Anlene giveaway!

What is osteoporosis?

medical condition in which the bones become brittle and fragile from loss of tissue, typically as a result of hormonal changes, or deficiency of calcium or vitamin D.

Many of us don't know that osteoporosis is a silent killer. One or more members of your family maybe at risk. And you might be one of them. Prevention is the key. Drinking 2 glasses of Anlene milk a day means meeting the requirements of daily Calcium need.  Anlene contains 500 mg of calcium in a single glass while a glass of Anlene Gold has 600 mg of calcium. 2 glasses a day gives 1000 mg Calcium, 5 ug Vitamin D, 96 mg Magnesium and 2 mg of Zinc.

When Franco of Bridges contacted me about Anlene, I immediately thought of my mom. You see Anlene has always been a part of her grocery list. She has been drinking the milk for as long as I can remember. She started with Anlene and right now, Anlene Gold. 

mom and my sister

My mom was diagnosed with osteoarthritis- degeneration of joint cartilage and the underlying bone, most common from middle age onward. It causes pain and stiffness, especially in the hip, kneeand thumb joints. The joints of her fingers are causing her so much pain. We had to go to Philippine Orthopedic to have custom braces for all her 10 fingers. She has been putting it on diligently every night. In the morning, when she wakes up, she dips her hands in warm water if ever she feels any pain. 

Yearly, she undergoes a bone density test (DEXA scan) to check on the condition of her osteoporosis. She knows that it's already too late when she started drinking Anlene. But nevertheless, she is religiously drinking milk to hinder the advancement of her osteoporosis. 

Knowing that my mom has osteoporosis, my younger sister, age 25, has started taking Anlene too! She wants to prevent osteoporosis from happening to her. She commented that it tastes like full cream milk even though it's a low fat powdered milk drink. She knows that the only solution is prevention. 

Anlene 180g PhP125.70

Milk Man has been delivering fresh milk once a week at my place so I have my own supply of milk. I mix my milk with my chocolate drink and psyllium husk during breakfast and drink another glass in the afternoon. When I received the boxes of Anlene that afternoon, I prepared a glass of milk for myself. I put 4 tablespoons of milk in a glass and then mix it with cold water. I like my milk cold hehe

Anlene gets my stamp of approval

I had a hard time mixing the powdered milk with cold water. I think I should have put a little hot water first. But I like that it's creamy and not too sweet.
