LOS ANGELES

Herbalife (NYSE: HLF), a leading global nutrition company, is launching its second Asia-Pacific Wellness Tour in October, which will see six of its Herbalife Nutrition Advisory Board (NAB) members and experts visit a total of 25 cities in the region: Australia, Cambodia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

Building on the success of the inaugural Asia-Pacific Wellness Tour held earlier this year, which saw more than 20,000 in attendance, the October edition of the tour seeks to further amplify public awareness of the importance of balanced nutrition and healthy lifestyles in an increasingly time-strapped world.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 1.4 billion adults are overweight and at least 2.8 million adults die each year as a result of being overweight or obese – which is linked to several chronic lifestyle illnesses including diabetes and heart disease. In addition, populations are aging in every country, making it vital for people to adopt good nutrition and fitness habits early in life in order to remain healthy and independent well into old age.

“Herbalife nutrition products directly address the growing trends of rising obesity rates, an aging population and increasing consumer awareness of the need for a healthy lifestyle. Through our wellness tour in Asia Pacific, we aim to highlight the impact of these issues on public health, and through our nutrition experts, share practical, balanced nutrition tips and positive lifestyle habits to help people live healthier lives,” said Michael O. Johnson, chairman and chief executive officer, Herbalife.

A key highlight of the wellness tour is a series of public health seminars presented by the Herbalife NAB members. At the seminars, the NAB members will address key health and nutrition topics including current health trends, the importance of understanding the human body, and how to ensure good nutrition. The seminars are open to the general public, as well as to Independent Herbalife Members.

An exciting first for this wellness tour is a series of medical symposia to be held in Korea, India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Taiwan. The medical symposia will look at the core issues facing public health and provide a forum for industry professionals and healthcare experts to discuss the importance of balanced nutrition and healthy active lifestyles to our overall well-being.
