Lathalain: Benepisyo mula sa malunggay pinag-aaralan na

May tanim ka bang malunggay sa inyong bakuran? 

Alam ba ninyo na ang malunggay ay isa sa pinakasikat na halaman ngayon? 

Ang malunggay o moringa oleifera ay kilala nating masustansyang gulay noon pa man. Ito ay mayaman sa bitamina at sustansya. 

Ayon sa Food Composition Table ng Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI), ang isang tasa ng lutong dahon ng malunggay na tumitimbang ng 100 gramo (g) ay may 3.0 g ng protina, 25 milligrams mg ng kalsiyum, 14 mg ng phosphorus, 0.6 g ng yero (iron), 2,785 mg beta-carotene, 0.16 mg ng thiamin, 0.09 mg ng riboflavin, 1.0 mg niacin, at 69 mg ascorbic acid or vitamin C.

Ang malunggay ay may antioxidant activity, na tumutulong sa pag iwas sa ilang klaseng kanser. Ito ay dahil mayroon itong ยต-tocopherol (bitamina E) equivalent na 45, sukat ng bitamina E, isang magaling na antioxidant. 

Maliban sa sustansyang makukuha sa malunggay, may ibang benepisyo itong taglay. Dahil dito, matatawag na functional food ang malunggay.

Ang malunggay ay marami ang gamit dahil bawa’t bahagi nito ay mapakikinabangan. 

Dahil dito, naisipan ng FNRI na pag-aralan at suriin kung ano ang sangkap nito (active ingredient) na nagbibigay ng karagdagang benepisyo, ang lakas ng bisa, at ang tamang dami ng gamit.

Nag-uumpisa palang itong mga pag-aaral na ito, ngunit sa ilang taon lamang ay malalaman na natin ang boung potensyal ng malunggay. Abangan....

Para sa karagdagang impormasyon tungkol sa malunggay, sumulat o tumawag kay Dr. Mario V. Capanzana, Direktor, Food and Nutrition Research Institute, Department of Science and Technology, Gen.

Feature: Wellness and Health

Choose wellness. Choose health. Sounds familiar? This is a famous line we always hear, see and read from media advertisements. 

Recently, there is an increasing campaign on raising the awareness of Filipinos on health and wellness. But what exactly differentiates the two? 

Health and wellness are not synonymous. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. However, wellness is an overall balance of physical, social, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, environmental, and occupational well-being. Therefore, health is a goal to achieve while wellness is a multi-dimensional lifestyle to maintain.

Heightened advocacy on practicing and maintaining wellness is not only at the interpersonal level nowadays but also broadly covers the social, environmental and occupational dimensions of a person. These dimensions are not personal in nature but are important factors that influence personal wellness.
.
In line with this health and wellness trend, the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (FNRI-DOST) developed, implemented and evaluated a model corporate wellness program. Said wellness program is in support to the World Health Organization/Food and Agriculture Organization (WHO/FAO) global strategy on diet and physical activity to improve public health.

The program aimed to evaluate the employees’ health status as program sought to implement lifestyle modification programs and evaluate the effect on the reduction of risk factors to lifestyle diseases.

The FNRI Wellness Program showed positive changes among the participants who completed the program. These were in terms of anthropometric or height and weight measurements as well as blood chemistry levels except for the high density lipoprotein (HDL-c) known by some as “good cholesterol”. It was suggested that said changes may be the result of better eating habits and increased physical activity. 

The participants agreed that the program was interesting and it helped them become productive at work. As a result, they became more health-conscious and felt a lot better. It was suggested, therefore, that the program be adopted and institutionalized in other workplaces to bring about lifestyle changes. 

The study validated other studies conducted to examine the importance of wellness in the workplace. Wellness programs have resulted in reduced absenteeism, increased employee retention, reduced health care costs, and employee satisfaction according to R. Cogwell Anderson & B. Kaczmarek in the article, “The Importance of Promoting Health in the Workplace”.

Knowing the importance of wellness in the workplace, it is therefore beneficial for a company or institution to adopt a Wellness Program in order to assure the success of a business.

Lathalain: Malnutrisyon – mayroon nga bang dalawang mukha?

Ang konseptong double burden of malnutrition o “dalawang mukha ng malnutrisyon” ay patuloy na nakatatawag ng pansin ng higit na nakararaming sektor ng lipunan. Nguni’t ano nga ba ang tunay na kahulugan nito?

Ang “dalawang mukha ng malnutrisyon” ay tumutukoy sa patuloy na pagkakaroon ng mataas na bilang ng undernutrition (kulang sa timbang o taas) at micronutrient deficiencies (kulang sa iron, iodine at bitamina A) sa mga bata, kasabay ng mabilis na pagtaas ng bilang ng overweight at obesity at diet- at lifestyle-related non-communicable diseases (NCDs) tulad ng hypertension, diabetes at cardiovascular diseases sa mga matatanda.

Ang mga manipestasyong ito ng pagkakaroon ng “dalawang mukha ng malnutrisyon” ay sanhi ng mga pagbabago sa diet nating mga Pilipino. Ayon sa pag-aaral na isinagawa ng grupo nina Dr. Ma. Regina A. Pedro ng Food and Nutrition Research Institute ng Department of Science and Technology, nagkaroon ng magandang pagbabago sa kalidad at dami ng pagkain na kinokonsumo ng mga Pilipino. Nguni’t bumaba ang konsumo ng mga prutas at gulay base sa 2003 National Nutrition Survey.

Ang magandang pagbabago sa diet ng mga Pilipino ay makikita sa mataas na konsumo ng mga animal foods at langis at mantika. Nguni’t, ito ay nagging sanhi naman ng mataas na kolesterol at saturated fats sa diet at tumataas na bilang ng overweight at obesity.

Sa kabila ng magandang pagbabagong ito, ang kabuuang energy intake o konsumo sa enerhiya ay nananatiling mababa. Ito ang dahilan kung bakit mayroon pa rin sa ating mga kababayan ang kulang sa taas o timbang.

Ang konting prutas at gulay sa diet at ang tumataas na konsumo ng mga matatabang pagkain, kasabay ng konting physical activity at unhealthy lifestyle ay nagiging sanhi ng non-communicable diseases.

Feature: Simple reminders to keep family well-nourished

Food is an integral part of survival. We must eat to live. Here are some reminders to keep the family healthy, productive and fulfilled:

• Choose a variety of foods everyday. No single food can supply all the nutrients the body needs. Be sure to include food items which are rich in carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals plus a lot of fluids. Confining food choices to a few kinds of foods usually result in an imbalanced diet.

• Serve the right amounts of food to your family. Control the amount consumed to prevent overeating, but serve enough to meet their nutritional needs.

• Use fats and oils moderately in preparing family meals for more energy. Oil can be reused four times without affecting food flavor if you add one part fresh oil to three parts used oil before each reuse. Before storing oil, remove burnt particles at the bottom of the cooking vessel to preserve its flavor and color.

• Remember that according to the Daily Nutritional Guide Pyramids for Filipinos, persons aged 7-39 years are allotted 6-8 teaspoons of oil or fat per day.

• Serve more often one-dish meals like sinigang, linaga, munggo gisado or bulanglang to name a few. One-dish meals offer a variety of nutrients from the different food groups. They are also economical since cooking only one dish saves energy, time and money.

• Prioritize the food needs of infants and pre-school children before serving other family members. Likewise, a sick child or family member needs more nourishment to fight infection and recuperate. Give soft, nutritious foods like fish, beans, eggs, milk, vegetables and fruits. Remember to consult a doctor for further advice.

• If you have an infant, remember that mother’s milk is the best. Breastfeed exclusively from birth to 6 months or longer, and then give appropriate complementary foods, as stressed by the second message of the Nutritional Guidelines for Filipinos 2000 (NGF) developed by a Technical Working Group led by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (FNRI-DOST).

• Keep a garden to grow plants the family needs, such as tubers (kamote, gabi), legumes (munggo, patani, kadyos), green leafy and yellow vegetables (malunggay, kangkong, camote tops, alugbati, petsay, saluyot, squash) and fruits (banana, papaya, guava).

• Food safety at the household level is of paramount concern. Wash hands with soap and water before and after cooking, before eating, and after using the toilet. The place where we eat food must be safe and clean. Always check if the ingredients are fresh and clean before cooking.

Follow these reminders to keep your family healthy and happy.

Lathalain: Osteoporosis, iwasan – sa healthy lifestyle, buto ay maiingatan

Ang osteoporosis ay isang sakit kung saan nagiging mahina at marupok ang mga buto ng isang tao. Ito ay maaaring sanhi ng kakulangan ng kalsyum, inactive lifestyle, paninigarilyo at sobrang pag-inom ng alak.

Ayon sa mga pag-aaral, ang ehersisyo ay nakatutulong upang patibayin at palakasin ang mga buto. Kaya importante na mag-ehersisyo ang isang tao upang maiwasan na din ang pagkakaroon ng osteoporosis. Ilan sa mga ehersisyong ito ay walking, running, jogging, skating, aerobics o dancing. Ang mga ito ay dapat isagawa sa loob ng 30-60 minuto, tatlo hanggang limang beses kada linggo. Maituturing ding magandang ehersisyo ang mga gawaing bahay gaya ng pagwawalis, pag-garden, pagsibak ng kahoy, pag-ayos ng mga gamit at iba pa.

Ang paninigarilyo at sobrang pag-inom ng alak ay nakakaapekto sa calcium absorption sa ating katawan na nagre-resulta sa mahihinang buto, na maaaring maging osteoporosis.

Dahil dito, inirerekomenda ng Food and Nutrition Research Institute ng Department of Science and Technology (FNRI-DOST) na “Upang magkaroon ng healthy lifestyle at tamang nutrisyon, mag-ehersisyo, iwasan ang paninigarilyo at sobrang pag-inom ng alak”. Ito ay upang magkaroon ng matibay at malakas na mga buto at maiwasan ang osteoporosis.

Lathalain: Matipid ang pag-recycle ng tirang pagkain

Sa hirap ng buhay ngayon, kailangan matutong magtipid. Pagdating sa pagkain, pwede ng magtipid sa pamamagitan ng paggamit ng left-overs o mga natirang malinis na pagkain. Narito ang ilang paraan kung paano ito magagawa:

• ang mga pritong isda ay maaaring gawing kardilyo, torta o mga pagkaing may sarsa tulad ng eskabetse, sarsiyado o totso;

• ang karne sa linagang baka o baboy ay maaaring panggisa sa gulay, pansit at lumpia o maaaring gawing metsado o torta;

• ang ginisang gulay ay maaari rin gawing lumpiang prito o ihalo sa pansit;

• ang kaning-lamig ay maaaring isangag na may halong natirang hinimay na isda o baboy o itlog at toyo para pampalasa. Ihain kasama ng linagang berdeng gulay. O kaya ay pwede rin itong gawing pudding o ampaw. Para makagawa ng ampaw, ibilad sa araw ang kaning-lamig, iprito sa mantika ang binilad na kaning-lamig at lagyan ng inarnibal na pulang asukal; at

• ang lumang pan-amerikano o pan de sal o pan de limon ay pwedeng isama sa hinimay na isda o giniling na karne para sa burgers. Maaari ring gawin itong pudding para pang-himagas o gawing biskotso at pahiran ng margarina.
