Be Part of the Movement, Unlock a Healthier Way of Living with Nitro Nutrition

 With health becoming more of a key focus than ever for Filipinos, health and wellness company Kyäni Philippines announced the official launch of the Nitro Nutrition Movement in the country this April 21, 2022 at the Okada Manila Hotel, Pasay City.

Kyäni has dedicated itself to combining natural ingredients with the best of modern technology to help people live healthier lives. True to its tagline “Be A Healthier You”, Kyäni products are specifically designed to help people receive the nutrients lacking in a modern diet. For example, many of Kyäni’s products help the body produce more nitric oxide, which is essential in a body’s response to injury and an important reaction to jump-start the healing and repair process.

Kyäni is in over 50 countries and Kyäni Philippines is celebrating its 8th anniversary this April. To celebrate the launch of the Nitro Nutrition Movement , a series of events will be happening on April 23-24, where attendees can learn more about Kyäni and the Nitro Nutrition Movement.

The launch of the Nitro Nutrition Movement Program brings Kyäni a step closer to its goal of helping Filipinos live healthier. “I was here to launch Kyäni Philippines in 2014,” says Michael Breshears, Co-Chairman of the Kyäni Board of Directors. “I am so happy to be back.  Kyäni is all about helping others and we will continue to do that for many more years.” 

The Nitro Nutrition Movement centers around three key concepts: the plan, product, and community.

The Nitro Nutrition plan is a simple two-step plan starting with a 21-Day Reset where you remove inflammatory foods and replace them with clean proteins, fats, and carbs. This plan  is supplemented with Kyäni products (below). The  21-Day Reset is followed by a Monthly Accelerate which will help you make a clean diet stick and reap benefits such as improved metabolism. 

Kyäni’s nature-based products start with the Triangle of Health  – Kyäni Nitro, Kyäni Sunrise, and Kyäni Sunset – which deliver the nutrients you need plus the science to make sure they are absorbed by your body. Kyäni Sunrise is a delicious blend of vitamins and minerals while Kyäni Sunset provides nutrients to support heart health and healthy cholesterol levels.  Kyäni Nitro supports the production of nitric oxide which plays a role in many aspects of health, from brain communication to inflammatory response.

Protein products like Kyäni’s FIT20 and HL5 are included in the Nitro Nutrition plan. They contain grass-fed whey and hydrolized collagen proteins that provide digestive support and help your body develop a healthy inflammatory response.  The latest addition to the Kyäni line of supplements is Origin, a nitro-powered, plant-based shake.  Origin features a perfect balance of plant-based proteins, healthy fats and carbohydrates to help you maintain a healthy weight, recover from workouts, and live the active life you love!  

The Nitro Nutrition Program also creates a community of  members with Facebook groups where they can exchange fun recipes, workouts, and even ask any health-related questions that come to mind. Spanning thousands of members from across the globe, these Nitro Nutrition groups foster a sense of community you can’t find anywhere else. 

According to world-renowned nutrition and fitness expert and Nitro Nutrition co-creator Mark Macdonald, “This will empower you to understand your nutrition and fitness so you can live your greatest health. Focus on starting where you are, with a vision of where you want to take your body and health.  We’re with you every step of the way.”

Kyäni Philippines General Manager Kate Bellosillo urges Filipinos to start their Nitro Nutrition journey today. “With Nitro Nutrition, Kyäni is giving people a way to take back control of their health in a way that’s fun, easy, and full of support,” Bellosillo said. “I highly encourage people to begin their Nitro Nutrition journey as soon as possible—they’ll surely thank themselves for it later on.”

Modess and Miss Universe Philippines encourage young Filipinas to be stewards of their menstrual health

 As the world continues to open up, following years in lockdown, there is a renewed consciousness to stay healthy. For women, this includes taking charge of their menstrual health which was discussed at the #BeNextPeriodReady with Modess event held last April 26, 2022 in partnership with Miss Universe Philippines.  

Awareness and education around what good menstrual health means is the first step in encouraging more women to pay attention to this important area of their health. A second critical factor is support from organizations to provide the resources needed to participate fully in all aspects of life during their menstrual cycle, which include making quality menstrual products available and providing access to proper information and consult. 

The advocacy to educate and encourage young women to pay attention to their menstrual health is one that is shared by both Modess and reigning Miss Universe Harnaaz Sandhu. 

Sandhu mentioned that she continues to work with different groups and individuals to convert what she calls period poverty to period powerty, so that women everywhere can have greater access to the knowledge and tools they need to improve their state of menstrual health. She also shared her excitement in working with various organizations in the Philippines to help provide Filipino women, especially the teens, with everything they need for better management of their period—physically, emotionally, and socially.

“Part of achieving good health is paying attention to menstrual health which has long been our advocacy at Modess,” said Johnson & Johnson (Philippines), Inc.’s marketing director, Rezel Aquino. “We feel it’s important to ensure that our #GenFree know exactly what to do to keep their menstrual health in check as they take on new challenges and chase after their dreams.”

Highlights of the event included an educational talk on the importance of caring for one’s menstrual health addressed to young Filipina women from reigning Miss Universe Sandhu Harnaaz; a discussion between Miss Universe Philippines 2021 Bea Gomez and Mica Geronimo, a young Filipina teen that addressed common perceptions around a young lady’s monthly period; and a panel discussion between Miss Universe Harnaaz Sandhu, Miss Universe Philippines Bea Gomez, marketing manager for Feminine Care of Johnson & Johnson (Philippines) Inc. Rehi Dimayuga, and program head of Bantay Bata 163 Levi Ambon-Rata that covered different points of view on menstrual health. In the audience were around 50 teens who are part of ABS-CBN Foundation’s outreach activities for child welfare. 

“It’s important for us to empower and enable Filipina teens to take charge of their menstrual hygiene and health,” added Miss Universe Philippines 2021, Bea Gomez. “We can do this by teaching them what to do, providing them with what they need, and helping them build new and healthier habits especially as they slowly but surely go back out into the world.” 

#BeNextPeriodReady with Modess

Over the last decades, Modess has worked to educate and encourage young Filipinas to take care of their menstrual hygiene and health through various initiatives that teach healthier habits and help provide the necessary resources. Modess products are part of that equation, offering the #GenFree superior protection and all-day comfort.

“Today’s Filipina teens need a pad that can keep up with them as they conquer the new normal,” said Dimayuga. “With Modess, they can be free from worries knowing they are guaranteed up to zero leaks. At the same time, they can feel more confident to make bigger moves towards their passions and dreams even during their challenging red days.”

To equip the #GenFree girls to be stewards of their menstrual health, Modess has prepared #BeNextPeriodReady kits that contain menstrual hygiene essentials such as a portable bidet, door lock, and Modess pads. 

“We have partnered with the ABS-CBN Foundation to further expand our advocacy footprint. In the short term, we will be donating #BeNextPeriodReady kits to 25 communities nationwide to help more teen girls kickstart their journey for better menstrual hygiene and health,” ended Dimayuga.
