Beat-the-Heat Nutraceutical Products for 2009

As nutraceutical manufacturers prepare for Spring and Summer products, we’ve put together a list of beat-the-heat products you may want to consider for your special summer product line.

Hydration Drinks to Keep Cool!

Acai Drinks
Acai products are surfing on a high crest this summer and this is one wave you may want to ride. Acai berries are not only known for their high nutritive value, but can also help shed off a couple of pounds due to their thermogenic properties. Acai products appeal to all ages and demographics. The most popular and convenient forms to manufacture Acai are individual powdered packets, ready-to-drink juices, smoothies, etc. Combination with pomegranates, cherries, strawberries and other superfruits can enhance the saleable value of an acai drink.

Energy Drinks
These are most popular with the younger generation, but statistics also show that those over the age of 35 constitute 35% of energy drink consumers. Energy drinks show a marked rise in demand during the summer months. Most energy drinks are carbonated or milk-based. Energy drink innovations include energy drink powders, and tablets.

Nootropic Drinks, or Smart Drinks
These are a blend of various fruit juices, vitamins, and herbal supplements. They provide fluid intake during summer months and help to enhance concentration, boost energy levels, and resist stress. They may include amino acid supplements. These are not only nutritious products, but they’re delicious too!

Green Tea Drinks
Green Tea on its own, or mixed with other superfruits, can create an endless variety of products. Green tea is another powerful antioxidant that has numerous health benefits. It also exhibits thermogenic properties to help lose weight faster. Green Tea is also known to be soothing on the nerves. These make great drinks for relaxing on cool summer evenings.

Products to Shield and Protect Skin from the Sun!

UV Protection Skin Creams
Skin products are always in high demand during summer months. Manufacturers should contain Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide as these are the only two ingredients which protect the skin against UV rays without being absorbed into the skin.

Green Tea
Green Tea has anti-bacterial properties. Topical applications of Green Tea can help to soothe sun-damaged skin. The antioxidants work to reduce wrinkles and thus make it a good anti-aging product. Green Tea can be manufactured as a topical application in cream form.

Aloe Vera
This is another helpful herb that is very popular in the summer months. Cuts and scrapes are quite common in the summer. Aloe Vera has antiseptic properties and can help heal wounds faster especially skin burns, as well as burns that result from sun damaged skin. Aloe Vera products are gentle, effective and can be manufactured as handy gels for topical application, as softgels for oral ingestion for promoting immune and digestive health, or as a concentrated juice.

Nutrition Protection against Summer Heat!

Vitamins and Minerals
Summer activities can require vitamin supplements especially antioxidants such as Vitamins A, C and E. Zinc and selenium are believed to have skin protective properties. Effervescent vitamins can make a refreshing part of a summer breakfast.

Natural Supplements
These are always in season. A tasty blend of superfruits, probiotics, and other superfoods can form a superfood supplement. Such products can be consumed in a variety of ways including smoothies. Mixed with yogurt these products make a refreshing drink, which is highly nutritious and contains hardly any calories for diet conscious people. Green and Red superfood supplements are highly nutritious and a great way to compensate for nutrition when diets are more inclined towards junk food or fast foods.

Digestive-Aid Products
Probiotics help maintain intestinal flora and enhance digestion. They also ease upset stomachs and diarrhea which are common during the summer months due to too much activity in the sun and eating fast food!

Those who suffer from travel sickness, may prefer herbals, such as ginger to ease nausea.

Nutritional Aid for Fighting Spring Allergies!

Hay Fevers are common in the spring and summer months. Bee pollen containing querticin is a powerful antioxidant that can help ease the symptoms of hay fever and strengthen the immune system while providing one of the world’s best source of densely packed nutrition. When manufacturing bee pollen, choose one that has been harvested from a clean, pure environment, chemical and pesticide free. For instance, bee pollen from New Zealand is known for its high quality. In addition, bee pollen which has undergone the potentiation process is more easily digestible and can be 80 times more nutritiously beneficial.

An experienced contract manufacturer can help you produce innovative products which can hit the right market this summer. Look for a manufacturer who is flexible with production runs and can provide you with high quality end products.
