Wellness is now a big industry that has shown no signs of slowing down, with the industry growing globally by 12.8% from $3.7 trillion in 2015 to $4.2 trillion in 2017, according to the Global Wellness Economy Monitor. At Forever Living, we manufacture and sell a large selection of health and wellness products using aloe vera, so we have put together the wellness trends for 2019 to get you ahead of the game!
Hike to the top
In 2019 you don’t have to go to the gym in order to get in shape. Instead, try hiking; it is one of the most beneficial and best forms of exercise that doesn’t cost much and can be done almost anywhere, at any time. Hiking gets you out into nature, which in itself can be extremely healing.
Argi+ is the perfect sports drink for taking on your hikes because it contains five grams of l-arginine plus vitamin C, which contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, and vitamin D, which contributes to the maintenance of normal muscle function.
Rowing is on the rise
Rowing will have a big moment in the fitness world in 2019, with many people claiming it’s ‘the new spin’, so expect to see a huge rise in indoor rowing classes. The mix of strengthening and toning can give lots of benefits to your arms, legs, core and upper back because it forces you to straighten your body. As if that isn’t enough of an incentive, you can burn up to 1,200 calories within a 50-minute workout.
Health on the go
In our fast-paced world, there’s an increasing demand for healthier snacks and drinks that can be consumed on the go. This will include making protein even easier to consume than ever before! Forever Fast Break is a delicious, chocolate-covered, peanut butter bar that is chockfull with 11g of protein. These filling bars are a great snack when you need that little extra.
Ketogenic diet is here to stay
The already extremely popular ketogenic diet was the most-searched for diet in 2018 according to Google and this will increase in 2019. The main idea behind the ketogenic diet is to train your body to rely on fat, instead of glucose for fuel. When you minimise your intake of carbohydrates, you enter a metabolic state called ketosis. In this state the body produces ketone bodies from fat to use as energy. The ketogenic diet can help with everything from weight loss to lowering blood sugar and insulin levels.
More people choosing a vegan lifestyle
In the UK, the number of people identifying as vegan has increased by 350% compared to a decade ago, according to research commissioned by the Vegan Society, and 2019 will be the year that veganism goes from being considered a ‘trend’ to a normal part of life for many. This is enforced by celebrities and influencers sharing their vegan lifestyle on social media, increased awareness around the positive effect of plant foods on gut health, and the impact of animal products on the environment. Forever Aloe Vera Gel is vegan and great for skin, the immune system, it’s an ideal digestive aid and it contains vitamin C.
Friendly bacteria foods
People are looking for ways to cut out additives and preservatives and eat ‘cleaner’, which means looking for anti-inflammatory and healthy foods. Eating foods that contain gut-friendly bacteria will be a major trend of 2019. Think yoghurt, kefir, sauerkraut, and kimchi, just to name a few. Or, if you prefer, you can also take supplements such as Forever Active Pro B. This supplement complements your gut flora to assist you with your diet and lifestyle goals.
