Daniel Matsunaga the newest endorser of San Marino

Daniel Matsunaga reveals secret to having the strength to do what’s next after his PBB big win

Daniel Matsunaga 4

Held at the Mercato-Bonifacio Global City in Taguig, the San Marino Tuna Flakes launch event also treated guests and participants to try out exciting activities for free like wall climbing, trapezing, rappelling and win exciting prizes like GoPro cameras and Garmin watches.

IMG_20141011_212257 (1)

IMG_20141011_211430 (1)

As a believer in living life to the fullest, ‘Brapanese’ model Daniel Matsunaga regularly does cardio exercises, lifts weights, and participates in a lot of sports like professional football and the Spartan Race, the most difficult obstacle race franchise, whose US competition he wishes to join someday. He also loves to wakeboard and get into the groove of Brazil’s traditional dance Capoeira.

But sports and workout is only a small portion of what makes the Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) grand winner fit and strong. The strength to do all his activities, especially after his recent big win at the reality show, comes from a daily diet that consists of a lot of protein that he gets from his favorite tuna.

“Food diet is very important for me. It gives me the strength to seize whatever opportunity comes my way after winning the top prize in PBB. And for me, the perfect diet mostly consists of high protein tuna from San Marino Tuna Flakes,” Matsunaga said.

Protein, after all, is an essential building block of muscles. The more protein people eat, the more they build and strengthen their muscles, which in turn will allow them to enjoy more activities and live life to the fullest.

San Marino Tuna

“I just love San Marino Tuna Flakes. It’s all natural tuna goodness gives me just that – the strength to do what’s next in my showbiz career and sports engagements,” Matsunaga said.

After introducing a few years back its fresh twist to canned tuna, the “corned tuna,” San Marino has just joined the conventional  canned tuna market with the newly launched tuna flakes line that comes in oil and hot & spicy variants, and in easy-open cans.

Made from freshly-caught tuna with no preservatives, San Marino Tuna Flakes contains the highest level of protein to help build strong muscles so one can make the most out of life and take on #WhatsNewWhatsNext. This makes San Marino Tuna Flakes the perfect choice for health and fitness buffs. On its own or prepared in a variety of dishes like sandwiches and pasta, one can truly enjoy the natural goodness of tuna and the strength that comes with it.

During the launch of Matsunaga as the face of the new San Marino Tuna Flakes, Foodsphere President Jerome Ong said, “We are glad to welcome Daniel as one of our brand endorsers. After all, we created our newest tuna flakes product with millennials like him in mind. San Marino Tuna Flakes will fuel them so that they can do one exciting adventure after another.”

Ong further shared that their newest product is “a dream come true for everyone behind Foodsphere. It captures the essence of how the company has grown stronger and risen higher than ever to achieve its vision of providing total satisfaction to Filipinos through food that nourishes life.”

Present as well in the San Marino Tuna Flakes’ launch are fit & fab celebrities like young basketball superstars Jeric and Jeron Teng, Dela Salle Archers’ Big Man Arnold van Opstal and lady spiker Mika Reyes, hunks Marc Nelson and Victor Basa, actress-models Phoemela Baranda and Bubbles Paraiso, showbiz reporters Ginger Conejero and Divine Lee, showbiz daughter Dani Barretto, and hosts Nikko Ramos and Katz Salao.

Stronger for longer: More Life to Your Years with Enervon Prime

EPrime Logo

Our friends from Unilab, the largest and leading pharma & health care company in the Philippines will have exciting activities for our beloved seniors this October until 2014 of January.

Last October 13, 2014 friends from the media and Bloggers were invited for an intimate lunch at Aracama in BGC to talk about this supplement, a daily nutrition made for adults mainly for our beloved seniors.

Dr. Cheridine Josef

Dr. Cheridine Oro Josef is a Diplomate and Fellow of the Philippine Academy of Family Physicians (PAFP) where she holds the position of Vice Chair, and is on the Chair at the Philippine College of Geriatric Medicine. She is also the Immediate Past President of the PAFP PAMAMARISAN Chapter and Asst. Treasurer of the Marikina Valley Medical Society.

during the discussion, friends from the unilab prepared an activity for us to understand more on what is like to be in their situation. like having a hard time to open a bottle and by way of understanding and how it feels, they prepare some gloves and a bottle.

IMG_20141013_131513

This experiment shows that when your in the stage of 50 years old and above, –you are you unable to carry heavy load or will have a hard time loosen up the bottle.These are some of the symptoms of Sarcopenia, the gradual and progressive loss of muscle mass, strength, and functionality due to aging that Filipinos over 50 years old are suffering from.

“Maintaining health as we age is an important concern for all adults. In healthy young adults, 30 percent of body weight is muscle, and 20 percent is adipose tissue or fat. As early as the age of 40, and by the age of 60, our body would have lost 20 percent of its total muscle mass. By age 75, our body would have only 15 percent muscle and adipose tissue or fat is 40 percent, which can hinder adults from doing daily tasks,” said Dr. Cheridine Oro-Josef, chair of the Geriatrics Committee of the Philippine Academy of Family Physicians (PAFP).

High nutritional intake of protein and vitamin D, together with regular resistance exercise, may help reduce the risk of Sarcopenia and improve muscle health so adults can continue doing the activities that they enjoy such as dancing, playing sports, traveling, pursuing a new interest, or completing their bucket lists.

Being able to enjoy these activities is important to seniors, as studies show that they want to remain productive so they can make life meaningful for them as they age.

Seeing this need of the seniors, Enervon Prime, the nutritionally balanced milk supplement with high quality protein and vitamin D for 50 years old and above, is launching a Senior’s Prom Series and a Seniors Productivity Fair to help adults develop an active and productive lifestyle so they can improve their muscle health.

The Seniors Prom is a series of decade-themed prom nights one Friday every month starting October until January 2015. Guests “go back in time” to sing and dance to their favorite songs from the ‘50s to the ‘80s.  This will kick off with the Prime Time Seniors Prom: 50’s Flashback on October 24, 2014 at the RJ Bistro in Dusit Hotel, Makati.

50s flashback Logo

Ticket prices are at Php 1,000 per person inclusive of entrance to the party, dinner, and participation in fun games and activities plus gift packs from Enervon Prime. Tickets are available at RJ Bistro and RJ Guitar Stores.

The Seniors Productivity Fair, which will happen in December, is a one-day event that brings together all fun and exciting productive activities that adults can engage in like arts and crafts, fitness, travel, education, fashion, and volunteerism. Here, they can enroll in 1-3 month long workshops for the said activities and learn more about sarcopenia and how they can manage it.

“We at Enervon Prime are excited to be part of the next chapter of our consumers’ lives. We understand the physical, mental and emotional effects and limitations that may come when you hit 50 and more so after retirement.

IMG_20141013_122259

But we also know that this is their ‘prime time’ to pursue their passions and fulfill their bucket lists as they reap the fruits of their labor and enjoy the rest of their lives.  We believe that through proper nutrition, we can help our consumers stay stronger for longer and equip them with the strength to do what’s next,“ said Raine Romero-Calma, assistant product manager.
