Making the right choice for your nutraceutical products

The nutraceutical industry continues to shift towards a ‘pharma-lite’ environment where proven health claims are essential, quality is key, and formulation superiority drives brand preference.  

Indeed, nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals now largely represent two sides of the same coin. The former uses food and nutrition to help maintain health and prevent disease, while the latter provides the therapeutics that facilitate treatment or cure. 

To minimize regulatory risk and earn the loyalty of consumers, nutraceutical companies are now adopting science-based practices and formulation development strategies that have proven successful within the pharmaceutical industry. 

These market innovators typically understand five key things: 

  1. Optimizing the purity, quality, consistency, stability and supply security of their active health ingredients is critical to regulatory success
  2. Regulators and consumers increasingly demand that key health outcomes and other performance-related benefits are scientifically proven
  3. The bioavailability of many active ingredients is dependent upon their delayed or targeted release in specific areas of the gastrointestinal tract, such as the colon
  4. Long-term brand loyalty is often determined not by price, but formulation factors, as consumers seek products that provide comfort and lifestyle convenience
  5. It is faster and easier to get to market with the support of a partner that has the capabilities and regulatory know-how to guide each step to final product delivery
