(PRWEB) August 29, 2003

Research and Markets have announced the addition of the “Health Foods Market Report Plus 2003” report to their offering.

The value of the health food market covered in this report amounted to £2.08bn in 2002. This represented an increase of just over 10% on the 2001 figure, compared with considerably higher growth rates during the previous 2 years. The four key sectors consist of organic foods; functional foods; vitamins, minerals and supplements (VMS); and alternative remedies.

The slowdown was most marked in the organic and functional foods sectors, both of which have previously experienced unusually high growth, and are displaying some signs of maturation. The VMS sector has been growing slowly, while sales of natural remedies have continued to increase at a steady rate.

The prospect of European legislation has affected, or will affect, most sectors of the health food market in various ways, and has already taken up considerable resources, as manufacturers and retailers fight to make sure their views are properly represented. Arguably, the most urgent issue concerns the Food Supplements Directive, which covers ingredients and dosage levels in vitamin and mineral preparations, and is due to come into force in July 2003. A report from the Food Standards Agency, published in 2003, indicating that high doses of some vitamins and minerals could be harmful will deal a further setback to the specialist health foods industry.

On the corporate front, much of the activity during 2002 has indicated that it is the larger specialist companies that are in the best position to capitalise on the health foods market as it is at present. A number of large mainstream companies have scaled back their operations in health food sectors, while at the other end of the range there have been several acquisitions of small specialist companies by larger ones.

The current uncertainty in the market for vitamins, supplements and natural remedies is likely to have a negative effect on future sales, at least in the short term. Sales of organic food have begun to slow down as the market matures, while the market for functional foods will continue to grow at a steady, but unexceptional, rate.

Online Natural Health Center Meets Pain Relief Needs of Millions of Arthritis Sufferers Left Reeling from Vioxx Recall

Online Natural Health Center Meets Pain Relief Needs of Millions of Arthritis Sufferers Left Reeling from Vioxx Recall










(PRWEB) October 5, 2004

Natural Health Center, an online natural health products resource and online store has announced its preparedness to assist arthritis sufferers who had been taking Vioxx for arthritis pain prior to the drug’s recall on September 30th.

In response to Merck’s recall, Natural Health Center (NHC) has put together a variety of arthritis pain relief packages for those who now find themselves without a safe means to relieve arthritis pain.

“What many people don’t realize is that popular prescription drugs only manage symptoms, they don’t actually address the underlying cause of the disease,” said Dr. Dan Nuzum, Naturopathic doctor at NHC.

“So what you get is simply pain management, without improvement of the condition itself. But with natural treatments like herbal supplements and homeopathic remedies, both the root cause of the disease is addressed as well as the pain and discomfort it causes – and its all done safely and naturally.

One of the main causes for arthritis is a parasite called Protozoa. Arthritis is also caused by a virus. Once the body is rid of the offending parasite or virus, the natural healing process can begin.

Millions of people suffering from arthritis worldwide are today scrambling for an alternative to Vioxx and other arthritis prescription medications. Natural Health Center provides an effective solution by offering a safe, proven method to treat the painful disease.

Natural Health Center (NHC) has arthritis relief packages available to those who are looking for a new, safe form of relief. We offer the highest quality herbal and natural products available. To learn more about how we can help relieve your arthritis pain, stop by:

Bonavitas Products Target Consumers That Are Self Educated About Natural Hormones Supplements And Nutrition As They Seek More Natural Solutions For Their Long Term Health

Bonavitas Products Target Consumers That Are Self Educated About Natural Hormones Supplements And Nutrition As They Seek More Natural Solutions For Their Long Term Health













Bonavitas Products


Provo, UT (PRWEB) August 19, 2011

Bonavitas, the good life fitness company, today announced it is finding new ways to solve old problems without taking risks with people’s long term health. 

For example, conventional recovery wisdom is that a recovery drink should come with a high dose of sugars, that raise blood sugar and spike insulin. Bonavitas uses a slow release sugar so that people can keep burning fat post exercise. Since one creates free radicals during exercise and the body starts to repair during rest, Bonavitas products provide antioxidants to the body right in that window and challenge conventional industry wisdom about what is expedient and create effective products that do not compromise on delivering good, healthy long term results.

“Bonavitas products are designed to provide a clear benefit now, without sacrificing what your body needs to keep working and age gracefully. None of our products contain artificial flavors, artificial colors or artificial sweeteners,” said Alexandra Paul, the scientist behind Bonavitas product line. 

“Guess what, they taste like citrus fruits, like cinnamon, like honey, like cayenne pepper – like real food. Remember those? Foods, vitamins, minerals – The things your body was built to digest. They don’t taste like ice cream or bubble gum. They don’t look like radiator fluid but they give you real fuel, nutrition and antioxidants to keep powering the real you,” she added.

Read our labels – no aspartame, no acesulfame potassium, no sucralose – because sugar molecules should not have chlorine molecules attached to them.

Bonavitas products will be distributed on-line and a combination of retail channels depending on the appropriate landscape for each particular product. For example, energy shots will be distributed FDM, convenience, natural/health foods and online, whereas the recovery drink and hydration powder mixes will be distributed in natural/health food and online only.

For more information, please visit our website at http://www.bonavitas.com.

ABOUT BONAVITAS

Headquartered in Provo, Utah, Bonavitas is a worldwide provider of functional food and supplement options designed to meet the needs of tired people interested in products that do not contain artificial colors, artificial sweeteners or artificial flavors. The company was designed to meet the needs of tired people. Tiredness in all of its various forms and expressions is the number one complaint made to primary care physicians. Bonavitas offers powdered drink mixes and ready to drink products that address the underlying causes of consumer tiredness. http://www.bonavitas.com
