Infographic: Weight Management by the Numbers

Overweight and obesity are on the rise, but natural products targeted toward weight management--and related categories such as sports nutrition and digestive health--may help.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), overweight and obesity are linked to more deaths worldwide than underweight. In America, more than 68 percent of adults are overweight and 36.5 percent are obese, and an estimated 42 percent of Americans will be obese by 2030 (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC). Natural products can help, especially via solutions previously considered solely for sports nutrition or digestive health.

This infographic was excerpted from the “Tackling Weight Management With Nutrition” Workshop at SupplySide West 2017, from a presentation given by New Hope Network’s Rick Polito, editor in chief, and Claire Morton, senior industry analyst, featuring proprietary Nutrition Business Journal (NBJ) data.

The session was underwritten by NNB.
