WITH so many people observing poor eating habits and leading a sedentary lifestyle, it is not surprising that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the country. Obesity, high blood pressure and a high cholesterol level are among the causes that contribute to the increase in incidences of heart disease. The risks however, can be reduced through a change in lifestyle. Lowering your cholesterol level, for instance, can be done by eating healthily and exercising. Or by drinking a glass of milk every day.
Nestle Malaysia has initiated the Nestle Omega Plus 30-Day Challenge which was held in Wisma Life Care. The campaign, aimed at raising awareness on the need to maintain a good cholesterol level for healthy heart, involved a challenge for public to lower their blood cholesterol levels within 30 days.
Radio listeners with high levels of cholesterol were invited to participate. The three radio stations involved were lead by their DJs Wai Fun (尹匯雰 from MyFM), Ross (LiteFM) and Salih Yaccob (SY from Sinar FM).
An initial blood sample was taken from the contestants. Contestants were required to drink two glasses of Nestle Omega Plus milk daily and practise healthy eating and exercise. The high-calcium milk contain ActiCol with plant sterols, which have been proven to help lower cholesterol level. A follow-up blood sample is to be taken after 30 days to determine if there is a reduction in their blood cholesterol level.
A seminar related to healthy and nutritious solutions to managing cholesterol and maintaining a healthy heart was also held for the participants.
