For example, manufacturers can develop gummy vitamin products tailored for children's growth and development, women's prenatal health, or seniors' bone and joint support.

Functional ingredients such as probiotics, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants offer additional health benefits beyond basic vitamin and mineral supplementation.
