New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/15/2017 -- Increasing consumer awareness about wellbeing and preventive healthcare are major factors driving the consumption of vitamin supplement products. With age, it becomes difficult for the body to optimally absorb the required nutrients from food. Furthermore, loss of appetite is also a common problem among the geriatric population. Elderly people tend to suffer from vitamin D deficiency as they have low exposure to sunlight. Therefore, there is growing a dependence on vitamin D supplements among the geriatric population, especially in Asia. According to the Government of Alberta, people over 60 years of age accounted for 44% of the supplement consumption in Japan in 2011. Moreover, increasing incidence of various lifestyle diseases such as night blindness, osteomalacia, digestive disorders, and other vitamin deficiency diseases, along with hectic lifestyles of people are expected to propel the growth of the global vitamin supplements market.
