DKSH, the leading Market Expansion Services provider with a focus on Asia, recently launched Abbott’s new complete and balanced nutrition supplement Ensure® Acti M² in Cambodia. The product was launched in conjunction with the ‘Nutrition for Cognitive Health in Adults Symposium’ for healthcare professionals in Phnom Penh.

Phnom Penh, Cambodia, January 31, 2015 – DKSH Cambodia invited renowned experts to present latest science on nutrition for the adults’ cognitive health. Participants learned about the science behind the formulation of Ensure Acti M².

Each serving of Ensure® Acti M2 contains 28 vitamins and minerals, such as calcium for strong teeth and bones and Omega-3, to support cardiovascular health. Many ingredients in Ensure® Acti M2 support  the brain and cognitive function, including 50 milligrams of Soy Phosphatidylserine (Soy PS) which is made from the enzymatic treatment of soybean lecithin with amino acid serine.

Human trials with Soy PS show that doses between 100 and 300 milligram per day, consumed for at least three months, can lead to cognitive benefits such as improvements in short-term memory. i, ii, iii, iv

Ensure® Acti M² contains choline, an essential nutrient required for the normal functioning of cells, brain and organs in the body. 

“DKSH and Abbott enjoy a long collaboration of giving the people of Cambodia access to high-quality nutritional supplements. Following the seminar, DKSH will use its strong marketing, sales and distribution capabilities to ensure that as many people as possible can enjoy the benefits of Ensure® Acti M²,” commented Sarah Lee, General Manager Consumer Goods, DKSH Cambodia.
