Nutritional boost in a sachet: Power through life’s demands with these ready-to-drink supplements

VitaHealth’s VLife series contains essential nutrients aimed at boosting energy levels and immunity, and reducing stress levels.

According to a study conducted by the Institute of Policy Studies, young adults in their 20s and middle-aged individuals in their 40s have experienced a decline in mental health over the course of the pandemic. Even as life gradually returns to a state of normalcy, persistent stressors such as the rising costs of living and ongoing uncertainty about the future continue to contribute to feelings of anxiety and distress.

The adverse effects of prolonged stress on our health and well-being are widely acknowledged. VLife B-Calm is a wellness product that is designed to help relax one’s physiological and emotional state, with targeted benefits that include alleviating anxiety, enhancing focus, stabilising mood swings and reducing stress levels. 

“Formulated using a patented banana peel extract, VLife B-Calm aims to support serotonin levels in the brain,” said Ms Beh. Serotonin, often dubbed the “happy hormone”, plays a key role in boosting mood, managing stress and improving sleep quality. 

VLife B-Calm also contains L-theanine (green tea extract), chamomile extract and gamma-aminobutyric acid (bran ferment). 

L-theanine, an amino acid found in green tea, may relieve anxiety and improve mood, attention and memory, according to a study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food. Meanwhile, chamomile, which is rich in the antioxidant apigenin, is recognised for its sedative properties, suggests a study published in the Journal of Education and Health Promotion. Gamma-aminobutyric acid has also been found to enhance sleep quality, as seen in research published in the Journal of Clinical Neurology.  

Those with pre-existing liver conditions may wish to consult their doctors before taking B-Calm due to the green tea extract in its formula.

SUPPORTING YOUR IMMUNITY

To boost the body’s natural defence and respiratory functions, Ms Beh recommends VLife Imunee, which contains elderberry ferment extract, Japanese honeysuckle (jin yin hua) as well as extracts of sea buckthorn (sha ji) and monk fruit (luo han guo). 

According to a study in the journal Food Chemistry: X, elderberries contain beneficial compounds such as polyphenols and anthocyanin that are known for their antioxidant properties. The patented elderberry ferment extract in Imunee contains these compounds and helps activate a healthy immune response by increasing cytokine production. Cytokines are proteins that aid in controlling inflammation in the body. 

In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), ingredients such as Japanese honeysuckle, sea buckthorn and monk fruit are often used to support healthy upper respiratory functions, said Ms Beh. She added: “Sea buckthorn is a common remedy in TCM to relieve phlegm and coughs, while monk fruit is traditionally used to nourish the lungs and throat.”

A NATURAL ENERGY BOOST

Whether you’re a student, working professional or busy parent, having sufficient energy to tackle daily tasks is crucial. VLife Powerr is designed to alleviate fatigue and promote sustained energy, leaving you mentally and physically rejuvenated.  

It incorporates a patented ginseng cordyceps complex ferment, along with four other stamina-boosting ingredients: Taurine to increase physical endurance, damiana leaf extract to improve blood circulation as well as Vitamin B complex and zinc to support metabolism. 

“VitaHealth’s patented ginseng cordyceps complex is produced using a three-stage fermentation process that increases its saponin content (one of the active ingredients in ginseng) by more than 600 per cent,” shared Ms Beh. 

Ginseng has long been associated with numerous health benefits, including improved memory function and blood circulation. Studies also suggest that it can help ease fatigue and increase energy levels. 

YOUR WELLNESS COMPANION 

The VLife series is conveniently available in a liquid sachet format, allowing for easy consumption at any time and place. Users may take it once or twice daily after meals.

While capsule and tablet supplements remain the go-to among consumers, liquid supplements in ready-to-drink formats have become increasingly popular since the onset of the pandemic, according to market research from Euromonitor International. Ms Beh highlighted that the individual packaging of the VLife series not only offers convenience but also improves hygiene.

She added that the VLife series uses a patented DoubleNutri liposomal technology that allows for better nutrient absorption, particularly for those with a sensitive digestive system. This micro-emulsification technology combines water- and oil-soluble nutrients with natural plant extracts and functional ingredients to form ultra-fine particles. This increases the bioavailability – the extent in which a substance can be absorbed and used by the body – by more than two times, according to Ms Beh.

“In essence, this technology helps to enhance nutrient absorption, so that our body is able to function optimally”, she explained.
