A few weeks back, it was easy for us to enjoy the fresh air. Go on a quick beach trip with our friends, bask under the warm rays of the sun, and savor the local fishermen’s catch after an early morning surf. However, it would take a long while for us to go back to the “normal” we have been accustomed to. Currently, we are fighting off an invisible enemy – and as a nation, we fight as a team, as a whole.

THE NEW NORMAL

Extreme measures were enforced to flatten the curve and one of these is enhanced community quarantine (ECQ). We are now living in the new normal – we have to make do with what we have. People are given limited hours to stock up on goods that should last a week or two, add this to the social distancing mandated by the World Health Organization (WHO).

With the current circumstance, it is important to be mindful of the things we put in our baskets and choose only the healthier alternatives. According to a 2014 study by Harvard Medical School, our first line of defense is to choose a healthy lifestyle. Every part of our body, including the immune system, will function better when bolstered by healthy-living strategies such as preparing home-cooked meals or meal planning and eating healthy.

POOR NUTRITION = POOR HEALTH

When we don’t get the proper nutrition that our bodies need, our defenses can run low and we’ll be at a higher risk of catching viruses and bacteria. Other symptoms of poor nutrition include fatigue, weak and soft bones, impaired cognitive performance, etc — and we don’t want this happening to you and your families especially now that we’re facing a health dilemma across the nation.

We need to be smarter about our food choices. It’s best to forego products that aren’t good for our bodies and those that offer very limited nutritional value. The next time you’re out to shop for two-week food stock, it’s best to seek out nutrient-dense snacks or food that are made from all-natural ingredients, provide energy, and contain high amounts of quality proteins,  vitamins, and minerals; you would want to stock up on snacks that could easily fulfill your nutrition needs while satisfying your hunger.

A MEAL SUPPLEMENT THAT #FILLSGOOD

Good thing for us Filipinos, the market offers nutritious products packed with vitamins and minerals that wouldn’t hurt your wallet – one good example is soy milk.  Did you know that soy is an excellent source of high-quality protein that is beneficial for both kids and adults? Meat and dairy may be widely known as protein sources, but thankfully it is not the only choice. Soy milk is one of the most common and nutritious dairy alternatives that provide high-quality protein. What’s even better is that it’s plant-based so you’re more assured that soy milk is free from hormones and antibiotics that may be found in some animal-based products.

One particular brand is leading the innovation in easing soy milk into the lives of Filipinos —  Vitamilk Soy Milk is naturally high in plant-based protein, essential fatty acids,  vitamins and minerals which makes it good for the brain, body, and heart. Each serving is filling enough to satisfy your hunger and cravings, like a meal on its own. You won’t regret finishing a whole bottle because it’s not only delicious, it’s nutritious too!

Luckily, we don’t need to rely on meat or dairy to get full-range protein. The plant-based protein found in Vitamilk Soy Milk also has the amino acids found in meat-based protein that form the building blocks of our muscles and tissues which are essential for growth and muscle building. It is important to note that a protein-rich diet also keeps you feeling fuller, allowing you to eliminate unhealthy choices.

Vitamilk is also rich in brain-building amino acids Omega 3, 6, and 9 which is great for supporting the healthy nerves and synapses of our brain. Additionally, the amino acids and isoflavones found in soymilk protein help lower the bad cholesterol, improving our overall cardiovascular health.

When you are to choose among the limited food options, make sure that you pick up a product that is densely packed with vitamins and nutrients, has a long shelf life, and most importantly, can help boost your immune system.

Not everyone has the capacity to lend an extra hand to the nearest relief operations unit. However, it is already a huge contribution to the whole nation if we keep ourselves healthy inside the comforts of our homes while our front liners arm themselves up for battle each day.

Stock up on Vitamilk Soy Milk to stay healthy – if the opportunity arrives, share it with our modern-day heroes, the front liners.
