Even though this article was written for the Canadian market, I still felt it was relevant for healthy living anywhere. Take in the tips below and tell what you think 🙂
VANCOUVER, April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Holistic nutritionist Joy McCarthy, in partnership with the Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA), today released her top five healthy living trends and tips for spring 2012. Her findings are based on observations in her own practice and interviews with natural health and organic leaders at the recent CHFA West event, the largest natural health industry gathering of its kind in Western Canada.
“This year’s CHFA event was enlightening, with a stimulating exchange of ideas and a wide variety of new products that are responding to the wants and needs of Canadian consumers,” said Joy McCarthy, registered holistic nutritionist. “Many people are now including natural health and organic products as part of their overall solution to a range of health issues. Based on what I saw at the show, Canadians’ appetite for them is skyrocketing.”
With a recent IPSOS Reid survey showing that 73 per cent of Canadians are regular consumers of natural health products, these products are fast becoming part of their regular health and wellness toolkit.
This spring’s top trends and Joy’s tips include:
1) Working from the inside out to attain natural beauty
Canadians are embracing the concept of beauty from the inside out. They are turning to the health food and the grocery stores to create gorgeous skin, healthy hair and strong nails.
Joy’s tips: Try natural products such as Omega-3’s to improve skin elasticity and improve hair health; probiotics to improve your digestion which promotes healthy skin and vitamin C to help produce collagen.
