Amid Tough Competition, Sales Of Immune-Strengthening, Cardiovascular Ingredients Rising In Europe

September 27, 2011: 10:29 PM EST
U.K.-based market researcher Frost & Sullivan reports that manufacturers of functional ingredients for immune-boosting and cardiovascular supplements are profiting handsomely from Europe’s fear of epidemics such as the deadly swine flu. Sales of immune-boosting ingredients are steadily growing, thanks to a growing awareness of the relationship between a healthy immune system and prevention of flu-like diseases and respiratory ailments. Likewise, a Frost & Sullivan analyst said, there are “significant opportunities for ingredient manufacturers” because of the extent that cardiovascular disease, including high blood pressure, affects the European population. However, the analyst warned that manufacturers need to better educate consumers about the benefits of their ingredients in order to stand out from the competition.
