|The use of natural products and plant based dietary supplements has potential to keep the increasing prevalence of metabolic syndrome in check. According to a recent survey, over 42 percent of adults in the United States reported using one or more forms of alternative medicines or dietary supplements for obesity and the metabolic syndrome continue to plague the world at an alarming rate. In recent years, it has been reported that obesity and its metabolic complications will cause both substantial socio-economic and physical burden on society. Furthermore if untreated, diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia and others more severe conditions will increase. Because weight perturbations are so prevalent and harmful, many different propharmacological approaches have been developed to treat the overweight state and obesity. The use of pharmacological drugs has become a popular means to overcome excess weight. While these drugs generally are effective, severe adverse toxicities may limit their overall usefulness. A nutritional based intervention is being hailed as an inexpensive alternative to the aid for weight loss and weight management. This presentation will cover: Market and product trends, marketing and branding hype, consumer’s attitude and how it is pulling new product developments, recognize the key growth areas in the functional food and beverage markets and how to capitalize most effectively in weight management, evidence-based dietary supplements and nutraceuticals, regulatory threats and moving forward to obesity research.|
