Why Is The Supplements Market Continuing To Boom?

When it comes to nutritional supplements, the business of health has never looked better. It has recently been reported that market growth is rapid. The industry is big business and covers several areas like mineral supplements and sports nutrition. According to Persistence Market Research, the global Fatty Acids Supplements market could grow by a further 13.1% in just the next few years.


We are all aware of the need to stay healthy. We know we need to work out and stay active. And we’re painfully aware of the need to eat the right diet, instead of enjoying those office muffins on a daily basis. But shopping for fresh produce takes the time we often struggle to find. Then we need to prepare it and cook it. The microwave is just so much quicker and easier.

Let’s face it. The cost of good health through eating well is just too high. Fresh, organic vegetables still come with a premium price tag. The tray of donuts displayed conveniently by the main door into the store is cheaper than a single apple. Which way are you going to go?

So many of us look to nutritional supplements to ensure we’re not missing out. After all, they come with so many optimistic promises like memory improvement, weight loss and muscle gain. The fatty acids supplements are booming because of the essential Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids they contain. These are hard to find if you’re not an oily fish lover. But the body needs them because it cannot create them.

We can look to walnut oil or Endoca hemp oil to help provide us with fatty acids. These oils are thought to help prevent heart disease and even cancer. No wonder they are flying off the shelves. Those worried about Alzheimer’s can look to coconut oil. And if you’re keen to burn more fat, you might be looking at green tea and coffee bean supplements.

Nature seems to be at the heart of many of these sales. We want natural products that can prevent the diseases that kill us the most. If it’s natural, it must be good for us after all. Best of all, there is none of the time consuming or messy preparation. It’s all there in a little bottle that can be delivered direct to our door through online shopping.

Regulating these industries has been something of an ongoing battle. There have been some promises made recently about regulating the industry globally. Regulation will help prevent dangerous products from entering the home markets. Mandatory registrations have been introduced. They are thought to be cleansing the market of harmful substances, and misleading marketing.

So where do we stand on supplementing our diets? Dietary or nutritional supplements are essential for some adults with medical conditions. For the rest of us, the USDA MyPlate program continues to suggest that eating well is possible, even on a budget. Perhaps it is our busy lifestyles that prevent us from getting what we need from food alone. Does it really matter where we get the nutrition from?
