Use of artificial saliva assists in prevention of dysphagia
Several studies have proven the reduction of dysphagia symptoms in patients undergoing cancer treatment with the consumption of artificial saliva products. An ageing population in developed regions such as Europe, North America, and Japan present a lucrative opportunity for the dysphagia supplements market. Eurostar statistics for Jan 2015 state that patients above the age of 65 years were approx. 1/5th of the population, an increase of more than 2% from a decade earlier. This should be a blessing in disguise for the artificial saliva market.
