Report: Consumers Are Taking Health And Wellness Matters Into Their Own Hands


The wellness market in the U.S. is worth $480 billion and is expected to grow 5% to 10% annually, according to a new report from Stagwell’s Assembly. 

According to the report consumers are taking health and wellness matters into their own hands more than ever before. 



Case in point: the report cites research finding that that 71% of Gen Z and Millennials sometimes turn to social media to self-diagnose conditions instead of seeking out a healthcare professional. 

It also cites research finding that 71% of Americans express interest in taking a microbiome test to get personalized diet recommendations.
