Nutrive Benecol Invites Indonesians to Control Cholesterol After a Delicious Meal – The Idul Fitri moment is over, but most of the typical Eid food served can cause several health problems, one of which is increased cholesterol levels. As it is known that elevated cholesterol levels can cause high blood pressure or hypertension and can lead to coronary heart disease which is still the main cause of death in Indonesia. PT Sanghiang Perkasa (KALBE Nutritionals) through one of its superior products, Nutrive Benecol, a functional food to help lower cholesterol, again reminded the Indonesian people to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

“The moment of Lebaran, which we recently celebrated, is certainly filled with joy because we can stay in touch with our extended family and relatives. Even so, some special Eid foods can cause cholesterol levels to rise, because they are high in fat and oil. KALBE Nutritionals especially Nutrive Benecol wants to invite the public to be able to control their cholesterol because even though they are aware and adopt a healthy lifestyle, it is not certain that their cholesterol level can always be stable. Therefore, Nutrive Benecol is always present and becomes a delicious food companion that helps lower cholesterol,” said Robertus Purba as Director of Adult and Specialized Nutrition KALBE Nutritionals in the Halal Bihalal and Health Talkshow with fellow journalists on Tuesday (16/5 /2023).

Data from Basic Health Research (Riskesdas), the prevalence of coronary heart disease in Indonesia was 0.5 percent in 2013 and increased to 1.5 percent in 2018. This prevalence rate has the potential to increase especially in early 2023, Deputy Health Minister Dante Saksono Harbuwono said there are 14.4 percent of causes of death in Indonesia caused by coronary heart disease.

On the same occasion, dr. Putri Sakti, M. Gizi, Sp. GK, AIFO-K, CBCFF, Clinical Nutritionist, said that an unhealthy lifestyle greatly affects cholesterol levels.

“Instant life, high-fat diet, and rarely exercise are some of the triggers for high cholesterol levels, especially in productive age. There needs to be awareness for early detection if you experience symptoms of high cholesterol which are generally asymptomatic but can trigger several symptoms when cholesterol has accumulated in the walls of blood vessels such as neck, shoulders and nape feeling sore, then cramping easily, especially at night, chest pain, like sleepy, and easily tired. Understand the early symptoms of high cholesterol and take immediate action, such as routine cholesterol level checks so as not to cause more serious illness,” said dr. Princess Sakti.

Healthy food can sometimes be less appetizing. However, dr. Putri explained that there are many ways you can do so that healthy food can still be enjoyed. “It’s not difficult to start a healthy diet, for example changing from frying with healthier oil and not overdoing it, then balancing it with fruit and vegetables or making it into juice or creating it with yogurt so that it is more enjoyable to consume while maintaining health,” continued dr. Princess Sakti.

New Nutrive Benecol Yogurt Innovation

The dairy product market, including yogurt, has indeed shown an increasing popularity from year to year. Based on analysis from Spire Research and Consulting, yogurt consumption in 2022 will reach 28% of total consumption of dairy products because it is increasingly recognized as a health product that contains lots of nutrients.

Seeing this, Nutrive Benecol, which has been available in smoothies so far, is now presenting its newest innovation, Nutrive Benecol Yogurt. “Nutrive Benecol Yogurt certainly adds to the choices of the Indonesian people who are familiar with the Smoothies variant. This latest innovative product is certainly different from the Smoothies variant because it contains Original Yogurt Fresh and Yogurt Powder containing probiotic cultures which are not only good for digestion, but can also help lower cholesterol because they contain Plant Stanol Ester so that Nutrive Benecol Yogurt becomes #YogurtDeliciousLoweringCholesterol,” explained Dessyana , Brand Manager Nutrive Benecol.

The Plant Stanol Ester (PSE) content in Nutrive Benecol products has been clinically tested to help reduce cholesterol by up to 10% if consumed regularly 2x a day immediately after meals. Its structure is similar to cholesterol and serves to block the absorption of cholesterol in the digestive system.

“We hope that Nutrive Benecol Yogurt can be widely accepted by the people of Indonesia because this Nutrive Benecol #NoBiasa Yogurt has more benefits than regular yogurt, and directly beats cholesterol from the food we eat. Of course, balanced with a healthy lifestyle and exercise, controlling cholesterol will definitely be easier,” concluded Dessyana.
