OUCH! Without realizing the winks within the many blinks in your lifetime, you had finally hit the 40 sign. It’s a sign where your body clock began to show deteriorating symptoms of failing, mentally and physically. Medications, supplements, vitamins or even frequent visits to the doctors would become quite a routine in your life. So, are you prepared to face these situations with the right spirit? After all, no one can run away from the early signs of getting old. Through decades of wear and tear to your body parts, the first few signs would be the thinning of bones and cartilages, with related diseases namely osteoporosis, osteomalacia, osteoarthritis, costochondritis and more. Most of time, these signs of deterioration might be due to the deficiency in certain body nutrients.

I guessed age did catch up with me all too soon and it did not spare me from the painful blows as well. Recently, I had regular headaches with lower back pains and stiffen chest muscles, combined with tingling numbness on most of my joints. I suspected it was just another work hazard symptom due to my long hours of sitting down without moving about. I used heat pads, went for body massages, applied therapeutic heat rubs and even consumed paracetamol and ibuprofen as painkillers. However, those were only some temporary relief methods. Moreover, taking too many of those painkillers neither would be good for my body in long runs nor would they be the best solutions to eradicate the source of my pains. What I thought was just a minor case of lumbago ended up with more piercing pains along the spines and more stiffen joints. Through my pulse oximeter, my heart was pumping at 120bpm which is above the norm of 70-90bpm. It felt like I was about to die due to a brutal stroke. Eventually, I forced myself to pay my family doctor a visit. Though I had a clean bill of health without any sign of diabetes, the outcome sounded quite devastating as I was diagnosed with a possible early stage of osteoarthritis, a chronic condition characterized by the breakdown of the joint cartilages.

Through the years, I had somehow put my body joints on too much of mechanical stress during my athletic years and age had slowed down the self repair process. On top of being put on calcium supplements to strengthen my bones, I was also put on OsteSAMIN plus Chondroitin and MECOMIN to rebuild those self-repair deficiencies. The diet supplementary Glucosamine within the compound of the OsteSAMIN would help in influencing cartilage structure and alleviate arthritis while the added diet supplementary Chondroitin Sulphate, from animal cartilage sources, would help in strengthening weak bones, reduces high cholesterol, etc. MECOMIN contains Methylcobalamin, a neurologically-active form of vitamin B12. It helps to protect against neurological diseases and has the ability to regenerate damaged nerves in people, especially diabetics, with peripheral nerve damage.

Since undergoing the prescribed diet supplements, I barely encounter any acute attacks and can now move about freely to work on my projects with ease. It’s the best and simplest solution to osteoarthritis without the need to go through painful operations or collagen injections. These products can be easily accessible through major pharmacy counters throughout Malaysia.

I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?

On 30 August 2013, just a day before Malaysia’s 56th Independence Day, Ninetology Malaysia had officially launched its Flagship Touch Point at Plaza Low Yat, Malaysia’s Largest IT Lifestyle Mall. Ninetology’s Flagship Touch Point, a unique concept like no other, offers consumers an experiential touch point for today’s lifestyles and culture as well as a product showcase. At the Flagship Touch Point, not only would the Ninetology products be showcased, it’s a place where consumers can learn how to use a smartphone to enhance their lifestyles and interests. The flagship Touch Point will serve as a youth and culture training hub to spread the urbanite culture that is cultivated by Ninetology.

The Ninetology smartphones are not just communication tools, but a device that can advance one’s social visibility, thus opening doors to more opportunities. Eight more Flagship Touch Points within the Klang Valley will be opened this year with another nine outlets scheduled within Malaysia by next year. The Ninetology’s Flagship Touch Point is opened from 10.00am to 10.00pm daily.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held to launch the first Flagship Touch Point.

On the other hand, Ninetology Malaysia had also launched their U9 series at KL Hilton Hotel, Malaysia, earlier last month. The “Unite-as-One” power-infused technology with the urbanite profile was presented in three models: The X1, Z1, and Z1+, which are new and stylish devices engineered to meet the human needs of speed, precision and high levels of engagement.
