AstaReal is seeking to tap into demand for products that protect against sarcopenia, with the astaxanthin firm hopeful that it will lead to significant opportunities in the functional beverage space.

The company’s Singapore president Dr Vincent Wood delivered a keynote presentation on the topic at our recent Healthy Ageing APAC Summit.

We caught up with him off-stage in this exclusive video to recap his top takeaways.

He discusses the rise in sarcopenia cases both regionally and globally, as well as the growing volume of research identifying how good nutrition can play a preventive role.

Dr Wood also reveals that the company has developed a unique ready-to-drink (RTD) functional beverage to support healthy muscles and mobility, containing soy and astaxanthin.

Take a look at the video to find out more.
