Anlene™ Introduces ACTIFIT 3X™ And GOLD 5X™ Formulation As Part Of A Balanced Diet For Musculoskeletal Health

When we work from home or stay home, we tend to be less active. As we age, it is important to take care of our bones, joints and muscles by exercising and having a balanced diet so that we can continue to stay active for years to come.

By 2040, Malaysians aged 60 years and above is expected to double from the current estimate of 10.3% of the population! Recognizing the importance for Malaysia’s aging population to maintain their musculoskeletal health, which can affect their mobility, flexibility, balance and thereby quality of life as they age, Fonterra Brands Malaysia through its adult nutrition brand Anlene™ introduces ACTIFIT 3X™ and GOLD 5X™, formulated to provide important nutrients for Malaysian adults.

The Social Wellbeing Research Centre at Universiti Malaya projected the number of Malaysians aged 60 years and above to reach 6.3 million in 2040, which is about 2 out of every 10 Malaysians. Not only is the number of our ageing population increasing rapidly, life expectancy of our silver population is expected to increase as well – men whose age reached 65 years in 2019 are expected to live a further 14.8 years to nearly 80; and women aged 65 last year are expected to live a further 17.8 years to about 82 years.

According to Dr. Nor I'zzati Saedon, who is consultant geriatric and senior lecturer of internal medicine at University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC), musculoskeletal health is one of the key factors in enabling people to live their lives independently and it starts with building and maintaining bones, muscles and joints that will continue to be strong for many years ahead. The musculoskeletal system provides form, support, stability, and movement to the body. It is made up of the bones of the skeleton, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints, and other connective tissue that supports and binds tissues and organs together.

“It is easy for middle aged adults in their 40s to not notice their own musculoskeletal health when they don’t have any condition, such as pain resulting from injury or bad posture. Being able to walk requires strength, flexibility and balance. Simple tasks like eating and dressing needs dexterity of the hands and wrists. Being able to reach up, bend over and squat down, allows people to carry out everyday activities like gardening, cooking and cleaning. Any individual would like to continue to be able to do all these without any support and assistance, especially when they progress into their 60’s and beyond,” she says.

Another expert in the musculoskeletal field is chiropractor, Mr. Calvin Shun, Founder of Osso Bone Care Chiropractic, who highlights changes in the musculoskeletal system as one ages. “Our bones may start to deteriorate from as early as 30s , losing up to 20% of bone density and our joint cartilages (the ‘cushions’ between joints) may have significant degeneration in our 40s. Our muscle functions may become weaker by losing up to 29% of its strength as we age,” he says.

“Musculoskeletal conditions, such as osteoarthritis which usually occurs in our knees can interfere with people’s ability to carry out their daily normal activities. Common symptoms include pain, stiffness and reduction of flexibility. That will reduce level of mobility, and in the long run may rob people of their independence and impairing their ability to participate in family, social and working life, and thus their quality of life could be affected,” he continues.

Shun says degeneration of bone mass, muscles or joint cartilage may accelerate with aging, but there are several common steps one could take to slow it down. He advises middle aged adults to maintain a healthy weight; exercise regularly, especially work outs that build muscles and maintain strong bones; take care of small injuries and do not allow them to develop into bigger issues that affect movements; and always remember to sit and walk with the right postures!

In terms of nutrition, Puan Megawati Suzari, Director of New Product Development, Scientific & Regulatory Affairs at Fonterra Brands Malaysia which markets Anlene™, highlights the importance for middle aged adults to care for their mobility via maintaining strong bones, joints and muscles, which are also necessary for active living and healthy aging. “On top of improving lifestyle by becoming physically active, adopting a good dietary habit is equally important,” she says.

A recent study highlights the importance of both regular exercise and milk intake as part of a balanced diet. It shows that participants who consumed 2 glasses of milk added with MFGM (Milk Fat Globule Membrane) and important nutrients plus regular exercises had 2X the improvement in flexibility, 3X the improvement in balance and 40% more improvement in muscle mass compared to control.

“Eating a balanced diet by including nutritious food is required to support adults’ musculoskeletal health. Anlene™ ACTIFIT 3X™ and GOLD 5X™ are formulated specifically to complement a balanced diet which is important to support musculoskeletal health” says Megawati.

New Anlene™ GOLD 5X™ is scientifically formulated with key nutrients that are important to support adults’ nutritional needs and has no added sugars. An important ingredient in the product is MFGM Active™, which contains MFGM - a combination of lipids and proteins that provides similar compounds to those found in joint fluids. Let’s enjoy the goodness of Anlene™ GOLD 5X™!

In each glass of milk, you can now enjoy the goodness of Anlene™ ACTIFIT 3X™ that comes with high calcium, high protein, vitamin B2, B6, B12, C, D, E and collagen, while Anlene™ GOLD 5X™ is scientifically formulated to provide the same nutrients that 3X™ offers, plus MFGM Active™ and with no added sugars.

Anlene™ ACTIFIT 3X™ and GOLD 5X™ are brought to Malaysian consumers by Fonterra Brands Malaysia, a company committed to the highest of food safety and quality standards. Both products are now available at major retailers nationwide and online at our official stores on Shopee and Lazada. Recommended retail price of Anlene™ ACTIFIT 3X™ (1kg) is RM34.65 and Anlene™ GOLD 5X™ (1kg) is at RM38.90.

Visit to take Anlene Move Check Quiz, a special tool developed to assess your mobility by performing simple physical movement. Or you can look out for Anlene Mobility Check happening in store and on ground to assess your flexibility, strength, bone and muscle mass.

Let's be healthy together with Anlene™ ACTIFIT 3X™ and Anlene™ GOLD 5X™!

Kaspersky Urges Malaysian Parents To Keep Their Kids Safer Online

Global cybersecurity company discusses with industry experts how to raise kids, who are digital natives, and suggests ways to secure them against cybercriminals

A move to ensure the new school session in 2021 can be conducted safely, all schools in Malaysia are set to remain close for the rest of the year. The Ministry of Education decided the move after considering data analysis of COVID-19 cases involving students, teachers, and their close contacts. The new school year would begin on Jan 20, 2021. In addition, the Ministry has urged the school administrators to continue the home-based learning for teachers and students.

In conjunction with home-based learning, Kaspersky hosted an online forum to discuss ways keeping the kids safer online. Featuring industry experts including: Ong Kian Yew, Chief Executive Officer at PIKOM (the National Tech Association of Malaysia); Datuk Dr. Chiam Heng Keng, Founding President of The Early Childhood Care and Education Council Malaysia; and Nazrudin Habibur Rahman, a TV Host, Actor, Entrepreneur and father of three, the conference was hosted by Deborah Priya Henry, TV host, model and co-founder of an NGO which focuses on children education.

Yeo Siang Tiong

Yeo Siang Tiong, General Manager for Southeast Asia at Kaspersky underlined that between March to May 2020, as many as 47%-51% of Malaysian kids spent most of their time online searching for learning materials related to their online classes. “It is a good sign that kids in Malaysia are using technology in a productive way. Our Digital ComfortZone 4 Report quantified the increase of internet usage because of the pandemic at up to two more hours day in Southeast Asia. 63% parents agreed that their children are using the internet more than they did on the same period as compared to last year. Our study also revealed that parents fear for their children’s online safety, but are not putting time to talk about them. Because of these, we are  glad to initiate such conversations today,” says Yeo.

For his part, Ong said that after several months of home-based learning for students and remote work for parents, both parents and students would continue to seek the right technology tools. The recently announced Malaysian Budget 2021, proposed that the relief on lifestyle expenses (such as computer, smartphone or tablet) be increased from RM2,500 to RM3,000.

“We foresee the proposed tax relief will boost the purchases of these smart devices to address any possible shortages to work from home and learn from home. At present, PIKOM members, in general, have already reported positive sales trend throughout the MCO period,” adds Ong.

Speaking on not attending schools and home-based learning, Datuk Dr. Chiam said that students miss their friends and doing school activities. For younger students, they are physically active and tend to have shorter attention span. Confinement at home and having parents who are also busy to keep kids interested, may potentially lead the young ones to frustrations, which may be demonstrated through being aggressive, intolerant, uncooperative, and disinterested.

“However, not everything is negative, as there are also many positive aspects of staying and learning at home. Parents can spend time doing things together, exercise together, or just have fun together. Our current situation enhances bonding and offers a perfect time for mothers and fathers to sit down with their kids and discuss things that matter – such as forming online habits to keep them safe.” explains Datuk.

Nazrudin, a Kaspersky user, commented that he enjoyed the stay at home and home-based learning with his kids but not without its own challenges. “I learned from Kaspersky that parents who are completely unfamiliar with video games may be tempted to completely ban their children from playing.

However, banning is not the healthiest solution. This is because children may have peers that play games at school and by disallowing them from participating, they may feel like an outcast. So there should be a check and balance in parenting.”

“To achieve this balance, I personally install safety nets such as Kaspersky Safe Kids. I agree with Datuk Dr. Chiam, as one of the most effective way is to be good role models to our kids. For #teamnazrudin, we practice no smartphone during mealtimes and have conversations related to cyber safety, when they are in doubt. We are no experts in this area, but we will learn together,” he adds.

Kaspersky has some good tips for the parents:

  • Spend more time communicating with your children about online safety measures. Tell your children what must not, under any circumstances, be published on the Internet and why.
  • Surf and learn together. See where they spend their time online and explore how to best keep them safe. Also spending time to play online games, so you can learn from each other.
  • Explain that all the sensitive information can be shared only via messengers and only with people you know in real life.
  • And yes, we do recommend parents to install a cybersecurity software like Kaspersky Total Security to protect their kids against online threats. Kaspersky is offering a three-month free trial of Kaspersky Total Security, available through this link
