Sangobion Promotes Iron Deficiency Awareness with Salaminkera

JULY 2013

According to the World Health Organization, iron deficiency anemia is the most common nutritional disorder in the entire world, particularly among women and children. In fact, three out of every five women of reproductive age are prone to iron deficiency, although they may not necessarily be aware of their body’s iron shortage.

Iron is a necessary element for optimum health. It is needed to replace blood loss during menstrual cycles, cure bouts of dizziness caused by anemia, correct weariness and fatigue, help gain more focus & concentration, and aid in periods of gestation, lactation, pregnancy, and such periods surrounding childbirth. It is also required for the normal functioning of the immune system.

Some sources of iron in our daily diet include red meat, eggs, liver, oatmeal,nuts, as well as food supplements and formulations like Sangobion.

To promote awareness on the wondrous effects that iron has on the body, Sangobion proudly presented a one-woman show called “Salaminkera,” an educational and entertaining performance of the well-loved comedienne, Giselle Sanchez. This empowering event was held on June 9th at the Lower Ground Level, Building A of SM Megamall.

Giselle Sanchez—loving wife, doting mother, and established career woman—is the epitome of a true Sangobion woman. Giselle has been a regular Sangobion user since she gave birth to her second child, and so she understands the benefits the organic iron supplement offers firsthand.

“These days, women play multiple roles. These overlapping tasks can take its toll on your health, making you haggard and tired, especially if you’re breastfeeding. Women need balance juggling all of these acts. Drained energy will leave women feeling empty and tired. Luckily, iron supplement Sangobion is there to help us,” shared the multi-talented comedienne.
