Whether they are in supplement form or food form, vitamins are essential to our health and wellness. The following two reports explore the ever-growing market of vitamin supplements and ingredients.
Vitamins are essential for physical and mental health. By definition, a vitamin is any organic compound that humans -- or other organisms -- need for proper function. Without the right type and amount of vitamins, we would succumb to disease and illness. Thankfully, there are supplements available to help health-conscious individuals meet their body's vitamin requirements.
For humans, there are 13 vitamins that our bodies need for proper health and wellness. Some of these vitamins are water-soluble, meaning they dissolve when exposed to water, whereas others are not. Regardless, once consumed, these vitamins are used by the body for various purposes. Vitamin B, for example, is designed to convert food into energy, allowing us to muster through the workday, whereas vitamin C is used for proper cellular growth and repair.
Statistics show that more than half of the U.S. adult population takes some form of daily supplement. Of course, one of the most popular supplements is a multivitamin, which contains a variety of vitamins as well as other beneficial nutrients. Fruits and vegetables are an excellent source of vitamins, but many people don't consume enough of them in their diet. With a multivitamin, however, these individuals can meet their vitamin recommendations by taking a single pill each day. Multivitamins and other vitamin supplements have become increasingly popular in recent years as more and more people take a proactive approach towards improving their health.

The Global Vitamin D Ingredients Market Research 2018 report by The Market Reports is a second professional study of the vitamin market, though it focuses specifically on vitamin D. Millions of people suffer from vitamin D deficiency, resulting in the thin, weak bones that are prone to fracture. While staying outdoors underneath the midday sun for roughly 20 minutes usually provides enough vitamin D for the average adult, not everyone has the ability to stay outdoors. There are other ways to meet the recommended daily intake of vitamin D, however, including the use of supplements.
Some of the key vitamin D vendors profiled in this report include BASF SE, Dishman Netherlands B.V., Royal DSM N.V., Barr Pharmaceuticals, Lycored Limited, Zhejiang Garden Bio-chemical High-tech Company Limited, Fermenta Biotech Ltd, Schiff Nutrition International, Inc.
