“As Americans age, we recognize that many people are dealing with new issues and health concerns,” said Dr. Peter Bruno, medical director for the Insall Scott Kelly Institute for Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine, and attending physician at Lenox Hill Hospital and Beth Israel Hospital in New York City, NY. “This trends report provides a newsworthy, first-hand account of the physical and psychological concerns that the Boomer generation faces as Boomers approach retirement and beyond.”
Some of the more interesting findings include the insight that Boomers are aging differently than their parents—they want to continue living vital lives, and are experts in how to make that happen. They possess greater knowledge of the importance of remaining active and are their own best advocates for the supplements that will help them achieve that goal. The trends addressed in the white paper include: Don’t Call Me a Boomer; Let the Sun Shine; Supplements, the Seventh Food Group; Everyone’s an Expert; The Return of the Extended Family; Movement as Medicine; Matters of the Heart; Dreams Deferred; Make Way for the Elders; and The Big Limp.
