BODY, MIND & SOUL Start your day with the right break­fast

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Body, Mind & Soul -

MOTH­ERS al­ways stress the im­por­tance of break­fast and stud­ies have backed up this ad­vice.

Yet many do not pay at­ten­tion to what they con­sume to start the day.

As healthy food op­tions are not as ac­ces­si­ble and affordable as un­healthy ones, most in­dulge on tasty but un­healthy op­tions with­out con­sid­er­ing the fat con­tent, or the long-term health ef­fects.

Break­fast for cham­pi­ons

A study by Har­vard School of Public Health (HSPH) found men who reg­u­larly skipped break­fast were at greater risk of coro­nary heart dis­eases.

They also found that non-break­fast eaters gen­er­ally felt hun­grier later in the day and ate more at night.

A 2005 study pub­lished in Phys­i­ol­ogy and Be­hav­ior jour­nal high­lighted eat­ing a healthy break­fast po­ten­tially ben­e­fits short-term mem­ory and at­ten­tion.

It also helps chil­dren per­form bet­ter in read­ing, arith­metic and prob­lem-solv­ing tests.

As food is im­por­tant, mak­ing good break­fast choices is piv­otal.

Foods such as whole grains are rich in nu­tri­ents, low in calo­ries and high in com­plex car­bo­hy­drates – the ideal su­per­food to kick-start the day.

Tap­ping into this is in­stant health drink NH Nutri Grains, which is made from 20 nu­tri­ent-rich grains, pur­ple sweet pota­toes and sol­u­ble fi­bres in­clud­ing Inulin and FiberSol-2 for our daily nu­tri­tional needs.

Pur­ple sweet pota­toes are an ex­cel­lent source of fi­bre, vi­ta­mins and min­er­als.

This root veg­etable also con­tains more an­tiox­i­dants than blue­ber­ries while it can also lower blood pres­sure, reg­u­late blood sugar and boost immunity.

Grains are packed with pro­tein, di­etary fi­bre, vi­ta­mins, min­er­als and phy­tonu­tri­ents, which are needed for good health, mak­ing this drink ideal for peo­ple of all ages. While whole grains are ben­e­fi­cial for health, not all grains are made the same way.

NH Nutri Grains uses a unique ex­tru­sion process to help min­imise nu­tri­ent loss, im­prove grain di­gestibil­ity and en­hance nu­tri­ent ab­sorp­tion. This tech­nol­ogy also im­proves the taste of grains, giv­ing it a de­light­ful taste and aroma.

NH Nutri Grains con­tains zero preser­va­tives, artificial colour­ing or flavour­ing and is one of the eas­i­est drinks to pre­pare.
