If you attended Supply Side West in Las Vegas last week you will likely be aware that the biggest news on the block is CBD. The show was confused between a supplement industry that had little innovation that could support European claims and the ever-expanding cannabis industry that was clearly willing to pay for stands to fill the declining gap of supplement vendors willing to splash the cash.
It isn’t new news that Europe stunted its own growth with the EFSA approved claims list. The rest of the world embraces branded supplements and their benefits that are represented by various published studies. Meanwhile, EU brands are still making vitamin C claims to support their collagen products.
Enter sustained release technology
The benefits of vitamins, minerals and trace elements are well known to us all. We are also well aware of the questions surrounding bio-availability and if the supplements containing our favourite ingredients work as well as they should.
Considering effectivity, the new product development team at Supplement Factory have developed a range of pellet-based products that meet the needs of athletes and casual supplement users. The latest product is a 4 hour, sustained release multivitamin that contains the powerful and much respected Ashwagandha.
Containing a whopping 23 ingredients, this cutting-edge innovation is set to be a real hit for a range of brands that have chosen to work with us on the product. “Over time we have improved the product’s visual impact and now we are able to offer it brands across the globe that want genuine innovation that is social media friendly”, Says Lee Smith, Founder of Supplement Factory. “Producing a unique product is very hard these days when you see all of the supplements on the market, if you want good user-generated content for social, you have to produce things that look as good as possible and have a unique approach to what is already accepted as mainstream”.
