On December 9, 2019, Herbalife Nutrition, a premier global nutrition company, launched its 12th Asia-Pacific Wellness Tour to encourage healthy, active living among consumers with a focus on healthy ageing. Featuring a series of talks, training sessions, and webinars, 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 ageing journeys.
According to the Asia-Pacific Risk Center, the Asia-Pacific is the fastest-ageing region in the world with over 200 million people expected to move into the ranks of the elderly (aged 65 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 per cent 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 ageing populations bringing unprecedented socio-economic challenges, Herbalife Nutrition recognised the need for Asia-Pacific consumers to start taking urgent steps towards healthy ageing. Based on findings from the Herbalife Nutrition 2018 Asia-Pacific Healthy Ageing Survey, 92 per cent of respondents in the Asia-Pacific believe that active steps can be taken to help them age healthily. Among this group, 81 per cent believe they can age healthily by making better nutrition choices, and 75 per cent said this can be achieved through regular physical activity.
"While growing older is inevitable, the increased discomfort that comes with ageing 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 ageing 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 ageing 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 the 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 personalised nutrition to help consumers age healthily for the long term.
