Where to find the perfect pads?

Here is another helpful (I hope) review for all the ladies out there.

I ‘ve been looking for the perfect brand of pad to use everyday. I’ve tried a lot of brands of cotton and non-cotton pads, but my genital is sensitive (like all of the humans) and I can’t risk trying out different pads all the time. One day I ran out of pads and luckily we’re at my brother’s house and my sister-in-law has a stock of brand new pads. So, I tried it, and honestly I’ve never felt so calm and comfortable.

At the end of the day, I needed to change my panty liner and I was shocked. There were green vaginal discharge and I got scared, so I googled it and I googled the brand. After googling I learned that I shouldn’t be worried because it’s normal. I also learned that K-Pads helps us remove the unwanted blood and other bad toxins in our body. K-Pads is the first anti-dysmenorrhea napkin which has an ion capabilities.

The embedded negative ion strip can increase energy, enhance immunity, regulate, lessen heavy periods, balance hormones, mood and kill bacteria causing odor.

It also has 8 layers in order to prevent any leakage during heavy menstrual period.

What I love about this brand is that it comes with a Vaginal Health Self-Test Card, which you can use to check how healthy you are by testing your vaginal discharge. Isn’t that Amazing?

K-Pads’ performance is awesome. Besides the fact that it has a cooling effect when you wear it. It has a lot of benefits.

The benefits are as follows:

  • It cleanses our ovaries which is a big help to those women who wants to get pregnant.
  • It helps maintain clean and comfortable late.
  • It helps reduce irritation and remove odor .
  • It helps accelerate oxygen circulation between the private part.
  • It helps release negative ions up to 6100/cm3.

It is said that it can sure:

  • UTI
  • Myoma
  • Dysmenorrhea
  • Vaginal Odor
  • Inflammation
  • Hormonal Imbalance
  • Endometriosis
  • Haemorrhoids
  • Cervical Cancer
  • Viral and Bacterial Infection

They have 3 kinds of pads; Day pads, Night pads and Panty Liners

You can buy one of these pads from All Spice Shop.

Scarlet Snow Belo’s Swiss Discovery with Nestlé NANKID

Experience is extraordinary when our kids explore and learn what’s there for them in the outside world. Why not let our kids discover and learn on their own.

For us, we let Azi experience new things on any trips such as weekend trip to a beach, or a visit to the zoo. Those adventures always teach him something new; something weird, good or bad, happy or sad.

Can’t imagine the excitement that Scarlet Snow Belo, daughter of Dra. Vicky Belo and Dr. Hayden Kho, felt when she recently went on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to the Nestle Headquarters in Switzerland. The majestic breathtaking views of the Swiss Alps, is where world class products are especially made for growing children are developed.

Scarlet Snow fondly explored the various rooms and tools that were used in different scientific studies and discovered many new things in the headquarters.

Moreover, Scarlet met the brilliant science experts and higher ups who work in the headquarters like Alex Keller, the Global Category Head of Nestle Infant and Growing Up Milks, and Marco Turini, Global Head for Scientific Affairs for Nestle. The experts were definitely glad to meet their adorable visitor, as they explained their latest breakthrough to her, including how they conducted Scarlet Snow’s milk, Nestle NANKID.

The experts started explaining the formulation of the milk, the secret to why Nestle NANKID is adapted for kids. They showed Scarlet Snow how all the essential vitamins, minerals and DHA are present in the milk. They also taught her that there is no added sucrose (table sugar) to make sure it is a healthy choice for kids.

Did you know that protein is one of the most important nutrients for a child’s growth and development, contributing to the building of brain, muscles, and body? Well, that was one of Scarlet Snow’s educational discovery. It is known that the optimized protein found in Nestle NANKID is high quality, low quantity protein that is optimal for weight and development advantage.

Nestle NANKID doesn’t stop at just providing the right vitamins and optimized proteins. Nestle NANKID also has probiotics. This keeps the kids digestive system strong and healthy as it fights the bad bacteria in her stomach.

Behaving and listening intently, Scarlet Snow learned that all good things she gets from her favorite milk helps her grow up to be future ready.

As parents, we have the power to #ReShapetheFuture of our children knowing that childhood is all about learning, growing, and experiencing new things. Bear in mind that every experience contributes to a child’s mental, emotional and over-all development. All of these will be possible with proper nutrition, especially one that has optimized protein like Nestle NANKID, growing children can achieve their fullest potentials. And this is the message behind Scarlet Snow’s webisodes. It emphasizes the role that parents play in reshaping the future of their growing children.

Watch the webisodes to see how Scarlet Snow, with the support of her parents and with NANKID, is well positioned to become the best that she can become in the future.

Sitting is the new smoking

The simplest guideline for all of us would have to be, “Sit less and move more, ” according to close to 2,000-member Philippine Heart Association (PHA) and  the  husband and wife tandem of  fitness gurus,  Jim and Toni Saret.

Yes, there’s a direct relationship between time spent sitting and your risk of early mortality of any cause. As your total sitting time increases, so does your risk of an early death.

Sitting  for around eight hours a day at the workplace increases the risk of contracting heart disease, cancer and diabetes by 40 percent. Actually, it can cause killer legs, too.

Majority of the world population is in the working age-group. This group are always on the computer.  Glued on their seats for eight hours, they lead sedentary lifestyles, while facing different kinds of stress which leads to unhealthy eating (stress eating) and lifestyle. Most of them are unable to engage in appropriate physical activities for their physical and mental well-being. And in worse cases, some do not have the means to cope with stress and maintain mental health.

Eating healthy, exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy weight, and avoiding vices like alcohol and cigarettes are ways of preventing major lifestyle diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancers as well as other risk factors such as raise blood pressure, raise blood sugar level and  obesity. However, awareness and practices of these healthy benefits are still low among the working population.

The Philippine Heart Association (PHA), a non-stock, non-profit organization of 1,780 Filipino cardiologists is committed to foster exceptional cardiovascular education and primary care for everyone. Living up to its mission, the PHA aims to do its share on the awareness on preventive and management of heart diseases. The initiative encourages employees to improve their physical and mental well-being, and effectively address sedentary lifestyles by launching a campaign called “Sneakers Friday.”

“Sneakers Friday” capitalizes on promoting physical activity. It is meant to promote workplace health and wellness where personnel are encouraged to wear sneakers, casual top and pants every Friday as a “dress down day.”

The PHA’s “Sneakers Friday” campaign builds on the perspective that individuals have the ability to adopt healthy lifestyles when supported by a conducive workplace environment that promotes “healthy eating, healthy habits and physical and mental fitness.”

 In order to obtain a healthy lifestyle, it is important to incorporate wellness in all aspects of one’s life, including the workplace. Corporate wellness generates many positive outcomes for their employees as well as the company itself. Even a simple activity such as walking (or brisk walking, with 100 steps per minute) has so many powerful health benefits. When done correctly and regularly, it can be the key to losing weight, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, and boosting your memory as well as reducing your risk for developing heart disease, diabetes, cancer and more. Walking could be done effortlessly without interrupting corporate work. One can also choose to take the stairs rather than ride the elevator or when one parks the car, choose the farthest end so you’d have more time to walk.

The “Sneakers Friday” initial campaign got off the ground spearheaded by medical professionals and cardiovascular experts themselves in November of 2017 with the Makati Medical Center as its launching site, followed by The Medical City where every last weekday was officially declared as “Sneakers Friday.”

Today, May 22, 2018, The “Sneakers Friday” campaign is officially launched. This ultimate goal of this campaign is to encourage the corporate sector to integrate more physical activity into their hectic pace and to make them aware that the corporate sector is the paragon of good health.

PreCon 2-10

The benefits of incorporating a wellness program like “Sneakers Friday” in your workplace:

Aside from promoting a healthy lifestyle, it relieves employee stress, and it also promotes employee camaraderie. Setting time aside for employees to exercise can help reduce stress and overall sitting time. It also releases endorphins (happy hormones) and in the process creating happier and more energized employees. With a better mood and more energy comes more productivity!

Incorporating the Sneakers Friday campaign is great for promoting employee fitness and health. Partaking in physical fitness activities is proven to lower one’s chances of getting sick, which in return will ultimately lower health care costs for employees and the company. In addition, there’s an increase productivity as employees take fewer sick days too.

Employees get to know fellow employees outside of work. With a great group activity that allows co-workers to get to know each other better, employees will get the benefits of physical activity and the socialization that comes along with the group exercise.

With the “Sneakers Friday” campaign, coupled with healthy habits and lifestyle, the PHA looks forward to seeing happier and heart healthier Filipinos.

Benefits of M2 Concentrated Tea Drink

Have you ever heard of M2 concentrated tea drink? Nature Earth sent me some of their products, and one of those are these M2 concentrated tea drink. Curious lady that I am, I researched about the drink and I will proudly share the important benefits of the drink based on what I researched and the details I got from Nature Earth.

We can easily determine its benefits just by reading the ingredients and the contents written on the bottle itself, but still, here’s my impression…

Benefits of M2 Concentrated Tea Drink

Delicious breastfeeding diet for pregnant and nursing moms
Breastfeeding is very essential and beneficial for both mothers and babies, but on the other hand, requires a lot or work and tiresome. In order to keep adequate supply of breast milk, it is important for mothers to always stay hydrated. It means that nursing mothers need to drink a lot of liquid each day. But of course, mothers should be aware about the nutrition she’ll get from what she intakes to make sure quality milk is being produced for her baby. Don’t get me wrong, water is good, but it lacks nutritional content. M2 concentrated tea drink is considered as a suitable diet for breastfeeding mothers. Malunggay, okra and ginger are known low calorie vegetables which are great sources of calcium and healthy antioxidants for both mothers and babies.

Healthy source of nutrients for everyone
NatureEarth created M2 concentrated tea drink in 2011. It’s main ingredients are malunggay, okra and ginger. M2 provides us with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron, potassium, calcium and although it is proven helpful in increasing the milk supply of nursing moms it is not made only for the breastfeeding moms or pregnant women. M2 can also be an alternate diet for health conscious people.
