Food Antioxidants: Market Outlook
In the past decade, people have become more health conscious, and have started consuming antioxidants for nutrition requirements. Antioxidants that increase immunity, enhance memory, and help stay active, provided that the product is completely organic, are always high in demand. Antioxidants are usually in the powder or liquid form. Dietary antioxidants can also contain substances that are not confirmed as being essential to life, but instead are marketed as possessing a beneficial biological effect - plant pigments or polyphenols. Antioxidants help in the prevention of diseases and promote good health. Antioxidants are of two different types - industrial antioxidants and food antioxidants. Industrial antioxidants are derived from petroleum, but food antioxidants are derived from fresh fruits and vegetables.
Food antioxidants are beneficial to the health in different ways, such as for eye health, prostate health, heart health, and urinary tract health. Boosting the intake of food antioxidants in the diet will protect the human body against immune system issues, memory problems, and mood disorders. The growing demand for the food and beverages sector will enhance the growth of the food antioxidants market.
Food Antioxidants and its Various Properties
The human body naturally produces more free radicals. In order to counter the damaging effects caused by free radicals, the body produces antioxidants. But in most cases, the number of free radicals produced is more when compared to the naturally occurring antioxidants. The body has to maintain a balance in the antioxidant count, so an external supply of antioxidants are required. These antioxidants benefit the body by removing free radicals from the stream. The external supply of antioxidants is provided by fresh fruits and vegetables, which are called food antioxidants.
Food antioxidants provide various health benefits to different parts of the body. Beta carotene is a type of food antioxidant that is predominantly found in plants, and is beneficial for the eyes. Lycopene, another type of food antioxidant, is beneficial for prostate health. Flavonoid food antioxidants are beneficial for heart health, and proanthocyanidin food antioxidants are beneficial for urinary tract health. Food antioxidants help protect the skin from high levels of UV rays and photooxidative damage to the skin. Food antioxidants help enhance the immune system, and protect the cell membranes from cellular damage and mutations that can cause cancer.
Considering the various benefits of food antioxidants, the market is expected to have a positive outlook over the forecast period.
