Gummy formulators: natural, vegan, sugar-free

Gummy multivitamins and other gummy supplements are a $1 billion industry currently. The industry is rapidly growing and will get to several billion quickly. To expand your current supplement brand, gummy products are the way to go. Having experienced gummy formulators are a must if you have never made gummies before. Big supplement brands like Nature Made and Olly are discontinuing some of their tablet and capsule products while adding gummy products. Your company should be too. Don’t get left behind. Join your competitors like Nature Made, Centrum, Olly, First Response, Nordic Naturals, Carlson, Jarrow Formulas, Rainbow Light.

Chewable gummy vitamins used to just be for little kids that couldn’t yet swallow capsules or pills. Now they are the choice for teens, adults and seniors too. A large segment of the population doesn’t like taking pills or at least would take their daily vitamins more regularly if they were in the form of yummy gummies. So jump into this market. Don’t get left behind. Join us in the gummy industry.

Vegan, low sugar gummy multivitamins

Our gummy formulators have experience with regular sugar and gelatin gummies plus all the other options. Options like natural, vegan, sugar-free, reduced sugar, fiber, sour and uncoated can help differentiate your brand. While it’s a tough challenge making a vegan gummy with no added sugar and with fiber, our gummy formulators have done it. Some of our lab-created samples are in the photos. It’s also important to consider the type of gummies you want to make.

Types of Gummy Vitamins

The industry has moved beyond just multivitamins. Now there are many types of gummy supplements on the market, like:

 

  • Multivitamins
  • Probiotics
  • Fruit and vegetable
  • Omega-3s
  • Sleep
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Energy
  • Joint health
  • Heart health
  • CoQ10

There’s a lot for gummy formulators to consider when developing a new product. There’s taste, of course, but texture is a big one too, especially if going vegan, sugar-free and sugar alcohol-free for example. Gummy formulators are also responsible for considering ingredient costs – of course it would be nice to be natural, sugar-free and vegan, but if that drives the cost per bottle up too high, then it’s up to the formulators to figure out what alternatives are feasible. No one wants to wax their gummies with “car wax” but it may be the better alternative to having lightly starched gummies if going corn-free and GMO-free. Similarly, allergen-free gummies can’t be made in starch molds, because they traditionally use corn starch.

Don’t delay in putting out your own line of gummy supplements just because there’s a lot to consider. Contact us now to get help from our gummy formulators. We’ve been working on gummy formulations for 10 years, and are happy to share our knowledge.

Create A Test Batch Of Your Supplement

You have a great idea for a dietary supplement that can help lots of people with a disease, health condition, their general health or even just to help them live better, look better or feel better. Now you approach supplement manufacturing companies to produce it and find out that the minimum order size is in the thousands. Manufacturers are for making your end product. But before you invest the money in manufacturing your product you need to create a test batch of your supplement to see if it works or how it tastes. That way you can optimize it or improve it.

You definitely need to create a test batch of your supplement. But how do you get one? Manufacturers are not in that business and contract labs aren’t either. That’s where we come in. Our biomedical and supplement scientists are available to make a test batch of your product for you. We can order the active and inactive ingredients or you can mail them to us. We have the equipment and expertise to make a small batch of capsules, powders, beverages, creams, shampoos and more. You give us the details – unless we formulated your supplement, in which case we already know the details intimately.

If you have a powder, beverage or food product, we can optimize for taste, color, smell, texture, etc. If you just want us to create a test batch of your supplement so you can try it out, we will make the small batch and mail it to you, regardless of where you are in the world.

Hold off going to manufacturing. Email us now and let us know the details of your new supplement so we can create the test batch of your supplement that you need in order to know that the product you’re putting out is the best it can be. We will even help you with projects that may be a little outside of our usual scope of work we described here. No matter what your product is, we can likely produce a small test batch of it and optimize it if necessary.

Finding Medical Writers Formulations Supplements

Supplement patent application writers

There is no doubt that the supplement market is booming, which is why you’ve decided to get a piece of the action and formulate your own supplement or supplement line. In such a saturated market though, you may be looking for a way to get an edge over the competition. To accomplish this, some companies have decided to have their products patented.

Of course, most people go to lawyers when they want a patent application prepared for their supplement; however, there are two very good reasons to go elsewhere to get your patent application prepared, which are:

  1. Having a lawyer write your patent application can be VERY expensive, easily running you a cool $10,000, or more
  2. Lawyers are not scientist and therefore have no clue as to the science behind your supplement, making it nearly impossible for them to write authoritatively on its ingredients.

So, if you aren’t going to get a lawyer to write the patent application for your supplement, who will?

That’s where we come in. We are The Med Writers and we are SUPPLEMENT EXPERTS! Our expert team includes:

  • a PhD biomedical scientist that has done extensive research on supplements in lab and academia
  • a naturopathic doctor (ND) that also holds a PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences working with herbal supplements
  • several other PhD and MS level science writers

We have custom formulated dozens of supplements for our clients, and as a team of professional writers, we have researched and written on supplements hundreds of times.

Without a doubt, we have the knowledge and expertise needed to write the patent application for your supplement; and the best thing is that we won’t rob you in the process. Our fees are reasonable and our turnaround times are excellent. So, contact us today to see how we can help you.

Formulating A New Supplement Or Nutraceutical Product? Avoid the Pitfalls!

If you have been keeping up on current trends, you recognize that many people today are trying to move away from prescription drugs to more natural ways to improve and maintain their health. A huge way that people are trying to accomplish this is through the use of nutraceuticals or dietary supplements. That’s why many discerning business people are developing new supplements and nutraceuticals. However, there are many factors that can contribute to whether or not you succeed in your efforts to formulate and market a new supplement.

Here are some of the pitfalls to avoid when trying to bring a new supplement and nutraceutical formulations to market:

1. Hiring unqualified dietary supplement or nutraceutical formulators – If you do not make sure that your  nutraceutical or supplement formulators have the right education, experience and expertise you can end up with a supplement or nutraceutical formulation that:

  • Is not safe – it causes uncomfortable or even dangerous side effects
  • Is not effective – your new supplement or nutraceutical formulation just doesn’t do what you claim it will do. This could be because ineffective ingredients were chosen, the ingredients that were chosen are ones that don’t work well together, the dosage amounts are not optimal or all of the above

2. Using the wrong nutraceutical or supplement manufacturer – Some of the things you need to watch out for when choosing a manufacturer for your new supplement formulation are:

  • High minimum orders – especially when you are just starting out, and have not yet had the opportunity to become profitable, the last thing you want is to have to place huge orders
  • Nutraceutical or supplement manufacturers that use inferior quality ingredients – this can minimize the effectiveness of your new supplement formulation

3. Not marketing your product well – The effect of poor marketing really cannot be underestimated. Even if you have put together a nutraceutical or supplement formulation that is fabulous and has potential to be the next big thing, it never will be if nobody knows about it and how great it is. Unless you get a highly trained medical copywriter you could end up with:

  • Sales copy that doesn’t sell – often because the person who wrote the copy did not understand the product well enough to write convincingly about it
  • Sales copy that is poorly optimized, ranks low in a Google search,  and therefore does not attract visitors to your site

Any one of the things mentioned above can adversely affect the potential success of your foray into the world of nutraceuticals and supplements, and therefore your bottom line. But there is a way to avoid all those pitfalls. Find someone who is knowledgeable and experienced, someone that can take you through all of these steps stress free. That’s what we do here at The Med Writers. We will formulate a nutraceutical product or supplement for you that is safe and effective, help you to find the best manufacturer for your needs and work with that manufacturer to make sure your nutraceutical or supplement formulation is made as designed, and write highly effective, keyword rich sales copy that will attract visitors to your site and convert those visitors into customers.

Then, your supplement formulator will search for additional ingredients that are not yet being used, ones that may be more effective or safe, thus giving your supplement formulation an edge over the competitors. Once your supplement formulator has completed their research and gathered all the relevant information, they will then make a recommendation on which ingredients to include in your supplement formulation, and at what dosages.
However, your relationship with your supplement formulator doesn’t end there. They will also recommend a good manufacturer and handle any questions that the manufacturer may have regarding your supplement formulation. Basically, your supplement formulator will be with you every step of the way as you bring to life your idea for a new supplement formulation.
