Are You Health Conscious? Herbalife Health Poll Says You Must Be

You must have noticed that many people are trying to live a healthier lifestyle: running, gym time, healthy food and juicing up. You are probably thinking, "People are just getting old or getting children that's why they're starting to worry NOW". You may even blame that it's all for their image's sake on social media.

What if I tell you it's not just a "trend" anymore and definitely has nothing to do with what social media thinks? People actually BELIEVE they can be and WANT to be healthy. They are really CHANGING their lifestyle.

How Many People are Health Conscious?
According to a survey by Herbalife, a global nutrition company, there are 9 in 10 Filipino consumers who are "highly concerned" about the potential disease that an unhealthy lifestyle can cause. They also believe that simple lifestyle changes will improve their overall well-being. Cucumber infused water, anyone?

The top 3 age-related concerns were Heart, Brain and Eye Health. A good number of Herbalife's respondents expressed that they are willing to adopt a healthy/ healthier lifestyle. Here are the actions they thought they could accomplish and adopt permanently:

  • Cut Down on Unhealthy Food  - 79%
  • Exercise More Regularly           - 78%
  • Make Better Nutrition Choices  - 72%

Of course, the respondents admit that there are certain obstacles that hinder them from completely converting to a healthier lifestyle. Here are the most common issues that the respondents feel prevents them from keeping healthy lifestyle habits:

  • Lack of Time for Exercise                                   - 75%
  • Lack of Time to Make Proper Nutrition Choices  - 64%
  • High Cost of Healthy Food                                  - 62%

The survey also revealed only 4 out of 10 would spend 10 to 30 minutes a day to make simple lifestyle changes.

Herbalife's 2015 Survey
The survey above was conducted by Herbalife in September 2015 in the lead-up to its Asia-Pacific Wellness Tour. It surveyed 1,200 participants on their perception of their current healthy and lifestyle. These respondents came across from 6 countries: Philippines, Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and South Korea.
Healthy Perception/Concerns Survey in The Philippines
Herbalife feels much difference can be made from surveys like this, in order to help people truly achieve a healthier lifestyle. Senior VP and Managing Director of Herbalife Asia Pacific William M. Rahn said,
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.
Herablife Philippines' General Manager Rosalio Valenzuela adds,
We welcome the results of the survey. It gives an understanding of Filipinos becoming even more health conscious 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.
