According to a report from Hong Kong Census and Statistics Department, the mean life span of the Hong Kong population ranked the 2nd highest worldwide, with male living to the age of 79.8 on average, while female living to the age of 86.1. By reading these statistics, one may get the impression that the health of Hong Kong people is good in general. However, when we look further into the health status of our citizens, we would then realize a lot of people actually do not belong to the category of “good health”, but “sub-health”.
From another local survey, we found that among all the citizens who rated “good” health status, more than half of them actually suffered from overweight or obesity, while one-third of them had developed hypertension. Chronic diseases such as hypertension and diabetes take a long time to develop with early onset symptoms very hard to detect. Medication or surgical operations are crucial once the symptoms have become noticeable, as delay in treatment can lead to serious complications or even death.
In one of the episodes of “Hong Kong Connection” (鏗鏘集), patients suffering from stroke and heart disease, together with people with “sub-health” health status were interviewed. They were asked to share their experiences and insights towards health management. “Prevention is better than cure” is what we always say, but have you thought about how do we put it in practice, so as to get rid of “sub-health” and regain the real “good health”?
First of all, we have to understand the causes of “sub-health”. Health is closely related to the body’s circulation. Blood is circulated around the body to supply cells and tissues with sufficient oxygen and nutrients; while lymph circulates with the aid of blood pressure. The lymphatic system is a self-help system in our body to remove excess water and metabolic waste. It also enhances our immune system by removing bacteria, viruses and dysplasia cells (potential cancerous cells), playing a very important role in preventing infections and diseases.
A well functioning lymphatic system is essential for good health. To maximize the function of the lymphatic system, a sustained and rapid blood circulation is required. However, stress, tiredness and busy life-style all hinder blood and lymph circulations, creating health problems such as muscle fatigue, insomnia, nausea and constipation. All these symptoms later work together to form a vicious cycle that rolls by itself, thereby deteriorating the body function.
To tackle these health problems, taking health supplement targeting the lymphatic system is considered as one of the best ways in boosting our immunity and maintaining good health. VITAS Capsule and VITAS Soothing Cream Gel are the only supplements available in the Hong Kong market offering a simple and direct way for lymphatic care management. To ensure top quality of the products, VITAS series are produced in France with EEC GMP standard. VITAS series are made of natural herbal ingredients that contain Vitis Vinifera (Red Grape Leaf), Bilberry, Soy Lecithin, Garlic extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape Seed) essence, Melaleuca Viridiflora essential oil and Eucalyptus Globulus essential oil. These ingredients contain a high concentration of anti-oxidants that help to strengthen the lymphatic network and to enhance blood circulation, thereby promoting the removal of body waste; relieving swollen, irritated and tired muscle and limbs; enhancing nerve and visual acuity; improving immune system and sleep quality. Taking VITAS Capsule and using VITAS Soothing Cream Gel simultaneously will provide the best synergistic benefits.
