Abbott on September 27 launched a new and improved Ensure Gold in the market of Viet Nam, which features a dual action formula to support adults’ strength and immunity.

The latest innovation offers complete and balanced nutrition, and contains both beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate (HMB) and yeast beta-glucan (YBG) to support muscle and immune health, helping adults stay strong and active as they age.

''Good nutrition is essential to health and wellness, and it’s one of the most important factors for healthy ageing,'' said Douglas Kuo, divisional vice president and general manager of Abbott’s nutrition business in Viet Nam, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar.

Malnutrition in older adults is a prevalent yet commonly overlooked issue. Studies show that nearly one in three elderly adults is malnourished or at risk of malnourishment. In Việt Nam, almost half of hospitalised elderly are malnourished. According to healthcare experts, regular nutritional and physical interventions are a practical, cost-effective approach to improving immune function, fighting inflammation, and slowing down ageing. — VNS
