Health Trends To Keep Your Eyes On In 2018

From nootropics to mitochondria, predictions are coming out for the top health trends to keep your eyes on in 2018. Some of these trends look promising, and some of them will have you adding a few new words to your vocabulary. Regardless of the predictions, one thing is for sure: 2018’s upcoming health trends focus on what is good for you — both inside and out — in innovative ways.

Here are some health trends to keep your eyes on in 2018:

Gut Health Microbiome

While probiotics may not be new to you, more awareness is being brought to this gut enhancing bacteria and how it interacts with the rest of the microbiome. The rise of prebiotic and probiotic foods in previous years (think sauerkraut and kimchi) are now combining with new awareness of what is going on with our intestinal health. New discoveries are indicating that fungi also plays an important role in balancing digestive health. Look for more research to come out on this topic as 2018 progresses.

Green Beauty

You may have heard that your skin is your largest organ, so it is surprising that it has taken until 2018 for “green beauty” to gain momentum. Anything you are exposed to via the air, pollution, and chemicals in the form of lotions and makeups, all get absorbed into your skin. Now, cosmetic companies are taking notice. Look for green beauty to be on the rise in 2018 in the form of more cosmetics going on the marketing that contain no toxic chemicals.

Intermittent Fasting

While there are proponents for both camps — both for and against fasting as a tool for health — intermittent fasting is on the rise as one of the upcoming health trends to keep your eyes on in 2018.  Intermittent fasting involves cycling between periods of eating and fasting. Among the benefits of intermittent fasting are improved metabolism, the propensity to live longer, weight loss and more. Before you decide to adopt this upcoming health trend, be sure to consult with your doctor or health professional.

Technology For Snoozing

We’ve seen adjustable beds, but the beds of 2018 will be smart beds and pillows. In 2018, look for beds that can not only analyze your REM cycle, but also wake you up at the perfect time as well. In addition to “smart” beds, we’ll see the rise of temperature regulating sleepwear in 2018 too. After all, they say the ideal sleeping temperature is 65 degrees, so now we will have the technology to keep our sleep environments ideal for us, aiding in better sleep.
