Here at Antiaging Nutrition, we are constantly striving to provide you with access to high-quality, natural antiaging medicines, along with other longevity-based health products.
We understand that the world of medicine is a dynamic environment, with new discoveries and studies constantly changing the way we approach healthcare.
With this in mind, we have created a brief questionnaire, with the goal of discovering our audience’s thoughts on the state of modern healthcare and medicine.
The survey was conducted from October to November 2014, and the feedback received has enabled us to gain an insight into your opinions surrounding ‘over the counter’ (OTC) medicine, and better understand your needs to further tailor the goods we supply.
We’ve now collated the data, and have extracted some of the best findings below.
It’s Never Too Early To Invest In Antiaging Medicine
28.57% of our respondents were aged 26-35, whilst 23.81% were in the 56-65 age bracket.
It’s worth noting, these age groups represent two pinnacle moments in our lives. Our late twenties/early thirties are usually the stage where we begin to differentiate from youthful trends and develop mature attitudes towards both health and our everyday lifestyle. Similarly, it is after 40, during our late fifties, when our age really begins to cause issues with our health.
However, the survey has also helped us determine that fear of aging begins sooner than most would assume, with just under 15% of respondents looking into longevity techniques as early as their late twenties.
We Don’t Spend That Much On Natural Healthcare
But even the smallest of investments can be incredibly beneficial.
Our survey found that a whopping 42.11% spend under £20 on vitamins and supplements each month, whilst 21.05% spend an average £101-£200, and just 10.53% spend £201-£301.
People Do Not Trust Modern Medicine
The survey helped us summarise that whilst the majority of people may not spend hundreds on vitamins and natural supplements each month, there is an underlying mistrust for modern medicine.
As the below graph clearly indicates, the majority of people questioned would openly consider using natural and nutritional remedies as oppose to readily available, mainstream drugs.
When we asked our respondents why they had this opinion, the following reasons were given:
The survey revealed that this mistrust for modern medicine runs so deep, that even the reliability of products which are endorsed by trusted names are being questioned.
When asked whether they would trust medicinal products more if they had a recognisable doctor recommending them for use, we received fairly mixed responses.
Whilst the majority are steered towards agreement that a product endorsed by a doctor is more trustworthy, there are still considerable numbers that disagree.
Our findings also suggest that women are more likely to trust doctor-endorsed products than men, as are the older generation.
We Focus On Fruit And Veg For Good Health
When asked to rank the importance of undertaking certain activities to maintain a healthy lifestyle, over 70% of our users ranked getting their ‘five-a-day’ as the most important, with 47% agreeing that exercise was also imperative.
Meanwhile, calorie counting and dieting were ranked as the least important factors for living healthily, with 35.29% and 23.53% of users voting against these methods.
People Prefer To Exercise Outside
When it comes to keeping fit, people would prefer to undertake exercise either at a gym, or in the great outdoors.
It was positive to see that over a quarter of respondents were committed to keeping a healthy lifestyle, with 29.41% visiting a gym weekly.
With this knowledge to hand, we’ll be able to tailor the blog posts we create to better suit your needs.
What Are You Concerned About?
Throughout our study we were very interested in discovering which illnesses our audience were most concerned about.
The end results perfectly reflected the age of our respondents, with concern for certain age-related ailments increasing as the years increased.
For example, 60% of respondents aged 56-65 said they were very concerned about arthritis, whereas 50% of 26-35-year-olds said they had no opinion on arthritis, but were concerned about cancer.
Overall, cancer, heart disease and arthritis stood out as the three major concerns for respondents, with 41.18% stating they were very concerned about both cancer and heart disease.
Much of the information we release on our blog is centred on living healthily. By understanding the illnesses our respondents are most concerned about, we are able to deliver highly relevant information to our audience.
We also found that the majority of people agree that when it comes to illnesses, prevention is better than cure. You’ll find a wide range of products which are focussed on preventing the effects of aging and other related illnesses in the Antiaging Nutrition store.
