Irelands ageing population highlights the need to prioritize health & wellbeing

As the population in Ireland ages, according to the latest Census figures, as a nation we need to prioritise our health and wellbeing. A new survey released today by Vitabiotics’ Well Range supplements shows that 1 in 3 believe that physical and mental wellbeing are the two most important factors for a healthy lifestyle. The research also found that 1 in 5 people admit to feeling unhealthy and all age groups report a shift from good to less good health over the past six years, with Gen X revealing that they are the generation that feel the unhealthiest.  The Vitabiotics Well Range is encouraging everyone to make their health and wellbeing their number one priority this year.

The survey also revealed that Gen Z places less importance on physical health and more on appearance, while Baby Boomers place a lot of importance on physical health. Men prioritize physical health over mental health, yet 1 in 4 men don’t take regular vitamins. 44% believe strengthening the immune system is the most important benefit for taking daily supplements, however 28% never or rarely ever take supplements.
