Which Supplements Should I Sell in the Winter?

Winter is coming and we are here with the top dietary supplements and vitamins to manufacture with us, your premier supplement manufacturing consultant.

Immune support

Cold weather and immune support supplements go hand in hand. Why? In the winter, many people are stricken with the common cold and the flu. The immune system depends on many vitamins and minerals that keep people healthy and happy. When exposure to sunlight is decreased during the cold months, chances of getting sick rise and your customers could be at risk. But with the help of your immune support products, they can fill the gaps without missing a beat. Consider the below ingredients when crafting your next formula and give us a call to get the process started.

Sleep Support

Your customers have yet to be offered a high-quality supplement that supports their soon-to-be efforts of gaining better sleep. A restful night can make all the difference in getting out of bed in the morning, especially on the cold and dark ones. More importantly, quality sleep is vital to maintaining a healthy immune system, affecting how your customers feel on the daily. Valerian root, passionflower, and hops have been proven to be beneficial ingredients to manufacture when it comes to supporting a good night’s rest.


Your vitamin business has the power to change the expected symptoms of SAD (seasonal affective disorder) for the people who find themselves feeling down during the winter, people who are typically between the ages of 18 and 30. Working at a cellular level, B-vitamins can help improve immune system function and stave off the winter blues by promoting mood. For example, Vitamin B6 is very important for nerve function and a deficiency in this nutrient is commonly associated with neuropsychiatric disorders. Signs of such a deficiency include changes in mood, involving anxiety, irritability, and depression. While some prescribed antidepressants work by increasing levels of serotonin in the brain, B6 does this naturally. How? Research has indicated that Vitamin B6 has a serious impact on the central production of both serotonin and GABA neurotransmitters in the brain. Both are critical hormones that regulate common symptoms of SAD, depression, anxiety, and fatigue. With a B-complex product, your customers could benefit greatly from mood-benefitting thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pyridoxine, biotin, folate, and cobalamin.

Vitamin D

The “sunshine vitamin,” Vitamin D, is ingested through foods such as red meat, oily fish (salmon, sardines, herring, mackerel), egg yolks, and fortified foods like breakfast cereals. Here you have some target consumers to whom you could market your vitamin D products. Around 79 million people in the world are vegan. 80-90% of Americans don’t meet the recommendation for seafood consumption, and many people simply do not like fish. If people aren’t eating the major sources of vitamin D, and not getting outside to soak up the sun, then imagine how high in demand your Vitamin D capsules, tablets, powders, softgels, or gummies would be. Think picky-eating and vegan adults, but also think kids, as many children do not prefer fishy flavors. The gears should be turning for innovative supplements!


Zinc is a nutrient the body needs for optimal immune and metabolism function. Although a well-balanced diet that includes foods like whole grains, nuts, baked beans, and milk products comprise zinc, some people need more than food to ensure sufficient zinc intake. Why is it so important to consume zinc during the months of frigid temperatures? According to registered dietician LeeAnn Weintraub, “zinc has been shown in studies to be effective in preventing and reducing cold symptoms. It helps prevent viruses from adhering to cell walls in the nasal passage and is involved in antibody production, an important immune system process.” Your product manufactured in our GMP-registered facility could be the supplement that helps customers maintain their much-needed zinc levels and lessening how hard they get hit by the common cold.


Probiotics are basically live microorganisms, or “good bacteria,” that help keep our guts in balance. They have undoubtedly become one of the most popular natural health supplements for gastrointestinal wellness and gut health promotion. While bacterial populations can be affected by diet, antibiotics, and stress, probiotics can help restore them. They are a great option for consumers looking to improve their immune and digestive health, especially since Season’s Greetings can welcome unwarranted cold and flu symptoms.


Most popularly sold today in capsule and gummy form, echinacea has been used traditionally for over 400 years for a variety of infections and wounds. Different kinds of echinacea have their own advantages. For example, Echinacea pallida and Echinacea purpurea are known to relieve cold symptoms, whereas Echinacea angustifolia helps relive a sore throat. An important note to make: It is required that you include on your product label a ‘Suggested Use’ section, so consumers know the right dosage to take, but it is also very important that you advise customers to seek professional advice before consuming any dietary supplement because some ingredients, no matter how natural, are not intended to be taken long-term, and echinacea is one of them.
