Can't find the time to exercise? Try stretching

  People nowadays can’t seem to find the time to exercise due to busy lifestyles. However, stretching is a great form of exercise as it can   simply be done at home under ten minutes and is relatively less intense compared to outdoor exercises such as jogging, swimming and   cycling. Not only can stretching help to relax your muscles, it can also improve posture, helps to improve back pain, relief stress and more.     6 Benefits of Stretching     1. Improves flexibility   Regular stretching can help to increase flexibility, which not only allows you to perform everyday activities with relative ease, but also   helps in maintaining balance, delaying reduced mobility caused by aging and reducing the risk of falling.     2. Improves blood circulation   Stretching can help to improve blood circulation by allowing more blood to flow to your muscles. This helps to relieve muscle tension and   stiffness, reduce muscle recovery time and even reduce muscle soreness.     3. Improves posture   Long term poor sitting habits or repetitive motions can cause muscle imbalance, which can lead to poor posture. However, stretching a   specific muscle groups helps to encourage proper alignment, which in turn help to reduce muscle imbalance and improve posture.     4. Helps to heal and prevent back pain   Having tight muscles can lead to decreased range of motion, increasing the risk of straining your back muscles. Stretching can help   to heal back pain by strengthening the muscles, prevent future back pain and reduce the risk of muscle strains.     5. Relieves stress   Sometimes physical and emotional stress can tighten up your muscles. Try stretching the area of your body where you tend to hold your   stress, such as your neck, shoulders and upper back.     6. Helps to reduce tension headaches   Tension and stress headaches can seriously affect your daily life. Besides having a well-balanced diet, staying hydrated and having   adequate rest, stretching may also help to relieve headaches.     6 Simple Stretching Exercises   Hold each stretch for 30 seconds. It is normal to feel some tension while stretching your muscles; however, if the area you are stretching   starts to hurt, back off the stretch until you don’t feel any discomfort.     Reference: Healthline Heho Health

Is white meat healthier than red meat?

Is white meat healthier than red meat?

It is a popular belief that white meats (such as chicken, duck or fish) are better for cardiovascular health than red meats (such as pork,   lamb or beef), as red meats generally have higher amount of saturated fats than white meats. Food with high saturated fat can raise the   blood cholesterol levels, increasing the risk of cardiovascular diseases.     Red meats and white meats have equal effects on blood cholesterol levels   A recent study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has challenged these claims. This research study has found that   surprisingly, consuming both types of meat raised blood cholesterol levels more than consuming the same amount of plant-based   proteins. Regardless of the type of meat, their effects on blood cholesterol levels are the same given that the saturated fat levels are   equivalent.     Non-meat protein sources are the best for cholesterol levels   According to Dr. Ronald Krauss, the senior author of the research team, the results indicated that restricting meat altogether, whether red   or white meats is more advisable in lowering cholesterol, and that non-meat protein sources such as vegetables, dairy, legumes, nuts and   toufu are the most beneficial for cholesterol levels.     Reference: Science Daily: Red and white meats are equally bad for cholesterol

Don't let your guard down! Beware of Dengue too

Don't let your guard down! Beware of Dengue too

Both COVID-19 and dengue has been a double health threat in Malaysia. While staying at home during the pandemic, beware of the mosquitoes too. With the arrival of rainy season, the Ministry of Health has predicted a second wave of dengue fever in the 2nd half of the year and urged Malaysians to not let their guard down in preventing dengue despite the pandemic.   Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne disease caused by the dengue virus, which is primarily transmitted by female mosquitoes of the Aedes type. Dengue is a common tropical disease worldwide and has been affecting the lives of many in Malaysia throughout the years.   The incubation period of dengue usually ranges from 4-7 days. Symptoms of dengue include high fever, headache, muscle and joint pain, eye pain, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite and rash. People infected with dengue virus usually recover within 2-7 days.   However, it is a concern that people who have previously been infected with dengue have a greater risk of having severe dengue disease if they were infected again. Dengue virus has four serotypes, meaning one who recovered from initial dengue infection (and is believed to have lifelong immunity to it) will still have the chance of getting infected by the other three serotypes and has a higher risk of developing severe dengue fever on subsequent infections, which can damage the lungs, liver or heart and can be deadly.   Currently, there is no specific treatment for dengue and the symptoms usually resolve on its own. Preventive measures such as avoid mosquito bites, clear stagnant water on items such as containers, jars or pots regularly, avoid going to high risk areas, use of insecticides and maintaining a balanced immune system are crucial to avoid getting infected by dengue virus.   A balanced immune system is the key to prevent infection and faster recovery.  The best ways to maintain a healthy, balanced immune system include having a well-balanced diet, ensure adequate sleep, exercise regularly and relax.   References: Oriental Daily News Sin Chew Daily

Beware of this silent bone disease

In every three seconds, an osteoporotic fracture happens somewhere around the world. Osteoporosis is a common bone disease, but it should not be overlooked. Because 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men over the age of 50 experience osteoporotic fracture.   Osteoporosis, also means porous bone is a disease characterized by low bone density, resulting in weak bones and increased risk of bone fracture.  Osteoporosis is asymptomatic and painless, but its resulting bone fracture can be painful, fatal and lead to long term disability. The most common fracture include wrist, hip, pelvis, vertebral and upper arm fractures.   Most people reach their peak bone mass between the ages of 25 and 35. But as we age, our bone mass begin to lose, which can eventually lead to osteoporosis. Not to mention that women are more likely to get osteoporosis than men.   According to a study done by International Osteoporosis Foundation, women tend to lose bone at a faster rate within 5 years of menopause. This is caused by the decline in estrogen level during menopause, which protects women’s bone. Hence, bone health is important for women above the age of 50.   Some other risk factors for osteoporosis include family history, poor diet and lifestyle.   Bone health is important at every age and stage of life.   How to prevent Osteoporosis?   1. Adequate Calcium intake Milk, yogurt, cheese, toufu, soybean, sardines, salmon, broccoli and kale are food rich in calcium.   2. Adequate Vitamin D Sun is a natural source of Vitamin D, other food sources include egg yolk, mushrooms, tuna, salmon and mackerel, which helps in calcium absorption.   3. Avoid unhealthy lifestyle and diet Excessive alcohol intake, smoking and high salt diet can lead to bone loss, which promotes osteoporosis   4. Exercise i) Weight-bearing exercise such as walking, jogging, climbing stairs and dancing can help to strengthen muscle and bones.   ii) Yoga and Taichi are great to improve balance, coordination and flexibility, reducing the risk of falling.   Milk is the best source of calcium, but there is no other milk like Stolle ImmNuPlus- which protects not only your bones, but your overall health.   Stolle ImmNuPlus contains milk nutrients and patented bioactive factors: specific IgA and IgG antibodies, anti-inflammatory factors, macrophage-activating factors and anti-atherosclerosis factors, which help you to achieve immune balance as well as protecting your gut and cardiovascular health.   Prevention is better than cure, so beware of your bone health before it’s too late!

Lifetime breast milk

Without our mothers, we won’t be here today. The love and protection she gave us started way back since pregnancy.   Placenta- the bridge between mother and infant, plays such a huge role in delivering maternal nutrients to the infant, gas exchange and providing maternal immunity. IgG antibodies, the only antibody class that can be transferred to infants via placenta, circulate in the blood circulation, protecting the infants from infections.   Breast milk- a baby’s first food, is the most precious gift a mother can give. Not only it supports newborn’s growth and development with its rich nutrient content, breast milk is also rich in antibodies, mainly the IgA antibodies. These antibodies provide long lasting protection to the newborns’ respiratory and gastrointestinal systems while their immune system is still in development, providing immunity against harmful microorganisms.   Antibodies are part of the adaptive immunity, which is not present at birth. Hence, specific antibodies are produced by the immune system via encounter with pathogens after birth or vaccination. The antibodies present in breast milk provides maternal immunity to newborns and is beneficial for their growth and health.   This Parent’s Day, let’s return our love and protect our parents’ health with Stolle ImmNuPlus, which contains specific IgA and IgG antibodies. Stolle (M) wishes all parents a happy parent’s day!
