Blackmores, Australia’s No. 1 natural health supplement brand, is proud to announce a new three-year partnership with China’s legendary world champion women’s tennis player, Li Na. The tennis icon will join the Blackmores family as a brand ambassador, supporting health and wellbeing activities across Asia and Australia.
“I’ve used Blackmores products for many years. They are Australia’s number one supplement brand and Australia is a very special country to me – it’s where I won my last Grand Slam and I feel a strong connection to it,” said Li Na at the press conference. “It was in Australia that I announced my pregnancy to the world and I was overwhelmed with good wishes and support. I am very excited about working with Blackmores,” she said.
For over 80 years, Blackmores has been at the forefront of natural health advocacy, inspiring people to live healthier lives. The company is known for unrivalled quality and delivering natural health solutions and knowledge that empower consumers to make well-guided decisions on their health and wellbeing.
“Maintaining good health has been an ongoing journey for me and I’ve experienced many challenges through my career. It’s even more important now as I am pregnant and need to ensure I am getting the essential nutrients for my developing baby,” said Li Na.
She adds, “I need to trust the brands I work with. I trust Blackmores as I know that they only use the best ingredients and that they source them in an environmentally sustainable way.”
Blackmores CEO and Managing Director, Ms Christine Holgate, said the company is proud to be partnering with one of China’s most inspiring sports legends.
“We have followed the career of Li Na and know she is a formidable force on the court. Importantly, she is also a passionate advocate for health and we are honoured that she’s chosen to work with Blackmores.”
"The Blackmores brand has been trusted for many generations – we have won the Most Trusted brand award in Australia, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore. As Li Na embarks on her new journey into parenthood, Blackmores is pleased and proud to work with her she inspires others to learn more about the importance of good nutrition.” said Ms Holgate.
To support her pregnancy, Li Na is currently taking the top selling Blackmores’ product, Pregnancy and Breast-Feeding Gold. This special formula provides 15 essential nutrients, including nine vitamins, six minerals and omega-3 fatty acids that are beneficial to the health and wellbeing of a pregnant mother and her developing baby.
"My doctor supports my decision to take Pregnancy and Breast-Feeding Gold and has checked that it is safe. I am confident in the product quality and I know it will help me through my pregnancy and when I am my breast-feeding, which I am planning to do,” said Li Na.
Blackmores looks forward to a long and successful partnership with Li Na to improve the lives of consumers by empowering them to stay healthy naturally.
