Functional Beverages Market Size 2020 – Increased Demand Due To Health Priorities During Pandemic

Functional Beverages Market Size 2020 – Increased Demand Due To Health Priorities During Pandemic

  • August 7, 2020

London, Aug. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The rapid spread of the coronavirus currently seems to only be controlled by social distancing and maintaining hygiene, but the disease has also caused an elevated consciousness among consumers, who are increasingly look for healthy alternatives in food and beverages to boost immunity and decrease chances of contracting the virus. The demand for functional beverages has thus increased since the pandemic began as they offer a high nutritional and health and wellness value. Substituting high sugar drinks and carbonated drinks with functional beverages has become a ‘health trend’ in 2020 and is viewed as a precautionary step towards curbing the effects of the virus. Consumer insights have also shown that the coronavirus has not ended the functional drinks trend, but rather more consumers have health at the top of their minds during the pandemic and are craving food and beverage products that make beneficial-to-health claims.

These health claims are supported by the various trends within the functional drinks market, such as natural botanicals that are extracted from plant parts such as roots, flowers, fruits, leaves, or seeds and offer various functional benefits ranging from enhancing memory to boosting energy, burning fat, and providing immune system support, relaxation drinks rather than energy drinks, for purposes such as switching off from busy lifestyles, a good night’s sleep, elevated happiness quotients, stress relief, and CBD-infused drinks as cannabidiol offers many health claims such as reduced anxiety, reduced inflammation, enhanced mood, and pain management. All of these are sought after in general lifestyles, but benefits such as immunity boosting, stress relief, reducing anxiety are especially needed during the pandemic.

The Business Research Company’s report titled Functional Beverages Market Global Report 2020-30: COVID-19 Growth And Change covers major functional beverages companies, functional beverages market share by company, functional beverages manufacturers, functional beverages infrastructure market size, and functional beverages market forecasts. The report also covers the global functional beverages market and its segments. The functional drinks market is segmented by type into energy drinks, sports drinks, nutraceutical drinks, dairy-based beverages, juices, enhanced water, others, by function into health & wellness, weight management, and by distribution channel into brick & mortar, online.

However, even with the advantages of functional drinks, lockdowns and social distancing norms imposed by various countries and economic slowdown across countries owing to the COVID-19 outbreak and the measures to contain it have resulted in a decline in the functional drinks market growth rate. The functional beverages market is expected to decrease from $128.66 billion in 2019 to $125.39 billion in 2020 at a rate of -2.5%.

Going forward, the increase in the demand for immunity boosting foods and beverages due to the outbreak of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is likely to benefit the functional beverages market. COVID 19 is an infectious disease with flu-like symptoms including fever, cough, and difficulty in breathing. The virus was first identified in 2019 in Wuhan, Hubei province of the People’s Republic of China and spread globally including Western Europe, North America and Asia. Consumers have become more conscious about improving their immunity due to this pandemic and it is expected to have an unprecedented demand for established immunity-boosting products because of the growing importance on preventive healthcare, particularly with personal hygiene in the minds of consumers. For instance, according to the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India, the sales of immunity-boosting foods have increased up by an estimated 20-40% since the initiation of lockdown due to the pandemic in the country. Thus, the rising concern in the minds of consumers regarding COVID-19 is expected to the increase the need for more preventive healthcare products to boost their immunity, thereby driving the growth of the functional beverages market. The functional beverages market size is expected to recover post the COVID-19 crisis and grow at a rate of 8.07% from 2021 and reach $158.28 billion in 2023.

FMCG Gurus surveyed 23,000 consumers across 18 countries in May 2020. 63% of respondents said that their health consciousness increased significantly due to the coronavirus outbreak, a marginal increase from the survey results conducted a month earlier (59%). 80% respondents said that they planned to eat and more healthily because of the virus. When asked about the steps taken towards these goals, the consumers said that they would reduce sugar intake and manage their weight. Being quarantined at home led to reduced activity levels and increased food indulgence, which made the consumers want to start monitoring their weights. These factors will drive the market for functional beverages as more consumers are becoming health conscious due to COVID-19.

Novavax reports promising early trial results of COVID-19 vaccine

Novavax reports promising early trial results of COVID-19 vaccine – World

  • August 5, 2020

US biotech company Novavax on Tuesday announced its experimental COVID-19 vaccine elicited a robust immune response, producing more antibodies than are present in recovered patients, and with generally tolerable side-effects in its early-stage trial.

The company was given $1.6 billion by the US government last month to develop and fund the drug under Operation Warp Speed — but in terms of timeline it is behind other firms including Moderna and AstraZeneca which have entered the final stages of their trials.

It reported in a press release that the phase one stage of its placebo-controlled trial involved 131 healthy adults aged 18-59 and two dose groups of five and 25 micrograms.

Side effects included soreness at the site of injection, headache, fatigue and muscle pain. These were classified as mild to moderate, and none were severe.

After the first dose, all subjects who got the vaccine developed antibodies that block SARS-CoV-2’s “spike protein,” which it uses to latch on to human cells.

Most also developed “neutralizing antibodies” which are more potent and prevent viruses from infecting cells.

After a second dose given 28 days later, all participants had the more powerful neutralizing antibodies.

Novavax reported that the lower dose performed comparably with the higher dose, which is important when it comes to mass production and because lower doses generally elicit fewer side effects.

Antibodies are infection-fighting proteins made by the immune system. 

Another part of the immune response comes in the form of T cells, types of white blood cells that have the capability to kill infected cells and which are increasingly thought to play an important role against COVID-19.

Novavax said it looked for these cells in a subset of participants and found they were present.

The trial was supported by funding from the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and was conducted at two sites in  Australia.

Novavax has not yet shared the detailed findings but said it was submitting the research for publication in a peer-reviewed journal and to medical preprint site medrxiv.org. 

The final stage Phase 3 trial of its vaccine, called NVX-CoV2373, is set to take place this fall.

The Maryland-based company grows synthesized pieces of the SARS-CoV-2’s “spike protein,” which triggers an immune response, inside insect cells in order to help scale up production.

It also uses an “adjuvant,” a compound that boosts the production of neutralizing antibodies.

The company says the drug, which is a liquid formulation, can be stored at two degrees celsius to eight degrees celsius, refrigerator temperature.

In the spring, the company said it had proven the efficacy of a seasonal flu vaccine it had developed using the same technology.

UCSF doctor concerned about IV vitamin therapy, which has become popular during COVID-19 pandemic

UCSF doctor concerned about IV vitamin therapy, which has become popular during COVID-19 pandemic

  • August 4, 2020
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — Treatments that purport to boost your immune system, like vitamin IV drips, are gaining in popularity during the pandemic and in some cases have become big business.

“I like to keep my immune system as high as possible, especially during coronavirus,” said San Francisco resident, Justin Passek, who got hooked up to an IV at Drip Doctors in Cow Hollow.

“What I’m doing today is a hydration drip. It has zinc and vitamin C,” he explained.

“I came in a got a few quick shots from her and the next day I just woke up feeling so refreshed and energized,” said Kathryn Grier, who goes to Drip Doctors regularly for infusions. “That’s been making me feel a lot safer and healthier.”

“This is where we mix IV infusion bags,” said Albert Vasquez, while giving a video tour of his Danville business, IV Performance Solutions.

“I’ve been in business about 3.5 years and last month was my highest gross revenue month by quite a bit, probably by about 15%.”

Vasquez is also a physician assistant and firefighter paramedic. He creates custom vitamin and nutrient infusions for his clients. ABC7 news reporter, Kate Larsen, spoke to him via Zoom on Monday night.

Kate Larsen: “Do you think that your IV treatments can help people prevent, treat, or in general fight off COVID?”
Albert Vasquez: “Yeah. If you look at the nature of immunity, our bodies are riddled with opportunistic viruses and bacteria and infections every single day. And it’s the fact that you maintain a robust immune system that allows you to keep from getting sick.”

But not everyone is a believer in IV vitamin therapy.

COVID-19 RISK CALCULATOR: Quiz yourself on the safest, most dangerous things you can do as CA reopens

“These products like immune boosters are part of a pantheon of products that claim to protect you from COVID-19, but really don’t have any scientific basis,” said Dr. Peter Chin-Hong, a professor of medicine and infectious disease specialist at UCSF.

Dr. Chin-Hong says the elective IV treatments can be downright dangerous and says he worries about the risk-benefit calculus.

“I am worried that anytime you stick an IV in someone, you have a risk for complications. You can get a line infection, you can get air going in to an artery, and causing an air embolism in the lungs. And then it may cause you to have difficulty breathing and some people would got to the ICU and actually not do well,” he said.

He says people would be better off spending their money on masks and hand sanitizer.

“The only benefit I can imagine is that it gives you fluid, maybe if you can’t drink Gatorade or water.”

Curtis Park Pharmacy To Open Despite Other Coronavirus Business Closures – CBS Sacramento

Curtis Park Pharmacy To Open Despite Other Coronavirus Business Closures – Good Day Sacramento

  • August 1, 2020

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Amid several businesses closing their doors due to the coronavirus pandemic, one Sacramento pharmacy is soon opening theirs.

“The reason this is called Ten Acres Pharmacy is because in 1918, where this is located, there were 10-acre tracts,” said owner Sonya Frausto.

Frausto is putting the finishing touches on her new business in Curtis Park. She had hoped to open in May, but COVID-19 slowed construction. So she has been stocking up on products.

“On local products, small businesses, women-owned businesses, minority-owned businesses, so a lot of the products you see that are kind of unique that you don’t see,” she said.

Frausto decided to make the move after being laid off from a larger pharmacy. She wanted her business to focus on functional medicine, which she said helps patients restore their health by identifying the root causes of what ails them.

She has teamed up with a local doctor who specializes in that.

“We talked about partnerships and ways we can work together to bring information to our local community about how they can work and live healthier through supplements, through taking care of themselves, knowledge and education,” Frausto said.

Frausto said it’s been a challenge opening her business during the pandemic because it’s hard to get some products, but she sees it as an opportunity.

“For people to walk in and ask the questions they want to ask, be able to get the products they want – masks, hand sanitizers, basic things like ibuprofen or hopefully a vitamin to help them feel better or boost their immune system – those are all important things,” she said.

She said she knows her location on Freeport Boulevard is close to several other mom and pop type businesses will serve the neighborhood, especially now.

“This is a wonderful addition to our neighborhood,” said Eileen Sargent, who lives in the area. “You can walk to the pharmacy.”

Frausto said she sees her personalized service and supplies as just what the doctor ordered to fill a need in the community.

Stay healthy and support your immune system with healthy Korean Food products inspired by Korean traditional healing methods

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been renewed interest in healthy eating and physical activities that boost immunity and reduce the chance of infection. More people are shifting to cooking meals at home, concentrating on an increased intake of healthy ingredients that have healing properties.

To aid this growing demand, KimC Market has stocked a wide range of healthy Korean food options, freshly delivered from Korea. An online food and grocery portal, KimC Market carries specialized Immune Support products inspired by traditional Korean healing methods. These items have no additives and are completely natural from the source.

Korean recipes and ingredients are recognized for their medicinal qualities that can curb the spread of chronic diseases and infections. KimC Market anticipates a surge in the popularity of Korean food because of these attributes.

Korean cuisine uses a diverse range of ingredients that can strengthen immunity. In Korean culture, the purpose of food consumption is primarily to maintain health. Many traditional Korean dishes consist of elements that balance and harmonize the energies of the body. Medication is only considered if food is not sufficient to heal a sick individual. Fermented foods that improve metabolism are considered especially healthful.

100% natural Fermented Bellflower and Pear is a product partly inspired by traditional healing methods. It works as an excellent remedy for the flu, especially in children who may refuse to take medicines. This therapeutic concentrate is available at KimC Market. It comes in jar packaging and also in individual stick packs. Only highest grade bellflowers, native to Yeongju, Gyeongbuk Province, are used to make this concoction of fermented sweet pears and lactic-acid bellflowers.

Another popular product from KimC Market’s healthy Korean food offerings is Ginger Grain Syrup. Known for its antibacterial qualities, ginger has a variety of medicinal benefits. This sweetener combines the taste and benefits of ginger with jocheong, a syrup made with rice, barley, and corn. Enjoyed in a latte or tea, it is best used as a guiltless replacement for sugar.

Loquats are another lesser-known immunity strengthening ingredient, historically used to treat stomach cancer. The fruits of the loquat tree are enriched with potassium and other vitamins and grow only in the southern regions of Korea. Bottles of Loquat Matured in Honey are available at KimC Market as well. The honey used in this product is bee-free and comes from unrefined raw cane sugar. It can be used in recipes for both cool and warm drinks.

KimC Market specializes in high-quality Korean products that are healthy and natural. With warehouses on both American coasts, the online grocery store serves customers across the country with fresh ingredients and one-day delivery. Orders exceeding $45 ship for free.

Building immunity with natural and ayurvedic herbs

The year of building health and immunity – lifestyle

  • July 31, 2020

A strong immune system could be the perfect solution to tackle COVID-19. Building the body’s defence through food and herbal concoctions became a top priority for most people during the ongoing pandemic.

From giloy juice and tulsi drops to turmeric milk, Indians have been flocking stores to buy honey, herbal teas, Amla based products, touted to improve immunity to fight diseases. Corona year has probably made each one of us more conscious than ever to take care of our health. And the onus has been majorly on the factors responsible to boost immunity.

Hamid Ahmed, CEO, Hamdard Laboratories- Food Division

Hamid Ahmed, CEO, Hamdard Laboratories- Food Division, says, “It’s very important to keep your immunity high during such times. Taking steam to keep viruses away is essential. Giloy, neem and amla juice work beautifully with warm water and should be taken regularly. Also, homemade kadhas and multivitamins help in building immunity. Consumption of vitamin C-rich fruits and vegetables should be encouraged to boost the immune system.”

Dimple Jangda, founder, Prana Ayurveda says, “The COVID-19 virus attacks the throat and the lungs. In Ayurveda, Kaphadosha, made of earth and water, is

dominant in the nose, throat, and chest region. When kapha is imbalanced, it leads to accumulation of thick fluids like mucus, a breeding ground for allergies, viruses, bronchial diseases.”

Hamid Ahmad suggests a set exercise regimen to fight off any viruses present in the air. He adds, “A simple walk or a jog would increase lung capacity which is essential to fight Covid-19.”

Dimple adds,”Kapha is heavy, dense, moist, sweet, sour, and salty in quality, and to balance this we must incorporate bitter, astringent, and pungent tastes in our diet. Cold-pressed juices allow your body to heal and
you will have more energy and less cravings thus building the balance that the body needs.”

The better your body’s immune system is, the better are your chances of successfully fighting off an infection like the novel coronavirus.

Pavleen Gujral

Pavleen Gujral, actor and nutritionist, says, “You can easily give your immunity a boost with ready-to-use immunity-booster products such as tulsi drops, amla juice, giloy-neem, and ashwagandha. They would help in the long-run. Also, one of my personal favourites to boost immunity is turmeric latte.” This beverage is a nutritional powerhouse. It is a cup full of antioxidant-rich spices that also happen to have anti-inflammatory properties. Have one glass of this at night before sleeping and you can considerably reduce the odds of getting sick.

Even Dimple echoes that tulsi, giloy, amla, neem, ashwagandha, turmeric, ginger and other herbs are antioxidants, have anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-allergic, antiviral properties that help in strengthening bronchial health, reducing Kapha imbalance, and boosting immunity against most viruses. She adds, “This is the era of building immunity, and boosting it is the best prevention against all kinds of disorders and viruses.”

Trump says he can't assure school safety amid pandemic: 'Can you assure anybody of anything?'

Trump says he can’t assure school safety amid pandemic: ‘Can you assure anybody of anything?’

  • July 31, 2020

President TrumpDonald John TrumpGovernors’ approval ratings drop as COVID-19 cases mount Gohmert says he will take hydroxychloroquine as COVID-19 treatment Virginia governor, senators request CDC aid with coronavirus outbreak at immigrant detention facility MORE, who has pressed for schools to open this fall despite the coronavirus pandemic, said Thursday that he couldn’t offer assurances that holding in-person classes would be safe.

“Can you assure anybody of anything?” Trump said in response to a question about how he could assure people that schools can safely be reopened. 

At the same time, Trump falsely claimed that young people are “almost immune” to the virus. 

“I do say again, young people are almost immune to this disease. The younger the better,” he said during a White House briefing with reporters. “They’re stronger they have a stronger immune system.”

Children can get COVID-19, though the evidence so far suggests they are less likely to experience severe illness or death compared to adults. 

About 340 children have been diagnosed with a serious inflammatory condition that is thought to be caused by COVID-19, but most eventually recover. 

Most children who get COVID-19 experience mild symptoms, like fever and cough, or no symptoms at all. 

Still, evidence is mixed about whether children are less likely to get infected when exposed to the virus. There is also not enough evidence yet to determine what role children play in spreading the virus to each other and to adults, a question that looms large over school openings as teachers, staff and others would be exposed to children for several hours a day. Critics of the plan also point out that children who become infected in school can expose family members to the virus.

It is thought that older children, between the ages of 10 to 19, can spread the virus to adults as well as other adults can, Anthony FauciAnthony Fauci Gohmert says he will take hydroxychloroquine as COVID-19 treatment Pence met with doctors from viral video containing false coronavirus claims Fauci says viral video retweeted by Trump features ‘a bunch of people spouting something that isn’t true’ MORE, the nation’s top infectious disease doctor, said Wednesday on MSNBC. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics strongly recommend schools reopen in some capacity in the fall, citing the harmful effects of missing in-person instruction.

Reopening schools also holds the added benefit of helping parents get back to work, providing Trump a much needed boost to the economy. 

However, some public health experts note it will be more difficult to safely reopen schools in areas of the country with large COVID-19 outbreaks. 

“In the hot zones, you have to take that on a case by case basis, and make a decision based on the welfare of the kids, as well as the feasibility of being able to open up,” Fauci said Wednesday on MSNBC.
