Avoiding high medical costs through health foods and supplements

Not surprisingly, sales of health foods and supplements (as reported by Chinese ingredient group Fencham ) are on the rise as a means to avoid high medical costs. The specific consumer segments integrating these functional foods and supplements into their lives aren't identified. However, we do know there are two segments -- the Well Beings and the Food Actives -- most predisposed to these proactive practices.
