Many consumers want to live a healthier lifestyle, and one of the most common reasons for doing so is weight management. Weight management is a big sales draw for multiple sectors, with revenues totaling $61 billion in 2013 (1). This number encompasses several categories, from services to programs to drugs, and dietary supplements are no exception.
