A consistent percentage of U.S. adults label themselves as supplement users, with 66% classifying themselves as such, according to a survey conducted by Ipsos-Public Affairs for the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), Washington, D.C. In 2009, 65% identified themselves as supplement users compared with 64% in 2008, 68% in 2007 and 66% in 2006.
According to results from the 2010 CRN Consumer Survey on Dietary Supplements, regular supplement usage also remains steady. The online survey showed that nearly three-quarters of supplement users (74%) classify themselves as “regular” users, as opposed to occasional users (21%) or seasonal users (5%). In 2009, 73% of supplement users indicated they took supplements regularly; in 2008, 75%, and in 2007, 77% indicated similarly.
