Mouth open… Arms spread… Big smile… you know the drill when you hear the song Cha-Cha Dabarkads, popularized by the child performer Ryzza Mae Dizon. A novelty music every Filipino could relate and dance with, especially our elders. But how can it be possible for them to follow the beat and groove in every steps if they are encountering health issues that affects their senior dream lifestyle and transform them to null.
Health issues that are usually unrecognized for that thought that it is included in the aging process. Unrecognized, for the thought that those who can only do regular diet and exercise are naturally healthy and not malnourished.
The truth, proper diet and food absorption is the key to being healthy.
Studies show that the proper mastication of our food is a major contributing factor on whether we properly absorb its nutrients. While for most of us, chewing is not a major concern, 28% of the population may have trouble chewing their food because they are either toothless or are properly/not properly wearing dentures.
Good thing, GlaxoSmithKline, the maker of Polident, in cooperation with dental experts created an advocacy event titled, A HEALTHY LIFE IN EVERY BITE, empowering and educating our senior citizen to a healthy lifestyle by highlighting the effects of improper use and care of dentures.
The event was filled with adorable elders who participated in different activities like dancing, singing and more. They were also given the chance to try Polident denture adhesive cream and powder that can hold up dentures up to 12 hours, as well as Polident denture cleansing tablets that kills 99.9% of odor causing bacteria proven in lab testing.
