “These include providing nutrients, boosting immune systems, and improving overall health. Even the authors of the vitamin E study mentioned in the article noted the benefit of vitamin E with Alzheimer’s disease and age-related macular degeneration.”
