Evaluating Immune Health Ingredients

Consumers know that good health starts with a strong immune system. They want food and beverage products that support their immune health, nutritionity and well-being.

Clinically proven to help strengthen the immune system.

When it comes to immune health ingredients, research shows 39% of global consumers will likely buy a product if its claims are based on research or scientific data. In Asia, this number is around 40%, with consumers rating research on ingredients and scientific data as key reasons for buying a health product.1

Quality research is a true indicator of safety and efficacy. Research builds credibility and will help gain trust among consumers while providing a valued product. But not all immune health ingredients are created equal. Some may not be as safe, effective or easy to formulate into products.
