Enzyplex for Php 7.50: Absorb Life To The Fullest



When Eating Healthy Is Not Enough

Aging is a privilege. With aging comes experience and wisdom, not to mention senior citizen’s discounts. But with aging also comes the onset of aches, pains, and age-related conditions. Such is why older people try to adopt a healthier lifestyle – something you might have observed from your parents, grandparents, or older friends (or which you find yourself doing if you consider yourself old). They try to keep themselves moving by doing Zumba, for instance, and they become more watchful of what they eat. Eating healthier food is not just a trend among older adults – it is a norm. We know this is a good practice, but as we age, eating healthy food may not be enough. That’s because even if you eat healthy food, there’s a chance of you not getting all the good nutrition from it, which may happen if you are deficient in digestive enzymes.


You’re probably thinking, “Digestive enzymes? I remember hearing about that back in the day during Science class. What do digestive enzymes have to do with me getting good nutrition?” Digestive enzymes are responsible for breaking down the food we eat into a form that can be easily absorbed by the body. It’s not the food itself that gets absorbed – it’s the nutrients from it.

But how exactly does it happen?

Imagine yourself eating a piece of bread. As you chew the bread, you are starting to digest it already. From your mouth, it passes through your esophagus down to your stomach, where it further gets digested. From the stomach, it goes into the small intestine where digestion gets completed. Enabling the digestion in your mouth, stomach and small intestine are your digestive enzymes. These enzymes break down your food into nutrients so they may be absorbed into your bloodstream and transported to every cell in your body. Such is the crucial role of your digestive enzymes. Healthy food provides the foundation for optimal health, but even the healthiest food is of little use if it is not properly digested and absorbed.

Introducing Enzyplex – a digestive enzyme supplement that helps promote healthy digestion.

The thing is, as we get older, the digestive enzymes naturally produced by our bodies become depleted. Digestive enzyme deficiency is thus something older people may experience – and they may not even be aware of it. But how will you know if an older loved one such your mom or dad is deficient in digestive enzymes? If they constantly have digestive complaints like gas, bloating, or abdominal pain, and/or if their bowel movement is irregular, they could be suffering from digestive enzyme deficiency.

Good thing, Unilab has the answer to digestive enzyme deficiency. Introducing Enzyplexa digestive enzyme supplement that helps promote healthy digestion. It has a unique combination of digestive enzymes, which break down food so your body gets the nourishment it needs. It also helps one avoid indigestion symptoms such as gas, bloating and stomachache.  

Aside from digestive enzymes, Enzyplex has vitamin B-complex which helps enhance the digestive process and aids in the conversion of food into energy to support normal body processes.


With Christmas nearing, why don’t you give your loved ones (or yourself) the gift of healthy digestion and optimal nutrient absorption? They’ll need it, especially with all the festivities! Buy a box of Enzyplex today and let them absorb life to the fullest!

Enzyplex is available in Luzon branches of Watsons, South Star Drug, and St. Joseph Drug.

Ariel Men Push for Gender Equality with #JuanWash


New Laundry Experts! 
Ariel Men Push for Gender Equality with #JuanWash Because stain removal knows no gender

In Filipino households, doing the laundry is traditionally seen as a woman’s sole responsibility. Thanks to the shift in people’s mindsets, aided by Ariel’s progressive #JuanWash campaign, that backward thinking will soon be a thing of the past.



Recognizing that chores can be done by anyone, Ariel rolled out the #JuanWash campaign which is targeted towards men. Its goal is straightforward and goes right into the heart of the matter – to get men to do their share of laundry duties, one wash at a time. For Ariel men, this goes beyond simply doing the laundry, as it also shows their support to their wives, and moulds their children into understanding the equal role of men and women in doing the household chores.


As the first detergent to invite men to do their part of the housework, Ariel assembled several celebrity #JuanWash ambassadors. Among them is professional basketball player JC Intal, supported by his wife Bianca Gonzalez-Intal, as well as actor John Prats, supported by his wife Isabel Oli-Prats.


“The new Ariel Man is more confident and more responsible when it comes to raising his family”, explains JC Intal. More and more Juan Washers all over the country are rising up to do their share of the laundry duties, and it’s a call to arms that expresses what it means to be the modern man of the house.
 
“Ang Ariel Man ay makabago at progresibo. Ang totoong macho ay tumutulong sa mga gawaing bahay to serve as good male role models for the kids,” adds John Prats.

Local personalities Kean Cipriano, James Deakin, Ali Khatibi, Marco Alcaraz, Sam Ajdani, and Anton Del Rosario are also active #JuanWash supporters. These Juan Washers use Ariel Power Gel which makes superior cleaning effortless so they can easily help out at home.

Launched online last September 1, 2017, the #JuanWash campaign not only celebrated those men who have done their part of laundry duties but also dedicated Fridays as #JuanWash days. Considering that most Filipino households do their laundry twice a week, getting men to do the laundry once a week means doing their equal share of the load. By getting men to do the laundry at least once a week, Ariel hopes to transform them into laundry experts with the help from Ariel Power Gel that’s specially formulated for better stain removal with just one wash.

In partnership with Eat Bulaga, Ariel also scoured through many different barangays in Metro Manila to find Juan Washers every Friday. This put the spotlight on individual Juan Washers and showcased how valuable their role is in further pushing gender equality in the family and in the community. In so doing, Ariel Men all over the Philippines were able to collect 10,000 laundry hours in just one month, which represents the number of hours freed up for the women in their lives.

To celebrate this feat, Ariel handed over the 10,000 laundry hours to the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW), represented by their Chief of Corporate Affairs and Information Resource Management Division, Ms. Honey Castro, as a symbolic gift to women, while emphasizing Ariel’s support for gender equality in the household. This aims to inspire and encourage more men to do their share of the load.

“The Philippine Commission on Women (PCW), the lead agency that champions gender equality and women's empowerment, welcomes this initiative of Ariel Philippines in breaking the gender stereotype that housework is only women's work,” shares PCW Executive Director Emmeline L. Verzosa. She adds, “We are glad that the private sector and advertising agencies have now joined the campaign in promoting the value of shared household and parenting responsibilities among female and male family members. Through such male role models, companies are able to educate the public about more positive masculinities. Gender equality should begin at home.”

Ariel Men #JuanWash Because stain removal knows no gender.

Ariel’s #JuanWash campaign comes at a crucial time for Filipino families, whose lifestyles continue to evolve, especially with the rise in dual-income homes and an increasingly progressive cultural landscape that puts equal value in the time of women and men. According to the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), formerly known as the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB), Filipino men are getting more involved in household work, with men allotting an average of 5 hours working on chores in the year 2000 compared to the average of 1.87 hours in 1979. The trend is expected to continue to increase as traditional gender roles shift.

"More than providing superior clean and better stain removal with our innovative liquid detergent, Ariel is a brand that prides itself in being a part of the progressive Filipino home. With Ariel #JuanWash, we want to shed light on the importance of gender equality in and out of home, as we all work together towards a more progressive country and a more equal world”, shares Louie Morante, Regional Brand Communications for P&G ASEAN Fabric and Home Care.

Ariel Men #JuanWash Because stain removal knows no gender.

The #JuanWash campaign supports P&G’s #WeSeeEqual global advocacy and forms part of Ariel Philippines’ #AhonPinay movement which continues to push the boundaries on gender equality and women empowerment. To date, Ariel has an ongoing partnership with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) to provide women with training in commonly male-dominated fields. These trainings are envisioned to give these women more equal job opportunities in these fields.

A lot is in store for Ariel’s #JuanWash initiative, and we hope you can also take part in spreading the word for this nationwide movement. Go ahead and be a part of the change by contributing to your share of the household chores with #JuanWash – one wash at a time.

In gratitude to the modern Juans, Ariel is also offering a unique promotion for men who would be availing of select services from various Metropole Laundromat branches. Every time men commit to the cause in this way, they’ll earn points for freebies granted by Ariel and Metropole as a gift to the efforts shared in supporting #JuanWash Fridays.

Licealiz for a Kuto-Free Philippines

Summer2017 is way so over but the infestation of "Kuto" among students is still here.
Kamot-ulo while studying is normal only if you don't know the answer sa tanong ni teacher. But if the kamot is about that blood sucking itty bitty pest called kuto, ibang usapan na yan. What's even worse is that it can cause skin infection pa! And yes, the struggle is effin real.



I say the best option is still being with the proper hygiene, + preventive measures. Like stop mingling with seatmates with lice, or keep distance. But if the infestation is just too much, Nako! walang kawala ang kids mo dito. 
Oplan Alis Kuto Starter Pack: Suyod, White Cloth, and Your Mama na galit na galit  sa kuto :P

Us, moms, will look for the effective remedy the mano y mano removal of head lice sabay tiris! Manually picking off the eggs and the lice. some put baby oil on the scalp and hair starnds, and some go for the extremes, using kerosene.

But this will take so much time and effort. 
Is there any other way?

Look no more for the cure #LiceAliz is here to help!

About one-third of elementary public school students in the Philippines suffer from head lice-related problems. Head lice infestation or pediculosis can cause severe itchiness and infection of the scalp, but this could be the least of these children’s worries; the social stigma associated with having kuto can leave lasting psychological damage on both children and their parents.

Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo conducts shampooing programs for children all over the Philippines

Starting this September, Lamoiyan Corporation’s Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo will be conducting Nationwide Oplan Alis Kuto as a part of its Kilusang Kontra Kuto effort to educate the public on lice infestation issues. The Licealiz caravan will travel to different schools and barangays all over the country to hold shampooing programs and lectures for students and their parents.
   

A survey of communities visited by the Licealiz caravan last year found that 47% of respondents from the Visayas and 76% of respondents from Mindanao said that their children were bullied and teased for having head lice, causing some of them to miss school to avoid their peers. The parents, on the other hand, feel incompetent and embarrassed for being unable to prevent head lice from infesting their children.

Supported by UP Manila College of Public Health, DepEd, and Mommy Bloggers Philippines

“We want to remove the stigma associated with having kuto by educating communities on lice infestation issues,” said Lamoiyan Corporation Marketing Director Bing Cavestany. “We want to drive home the message that everyone can be potentially infested by kuto, that it’s not something to be ashamed about, and definitely not something to ridicule others for. We also hope to encourage these communities to unite and take action to solve this public health problem together,” shared Cavestany. 

Licealiz leads the Kilusang Kontra Kuto for a kuto-free Philippines.


Here are some of the not-so-fun-facts about Lice

1. Adult Lice = size of a sesame seed

2. Head lice do not jump or fly. They just walk/crawl

3.Lice are Blood-Sucking pest/insect

4. Female Lice can lay 50-100eggs in its lifetime

5. nits or lisa can hatch in justv 7-10 days

6. Head lice won't survive a day away from a scalp.



Now on its second year, the Kilusang Kontra Kuto aims to raise awareness about lice infestation issues and prevent and treat head lice infestations. Last year, the campaign reached 30 communities and over 10,000 children and parents in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.


Licealiz invites everyone to join the Kilusang Kontra Kuto in changing the public’s perception about head lice infestation and spreading correct information regarding head lice prevention and treatment.

Country’s largest food market chain embraces cashless convenience of GCash

Mercato Centrale just got GCash'ified!
Food trippers and merchants of the raved food market at BGC Mercato Centrale just got Gcash'ified!
Worry no more about paying food bills and giving out exact change as GCash, the leading mobile money service provider in the Philippines rolls out the first QR mobile payments service at the country’s largest food park chain.

GCash Scan to Pay Now Enabled in Mercato Centrale
Country’s largest food market chain embraces cashless convenience of GCash

With this newest feature within the GCash App, customers can already use their GCash account to pay for their food and drinks by simply scanning QR codes displayed at Mercato Centrale merchants. For consumers, this eliminates the hassle of bringing money, waiting for change, or getting into a dispute with the cashier overpayments. Merchants, on the other hand, no longer need expensive machines to process mobile money transactions but only a QR with a unique code that is linked to their GCash wallet.



“Mynt is dedicated to bringing the latest innovations in payments and e-commerce to the Philippines to continually enable the financially underserved, and this service is just one of many to come.” said James Mauricio Aujero, Head, Merchant Acquisition of Mynt, a subsidiary of Globe Telecom, which aims to address financial inclusion through mobile money, micro-loans, and technology.



“GCash is a great opportunity for our small-scale food business entrepreneurs to serve more clients, expand their customer base and scale up their business!”, Mercato Centrale co-founder RJ Ledesma added, pertaining to the value and convenience GCash adds to his franchise.

To use the scan to pay GCash feature, a customer with an iPhone or an Android smartphone only needs to download or update to the latest version of the GCash App, register for an account, and fund his GCash wallet at any of over 12,000 GCash Partner Outlets nationwide, including Globe Stores, SM Business Centers, Puregold branches, Robinsons Business Centers, 7-Eleven Cliqq kiosks, and TouchPay kiosks, among others. Once done, he just has to tap on Scan QR, point phones camera at the partner’s QR code, and pay.

“Mynt aims to bring access and convenience in payments to the vast majority of Filipinos through GCash.  With our recently announced strategic partner, Ant Financial, we will use technology that has scaled for hundreds of millions of customers in China, India and other countries in Asia.  We will do this in partnership with local merchants and are very excited to be associated with Mercato Centrale as a pioneer in introducing QR-based payments to the market”, added Mynt’s Chief Operating Officer Anthony Thomas.

Also featured in the GCash-Mercato Centrale partnership is GCat, GCash’s friendly white cat mascot. Customers should expect more of GCat in the coming months as the company rapidly expands its presence nationwide from commercial payments to business solutions.


Inspired by the Asian night food market scene, Mercato Centrale is the Philippines’ largest and longest-running food market in the Philippines. With its flagship location in Bonifacio Global City and upcoming locations in Metro Manila, it caters to thousands of foodies from Wednesdays to Saturdays, from 6PM to 3AM, serving a wide variety of great-tasting meals from authentic home-based chefs ranging from Japanese to Mexican to European cuisines to local comfort and street food. Food prices range from P50 to a still affordable P200 per meal. It is located at 7th Ave. cor. 25th St. in Bonifacio Global City.



GCash’s scan to pay QR code feature is continuing its rollout in select partner merchants in the coming weeks. Its introduction is in line with the thrust of China’s Ant Financial, the parent company of Alipay and strategic partner of Mynt, to accelerate financial inclusion and upgrade payment services in the Philippines. Alipay popularized QR code payments in China with over 400 million users.
