Puma Faas 100

I choose FAAS 100!  Just realized that it has been a year that we've covered FAAS 200 here. After 12 long months, FAAS 100 still hasn't seen the light of day. What's taking them so long? Your guess is as good as mine. I suspect that they are just waiting for the barefoot/minimalist market share to grow. Unfortunately, the latest data revealed that it remained a niche market. This is evident with their move on releasing cushioned shoes last year instead of pursuing FAAS 100/150

It seems that the long wait will be over. Stumbled upon a youtube video about FAAS 100 R. Coming out next month. Woohoo! It will still sport a highly breathable and see-through upper, and PUMA's proprietary lightweight foam. The latest offering will be less than 6oz. Same class weight as VFF Speed, Zem Gear Terra, Merrell Bare Access and adiPure Trainer. Will retail at $95-$100. Can't wait to see it on the shelves of a local store



To make things more exciting, PUMA also decided to bring out a trail version (Puma Faas 100 TR)

Glucosamine On Our Fave Drink

I injured my knee while training for a major event. Boo! T'was a painful process of recovery not because of the injury itself but because of the downtime it entailed. Forced to lower down my mileage else risk of inviting a longer recovery period. I consulted a runner/doctor about my case and he mentioned that I take glucosamine. I was dumbfounded. The word never existed in my running vocabulary. Asked several sports enthusiasts and learned that it is an essential supplement. Did some research and eventually bought one online

Having strong bones and joints are indispensable in order to be athletic, fit and healthy. Good thing Anlene also recognized the value of glucosamine and created a new milk formula targeted for recreational (like me!) and professional athletes. Now we don't have to purchase a separate bottle/container. We'll now be able to enjoy our favorite drink, with twice as much as calcium, and have healthy joints thru added glucosamine. Anlene Total gives us the security that we need to make sure that our bones and joints are well taken care of

PRESS RELEASE
Anlene, the Expert in Bone Nutrition, is the leading bone health milk brand in the Philippines. Its products are enriched with a scientifically formulated complex of essential bone strengthening nutrients and provide twice as much calcium as regular milk. A research published in 2009 showed that Anlene is clinically proven to reduce bone breakdown within 4 weeks

Through the efforts of Fonterra, maker of Anlene, bone health awareness continues to be significantly relevant and the role of high-calcium milk in Osteoporosis prevention is clearly established

However, many Filipinos may not realize that joints too, experience daily wear and tear. Joints provide the lubrication between two moving bones. However, the joint cartilage which protects the ends of our bones can wear out. Glucosamine, an essential building block of joint cartilage, is naturally found in the body. It is produced by the body but the ability to do so is reduced with age. With this, even everyday pressure from usual activities like walking, climbing up and down the stairs, may cause degeneration of joints or Osteoarthritis

From the Expert in Bone Nutrition comes a new formula containing twice the Calcium vs. regular milk and added Glucosamine to help protect not only your bones but your joints, as well! Anlene Total’s unique combination including Nano-calcium & Glucosamine helps maintain strong bones AND helps fortify cartilage in joints, protecting them against damage caused by everyday physical activities

New Anlene Total helps provide the necessary protection to support bone and joint health and allows us to continue living life to the fullest. Keep on moving with Anlene Total now!
