In 2010, HealthFocus reported the following  top Health issues for Americans:

Mental sharpness (65%),

Heart health (62%),

Cancer (61%),

Vision problems (57%),

Arthritis (53%),

Appearance/skin (51%), and

Joint heath (51%). 

 

Many of these conditions are related to oxidative stress and free radicals.  It is no wonder that demand for anti-oxidants continues to be on the rise

 

Today’s consumers— want to understand how antioxidants help their well-being, especially specific health conditions.  The Boomers,  huge in number, with  more disposable income than any previous generation and committed to staying active--means they are likely to consider antioxidants for fighting off premature aging, inflammatory conditions like arthritis and brain-related disorders.
