Malaysians can now power up their hearts with Nestlé Omega Plus® Milk with Oats; the first-in-market combined action of two naturally-derived cholesterol-lowering ingredients, Acticol ® and Beta-glucan launched by Malaysia’s heart health advocator, Nestlé Omega Plus®.

Only Nestlé Omega Plus® Milk with Oats has Acticol® which is naturally derived from plant sterols, that have been scientifically proven to block cholesterol from entering the bloodstream. It works simultaneously with Beta-glucan from oats that binds with cholesterol in the gut and removes it from the body.

This dual-action of blocking and removing cholesterol, or “The Power of Two”, helps Malaysians manage cholesterol levels more effectively, compared to the consumption of oats alone1.

Preventative heart care is not a top-of-mind consideration for most Malaysian adults, as heart disease is usually perceived as an illness that affects the elderly2. However, research has proven otherwise, showing that Malaysians in their thirties have arteries akin to those in their seventies due to their lifestyles3.

The conclusion: Malaysians are succumbing to heart disease at a younger age. Nevertheless, this need not be the case.  Nestlé Omega Plus® Milk with Oats now provides Malaysians with a consistent and pro-active solution to power up a holistic heart health management routine.

“With a fast-paced lifestyle and a strong food culture, more and more Malaysians are developing unhealthy habits which ultimately lead to cardiovascular issues,” said Ng Su Yen, Business Executive Manager, Milks of Nestlé Malaysia, speaking at the launch event held at One World Hotel in Bandar Utama today.

“Small lifestyle changes such as getting regular exercise and eating a heart-healthy diet complimented by two servings of delicious Nestlé Omega Plus® Milk with Oats a day can improve the quality of life for those at risk. With this new product, we want to help Malaysians make effortless adjustments to their everyday routines for better overall health. As an advocate of heart health, we want to empower Malaysians to take consistent and pro-active steps to ensure a wholesome and worry-free long life,” she added.

Nestlé Omega Plus® Milk with Oats comes in convenient single serve sachets - consuming the recommended two servings per day becomes effortless as you can slip the sachets into your work or gym bag and have it anytime of the day. Simply add 200ml of hot water and stir and you are ready to go with the power of two cholesterol reducing ingredients to enable you to live life to the fullest!

Nestlé Omega Plus® Milk with Oats is available from May 2016 at all hypermarkets and supermarkets for RM 19.98 (10 sachets x 42g in one pouch). Head over to your nearest AEON, AEON BIG, GIANT, TESCO, ECONSAVE and MYDIN outlets to kick start your heart health today.
