Sports Nutrition Supplement Manufacturing

Your Turnkey Sports Nutrition Supplement Manufacturer From formulation to fulfillment, Vitaquest helps sports nutrition supplement brands shine!

When it first began decades ago, the sports nutrition category of dietary supplements was all about bodybuilding/muscle growth. Slowly, however, it began to expand to include products for other types of sports. Decades later, sports nutrition might now be better described as “active nutrition” since it is inclusive of a broad range of supplement users such as people who lead an active lifestyle for reasons of health, fitness, recreation and profession. Examples are runners/bikers, people working out in the gym, pickle-ball players, people in the construction field whose jobs are physically demanding, and many others.

If you’re looking to enter the rapidly expanding $39.56 billion global sports nutrition market with your own line of supplements, Vitaquest is a great contract manufacturing partner. With over 45 years of experience, Vitaquest provides companies with top-tier sports nutrition supplement manufacturing services.

Flavoring Expertise

Many sports nutrition products are offered in a powdered delivery form. Consequently, flavoring is paramount. No matter how sophisticated and scientifically sound a product you offer, if it doesn’t taste good, if it doesn’t have good flavoring, consumers won’t buy a second jar after having tasted the first. This is an area where Vitaquest shines. In the competitive world of sports nutrition, we understand the critical role that flavor plays in consumer satisfaction. Our unparalleled flavoring expertise sets us apart, allowing us to create sports nutrition products that not only meet your precise specifications but also deliver an exceptional taste experience. Our dedicated team of flavor specialists utilizes cutting-edge techniques and industry insights to develop innovative and delicious flavors that keep your customers coming back for more.

Whether it’s developing custom formulas, experimenting with exciting flavors, or crafting specialized packaging, we provide the tools you need to differentiate your offerings.  

Vitaquest can custom manufacture a wide variety of popular sports nutrition supplements, including:

Pre-workout Supplements

These products can prepare the user for a successful workout by promoting energy, decreasing muscle fatigue, increasing focus, and even boosting nitric oxide.

Amino Acids

From arginine and citrulline (nitric oxide boosters), to essential amino acids and BCAA for muscle growth and repair, key amino acids can serve as fundamental building blocks in sports nutrition.

Fat Burners

There are many different nutraceuticals that can help promote fat burning to help supplement users achieve a more desirably sculpted body.

Creatine Supplements

One of the most well researched sports nutrition nutraceuticals, there are a range of cutting-edge creatine forms that are well documented for promoting excellent muscle growth and endurance outcomes. 

Meal Replacement Supplements

Fitness goals often include the desire to lose weight. When used as part of a program of exercise and a reduced-calorie diet, meal replacement supplements (including keto-friendly varieties) are a mainstay in helping users to achieve this goal.

Energy and Performance Enhancements

Whatever the sport or activity, increasing energy and performance is critical, and is a primary goal of many supplement users. The right nutraceutical combination can play a powerful role in supporting positive outcomes.

Protein/Plant-derived Protein Powders

Whether the desire is for a well-researched whey protein isolate, or a highly trending plant-based protein, one or more protein powders are an absolute must for a comprehensive sports nutrition line.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What are sports supplements made of?

Some of the common ingredients in sports supplements are:

  • Protein
  • Creatine
  • Caffeine
  • BCAAs
  • Essential amino acids
  • Other amino acids
  • Beta-alanine
  • Specialty carbohydrates
  • MCTs
  • Omega-3 f
  • Minerals
  • Vitamins
  • Fiber
  • Fatty acids
  • Herbs and herbal extracts
  • Coenzyme Q10 and other specialty coenzymes

The FDA does not approve any dietary supplements. Instead, the manufacturers and brand owners must follow established cGMP and related regulations for the safety and regulatory compliance of their supplements. 

In some cases, natural flavors can be more expensive than artificial flavors. The reason for this is that extracting natural flavors is a delicate and time-intensive procedure, making it somewhat more costly. Nevertheless, many brand owners find the slightly higher cost to be worth it since consumers generally prefer natural over artificial flavors. 

The process to manufacture sports nutrition supplements involves the following steps:

  • Formulation
  • Sourcing raw material
  • Pricing the formulation
  • Submitting purchase order
  • Ordering raw materials
  • Testing raw materials
  • Benchwork
  • Pilot batch
  • Production run and testing
  • Testing and quality assurance on the finished product

The global sports nutrition industry has grown from $35.95 billion in 2020 to $39.56 billion in 2023 at a CAGR of 10.1%.
