Nature’s Heart, a brand available only at Guardian, is dedicated to offering healthier food and drinks of exceptional quality, taste and value has introduced their Multi Grains Fruits and Vegetable Drink Mix, Milled Flax Seeds and Chia Seeds.
Nature’s Heart understands that while consumers want to adopt a healthier lifestyle, health foods and drinks can be less appetising compared to the sweet, salted, spicy, creamy, oily and flavouring-added foods that are the first choice to many of us.
The majority of us are guilty of trying and failing to change our diet, activity and stress levels. We cite lack of time, energy, money and willpower as well as the inconvenience of healthy lifestyles for our failure.
Nature’s Health aims to add convenience, taste, versatility and affordability to make it easier to start on a healthy lifestyle and to stick to it.
Malaysians need to get healthy as the state of the nation’s health is serious. The National Health and Morbidity Survey 2015 showed that approximately one in two people have high cholesterol levels. Adding to the health issues about 17.7 per cent of adults are obese, while about one out of three are overweight.
The same survey revealed that 94% of Malaysian adults do not eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables, when fibre has been shown to be essential to a healthy balanced diet.
Enter the Nature’s Heart’s new offerings of Multi Grains Fruits and Vegetable Drink Mix, Chia Seeds & Milled Flax Seeds that can be the first baby steps towards a healthier lifestyle as they can be conveniently added to food or drinks for nutritional benefit through natural ingredients with no additives such as chia seeds, and milled flax seeds.

These products can be consumed anytime of the day. A useful tip for those who find it challenging to commit to a change in diet is to focus on one meal a day such as breakfast and gradually incorporate goodness and a more nutritional diet at all meals.
Breakfast is vital as it helps regulate our body between eating and fasting and provides the fuel for our body so it can burn calories throughout the day. It also acts as a boost of physical and mental energy to keep you going throughout the day as it increases blood glucose levels which is an important element for brain function. Kick-start the day with Nature’s Heart Multi Grains Fruits and Vegetable Drink Mix which is cholesterol and trans-fat free food, with no added preservatives, high in dietary fibre and contains oat beta-glucan.
Beta-glucan is a type of soluble fibre that may help reduce blood cholesterol levels and stabilise blood sugar levels.
