A Consultant and advocate of healthy living, fitness and lifestyle, Dr. Bisi Abiola, has said that adequate intake of milk fortifies the human body against diseases and supplies essential nutritional requirement for healthy living.
The nutrition expert who spoke at the official launch of Olympic Milk rebranding campaign tagged, “Winning with Olympic: The Healthy Choice” which held recently in Lagos, described milk as a wholesome food that is highly rich in calcium, Potassium, riboflavin, magnesium, Zinc, protein, iodine, phosphorus and vitamins B2 and B12,” adding that milk, “is nature’s wellness gift to mankind.”
At the event, Nutricima Limited unveiled its new Olympic Powdered Milk and ready-to-drink Olympic Apple Flavoured bottled drink.
The new, highly rich and nutritious Olympic Powdered Milk comes in 16g single serve sachet and 300g family pack, while the grab-and-go Olympic Apple Flavoured food drink is available in 500ml bottle.
Abiola refuted the popular misgiving by adults that milk is meant for children because it helps in their formative years. She said: “Milk is well known to guarantee a balanced diet and is healthier than carbonated drinks hence the need for its regular intake.”
She stated that the repackaged Olympic Milk “is highly beneficial to children and adults alike. The milk is low in cholesterol and therefore helps to keep the body fit and healthy when consumed appropriately, and complemented with other basic activities such as avoiding stress, eating right, walking out, among others. “Ordinarily, the liver produces 100mg of cholesterol in a day, an amount which is considered adequate for the body to stay fit.
