REDUCIN: Welcoming the Golden Years, Golden

Aging is frequently the reason cited as to why people gain weight and have their body shape deteriorate. This is certainly true. Physically, when we age, our metabolism slows down. Behaviorally, our habits change as well. We become busier with various aspects in life - work, family and friends. How can we fit in time to work on ourselves?

Is that a valid excuse? No. Living, just like any activity, has to be managed. Prioritization must be embedded in making life choices. Reduce time spent on less important activities. After all, what could be more important than staying healthy to gain more time living? 

Start practicing addition by subtraction with Reducin. Reducin is a 120mg capsule of Orlistat, a gastric and pancreatic lipase inhibitor for obesity management. It works by preventing some of the fat in foods eaten from being absorbed in the intestines then excreting these fat through the stool. Along with a low-calorie diet and proper exercise, Reducin can help you get back on track and lose all those extra pounds. With Reducin, you may get to break free from obesity, diabetes, and other health risks with high costs. Be guided that Reducin is not a medicinal drug and should not be used to treat the symptoms of any disease.

Reducin is sold in 120mg capsules. It is to be taken 3 times a day before every meal, or as instructed by your doctor. If a meal is missed or contains no fat, the dose should be omitted.

At SRP P29.50 per capsule, get on the right track in weight loss. Reduce as in everyday with the help of Reducin. Reducin is available at Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide.

5 Tips to Boost Your Immunity during the Holidays

Prior to this, I was actually going to write a completely different introduction to my blog post, but I deleted it and decided to post what I’m actually thinking right now. An hour ago, I felt this excruciating pain on my chest and back. I had a hard time breathing and I felt like vomiting. I tried to sit on a chair or lie down the bed, but neither gave me any comfort. The pain lasted for almost 10 minutes and then thankfully it disappeared gradually as I did some short walks.

During those 10 minutes, all these thoughts came up such as, “Oh, no! Do I need to go to the hospital? Sayang ang gastos!” ”Magpapasko pa naman! Ayoko magkasakit!” “My children needs me!” It was really an eye-opener. All your plans, all your money, everything that you worked for would be worth nothing if you’re sick or feeling pained. Christmas season or not, it’s really important that we should stay healthy and strong so that we can make more happy memories and enjoy our life with our family.

Holiday stress is really nothing compared to serious illnesses because stress can be dealt with or it can be prevented. So for you maximize your Christmas, here are my  5 simple  tips to stay healthy and strong to fight stress, boost your immunity, and enjoy the holidays:

  1.  Walk (with friends, family or with music).  If the store or the mall you're going to is just walking-distance from you, then walk instead of taking a car. Walking has lots of benefits including improvement of blood circulation, aids in digestion, lightens your mood, improves sleep, and more. Although walking is a bit tiresome for most people, walking with friends will make your walks more enjoyable as you chat with each other while you walk. if you don't have anyone with you, then listen to your favorite music from your mobile phone as you walk.  It's a good exercise and helps get rid of holiday stress. 
  2.   Take naps.  This is probably one of the most important things a person can do for his body, but often neglected. Try to take short naps whenever you can be it in te office or at home because it can reduces fatigue, increase alertness, improves mood,  improve performance , and most importantly, it relaxes you making you more focused in decision-making. 
  3.  Maintain healthy habits.  Just because Christmas is near doesn’t mean you’re going to abandon your healthy snacks and your 8-glasses-of-water-a- day routine. Simply maintain your healthy habits for mind and body wellness that helps fight off stress. 
    I dare you to try chilled pineapples in the afternoon! They're refreshingly good.
  4. Stretch. Do some simple stretches at home or even at the office. As we age, our muscles tighten and range of motion in the joints can be minimized. Stretching regularly can reduce muscle tension,   enhance muscular coordination, and increase energy levels  thus, making daily activities easier . You can simply use Google and type in “simple stretches” and look for a stretching routine that fits for you.
  5. Take your Vitamin C. Listen to your mother and don’t forget to take your vitamins especially your Vitamin C to boost your immune system and protect you from sickness. It is also a powerful antioxidant  which can fight the harmful effects of air pollution and stress perfect for those who commute daily. So always remember to take FERN-C daily for added immunity.

  • Enhances sexual performance by abetting the healthy functioning of the endocrine glands.
  •  Has shown a remarkable capacity to help knit bone & wage battle against such supposedly hopeless bone disorder.
Sodium Ascorbate versus Ascorbic acid

One of the best advantages of Sodium Ascorbate (generic name of Fern-C) is that this vitamin does not cause stomach upsets and that just made all the difference and my sole reason why I prefer it over Ascorbic Acid. Although both vitamins give the same benefits of Vitamin C to the body, Ascorbic Acid has been known to cause gastric ulceration in susceptible individuals (including our family).

Another advantage of Sodium Ascorbate to consider is that it stays longer within the body (About 12 to 14 hours) which can be beneficial for its antioxidant value. Since Ascorbic Acid is indeed acidic in nature (duh),  more of it is flushed down from the body. Only 25% of ascorbic acid is consumed by the blood stream unlike sodium ascorbate which can be absorbed for about 95 percent.
Now, anything that’s consumed too much is harmful and same goes with Sodium Ascorbate. Diarrhea or kidney stones can be caused by an overdose of this vitamin , so always do keep everything in moderation especially vitamin intake.

Sodium Ascorbate should also be taken with caution for hypertensive people for it contains sodium, but as long as the sodium consumed by the body is monitored and if sodium in sodium ascorbate does not add up to the other sources of sodium like in food (salt) or in other medications, sodium ascorbate may still be beneficial even for hypertensive people.

So which one is better? I believe the one with the more benefits stands out and that is Sodium Ascorbate – it’s safe for our tummies, stays longer in our body for longer immunity, and its availability. Hands down to that. 

So there you have it, folks. That's my list for boosting immunity during the holidays. For more information about Fern-C, you may visit their website at or follow any of their social media accounts:
