Facts and Figures
"The age structure of the population is predicted to shift dramatically in the near future due to increasing life expectancy and declining birth rates….a dramatically increased prevalence in age-related conditions is thus predicted.""A number of controlled clinical trials of ginkgo biloba extract have shown a significant beneficial effect on memory function in patients, although a more recent trial has thrown doubt about its effectiveness, and further well-controlled studies are needed.""More recent product activity in eye health foods, driven by the GRAS approval for the use of lutein in foods and beverages in the US may prove an interesting indicator of how a market can progress, particularly when backed up by increasingly strong evidence of efficacy in terms of delaying the onset of age-related macular disease (AMD), and by strong support in product and promotional activity by an ingredient supplier.""Skin care and beauty products have already started to move out of cosmetics and topical application and into dietary supplements in countries such as the US, and it seems feasible that it could continue into fortified foods and drinks in the future. The term cosmaceutical has already been used in the US, and the market there remains dominated by products for topical application.""Also in the US, products for improving brain function are now starting to appear as one line in ranges of functional drinks offering specific benefits. This has been particularly apparent in recent years, with launches such as the FruitWell range from Ardmore Farms, the Glaceau Vitamin Water range from Energy Brands and the VitaRain range from Talking Rain, which all include products to aid concentration.""The rising popularity of dietary supplements for joint health in the US (the market is now worth about USD1bn a year) has started to spread into the soft drinks market, with the high-profile Autumn 2000 launch of Joint Juice by the start-up company of the same name.""The long-established Gerblé Barres Mémoire cereal bar product, part of the Memoire et Nutrition range, is almost certainly the best known French product to aid memory and concentration.""Activity in specific aspects of anti-ageing foods and drinks has been more limited still, reflecting the continued dominance of dietary supplementation in these areas, but there are now signs that this may be changing, with launches now occurring in a number of countries and different product sectors, marketed by a range of companies, including mainstream food and drinks manufacturers, dietary supplement and OTC pharmaceutical companies, health food companies and specialist functional foods and drinks suppliers."
