What’s New in Nutraceuticals?

The growth of the industry is not just due to more people catching on to the benefits of nutritional supplements; it’s also driven by new research and ingredients. Forbes Health Advisory Board members anticipate supplements will continue to increase in popularity in 2024, specifically noting the following:

  • Creatine
  • Ashwagandha
  • Berberine
  • Matcha
  • Mushrooms and mushroom powders
  • Marine collagen and sea moss
  • NAD supplements
  • Magnesium
  • Vitamin D
  • Supplements aimed at aging and brain health
  • Astaxanthin
  • Choline

Additionally, other areas of interest cited by experts as trends to watch in 2024 include:

  • Nervous system regulation
  • Stress management
  • Sleep
  • Emotional health
  • Personalized wearable technology

These supplements are available in various formats, offering consumers a wide range of options to meet their preferences and lifestyle needs:

  • Powders: Nutraceutical powders are versatile and easy to incorporate into beverages, smoothies, or food. They offer flexibility in dosing and can be customized to individual preferences.
  • Liquid Supplements: Liquid nutraceuticals are convenient for individuals who have difficulty swallowing pills or prefer a more easily absorbed form. They can be consumed directly or mixed with water or juice.
  • Gummies: Nutraceutical gummies are a popular choice, especially among children and adults who dislike swallowing pills. They offer a tasty and enjoyable way to consume supplements and often come in various flavors.
  • Capsules: Capsules provide an alternative to traditional pills and can contain powders, liquids, or oils. They are usually easier to swallow than large tablets and offer precise dosing.
  • Sublingual Drops/Sprays: Sublingual administration involves placing drops or sprays of liquid nutraceuticals under the tongue for rapid absorption into the bloodstream. This method bypasses the digestive system and may offer faster effects.
  • Topical Products: Nutraceuticals can also be formulated into topical creams, lotions, or patches for targeted delivery to the skin or specific areas of the body. Examples include vitamin-infused skincare products or transdermal patches for pain relief.
  • Functional Foods: Functional foods are ordinary foods that have been enriched with added nutrients or bioactive compounds to provide specific health benefits. Examples include fortified beverages, snacks, and cereals containing added vitamins, minerals, or probiotics.

How to Stand Out In Nutraceuticals

Being part of the bustling supplement scene is a thrill, but standing out in the sea of brands can be a challenge. So, how do you make a splash and shine amidst the crowd of competitors?

  1. Personalization: One Size Doesn’t Fit All: Engage customers with interactive health quizzes designed to assess their current health status, dietary habits, and wellness goals. Based on the quiz results, provide personalized recommendations for supplements and lifestyle changes to help them achieve their health objectives. By understanding your customers’ unique needs, preferences, and health goals, you can create personalized product recommendations, customized packaging, and targeted marketing campaigns that resonate on a deeper level. Whether it’s offering personalized vitamin regimens based on individual health profiles or providing personalized nutrition advice from certified experts, personalization shows your customers that you truly care about their well-being, fostering loyalty and trust in your brand. Utilize data from customer profiles, purchase history, and health assessments to recommend products tailored to each individual’s health goals and dietary needs. For example, a customer interested in joint health may receive recommendations for supplements containing glucosamine and chondroitin. 
  1. Recurring Subscriptions and Auto-Replenishment: Imagine never running out of your favorite supplements again. With recurring subscriptions, customers can set up automatic deliveries of their preferred products at regular intervals, whether it’s monthly, quarterly, or customized to their specific needs. This hassle-free approach not only ensures a steady stream of revenue for your business but also provides convenience and peace of mind for your customers. No more last-minute trips to the store or worrying about running low on essential vitamins – it’s all taken care of automatically. Here at ShipWizard, we specialize in order fulfillment for subscriptions, making it easy for nutraceutical brands to implement recurring subscription and auto-replenishment programs. Our advanced fulfillment technology integrates with your e-commerce platform, allowing for automatic processing of subscription orders and accurate inventory management. From order processing and picking to packing and shipping, we handle it all, ensuring that your customers receive their supplements on time, every time.
  1. Going Above and Beyond: Consumers expect white-glove treatment, particularly if they are new to your brand. When it comes to customer service, speed and personalization are key. Respond promptly to customer inquiries and concerns, offering personalized assistance and solutions to address their needs. Whether it’s answering product questions, resolving issues with orders, or providing guidance on health and wellness, prioritize delivering a positive and memorable customer experience at every touchpoint. Once an order is placed, keep your customers informed every step of the way, from order confirmation to shipment tracking. Provide clear and transparent communication regarding order status, expected delivery dates, and any updates or delays that may arise. With ShipWizard as your fulfillment partner, you can offer fast shipment options to your customers, so they don’t have to wait long before starting their new supplements regimen.
