Poll reveals that Filipinos are now more concerned about healthy lifestyle

Herbalife Health Poll reveals that 9 in 10 Filipinos ”highly concerned” about the potential diseases that an unhealthy lifestyle can cause

There is a growing trend towards a healthy lifestyle among Filipinos as revealed by the recent survey of Herbalife.  Also, a growing number of them believes that simple lifestyle changes can help improve their overall well-being.

Herbalife is a 35-year-old global nutrition company that sells weight-management, nutrition and personal care products intended to support a healthy lifestyle. Herbalife products are sold in more than 90 countries to and through a network of independent members. 

A good number of the respondents expressed willingness to adopt a healthy lifestyle; 79 percent said that they would cut down on unhealthy foods, 78 percent expressed their willingness to exercise more regularly, and 72 percent said they would make better nutrition choices. 



“We welcome the results of the survey. It gives an understanding of Filipinos becoming even more health concious and self-aware that they need to make some lifestyle changes to improve their overall well-being. It also gives Herbalife an idea where we are needed, because as the survey revealed only four out of 10 would spend 10 to 30 minutes a day to make simple lifestyle changes,” said Rosalio Valenzuela, Herbalife Philippines General Manager.

However, living a healthy lifestyle is not that easy.  According to the same survey there are key obstacles in achieving this which includes lack of time for exercise (75 percent), lack of time to make proper nutrition choices (64 percent), and high cost of healthy food (62 percent).  Heart, brain and eye health were the top three aging-related concerns in the Philippines.  

Herbalife Health Poll Survey was conducted in September 2015 as part of its preparatory activity for their Asia-Pacific Wellness Tour.  1,200 respondents across six countries including the Philippines were asked about their perceptions towards their health and current lifestyle.

Road to better understanding on healthy lifestyle

“The findings from the Herbalife survey clearly show that the majority of people in Asia Pacific that we questioned believe in the value of good nutrition and exercise as contributing to their overall well-being. We aim to play a greater role in providing practical tips and information to people to help them understand that the journey to a healthier, more active lifestyle is not difficult to achieve. With as little as 10 minutes a day, consumers can take positive steps to improve their nutrition and be more active, which will improve their overall well-being,” said William M. Rahn, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Herbalife Asia Pacific.
