The report titled “Korea Nutraceuticals Market Outlook to 2021 – Rising Trust over Herbal Ingredients with Increasing use of Ginseng in Functional Foods to Foster Future Growth” by Ken Research suggested that nutraceuticals market in Korea would showcase a steady growth during the forecast period owing to the fast aging rate of population of Korea. It is estimated that the most of the Koreans spend their leisure time in watching TV, resting and playing games on the internet, resulting in rapid aging effects. The per capita expenditure towards healthcare has also been one of the major driving forces for growing nutraceuticals market in Korea.

In accordance with BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, 38.9% study participants reported the use of traditional Korean herbal medicines including the usage of herbal plants. The herbal and traditional ingredients are broadly classified into three sub-categories namely dietary supplements, medicated skin care and medicinal teas.

The most widely used herbal supplement is Korean ginseng, distributed across the whole country in the form of liquid, powders and capsules, and is considered to be an energizer, normalizer and stress reducer. The herb has a very positive effect in turning the whole body healthy. It has been used to lower cholesterol, treat diabetes, depression and sharpen the mind and memory. Kwangdong Pharmaceutical Co Ltd is one of the largest Korean traditional herbal medicine manufacturers.

Korean red ginseng is majorly used to ward off fatigue and stress, boost immune system, prevent ailments caused by viruses and bacteria and potentially improve erectile dysfunction in men with increased alertness.
