The Dietary Supplement Caucus has reformed in Washington, DC, with the same four co-chairs as in the previous Congress.

In a letter to Gregg Harper and Robert Brady on the Committee on House Administration, the four co-chairs – Senators Orrin Hatch and Martin Heinrich and Representatives Jason Chaffetz and Jared Polis – registered the group.

The caucus serves as an informal, bipartisan group that facilitates the discussions among lawmakers about the benefits of dietary supplements, provides tips and insights for better health and wellness, and promotes research into the healthcare savings these products provide, they explained in their letter.

“The caucus seeks to enhance Congressional attention to the role of supplements in health promotion, disease prevention and address the regulation of the supplement industry,” ​they added.

All of the 33 Caucus members remain, with the exception of five who have retired, explained a spokesperson for the Council for Responsible Nutrition.
