Glad to discover another and great product called, Forti-D, an easy-to-swallow small gel capsule that contains 800 IU of Vitamin D3.  1 capsule a day gives you your daily requirement of Vitamin D (800 IU) and safe for daily intake.

Forti-D gives protective effects against serious diseases by keeping VITAL ORGANS functioning healthily (including the heart, bones, muscles and brain).

Unfortunately, 7 out of 10 Filipinos lack Vitamin D and you could be one of them. Studies shows there are insufficient level intake of Vitamin D among Filipinos. Many people don’t get enough Vitamin D, which can result to osteoporosis,

To make sure my children get the right amount of Vitamin D, I am preparing Vitamin D enrich foods like tuna, salmon and mackerel. Most dairy products like soy milk, cereals, cheese, yoghurt and even egg yolks.

Serious signs of Vitamin D deficiency are:

  1. Tiredness or fatigue
  2. Joint Pain
  3. Disturbed Sleep
  4. Gaining weight
  5. Muscle cramps

For only Php6.50 per capsule you can be sure that you are protected against serious chronic illnesses.

Nutrition Awareness For Kids

I believe nutrition awareness should start at home first and since school is the second home of our children, they should also promote and encourage healthy eating habits of their students. School programs can help children attain full educational and healthy eating habits by giving social support.

Happy nanay here kasi sa school ng kids ko no need to pay for an expensive costumes and Principal always encourage parents to be creative. Last year, we created hat out of recycled milk boxes and my husband helped sa drawing. See below photo from my instagram: Laking tipid dba? Art papers lang at glue okay na.

 

Year 2016 Nutrition Awareness

For this year, 2017 I prepared face mask, see below:

Star Apple and Pineapple Face Mask

There are ways on how we can promote healthy eating habits in school or at home.

  1. I am preparing home cooked meals for my children and to make more fun, I am creating bento for kids. 
  2. Let the children know the effects of junk food consumption.
  3. Healthy snacks or meals should be served in school.
  4. Let the children bring at least 1 fruit for each meal, cutting them into pieces will help.
  5. Follow the food pyramid, consists of Grow, Go and Glow.
  6. Be a role model to your children by drinking and eating fruits and vegetables.
  7. Do not skip breakfast.

 

Let’s promote healthy eating habits to our children.

 

10 MOTIVATION TO INCREASE YOUR VITAMIN C INTAKE

As a child, I bet your parents have always reminded you to take your vitamin C and this reminder can sometimes be annoying. This reminder should be taken seriously as taking vitamins are essential to our well-being and the lack of it can spell disaster to our day to day existence.

Our body needs these vitamins to function properly and each vitamin plays a respective role in maintaining a good health.

It is loaded with health and beauty benefits, thus, it is an imperative to fill in our body with food that are rich in Vitamin C and take Vitamin C supplements to get its optimum performance.

1. Enhances our Immune System
Change of weather and other factor can easily give a negative effect in your body especially if you have a low immune system making you susceptible to Coughs, Colds and flu. Vitamin C facilitates the absorption of iron and therefore strengthens the body’s resistance to infection.

2. Protection against Heart Diseases
Vitamin C restores and regenerate tissues to protect against heart disease as it aid in the iron absorption and decreases your bad cholesterol and triglycerides.

5. Helps in Weight-Loss
Vitamin C can aid in losing fat and maintaining a healthy weight. There is a certain scientific evidence that shows taking Vitamin C on a regular basis helps in losing weight significantly since it lowers insulin, hence, instead of storing sugar and converting it into fats, it uses it as a fuel that leads to weight loss.

6. Stress Buster
Studies show that Vitamin C reduces the elevated levels of stress, hormones and cortisol, thus, lowering your chances of feeling stressed.

7. Essential in Fighting Cancer
Since Vitamin C is high in antioxidant properties, it protect the cells from DNA damage and mutation. It supports the body’s immune system and prevents certain cancer forming compounds from forming in the body.

Vitamin C helps in regulating the sugar levels, reducing the risk of getting diabetes. Diabetic patients also acknowledges improvement of the symptoms of the existing cases. Supplementing Vitamin C influences glucose in our body cells and protects against many complications of diabetes.

Taking Vitamin C supplements helps in lowering histamine, thus, it lessen the chances of contracting asthma and lowers allergic reactions.

10. Essential beauty benefits
Vitamin C helps in production of Collagen which is an important building block of our Skin, Hair and Nails. People taking Anti-Aging supplements will get a greater result in adding Vitamin C in taking their supplements.

In Taking Vitamin C, make sure you are using its safest form. Take Bewell-C Sodium Ascorbate, a non-acidic Vitamin C and which is safe to be taken in large doses to get the full potential.

Also taking Vitamin C is really beneficial as it also protects our immune system and helps us fight diseases and it is important that we moms make an effort to be healthy.

Did you know that Vitamin C is also loaded with beauty benefits?

Vitamin C’s benefits extend to more than just our body health, it is also loaded with other benefits that will help us look good.

Skin Anti-Aging
Vitamin C helps the body in attaining full production of collagen- a protein that keeps the skin and other organs together, the element that is responsible for our skin’s elasticity and strength, thus, a regular intake of vitamin C equates to a younger and brighter-looking skin. Vitamin C also helps in the creation of ligaments and scar tissue by reducing the rate of free radicals, thereby slowing the aging process and reduces the visibility of wrinkles, skin dryness and fine lines.

Benefits for Nails
The benefit of Vitamin C doesn’t stop there as the same effect extends to your nails. It helps strengthens the connective tissues that fortifies the nail bed and helps our nail to grow faster. It also prevents hang nails by assisting collagen formation.

Hair health
Vitamin C plays a pivotal role in growing and strengthening our hair as it helps in absorbing Iron – an element that keeps our hair strong and healthy. And as mentioned earlier, it also help absorb collagen that stimulates the hair follicles which helps your hair grow faster.

In achieving the above benefits, an optimum level of Vitamin C is needed. Bewell-C (Sodium Ascorbate) contains all the vitamin C your body needs minus the acidity.
