A quick reminder:
A dietary supplement is a nutritional foodstuff composed of one or more nutrients (vitamins, minerals, oligo-elements) or substances (plant extracts, fibers, amino acids…) which is mostly presented in the form of a capsule, tablet, powder, syrup or ampoule.
It aims to complement the diet in order to prevent or compensate for certain nutritional deficiencies, especially in the most at-risk populations (pregnant women, the elderly, athletes, etc.), to improve the quality of life and to limit daily discomforts (difficulty falling asleep, difficult digestion, chronic fatigue, stress, etc.). But also to prevent and fight against skin disorders such as acne, atopic dermatitis, eczema, redness, skin dryness or to boost the complexion, to give a healthy glow, to moisturize, etc. This is also called nutricosmetics.
The choice of a galenic form is a real strategic choice for your product that should not be neglected. Whether in terms of concentration of active ingredients, preservation, protection or preference of use, some forms are more suitable than others. Before choosing your galenic form, it is useful to ask yourself for which market your product is intended? For which use? With which composition?
