Vitamins play a crucial role in the overall growth and development of the human body. These complex chemical substances boost immunity, facilitate digestion and help keep the body’s metabolism on track. Though a balanced diet is the best source of vitamins, due to changes in lifestyle and eating habits, vitamin deficiency has become quite common. Both children and adults are often instructed to take vitamin supplements for various reasons, which is in turn contributing to the growth of the global vitamin ingredients market. According to analysts at Technavio, the global vitamin ingredients market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 5% by 2020.
