While different food fads come and go, we’ll always rely on trends to influence the way we eat. Every year, new trends emerge that push the boundaries of what people will buy, and this year is no different.
Here, we’re sharing five of the trendiest health products for 2020 that you should know about.
1) Colon Cleanse Supplements
Yes, you read that right: colon cleanse. These pills, made up of magnesium, enzymes and blended herbs, clear your digestive system in a natural way without any chemicals. Beyond treating constipation and inflammation, colon cleanses promote regularity, nutrient absorption, and purified blood.
The major selling-points are the all-natural ingredients, making this trend vegan and non-GMO.
2) CBD Oil
In recent years, CBD oil exploded in popularity. Athletes, influencers, and celebrities swear by using it. Without the psychoactive part of marijuana, CBD oil reduces stress and physical aching for those that use it.
If you struggle with sleep, soreness, or general anxiety, CBD oil promotes itself as a natural treatment. But before you rush out to buy it make sure you research these products first. Every country has different laws about CBD, and you want to make sure you’re purchasing safe products from trusted retailers.
3) Jade Egg
Who could leave out the Jade Egg? Made of a dark mineral fashioned into a smooth egg shape, it sells itself on every wellness front. Its energy crystal healing, all together with Kegel-exercise routines, make this a top-level trend.
In 2017 and 2018, the egg was featured across social media and news outlets as people debated its health benefits. Celebrity endorsements and an ensuing court case made it extremely famous. Despite the controversy, jade eggs won’t be leaving shelves anytime soon.
4) Grounding Mats
Did you ever feel a few electrons short? Do you feel lacking right now? Then you need a grounding mat. The principle is to connect our bodies to the earth through a grounding wire and balance out electrons.
The health benefits for the grounding mat include better sleep, concentration, and overall well being. With the increase of people working from home, the grounding mat markets itself as the perfect way to unwind, work well, and get the most out of sleep.
5) Himalayan Salt Lamp
You may have seen Himalayan salt in upscale supermarkets. It can be distinguished by its pinkish color, often sold in larger unground rocks than table salt. The claim made for these salt lamps is they ionize the air particles by disturbing the balance of electrons to protons.
It sounds like a lofty claim, and it may be. But the same principle occurs with waterfalls and storms. Customers believe that these salt lamps can clean the air, boost your mood, and help you sleep.
6) Mushroom Coffee
Have you ever wanted to add mushroom to your morning coffee? Probably not. But, according to users, it boosts your productivity along with your immune system.
Mushrooms contain many useful nutrients that promote health when cooked and eaten. But this new fad swears by the benefits that a powdered mushroom mixture adds to your morning pick-me-up.
7) Rose Quartz Facial Rollers
Supposedly, rose quartz has been used in beauty and wellness routines for centuries. Nowadays, beauty brands are bringing it back by using the precious stone in facial rollers. These are designed to be rolled over the face and neck skin before skincare products or makeup is applied.
Rose quartz rubbed against the skin is meant to aid the body’s lymphatic system and help skincare products absorb better. It’s also thought to soothe puffiness, induce calm, and help users relax.
8) Meditation Apps
Another ancient practice that has experienced a boom this year is meditation. Aided by apps like Calm and Headspace, meditation has been brought into the mainstream from previously being stereotyped as the reserve of new-age hippies.
Everyone from businesspeople to busy new parents are using these apps to take ten minutes to relax. They usually include guided breathing exercises and reflections on your day. Check out the top meditation apps available for your smart device to see if this could be for you.
