“Studies have shown that in order to maintain overall health, we cannot ignore the balance of good and bad bacteria in our gut microbiota, ” Carol said.
“To-date, Vitagen is the only brand of cultured milk drink in Malaysia that is clinically proven for a better gut based on local landmark research conducted by Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Medical Centre.
“Each bottle of Vitagen contains billions of live probiotic cultures of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus paracasei, recognised by experts in the field to have a positive effect on digestive health and immune system.”
In its efforts to educate Malaysians on gut health, Vitagen launched its Good Gut Health Awareness campaign in collaboration with Digestive Health Malaysia and Nutrition Society of Malaysia in 2016.
The campaign continues to advocate the importance of good gut health and its significance to one’s overall well-being via different on-ground activities.
“Vitagen is a household brand that has been a guardian to Malaysians’ gut health for over 40 years, ” Carol highlighted.
She said the company was supporting the event as part of its corporate social responsibility and give back to society.
