We grew up with specialized milk  but as we age, we also outgrew and bid farewell to what we’re familiar with; we are left with options such as non-fat, low-fat, soy milk, skimmed and 3% percent milk products which are pretty much expensive in the market hence women don’t get to indulge to supplementing our bodies to necessary nutrition for strong bones.

Women’s Health gave boxes of Athena milk during the Fun Run presser which had me curious on its difference in the market. It claims beauty benefits – a first of its kind in the milk category.

“Beautrition” for the modern-day Filipina, in Unilab’s term caters to today’s Filipino multi-tasker women who faces professional and personal challenges every day.

According to research: Athena promises more benefits than any other skimmed milk brand in the Philippines by offering Beautrition – a combination of beauty and nutrition that gives women a triad of benefits to help them win their everyday battles:

Beautiful Skin. Athena provides anti-oxidants (Vitamin A, E & Zinc) to help women’s skin become healthier and more beautiful.
Strong Bones. Athena is high in calcium to help strengthen women’s bones.
Slim Figure. Athena is low in fat to help women maintain a slimmer figure.

Now, aside from those facts. The taste is more important than what’s on context. When I tried a glass to jumpstart my day, I didn’t have to add any sweetener to make the milk be  less creamy. For the kind of girl who’s trying to control her sugar, I quickly read through the nutritional contents and found out that Athena milk has sucralose, which is synonymous to splenda. Truly, it also caters to diabetics .(Im not diabetic though but prevention is better than cure). No Stress!

It tastes good. thank heavens I have 3 boxes of it! Thank you Women’s Health and Unilab. Women, you need to switch. This is definitely for every Filipina.

Happy International Women’s Month!
