We talk to our Nutraceutical Market Manager for EMEA, Liz Connor Kenworthy to learn more about what social health is and how to maintain this as we age.
Social health is an aspect often ignored when considering our well-being as we age. What is it and what can we do?
It's common to consider our health in terms of both our physical and mental well-being. Although they are extremely important, we often underestimate the impact that social health may have on us. As we age, this is an even more important consideration, and with the pandemic creating boundaries for us, it will have indeed been worsened by the lack of contact we've seen over the past few years.
Our Nutraceutical Market Manager for EMEA, Liz Connor Kenworthy, joins us to discuss her thoughts on social health, why it's important and how IMCD is supporting this area of health.
What is social health?
Good social health has been shown to support better physical and mental health, with strong social connections linked to a longer life, reduced stress, and even improved cardiovascular health
Why is it even more important to maintain this as we age?
What can we do to improve/maintain our immunity?
How did the pandemic affect the senior community and their social health?
What does IMCD do to support this?
Liz: IMCD offers innovative solutions that are market-ready, formulated with active nutraceutical ingredients that are backed by science. We recently formulated an ‘Immune Gummy’, which is a plant-based formulation suitable for vegans. It consists of a synergistic blend of active nutraceutical ingredients specifically formulated to support, strengthen and aid recovery. Being a gummy format, it is convenient, easy to take, and palatable, avoiding the ‘pill fatigue’ phenomena we are seeing something which is particularly important for the older market who often have a cocktail of drugs they are already taking. We have seen the gummy category grow year-on-year in the supplement market, so it is nice to be able to offer this format.
