London, United Kingdom, 2007/07/27 - Report Buyer, the online destination for business intelligence for major industry sectors, has now added a new report on the increasing demand for antioxidant enhanced foods and drinks, dietary supplements, and toilets and cosmetics.
“Antioxidants: Nature Meets Science for Anti-Aging Solutions” shows that antioxidant supplements increased from $2 billion in 1997 to $3 billion in 2005, a rate of five percent.
The report shows that antioxidants, the organic substances that inhibit chemical reactions with free radicals to protect healthy cells, has been linked to a lower incidence in at least half of the 10 leading causes of death, including heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease.
The reason for an increased demand of antioxidant supplements is the growing understanding of the relationship between diet/lifestyle and disease/quality of life which has shifted the emphasis on age-related conditions away from treatment and toward prevention.
The report concludes that older people have to focus on health maintenance and disease preventions in the worry of employers not covering their health insurance needs in retirement or that their health insurance needs will exceed their coverage, something which subsequently increases the demand for antioxidants.
“Antioxidants: Nature Meets Science for Anti-Aging Solutions” looks at foods and drinks, supplements and cosmetics and toiletries marketed as containing antioxidants. It looks at the market size and trends for antioxidants in each of the product categories in addition to presenting a balanced discussion of the media buzz hyping or dismissing the role of antioxidants in the three product categories.
“Antioxidants: Nature Meets Science for Anti-Aging Solutions” is available from Report Buyer. For more information,please visit the website.
