After a year of low sales for the supplement industry, growth is starting to be seen across many vitamin and supplemental products. As health and wellness trends and preventative care take a front seat in the healthcare industry, consumers are turning towards supplements to help them reach desired health goals set by themselves and doctors. In particular, InterHealth ingredient UC-II® has seen tremendous growth over the past few month and is quickly becoming an industry leader.
Rise in Supplement Category
Over the past 12 weeks, the vitamin category has grown 5% in sales, according to the Jan. 4, 2016, Chain Drug Review. An increase in health-related trends and PR has shown consumers the positive benefits of adding supplements and vitamins to their daily diets. Another contributing factor is the push for knowledge of supplements and vitamins before taking them. Stores are continuing to alter their presentation of supplements as well as offer in-depth insight into what specific supplements and vitamins are made of and can do for potential buyers. This helps in building trust with the consumer while encouraging them to try new items.
UC-II Leading in Sales
Interhealth UC-II® is a joint supplement that has given consumers the opportunity to add type II collagen to their diet without large glucosamine pills that are normally taken two to three times a day. UC-II® is a once a day small capsule that provides strong and noticeable results to support joint health. Products containing UC-II® have been rapidly growing as top selling products and have seen more than 60% growth. As joint relief continues to become a prominent issue among the aging population, UC-II® should continue to see growth.
Joint Relief as an Entryway
For consumers starting to add supplements to their diets and getting to know the wide variety of products available, joint relief is an easy entryway supplement. UC-II® is a one-pill-a-day easy alternative for joint health supplement compared to the usual three-a-day, large glucosamine pills, making them user-friendly. As the vitamin and supplement category continues to grow in sales, it’s predicted that UC-II® will also continue to grow in sales over this next year.
