Don’t Eat Your Heart Out: Understanding the ‘Holiday Heart Syndrome’

 This year, we have been faced with an unprecedented pandemic which has taught us never to take our health for granted. But as we near its end and gear up for the holidays, there are still plenty of things to watch out for when it comes to our health.

 “That is because while the holidays are a time for merriment and indulgence, it has also been linked to a high incidence of heart attacks, stroke, and rising blood pressure, leading to the phenomenon called ‘Holiday Heart Syndrome,” said Dr. Amal Makhloufi Benchouk, The Country Lead of Sanofi Philippines.  [1][2]


But what is it about the most joyous time of the year that causes this unfortunate spike in cardiovascular-related health concerns and how do we avoid it?

Overindulging

“During the holiday season, many of us tend to overindulge or consume food excessively. Unfortunately, a significant amount of these may be high in sodium content,” Amal forewarns.

Why is this a problem? For some people, eating too much salty food may cause their blood pressure to rise. However, this shouldn’t deter you from indulging during the holidays, but just learning to be mindful of what you eat and avoiding excess salt can help minimize the risk for heart problems.

Frequent binge-drinking

With holiday get-togethers come frequent social drinking. Just like the overindulgence of food, the festive season is often marked by the consumption of copious amounts of alcohol.

“The danger of binge-drinking as frequently as we do during the holidays is that it can lead to atrial fibrillation which is characterized by an abnormal heart rhythm that may increase the risk of stroke, heart attack, and heart failure,” she warns.

Festive fatigue

The holidays bring with it added excitement and fatigue. For some, this can mean going from one party to another, night after night, until the wee hours of the day, leading to very little sleep which adds extra stress on their hearts. Combined with binge-drinking and overindulging, and one can be very susceptible to an unhealthy mix of triggering factors. “That is why moderation is key, especially when it comes to indulging in salty foods, alcoholic beverages, or knowing when to call it a night,” the Sanofi country lead explains.

Know the risks

Going into the holidays, it is definitely crucial to be aware of any potential risk factors or pre-existing conditions that can affect your health. If you are currently overweight and/or a heavy smoker or have a history with conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, or chronic kidney disease then you or your family may be at a higher risk of experiencing heart problems, so it is best to be mindful of your health and keep watch of your holiday activities.

When should you get help

In the event that you start feeling symptoms such as chest pains, you should already start calling for help. Don’t forgo treatment just because you don’t want to spoil the holiday mood. It’s always better to be on the safe side when it comes to your health.

“The greatest gift that you can give to your family is the gift of health so we must encourage everyone to live a healthy and active lifestyle,” Amal intimated. “This is why we continue to educate Filipino families to have a better understanding of the disease, beyond the medicine, to empower every single person for self-monitoring and the improvement of their lifestyle. This is our commitment to building a healthier Philippines."

 


Ben&Ben music video of KathNiel-starrer “Sa Susunod na Habang Buhay”

 


Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla stars as a romantic couple stuck in a time loop in the new music video for Ben&Ben’s “Sa Susunod na Habang Buhay.”

Helmed by the band’s resident director Jorel Lising and written by Gaya Sa Pelikula creator Juan Miguel Severo, the song’s visual narrative explores the complicated relationship dynamics of two lovers who have lost and found each other in a fated cycle of events.

Complicated love in a time loop

Severo reveals that “Sa Susunod na Habang Buhay,” a song that deals with the “possibility of another life to succeed in love,” complements the KathNiel starrer that he has in mind. Having written Hintayan ng Langit, an evocative piece that examines eternal romance in the afterlife, Severo decided to do away with another reincarnation story for his interpretation of the material.

“Then it hit me, what about a couple stuck in a time loop?”, the prolific writer points out. “What if every time one dies, they go back to their first date with one of them carrying memories from their previous run? It took the band, Direk, and I a couple of zoom calls, brainstorming ideas to compound on that concept and get everything laid out before I presented it to KathNiel.”

Severo’s writing lends to a beautifully understated film that allows KathNiel to tackle their role with nuanced sensitivity and depth. To make it more impactful on screen, music video director Jorel Lising makes use of non-liner, fragmented storytelling as a way to capture the couple’s memories in its undiluted form. Lising adds, “It all comes from the content of the song - it’s a strong piece that speaks about love lost and an intense sense of longing, so the process of developing the treatment and Severo’s script came from that. The challenge for us was to maximize the emotion based on that kind of narrative.”

Working with KathNiel

According to the band’s co-vocalist and acoustic guitarist Miguel Benjamin, the journey behind the music video was both a dream and a serendipitous sequence of events. "About two months ago, an interesting exchange came up while our keyboardist Patricia Lasaten was working on the music of Juan Miguel Severo’s Gaya Sa Pelikula,” says Miguel. “As a way of showing appreciation when we offered our song Ride Home to the series, Juan Miguel graciously offered us in return to write a script for the ‘Sa Susunod Na Habang Buhay’ MV, and pitch it to KathNiel, as they are good friends. We pushed through, and to our surprise, they loved both the idea of working with all of us and the script. This was a big thing for us because we never expected that these great artists would be open to doing a music video with us, given their stature and busy schedules.”

Despite the time constraints, Lising didn’t experience difficulty working with one of the biggest love teams in recent memory. The nine-piece collective’s frequent collaborator recounts that he only has few adjustments for every take, thanks to KathNiel’s astounding professionalism and craft.We didn’t have a whole lot of time with them, but they definitely possess star power quality on camera. Every frame we took of them has a strong presence that comes with lots of experience, especially since they’ve been acting for so long now.”

The music video of Ben&Ben’s Sa Susunod na Habang Buhay” is out now via Sony Music Philippines.

These Filipina Celebrities Share Their New-Found Secret Ingredient in Maintaining Their Damage-Free, Long Hair

 If you randomly survey Filipinas on their gold standard of beautiful hair, chances are, you will get the answer of long, straight, and shiny hair. In the Philippines, long hair is put on a pedestal (hence the compliment haba ng hair), not solely for its beauty, but also because of how challenging it is to maintain.

The truth about long hair is that it’s more susceptible to damage and breakage. Women who grow their hair long would have more frequent trips to the salon to get a trim or a treatment just to keep hair damage at bay.

But the lifelong question is — is this really the fate of women who love to keep their locks long?

New Pantene Long Hair Solutions just unlocked the secret to damage-free hair

 Pantene has just unlocked this age-old secret ingredient that keeps long hair beautiful and strong, and it lies in the power of the rice oil essence. From a 2000-year old Japanese tradition of using rice water to wash hair to keep long hair beautiful, Pantene distilled and extracted the rice oil essence in Wakayama, home to the Aragi-jima Rice Terraces, and blended this ingredient with its Pro-Vitamin formula.

The New Pantene Long Hair Solutions with Pro-Vitamin Formula & Japanese Rice Oil Essence contains Pro-Vitamin B5 to help fortify the lipids inside each hair strand while the Japanese Rice Oil Essence strengthens its outer coating. It ultimately repairs damaged hair and keep it protected from external factors, allowing the hair to grow longer, stronger, and beautifully smoother.

Take a look at these Pantene girls who discovered the #PanteneLongHairSolutions that finally gave them the freedom from their hair-damage worries.

Sofia Andres shares on her Instagram post, “Growing up, I always found maintaining long, healthy hair difficult to achieve because I thought long hair came with split ends and damage. But now, I’m excited that I can finally grow my hair without worrying about damage!”


 Now a believer on the power of rice oil essence, Gabbi Garcia posted, “It has the power to not just repair hair damage, but also PREVENT hair damage even before it happens because it strengthens your hair from inside out.”

Ry Velasco pairs her Pantene Long Hair Solutions Total Damage Care Shampoo with her trusted 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner, “Super amazed by how this rice oil ingredient can really moisturize my hair and scalp. I usually pair this with the 3 Minute Miracle Total Damage Care Conditioner so that I can have long, healthy, and smooth hair all day.”

Pantene Long Hair Solutions gives Filipinas the freedom to grow their hair long and strong just the way they’ve always wanted. The constant fear of having hair damage and split ends will finally be put to rest, and now the only thing they need to worry about is having great hair that is too beautiful to cut.
