I was anemic. I would easily get tired. Until today, I would feel dizzy for no reason. My mother told me I inherited her genes that, one way or another, have problems with the blood.
Now that I am pregnant, my doctor advised that I take iron supplements. She explained that during pregnancy, a mom’s body supplies blood and oxygen to the baby. The demand then for iron goes up with the increase in blood supply. Taking iron supplement will address this need for extra iron.
Win your day with Sangobion IRON+
My kind-hearted OB Gyne recommended I take Sangobion IRON+ (Ferrous Gluconate+Vitamins & Minerals) every morning. Sangobion IRON+ is a tailored formulation of organic iron with vitamin C, folic acid, vitamin B12, copper sulfate and manganese. All these are needed to effectively prevent and treat anemia. With the proper and regular intake of this capsule, I am assured that my baby and I are well-taken care of. I also learned from further readings that some significant health consequences of anemia include poor pregnancy outcome, increased risk of mortality in children, and reduced work productivity in adults. This mother wouldn’t want anything to happen to my baby nor do I want anything happens to me as well. I still have four boys I need to look after.
Win your day with #SulongDugongPinoy
It is reassuring to know that the supplement I take is very keen in keeping the blood healthy. In fact, it partnered with Red Cross Philippines to seriously fight iron deficiency anemia. And to accomplish his, Sangobion launched a new campaign, Sulong Dugong Pinoy.
During the event launch, Dr. Corazon Zida Gamilia, University of Santo Tomas Hospital Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology chairman, discussed the importance of healthy blood in supporting the functions of the body. She went into details the prevalence of anemia as well as its symptoms and ways to prevent and treat it.
Having been told to have suffered from anemia, I took Dr. Gamilia’s talk seriously. I took note of the five common signs of anemia to alert myself should there be a recurrence of anemia. The symptoms include paleness, fatigue, dizziness, lack of focus, and low immune system.
Of course, to show support to Sangobion’s vision of a healthy blood nation, Dr. Christie Monina Nalupta was also present at the event launch. Dr. Nalupta is the Director of the Philippine Red Cross – National Blood Services.
Ms. Ming Arroyo-Cunanan, Marketing Director of Merck Inc., led her team in introducing to guests the company’s big plans for the year. Merck Inc., by the way, is the makers of Sangobion IRON+.
I particularly love what Ms. Cunanan said. “We have been helping men and women from across the country fight anemia with Sangobion, and I’m happy to say that we’ve been successful. That’s why we think that now is the time to start elevating the bind’s purpose. It’s more than just treating anemia, it’s about maintaining healthy blood to empower every Filipino. Our vision is a blood-healthy Philippines.”
Win your day with Sarah Geronimo’s call for help
As Sangobion’s ambassador for two years now, singer-actress Sarah Geronimo also graced the event. She invited everyone to join The Sulong Dugong Pinoy event on April 8. Dubbed as the biggest blood health movement of the year, the Sulong Dugong Pinoy shares the same aim of Sangobion, a blood-healthy Philippines.
Asked why Sangobion got Geronimo as its ambassador, Cunanan shared that Merck saw harmony between the singer-actress and the brand. Geronimo embodies the image of a mentally and physically healthy and energetic millennial. Sangobion, on the other hand, not only helps one maintain a healthy immune system but also keep one’s energy level up. Likewise, the young performer believes in and uses Sangobion.
I win my everyday with Sangobion IRON+
Have I told you I was once an anemic. And I regularly take Sangobion IRON+ to counter my iron deficiency. With Sangobion, paleness, fatigue, lack of focus and low immune system are now things of the past.
