Nestlé reports that a concerning four out of ten Malaysian adults have high cholesterol levels, with nearly half of them being under the age of 40. What’s even more alarming is that only a quarter of these individuals are aware of their high cholesterol levels. This poses a significant health risk, as high cholesterol is a major contributor to heart disease.
This year, Nestlé Omega Plus has teamed up with BookDoc to launch the 30-Day Challenge as part of Nestlé’s efforts to promote heart health awareness in Malaysia. The challenge encourages Malaysians to adopt healthier lifestyles, focusing on a balanced diet and regular exercise. Nestlé Omega Plus contains ActiCol plant sterols that scientifically proven to lower cholesterol and aims to reduce the risk of heart disease with two servings a day. Kenny Wong, Business Executive Officer at Nestlé Malaysia, hopes that the 30-Day Challenge will motivate more Malaysians to prioritise their heart health.
