Del Monte Fizzy Juice Drink

Thursday, January 19, 2017

     I'm not a soda person. I don't drink soft drinks because my father taught me to hydrate myself by drinking more water. Since I don't drink sodas, I'm more of a juice, coffee, and tea consumer. There are times that I try to drink soda in can if my default drink is not available but after a sip or two, my throat hurts. 

     Those who are into health and fitness are looking for healthy alternatives to sodas. Do you love drinking softdrinks but are looking for a healthier alternative? Now, you can satisfy your craving for soda with a healthier fizzy drink, introducing New Del Monte Fizzy Juice Drink. See this promising product below :)

Are Filipinos at Risk of High Cholesterol?

Saturday, August 13, 2016

     Filipinos love to eat. It's already a part of our culture. We love to throw parties, eat out, and dine in with our family and friends over good food. Sometimes we forgot that we need to watch what we eat especially if one has or have health-related disease. Most of the delicious food that we eat contains high calories and fats. If we always eat fatty food, chances are we will have high cholesterol levels.

     The number of Filipinos with high levels of cholesterol has greatly increased, results from the 8th National Nutrition Survey show. In 2008, 31.3% or 1 in 3 Filipino adults had borderline to high cholesterol. The latest survey in 2013 by the Department of Science and Technology’s Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DOST-FNRI), however, shows that the prevalence has alarmingly spiked to 1 in 2 Filipino adults. The FNRI’s latest data reveals that 46.9% of Filipinos aged 20 and up today have borderline to high cholesterol. Sharing with you below the highlights of Del Monte PATACSI Foundation Day launch below.
Are Filipinos at Risk of High Cholesterol?
Factors for increase cholesterol levels

  • Poor dietary choices
  • Stress
  • Physical inactivity 
  • Experts also link high levels of cholesterol to the top non-communicable disease (NCD) killers in the Philippines which include diabetes, chronic respiratory disease and cardiovascular diseases. 
  • Cardiovascular diseases alone account for 170,000 deaths in the Philippines each year, making it the leading cause of mortality among Filipinos.

“The rising prevalence of high total cholesterol today is alarming. We need to make people more aware of the situation and do something about it” said Dr. Imelda Angeles-Agdeppa, Assistant Scientist from the FNRI. “Having high cholesterol levels means being subject to greater risk of heart disease and other illnesses. A switch to a healthier lifestyle is a major step in keeping these diseases at bay.”
Curbing cholesterol levels

     As a response to this major health issue on high cholesterol in the country, Del Monte launched Heart Smart 100% Pineapple Juice and Orange Juice Drink with Reducol, which is an ingredient that is clinically proven to help lower cholesterol. Studies have shown that plant sterols and stanols, the main components of Reducol, significantly lowered bad cholesterol levels among clinical trial participants.

     The Philippine Association of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeons (PATACSI), the specialty organization of all certified thoracic and cardiovascular surgeons in the Philippines, is partnering and supporting Del Monte in this advocacy to increase awareness and help prevent the continuous rise of cholesterol in the country.

     According to Mr. David Peele, President of Avoca Inc. and makers of Reducol, “based on various clinical studies conducted, Reducol has been proven to be safe and effective in lowering cholesterol levels,” In the Philippines, Del Monte Heart Smart is the only Reducol-fortified food product or drink, containing 1 g of US-FDA approved Reducol per serving. Based on the results of clinical studies, two servings of Del Monte Heart Smart per day may help reduce cholesterol levels in eight weeks.

Healthy lifestyle still the key

     Though Del Monte Heart Smart with Reducol reduces cholesterol levels, a healthy lifestyle remains vital to optimize benefits. “To best manage cholesterol, it is still important to have a healthy regimen which includes a healthy diet and constant exercise” said PATACSI President Dr. Michael Baccay. A diet consisting of fruits and vegetables, whole grain, fat-free and low-fat milk products, fish, legumes (beans), and lean skinless meats can help prevent spikes in cholesterol.
