Amway Launches A Nationwide Weight-loss Programme that Emphasises Gut Health to Combat Non-Communicable Diseases

Mr Michael Jonathan Duong, AMWAY Malaysia’s Managing Director

‘BIG HEALTH’ and Sustainable Entrepreneurship as 2 Key Thrusts for the Group in 2023
By launching the “Gut Reset-Weight Management” educational and awareness campaign across the country, Amway (Malaysia) Holdings Berhad (“AMWAY Malaysia”) is dedicated to further bolstering its efforts to combat non-communicable diseases (NCDs), with a particular focus on weight management.

This is consistent with AMWAY Malaysia’s efforts to assist the country’s emphasis on preventative healthcare, since the rising incidence of NCDs is putting more burden on the country’s health system and costing more than RM9.65 billion annually in healthcare.

Common Diseases Among Malaysians
Alarming data show that obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other health issues are becoming more common among Malaysians. A projected 1.7 million Malaysians have three significant risk factors for cardiovascular disease, while 3.4 million have two major risk factors, according to the National Health and Morbidity Survey (NHMS) 2019 data. The NHMS also discovered that over half of adult Malaysians are either overweight or obese, one in five have diabetes, one in three have hypertension, and two in five have high cholesterol.

“In response to our government’s strategy to support the fight against non-communicable diseases, AMWAY, as a leading health and wellness company, recognizes the critical role of the private sector in addressing our national health concerns. With this in mind, AMWAY Malaysia is stepping up efforts to provide healthier lifestyle products and solutions through the “Gut Reset-Weight Management” educational and awareness campaign, with the aim of encouraging Malaysians to adopt a healthy lifestyle to avoid the risks of non-communicable diseases.”

quoted Mr Michael Jonathan Duong, Managing Director Of AMWAY Malaysia

Gut Reset-Weight Management with Nutrilite™
Nutrilite™, the flagship brand of AMWAY, provides a variety of dietary and nutritional supplements that enhance general wellbeing. A healthy gut is the main emphasis of the “Gut Reset-Weight Management” campaign since it is a necessary prerequisite for long-term healthy weight. A customised programme for managing nutritional and weight needs will be part of the campaign and include a balanced diet, supplements, exercise, and a change in overall lifestyle.

The program’s objective is to provide the daily nutrients and fibre one needs for effective weight management. Moreover, the programme provides a personal health assessment thanks to a special alliance with Innoquest Pathology, a renowned diagnostic business in Malaysia for more than 30 years. This year, AMWAY Malaysia achieved a significant milestone with the introduction of the “Gut Reset-Weight Management” campaign, further solidifying Nutrilite™’s position in the worldwide market after nearly 90 years.

“BIG HEALTH” Campaign Aims to Combat NCDs
One of AMWAY Malaysia’s primary goals for its “BIG HEALTH” campaign, which consists of 6 Pillars of Emphasis until 2023, is to combat NCDs. Moreover, AMWAY Malaysia will continue to provide product solutions that are integrated with technology and depend on reliable research to encourage a healthy lifestyle for Malaysians as customers’ attention turns more and more to health and wellness.

Sustainable Entrepreneurship to Help ABOs
Building a more sustainable entrepreneurial model to help Amway Business Owners (ABOs), who will fuel the Group’s business development, is AMWAY Malaysia’s second priority for 2023.

“One of the most important aspects of our business is to sustain and grow our AMWAY entrepreneurs. We strive to support our Amway Business Owners in their entrepreneurial journey towards generating sustainable income and creating value through mutually beneficial partnerships by helping them discover their full potential and achieve their goals. With over 400,000 ABOs within our network, we continuously focus on ABO-centric programmes and incentives, as we journey together towards AMWAY Malaysia’s 50th anniversary vision to be one of the leading health and wellness companies in Malaysia by 2026,”

quoted Mr Michael Jonathan Duong, Managing Director Of AMWAY Malaysia

New Record Set in FY2022
In the fiscal year that concluded on December 31, 2022 (FY2022), AMWAY Malaysia reported new record revenue of RM1,514.8 million, an increase of 1.9% from RM1,485.9 million in the prior fiscal year. Sales increased mostly as a result of the Lead with Nutrition initiative’s high demand for personal care and health items. In contrast, its net profit soared by a stunning 109% to RM76.88 million from RM36.78 million in FY2021.

Duong concluded that AMWAY Malaysia has never been stronger, and they are certainly looking forward to building a profitable, sustainable future.
