"When I was training for the 100km Oxfam Trailwalker several years ago, my trekking buddy suggested I start taking Moringa to boost my energy and endurance, as it had helped her. When some time later she developed the Nutrigaya line with Bodhii Boost, a Moringa product, I started taking it as part of my daily regime. Not only do I feel it gives me an energy boost, it also boosts my immune system. I rarely, if ever, come down with colds or flu...” - Cathy Hilborn Feng, Journalist and Physical Activist
They say you are what you eat, but with a busy Hong Kong life to maintain it might seem that all you ‘are’ is a hastily grabbed sandwich, or a bleached-of-all-nutrients rice box.
Enter natural health supplement company Nutrigaya, which is on a mission to provide our bodies with natural support for a sustained and inspired sense of well-being. Founded in 2015, the company is driven by the principles of ancient traditional medicines and holistic, whole-body healing systems.
Nutrigaya's story began with the CEO’s discovery of the power of Moringa, described as a miracle tree and nature’s multivitamin. Moringa now appears on the company’s virtual online shop shelves as Bodhii Boost, together with complementary supplements, Bodhii Core, Bodhii Pure, and Bodhii Calm, to make up the signature Bodhii Life range.
Bodhii Boost fan, Hilborn Feng, is also an advocate for Bodhii Pure, “to give my liver a break”, and Bodhii Calm, “to help ease stress and enjoy a great night's sleep". Feng says, “I'm a purely plant-powered endurance runner and walker, and believe this trio of all natural ingredients helps me to keep crossing the finish lines. I just finished my 8th Trailwalker, and with Nutrigaya's help, expect to finish many more - even though I am no spring chicken."
In addition to the all-natural product range, Nutrigaya’s website is a source of information for those seeking to learn more about natural wellbeing. A glossary of nature’s wonder plants and cell building amino acids is bursting at the seams with inspiration and information - did you know that curry leaf is considered to hold antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties, and aid digestion? How about that amino acid histidine is a growth and repair amino acid? We didn’t either!
You’ll also find a delicious collection of recipes and wellness tips, to support those striving to improve what they eat. If that’s you, busy Hong Konger, you may have found the answer!
