Novuhair: NEVER LET LOSE A STRAND OF YOUR PATIENCE

NEVER LET LOSE A STRAND OF YOUR PATIENCE
Have you ever experienced a day wherein nothing seems to go well, that no matter how you try to choose the right path, you keep making the wrong turn? Just like having a bad hair day, no matter how many times you comb your hair, it just would not budge.
Life can be challenging at times but there will always be a way to resolve these challenges and come out victorious. Having this in mind will be easy to keep your patience and continue to move forward.
Just like losing strands of your hair due to factors beyond your control, you too can do something.
Eat healthy – Eating the right food can alter your mood. Having low-level of folic acid in your body can cause anxiety, hence, food such as asparagus, avocado, salmon, and almond are recommended to fight stress hormones.
Stay calm – Listen to comforting music and reading feel-good stories can help switch you to a calm mood.
Exercise – Exercise releases endorphins that can relieve you from stress and anxiety.
Supplement –Taking in Vitamins such as B-complex can alter mood swings.
Don’t let your stress factors contribute to your hair loss. Letting yourself succumb to anxiety will definitely show up to your follicles and this can lead to more hair loss.
Hectic schedules and pressure from work, not to mention the pollution and filth outside easily make you feel unease and, at times, irritable. Slow down a bit, have fun and relax. There’s no better way to begin with your mane.
Tip 1:  The stroke of a comb can give you a soothing feeling while, at the same time, help unleash the natural oil of your hair.
Tip 2:  Stay away from getting pigtails, hair weaves, braids and tight hair rollers, which can pull and stress your hair.
Tip 3: Avoid perming, straightening or coloring because they contain toxic chemicals that could cause damage to your locks.
Tip 4: Choose natural. Use NOVUHAIR topical solution. Apply liberal amount on to your scalp and hair. Massage it gently for -10 minutes to help permeate deeply from root to tip. NOVUHAIR is packed with 19 natural ingredients that help promote growth, nourishment and rejuvenation of your tress.
NOVUHAIR is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide. For more information, please contact hotlines 4136570 and 09228830575 from Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5:00pm or visit http://www.novuhair.com

World Egg Day 2017 and Benefits of Egg

Bounty Fresh Takes Lead in Promoting Health Benefits of Eggs

Bounty Fresh, the country’s top egg producer, is taking the lead in promoting the health benefits of consuming eggs daily in the country through various initiatives including spearheading the celebration of World Egg Day this month. This year’s event will be the onset of Bounty Fresh Eggs’ yearly celebration of World Egg Day. Similar efforts have been done in other countries like Australia, USA, The UK, France, Brazil, Austria and neighboring Asian countries like Vietnam and Indonesia, to name a few.

It was a privilege to be part of the wonderful event. It was held at the Eastwood Mall and a lot of people drop by to participate in the different booth activities. There was also a talk about the benefits of egg in our body since we are aware that egg is always served during breakfast but it is also an ingredient in some recipe. 

With its state of the art facilities and using healthy feeds on layer hens to ensure high quality eggs, Bounty Fresh has become the Gold Standard in the Philippines as far as eggs are concerned. Given its standing in the industry, Bounty Fresh wants more Filipinos to add eggs into their regular meal because they are affordable sources of protein, vitamins and minerals necessary in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

“We are optimistic that by leading events like the World Egg Day, Filipino consumers will become more familiar with our products, especially the nutrition-enriched Bounty Fresh Eggs,” says Architect Edwin Chen, Managing Director of Bounty Farms, Inc.

  1. “Despite their affordability, the Philippine consumption of eggs is among the lowest in Asia. This is because of the misconception that eggs are bad for the health because of the cholesterol. We want to correct this misconception,” Chen adds.

    Architect Chen explains that an egg has 187 mg of cholesterol, way below the recommended limit of 300 mg per day, or only 200 mg if once has diabetes or hear disease. While table eggs may cause mild increases in Total and LDL cholesterol levels, this is not a cause for alarm. Eggs, he adds, consistently raise HDL (the “good”) cholesterol. In fact, studies show that up to three whole eggs per day are perfectly safe for healthy people.

    So how does Bounty Fresh achieve high quality eggs? It starts with giving its layer hens the best care and comfort by housing them in environmentally controlled and fully automated houses

that are tunnel ventilated. These hens are also given complete vaccination against diseases and are subject to a medication program designed to boost their immune system.

The layer hens are also given the best nutrition formulated by the company’s nutritionist to ensure that it meets the nutrient requirements for body maintenance and optimum production, that is, they can lay the number of eggs expected from their lifetime; with the eggs at the optimum size and covered with high quality egg shells to prevent the entry of bacteria and contaminants; and good quality albumen (white egg) and yolk rich in finest nutrition found on eggs.

Once the eggs are produced, they are brought to storage facilities using a fully automated conveyor. From the chicken house straight to the egg rooms, the eggs are fully secured to make sure that they don’t get in contact with contaminants and bacteria. This procedure will ensure that eggs are fresh and clean, making them safe for human consumption.

At the egg storage facilities, the eggs are then selected and graded by a fully automated computer programmed grading machines. This process ensures that:
– Dirty eggs and eggs with cracks or “hairline” cracks that are not visible to the eye are removed when they pass through the so-called “candling area” section of the conveyor.
– Eggs are sorted by the machine and not by human hands to prevent contact with contaminants.
The eggs are stored in optimum temperature that will ensure freshness and quality of the albumen and yolk. A quality assurance team randomly inspects the eggs to confirm meeting the standard quality that the company has set or fixed.

As attested by credible agencies such as the Food Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) under the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), eggs are very good source of affordable, high quality protein. They are rich in vitamins D, B2, B6 and B12, as well as a good source of minerals such as zinc, iron and copper, as well as choline.

Because of the vitamins and minerals found on eggs, consuming them will help strengthen muscles, boost the health of the brain, bolster energy production, promote a healthy immune system, as well as lower the risk of heart diseases mainly because of choline, which helps in breaking down the amino acid homocysteine that is associated with the development of heart diseases.

Eggs are also healthful for pregnancy as the nutrients help prevent congenital disabilities such as spina bifida. Moreover, eggs aid weight loss and maintenance, improve eyesight and promote healthier skin.

Thank you Bounty Fresh for this event that we all enjoyed. More power to your company and till the next World Egg Day.

Uratex: How sleep is key to living a better life

Why sleeping gives you a better chance of enjoying your waking hours
When it comes to sleep, we always hear the range of seven to nine hours as the recommended average for adults. According to figures, however, 60 percent of individuals never reach this goal due to different factors, a trend that can wreck havoc on health and overall lifestyle.
One of the most commonly pointed factors affecting sleep is work-related stress. According to a study that highlights the direct effects of work on individuals, 33 percent of the participants identified lack of sleep as an effect of stress.
This subject is what Uratex tackled during its recently concluded office tour that focused on the importance of sleep and its impact on overall wellness. The campaign, called “Sleep Soundly, Nurture Life”, held seminars that educated office workers about the science of sleep and how improving it can enrich your life.

The Sleep Soundly, Nurture Life series of seminars visited key offices in the Metro to educate employees about the importance of sleep in their busy lifestyles.
The tour visited offices in various industries namely Summit Media, MOR DJs, ACE SAATCHI, Philippine Media, and Metrobank. A special activation was also held in Island City Mall (ICM), Tagbilaran, Bohol which was attended by VIP customers of ICM and local bloggers of Bohol. During the event, sleep experts and wellness coaches held seminars that addressed stress problems, sleep, and the right way of choosing sleeping partners like mattresses. Wellness checks were offered during the round of seminars as well.
Wellness consultant, trainer, and coach Dr. Marco Escareal gave a talk about stress management and the importance of sleep during the Sleep Soundly, Nurture Life seminars headed by Uratex, the Sleep Specialist and provider of premium sleep solutions. Other professionals who contributed were Sleep Doctor Dr. Keith Aguilera from St. Lukes Global City and Uratex Sales Director Dindo Medina who gave a rundown on the benefits of their innovative sleeping solutions.

Employees from advertising agency SAATCHI attended a series of seminars focusing on the importance of sleep. Advertising and other jobs in the creative industry are considered some of the most fast-paced in the country.
A landmark study focusing on sleep deprivation by the University of Chicago found out that people sleeping for only four to the six hours are more prone to high blood pressure and a higher production of cortisol, a hormone connected to stress. Sleep also takes a direct toll on the mind and body, which can cause concentration problems and sluggishness.
 In addition to the seminars, Uratex also held special activities like yoga to further reinforce the importance of managing stress to individuals.
Stress and irregular schedules may be a part of a normal person’s life, but there is something that can be done to minimize the negative effects they bring. One solution is to improve your sleep environment.

The Sleep Soundly, Nurture Life during its event held at the Ronac Center Magallanes, Makati. The occasion invited Philippine media members of the United Print Media Group.
Uratex has been focusing on its efforts to build awareness about the subject for the past few years. The trusted brand is also a frontrunner in creating mattresses and pillows that can improve sleep patterns with the use of technology.
Sleep plays a crucial role in the overall health and lifestyle of people. Just like any other important lifestyle change, developing healthy sleeping habits involves more than just adjusting our body clocks. Understanding the science behind it, as well as the use of partners that can help improve it, can make a world of difference on busy lives.

Ariel Men at the #JuanWash Bash

The modern Juan paves the way for gender equality at home with Ariel’s #JuanWash

MANILA, Philippines — August 24, 2017 — Perhaps no era has prompted a more dramatic shift in gender norms than this one; and these changes are most evident in one of the most basic facets of daily life — chores.

It was a common knowledge  that household tasks were once viewed as “women’s work” decades prior, nowadays, a more equal division of tasks for cooking, cleaning, laundry duties, and the like in the new millennium is far from unusual. And men are to work and earn financial support for the family. Nevertheless there are men who are better in doing household chores than women. That I agree because I’ve seen it in my husband.

According to the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB), Filipino men are getting more and more involved in household work. In fact, statistics show that a significant increase was seen in the beginning of 2000s, with employed men allotting an average of 5 hours working on chores. This is a big jump, compared to the average of 1.87 hours from the numbers gathered on employed men from 1979.

With these findings, it’s exciting to see how this would continue to take off to new heights. A contemporary and fresh perspective on equality always starts from the core of the community, the family, and this is precisely why Ariel wants to keep the conversation going for every Juan.
As an homage to the men who show their support with the simple yet powerful act of contributing to housework, Ariel’s #JuanWash campaign seeks to inspire men to embrace one of the crucial roles in making a house a home by simply chipping in on the laundry. On September 1, 2017, Ariel will be launching the campaign online as a thank you to the Juan Washers, or the men who confidently help with the laundry thanks to Ariel Power Gel that makes washing clothes easily done in no time at all.

“For a long time, it has been common for women to have a bigger share in terms of household chores. With the rise of double-income homes and a more open-minded cultural landscape, men are now much more accepting of the idea of contributing to the housework,” explains Luisito Morante, Regional Brand Communications for Procter & Gamble, ASEAN Fabric & Home Care.
Many homes have their laundry washed twice a week. If the men of the household were to set aside one day for laundry, this can mean a world of difference for the family as a whole. As a convenient reminder of how each week gives men an opportune moment to show their support, Ariel is looking to dedicate Fridays as #JuanWash days. With this slight addition to their weekly routine, the men of the household can be a New Man as an expert in laundry, all thanks to Ariel Power Gel that makes superior clean effortless. Especially formulated for better stain removal, anyone can now reach the new standard of laundry with Ariel #JuanWash.

They’re the forward-thinkers — those who are never afraid to try new things out for a spin. For the men of the household, it’s about keeping up with the tempo of the times and sorting out fresh new ways to support gender equality as they empower the women in their lives. Cue in the Juan Washers as we welcome a new era of Ariel Men who fully embrace their role in making a house a home with the simple yet powerful act of doing the laundry.

SunPiology Duo: Sun Life Cycle PH and Sun Life Resolution Run

SUNPIOLOGY EVOLVES INTO A BIKE-RUN EVENT

Sun Life Financial Philippines, will support another exciting event not just a fun-run but a combination of both running and cycling activity.  This will cater to all running and cycling enthusiasts, as it evolves into a two-fold event dubbed Sunpiology Duo.

#SunpiologyDUO will come in two parts: Sun Life Cycle PH @BGC and Sun Life Resolution Run.
Sun Life Cycle PH will take place on November 18, 2017 at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. Sun Life will be mounting the event in partnership with Sunrise Events, Inc., which is known for its flagship projects that focus on race organization and sports tourism. The contract signing between the two companies was held recently in Shangri-La Mactan in Cebu, with Sun Life CEO and Country Head Riza Mantaring, Sun Life brand ambassador Piolo Pascual, Sunrise Founder Wilfred Uytengsu, and Sunrise General Manager Princess Galura in attendance.
“We recognize cycling’s growing popularity in the Philippines, and this is our share in helping encourage more people to get into the sport,” Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa said. “Just as it is in our fun run, Sun Life Cycle PH will cater to different ages and will offer different categories.”

Sun Life Cycle PH will have a total of seven categories: Tricycle Ride (100 meters for 2-3 year olds), Kids’ Ride (500 meters for 4-5 year olds), Family Ride (30 minutes for 6-15 year olds with adult companion), Solo Ride (30 minutes for 6-15 years old), Short Distance Ride (20km for 10 years old and above), and Long Distance Ride (40km for 10 years old and above). A charity category called Bid2Bike lets the fans of Piolo Pascual, Matteo Guidicelli, Inigo Pascual, Gerald Anderson, and other Star Magic celebrities, bid for a chance to bike alongside their idols, an exclusive photo souvenir, and have their jersey signed. For cycling enthusiasts, they can bid to ride with legend Robbie McEwen

Meanwhile, the Sun Life Resolution Run will happen on January 20, 2018. As with the previous years, Sun Life will once again mount the event with Run Rio and will offer 3k, 5k, and 10k categories. It features an obstacle course that illustrates the steps to prevent diabetes, like watching what you eat and why exercise is important. More details will be revealed in the coming months, which includes an expanded payment facility like PayPal and DragonPay. Interested to do both Sunpiology Duo events?

Promoting physical fitness, supporting worthwhile causes Sunpiology Duo will likewise retain its charitable components, where it will continue to raise funds for the different causes it has been supporting for the past seven years. These include the education of scholars from Hebreo 12:1 Foundation and Star Magic’s chosen charities.

Moreover, Sunpiology Duo will continue to be a star-studded happening, with Star Magic celebrities, as well as ambassadors of Sun Life’s wellness community GoWell, expected to participate.

The Sunpiology list of sponsors are also growing every year, staring with the following partners for Sun Life Cycleph @BGC: F2P, Powerade, Rudy Project, Cignal, Philippine Star, 2Go, Alcopllus, and Garmin.
