Aging Boomers Spur Booming Health Industry In Punta Gorda
There are over 39 million Americans in the 65+ age group; about 13 percent of the population. By 2030, this number will increase to 72 million. (seniorcaremarketer.com). According to Senior Journal, about seven out of ten senior citizens are worried about their health.
The Centers for Disease Control reported that more than 40 percent of people aged 50 – 64 said they have problems with at least one of nine physical functions. (MSNBC on Baby Boomers). Heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease are the biggies.
XO healthy chocolate products can help protect Punta Gorda men and women from health threats. XO chocolate is a rich source of antioxidants. Antioxidants counter free radical cell damage which is linked to most age-related diseases.
I like this description of free radical damage found in an article from the Harvard School of Public Health:
“Free radicals come in many shapes, sizes, and chemical configurations. What they all share is a voracious appetite for electrons, stealing them from any nearby substances that will yield them. This electron theft can radically alter the “loser’s” structure or function.
Free radical damage can change the instructions coded in a strand of DNA. It can make a circulating low-density lipoprotein (LDL, sometimes called bad cholesterol) molecule more likely to get trapped in an artery wall. Or it can alter a cell’s membrane, changing the flow of what enters the cell and what leaves it.”
Antioxidant products are being snapped up by Punta Gorda people who are concerned about age-related health conditions. This trend will only increase as Punta Gorda baby boomers get older.
You can own your own SW Florida health business that sells the best-tasting antioxidant product on the market: XO antioxidant chocolate. Call me to find out how.
