Signs of Anemia and Sangobion's #SulongDugongPinoy Campaign

Photo Grabbed from Sangobion Philippines FB Page
Anemia is something that we all don't want to have. However, due to some of the things that we do, we became at risk for having one. Take me, for example, I have been working at night since 2009 - we all know how important sleep is. Now, because I have to do my job, I have no choice but to stay awake all night. Unless of course I quit and look for a daytime job (which is another story).

During the recent launch of Sangobion's Sulong Dugong Pinoy Campaign, I learned that even though I work at night, I am blessed that I'm not anemic. Nevertheless, that is not a reason that I will never have one in the future. I still need to be careful since I know very well that my chances of having anemia are high.

WebMD gives is 8 common signs of anemia that we should all be mindful of: 
Easy fatigue and loss of energy
Unusually rapid heart beat, particularly with exercise
Shortness of breath and headache, particularly with exercise
Difficulty concentrating
Pale skin
Leg cramps

Sangobion IRON+ (Ferrous Gluconate+Vitamins & Minerals) has always been serious about fighting iron deficiency anemia.

To accomplish this, Sangobion is launching a new campaign, Sulong Dugong Pinoy, and kicked it off with a media launch held recently.

The event featured speakers like the University of Sto. Tomas Hospital’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology chairman, Dr. Corazon Zaida N. Gamilla, who discussed the importance of healthy blood in supporting the functions of the body, the prevalence of anemia, its symptoms, and ways to prevent and treat it. Also present was Dr. Christie Monina Nalupta – Director of the Philippine Red Cross - National Blood Services, who graced the event to support Sangobion’s vision of a healthy blood nation.

Meanwhile, it was Ming Arroyo-Cunanan, Marketing Director of Merck (makers of Sangobion IRON+), who focused on the brand’s relevance and big plans.

“We have been helping men and women from across the country fight anemia with Sangobion, and I’m happy to say that we’ve been successful. That’s why we think that now is the time to start elevating the brand’s purpose. It’s more than just treating anemia, it’s about maintaining healthy blood to empower every Filipino. Our vision is a blood-healthy Philippines.” Cunanan said of Sangobion’s plans this year.

The launch’s biggest guest was none other than singer Sarah Geronimo, who has been part of the Sangobion family for two years now.

  1. It's good that Sangobion is popularizing prevention of anemia. I had anemia in high school, and it really affected my studies. And Sarah G is a great brand ambassador!

    1. I agree! I think she's a great person for this product and campaign.

  2. Kahit nagpahinga si Sarah G para magstudy, tuloy-tuloy pa rin ang endorsement niya. I always have graveyard shift when I was still working sa BPO. It is one thing na ayaw ko din, so di ko siya namimiss. hehehe!

    1. haha! Ako sis, di parin nakakaalis. lol. Night shift parin even now. haha.

  3. I have 4 out of 5 signs of anemia as you've stated here sis. Waaah!

    Magpapacheck-up na nga ako and I will consider Sangobion for my Iron supplement.
    Thanks for sharing sis :)

    1. You're welcome, sis! Ouch sa 4 out of 5 sis, mukhang kailangan mo nga magpa check. Hope all is well.

  4. I used to work in graveyard shift din for couple of years. I'm grateful 'coz ngayon hindi na. But that doesn't exempt us dba? I want to try this din soon.

    1. That's great to hear, sis! Ako, graveyard parin. But you're also right, that doesn't guarantee na di na magkaka-anemia.

  5. I would like to thanks my Doctor in Ozamis and here in FGH (Fairview General Hospital) kasi same lang sila ng niresita sakin para sa mababa kong dugo. So far hiyang ako dito, laging antukin at laging gutom hahahha! pero I think kaylangan ko pang magtake hanggang mawawala na ang hilo at bumalik na ang normal bp ko. Ps. Sayang di naka selfie kay Sarah! hahahaha!

    1. Hahaha! Keri lang 'yan gaw. Speaking of anemia, I kenat believe na mas ako di anemic tapos kayo ni chen2 pa tuloy ang meron. haha.

  6. Been used to having low blood. Now that I am pregnant, I see to it to regularly take my iron supplement. Hirap na kapag may baby na involved sa health.
