Mundipharma has extended its portfolio of nutraceuticals by launching Maxvida(TM) - a balanced nutritional supplement with 32 key nutrients - in Vietnam.
Mundipharma will subsequently look at other countries in the region to distribute the product, which was developed in the USA by Signutra(TM).
Raman Singh, CEO, Mundipharma, said: "2019 is our first year providing nutraceuticals and is the most recent example of how rapidly our consumer health portfolio is expanding - from just antiseptics a few years ago to a wide range of categories and a large number of products today. We will be actively planning a wider roll-out of Maxvida(TM) and will also continue to expand our nutraceuticals portfolio.
"We're excited to work with SignutraTM to be providing this excellent product in Vietnam, where nutrition is an issue, because it provides significant health benefits for consumers and patients.
According to a 2016 Vietnamese Ministry of Health report, 65.4% of elderly are experiencing health problems and another report found that 77% of elderly patients in hospital are at risk of malnutrition.
Maxvida(TM) contains Certi5(TM), which are five signature ingredients to help improve nutritional status and wellbeing comprising dual protein, dietary fibre, antioxidants hemo nutrients and bone nutrients.
Speaking at a scientific event preceding the launch, nutrition expert, Dr. Sander Hougee, PhD, from Netherlands, confirmed that all these ingredients are required in an optimal nutrition supplement.
