With the current pandemic situation, we have taken our program online to reach more people through our virtual events. Since the beginning of large-scale restrictions last March, Anlene has always assisted the public to stay active at home, through digital challenges such as Move at home, Yoga Challenge, Haornas 14 Days Challenge, and socializing the importance of nutrition to maintain freedom of move today and in the future.

“Anlene’s ’Love Your Bones, Protect Your Future’ program is an extension of National steoporosis Day which aims to raise public awareness of the risk of Osteoporosis and its prevention, all in an effort to improve the quality of life with healthy bones, joints, and muscles into the future. Through this program, we hope to give people accurate, health expert-verified information about bones, joints, and muscles through the platforms they use in their daily life,” added Rhesya Agustine.

DR. Dr. Fiastuti Witjaksono, MKM, MS, Sp.GK-K, Ketua Umum Pengurus Besar PEROSI, explained, “Osteoporosis is a disease where the density and quality of bones are reduced, especially in the wrist, hip, and most commonly in the spine. Osteoporosis is called a ‘silent disease’, where many people don’t know they have osteoporosis until the first fracture. Based on data from the International Osteoporosis Foundation, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men over the age of 50 will suffer a fracture due to osteoporosis, and every 3 seconds there is a fracture due to this disease.[1] People need to be made aware of osteoporosis risks and programs such as the Anlene “Love Your Bones, Protect Your Future” help to realize an Osteoporosis-free Indonesia.”

 

DR. Dr. Fiastuti Witjaksono, MKM, MS, Sp.GK-K added, “Living a healthy lifestyle and fulfilling your daily nutrition is key to prevent Osteoporosis. Protein, calcium, and vitamin D can help to maintain healthy bones, joints, and muscles. We can find these nutrients in our daily foods and beverages, including chicken and eggs which are high in protein, and tofu and milk are good sources of calcium and vitamin D. We recommend refraining from consuming alcohol, smoking, or drinking too much coffee and soda to maximize calcium absorption and new bone formation.”
