The human body requires vitamins and minerals to function efficiently. Food is the best source of minerals and vitamins. Each of these elements allows the body to stay competitive with the immune system and protect it from different diseases. The human body needs trace and macro minerals, and vitamins, which are very essential minerals. Calcium, magnesium, chloride, sodium, and potassium are the ingredients that are known as the minerals in essential food. The lack of nutrient-rich food is rising the need for these minerals and vitamins. Therefore, this rising demand drives the market for minerals and vitamins.

The segment of vitamins and minerals includes over-the-counter organic and inorganic food supplements such as vitamins, minerals, multivitamin preparations, and tonics. Vitamins and minerals include capsular preparations, tablets, dragees, liquids, granulates, powders, ampoules, and oral syrups.
