Statistics show that between 1971 and 2006, use of dietary supplements increased 23 percent among adults 50 years of age and younger, while use jumped 40 percent among adults over 50. A survey of supplement users in 2011 reported that improvement of overall health stands out as the most common reason for taking supplements, while maintenance of current health comes in a close second. Among specific targets for improvement, bone health stood out as the most popular reason for supplement intake.
Women are more than three times as likely as men to take a bone health supplement. Men tend to express more of an interest in supplements for heart health, while women seek products that improve sleep, blood iron levels, and skin and hair health. They are also more likely to take iron, probiotics, and B vitamins, although men tend to take more vitamin C, minerals, and amino acids. Probiotics and digestive enzymes as well as B vitamins and CoQ10 have experienced the greatest increase in popularity as of a 2013 survey, while calcium and multivitamins are becoming less popular.

By increasing access to education, the Foundation attempts to keep children in school and continue their learning. Additionally, it runs a Back to School campaign that provides youths with backpacks filled with essential school supplies, as well as the Simin Behbahani Memorial Scholarship, which goes to female students in need.
Along with its educational endeavors, the Child Foundation has contributed medical resources and supported health initiatives in the Middle East. In November 2014, nearly 200 people, including more than 20 women, donated blood at the Foundation’s blood drive at Mola-Ali Hospital in Mazar-e-Sharif, Afghanistan. The blood went to children with thalassemia, who needed blood transfusions. To learn about upcoming events within the United States and around the world, log onto www.childfoundation.org.

In addition to managing the company’s purchasing and marketing efforts, Mohsen (Max) Motamedian also maintains an active interest in real estate.
The National Association of Realtors recently publicized findings from the August 2014 REALTORS® Confidence Index Survey, which polls more than 50,000 real estate professionals each month to gain a nationwide perspective on expectations for future pricing, market growth, and home sales. According to the results of the August 2014 survey, practitioners expect home prices to modestly increase over the next year, with an estimated 3.5 percent price increase on average. These expectations vary based on local conditions like inventory levels, credit conditions, and state job markets.
In states like Florida, Hawaii, and Texas, practitioners anticipate price increases closer to five or six percent, due to elevated job growth from the oil and technology sectors. Real estate practitioners from the Great Lakes area also expect a three-to-five percent price increase as a result of activities in the manufacturing and automotive industries.
