“Age is inevitable. Aging isn’t.” – collagen as the uprising nutritional ingredient for healthy aging

According to United Nations, 1 in every 6 people will be over age 60 by 2030, compared to 1 in every 8 in 2015. By 2050, the prediction rises to 1 in every 5 people. The seniors today plan on working longer and staying active as long as possible, and they want natural and effective products to boost their health. Collagen, ‘the building block of life’, emerges in healthy aging supplements. Collagen as a natural ingredient backed by science can support active lifestyles by promoting musculoskeletal health while meeting the unique needs of anti-aging.
Peptan is the world’s leading brand of collagen peptides. It is a natural, high-purity, bioactive ingredient with a protein content of over 97% (on a dry weight basis). Peptan offers the properties and benefits aging consumers are looking for in support of their efforts to live well. Peptan is the nutritional ingredient that meets the growing demand for preventive nutrition.

Lutein. The Next New Vitamin?

Out of the 600 or more carotenoids found in nature, only three are found in the macula of the eye – lutein, RR-zeaxanthin and RS (meso)-zeaxanthin. These play a critical role in visual health. But what exactly is their role and what are the consequences of low dietary intake? And, how do these factors impact different age groups? This webinar takes a fresh look at macular carotenoids to evaluate their importance across age groups—from early development to adulthood— and to evaluate market opportunities as consumers become increasingly aware of the importance of early and consistent intake of these nutrients for a lifetime of healthy vision.

Lynda M. Doyle, S.V.P. Innovation, OmniActive Health Technologies will discuss how the latest science on macular carotenoids is ushering the idea of their essentiality and new market opportunities, while Irene Kerbergen, Market Analysist, Innova Market Insights, will provide an overview on concerns on eye health per age segment, eye health claims for supplements as well as food and beverage, and product trends.

Role of nutrition in addressing the seven key pathways of aging.

Thanks to modern medicine, the overall human population is living longer. However, it can be debatable if we’re living healthier. With the rise of various health conditions such as obesity, CVD, and cognitive decline, humans are living longer, but not better. The goal of healthy aging is to increase the number of healthful years lived, while delaying the natural physiological process of decline that comes with age. Join Dr. Paul Clayton, a leading expert in pharmaco-nutrition, to learn about the seven key factors of aging and how nutrition can possibly slow down those factors, ultimately reversing them.

Botanical Compounds for Healthy Ageing from the Mediterranean Diet

Adherence to the Mediterranean Diet (MD), characterized by high intake of vegetables, fruit, whole grains, legumes, olive oil and fish, correlates with longevity and reduction of age-related diseases (ARDs). Clinical studies indicate that bioactive components of the MD, such as the polyphenols, have beneficial effects by decreasing inflammaging, the mild age-related chronic inflammation.
Inflammaging is a recognized hallmark in the ARDs susceptibility and a shared risk factor for many ARDs. Food sources of polyphenols and other phytochemicals could mediate the MD health-promotion through anti-inflammatory and other properties.
While recommended, strict adherence to the MD is often not sustainable in modern- fast paced societies. In this context, it makes sense to identify, research and provide the most promising MD phytochemicals in standardized and practical formats.
