What's New in Health & Wellness

Jan 10, 2017

The start of a new year is usually about changing bad habits, getting in shape and taking care of ourselves as we start fresh.

Consumer healthcare is a $502 billion market that will grow by almost 50 percent to $737 billion over the next five years. According to Accenture Consulting, this growth will be driven primarily by preventive health and wellness categories such as vitamins, nutrition, weight management and fortified foods and beverages.

Leading health and wellness site wellandgood.com gives us a list of their top predictions for wellness trends, and we are here to help you find out where to get the best deals on all your health needs.

Anti-inflammatory foods are very trendy right now. “We expect to see the market for inflammation-fighting foods to grow 7 percent by 2020 and expect 2017 to be a big year in terms of new product announcements and continued research and development,” says Deborah Barrington, a senior editor at Industry Dive. Foods like Tumeric and Ginger Tea from TraderJoes.com can have terrific anti-inflammatory health benefits.

Another trend that has us all excited is what Well + Good is calling workleisure—“activewear’s answer to machine-washable, office-appropriate business attire.” From the home to the gym to the office to the airport – these fashions are all the rage. From new lifestyle brands like Aday, and Kit and Ace to activewear stalwarts like Lululemon and Under Armour, retailers are keeping us comfortable and ready for anything the day brings.

Plant-based proteins are also popping up everywhere – like Pea and hemp proteins – available in increasingly delicious powders for smoothies, in nutrition bars, in potato chips—and also at trendy restaurants. Grab some Pea Protein Energy Shake powder from VitaminLife.com for your next workout recovery.

Clean beauty is taking hold and makeup counters are cleaning up their acts with plant-based, natural ingredients that are gentle to your skin and the environment. Natural and organic brands are sprouting up almost daily, and becoming a very viable industry that’s estimated to reach $16 billion by 2020. Look for leading brands like Aveda.com and Estee Lauder to offer great looks for a price, and industry leaders like Target.com to jump on the bandwagon with items like their Grapeseed Skin Care Oil or Shea Yogurt Hair Moisturizer.

And for those that like a High-Intensity Workout – don’t forget to recover. High-intensity workouts continue to be one of the hottest and fast growing, says ACSM’s Worldwide Survey of Fitness Trends. But over-training and injuries have caused may to rethink their recovery process.

According to Well + Good, “tough workouts aren’t fading away, but people are finally focusing on good habits, recovery classes, and self-care products to offset their physical toll.”

“I think we’re finally getting some balance back, which is why we’re seeing a resurgence in restorative techniques—the popularity of foam rolling is a great example,” says Lauren Roxburgh an alignment expert and author of Taller, Slimmer Younger: 21 Days to a Foam Roller Physique, whose clients include athletes like LeBron James and Gabby Reece.  Get it and your foam roller at Amazon.com.
