The global population is aging with more than 50 percent of elderly people being malnourished or suffering from Sarcopenia. Sarcopenia is the degenerative loss of skeletal muscle mass quality and strength associated with aging. There is a lack of awareness in Malaysia, and globally, of Sarcopenia in the aging population with no appropriate product that is available and affordable for this group. Currently in Malaysia up to half of the elderly population may be undernourished or suffering from Sarcopenia. Resurge Gold 55+is a nutritional supplement with a specific medical purpose that has been specially designed to help people suffering from Sarcopenia. Resurge Gold 55+ is the first nutritional supplement product to be available on the market in Asia. Resurge Gold 55+ has been formulated by reviewing the recommendations of The Society on Sarcopenia, Cachexia & Muscle Wasting since 2010 (https://society-scwd.org/) and research published in the Journal of the American Medical Directors Association 2013 and the Journal of Frailty Aging 2013. These journals recommend that people suffering from Sarcopenia should consume;
– Source of protein from Whey, a fast acting protein
– 25-30g protein per serving
– More than 3g of Leucine, a dietary amino acid
– Creatine, an organic compound to gain muscle
– Vitamin D 20 mcg/per day
Our new product Resurge Gold 55+ meets these requirements.

MOTIVATION FOR THE NEW PRODUCT
To increase awareness of the benefits of high protein intake among Malaysia’s aging and elderly population in order to sustain and strengthen skeletal muscles and improve quality of life. Reduced skeletal muscle means less body strength leading to increasing disabilities, reduced quality of life and the need for professional carers.
