Aging is a process of life where people get older every second of the day. It also represents changes in human being over time and with aging comes with great possibilities.
Many of us slow down in life when they reach the age of, let’s say 30s? 40s? or even 50s? Yeah. Slowing because a person feels slightly different compared when he or she was younger. As we grow older we felt changes in habits, lifestyle, food, and what else?
We fear the coming of age as a sign when we are much prone to diseases. We cut our food intakes so we can live a moderate and healthy lifestyle. But we also tend to cut out misadventures in life. Why? Because our mindset taught us to take it slow when we reach that certain old age to avoid unfortunate things that could happen to us because we’re old.
This mindset hinders people from doing the many things they still can achieve, like exploring a new country; learning a new hobby or sport. And when it comes to experiencing “firsts,” millennials and their adventurous spirit usually comes to mind. But what these ‘old’ parents of millennials may not realize at first is that with the age of wisdom comes new possibilities that will encourage one to never stop exploring.
Good thing that there is Boost for people who think rather not become adventurous but they just want to stay at home an watch television reruns.
Boost, a nutritional powdered supplement drink from Nestle Health Science is specially formulated for adults 50 and up to address their nutritional needs as they age in order to get the most out of life – to live up and be their best. “We believe we have the responsibility to provide nutritional therapies that change the way we approach health, and ultimately help create a better quality of life for our consumers”, says Paul Bruhn, Regional Head of Nestle Health Science AOA. “We recognize the increase in ageing consumers who now live longer, and we aim to empower them to take action to manage the age-related changes they experience and help them stay healthy”, he added.
Research shows that special nutrition may help to manage the normal changes our bodies go through during life. It is important to consider that nutritional needs tend to evolve with time and gradual changes in lifestyle, dietary habits, and metabolism often develop. That is why Nestle Health Science developed the Boost range. It takes into consideration what nutrition may be lacking in the diets of adults 50 and up, and these oral nutritional supplements can positively impact their nutritional intake to help them stay healthy and active.
Recently, Boost was officially launched in the Philippines and brought together a few of the country’s personalities and their children to show us how baby boomers and millennials are more alike than we think.
“I realized that age is never an excuse to stop yourself from trying new things,” shares Ramon Jacinto. “I see it in my kids and if I want to be youthful like them, all I need to do is believe that I can still do as much as they can!”
Ramon’s son, RJ Jacinto, agrees saying, “I notice that dad has been more daring. Ayaw magpatalo sa millennial!”
“There is so much to discover and experience. I’m slowly trying to accomplish more and more things in my bucket list!” shares Tessa Prieto-Valdes.
“It’s refreshing hitting new milestones at this age. And I think I can go on doing just that till I hit 70!” shares Quinito Henson.
When asked about a surprising ‘first’ she saw her mother accomplish, Coco Quizon, daughter of Zsa Zsa Padilla shares, “I remember when my mom and I tried to learn how to drive together a few years ago. We pretty much quit soon after because we were hitting every curb!”
“I was usually so scared of driving; there’s so many different things to worry about,” Zsa Zsa adds, ”But then one day, I surprised her by picking her up for dinner.”
“I still don’t drive or have a license, so good job for her!” Coco says.
It is recommended to drink Boost 1-2 times a day, as part of a balanced diet. “It has been proven that we should eat 5 small meals a day and not let ourselves go hungry because then, the body will start to store fat to have some energy on reserve. Eating one big meal for lunch or dinner is not wise because we pack all the calories in one go. Hence, Boost is perfect for my in-between meals. I can put it in my shaker and just add water”, says Ruby Gan.
Nobody understands healthy ageing like Nestle Health Science. By incorporating Boost into your lifestyle, you will better understand that your life shouldn’t slow down–and neither should you. By making your own healthy choices in the way that these personalities do, you can take charge of your own life.
