Soy milk was found to be the most comparable to cow’s milk in terms of overall nutrients balance

When it comes to protein and calcium replenishment, most people will immediately think of cow’s milk. After all, it has been heavily advertised by milk and dairy companies on the amount of calcium and protein it contains, and its role in strengthening bones.

What was less promoted is soybean milk, which in fact contains nothing less than the amount of protein and calcium a cow’s milk has. And one does not have to think of lactose intolerance, the saturated fats, cholesterol, and antibiotics a cow’s milk has.

A recent article by Times Magazine mentioned, “Soy milk was found to be the most comparable to cow’s milk in terms of overall nutrients balance”, and “Soy milk even contains phytonutrients that have been shown to have cancer-fighting properties.”

So what is your choice?

My choice naturally will be [Nutrifresh] and [Soupde] as they have a high concentration of soybeans 🙂 Nutrifresh is my daily morning drink as it provides me not only with the basic quality plant-based protein but also 13 different types of fruits and veggies for my macro and micronutrients. Soup de is the soup base that I will use when I DIY my mee hoon soup or mee sua soup for my lunch. The taste is addictive and I do not even have to think of adding much ingredients to my meal as it already has 11 different kinds of vegetables in it! ^_^ (soybean, white radish, carrot, pear, broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprout, radish leaf, spinach, cauliflower, green bell pepper).


Our Gut Microbiome

Our gut microbiome of late has gained much attention. More Research has shown that having a diverse gut microbiome makes one more resilient and capable of fighting pathogens and diseases. There could be a link between declining microbial diversity and the increased incidence rate of immune and metabolic diseases such as asthma, allergies, diabetes, and obesity.

Just like how humans have different dietary preferences, our microbes also need a diverse range of nutrients to thrive. We need to include in our diet a wide range of fruits, and foods that are high in fiber.

Sometimes it is really difficult to ensure I get enough varieties of fruits and veggies a day. I am glad to find convenience from the following healthy wholefood products…

Nutrifresh with more than 13 different fruits and veggies at less than S$2
[Digeston] with various healthy plants that allow my body to produce its own good bacteria.

Instead of going for probiotics which may have just over five strains of good bacteria, I make my choice on freeze-dried wholesome plant foods for my body to produce the needed diverse good bacteria, which can provide beyond hundreds of good bacteria strains. What about you? 😀

The above products serve as good weight management for me too, hehe


Nutrifresh and Refresh Mix!

I don’t usually mix powder products together to drink… So that I can enjoy each of the beverages as they are 😍 and at the same time this will ensure that I drink ample water. Except for some products which I think they taste definitely much better with a mix!

Not many, but one of which is Refresh 🤭 It tastes so nice with Nutrifresh 😋.

Nutrifresh provides the basic nutrients needed for a day and Refresh for healthy kidneys!

Nutrifresh is an important beverage for my start of the day. Because it contains more than 13 different types of fruits and veggies in a sachet, it provides me the basic nutrients for the day. The various real food components contain all the basic needed minerals, vitamins, fiber, protein, calcium, phytochemicals for the body.

Nutrifresh ingredients at just S$1.85 per day

Refresh nourishes our kidneys. According to Ministry of Health, kidney failure is a growing disease in Singapore. National Kidney Foundation (NKF) statistics revealed that there are about five new kidney failure patients a day and one new dialysis patient every five hours 🙁

Living in the current era where most foods are heavily processed and added with unknown additives, preservatives, high sodium and lacking of real nutrients, these definitely will cause a strain to our filter organs – the kidneys.

Refresh ingredients

For me, I definitely go for prevention at just 75cents a day 🙂


Testimonial: My mother-in-law!

Happy to receive this testimonial!

Article contributed by Valerie Yeo.

So happy with the improvement my mother-in-law has, after about 11 months of her taking E.Excel products ?

She looks significantly younger and much radiant in person, that I decided to take the latest photo and placed them together for comparison.  No filters involved!

Could you see the difference? ? She took: Millennium + Nutrifresh

In my course of Nutrition and Exercise Science_Part 3: Nutrition Adequacy

I was reading The Straits Times when I came across this headline – “Take steps to prevent falls“, dated 1 April 2019.

This reminded me of an assignment given to us on the topic of Nutrition Adequacy.  Similar to the article, it was targeting the elderly’s health.

It was stated in the article that the number of hip fractures in Singapore is around 2500 per year.  And 20% from this group dies within a year 🙁  This is quite a high percentage…

Due to their immobility, their muscles get wasted and they also get complications such as bed sores, pneumonia, urinary tract infections, constipation and many more; all which threaten their lives.

Other than preventing osteoporosis to avoid fractures and higher chance, hip fractures, it is also important to prevent falls.  Why do the elderly fall?  

Poor vision, muscle weakness are some reasons and chronic health conditions such as cardiovascular diseases with high or low blood pressure can cause dizziness.

Sarcopenia is a disease associated with muscle-loss with ageing.  With the loss of muscles, it is easy for them to fall.  To lower the rate of muscle-loss, strength (resistance) exercise, as well as sufficient protein intake is important.

“Protein is the king of muscle food. The body breaks it down into amino acids, which it uses to build muscle.” –

However, again due to ageing, some begin to encounter difficulties chewing and/or swallowing of their food.  They tend to avoid fruits and vegetables, go for refined food such as white bread, rice, noodles that are easier to chew, but clearly in lack of vitamins and protein found in vegetables and legumes.

As one gets older, the calories needed is also less due to a drop in basal metabolism and lean muscle mass.  Their diet thus needs to be nutrient-rich.  Plant-based over animal-based are preferred as the former has no cholesterol, lesser calories and saturated fat.

Nutritional Immunology products such as Nutrifresh, Aromantic, Vegecolor become a very good wholefood beverages to supplement their diet for protein, vitamins, phytochemicals, fiber, antioxidants and calcium.

One can also refer to the Health Promotion Board – Dietary Guidelines for Elderly to understand more about elderly nutrition.

Last but not least, the elderly regard food as a family; the togetherness that equates to quality of life and eating well.
