In the early 1900s, Nutrilite founder Carl Rehnborg studied the health and wellness needs of people in Asia and recognized the significance of more plant-based food with the right nutrients and minerals for the human body.

Backed by 90 years of science and research, Nutrilite is recognised as the only global vitamin and mineral brand to grow, harvest and process plants in its certified organic farms.¹

Amway’s goal of promoting well-being and encouraging people to live healthier is exemplified via the recently launched Nutrilite Gut Reset Health Management Programme which focuses on rebalancing the human gut microbiome.

In a survey conducted with 1,045 Malaysian respondents, 63% reported that “Weight” is the top health concern/goal, followed by “Stress” (47%), “Sleep” (46%) and “Heart” (44%)2.

The Nutrilite Gut Reset Health Management Programme helps prospects achieve their weight and fat loss goals through healthier nutrition, combined with supplement products to stimulate a healthier gut microbiome, more physical activity, sleep, mental health, and supportive communities. 

Michael  Duong, Amway Malaysia, Indonesia, and Brunei Managing Director, said “The Nutrilite Gut Reset Health Management program starts with weight management goals, but we also offer individual health screening through an exclusive partnership with leading Malaysian diagnostic company Innoquest Pathology.

“This is to raise people’s awareness of their health factors and risks for non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as hypertension, heart diseases, and diabetes.

“Amway wholeheartedly supports the Malaysian government’s efforts to address the growing health crisis of NCDs, which are linked to 73% of adult deaths, by addressing the risk factors, encouraging greater health awareness & diagnosis, adoption of healthy lifestyles, and strengthening preventative care,” elaborated Michael.
