Product of the Year: Immune Support
Immune support is no longer a seasonal category, but products that are in-demand all year round. Many new products launched in 2020 to ride the wave of surging consumer interest in natural products to support their immune function, from vitamins and minerals to botanical blends and microbiome modulators. This award celebrates the best branded or own-label supplements, functional foods and beverages for supporting immune health.
Our judging panel will base their decision on the following criteria:
- Brand recognition and the commercial success of your product, including evidence of strong retail and consumer interest or listings of your product.
- Consumer demand and interest in your format, delivery system, and/or matrix – including how innovative any delivery system is.
- Whether your product meets a consumer demand, and how relevant the core ingredient is in meeting this demand
- Packaging ease of use and design, including appeal and ease of use, novelty
- Evidence that the product works for its specified use, where possible this will be product specific research, however research citing the main active ingredients solely will also be considered.
- Evidence of that your product and its delivery system(s) has no, or beneficial, impact on bioavailability (especially if citing single ingredient data).
- What gives your product the ‘X factor’ – something that makes it stand out from the crowd and edge out the competition (including evidence to back up claims)
