Back in 1977, Malaysia Milk Sdn. Bhd. (MMSB) introduced VITAGEN to Malaysians, making VITAGEN the first cultured milk in Malaysia before other brands of cultured milk drinks. The introduction of VITAGEN also helped to educate the Malaysian public about the benefits of cultured milk drinks for a healthy digestive system.
Today, VITAGEN is still the popular choice for cultured milk for many Malaysians and continues to satisfy the increasing needs of health-conscious Malaysian consumers. VITAGEN is a cultured milk drink made by fermenting skim milk with billions of live probiotic cultures (good bacteria i.e. Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus casei) to help maintain a healthy digestive system. These probiotic cultures are specially imported from Chr. Hansen Laboratory in Denmark, a world leading cultures laboratory supplying high quality probiotics worldwide.
Probiotic cultures in VITAGEN can withstand bile and acidic stomach juices and reach the intestines alive to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria in the intestines. With the presence of these probiotic cultures, the environment in the colonic flora becomes unsuitable for harmful bacteria to grow. They also remove toxins and waste from our body. The longer waste matter remains in the lower intestines, the higher the chances of intestinal distress and possible cancer when carcinogens attack normal cells.
In a nutshell, probiotic cultures in VITAGEN combined with the good bacteria in our body help the body defend it against toxins, harmful bacteria and allergens.
Thus, VITAGEN contributes positively to our health because it promotes good colon health and improves our immune system. It increases resistance to harmful bacteria and takes care of good digestion.
