Botanical Conundrum: Challenging Yet Profitable
Fighting deadly diseases like the plague was a major challenge in the early part of the 20th century, but the 21st century has brought us challenges in the form of chronic health conditions, many of which arise from our own dietary habits, lifestyle and our surroundings. Today humans have become “OVERFED & UNDERNOURISHEDâ, with this our health problems have only multiplied, and with the rising cost of health care, the role of supplements has become ever so important in maintaining our health. In this presentation, we will look at the role of botanicals and herbs for use in health supplements. The broad classifications under which botanicals are available as health supplements in the global market and the regulations governing their use particularly in the United States. We will also look into challenges, which the industry is facing, such as sustainability and quality management systems, and various techniques used in identification of botanicals. Join us for this presentation to look at the potentials of botanicals from a 21st century perspective.
