This natural caffeine energy drink is for every multitasker

Not all energy drinks are created equal. While most energy drinks promise a speedy rush of energy, they often come with a crash from synthetic caffeine. This crash is exactly what the newly launched Enature drink wants to beat with its natural energy.

Here’s why go-getters will love Enature:

Its energy-boosting ingredients:

Enature has natural caffeine from Guarana and Vitamin B12, which gives a more prolonged and sustained energy release. Guarana is derived from the South American plant popular for its natural energizing properties. Vitamin B12 also supports the natural energy boost from Guarana. Energy drinks with natural caffeine have a lower risk of triggering caffeine-induced symptoms, like headaches, anxiety, and insomnia.

Refreshing flavors:

Enature contains natural flavors for a tasty pick-me-up in the Classic and Cool variants. The Cool variant packs a refreshing minty feeling for an extra boost.

“We couldn’t be more excited to introduce Enature to the Philippines. We want to be a trusted companion to encourage Filipinos to be all they can be. With the help of Enature’s naturally sourced ingredients, Filipinos can strive for more without worrying about crashing out,” Christopher Michael Del Rosario, Enature’s Director, shared.

In today’s fast-paced world, more Filipino multitaskers need a better alternative to elevate their energy as they fulfill their dreams of becoming successful career professionals, social media influencers, globe-trotting adventurers, and more. With this “be-all-you-can-be” lifestyle, Enature empowers Filipinos to have the energy and focus when they need it most.

“Multitaskers and go-getters have their daily schedules full from staying active, attending meetings and classes, and accomplishing errands. Enature is ready to provide unparalleled support throughout the day with a smooth and steady energy boost,” Del Rosario said.

Enature’s Classic and Cool variants are available in all 7-Eleven branches nationwide for only P59/can.

Pro Age Solutions as a Pioneering Filipino Advocacy Brand for Menopausal Women

Why are we so anti-aging when it is a constant part of everyone’s life?

The silent yet growing stigma in maintaining one’s beauty and youthfulness, especially among women, inspired Claudine Viquiera to establish Pro Age Solutions. “What makes the menopausal journey even harder is the fact that there is no community locally that addresses the problem that women encounter,” Claudine Viquiera said. Her goal is to create a community of women in midlife to have a safe space to talk about their experiences while eradicating the taboos and stigma about perimenopause and menopause.

Going Pro Age: Roundtable Discussion

In the recent roundtable discussion held at the Marquis Events Place last August 22, 2023, industry leaders: restorative dermatologist Dra. Jean Marquez, regenerative medicine expert Dr. Joel Lopez, Veil Cosmetics’ research and development manager Mr. Jacob Park,  and the one and only Cory Quirino joined Pro Age Solutions’ Chief Advocate and Founder Claudine Viquiera in a conversation about perimenopause and menopause. The roundtable discussion also started the #OwnYourAge movement which is a call to women to embrace and be proud of their age as it is a natural part of who they are.

 Pro Age Solutions

Pro Age Solutions is a pioneering advocacy brand for perimenopausal and menopausal relief and overall wellness. The brand released its first product line that features skincare products formulated in Korea but are made and tested specifically for Filipino women who are experiencing skin issues due to menopause. Claudine explained that the brand started with skincare products as the skin is the most visible manifestation of the symptoms of menopause.

Pro Age Solutions Community.

Menopause and the Skin

Menopause is a period in which a woman’s periods stop due to the gradual loss of ovarian follicular function and the decline of estrogen levels. Most of the women in this stage experience different symptoms, one of the most prevalent is skin issues. Some of these are dryness and itching, wrinkles, acne, hot flashes, and melasma.

Menopause and Mental Health

Along with the skin issues, the changing hormonal levels also impact women’s mental health. On top of that, changes to their skin and their appearance can be a source of distress and may contribute to a loss of self-esteem and confidence.

The products will be available on Pro Age Solutions’ official website soon! Tune in to their social media at @proagesolutions on both Facebook and Instagram!

Join the conversation today and let’s create an age-inclusive and pro-aging community.

Oh! Crop Wednesday: A Celebration of Adlai Rice and Culinary Delights

Oh! Crop, the number one Adlai rice brand in the Philippines, has been making waves in the local food scene with its nutty flavor and health benefits. Every Wednesday, the brand introduces new Adlai dishes to different restaurants in the country in an event called Oh! Crop Wednesday. And last Wednesday, it was held at The Gram Cafe Serendra, best known for its soufflé pancakes and great coffees.

The cafe was buzzing with excitement as guests eagerly awaited the unveiling of the special menu created for the event. The menu featured Adlai in every dish, showcasing the versatility and unique flavor profile of the grain.

The event was hosted by Freya Paulienne Suguitan at Gram Cafe Serendra. Chari Trinidad-Mendoza, CEO of Oh! Crop, gave a heartfelt opening speech, expressing her gratitude and support of the brand and emphasizing the importance of promoting healthy eating habits as well as recognizing local farmers from Gawad Kalinga.

The partnership between Oh! Crop and Gawad Kalinga is a shining example of how private organizations can work with social enterprises to make a meaningful impact on the lives of marginalized communities. With the provision of unmilled Adlai to farmers in Bukidnon, Arakan, North Cotabato, and soon to expand to Liliw, Laguna, this partnership will not only provide sustainable livelihood opportunities but also promote the consumption of healthy and locally grown crops.

Oh Crop event at Gram Cafe Serendra.

Chari Mendoza’s inspiring advocacy goes beyond simply providing a livelihood for farmers; it is about empowering them and promoting sustainable agriculture, ultimately leading to the betterment of the entire agricultural sector. Through their combined efforts, Oh! Crop and Gawad Kalinga are creating a ripple effect that will uplift communities and promote a healthier and more sustainable way of living for all Filipinos.

The event was made even more special by the attendance of Marvin Agustin, a Filipino celebrity chef, and Jugs Jugeta of Itchy Worms, a popular Filipino band. Marvin Agustin showcased his culinary skills with his delectable Salmon Paella, which was a crowd favorite. Jugs serenaded the crowd with his music, adding to the festive atmosphere of the event.

The menu featured a variety of dishes that highlighted the flavor and texture of Adlai rice. The starter was a Summer Apple Salad with Tempura, which was a perfect mix of sweet and savory. The main course was the Salmon Truffle Aburi Don with Adlai Rice, a rich and flavorful dish that combined the umami taste of salmon with the nutty flavor of Adlai rice. The dish was a work of art, with its intricate presentation and delicate flavors.

The star of the menu was the Salmon Paella by Marvin Agustin, which was a feast for the senses. The dish was a symphony of flavors and textures, with the bold taste of the saffron and the tender pieces of salmon complementing the nutty flavor of Adlai rice. The dish was a hit with the guests, who couldn’t get enough of its deliciousness.

Ube Adlai Champorado by Marvin Agustin

For dessert, guests were treated to a unique take on a classic Filipino favorite – Ube Champorado and The Gram Cafe’s Special Soufflé Pancakes. The dish combined the sweet and earthy flavor of purple yam with the creamy goodness of Champorado, a traditional Filipino rice porridge. The pancakes were light and fluffy, and the combination of flavors was a delightful surprise.

Oh! Crop Wednesday at The Gram Cafe Serendra was a culinary adventure that showcased the unique flavor and versatility of Adlai rice. The event was a celebration of Filipino food and culture, and a testament to the creativity and culinary prowess of Filipino chefs. The success of the event only shows that Oh! Crop is more than just a brand of rice – it is a symbol of healthy living, community support, and culinary excellence.

Borough Lasik Center leads the way in lasik surgery in the country with brand-new Swiss equipment

Borough Lasik Center (BLC), one of the country’s leading lasik surgery facilities in the country, continues to lead the way in lasik eye surgery innovation in the Philippines with the acquisition of a brand-new equipment using top-notch Swiss technology.

BLC announced recently that it acquired the new multi-purpose laser platform FEMTO Z8 NEO, which represents another standard in innovation and quality.

Made in Switzerland, the FEMTO Z8 NEO is the result of visionary designed solutions and performance engineering at Ziemer Ophthalmic Systems. Ziemer is a privately owned Swiss medical device company that offers smart, cutting-edge technologies in ophthalmology, carrying with it a legacy and philosophy of globally renowned Swiss precision.

Together with intuitive new software and additional applications, the innovative FEMTO Z8 NEO results in extremely high precision and enables gentle eye surgery. It is the perfect platform to perform a wide variety of ophthalmic treatments such as Z Lasik, PresbyMAX Z Lasik, Z Cataract, SMILE and CLEAR procedures as needed, according to Dr. Ches Heredia, MD, DPBO, the Medical Director and Head Ophthalmologist at BLC.

“We chose FEMTO Z8 NEO of Ziemer because it is the most trusted, with more than 1,200 installations worldwide. Ziemer has high-tech lasers and diagnostics made in Switzerland, a family-owned company distinguished by its personal service, and their cutting-edge innovations in the field of ophthalmology,” according to Dr. Heredia.

He said the market worldwide is slowly learning to embrace the FEMTO Laser Lasik, FEMTO Cataract, and FEMTO Lenticule Extraction because it ensures safety and precision, and even the Philippine market is slowly understanding this. Dr. Heredia said the demand will grow for this technology in the near future. “We added this technology to position BLC as the best and most trusted lasik center in the Philippines.”

In the meantime, Dr. Heredia said the FEMTO Z8 NEO will only be available at BLC’s MOA clinic, but stressed that if the market would require it and it would be good for the business, they will install the technology in BLC’s strategic branches.

He added that with the acquisition of the new equipment, BLC will be offering Blade Lasik at a lower price, and FEMTO Laser Lasik and FEMTO Cataract at a premium price point.

Dr. Heredia also expressed his appreciation to MOC Optomedic, Inc., an affiliate of Mandarin Opto-Medic Co., Ltd. Singapore, and is the local distributor of Ziemer’s Z8 Neo Femtosecond Laser for the acquisition of the new equipment. MOC and its affiliates in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia have been in the business for more than 55 years spearheading the advancement of technology in the ophthalmic industry.

And now that the dry season is already here, Dr. Heredia said BLC is currently offering their biggest discounts for the year for Lasik procedures in time for the dry season in the country. “With precision vision, our customers will now have the opportunity to enjoy their best vacation season yet after a long time so they better book now while slots last,” Dr. Heredia pointed out.

The Borough Lasik Center is located at the SM Mall of Asia Wellness Zone and is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. A Borough Lasik Center in Davao is also located at Door 8 & 9, JJ’s Commune, Loyola Street, Bo. Obrero, Davao City, and a brand-new one in Iloilo found on the 2nd floor of the Festive Walk Mall, Iloilo City, and can be reached via 09661736117 or e-mail at iloilo@boroughsight.com.

Experience a Queenly rest with Queen of Hearts Silk Sleepwear

Apart from being completely luxurious in look and feel, the Queen of Hearts Silk Sleepwear Collection makes an ideal investment in beauty, health, and wellness.

Sleep is a vital, often neglected component of every person’s overall well-being. With this premise, a relevant business idea on wellness has been created.

“Lack of sleep is a major concern among people of all ages so we decided to put up a sleepwear business to help people get all the benefits of quality sleep,” shares Mitzie Go-Gil, CEO at Beauty Queens Collection Fashion House. Her company distributes Queen of Hearts Sleepwear Collection products.

The silk fabric material chosen for the sleepwear can provide utmost comfort, gentle on even sensitive skin, and breathable which will promote better sleep, according to Gil.

Silk sleepwear is recommended particularly for women. It provides many health benefits, looks elegant, classic, sexy, and beautiful.

For its initial stage, the products will be available online, and eventually will be distributed in Manila areas. “Volume orders for areas outside the initial distribution area including overseas will be considered carefully on its viability,” adds Gil, the beauty queen turned enterprising woman.

The health benefits of Silk

Did you know that silk is one of the most luxurious, coveted fabrics in the world? But more than this, it offers several health benefits.

First, silk is the strongest of natural fibers. It contains natural protein and 18 essential amino acids. It also contains natural cellular albumen which speeds up the metabolism in skin cells.

Second, silk is hypoallergenic. It does not attract dust mites and is a natural fungal repellent.

The silk fabric provides utmost comfort and breathable which promotes better sleep.

Third, silk does not draw moisture away from your skin and hair but encourages a proper moisture balance. While its extremely smooth and soft texture proves to be beneficial for those with a sensitive skin condition.

Sleeping on Silk for overall wellbeing

Sleeping on silk provides proper health hydration, natural, cool, prevents sleep creases, no sweat, slows down the aging process, and most importantly, it improves the quality of your sleep.

Queen of Hearts Sleepwear red collection. Silk sleepwear suits even the most sensitive skin and helps to keep your skin moisturized.

The fabric itself helps with eczema and asthma, prevents allergies because of its natural anti-fungal element. It suits even the most sensitive skin and helps to keep your skin moisturized.

Interestingly, wearing silk can help fight the symptoms of menopause. Silk is temperature regulating, which makes it beneficial for menopausal women combating the battle against night sweats and hot flashes. Hot flashes are usually triggered by fluctuating estrogen levels and other hormonal changes in menopause.

Can you give one important piece of advice to women on choosing the right sleepwear?

“Silk sleepwear is recommended particularly for women,” Gil said. “Silk is the strongest of natural fibers. As it is a breathable fabric and a natural temperature regulator. Silk helps the body retain heat in cold weather while excess heat is expelled in warm weather, helping the body maintain a comfortable, natural temperature. Silk sleepwear is free from wrinkles, looks elegant, classic, sexy, and beautiful.”

No wonder, Gil is a testament to a satisfied silk sleepwear user. It is her secret to a youthful, glowing complexion, healthy and happy physical state.

Apart from being completely luxurious in look and feel, Queen of Hearts Silk Sleepwear makes an ideal investment in beauty, health, and wellness.
