Putting health and happiness first
Feeling in top form and staying healthy has always been the ultimate quest of people around the world. As consumers become ever more health savvy and conscious of the interplay of health, nutrition and wellbeing, the importance of preventive measures to protect and safeguard health is driving growing demand for nutraceutical supplements.
What are Nutraceuticals?
A nutraceutical product is a type of food or dietary supplement that can be consumed frequently (daily). Normally, nutraceuticals are used with preventive health care goals. The nutraceutical actives might include herbal or natural products but also chemically synthetized drugs. Vitamins, minerals, herbal supplements such as ginseng, curcumin, non-herbal supplements such as pro-biotics, fish oils etc. are among the key nutraceutical products.
Nutraceutical products are increasingly gaining attention during the past few years – even more since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, the number of U.S. consumers taking vitamin supplements at least occasionally, has increased from 36% to 43% since Q1 2020.[i] Furthermore, four in five (79%) U.S. adults take dietary supplements, an all-time high, according to the Council for Responsible Nutrition’s 2021 Consumer Survey on dietary supplements (November 2021).[ii]
