Garden Cress Market: Drivers and Restraints
Garden cress has several critical health benefits and plays an important role in fields of medicines and drug. Anemia is a condition in which the number of red blood cells or their oxygen-carrying capacity is insufficient to meet physiologic needs, which varies by age, sex, altitude, smoking, and pregnancy status. Iron deficiency is thought to be the most common cause of anemia globally. Iron deficiency anemia is an important public health problem in the Eastern Mediterranean Region. It is estimated that more than one-third of the population in the region is anemic. Pregnant women and young children are most at risk, i.e., about 50% of pregnant women and 63% of children under 5 years of age have iron deficiency anemia. Garden cress consists of vitamin B6 that is required to create hemoglobin in the blood, which is transported by red blood cells throughout the body to help bring oxygen to cells and to mobilize iron. Consumption of vitamin B6 can help lower symptoms of anemia and prevent it from occurring in some instances. However manufacturer will have to carry out several awareness and promotional programs among its target segments since the penetration of the product is comparatively low. Besides its challenges, its critical functions and properties of garden cress are driving the demand for the product in the global market.
