NMI (Natural Marketing Institute) is pleased to release its much awaited report: 2015 Trends in Healthy Living, now in its 16th year, which examines consumer attitudes and behaviors toward healthy living and the health and wellness marketplace as a whole.

Maryellen Molyneaux, NMI Managing Partner, shares "this research uncovers insights into how today's consumer integrates health and wellness into their lifestyle and reveals their motivations and the challenges they encounter in their pursuit.

Many factors are driving multiple categories across the U.S. For example, aging drives condition-specific needs, and increased consumer knowledge and desire for specific product features and benefits drive natural, organic, gluten-free and plant-based options. The need for education and an understanding of these drivers that affect consumer behavior patterns has never been stronger".

NMI's objectives in this research are to provide insights into how consumer attitudes and behaviors toward health and wellness have changed over the past 16 years and how these changes may impact the future landscape of the health and wellness industry. A glimpse into the report...
