Abstract
The nutraceuticals market is vast and amorphous, encompassing many different types of products from a wide range of sources, with inconsistent levels of evidence available to support their use. This overview represents a mainly Western perspective of trends in the nutraceuticals market, with a brief comparison of the situation in China, as an illustration of how individual health supplements increase and decrease in popularity in regional terms. Recent changes in sales patterns, mainly taken from the US market, are summarised, and a selection of 5 newer products which have not been subject to extensive recent review are profiled: Astaxanthin, a carotenoid found in red algae and seafood, salmon, and trout, as an antioxidant; Cannabidiol, a non-euphoric marijuana component, as mood enhancer and for painful/inflammatory conditions; Ginseng modified extracts for new indications including dementia and space travel support; Monk fruit, a non-sugar high intensity sweetener, and Nigella seed, a popular food ingredient and Asian medicine which has experienced an extraordinary rise in sales recently.
