The dietary supplement industry is thriving with U.S. sales anticipated to far surpass $50B in 2020.
With America’s growing interest in self-care, approximately 75% of American adults take dietary supplements—including vitamins and minerals, botanicals, sports nutrition, weight management and specialty supplements (like omega-3s, prebiotics, probiotics, etc.).
