“This marks the 17th consecutive year that Pharmacists recognize Nature Made as a leading vitamin and supplement brand in one or more product segments,” said James Brooks, Ph.D., vice president, science, technology and quality, Pharmavite. “We continue to be honored by this recognition and appreciate that Pharmacists continue to acknowledge our commitment to developing science-based, quality products they can trust for their patients.”
For more than 40 years, Nature Made has been a trusted leader in the wellness industry, praised for providing high quality vitamin, mineral and herbal supplements, and striving to ensure superior quality for each of the more than 240 products the brand makes.

For 19 years, Pharmacy Times has surveyed tens of thousands of pharmacists nationwide to determine the top pharmacist recommended over-the-counter products within several key health areas. In an effort to reach more consumers, U.S. News & World Report, in collaboration with Pharmacy Times, launched the Top Health Products, which lists the top recommended products in an easy-to-access and understand article in the Health section of the U.S. News & World Report magazine and website.
