A Colorful Way To Achieve Good Health


Going healthy may be a challenge to some, because it may ask so much lifestyle changes. And it is especially hard for those who have gotten used to so many unhealthy practices. 

According to a joint report published by the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, an adult must at least need to eat 400 grams of fruits and vegetables every day (excluding starchy foods). That is quite a mouthful to chew on every day, which is why IAJ Wellness Corporation (IAJWC) has been promoting juicing in the Philippines.

The key benefit of juicing is it skips two processes of eating, which is mastication or chewing, and digestion. Food needs to be broken down, so that the body could absorb the food better. With juicing, all the nutrients from the food could be readily absorbed by the body through the bloodstream, unlike with just blending the food which only skips mastication. Aside from this, juicing keeps life enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which most of the time are taken away through cooking. This also allows detoxification which prevents chronic diseases from unhealthy lifestyles, and promotes healthy ageing.


With summer starting to heat things up and with most fruits and vegetables are becoming more available and abundant, IAJWC offers two of its wellness products to help in starting a healthy juicing lifestyle to cool off this hot season— the Breville® Juice Fountain MaxTM and MATSTONE® wonder machine. While it is obvious that these two are very different on how they juice fruits and vegetables, both could do the same work. It is only a matter of preference or lifestyle choice, whether they need their juices fast and be on the go, or enjoy the experience of putting their favorite fruits and vegetables through the juicer and see how juices are made.

While some, especially those who are new to juicing, may just put in all their favorite fruits and vegetables because they like how it tastes, people should be conscious with what they are juicing and the nutrients their body need. Too much fruits, especially those that are sugary, may not be that beneficial at all, and may cause stomach upsets because of too much starch. While juicing vegetables is good, the taste may become unbearable to drink. The balance between the two is important in juicing to maximize its benefits, and have an enjoyable time drinking every concoction.

That is why, IAJWC came up with a juicing workshop to share tips on how to make juicing enjoyable and provide recipes that are meant for some key health areas. IAJWC held the workshop at the WOW Group Showroom where they invited some of their clients, Breville® and MATSTONE® Horizontal Slow Juicer owners. The workshop focused on five colors that are dedicated to key health areas that need some boost to have a complete enhancement with the body’s overall wellness.

Starting with the color red, juices with this hue has lycopene, anthocyanin, ellagic acid, vitamin c, and quertcetin which help in keeping the heart healthy. Yellow-orange juices on the other hand are rich in alpha and beta carotene, vitamins a and c, lutein, and potassium which are good for the joints and vision. Green juices may not be attractive for most, but it is packed with magnesium, iron, sulforaphane, calcium, vitamin k, folate, as well as lutein, and these nutrients help in detoxifying the liver and keep it healthy. There are also the white juices, which are rich in nutrients and vitamins, but it is best known to improve blood pressure with its allium and flavonoids. Lastly, the blue-purple juices can help prolong life and promote good memory.

“Whether we choose a fast or slow juicer, we have to be conscious of what we are juicing,” shared by Ms. Dianne R. Dupa RND, one of the facilitator of the workshop, reiterating the importance of choosing the right ingredients, with the right amount, for their juicers. With these tips, IAJWC hopes that more people would try juicing to take care of their health, and at the same time, make juicing less stressful, and as fun as possible. Whether people choose, Breville® or MATSTONE® Horizontal Slow Juicer to juice their fruits and vegetables, they can be sure to be on their colorful way to a good health.

MATSTONE® Horizontal Slow Juicer and Breville® are exclusively distributed by IAJ Wellness Corporation and available in all leading appliance and specialty stores nationwide. To know more about IAJ Wellness Corporations lineup of products, testimonials, and healthy recipes, visit their website at www.iajwc.com. 

The Wellness in Color workshop brought by IAJ Wellness Corporation allowed some of its participants, to experience juicing first hand. They used Matstone Horizontal Slow Juicer and Breville Juice Fountain Max, and got to taste their concoction.


Some of the participants also got the chance to make their own concoction by applying what they learned from the Wellness in Color workshop by IAJ Wellness Corporation. They chose their own ingredients to juice and they had to explain why they got these ingredients, including the name of their concoction. 

Some of the participants were not afraid in using malunggay in creating their own juices, after they have learned its nutritional value and getting some tips in keeping its flavor tolerable from the Wellness in Color workshop by IAJ Wellness Corporation.

Why is The Big Dome lit in Blue?



Just like the Empire State Building in New York, the CN Tower in Canada, the Sydney Opera House in Australia, and even Niagara Falls, the Philippines’ iconic entertainment and sports landmark fondly called the Big Dome has been lit up blue for a good cause.

Big Dome lights blue for autism awareness

On April 3, the Smart Araneta Coliseum’s main gate was lit blue in line with the global campaign to support World Autism Awareness Day (April 2 in the US), declared by the United Nations. With April being the World Autism Awareness Month, the “Big Dome Lights Blue” project supports the global autism community – a symbolic gesture behind a bigger aim to promote awareness, acceptance, and inclusion of people with autism.

“Big Dome Lights Blue” was a joint effort of the Araneta Center, Inc., the Smart Araneta Coliseum, and the J. Amado Araneta Foundation, Inc. (JAAF), in partnership with the Philippine Associate for Citizens with Developmental and Learning Disabilities, Inc. (PACDLD). Prior to the ceremonial lighting of the Big Dome’s main gate, PACDLD held its first-ever Autism Advocate Awards at the Gateway Gallery on the 5th level of Gateway Tower, in recognition of several medical professionals and parents that have made advances and contributions to Autism Awareness and Advocacy in the Philippines.


A short program followed at the gate of the Smart Araneta Coliseum. PACDLD co-founder Ms. Felicite Jean Gonzales said a few words and introduced special guest Mr. Rizalio Sanchesz, the Chief of Information, Education and Communications Division of the National Council on Disability Affairs, who also delivered a message of gratitude for the “Big Dome Lights Blue” effort.

Before the Big Dome was bathed in blue lights, a handful of children with autism and other learning disabilities, collectively called Kontra Gapi Plus, performed using Filipino ethnic instruments. Trained in art and performance by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), the wonderful kids showed the audience that no disabilities could hamper their leading productive and creative lives. Their joyful performance and demeanor onstage proved an inspiration to all.


“We are proud to support this global awareness movement and the advocacy of acceptance of people living with autism,” noted Ms. Diane Romero, the Executive Director of JAAF, in her speech during the event.
 “Our founder, Don Amado Araneta, has always envisioned the Center to be a place that welcomes all, and our participation here signifies our commitment to his vision. Today, we light up the main entrance of the Big Dome blue to signify our belief that we can be partners to tireless groups like the PACDLD  and the Autism Advocate Awardees in the movement towards acceptance, appreciation and protection of children and individuals living with autism and other learning disabilities.”
 
 “Big Dome Lights Blue” is just one of the CSR activities of the Araneta Group in support of autism awareness. Future plans include activities in partnership with groups like PACDLD in disseminating information on autism, holding art and crafts workshops for kids with autism, and training frontliners in recognizing and giving a proper response to people with autism.

The brand also utilized the name of the Outlet which sells different cleaning solutions products in various locations nationwide. At present, there are 35 Powerclean Outlets in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
