Diet plays a significant role in maintaining a healthy life. The nutrients from the diet are necessary to carry out the normal functioning of the body. Due to the change in lifestyle, the eating habits of people around the world have changed in the past few years. Many people tend to eat more convenient fast foods rather than homemade food. This change in the eating habits of the people affects their nutrient intake. The nutrients essential for the body, particularly the micronutrients are rarely found in fast foods. Lack of these nutrients in the diet causes micronutrient deficiency in the body. Micronutrient deficiency can develop several symptoms including goiter, anemia, night blindness, scurvy, rickets, and dermatitis. To maintain the optimum level of nutrients in the body, people should consume nutritious foods containing all the essential nutrients. Many people consume dietary supplements to compensate for the lack of nutrients in the food. The dietary supplements come in different forms including pills, capsules, powder, and liquid.

Growing Awareness Regarding Preventive Healthcare Augment the Growth of the Global Dietary Supplements Market
According to the report, the global dietary supplements market was valued at USD 163.1 billion in 2019 and it is expected to grow with a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period of 2020-2026. The growth of the market is driven by the rise in awareness regarding preventive healthcare. In the past few years, the concept of preventive healthcare has come into popularity. As the name suggests, preventive healthcare focuses on the preventive measures for certain health issues rather than curing them when they occur. Moreover, the major media channels play an important role in spreading awareness about preventive healthcare. These media channels share information regarding preventive healthcare and products such as nutritious foods and dietary supplements. This, in turn, increases the demand for dietary supplements.

The survey conducted found most of the people across the world consume dietary supplement at least once in a day. While a considerable part of the population consumes dietary supplements twice a day. The higher consumption of the dietary supplement is largely due to the growing awareness regarding the products available in the market and their effect on health. The dietary supplements help in maintaining fitness along with keeping the number of diseases at bay. Moreover, the availability of a number of OTC dietary supplements in the market makes them more accessible to consumers. Thus, people can easily buy dietary supplements from the nearest pharmacy or retail stores. This, in turn, leads to more consumption of dietary supplements.
