In our post-COVID-19 world, consumers are increasingly proactive in managing their well-being. In fact, 54% of consumers in the Asia-Pacific region have adopted a more proactive, long-term approach to their health over the last 2 years. Busy lifestyles and unprecedented global, political, and economic challenges negatively impact our collective well-being. With rising consumer stress and anxiety levels, the need for nutritional, scientifically substantiated solutions that support cognitive function and mental well-being is crystal clear.
