Containing turmeric, licorice and acerola cherries, this ‘East Meets West. Traditional Meets Modern.’ nutritional beverage comprises of natural and traditional ingredients from the east coupled with botanical ingredients from the west and perfected by technology, that can help boost your immune system.
To celebrate the launch of this product and provide an educational session for our ABOs, two expert speakers were invited to share their insights during the eRally which took place on 5 Feb 2021 via Nutrilite Malaysia’s Facebook page.
Explaining that traditional and herbal ingredients coupled with key science findings was key to elevating one’s health was Traditional Chinese Medicine expert CmDr Iko Chin.
Dr Chin said Chinese, Indian and Malay communities have long used traditional herbs in both their meals and medicine. For example, petai is commonly eaten with sambal and rice, but it also contains vitamin C and antioxidant properties great for building immunity.
Other common cooking ingredients are licorice and turmeric. Used heavily in Malaysian cuisine, both are packed with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial properties. Licorice root contains glycyrrhizic (pronounced as gliser-rizic) acid, which is traditionally consumed for better respiratory health, decreasing coughs and increasing the chemicals in our body to heal ulcers.
Meanwhile, turmeric has curcumin and is widely used to treat symptoms such as sneezing, itching, runny nose, congestion and improve respiratory health, he added.
Weighing in after Dr Chin was Amway China’s Nutrition Investigation Senior Scientist, Dr Junot Kan. Explaining that plenty of research and investigation was conducted on this Nutrilite beverage, Dr Junot stressed that the product’s efficacy didn’t just lie within its active ingredients, but also from how the ingredients were meticulously sourced.
“The acerola cherries in this drink are harvested green due to its peak vitamin C content. This shows that we choose only the best and trusted ingredients for maximum health benefits.”
