If you are not in the market for multivitamin manufacturing, you are missing out. The multivitamin market was valued at $44.12 billion in 2020 and is expected to rise 6.2% annually until 2028. According to the National Institute of Health, multivitamins account for 14% of supplement purchases and 38% of vitamin/mineral sales. This means there are millions of consumers waiting for a multivitamin product like yours.
Research attributes this unprecedented growth to a new consumer health consciousness caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, especially when it comes to the popularity of immunity-boosting multivitamins. But there are thousands of multivitamin combinations available, each with a wide range of benefits. Discover the benefits of multivitamins and how our team can help make your multivitamin manufacturing campaign a success.
The Types of Vitamins & Minerals
There are roughly 30 vitamins and minerals that, when combined, form a multivitamin. The following is just a sampling of the vitamins and minerals that multivitamins used, as well as where they can be found naturally:
- Vitamin A: Found naturally in two forms, retinol and carotenes. Retinol is in fortified milk and some dairy products, and can also be found in fish oils, especially cod liver oil. Carotenes are found in vegetables like carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, and squash.
- Vitamin B1 (thiamin): Vitamin B1 occurs naturally in brown rice, watermelon, or ham.
- Vitamin C (ascorbic acid): This antioxidant powerhouse is found in a variety of fruits and fruit juices, as well as in bell peppers and tomatoes.
- Vitamin D: Also called calciferol, Vitamin D can be produced by the body when exposed to sunlight. However, it is hard to generate enough of this vitamin through the sun alone, especially if wearing sunscreen. Fatty fish can help increase your levels of vitamin D.
- Calcium: Essential for bone and heart health, this mineral can be found in yogurt, cheese, or milk.
- Iron: Needed to help carry vital oxygen to every cell in the body, iron is found naturally in red meat, poultry, and eggs.
Many Americans do not receive their allocated daily amount of these and other vitamins and minerals. Multivitamin supplements can help by filling in the nutritional gaps in a consumer’s diet. But why exactly is it important to get daily doses of these nutrients? What added benefits can multivitamin supplements provide?
