Vitamin And Supplement Manufacturing Trends For 2018
Nothing is quite exciting as when the latest health trend involves something that you already have to offer. For those whose business is vitamin and supplement manufacturing, it’s important to know exactly what consumers are looking for at any given time.
While there are always certain vitamins and supplements that are popular no matter what time of year it is (such as Vitamin C and Protein powders), there are always a few items that become sought-after at different times. These days, people are taking charge of their own health issues. They look for natural ways to promote their good health and wellbeing. For this reason, here are a few trends to take note of if you are in supplement manufacturing.
Natural And Gentle Detoxifiers
People are looking for ways to rid their bodies of the harmful toxins that enter the bloodstream every day in a world full of carcinogens. Trends are pointing to drug-free detoxifiers that are gentle on the system. This means that natural ingredients, such as root powders and clays, are in demand over detoxifiers that use harsher ingredients and methods of waste removal.
Natural Medicines To Control Specific Conditions
People prefer a natural way to control their medical conditions. From controlling high blood pressure to supporting underactive thyroid, the trends point toward personalized treatment. Though some conditions might be severe enough to require medication, using a natural supplement in tandem could allow for a lower dose of the medical prescription. These special formulations can make consumers feel like they are doing something good for their bodies.
Natural Sleep Aids
Everyone knows how important it is to get a good night’s sleep, but how many people are actually getting what they need? For those who suffer from sleep disorders, such as insomnia, there are plenty of over-the-counter and prescribed medications that can induce rest. Those medications, however, can have side effects that people would rather avoid. This is why natural sleep aids, such as melatonin, are seeing an uptick in the supplement manufacturing market.
Non GMO And Vegan
People are really trending toward supplements and foods that are not genetically modified. When it comes to vitamins, those that can boast a Non GMO label are often sought after. With trends leaning more toward veganism and vegetarianism, providing vitamins and supplements that do not contain any animal products (this includes gelatin) is essential in supplement manufacturing.
