PANSALT® will take part in the 18th Asia Food Expo on Sept. 23-26, 2009 at the World Trade Center. Visit the PANSALT® booth and learn more about the healthier, tastier, low-sodium salt!
Valentine’s Day kicked-off at Harbor Square, CCP Complex in Roxas Boulevard with more than 200 men and women of all ages joining the fitness and wellness activities organized by PANSALT®. Participants grooved with aerobic steps choreographed by fitness instructors from 6am-9am.
PANSALT ® is exclusively distributed in the Philippines by Accord International, Inc. According to Product Manager, Ria Mateo, they entered into an exclusive distributorship agreement with Finland-based Oriola-KD for a breakthrough product for Filipino consumers.
PANSALT ® only has 56% -57% Sodium Chloride compared to common salt which is 98%-100% Sodium Chloride. It has the same good taste and technological properties as common salt and has no bitter aftertaste, characteristic of other low-Sodium salts.
Wellness takes a beating when people overindulge on food that their palates crave for. Salt can be the number one favorite in its various forms: common salt, bagoong, soy sauce, fish sauce and all sorts of “sawsawan” concoctions. According to “Doktor ng Bayan” Rey Salinel, most Filipinos consume up to 10g of salt or Sodium Chloride in its various forms, an excessive amount compared to the recommended daily dose of 1,000-2,500 mg. High-dose intake of common salt leads to higher risks of developing high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, stomach cancer, osteoporosis, and kidney disease, among others.
Various studies show that the harmful effects of Sodium Chloride can be decreased or even eliminated if our diet is rich in Potassium and Magnesium. Adequate Potassium intake lowers blood pressure and is protective against stroke and cardiac arrhythmias.
At the Hearts day event, Dr. Salinel explained how the heart suffers from excessive Sodium Chloride intake. “The human body needs only very small amounts of both Sodium and Chloride. Common salt is made up of 98-100% Sodium Chloride, which is known to be the most significant cause of high blood pressure, otherwise known as arterial hypertension. Even a slight surge in blood pressure increases the risks of coronary cases and other serious cardiovascular diseases, such as heart attacks, strokes, or heart failure.”
Dr. Salinel said that timely change in lifestyle will help save the health of people in pre-hypertensive conditions from escalating into hypertension. Once hypertension is established, a person is supposed to start taking maintenance prescription drugs and the medication is for life. In his talk during Hearts Day, he cited the importance of taking Sodium Chloride, which includes common salt, in moderation. “A good substitute,” he said, “is PANSALT ®, a perfect low sodium mineral salt that tastes like common salt and contains Potassium, Magnesium, Lysine and Iodine.”
PANSALT ® is made nutritive by the essential minerals Potassium and Magnesium – two important minerals for a healthy heart, not contained in common salt. More than reducing Sodium Chloride intake, it also markedly enhances the positive effect of blood pressure lowering medications.
During the event, Dr. Salinel also offered free medical consultations and health tips to participants. “Diet watch; meaning no excessive intake of common salt and sugar but increased intake of fiber rich foods such as vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as avoidance of bad cholesterol inducing substances,” he emphasized.
The second health tip Dr. Salinel cited is exercise – about 20-30 minutes daily or at least 3-4 times a week. However, those with medical conditions should first get clearance from their doctor as to the extent and type of exercise their body can take.
The third is to be drug free and to maintain moderation in everything, including alcohol intake. One to two glasses of red wine or champagne is good for the heart but intoxication damages the liver and destroys general health.
Dr. Salinel’s parting words: “Take care of your health and your health will take care of you. If a person is spared from developing hypertension, he is spared from being doomed to a lifetime of having to take medication.”
PANSALT ® is available at selected Mercury Drug and Watson’s outlets and in the following establishments: Cash & Carry, Cherry Foodarama, Eunilaine Foodmart, Landmark Supermarket, Makati Supermart (Alabang), NCCC Supermarket (Davao), Oro Rama Supermarket (CDO), Palms Country Club (Alabang), Pioneer Centre Supermart, Robinsons Supermarket, Royal Subic Duty Free, Rustan’s Supermarket, Shoppersville (Katipunan), Shopwise, Tropical Hut Foodmart, Unimart.

– BANGON NA BAYAN, 4:00-5:00pm with Joel Reyes Zobel
Hypertension is a silent killer. It heightens one’s risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and stroke that could ultimately lead to death.
“An estimated 17.5 million people died from CVDs in 2005, representing 30% of all global deaths,” says the World Health Organization (WHO). “Of these deaths,” WHO continues, “an estimated 7.6 million were due to coronary heart disease and 5.7 million were due to stroke.”
In the Philippines, an estimated 122,400 lives were claimed by CVDs in 2002. In a study published in The Philippine Journal of Neurology, Dr. Navarro observes that stroke affects 486 out of 100,000 Filipinos. That is roughly half a million of us.
Despite these figures, many Filipinos still do not understand the disease, and therefore, fail to respond to it appropriately.
In an effort to raise awareness on hypertension, PANSALT initiated a World Heart Day celebration in Harbor Square of the CCP complex last September 28. It gathered men and women for aerobic exercise and free consultations with “doctor ng bayan,” Dr. Rey Salinel.
“Heart disease and stroke remain top killers in the Philippines. This is attributable to an unhealthy lifestyle and probably a lack of awareness on their prevention,” comments Dr. Salinel.
However, hypertension can be controlled and prevented, and therefore its complications like heart disease and stroke can also be averted. The cures lie in regular exercise, proper rest, and healthy eating.
Dr. Salinel provided the following tips at the World Heart Day celebration:
- Make it a habit to check your blood pressure and pulse regularly. The top number of your blood pressure should be less than 140 while a normal pulse rate ranges between 66 and 82. If your figures are higher than these, consult your doctor.
- Watch your weight. If you are overweight, take steps to lose the extra pounds.
- Use your heart. Do aerobic exercises to lower blood pressure and prevent hypertension.
- Put out that cigarette. Cigarettes have no health benefits and only increase your risk of stroke.
- Get ample rest. Get a good night’s sleep and avoid stress.
- Eat healthy. Increase your intake of high-fiber foods such as fruits and vegetables. Stay away from high-sodium and fatty foods.
The good-tasting, low-sodium salt—PANSALT®—made its Philippine debut in a riot of flavor, fun, and information. At a sumptuous Filipino lunch buffet at the Boracay Room of the Hotel Philippine Plaza on October 25, PANSALT® was used to season the food and no one could tell the difference between PANSALT® and ordinary salt. That’s because it is salt—only healthier, because PANSALT® contains only 56 – 57 percent sodium chloride.
Among the highlights of the launch were a cooking demo by the sexy chefs Rachel and Barni Alejandro, who, besides preparing Oriental Salad using PANSALT®, spoke on the virtues of eating healthy and recommended the PANSALT® option for the health-conscious; and the enlightening talk by Dr. Gregorio Patacsil Jr., a leading cardiologist, on why the human body needs only small doses of sodium chloride. In a word, PANSALT®, the product of Finnish technology, is the healthier choice because it is virtually devoid of the harmful effects of common salt while tasting no different, and it is rich in essential minerals magnesium and potassium. Those on special dietary regimens say, for hypertension or diabetes, can also use PANSALT®, which has been reported to remarkably improve the therapeutic effects of drugs for the treatment of high blood pressure.
This is good news, considering that health experts have long cautioned against the overuse of salt, which has been linked to high blood pressure and its complications, such as strokes, heart attacks, and kidney damage. Statistics from the National Nutrition & Health Survey (2003-04) claim that 22 out of 100 Filipinos are hypertensive. The same survey reports that among 20-29-year-old Filipinos, nearly 4 out of 10 are hypertensive and require a lifestyle change to prevent progression to hypertension.
