The fourth supplement Nutrilite virtually launched this year is the Nutrilite Green-T Plus Tablet. After a brief introduction by eRally host Baki Zainal and the legendary in-house Senior Nutrition and Wellness Trainer Shamini Devi, the event kicked off with a song and dance by BodyKey user and local singer Reyhana Yunus who lent her voice for the premier of BodyKey’s theme song and showed us the simple yet sassy dance moves with her crew.
The eRally, which took place on 28 May 2021, was streamed live on Microsoft Teams for all Amway Business Owners (ABO) to witness the launch of the latest health supplement and learn about its benefits from a panel of speakers.
Taking on the challenge of losing weight sustainably in 60 days with BodyKey by Nutrilite, the event showcased Reyhana’s weight transformation journey that resulted in her losing 7kg (fat loss), 6.3% (body fat percentage) and overall 8kg (of her total weight). Reyhana basically lost the weight of a hand carry luggage!
During the eRally, Reyhana said, “My breakfast was always nasi lemak and I would eat it every day. But I realised I had to change this habit because I knew it was taking a toll on my body. Today, to maintain my health and keep my body in good shape, I choose to practice healthier options. This includes the BodyKey Meal Replacement Shakes and the Nutrilite Soy Protein (Drink)…I also choose to make my meals in an air fryer and exercise at least 3 times in a week.”
She also said she still gets to eat her favourite meals but eats them in moderation using the ‘suku suku separuh’ food portion guide. Introduced by the Malaysian Health Ministry, the ‘suku suku separuh’ essentially means filing up your plate with half portion fruits and/or vegetables, a quarter protein (chicken/fish) and a quarter carbohydrates (rice/quinoa/couscous/bread).
Reyhana’s resilience in staying true to her health goals and being discipled truly worked as her results showed both physically and on the scale. Her motto? “If I can do it, so can you!”

After marketing and nutrition updates from Marketing Head Joanne Chong and Nutrition Category Manager Joyce Tan, ABOs learnt how ingredients such as Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG) from green tea and brown algae perfected by the Green Select® Phytosome® technology aids in losing weight sustainably from Nutrilite Principal Research Scientist Dr Jina Hong.
Dr Jina said green tea is filled with beneficial antioxidants and phytonutrients. The most important of these is EGCG, a polyphenol with anti-obesity effects which can help you to lose weight by boosting your metabolism.
But it’s difficult for the body to absorb a polyphenol like EGCG. So, most of the time, this polyphenol is simply eliminated from the body, thereby reducing the benefits experienced.
To get the full benefits of EGCG, it is important to find a source which uses a technology called Green Select® Phytosome®. This technology uses a small, natural complex to bind the EGCG together so that it is more bio-available (easily available) and allows your body to absorb it optimally*.
*A single clinical study involving 12 male subjects showed increased serum levels of EGCG after administering 400 mg EGCG in a Phytosome preparation compared to non-Phytosome preparation. Other clinical studies involving different botanical extracts in phospholipid preparations have shown similar results.
She added that the supplement also contained brown algae. Also known as laminaria japonica, it is a source of fucoxanthin, a carotenoid that has shown promise in the prevention of obesity since it may inhibit the build-up of abdominal fat and reduce fat build-up in the liver.
When combined, both the Green Select® Phytosome® green tea extract and fucoxanthin from brown algae helps increase energy expenditure. Thus, improving your body's metabolism and making it possible for you to burn more fats.

Ensuring that ABOs got the best of body beautiful from Reyhana and the facts from Dr Jina, the eRally ended its wholesome show by getting down to some useful business tips with Thailand Executive Diamond Tanat Panichingon, a key advocate who built his Amway business with Nutrilite and BodyKey.
He says, “The most commonly-asked question I get from prospects are them asking how one starts a conversation about health and to earn an income from proper weight management products. To this, I say, be the example of the products you speak of. I have lost a total of 15kgs from BodyKey and Nutrilite, and I tell them that I am a living example that these products work and helps you maintain a better quality of life.”
He added that a proper diet and exercise was also important while consuming the weight management products.
All in, the eRally garnered almost 3,000 views and was received well with positive feedback from viewers saying the show felt like it was watching an episode of popular US sitcom Friends and the creative concepts made them laugh and learn throughout the event.
