As people become increasingly aware of the importance of consuming natural products to improve the health and well-being of themselves, their families and pets, their expectations of product quality have risen. In recent years products that are plant-based, non-GMO, clean-label, safe and traceable, have seen a steady rise in popularity, and this is set to continue through 2023.
Stress and Cognitive Health
As the stress of a modern lifestyle increases, two wellness trends attracting people of all generations are products that support stress reduction (adaptogens) and cognitive health – two closely related health concerns that can positively affect the health of the whole body.
Affordability and Value for Money
A key factor set to influence consumer choices in 2023 is the current economic climate, leading people to seek more affordable products that offer value for money. At NP Nutra® we supply premium quality ingredients at the lowest possible price, and our whole food, juice and botanical extract powders provide a range of beneficial nutrients, allowing you to create innovative, healthy and affordable consumer products.
Great Tasting Products
Consumers want products that are not just healthy but also taste great. Incorporating flavorful, natural ingredients into innovative foods, beverages, wellness powders and pet foods means that people and pets can enjoy eating healthy rather than seeing it as a chore, making it more likely they will keep coming back for more.1
Don’t forget Pets!
These trends are not limited to just products for people. Even pets experience stress and need a healthy functioning brain for optimal wellness. With pet ownership rising steadily and more people considering their pets part of the family, pet owners are increasingly spending more money on pet care products and seeking natural, plant-based pet foods, food toppers, treats and supplements.
Adaptogens have been used since ancient times for their stress protective effects and to promote rejuvenation and sustained energy. They are also rich in antioxidants that benefit cognitive health.
With the stress of modern lifestyles driving growth, the global adaptogens market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.8%, from US$10.3 billion in 2020, to US$23.4 billion by 2030.2
