We may remember to take care of our hair, skin and any part of us that is visible to others but what about our very important gut? Bearing gut health in mind, Vitagen has taken the initiative to share its expertise and knowledge directly with Malaysians with its new Digestive Health On-Wheels education initiative.
The Digestive Health On-Wheels education initiative features a truck fitted out with educational information on probiotics – Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus paracasei – which are the ‘good bacteria’ that provide us with various digestive health benefits when consumed in sufficient amounts.
It will also be accompanied by gastroenterology nurses and nutritionists to provide members of the public with an analysis of their gut health and advice on how to improve it.
At the 30 locations it will go, the public will be able to get their digestive health screenings from nutritionists, receive counselling and stool-test kits from gastroenterology nurses and learn how to stay fit by a fitness consultant.
The truck will also showcase the findings of the Pusat Perubatan Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (PPUKM) study as well as have interactive digestive health games, product sampling and products for sale on promotion.
