BODY, MIND & SOUL Start your day with the right breakfast
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.
Bottoms up for good health
NH Nutri Grains contains zero preservatives, artificial colouring or flavouring and is one of the easiest drinks to prepare.
Just mix two scoops of NH Nutri Grains powder with cold or hot water to enjoy your daily staple of nutrients.
Additionally, this beverage is flavourful without the overwhelming taste of whole grains.
It is a drink that will appeal to a wide range of people, including children and the elderly.
NH Nutri Grains is ideal for pregnant women, diabetics and even those with high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
Children can enjoy better immunity and feel energised throughout their day, and it may even address certain conditions faced by the elderly.
A drink that will fit seamlessly into any lifestyle, NH Nutri Grains provides a flying start to your day.
