Supplement Manufacturing Soars Through the Pandemic

Industry by Rosemary Tambini on January 24, 2022

Supplement Manufacturing Soars Through the Pandemic

A new year is upon us and what are you to do with a lingering pandemic and bountiful business opportunities? Seize the day! Make your side hustle a main hustle by utilizing the all-in-one-services offered by Makers Nutrition. With innovative capabilities that make it hard for competitors to keep up, we are here to help turn your business dreams into reality.

Preventive Health Measures

A lot has changed since the start of the pandemic. Consumers who were often purchasing sports nutrition products exclusively are now venturing into new territory—stocking up on zinc, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and other immune system supporting supplements. They want to get ahead of whatever may come as much as possible. While dietary supplements are not intended to treat, cure, or prevent any disease, science shows that vitamins and minerals can indeed impact one’s wellbeing, and concerned consumers are buying into it. But will your brand be the one that shows consumers the way to better health? Take a look at some recent supplement sale findings, learn some more about what Makers Nutrition has to offer, and then decide what happens next.

Sky High Supplement Sales

The vitamin and dietary supplement industry experienced its highest growth in 20 years with a 12% increase in 2020. Owner of Triad Fitness Kevin White told Jeff Elkins of The Norman Transcript that his company has “seen an increase [in demand] for multivitamins and anything for immune health like zinc and calcium.” Owner of Thunder Discount Drug, a pharmacy in Norman, Oklahoma Rory Forinash said he saw an immediate boost in supplement and vitamin related inquiries at the start of COVID-19. And while the frequency of those questions may have somewhat leveled out, Forinash still has conversations with customers about them on a regular basis. He thinks the biggest supplement consumers are looking for Vitamin D, with melatonin leading right behind.

Manufacturing Immune Health Supplements

Vitamin D and COVID-19

If you are up to date on our blog, then you know Vitamin D shows some promising effects for individuals before, during, and after a COVID-19 diagnosis. It can also help modulate mood, strengthen muscles and bones, regulate inflammation, and promote optimal heart health. These are all great reasons to manufacture Vitamin D capsules, tablets, softgels and gummies through a full-service provider such as Makers Nutrition.


With or without coronavirus, people need sleep, and melatonin can help with that. Be it a custom formula you submit, or a formula you choose from us to private label, melatonin can serve your chances of success well. The NCBI has found that the “use of melatonin, a naturally occurring tryptophan derivative synthesized in the pineal gland and immune cells, is a potential treatment option to reduce the severity of COVID-19 symptoms due to its known anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, and protective antioxidant mechanisms.” While you must not claim that your private label melatonin gummies can cure the illness, you may list its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. You can also display on your expertly designed package that melatonin has been shown to help lengthen total sleep time while getting people to sleep sooner. So, by offering melatonin supplements manufactured in a GMP-compliant facility, you could help thousands of people gain some much-needed ZZZ’s and enhance their body’s defense system against lurking pathogens.

Custom Sports Nutrition Manufacturing

Contract manufacturing can be tricky when dealing with many places at once. You have the manufacturer, the co-packer, the graphic designer, printer, and fulfillment center to vet and make sure the job will be done correctly and on time. Things get lost in the shuffle, one component isn’t carrying its weight, holding up the others, and time is of the essence. If you want the job done right the first time, then we suggest you partner with a team that handles everything under one roof. Makers Nutrition creates gym supplements for many of the fitness industry’s largest brand names. The number of preworkout, postworkout, and amino acid blends of which we have facilitated the manufacturing is at an all-time high. Now, more than ever, people are looking to get back what they lost, be it muscle mass or self-confidence, and also gain what they may have never had: energy and endurance. Now, more than ever, is the time to launch powerful workout supplements that will jumpstart your sports nutrition product line.

White Label Formulas at Your Private Label Service

Especially if you are just starting out in the nutraceutical industry with a new line of products, then we suggest you start small and build from a strong foundation. With the solid pillars of an FDA-registered vitamin manufacturing company, your brand will be in better shape than your competitors right off the bat. You can choose any one of our formulas and you are guaranteed high-quality material. If you are launching with the hope of succeeding in sales during a time of raised health consciousness with immune supplements, then choose from our diverse range of products available at low MOQs that will save you time and money, and add value to your business.

Indirect Effects of COVID-19 on Teachers

So Stressed Out

If you have a teacher in your life, then you can sympathize with the stress they endure both inside and out of the COVID context. These individuals are arguably in the most need of stress relief support, and when bath bombs don’t cut it, supplementation can help. Your private label brand can promote eased minds and relaxed bodies with ingredients like ashwagandha, rhodiola rosea, and glycine while your teacher customers practice mindful meditation.


Working remotely sometimes lends itself to overeating, to which many teachers have fallen victim. Here are some suggestions that can assist them in their efforts to getting back on track:

  • Garcinia cambogia supplements can make customers feel full longer and shows promises with blood fats and the production of new fatty acids. Garcinia cambogia can help lower high levels of fat in the blood and reduce oxidative stress in the body. Research also suggests the supplement can be most effective in reducing the accumulation of belly fat in people who are overweight.
  • Green coffee bean extract rose to fame on The Dr. Oz Show as its weight loss agency was touted by the program’s licensed professional. Green coffee bean extract originates from coffee beans that have yet to be roasted, comprising a compound called chlorogenic acid. Roasting coffee lessens the chlorogenic acid content, which makes drinking coffee less effective for weight loss than taking supplements. That is why unroasted coffee bean extract is believed to help lower blood pressure, and essentially help people shed fat.
  • Glucomannan, a water-soluble fiber, is a possible supplement that your customers may find quite effective in their weight loss strategy. Often mixed into drinks in powder form, it is low in calories, takes up space in the stomach, thereby promoting satiety. Glucomannan is arguably one of the most beneficial soluble fibers for weight loss and weight management.

Why Not

Given the year this week has already been, I think it’s time to ask, “why not?” Why not make 2022 your year of perseverance and success? As I sit here in quarantine chewing Vitamin C tablets, and chewing zinc gummies, I urge you to push forth and make smart business decisions that your future self will thank you for.
