AGE is just a number, how young you feel is entirely up to you! And with a little BOOST of wellness, how ever great those numbers are, it won’t really matter much.

While it’s true that ageing has inevitable effects on our corporeal forms both inside and outside – some people age 50 and above still enjoys the active level of functioning of 30 year-old individuals. This is often attributed to both a positive outlook in life and a healthy lifestyle.

The common perception about old people having “lots of time and money but lacks the energy to do what they want in life” may not be absolutely true in this day and age. More and more mature individuals today are enjoying the same lifestyle privileges of young millennials (but with more spending power).

We are at an era where HEALTH and WELLNESS are of equal importance (and may be even greater) than MATERIAL WEALTH. People today are living longer and more fruitful lives because of the advancement in medicine and nutrition.

With that said, the Philippines is now privileged to become one of the first few countries in the world to have BOOST, an advance nutritional powdered supplement drink from Nestle Health Science specially formulated for adults 50 and up to address their nutritional needs as they age in order to get the most out of life – to live up and be their best.

The launch was held a week ago at One Canvas Events Place hosted by the ever-charming and still very much active 50-year old Christine Jacob Sandejas.

To formally introduce the three new variants of Nestle Boost in the Philippines are Mr. Paul Bruhn, Regional Head of Nestle Health Science AOA and Ms. Tricia Turcuato, Consumer Marketing Manager of Nestle Health Science in the Philippines.

“We believe we have the responsibility to provide nutritional therapies that change the way we approach health, and ultimately help create a better quality of life for our consumers”, says Paul Bruhn, Regional Head of Nestle Health Science AOA. “We recognize the increase in ageing consumers who now live longer, and we aim to empower them to take action to manage the age-related changes they experience and help them stay healthy”, he added.

Making a statement for the 50 and up Filipinos during the event are singer Zsa Zsa Padilla, celebrity host Tessa Prieto-Valdes, body-builder Ruby Gan, musician-businessman Ramon ‘RJ’ Jacinto and sports analyst Quinito Henson.

“50 is the new 40”

Research shows that special nutrition may help to manage the normal changes our bodies go through during life. It is important to consider that nutritional needs tend to evolve with time and gradual changes in lifestyle, dietary habits, and metabolism often develop. That is why Nestle Health Science developed the Boost range. It takes into consideration what nutrition may be lacking in the diets of adults 50 and up, and these oral nutritional supplements can positively impact their nutritional intake to help them stay healthy and active.

Nestle Boost is available in three variants, namely:

Boost Optimum, a nutritional formula specifically designed with high quality proteins, a blend of Inulin and FOS which are prebiotics (dietary fiber), probiotics (lactobacillus paracasei), vitamins B6, B12, E and other vitamins and minerals. A Nutri-Ulta formula for immunity, digestive health and muscle integrity.

Boost Mobilis contains 24 vitamins and minerals with a high content of vitamin D, C and calcium. A Nutri-Move formula for joints, bones and muscles.

Boost Energis on the other hand has a Nutri-Active formula that ensures vitality, energy and strength with a proprietary blend of 20 vitamins and minerals high in calcium, vitamin B12, B6, B12, potassium and magnesium.

Nestle Health Science said that it is recommended to drink Boost 1-2 times a day, as part of a balanced diet.

Another great thing about Boost is that you can use it as a main ingredient many wonderful healthy drink and snack preparations.

Nestle Boost is available in Mercury Drug Stores: Optimum 800g (1,560 Pesos) and 400g (797 Pesos), Energis 480g (595 Pesos), and Mobilis 405g (595 Pesos). For the convenience of having your products delivered right at your doorstep, you may also contact
