From prolonging life span to prolonging health span
People want to live a long life, but often ignore how to live a healthy life. As people increasingly realize that prolonging health is as important as prolonging life itself, by 2022, we will focus not only on how long we can live, but also on how long we can live healthily.

In 2022, consumers will continue to provide the nutrition needed for the best function of the immune system every day to obtain immune resilience.

Daily strategies include adequate intake of immune enhancing nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin D and quercetin every day, but also require us to improve our diet by reducing the intake of sugar and industrial seed oil such as corn, soybean and cottonseed oil (Note: the proportion of omega6 and omega-3 fatty acids in industrial seed oil is unbalanced, which will lead to the imbalance of human pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory mediators, and the high content of trans fatty acids is easy to lead to oxidative stress) And stop sedentary to improve the overall health and extend the health period of the human body. Studies show that people with poor liver health, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and metabolic syndrome are less resistant to COVID-19 when dealing with COVID-19. Every day, efforts should be made to strengthen our immune system and return to basic nutrition and sports activities to help them. Reduce chronic diseases and improve overall health.

Traditional agriculture and heavy industry are the main causes of air pollution. Our choice of food will have an impact on improving air quality.

On the contrary, our metabolic rate will maintain from our 20s to our 50s, and will not begin to decline significantly until after the age of 60.

In 2022, we will see increased demand for products and lifestyle that help maintain metabolism by maintaining muscle mass and supporting mitochondrial health. Supplements such as branched chain amino acids (BCAA), acetyl L-carnitine, coenzyme Q10 and lipoic acid (ALA) will be more and more popular.
