Berries, adaptogens and legumes are among the many researched ingredients touting potential benefits for healthy aging. The idea of supporting well-being as a preventive measure throughout the lifespan is becoming increasingly appealing to consumers, many of whom are looking for personalized nutrition options as simple as finding the right combination of diet, exercise, supplements and other modalities. In this podcast, recorded live at SupplySide West 2019 in Las Vegas, Michael Altman shares his perspective as an herbalist, nutritionist, practitioner, teacher and formulator. He joins INSIDER senior editor Karen Butler in discussing the healthy aging category, including:

• Advantages dietary supplements offer as compared to drawing all of one’s nutrients from food and beverage

• Numerous scientifically supported ingredients available to use in strategic formulations and enhance quality of life

• Sustainability considerations spanning ingredient supply and labor practices
