Athena: Milk for Women

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!

      Thank you for that note. Calcium is for everyone 🙂 Yes, it just so happen that women has calcium content that we need but of course, Calcium is for everyone.

      1. Joey Fernandez

        the same lang ba ang benefits na makukuha sa lalaki at babaeng umiinom ng athena milk?

        1. Just Kas | Runaholic

          Athena has more calcium which is equally beneficial 🙂

  18. heidi grace

    i love athena especially when u drink it cold, it’s better taste..

  19. Break your 3 normal main meals into 5 smaller
    portion sizes – morning, snack, lunch, snack, dinner. In fact,
    I always suggest to those overweight vegetarians to keep to
    a max of 4 pounds a week so you won’t suffer loose skin post weight loss. Do not be tempted to lose weight as quickly as you can, because a crash diet will have you eating less than a thousand calories a day slowing down your metabolism.


    It does appear, however, that hypnosis can help a person achieve his or her weight loss goals.
    Avocados- Although not my favorite, are high in fats,
    the good ones. Expect to lose all that extra flabbiness as you melt off all your
    unwanted fat.

    the same lang ba ang benefits na makukuha ng lalaki at babaeng umiinom ng athena milk? I’d like to try drinking that milk.

  22. lovely cardenas

    Hi po, i knew na may anti oxidant ang athena, advisable po ba ang athena para sa mga laging puyat n tao just to stay blooming bec. of anti oxidant?

    1. Just Kas | Runaholic

      Nothing beats having to log 8 hours of sleep. Antioxidants are boosters/supplement to help your body recover but you have to help it also.

  23. lovely cardenas

    thanks posa info 🙂 pero hindi naman po kaya ako aantukin kaagad nyan?

    1. Just Kas | Runaholic

      Oh, it depends what your body needs. Listen to your body 😉

  24. Can we us it as a meal substitute?

    1. Just Kas | Runaholic

      Its always best to have a complete balanced meal but you may also have it for dinner alone 🙂

  25. I mean can we use it as a meal substitute?

  26. margarete remonte

    Hello po 🙂 Pwede na po bang uminom ng Athena Milk ang 13 years old ? Thank you po 🙂

  27. Nakakaglow po ba ng skin? Makakahelp din ba makawala ng pimples

    1. Just Kas | Runaholic | Kassy Yogini

      Hi Rose! Our body reacts differently to what we feed our body 🙂 look also into other factors that you eat, also you may check with your dermatologist.

  28. Hi again, pang 3days kona umiinom ng athena milk napansin ko, nagbubuo ung milk kahit hot water na ang ilagay ko ganun po ba talga?

    1. Just Kas | Runaholic | Kassy Yogini

      What you do is, have the powder on your mug/cup and then add small amount of hot water to dillute – mix it until it’s well blended and smooth, then add the rest of the water 🙂

  29. Hi! I just thought of reading some reviews and saw this one. I bought a pack earlier and I just finished my first cup right now. It definitely taste and smell good and the price is pretty cheap! It’ll be a part of my meal from now on and hopefully it’ll help me get rid of my pimples 🙁 Recently my hormones are messed up so I decided to put milk on my diet and saw Athena. I’m kind of overweight as well. Isn’t drinking this would increase my weight more? Thank you in advance! <3

    1. Just Kas | Runaholic | Kassy Yogini

      Hi, have you had yourself checked by your dermatologist? It’s best for you to have their professional help to rule out your pimples. It could also be the kind of food you eat but definitely milk do sure have tons of benefits 🙂 for weight, see if you’re lactose intolerance or not. One glass should be fine everyday if you’re not lactose. Others find it helpful to substitute milk for dinner.

  30. pwede na po ba ‘to sa teens na kaka’18 lang?

  31. Yvone Abigail Mabanag

    I really love Athena milk, it makes me blooming when I wake up in the morning but I stopped it because I don’t know where to buy that product here in the US. I would like to ask if you know where to buy it through web or etc? thank you!

    1. Just Kas | Runaholic | Kassy Yogini

      Maybe you can check filipino grocery stores there in the US? 🙂 or you can request it through those grocery in order for them to consider. Try also Johnny Air if they have shoppers in Manila who can have it sent to your way.
