Demand for organic everything is on the rise and that includes supplements. Now is the time to consider selling organic supplements even if you’ve brushed off going organic in the past.
Why Sell Organic Supplements
According to Supermarket News, “Organic sales in the U.S. totaled a new record of $49.4 billion in 2017, up 6.4% from the previous year and reflecting new sales of nearly $3.5 billion.”
Consumers are becoming more and more particular about what they consume and how it was made. With so much in the news and popular media about the “evils” of the industrial agriculture industry it’s no surprise that people are buying more and more organic.
While organic supplements aren’t the only way to succeed in the industry there’s definitely a massive opportunity to maximize profits. ZME Science reports, “In March, a Consumer Reports analysis found that, on average, organic food is 47% more expensive than regular food.”
While people are willing to pay a lot more for organic, organic on average only costs 5-7% more to produce. This means that you can increase your markup and profit margins massively with a far smaller cost increase.

Ashwagandha has been used in ayurvedic medicine for centuries for a variety of different health concerns and issues. It’s also known as Indian ginseng or winter cherry. The name ashwagandha literally translates to horse smell supposedly because of its horse-like odor.

But not just any cinnamon will do. There are a few different types of cinnamon cassia cinnamon is the most common cinnamon and it’s the kind that’s most likely in your spice cabinet right now. It’s sometimes called Chinese cinnamon because it’s native to China.
While cassia cinnamon is the most common it’s Ceylon cinnamon that is sought after and used for its health benefits. Ceylon cinnamon is also called Sri Lanka cinnamon because it comes from Sri Lanka.
While both types of cinnamon contain healthy essential oils, cassia cinnamon is high in toxins that can be harmful if too much is taken. That’s why Ceylon cinnamon is the preferred cinnamon for supplements.
