HONG KONG, Oct. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Herbalife Nutrition, a premier global nutrition company, today launched its 12th Asia Pacific Wellness Tour to encourage healthy, active living among consumers, with a focus on healthy aging. Featuring a series of talks, training sessions and webinars in 15 cities across Australia, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Macau, the Philippines, Taiwan and Thailand, the latest Herbalife Nutrition Asia Pacific Wellness Tour aims to equip consumers with practical nutrition knowledge and positive lifestyle habits to help kickstart their healthy aging journeys.
According to the Asia Pacific Risk Center, Asia Pacific is the fastest aging region in the world with over 200 million people expected to move into the ranks of the elderly (aged 65 years and above) between 2016 and 2030. In addition, the United Nations World Population Age Report 2017 estimated that by 2050, older persons aged 60 and above will make up 24 percent of the population in Asia, outnumbering adolescents and youths between the ages of 10 to 24 by 2.1 billion to 2.0 billion.
With rapidly aging populations bringing unprecedented socio-economic challenges, Herbalife Nutrition recognized the need for Asia Pacific consumers to start taking urgent steps towards healthy aging. Based on findings from the Herbalife Nutrition 2018 Asia Pacific Healthy Aging Survey, 92 percent of respondents in Asia Pacific believe that active steps can be taken to help them age healthily. Among this group, 81 percent believe they can age healthily by making better nutrition choices, and 75 percent said this can be achieved through regular physical activity.
"While growing older is inevitable, the increased discomfort that comes with aging is not. With advancements in science and nutrition, we hope to help consumers understand that reductions in bodily functions and mobility as a result of aging can be delayed by making positive lifestyle changes earlier on in life. This latest Asia Pacific Wellness Tour not only brings some of our best nutrition experts to the region, it also provides an empowering platform for them to share best practices in nutrition and lifestyle habits with consumers, to support their healthy aging journeys," said Stephen Conchie, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Asia Pacific, Herbalife Nutrition.
During the Tour, Herbalife Nutrition experts and members of the Herbalife Nutrition Advisory Board (NAB) will share healthy living habits with consumers across Asia Pacific. With a focus on fostering digestive health, heart health, bone health, joint health and brain health through making simple nutrition and lifestyle changes, the experts will be sharing principles on cellular science and personalized nutrition to help consumers age healthily for the long term.
