Manufacturing Supplements for the Cold and Flu Season

As a leading provider of high-quality nutritional vitamins and supplements, Makers Nutrition is dedicated to supporting the health and wellness of individuals throughout the year. One crucial aspect of our commitment is assisting clients in manufacturing supplements specifically tailored to the cold and flu season. Let’s get into the importance of manufacturing supplements for this season and why partnering with Makers Nutrition can be the key to success in meeting the increased demand for immune-boosting products.

The state of the market

The global cold and flu supplements market size was valued at $13.85 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% from 2020-2027. Changing lifestyles, as well as increased access to products through brick-and-mortar stores and ecommerce sites, has been influencing greater demand for cold and flu supplements across the world. Your private label supplement brand can thrive in this sector by offering high-quality immune supporting products manufactured and handled in a state-of-the-art GMP facility. 

Addressing Seasonal Health Challenges

The cold and flu season poses unique challenges to individuals seeking to maintain optimal health. As viruses and bacteria become more prevalent, it is vital to bolster the body’s immune system to minimize the risk of illness and promote a faster recovery. Manufacturing supplements designed for the cold and flu season enables you to offer supplement solutions that directly target these seasonal health concerns. 

Supporting Immune Health 

The immune system is the body’s natural defense against infections and illnesses. By formulating supplements with immune-boosting ingredients, you can help individuals strengthen their immune response, thereby reducing the risk and severity of cold and flu symptoms. Key ingredients such as the following have been scientifically shown to support immune function, especially during colder weather. 

  • Vitamin C: Vitamin C supports immune health by stimulating the production of white blood cells, which defend against pathogens. It also acts as an antioxidant, protecting immune cells from damage caused by free radicals. Additionally, Vitamin C enhances the function of other immune cells and aids in the production of antibodies, promoting a stronger immune response. 
  • Echinacea: Echinacea is believed to have immune-boosting properties. It may stimulate the activity of immune cells, such as white blood cells, helping to improve the body’s defense against infections. Echinacea is also thought to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, which can further support immune health. While more research is needed, it is commonly used as a natural remedy to potentially reduce the severity and duration of colds and respiratory tract infections.
  • Zinc: Zinc plays a vital role in immune health. It is involved in various immune functions, including the development and activation of immune cells. Zinc helps regulate the production and activity of white blood cells, enhancing their ability to fight off infections. It also acts as an antioxidant, reducing oxidative stress and inflammation. Adequate zinc levels support a robust immune response, making it an essential nutrient for maintaining a healthy immune system. 
  • Elderberry: Elderberry is often used for its potential immune-boosting properties. It contains compounds that may help inhibit viral replication and reduce the severity and duration of cold and flu symptoms. Elderberry is rich in antioxidants that can support immune health by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation. It may also enhance the production of cytokines, which are important for immune regulation. While more research is underway, elderberry is commonly used as a natural supplement to support immune function. 
  • Probiotics: Probiotics, often referred to as “good bacteria,” offer several benefits for immune health. They help maintain a balanced gut microbiota, which plays a crucial role in immune system function. Probiotics can enhance the production of antibodies and other immune cells, improving the body’s defense against pathogens. They also help modulate inflammation and strengthen the gut barrier, preventing harmful substances from entering the bloodstream. By promoting a healthy gut environment, probiotics support overall immune function and contribute to a robust immune response. 

Private Label Immune

If you are looking to get your product to market sooner than you would with a custom order, then private labeling our immune formulas may be the right fit. Since these products are already formulated, all you’d need to do is either send us your label, or have our talented artists create a brand new design for you. Then, we will seamlessly apply that design to your package which will clearly display all of your supplement facts, other ingredients, caution statements, claims, FDA disclaimer, and so on. 

You may be wondering what kinds of immune formulas we offer. We carry capsules, powders, and gummies that encompass what your target consumer groups are seeking. Here are just three of them:

  1. Immune Support Capsules: Good source of Vitamin C, contains echinacea, ginger, and garlic extract—all immune system supporting ingredients. 
  2. Elderberry Immunity Powder: Antioxidant-rich to support optimal immune function. Bonus: Non-GMO, gluten free, and all natural. 
  3. Elderberry Extract with Vitamin C and Zinc Gummies: Also non-GMO, this is an immune supporting formula rich in Vitamin C and Zinc.
