Herbalife Health Poll: 9 in 10 Filipinos ”highly concerned” about the potential diseases that an unhealthy lifestyle can cause #MedicalHealthWorlwide #Herbalife

Herbalife Health Poll: 9 in 10 Filipinos ”highly concerned” about the potential diseases that an unhealthy lifestyle can cause #MedicalHealthWorlwide #Herbalife

MANILA, Philippines - Nine in 10 Filipino consumers surveyed by global nutrition company Herbalife are “highly concerned” about the potential diseases that an unhealthy lifestyle can cause them, with the same number believing that simple lifestyle changes can help improve their overall well-being.

A good number of the respondents expressed willingness to adopt a healthy lifestyle; 79 percent said that they would cut down on unhealthy foods, 78 percent expressed their willingness to exercise more regularly, and 72 percent said they would make better nutrition choices.

“We welcome the results of the survey. It gives an understanding of Filipinos becoming even more health concious and self-aware that they need to make some lifestyle changes to improve their overall well-being. It also gives Herbalife an idea where we are needed, because as the survey revealed only four out of 10 would spend 10 to 30 minutes a day to make simple lifestyle changes,” said Rosalio Valenzuela, Herbalife Philippines General Manager.

The respondents, however, cited the following as the top obstacles to achieving a healthy lifestyle: lack of time for exercise (75 percent), lack of time to make proper nutrition choices (64 percent), and high cost of healthy food (62 percent).

The same health poll likewise showed that the top three aging-related concerns in the country were heart, brain, and eye health.

Better knowledge and understanding

“The findings from the Herbalife survey clearly show that the majority of people in Asia Pacific that we questioned believe in the value of good nutrition and exercise as contributing to their overall well-being. We aim to play a greater role in providing practical tips and information to people to help them understand that the journey to a healthier, more active lifestyle is not difficult to achieve. With as little as 10 minutes a day, consumers can take positive steps to improve their nutrition and be more active, which will improve their overall well-being,” said William M. Rahn, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Herbalife Asia Pacific.

Herbalife conducted the survey in September 2015 in the lead-up to its Asia-Pacific Wellness Tour. It surveyed 1,200 respondents across six countries, including the Philippines, on perceptions towards their health and current lifestyle. Respondents from Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, South Korea, and Thailand were likewise included in the survey.

While lots of foreign students are found anywhere in the world€"like in US, UK, Germany, France, Australia, or Japan€"some cannot ignore studying in the Philippines.

For example, Kwon Ka-young, a Korean university student who went to the Philippines last year to volunteer and study English said: €Studying in the Philippines helped me not only to improve my English skills but also to become more of a global citizen.€ Aside from Koreans, an increasing number of Americans, Koreans, Taiwanese, Chinese, and other foreigners also pursue their education in the country.

Why do some 5, 000 foreign students study here in the Philippines? Few countries in Asia can match the country when it comes to providing quality education and fun at the same time.

I enjoyed the fiestas mainly the Ati-atihan, where Koreans and Filipinos all became one by dancing, singing, and even drinking together.

Studies also show that it is more affordable to study in the Philippines compared with other countries offering high quality education. It is because a person can live a modest lifestyle by only spending US$350 to US$500 a month.

Exercise And Natural Pills To Improve Memory And Focus #MedicalHealthWorldwide

Exercise And Natural Pills To Improve Memory And Focus #MedicalHealthWorldwide

A good memory and focus is significant for pursuing complex academic courses and for having a good professional career in life. Initially experts relied on measurable intelligence to find the level of mind power but these days the test on working memory is also done. In a research, it was found that about ten percent of the students suffered from some kind of memory problems. Working memory is the memory which allows the person to remember and manipulate information for a specified duration. Natural pills to improve memory such as BrainOBrain capsule is a natural remedy for people who want to get better memory and concentration.

The working memory of a person is calculated by giving dual tasks to a person. In this test the individual needs to remember the previous task and instructions related to all the tasks in hand, in conditions, when there is no more need for information. The measurement of working memory helps to identify different skills or capability in real work situation of a person. It shows interest, preferences and efficiency level of an individual. In a research on school children it was observed that at least 10 percent of students suffered from working memory problem. These problems can be prevented by taking the right kind of remedy such as doing the exercise to improve memory or in certain cases natural pills to improve memory can be taken.

In a study published by the Child development organization, the screening of about 3000 school aged children studying in the mainstream schools was conducted and it was observed that the students suffered from working memory problems. This kind of memory problem is also linked to low achievement in academics. This is the capability which is unaffected by parental education, financial background or environmental influences. Additionally, students with poor focus are unable to concentrate. They get lost very quickly and may lose interest in a topic. Students having memory problems may repeat things because they do not remember what they did previously. This also hinders their capability to speak in public and share about events.

Exercise to improve memory: The easiest exercise to increase focus and improve the power of brain is to do meditation. Generally, experts advise school children to read fiction story books which help them to focus. Natural pills to improve memory work in the similar manner to reduce anxiety in the person, by inducing sleepiness to make the person feel relaxed and motivated. Certain herbs have the power to reduce depression and stress like symptoms such as Bacopa monnieri. Convolvulus pluricaulis is an herb which can increase mind power and focus.

The best exercise to improve memory is to try to relax the mind, where one focuses on one subject or a topic and forgets about all the stress in life to calm the brain. Natural pills to improve memory has the same effect on the brain that helps in relaxing the mind and it also helps in reviving its power for repair of damaged part of brain to help in increasing mind power and focus.
