Win a Smartwatch And One-year supply of Quaker products With The Quaker Smart Heart Challenge!

Have you had yourself checked lately?
It's best to get a routine blood work at least once a year since it is one of the most important ways to keep track of your overall physical well-being. This way, you can see the way your body changes over time to easily make decisions about your health.
Honestly, if it weren't for this event, I would never know my cholesterol level. Yes, they took blood samples during the event to have our cholesterol levels checked for free! I know right, ang saya! 
With various health issues going around us these days, this is such an important time to talk about a healthy lifestyle and also taking care of our body, especially our heart. 
In a recent survey conducted by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRl)1, they found that one out of two adult Filipinos has borderline to high cholesterol mainly because of unhealthy diet and lifestyle. Our inclination towards fatty foods contributes to an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases. 
In fact, based on the latest report of the Philippine Statistics Authority, heart disease is the #1 cause of death in the country. 
Quaker, the number 1 oats brand in the world, aims to lower cholesterol for better heart health management among Filipinos through the Quaker Smart Heart Challenge. 

I'm sure you've already heard about it. First introduced in 2004 in the Philippines, the challenge was developed to demonstrate how adding oatmeal to your daily diet helps reduce cholesterol. 

Let us know how to take care of our heart and why Quaker should be an essential part of our daily lives:

It is sad that people with high cholesterol are getting younger and younger. We used to think that only older people will get it.  Everyone can get high cholesterol level in the body. In a country where eating is a national passion, we tend to disregard the effects of the food we consume. Even though fast food and processed goods are becoming staples in our daily meals, many don’t take into account their nutritional density. There is such thing as vegetable deficiency. Although doctors don't diagnose it usually, it can be a diagnosis. We have unlimited source of seafood and vegetables here in the Philippines but sadly  only a portion of that gets consumed.

1. We need to increase our vegetable intake. 
2. Try to cook as much as you can minus processed foods. Fast food has become accessible to us to the point that is is easier for us to eat fast food than home-cooked meals. 
3. We have to incorporate physical activity. If you lessen the junk food and yet not move at all, cholesterol level will still shoot up. 
4. Focus on soluble fiber. It expands in your gut and will prevent absorption of bad cholesterol. When we consume too much rice, since we are the top consumer hehe, carbohydrates will increase, thus, the production of carbohydrates in the body will also increase. 
Simple changes can make a huge impact to your health. 
Take the Quaker Smart Heart Challenge.
This aims to help individuals lower their high cholesterol in just 30 days by making one simple change: incorporating two scoops or eight tablespoons of Quaker oatmeal daily, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol
This challenge was created to help adults learn about and develop heart-healthy eating habits, especially now that more and more individuals including more and more young Filipinos are experiencing heart problems and high cholesterol levels. 

To show how simple, convenient and tasty an oats-tilled diet can be, Quaker partnered with health coach Nadine Tengco to create a variety of sweet and savory recipes to complement the 30-day Quaker Smart Heart Challenge, perfect for young Filipinos who are looking to take better care of their hearts. 
Make your own oats breakfast jars with recipes like Coco-Choco Oat Jar and Oats n’ Mango Breakfast Jar, or step up your morning pick-me-up with Oats n’ Raisins Banana Mug Cake or Whipped Egg-Whites n’ Oats. 
“Incorporating oats into your daily diet need not be boring nor complicated. It‘s easier and more accessible now than ever to kick start a heart-healthy lifestyle,” shares Nadine.
