(formerly Marsh Co., Ltd.) (Higashi Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Shoichi Machida) conducted a “questionnaire survey on food and beauty ingredients” for women in their 20s and 60s nationwide.

Increasing frequency with age Ingredients that can be expected to have an intestinal effect are easy to realize The ideal form of ingestion is overwhelmingly many “food ingredients such as vegetables and fruits” Many people expect “calcium” as an ingredient from food
■ “Food fiber” and “lactic acid bacteria” are the top ingredients Many people take consciously of “dietary fiber” and “lactic acid bacteria” at any age. It is thought that there are many people who expect an intestinal regulating effect. There was a tendency for the components to be conscious to increase as the age increased, and among them, “Calcium” was markedly higher in the 60s than in other ages. Q. Please select all the ingredients that you normally take consciously from the following. (Multiple selections possible) [Image 1

Ingredients taken consciously
■ Intake ingredients almost every day Ingredients taken are taken almost every day, indicating that they are consciously taking it. Among them, dietary fiber, lactic acid bacteria, and isoflavones are prominent, and are recognized as ingredients with a strong consciousness that they must be taken regularly. Looking at the frequency of intake by age, it tends to increase as the age increases, and awareness and behavior are linked. Q. How often do you take the following ingredients?

Frequency of taking ingredients
■ It is easy to feel the ingredients that can be expected to have an “intestinal effect” Among the ingredients that are consciously taken by many people, many responded that they had felt the effects of “dietary fiber” and “lactic acid bacteria”. It can be seen that there are many people who have purchased the anti-intestinal effect and feel the effect. This may be the manifestation of many people having troubles around the intestines such as constipation. By age group, the percentage of middle-aged and older people who feel the effects of almost all ingredients is higher than that of young people. In particular, it can be seen that there is a large difference in actual feeling between the ages of “isoflavone” and “collagen”. It is thought that there is an age difference in the actual feeling of effect due to the difference in the depth of worries and symptoms. Q. Have you ever felt that taking the following ingredients is effective? (Select one for each) [Image 3
