Actor Dingdong Dantes has inked a partnership with Abbott, maker of Ensure Gold®, as the product’s brand ambassador because he himself prioritizes the bond of family and caring for people whom he holds dear.

“Age should not stop our loved ones from enjoying life. My dad wants to keep an active lifestyle so he can bond with our family and I try to give him the emotional and nutritional support that he needs – that’s my gift of strength to him,” shared Dingdong Dantes.

The actor and brand ambassador also mentioned that besides from family members, giving back has been an integral part of protecting his relationships with people who support him professionally and personally. “It’s important for me to give back and help them live their lives fully.”

Armed with HMB (beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyric acid), a metabolite of the essential amino acid leucine3, Ensure Gold® is considered as the first nutritional supplement for adults in the Philippines that is specifically designed to aid muscle mass maintenance in adults who need the strength to face everyday activities. It is also scientifically formulated with high quality protein, calcium, vitamin D and 28 vitamins and minerals to help build muscle mass and help adults Stay Strong®.

“Abbott helps people live their best life by providing nutritional support for Filipinos’ ageing loved ones. We believe nutrition is the foundation of good health and we are excited to bring the new Ensure Gold ® with HMB as a gift of strength to adults in the Philippines, so they can continue doing the things they love,” said Dr. Jun Dimaano, medical director for Abbott Nutrition Asia Pacific.

Based on a conducted research, nine out of ten aging adults aren’t meeting the daily recommended amounts of key nutrients necessary for a healthy and active lifestyle. Adults aged 40+ start losing muscle mass and by 70+ years of age, adults can lose up to 33% of their original muscle mass. Although not always be visible, muscle loss can manifest symptoms like weakness, slower walking speed, unintentional weight loss, exhaustion, low physical activity, body pain and cramps.

“When Dingdong told me about the new Ensure Gold®, I was eager to try it out, knowing that I also need to step up when it comes to taking care of myself and my muscle health. At 65, I have improved strength that allows me to continue to dance and stay active even now,” former Abztract Dance Group choreographer, Geleen Eugenio mentioned. She also added that focusing on nutrition helps her continue her passion for dancing and helps others find joy in being active.

Backed by 46 years of scientific evidence and more than 30 clinical studies, Abbott’s Ensure® nutrition supplements have been helping to nourish adults so they can live their lives to the fullest.
