Yourwellness Magazine Follows Up WHO Ageing Population Pharmaceutical Report (amazon) (shopzilla)

London, UK (PRWEB UK) 20 August 2013

On the 16th of July 2013, the World Health Organisation (WHO) released a new report calling for pharmaceutical researchers to adjust their research and development efforts in order to account for a shifting age demographic. For the first time, EU countries have more people over 65 years of age than under 15 years of age. Nina Sautenkova, Health Technologies and Pharmaceuticals, WHO/Europe, commented, Despite an over three-fold rise in spending on pharmaceutical research and development in Europe since 1990, there is an increasing mismatch between peoples real needs and pharmaceutical innovation. We must ensure that industry develops safe, effective, affordable and appropriate medicines to meet future health needs. (

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine explored whether pharmaceuticals can help to delay the ageing process. According to Yourwellness Magazine, The cosmetic industry has recently become inundated by beauty supplements in pill form, which are packed with nourishing ingredients said to work from the inside out, but are they the better alternative to your anti-ageing moisturiser? The ageing process is internal just as much as it is external if not more so can delaying the hidden signs of ageing help to improve the signs that are more visible? (

Yourwellness Magazine outlined the views of three experts:

1. Dr Daniel Sister, a French cosmetic doctor and anti-ageing specialist who has developed Youth, a food supplement. He noted that as face creams dont penetrate deep enough to generate a real physiological change, and older individuals are less able to extract key skin-healthy nutrients from food, supplements can help with their high concentrations of key ingredients.

2. Lamiss El Hannach, in-house nutritionist at London pharmacy John Bell & Croyden. She added that supplements are helpful because most foods eaten on a daily basis are too processed to be beneficial to skin.

3. Bridget Benelam, nutrition scientist at the British Nutrition Foundation. She argued that a balanced, healthy diet is all anyone needs as a supplement can never recreate such a complex mixture of nutrients and natural compounds, and some vitamins and minerals can be toxic in excess.

    Surprising Findings in Anti-Oxidant Supplementation and Younger Population (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Miami, Florida (PRWEB) April 25, 2012

    A newly published study in the Hypertension investigating the effects of anti-oxidants in blood flow and blood vessel function, which consisted of 87 healthy volunteers, 42 between the ages of 24-26 and 45 between 70-72, suggests different health outcomes in young vs. old.

    The study incorporated a very powerful cocktail of potent anti-oxidants, those being Alpha Lipoic acid (600mg), vitamin C (1000mg) and vitamin E(600 IU).

    While there is no RDA (Recommended Dietary Allowance) on Alpha Lipoic Acid but 600mg supplementation is normally associated with those having pathological conditions such as Diabetes.

    The RDA on vitamin C, for more than 19 years of age, stands at 90mg for men and 75mg for women, all smokers needing additional 35mg, and for Vitamin E is 22 IU from natural sources or 33 IU from synthetic sources, for more than 14 years of age.

    The anti-oxidant cocktail incorporated, in this study, not only by far was one of the most powerful mixes, especially given the fact that Alpha Lipoic Acid additionally re-energizes the inactive vitamin C and vitamin E, but also the amount of the intake was relative to the upper limits of these anti-oxidants.

    Aside from increasing the available vitamins C and E, Alpha Lipoic Acid also increases the synthesis and intracellular concentration of glutathione, the most potent internal anti-oxidant, which declines by age. Amongst its diverse properties, glutathione is used by the human body to neutralized free radicals and regulate an important biological process called Redox.

    According to The Department of Internal Medicine of University of Miami, the cellular redox is regulated by three systems that counteract with free radicals, two of which are regulated by glutathione. Drugs. 2011 Jul 30;71(11):1385-96

    While increasing glutathione, through such a potent intake of Alpha Lipoic Acid might be beneficial in very short term for the elder population, as it relates to the elimination of free radicals, improving the endothelial (blood vessel) function, but too much of glutathione is not beneficial for neither the old or the young.

    Glutathione is found in sufficient amount in the younger population. However, its levels decline by age and while boosting glutathione is highly important to the health of older generation for eliminating oxidative stress, increasing glutathione in excessive amount results in an adverse health condition, referred to as Reductive Stress.

    According to the University of Utah School of Medicine, excessive levels of one antioxidant reduced glutathione may actually produce adverse health results, which might explain why in the younger population the potent anti-oxidant cocktail did not produce favorable outcome.

    In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp agrees with this study that potent anti-oxidants, especially R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, improve endothelial function in the elders but adds that the result of this important study should not be mistaken, whereas consumption of anti-oxidants produce adverse effects in the younger population. The younger population, more than 25 years of age, could also benefit from anti-oxidants. However, the amount of the intake has to be reasonable and relevant to the age of the consumer, taking into account that too much of any good thing might harm the body.

    Nutri-Med Logic Corp is the producer of the Natural, Balanced, Deodorized, Concentrated & Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3. Omega-3 is the most effective anti-inflammatory nutrient.

      Aging Population and Promotion of Preventive Healthcare Practices Drive the Vitamins Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (amazon) (shopzilla)

      San Jose, California (PRWEB) June 04, 2013

      Follow us on LinkedIn – Vitamins has emerged as one of the most dynamic segments of the health and wellness industry both in developed as well as developing economies. World market for vitamins, including both human healthcare as well as animal nutrition, is poised for healthy growth in the long run, driven primarily by rising health consciousness among consumers, particularly the aging population, and the growing meat consumption in both industrialized and developing countries.

      Growth in the vitamins market witnessed signs of slowdown during the 2007-2009 recession period. Fall in employment rates, reduction in disposable incomes and household wealth, and plummeting per capita spend, resulted in the decline in consumption levels during the period. The market regained poise in 2010 and started witnessing growth on par with the pre-crisis period. Medium to long-term outlook for the market also remains encouraging based on population growth, increase in consumption of vitamin supplements particularly in developing countries, GDP growth, discretionary spends and growing emphasis among consumers for leading longer, healthier and active lives.

      Animal nutrition represents the largest end-use sector for vitamins produced globally. Increasing population and growing affluence are transforming eating habits of people around the world. Consumption of protein rich food, especially meat, is increasing, creating a rush to speed up livestock growth. A concomitant demand is therefore being created for vitamins as additives used in the production of animal feed.

      Growth for vitamins in the human healthcare and personal care market is largely driven by urban consumers. Stressful lives, pollution and increasing awareness about the benefits of vitamins in maintaining good health are contributing to market growth. Magnesium, B-complex vitamins, vitamin E and multivitamin are some of the most widely demanded vitamins/minerals all over the world. With life-expectancy increasing in the face of continuous and rapid developments in medical technology, elderly population is growing, especially in developed countries. In their pursuit for maintaining active lifestyles and preventing age-related diseases, aging baby boomers are gradually transforming into one of the most attractive consumer segments for vitamin product manufacturers. While the older population is opting for vitamin supplements, vitamin fortified foods and cosmetics are engaging the gen-X consumers. An important trend in the human healthcare market has been the clear shift from single vitamins towards multivitamins. Consumers perceive multivitamins as the healthier, economical and more convenient option as a result of which multivitamins are the largest and the fastest growing segment in the overall vitamins market. However, vitamin supplements are expected to face stiff competition from herbal supplements and functional foods in the coming years.

      As stated by the new market research report on Vitamins, Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market worldwide trailing a CAGR of 6.1% over the analysis period. Europe and the US constitute the second and third largest regional vitamin markets respectively. In the US, demand is largely driven by shrinking coverage for healthcare. The Asian market is primarily driven by the towering presence of two of the most populated and rapidly developing countries of China and India along with the established Australian market. The burgeoning middle class population in India and China is fueling healthy demand for all vitamin types from human health as well as animal nutrition sectors. China represents the largest producer and consumer of vitamins worldwide.

      Segment-wise, the vitamins market is dominated by Vitamin B Complex. Increasing preference for B vitamin fortified foods is providing new opportunities for growth. B vitamins are also being increasingly used in personal care products strengthening the nutrients cosmetic application. Vitamin D usage in functional foods is expected to open up new avenues for growth worldwide. Few countries have made milk fortification with vitamin D mandatory in order to avert vitamin deficiency-linked diseases. Vitamin E is a key ingredient in lotions, sunscreens and anti-aging creams and is experiencing increased growth as a health supplement.

      Major players covered in the report include Adisseo France S.A.S, Archer Daniels Midland Co., BASF SE, CSPC Pharmaceutical Group Limited, DSM Nutritional Products Ltd., Lonza Group Ltd., North China Pharmaceutical Corporation, Pharmavite LLC, Zhejiang Hangzhou Xinfu Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd., Zhejiang Medicine Company Ltd., and Zhejiang NHU Co. Ltd., among others.

        Bel Marra Health Reports on a New Study: Elderly Population is Living Longer, But Getting Sicker Than Previous Years (amazon) (shopzilla)

        Toronto, ON (PRWEB) March 01, 2013

        Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is reporting on a new research that shows the elderly population is living longer than before, but quality of life appears to be reduced.

        As Bel Marra Health reports in its article ( while senior citizens are living longer than ever they also have a whole slew of other concerns studies say, and that is that because longevity aside, elderly folks are also a whole lot sicker than before.

        The numbers are an increase over previous years, and were attributed to the rise of three particular conditions, diabetes, hypertension and cancer. People could be living longer because of medical advancements surrounding these cases, or living so long that there is higher numbers of the conditions being seen. So professionals are saying there could be multiple factors at play.

        It appears that the women are really winning the longevity war these days because in most cases they have had a longer life expectancy. Americans have traditionally had a much shorter life expectancy that other countries, but for several decades the gap has been getting a bit wider. And as time goes on it is anticipated that it could become even bigger. But if people that are living longer, are just getting sicker, are the efforts directed in the wrong way.

        The study took aim at how poorly the United States did in a number of different areas of longevity. As a matter of fact, the US does poorly in a whopping 9 areas. When it comes to infant mortality the numbers are concerning. Low birth weight babies continue to be a concern, and the USA also has the highest infant mortality rates.

        As the Bel Marra Health article reads, another area that does poorly in the USA is when it comes to areas outside of chronic health conditions. Deaths from injuries and homicides are at an all time high. Alcohol and drug abuse, sexually transmitted diseases and high pregnancy rates are also high. So are incidences of HIV and drunk driving to boot.

        If there was 17 developed countries that were being looked at for the study, the United States fell in the upper percentile for almost all categories. The death rate from heart disease is actually the second highest of all the 17 countries looked at. Older people also say that they consider themselves to be less mobile than in many of the other countries.
