Kalbe, a healthcare conglomerate in South East Asia, launched another science based nutrition brand – Entrasol Platinum, a formulation to add strength and quality to the most rewarding years of life and during recovery from illness and surgery.

It provides nutrition that helps fill in the ‘nutrition gap’ between the nutritional needs of the aging and recovering body and the actual food consumption of an adult.

The Kalbe Group provides an integrated healthcare solution with its four business divisions: Prescription Pharmaceuticals, Consumer Health, Nutritionals and Distribution and Logistics.

Hemas Pharmaceuticals have supported Kalbe as the distribution partner of Kalbe products for well over 25 years.

Kalbe Sri Lanka Country Manager, Sudarshana Jayatillaka said, “Entrasol Platinum and the entire portfolio of Kalbe nutritional products are scientifically formulated and manufactured under the most stringent quality and safety standards (ISO).”

From the Philippines Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition, Dr. Divina Redondo-Samin said, “The elderly population is one of the most vulnerable groups to develop malnutrition which can decrease their muscle strength and energy, which can lead to poor health and frequent hospitalisations.”

“Many elderly parents often do not have the strength to support their children and grandchildren. Malnutrition is poorly recognised and addressed and contributes to a vicious cycle,” said Brand Manager, Kishan Canagasabey adding, “At present, we see a global transition in the market from curative therapies to preventative nutrition.”
