Botanic Choice, a top retailer of natural vitamins and herbs, has just released its list of top 10 single-nutrient supplements for 2010:
1. Aloe Vera – digestion
2. Chromium – weight and blood sugar support
3. Apple Cider Vinegar – total health
4. Coral Calcium – bones
5. Glucosamine Chondroitin – joints
6. Cinnamon – blood sugar support
7. Omega 3-6-9 – essential fatty acid for heart, skin, digestion
8. Tart Cherry – joint health
9. Flaxseed – total health and wellness
10. Butcher’s Broom – circulation
While some nutrients have topped the chart for years, there’s one surprise—the increased interest in essential fatty acids. Tim Cleland, President of Botanic Choice, credits the media with helping to get the message out about the benefits of essential fatty acids saying, “There’s been a lot of talk on TV and radio about how omegas are beneficial for a wide range of functions including heart, immune, digestion, skin and vision. It appears that message is sinking in with the public and they’re responding.”
Vitamin and Health Trends for 2011
Looking ahead Tim predicts Vitamin D will continue to headline as word spreads about its importance to bone, breast and immune health. In addition, he believes thyroid issues will become top-of-mind as consumers become more educated about how much this small gland affects and how often it is missed or misdiagnosed. Tim says, “We’re already seeing significant interest in our proprietary thyroid product, Thyroid Complex.” He adds that the formula was their top seller in 2010 and plans for that trend to continue. Other 2011 health trends include supplements to support vision (aging Baby Boomers), weight, and digestion.
