The supplement industry has deep roots, starting with Native American, Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic traditions that tapped healing plants, herbs and minerals. However, with the introduction of a modern medical system came a focus on treating disease, rather than on holistic approaches to health and well-being.

Today, the supplement industry is a sophisticated, omnichannel business backed by research and increasingly supported by the mainstream medical community.
