Jakarta, 10th April 2011 – PT Merck Tbk in collaboration with Solidaritas Istri Kabinet Indonesia Bersatu (SIKIB) encourage people to exercise in Neurobion Activehood Playground with the theme “Aktifkan dan Ajak Main Badanmu! (Activate and Ask your Body to Play)” in Silang Barat Daya, Monas, Jakarta. A series of childhood traditional games such as galasin, bentengan, egrang, bola gebok, gatrik, engklek, tak jongkok, and other modern games will be played in this event. The event will be attended by more than 10,000 participants and will be enlivened by a series of other exercise programs like gymnastics and fun bike. A world record for the largest category of participants playing Galasin will be recorded in Museum Rekor Indonesia (MURI) or Indonesia Record Museum as 1,000 people will participate.
Consumer Health Care Division Director of PT Merck Tbk, Nils Moen said, “Through Neurobion Activehood Playground it is hoped that people will be more concern on the importance of exercise for health”.
Mrs. Ratna Djoko Suyanto, the Chairwomen of SIKIB II, stated that SIKIB fully supports the Neurobion Activehood Playground because this event is in line with their vision to increase the prosperity and health of Indonesia citizens.
The other purpose of this event is to participate in the traditional games of Indonesia which have many benefits to nerve health. For example Galasin, which is also known as Gobak Sodor, is a game which has optimal function in every movement such us arm nerves, thighs, and waist. Beside Galasin, the Egrang game, or Tilako, requires body balance while playing. Another benefit of traditional games that probably is not been known, is exemplified in Tak Jongkok. Foot muscles are widely used so each movement leads to all nerves becoming more flexible and the body becoming healthier. In addition, it helps to prevent muscle stiffness, cramps and tingling sensations.
As there are several benefits in every movement of the traditional games, Neurobion White Tablet is backing the event to raise awareness of these exercises that involve nerves, flexibility and balance, which are all very useful to improve the health of body nerves.
Feni Herawati, Head of Marketing of PT Merck Tbk’s Consumer Health Care Division added, “The activities will be maximum if supported by exercising regularly and consuming sufficient Neurotrophic vitamins”. Neurobion White Tablet falls under the category of Neutrophic vitamin (vitamin B1, B6 and B12) which helps to prevent stiffness, cramps and tingling. Neurobion White Tablet helps the metabolism in nerve cells, which often decreases when getting older.
