Leadership by example on changing the Malaysian diet: http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2012/6/12/nation/11458488&sec=nation As Malaysians become health conscious, there is a need to improvise food that are not healthy and make them healthy or healthier. Hopefully more educated folks will experiment with popular local dishes and make them even more delightful.

Chinese New Year is around the corner and if you are thinking about getting good gifts to bring home for parents, relatives or friends, or just to show your appreciation to clients, why not consider the following instead of the usual unhealthy cookies and canned food.
Instead of ginseng, why not give a Nobel Prize product - Herbalife NW Formula (Niteworks). It helps with blood circulation and boosts cardiovascular health. It contains a proprietary blend of L-Arginine and L-Citrulline that help produce nitric oxide in the body and in turn, promote overall health and energy.
The NW Formula comes in powder form and is mixed into a glass of water and consumed before one goes to sleep. For the elderly, it seems to reduce aches and pains. This is one product that has to be experienced to know the difference.
With the current controversy over Birds’ Nest, why not purchase Herbalife Formula 1 - beverage of the 21st Century, which has a lot more nutrients than Birds’ Nest. The nutrient-packed delicious shake helps meet the demanding needs of fast paced and stress filled modern day living for the young and active as well as the aged. It is fantastic for our elderly parents or relatives who may not be getting enough nutrients, who are weak or eat too little to be getting enough nutrients.
We may not be aware that our bodies experience much stress daily from multiple sources - pollution in the air, water and food. Our food may be filled with preservatives, additives, colouring, artificial seasoning, bad oil from fried food, excessive salt and sugar and animal fats.
The kidney and liver go through much stress when we consume alcohol excessively, while our lungs and stomachs take a heavy toll from tobacco.
Our bodies also go through more stress than usual when we suffer from medical conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, migrane, arthritis, allergies, infection, etc.
For these reasons, we need to consume adequate nutrients to enable us to have optimal health. Most Malaysians eat adequately only for survival but not enough for good health. How many of us consume 5 servings of fresh fruits/vegetables a day? I don’t know of any Malaysian who does that regularly. Moreover, our food, although delicious, are high in carbs and lacking in healthy protein.
The other must-have for this hot season is the Aloe Herbal Concentrate. You only need to mix 2 to 3 capfuls of the concentrate into a glass of water for a refreshing beverage that helps reduce heatiness, relieves stomach indigestion, gastric, constipation as well as diarrhea. The drink is full of enzymes that are good for the gut while it cleans the villi to enable better nutrient absorption.
The Herbalife teamix (Lemon & Hibiscus or Peach) is high in anti-oxidants and makes a nice tea drink for guests. It’s a healthier option than serving soft drinks. It is a mild detox, so you won’t feel much difference unless you have consumed too much fat.
The Omega 3 Fish Oil is useful for those with high cholesterol, arthritis or joint problems and those susceptible to infection.
Please let us know if you need any of these, even if you are living in another country.
Herbalife is the number one human nutrition company in the world and is available in 80 countries. It is listed also in the New York Stock Exchange.
