AmLife Promotes “Regenerative Sleep – The Secrets of Agelessness” in Conjunction of World Sleep Day 2023

From left: Dr. Lim, Mr. Lew and Dr. Ariel

AmLife International Sdn. Bhd. relaunched its World Sleep Day (WSD) campaign on 6th March 2023 at the Berjaya Times Square Hotel, where it presented its regional sleep health showcase to the media.

Life during the post-covid period takes on new meaning and challenges, particularly in terms of one’s sleep quality. According to the National Library of Medical & Biotech Information, COVID-19 has both short and long-term side effects. 40% of people reported having difficulties sleeping during the pandemic, and 31% of people reported having disrupted sleep after COVID.

According to a report from Asian Journal of Medicine and Health Sciences, 9 out of 10 Malaysians experience some level of insomnia and have one or more types of sleeping problems. 35% of Malaysians have some sort of sleeping disorders with more than 53% of Malaysia’s workforce sleeps less than the recommended minimum of 7 hours each night, while at least 51% of Malaysians suffer from work-related stress.

Meanwhile, a combined cross sectional online health & work survey done by Centre for Community Health Services, Faculty of Health Science and some of our main local universities such as UKM & UM found that in 2021, 54% out of 11,356 working adults are getting insufficient sleep. Some of the factors linked to sleep duration of fewer than 7 hours each night included having kids, lifestyle factors, poor sleeping conditions, and mental health issues.

Product demo with guests

In keeping with its tagline, “Life, Redefined,” AmLife initiated the WSD movement, which aims to help Malaysians get better sleep, improve their health, and enjoy life to the fullest. The World Sleep Day sleep health showcase, with the theme “Sleep is Essential for Health,” is being organised by AmLife for the 8th year with long-time collaborator World Sleep Society and three-year partner, Taiwan Sleep Care Association (TSCA). This regional initiative on sleep education covers Malaysia, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Mr. Lew with World Sleep Day ambassador, Hui Mei

This year’s World Sleep Day ambassador for AmLife is celebrity and TV host, Hui Mei.

Mr. Lew Mun Yee, the Founder & President of AmLife, asserts that the importance of sleep education is becoming increasingly important as sleep disorders may lead to a number of chronic conditions, such as Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, obesity, depression and immunity-related illnesses.

Mr. Lew Mun Yee

“Over time, lack of good sleep can lead to degenerative diseases. Scientific studies pointed out that sleep is the best way to boost your immune system and reduce your risk from virus infection! Sleep and aging are inter-connected as sleep disorders impact the body and immunity and overall functions and immunity, and accelerates aging,” 

said Mr. Lew Mun Yee, the Founder & President of AmLife.

Therefore AmLife also expounded on “The Secrets of Agelessness” today through regenerative sleep. According to news reports, Malaysia will become a country of the elderly by 2030, which indicates that in only eight years, the population of those aged 60 and above would reach 15.3%, or one in every six people.

The nation’s health care industry and our society as a whole are significantly threatened by the aging of the Malaysian population. Alzheimer’s disease is a serious health problem in the elderly country. There are 7 million people with Alzheimer’s disease in Japan alone, and there are about 50 million people with Alzheimer’s disease globally.

At the media event, a number of sleep experts shared their insights. Facts relating to age-related regeneration and anti-aging were shared by Dr. Ariel B. Neikrug, PhD, Health Clinical Psychologist and Sleep Medicine Specialist and a Registered Assistant Clinical Professor, Psychiatry & Human Behavior, School of Medicine, University of California, Irvine. On top of that, he also discussed about mental health issues affecting people post covid.

Dr. Ariel B. Neikrug, PhD.

“Sleep plays an important and vital role in the process of aging, our mental health and general well-being. Primarily sleep is involved in the regeneration and repair processes of our bodies and brains,”

said Dr. Ariel B. Neikrug, PhD.

Dr. Lim Geng Yan, Aged Care Entrepreneur, Innovator and Doctor of Medicine, spoke about stem cell treatment and how it might enhance immune levels by preventing cell degradation.

Dr. Lim Geng Yan

“While current covid treatment strategies cannot help damaged organ cells to regenerate, many medical studies shows that mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) has the ability to regenerate damaged organ due to covid and that MSC can potentially help to reverse long covid side effects,”

shared Dr. Lim Geng Yan.

Food and exercise are key in promoting better sleep. Mr. KS Chan, a certified Nutritionist, and Dr. Choo Hao Jian, a doctor who specialises in geriatrics and regenerative medicine, discussed how to achieve quality sleep by following a healthy dietary nutrition and home care activities to help ease the body and mind into restful sleep, respectively.

“Quality sleep can be achieved by practicing circadian cycle, where we train our body to get used to a routine that regulates the sleep-wake cycle. A way to practice this is to turn off the lights when we get home after work, and to put down every electronic device so our body will automatically know that it is time to wind down,”

said Dr. Choo Hao Jian.

“One way to improve our diet is to increase the intake of fruits and vegetables, and at the same time consume more lean meat. People should also avoid processed food at all costs,”

said KS Chan.

The “Sleep Better with AmLife” CSR campaign, which aims to capture Malaysians’ most common sleeping problems, was introduced during the event by AmLife. Many lifestyle influencers will invite “sleep stories” from their readers, and winning submissions will be eligible for an epigenetic test and professional medical consultation.

AmLife DeepZleep – AmSonic

AmLife also unveiled its cutting-edge AmLife DeepZleep – AmSonic during the event, a unique regenerative sleep technology from Japan. Electric Potential Therapy, AmSonic Frequency Therapy, and Thermal Therapy are the three types of revolutionary therapy concepts offered by this device. This combination of therapies provide the world’s first regenerative sleep for all-rounded physical and spiritual wellbeing which allow you to recharge your health while you sleep.

Product introduction

Through its electric potential therapy technology from Japan, AmLife has been educating and helping individuals for the past 20 years to improve their health and quality of sleep. The company established a foothold in the sleep industry and is now making headways into regenerative medicine through stem cell therapy.

“This breakthrough treatment helps more people to delay aging and reduces diseases to enable all to enjoy a quality life. With stem cell therapy, one can grow older but still remain strong as the human body is  fundamentally made up of cells; hence the consistent regeneration of new cells help with the anti-aging process,”

said Mr Lew Mun Yee.

AmLife’s latest endeavour – its newly-opened AlphaCelle, is touted as the first clinic to integrate stem cells, high electric potential, and exosomes for a comprehensive regenerative treatment to help more people delay aging, reduce diseases, and live a good quality life in old age.

“Our mission is to popularize stem cell therapy for all and allowing more and more people to have stem cell therapy and move towards a new and happy life,“

enthused Mr Lew Mun Yee.

Congratulations to AmLife for winning the World Sleep Day 2022 – Distinguished Activity Award at the World Sleep Congress to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in October 20 – 25, 2023!

Amway Launches A Nationwide Weight-loss Programme that Emphasises Gut Health to Combat Non-Communicable Diseases

Mr Michael Jonathan Duong, AMWAY Malaysia’s Managing Director

‘BIG HEALTH’ and Sustainable Entrepreneurship as 2 Key Thrusts for the Group in 2023
By launching the “Gut Reset-Weight Management” educational and awareness campaign across the country, Amway (Malaysia) Holdings Berhad (“AMWAY Malaysia”) is dedicated to further bolstering its efforts to combat non-communicable diseases (NCDs), with a particular focus on weight management.

This is consistent with AMWAY Malaysia’s efforts to assist the country’s emphasis on preventative healthcare, since the rising incidence of NCDs is putting more burden on the country’s health system and costing more than RM9.65 billion annually in healthcare.

Common Diseases Among Malaysians
Alarming data show that obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other health issues are becoming more common among Malaysians. A projected 1.7 million Malaysians have three significant risk factors for cardiovascular disease, while 3.4 million have two major risk factors, according to the National Health and Morbidity Survey (NHMS) 2019 data. The NHMS also discovered that over half of adult Malaysians are either overweight or obese, one in five have diabetes, one in three have hypertension, and two in five have high cholesterol.

“In response to our government’s strategy to support the fight against non-communicable diseases, AMWAY, as a leading health and wellness company, recognizes the critical role of the private sector in addressing our national health concerns. With this in mind, AMWAY Malaysia is stepping up efforts to provide healthier lifestyle products and solutions through the “Gut Reset-Weight Management” educational and awareness campaign, with the aim of encouraging Malaysians to adopt a healthy lifestyle to avoid the risks of non-communicable diseases.”

quoted Mr Michael Jonathan Duong, Managing Director Of AMWAY Malaysia

Gut Reset-Weight Management with Nutrilite™
Nutrilite™, the flagship brand of AMWAY, provides a variety of dietary and nutritional supplements that enhance general wellbeing. A healthy gut is the main emphasis of the “Gut Reset-Weight Management” campaign since it is a necessary prerequisite for long-term healthy weight. A customised programme for managing nutritional and weight needs will be part of the campaign and include a balanced diet, supplements, exercise, and a change in overall lifestyle.

The program’s objective is to provide the daily nutrients and fibre one needs for effective weight management. Moreover, the programme provides a personal health assessment thanks to a special alliance with Innoquest Pathology, a renowned diagnostic business in Malaysia for more than 30 years. This year, AMWAY Malaysia achieved a significant milestone with the introduction of the “Gut Reset-Weight Management” campaign, further solidifying Nutrilite™’s position in the worldwide market after nearly 90 years.

“BIG HEALTH” Campaign Aims to Combat NCDs
One of AMWAY Malaysia’s primary goals for its “BIG HEALTH” campaign, which consists of 6 Pillars of Emphasis until 2023, is to combat NCDs. Moreover, AMWAY Malaysia will continue to provide product solutions that are integrated with technology and depend on reliable research to encourage a healthy lifestyle for Malaysians as customers’ attention turns more and more to health and wellness.

Sustainable Entrepreneurship to Help ABOs
Building a more sustainable entrepreneurial model to help Amway Business Owners (ABOs), who will fuel the Group’s business development, is AMWAY Malaysia’s second priority for 2023.

“One of the most important aspects of our business is to sustain and grow our AMWAY entrepreneurs. We strive to support our Amway Business Owners in their entrepreneurial journey towards generating sustainable income and creating value through mutually beneficial partnerships by helping them discover their full potential and achieve their goals. With over 400,000 ABOs within our network, we continuously focus on ABO-centric programmes and incentives, as we journey together towards AMWAY Malaysia’s 50th anniversary vision to be one of the leading health and wellness companies in Malaysia by 2026,”

quoted Mr Michael Jonathan Duong, Managing Director Of AMWAY Malaysia

New Record Set in FY2022
In the fiscal year that concluded on December 31, 2022 (FY2022), AMWAY Malaysia reported new record revenue of RM1,514.8 million, an increase of 1.9% from RM1,485.9 million in the prior fiscal year. Sales increased mostly as a result of the Lead with Nutrition initiative’s high demand for personal care and health items. In contrast, its net profit soared by a stunning 109% to RM76.88 million from RM36.78 million in FY2021.

Duong concluded that AMWAY Malaysia has never been stronger, and they are certainly looking forward to building a profitable, sustainable future.
