The debut of Lifespan Clinic in the Winners library at Pharmaleaders Power Brand is a rare distinction as the award is conferred for its ability to bring awareness in a largely populated country like india. “The Primary factor that propelled the Jury is to look at the forward looking vision of the company coupled with the risk taking abilities & the visionary Leadership of steering the company in the complex business of healthcare where each day we are witnessing new competition, bigger challenges & ability to stay ahead of competition. Looking at the growing demands for a personalized care in Diabetes, your foray into the franchise business in the form of a massive growth plan to set up unique & specialized centre coupled with aggressive marketing in bringing awareness is indeed noteworthy. India is home to nearly 62 million diabetics – second only to China which has over 92 million diabetics. By 2030, India’s diabetes numbers are expected to cross the 100 million mark according to a 2012 report by International Diabetes Federation. The economic burden due to diabetes in India is among the highest in the world. Over 30 million have now been diagnosed with diabetes in India. The CPR (Crude prevalence rate) in the urban areas of India is thought to be 9 per cent.In rural areas, the prevalence is approximately 3 per cent of the total population.The population of India is now more than 1000 million: this helps to give an idea of the scale of the problem.The estimate of the actual number of diabetics in India is around 40 million.This means that India actually has the highest number of diabetics of any one country in the entire world. IGT (Impaired Glucose Tolerance) is also a mounting problem in India.The prevalence of IGT is thought to be around 8.7 per cent in urban areas and 7.9 per cent in rural areas, although this estimate may be too high. It is thought that around 35 per cent of IGT sufferers go on to develop type 2 diabetes, so India is genuinely facing a healthcare crisis”.

Lifespan is India’s largest chain of comprehensive diabetes and metabolic clinics. In a very short span of time, Lifespan has managed to establish itself as a specialized center for the treatment and management of diabetes and metabolic disorders.Lifespan began its mission of providing full care for people suffering from diabetes and metabolic disorders on 2nd September, 2013. Within such a short time, Lifespan has had more than 15,000 patient interactions

Birth of Lifespan Clinic India

The founder of Lifespan is Ashok Jain. On 24th October 1995, Ashok Jain was pronounced a diabetic with a reading of 429 mg/DL. Nineteen years of struggles and discoveries have inspired him with the vision of Lifespan Diabetes and Metabolic Clinics – a chain to help and support people like himself. To plan for, and operate this chain, Ashok draws upon his extensive experience in initiating and managing all-India franchise operations. He had earlier worked in a MNC food company in senior management positions for two decades before venturing 13 years ago to found Oxygen Healthcare and subsequently goodhealthandyou.com.Ashok’s own tribulations with diabetes and those of his various family members caused him to grapple with the question of how control over diabetes could be achieved. His work in the Healthcare field brought him in close contact with doctors, pharma companies, and patients.

What’s unique about the concept of Lifespan Clinics?

Lifespan Clinic offers India’s first Comprehensive Diabetes Management Programme. We bring in a whole new level of organized support and care through the use of state-of-the-art medicare for the treatment and management of diabetes. Eighteen years of struggles and discoveries have inspired me to have the vision of Lifespan Clinics – a chain to help and support people affected by diabetes. And, also prediabetics, of whom there are a huge number in this country.

Why a special clinic only for Diabetics and Pre-diabetics?

India is emerging as the diabetes capital of the world. Statistics are that we are nearing 10 Crore diabetics and 20 Crore pre-diabetics. Though the number of diabetics is increasing, we saw the limitations in the treatment options available to a diabetic. In order to address this need, we decided to start a chain of Lifespan Clinics that could offer comprehensive treatment and provide a unified solution with expertise, diagnosis and guidance under one roof for pre-diabetes and diabetes care.

 How come such a large number of diabetics and cases of pre-diabetes are said to go undetected? Is this a risk?

This is because of the nature of diabetes, it shows no tell-tale or attention-getting symptoms and that’s the reason it has been termed a `silent killer’. It has caused organ damage and affected important systems in your body even by the time you are declared diabetic. People think it is bothersome to go for blood tests with fasting, but there is hope that with easier and simpler methods such as our Lifespan Clinic’s R.I.S.C test, many more of them will be screened early.

If a person has excess body weight, comes from a family where any of the parents or siblings are diabetic, or have hypertension, have a highly sedentary occupation as well as personal life – it would be foolhardy to not get tested for diabetes. If they are identified early to be diabetic, this will save them from the severe complications associated with diabetes.

How do you differentiate Lifespan Clinics from other clinics or a specialty hospital where a Diabetic could get treated?

At a stand-alone healthcare clinic, the expertise is scattered and no two consultations are the same. Time also is a constraint. Lifespan Clinics offers a unique approach to treating diabetes. We prepare an individualised management plan that takes into consideration the patient’s lifestyle, dietary habits, nature of work, family work, personal medical history and current fitness.

We give patients a unified solution with expertise, diagnosis and guidance under one roof. The unique R.I.S.C. test is something we have pioneered in India. It is a comprehensive, non-invasive and painless 7 min. procedure that measures 30 health parameters.At Lifespan, our diabetes specialists provide their undivided attention for a guaranteed 30 minute consultation; hence there is no time constraint. Further, there’s uniformity of treatment standards across all clinics that are designed to maximize convenience, therapy effectiveness and continuity of care and support.

How do your patients benefit from Lifespan Clinics?

Since Lifespan Clinics provides a unified solution with expertise, diagnosis and guidance under one roof, patients need not look further.The best part of Lifespan Clinics is the support that patients get all the time to adopt a healthier lifestyle, because as we like to tell them, the person who can help them win over diabetes is themselves.

How do you see Lifespan Clinics placed 5 years down the line? What are your future plans?

We are expanding on this concept of Comprehensive Diabetes Treatment Centres and extending the chain to all major cities across India. We have set ourselves a target of 1000 Lifespan Clinics across 20 major cities in India.

What is your business model, especially the franchisee led one?

As a franchisee, you would need to have approx 1000 sq. feet in an easily accessible location in the city or the suburbs. You should have the capacity to arrange for doctors and dieticians, and be able to invest Rs.15-30 lacs. Lifespan will only collect 20% of collections as Franchise Fee. We provide our franchises with the Lifespan R.I.S.C Test machine.

What would be the advantages for your franchisees of being associated with Lifespan India?

Good work always gives returns. As Diabetes is a major challenge & there are a huge number of diabetics, we expect a decent return on investment.We also provide media support, branding, call center support, software, back end support, field support, training, website, electronic medical records and other needed support.We build better brand value by advertising through Times of India which has a readership of over 76 lac. as per Indian Readership Survey (2012).We share with them the belief and commitment to extending the quality of our clientele’s health.

According to experts, nutraceuticals & functional foods would help mitigate malnutrition in India. Although, there is a huge potential for the growth of the sector, yet its development is slow. The country has a long way to go to en-cash much of its bio-agri wealth.

Speaking to Mr. Satya Brahma, Editor-In-Chief, Pharmaleaders Group, on the reason of investing in an Indian Company, Mr. Francois Liccope, CEO, Eubage Laboratories said, “there has been an increasing awareness among the rising affluent middle class about health and wellness. Nearly 400 million people in India belong to the middle class and have disposable income which have made them capable of buying nutraceuticals and dietary supplements. It is an inevitable fact that affluence is one of the causes of lifestyle diseases, which nutraceuticals and dietary supplements often address. These factors will support the double digit growth of the industry in the coming few years”. Nutraceuticals could complement drugs and can reduce over-dependence on medicines for treatment. There is considerable scope for value-addition of agri-by products. The biodiversity and traditional knowledge could make India a world leader in nutraceutical market.

Speaking on the scientific & technical edge over other players, Francois said “Eubage Laboratory develops its know-how and expertise to ensure reliable, efficient and traceable, productions. It has a Careful selection of raw materials & a highly trained  Team of dedicated and approved professionals. Totally independent of any pharmaceutical group, Eubage Laboratory is distinguished by its flexibility and responsiveness. The Eubage ranges are marketed in several European countries under different types of representation, and preferred collaborations are established with  partners for the distribution of those productions under our own brand or under the label of the distributor. Scientific and trade services of  Eubage Laboratory are available for any feasibility study, in different dosage forms.Eubage  Laboratory provides an advanced  response to ethical nutrient and nutritional supplement markets throughout various countries. Our Innovation: The Catalyst C89 Enzymes are biological catalysts involved in many reactions essential for the proper functioning of a living organism. These macromolecules of proteins or RNA specifically recognize several molecules and accelerate transforming reactions to made their speed consistent with the functioning of the organism: they are biological catalysts, or biocatalysts. Enzyme activity regulation can normalize cellular metabolism. This activity depends strongly on the conformation of the enzyme, and thus of the shape of its sites, which can be modified via phosphorylation and dephosphorylation.Convergence point of several catabolic reactions of cellular metabolism, discovered by the biologistHans Adolf Krebs in 1937, the “Krebs Cycle” is a series biochemical reactions whose purpose is to produce energy feedstocks which will be used for ATP production in the respiratory chain. Composed of 8 steps each of which is catalyzed by a specific enzyme active during processing a chemical reaction in order to change its rate of reaction, both homogeneous and heterogeneous, in aerobic conditions, these enzymes, localized in the mitochondrial matrix or at the inner mitochondrial membrane, catalyze this reaction sequence. The Krebs Cycle is the ultimate degradation process of different metabolites.

Dietary supplements are the largest category accounting for 64 per cent of the nutraceuticals market, driven primarily by the pharmaceutical sector in the form of vitamin and mineral supplements. Functional foods will be the quickest growing category until 2015 followed by dietary supplements.However, dietary supplements, specifically herbal and dietetic supplements, will form the greatest opportunity areas for nutraceutical manufacturers, driven by growing demand from an evolving consumer base. Most of the leading pharmaceuticals companies have ventured into nutrition and nutraceuticals space and have a growing portfolio of such products which targets various therapeutic segments. This trend is increasingly on the rise and will continue to grow to a large extent in turn adding to the growth of the nutraceuticals industry.

With the growing popularity of these supplemented foods, many multinationals are investing in the nutraceuticals market in India. These include Monsanto, American Home Products, DuPont, BioCorrex, Abbott Laboratories, GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare, Johnson & Johnson, Nestle, Novartis, Yakult-Danone India, Herbalife etc. These players are a major resource for nutraceuticals and related dietary supplements. Besides, India has many local players such as Dabur India, Cadila Healthcare, British Biologicals, Himalaya Global Holdings, Sami Labs, Sami Direct, Parry Nutraceuticals, Wockhardt etc.

The global demand for nutraceutical ingredients is forecast to rise 7.2 per cent annually to $30 billion in 2017 according. The best growth prospects will exist in substances with clinically supported health benefits and broad applications in foods, beverages, dietary supplements and adult and pediatric nutritional preparations.

Countries such as Brazil, China, India, Mexico and Turkey will be among the fastest growing consumers and producers of nutraceutical ingredients worldwide. Increasing economic prosperity will enable these countries to expand and diversify their food and beverage, processing, and pharmaceutical industries. In 2017, China, alone, will absorb more than 16 per cent of the value of global nutraceutical ingredient demand and will account for over 18 per cent of the value of related world shipments. Because of maturing markets, the supply and demand of nutraceutical ingredients in the United States, Western Europe, and other developed economies will increase more slowly than the average worldwide pace. Nonetheless, food, beverage and pharmaceutical companies in these economies will continue to pursue opportunities in conventional and speciality nutritional products and natural medicines. As a result, they will remain key customers for nutraceutical ingredients.

Nutrients, including proteins, fibres and various specialized functional additives, will remain the top-selling group of nutraceutical ingredients worldwide. Proteins will post the fastest demand gains as food and beverage makers throughout the world will introduce new high value-added nutritional preparations. Functional additives and fibre nutrients will also fare well in the global marketplace.Demand for these ingredients will gain upward momentum from increasing clinical evidence of health benefits and expanding applications in speciality foods and beverages.Naturally derived substances, consisting of herbal and botanical extracts and animal- and marine-based derivatives, will see the fastest growth among the three major groups of nutraceutical ingredients. Among these substances, omega fatty acids derived from fish oils and other marine sources will lead gains, reflecting clinically proven cardiovascular benefits and expanding use in dietary supplements and nutritional therapies.

The rising popularity of preventive medicine will impact favourably on global demand for numerous other natural extracts and derivatives, including cranberry, garlic, ginkgo biloba, ginseng; and glucosamine and chondroitin.Well established applications in food and beverage fortification; infant, adult, and paediatric nutritionals; and dietary supplements will continue to be a large global market for mineral and vitamin ingredients. Within this group, essential minerals such as calcium, along with vitamin A and vitamin C substances, will post the fastest gains in world demand.

Pharmaleaders survey indicated that there are more than 8,000 registered and non-registered nutraceuticals, herbs and related companies in India but most of them are small and medium enterprises. The increasing need for additional nutrition and food security concerns in India has resulted in government to introduce schemes for vitamin fortification.

Overall, the Indian nutraceutical market is emerging with strong growth potential. With increasing health awareness, and the shift towards preventative health care and increased regulatory clarity, India’s future in nutraceuticals industry looks promising, for both manufacturers and consumers. However, there is a strong need of developing customized products, affordable pricing and distribution strategy. Though India holds only 10 per cent market share in the global nutraceutical market that will be a $250 billion industry by 2018, the country has a definite edge over China, which is the first rank holder in the industry, with better research and quality compliance. Industry experts point out that as the world back off from buying food supplements and nutraceuticals from China due to pollution and quality issues, India has a great advantage in the global market. The term Nutraceutical is applied to products that range from isolated nutrients, dietary supplements and herbal products, specific diets and processed foods such as cereals, soups, and beverages.

Though the annual growth rate of the industry is 7 per cent, in India it is growing at around 20 per cent annually. The country has a huge potential in this segment as 7,000 medicinal plants were identified in the country, but nutraceutical properties of majority of these plants remain untapped. The products from India are being exported to the US, Europe and Far East Asian countries.“As the quality standards in the US and Europe have been increasing continuously, China is losing its grip due to pollution and contamination problems. Even though China produces at least 10 times more these products, in terms of quality parameters India is far ahead. The awareness about the side effects of drugs is increasing drastically around the world which throws up good opportunities for Nutraceuticals and India. If we invest more on research, we could be a super power in the sector,” said Francois. Nutraceuticals are the exaggerated version of Ayurveda in which India has surely an upper hand. Companies from India are making strides in this market and the global presence of Indian products has been increasing recently.China is presently the second largest consumer and largest producer of the Nutraceuticals in the world. On the other hand, countries such as South Korea and Australia have also noticed an increasing growth trajectory in the Nutraceuticals market.
