And in Australia, such awareness is being noticed on a global scale.

Australia really is leading the way in the organic market, creating an impact large enough where other countries are now following our health trends to adopt a cleaner, healthier way of living which will nurture our bodies and the planet.
Below is a list of the key trends paving the way for Australians adopting a healthier way of living.
For skincare and makeup, any product containing a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals seems to be a key selling point for most Aussies. Boosting skin health by treating both the inside and the outside is resulting in most Aussies (male and female) looking for products which can deliver both.

A simple google search will bring up an unlimited amount of data, research and findings from the last twelve months, where science is now starting to show how important our gut health is to our mental health, skin health and overall body health.
To help achieve optimum levels in the gut, to support you through stressful times, when you are sick (or to stop you getting sick) and even deal with the occasion night where you ate WAY too much and enjoyed too many glasses of wine, brands like Rochway Probiotics have identified the most efficient way to boost gut health is in the form of a drink, instead of popping a supplement tablet.

These drinks have been designed to either take a shot on the bad days for the ultimate hit and health boost. Or simply place as little as half a shot in a bottle of water and sip it slowly throughout the day.
NO MORE SUGAR
First it was gluten and now it’s sugar. More and more people are turning away from sugar and with brands like More and Sweet Nectar hitting our Aussie snack markets, it’s become even easier to say no to both Sugar and Gluten.
Of course, raw foods and treats are nothing new with many cafes around Sydney (and Australia) serving up a variety of different snack alternatives to unhealthy types of cakes.

Swapping Kale Chips for Cauliflower ones. In America alone, there has been a seventy-one percent rise in the purchase of cauliflower over kale.
Popcorn is also being swapped for vegetable puffs and sticks, showing people are looking for healthier snacks to feed themselves and their families and looking for better alternatives to flavoured popcorn.
And although popcorn is not particularly unhealthy, they aren’t exactly nutritional, hence why people are now sourcing veggie chips, crisps, puffs and sticks.
Off the Eaten Path have created a fabulous range of puffs and sticks, made from pea and pinto bean, nuts and veggies, they have also created a range of legume puffs and sticks, all jammed packed with nutritional benefits.
