For all my life, there is this mantra, learned from my mother, relatives and older friends, “milk makes healthy bones.” For the health and wellness organization, and doctors have touted milk as the key to healthy bones.
When it come for the family, health is the priority concern. As being a mother to my kids, that’s what I always telI them… “drink milk for your body, to be tall, strong…to be smart and to be healthy as they grow.”
Will milk make our bones strong enough to stand the test of time? Will it make them strong at all? I also think of it after for many years seeing people experiencing backache, back pain for fractures of the spine, wrist, or hip and even having osteoporosis.
Some ways to avoid sickness, body pains and risk in having serious conditions of pain are the following:
Getting enough Calcium
Getting enough Vitamin D and enough Vitamin A
Get enough protein
Getting regular exercise.
Having adequate calcium and vitamin D and performing regular exercise are also important to build maximum bone density and strength.
Milk is actually only one of many sources of calcium. Milk and dairy products are a convenient source of calcium for many people. They are also a good source of protein and are fortified with vitamins D and A. Calcium is a mineral that the body needs for numerous functions, including building and maintaining bones and teeth.
Health and wellness people pushing milk as the answer to strong bones. Through the efforts of Fonterra, maker of Anlene, bone health awareness continues to be significantly relevant and the role of high-calcium milk in Osteoporosis prevention is clearly established.
Anlene, the Expert in Bone Nutrition, is the leading bone health milk brand in the Philippines. Its products are enriched with a scientifically formulated complex of essential bone strengthening nutrients and provide twice as much calcium as regular milk. A research published in 2009 showed that Anlene is clinically proven to reduce bone breakdown within 4 weeks.
However, many Filipinos may not realize that joints too, experience daily wear and tear. Joints provide the lubrication between two moving bones. However, the joint cartilage which protects the ends of our bones can wear out. Glucosamine, an essential building block of joint cartilage, is naturally found in the body. It is produced by the body but the ability to do so is reduced with age. With this, even everyday pressure from usual activities like walking, climbing up and down the stairs, may cause degeneration of joints or Osteoarthritis.
From the Expert in Bone Nutrition comes a new formula containing twice the Calcium vs. regular milk and added Glucosamine to help protect not only your bones but your joints, as well! Anlene Total’s unique combination including Nano-calcium & Glucosamine helps maintain strong bones and helps fortify cartilage in joints, protecting them against damage caused by everyday physical activities.
Recently, New Anlene Total was launched in an interactive event held at Beyond Yoga Studio at the 3rd Floor of the IL Terrazo Building in Tomas Morato Avenue corner Scout Madrinian Street, Quezon City. Through a demonstration of customized exercises by US-certified Performance.
