Vitamin Manufacturers in Utah? Find the Best Nation Wide 

According to the Council for Responsible Nutrition’s (CRN) 2021 consumer survey, eighty percent of Americans report using dietary supplements or nutraceuticals. Since the start of the ongoing pandemic, fifty percent of supplement users have changed their supplement regime with fifty-five percent of them adding additional supplements. 



Dietary supplements are more than vitamins. They include a whole host of nutraceuticals. Dudeja & Gupta, authors of the book, Food Safety in the 21st Century, define nutraceuticals as food or portion of a food with medical or health benefits. This includes omega-3 fatty acids from fish, iron from the earth, essential amino acids from milk, and more. 

Israel Haroldsen, president and co-founder of Origin Nutraceutical, discovered the impact of nutraceuticals at a young age. He gathered dandelion leaves, hops, mint, and lamb's quarters (to name a few) with his father and grandmother on the family’s Idaho farm. They made healthy green drinks from these botanicals loaded with fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, and omega fatty acids.

Today, nutraceuticals have become commonplace and broadly accepted. CRN reports 79% of Americans trust the supplement industry. Globally, supplement use continues to grow with numerous nutraceutical clinical studies supporting safety and effectiveness. 

In addition, pet owners are looking to safeguard their pet’s health. Grand View Research reports that organic and natural pet vitamins are becoming increasingly popular among pet owners. Especially millennials looking to keep their pets healthy and active. 


Vitamin and Supplement Manufacturing 

With the global dietary supplement market worth over $140 billion and expected to grow at an 8.6% compound annual growth rate over the next seven years, you might be thinking of starting a supplement brand or expanding your existing product line. 

Supplements are manufactured globally. But obviously, not all supplement brands are of the same quality or contain nutraceuticals in appropriate dosages to obtain the same results as shown in clinical trials. 

By law, nutraceutical companies in the United States must manufacture supplements per current good manufacturing practices (GMP) outlined by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  

However, the FDA does not inspect or test manufacturing operations or supplements before a supplement is marketed. The FDA focuses enforcement efforts on supplements and brands with filed consumer complaints. 

Cost is not a determining factor of supplement quality or effective dosage. Cheap supplements may be of comparable quality, dosage, and effectiveness as an expensive supplement, or they may not. An expensive supplement brand might have sunk more money into marketing, or they might be seeking a higher profit margin. 

How can you know if a supplement is of high quality? Or if a manufacturing or co-packing company complies with GMP regulations? 


Utah: The Hub of Supplement Manufacturing 

The best place to find a superior manufacturer is in a competitive market.

 Whether it is from Utah’s pioneer self-reliance roots, Dr. John Christopher’s ‘The School of Natural Healing’ located in Springville, Utah, or Utah’s Senator Orrin Hatch’s push to regulate dietary supplements in the 1994 Dietary Supplements Health and Education Act, the supplement industry in Utah is highly competitive. 

In fact, supplement manufacturers in Utah generate roughly a fifth of all USA-manufactured supplements. Origin Nutraceutical is one of the best Utah co-packers, and hence, one of the best in the country. At Origin Nutraceutical, we know customer service is the origin of success.
