(MENAFN Press) Al Bustan Centre and Residence, the popular hotel apartments among visiting tourists and businessmen located in the heart of Dubai, recently organized a Health Awareness Campaign for its employees on April 24, 2014. The initiative was part of its Responsible Awareness Program (RAP) conducted in partnership with uniCare Medical Centre. Dr. Lohi Babu Elpula, General Practitioner, M.B.B.S, M.D. (OSM) gave a highly comprehensive presentation on the importance of Healthy Living, Diet and Exercise.

Just as fuel is vital for a vehicle to run, Dr Lohi stressed that a balanced diet comprising right amounts of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and fiber is crucial for the body. Breakfast is the most important meal as it gives energy for the whole day, while intake of 8 to 10 glasses of water helps cleanse the body. Fats, particularly 'good fats' such as unsaturated fat found in oily fish like sardines and salmon, as well as in nuts and avocado are essential for healthy skin, heart and brain function. Dr Lohi added, that it is also important to maintain low intake of salt and transfats found in fast food and to include an aerobics routine or walking schedule daily to boost heart and physiological functions as well as to help reduce stress levels.

Moussa El Hayek, Chief Operating Officer, Al Bustan Centre and Residence said: "As the success of an organization is directly related to the health and welfare of its employees, our property undertakes a series of programs every year to educate and promote health. In our present day lifestyle, health is a factor that is often overlooked. However, as Dr. Lohi Elpula pointed out, if corrective measures are actively implemented, such as healthy living, intake of a wholesome diet and inclusion of an active and regular exercise regimen, one can definitely maintain good health of body and mind."

The Health Awareness Campaign's presentation for Al Bustan Centre's employees proved to be both highly educative and informative for one and all.

Established in 1997, Al Bustan Centre and Residence is one of the most preferred family destinations for corporate and leisure guests from the GCC markets, India, China and the CIS region especially Russia.
