GNC Holdings Inc. Research Report
On August 5, 2013, GNC Holdings Inc.

The military panel report concluded, "The existing evidence does not conclusively establish that DMAA containing substances are causally associated with adverse medical events." Joseph Fortunato, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of GNC, stated, "At GNC, safety is our number one priority. GNC is delighted that the military's review of DMAA products validated what we already knew; namely, that products containing DMAA do not cause adverse medical events. This is a perfect example of how unjustified criticism of dietary supplements is simply not supported by sound science."
