In the ever-changing world of consumer wellness, staying on top of trends can be interesting for companies and individuals looking to improve their well-being. As we approach 2024, a host of new products and services that will revolutionize the wellness industry are on the way.

By considering these innovations, consumers can contribute to a healthier and more sustainable future by aligning their choices with values beyond personal well-being and considering the planet's well-being. The journey to 2024 promises exciting opportunities for growth, connection, and a deeper understanding of what it means to feel good in a rapidly changing world.

Personalized Nutrition Takes Center Stage

Personalization is a buzzword in wellness, and in 2024, it's not just about fitness routines. The focus is shifting to personalized nutrition plans considering individual dietary preferences, health goals, and genetic factors. Companies are leveraging advanced technologies to offer customized meal plans and nutritional supplements, giving consumers a more holistic and personalized approach to nutrition.

This change represents a move away from one-size-fits-all nutritional recommendations. Instead, consumers can expect a more nuanced view of their nutritional needs, resulting in optimized health outcomes. From Ai-driven wellness apps to genetic testing that influences dietary choices, personalized nutrition will be an integral part of the wellness journey in 2024.

Technology-Driven Mindfulness and Mental Wellbeing

As mental health awareness increases, technology can help in providing accessible solutions. Health wearables and apps are evolving beyond simple fitness tracking to incorporate features that promote mindfulness and mental well-being. Expect innovations like real-time stress detection, guided meditation experiences, and personalized mental health metrics to make it easier for individuals to manage their emotional and mental states.

For example, meditation apps with biofeedback mechanisms are becoming increasingly sophisticated, providing users with insights into the effectiveness of their meditation sessions. This technology integration into mindfulness practices is not intended to replace traditional methods but to enhance and personalize the meditation experience.

Optimizing Human Performance

Within this overarching trend, several sub-trends are poised to take center stage in 2024:

Nootropics and Cognitive Enhancement

Consumers are increasingly turning to nootropics, substances believed to improve cognitive function to optimize their mental performance. From using brain-boosting supplements to smart medications, the market is seeing a surge in products to improve concentration, memory, and overall cognitive performance.

In 2024, a more comprehensive understanding of the effects of nootropics is expected, with formulation-based research becoming more prevalent. The stigma surrounding cognitive enhancement is decreasing as people look for ways to develop their full mental potential responsibly.

Sleep Optimization Technologies

Quality sleep is considered a cornerstone of wellness. Technological innovations to optimize sleep are expected to take the spotlight, with innovative mattresses, sleep tracking devices, and AI-powered sleep analytics designed to help people understand and improve their sleep patterns.

Integrating environmental technologies into the sleep environment will improve sleep. Smart lighting systems that mimic natural circadian rhythms and advanced white noise machines based on individual preferences are just the beginning of innovations aimed at optimizing sleep.

Human Reinforcement to Improve Health

Advances in wearable technology and implantable devices paved the way for human augmentations to improve physical health. Consumers are exploring options to enhance their natural abilities and overcome physical limitations, from smart prosthetics to biofeedback devices.

In 2024, the focus will go beyond performance enhancement to therapeutic applications. Implantable devices for chronic pain management and wearable technologies for physical rehabilitation are on the horizon, representing a new era in the intersection of technology and health.

Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Wellness Choices

With growing environmental awareness, consumers are looking for wellness products and services that align with sustainable practices. From eco-friendly packaging to responsible sourcing, companies will incorporate sustainable initiatives while recognizing the interconnections between personal well-being and the health of the planet.

In 2024, sustainability in wellness will not just be a marketing strategy but a core value embedded in product development and service offerings. Consumers will have access to a broader range of sustainable options, allowing them to make choices that benefit both their health and the environment.

Virtual Wellness Communities and Experiences

The concept of wellness communities is expanding into the digital space. Virtual platforms are becoming hubs for like-minded people to connect, share experiences, and participate in group wellness activities. Whether virtual workout classes, online support groups, or immersive wellness retreats in virtual reality, digital space fosters a sense of community and collective well-being.

Virtual wellness communities in 2024 will transcend geographic boundaries and allow individuals to engage with diverse perspectives and expertise. The immersive nature of virtual reality experiences will make wellness more accessible and inclusive and promote a global dialogue about wellness.

As we move through these emerging trends, it is clear that the consumer wellness landscape in 2024 will be dynamic and transformative. From personalized nutrition to technology-enabled mental wellness solutions, these trends reflect a holistic approach to health that considers individual needs and the broader environmental impact.

Shipping & Handling

A safe and accurate address for delivery must be provided at the time the order is placed. Once an order has shipped, is NOT responsible for lost or stolen packages CONFIRMED BY THE CARRIER to be delivered to the address provided for the order.

Since COVID-19, and the ensuing economic challenges in the USA economy, we respectfully ask that you allow some additional time for delivery for the carriers (USPS, UPS, and FedEx). Most orders still arrive on time, or near on time, but some may run late. We make every effort to get your order packed and into the carriers hands the same day, or by the next business morning if your order came in later in the previous day after carrier pickup, but we have no control over any delays that may happen within the shipping carrier's delivery system. Please order earlier for the time being if you are time-sensitive.

Orders that contain only FirstFitness Nutrition products have a shipping fee automatically calculated based upon the actual shipping weight of the items purchased. The charge ranges from $4.95 to $14.95.

For orders with NuMedica products you may choose from the shipping options below on the Order Checkout form in the Shipping Information section on the first line that says Choose Shipping Method.

International Shipping

Shipping anything these days internationally is expensive. COVID resulted in more rigorous customs import processes, and now with much higher energy prices, international shipping rates are higher.

FedEx is the most reliable and faster carrier, at least for now, but they are expensive. Our FedEx international shipping fee is a minimum of $79.95. It usually makes more sense to get several months of supply (3 months or more) in one order to minimize the shipping expense per order over time. While the added weight of additional items may increase the base shipping price by a little (usually 10-25% depending upon total weight and destination), it is usually not by very much relative to shipping an additional small order later.

We also offer a lower-cost international shipping option using GlobalPost International for $39.95. So far, they have been reliable in getting packages correctly delivered but it takes 2 - 4 times as long to get the package delivered. Packages may take longer to process in the receiving country's customs process and status updates may not be reported as quickly. Please be patient if you choose this option to save money.

Some International orders may cost more to ship depending upon weight and location. If that happens we will contact you first and get your approval for any additional charge before proceeding. International orders may also be subject to additional customs fees and duties/taxes based upon the destination country's customs import laws and policies. These fees are NOT known or included on our order form and are typically charged and collected by the shipping carrier when they are delivering the product to it's final destination once the package has cleared the destination country's customs process. It is recommended that the buyer research custom import fees for the products/services they are importing beforehand to be aware of potential, additional fees.

Shipping Refrigerated Products

Our manufacturers formulate their probiotics to ensure their products retain viability until they reach the consumer. Probiotics that are recommended to be refrigerated remain so until the time of shipment, then shipped alongside an ice pack to ensure potency (Note: Ice pack will not arrive frozen, and product may not arrive cold). Orders placed on a Thursday-Sunday requiring cold shipping will not ship until the following Monday.


If your order has not been shipped yet, you can request a cancellation. Your original purchase amount will be refunded within three business days. If your order has already shipped, see Returns and Refunds.

If we have made a mistake on your order, or the product arrives in a damaged or unusable condition, we will make every reasonable effort to right the situation quickly to your satisfaction. Problems of this nature must be reported to us within 5 business days of the package delivery date documented by the carrier status.

We accept returns subject to when the return is requested and the condition the product is returned in. All returns must first be authorized by contacting us. In your request, please let us know why you are returning the item(s). We will respond promptly with authorization, the return address, and a return shipping label if appropriate.

You may use the original packaging for the return or acquire your own. We will provide the return shipping label.
