Product Review: Athena Milk Flavor Powdered Milk

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

     When was the last time you treat yourself for a full glass of milk? I'm sure you'll answer when you were in elementary or high school. I'm not sure if my relatives and friends still drink milk before going to bed or whenever they want to. The only thing that I'm sure and will be forever sure would be my addiction to coffee. I'm a self-confessed coffee addict and for the record I can drink three cups twice a week and twice everyday. I know, I know drinking coffee has positive and negative effects in our body. Caffeine makes me alert but I can't take the palpitations and when that kicks, I'll be up the whole night. 

     I'm so happy when I won the giveaway of Ms. Divine Caraecle- 1,500 php worth of Unilab products! So when I was browsing Unilab's site, the first thing that came to my mind were beauty and skin care products. But when I saw Athena on the list, I never think twice if I'll add this to my prize list. What I have in mind that time was the the word BEAUTRITION. I forgot about coffee that time and this milk keep on swirling on my mind. To make a long story short, when the prizes arrived on our door seps, I immediately opened a box of Athena Milk Flavor Powdered Milk and the moment I tasted it, my heart told me that I should make a switch.

Athena Milk Flavor Powdered Milk for Women

What I like:
  • The price is affordable.
  • Available in different sizes.
  • For those who love chocolate flavor drink, Athena Chocolate Flavor Powdered Milk is for you!
  • This milk flavor tastes great. No need to add sugar.
  • The milk has a very fine texture like that of skim milks that I've tried before. I'm sure that this is low in fat because it's main ingredient is skim milk.
  • Didn't cause flatulence or irritation on my tummy that I experienced from other brands of milk in the market today.
  • This milk has help me to have a regular bowel movement. I like that this didn't made me constipated that I also experienced from other brands of milk that I've tried.
  • As for other benefits like Vitamin A, E and Zinc, I noticed that I get lesser pimples even if I stay late at night.
  • High in calcium and low in fat- two things that a milk should have for my age. 
  • Easily accessible.
  • Has batch, manufacturing and expiry date.
What I don't like:
  • Can be a pain to mix because it's forming intact if hot water is added. 
Will I repurchase? Yes, I'm on my third box now. The first two boxes was my prize from the giveaway that I've joined :)

Recommendation:
     I give this a 4.75/5 rating! Now I know why Anne Curtis-Smith loves drinking this milk. I know she's the endorser of Athena but the mere fact that it's really made with lots of nutrients for beautrition made me think that not all endorsers lie in their commercial ads. I hope you get what I mean here. If she loved this milk, I can say I'm loving this too. My love for coffee will still be there but I think it's time to lessen my consumption since I'm getting older, I need more calcium in my system to avoid osteoporosis. I need to lower my fat intake because metabolism slows down for women at their 30's especially to those who have sedentary lifestyle. 

     Do you still drink your glass of milk before you go to sleep? What's you favorite brand?


Good Times!~

  20. In terms of nutritional value, Anmum Materna stands out for me. Not only is it rich in folic, but with calcium and iron, too which are essential building blocks for developing babies.

    1. Hi Rhia,

      Not sure on that effect pero diba pag umiinom ka ng milk, kahit anong brand pa yan it will help you have a good night sleep. But base sa pag-inom ng Athena hindi ko ma-assure na nakakatulong nga sa tamang pagtulog.
