Women’s Health, Nexira Unveils its New Clinical Study Results

Improving Women’s Urinary Comfort & Quality of Life with Exocyan™

Women’s Health Market: Focus on solving specific women’s health issues

Women’s health is gaining ground within the dietary supplements market: The 2020 CRN Council for responsible Nutrition Consumer survey on Dietary supplements found that 77% of American women currently take supplements, as compared to 68% of men.

The women’s health supplement market is projected to reach a value of US$2.2 billion in 20231 and there is a good reason for this growth; Women’s health evolves at every age and stage of their life. Supplement brands are increasingly targeting various and specific women’s related health issues, like urinary tract health: this supplement category grew by 13% in sales over the past year, according to proprietary SPINS data.

UTIs are one of the most frequent clinical bacterial infections in women, accounting for nearly 25% of all infections. Approximately 50–60% of women report at least one urinary tract infection (UTI) in their lifetime, and one in three will have at least one symptomatic UTI necessitating antibiotic treatment by age 242.
