Herbalife Nutrition At Work: Active Workplace Environment

While the survey conducted reveals that more Filipino millennials are engaging in regular physical activities outside work, they find it difficult to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle in the modern workplace.

PHILIPPINES, October 27, 2016 – Herbalife Nutrition, a global nutrition company, has released the findings from its Asia Pacific Millennials At Work Survey1, which revealed that Filipino millennials are adapting a healthy, active lifestyle, however, most believe their current workplace environment prevents them from doing so.

Millennials, or people born in between 1980 and 2000, are opting for a workplace that will encourage them to stay active, if only this will be embedded in every company culture. About 83 percent or eight (8) in 10 millennials have agreed that they would like their company workplace to adopt a healthy, active lifestyle.


With the millennial generation expected to make up 50 percent of the global workforce by 2020, ensuring the wellbeing of millennials will be important to improving workplace productivity. “There are about 35 million millennials now in the Philippines, which is about one-third of the country’s entire population. Five years from now, millennials will be dominating the labor force. While most millennials want to lead healthy lives, they face real obstacles at work in doing so,” said Rosalio Valenzuela, Herbalife Philippines General Manager. “At Herbalife Nutrition, we provide our employees with nutrition products at work, subsidize gym memberships, hold regular wellness programs related to nutrition and well-being, and encourage participation in outdoor activities and sports competitions.”

Additionally, the survey findings revealed the following:
⦁ Seven (7) out of 10 millennials strive to live healthy, active lives
⦁ However, the majority of millennials find it challenging to maintain an active lifestyle at work – eight (8) out of 10 millennials spend 6 to 13 hours at their work desk each day, and 64% of millennials get less than 30 minutes of physical activity – including standing, stretching and walking at work on an average work day.
⦁ Additionally, 64% of millennials cited the “lack of time” as the key obstacle to engaging in physical activity at work.

To provide tips on how millennials and their employers can integrate positive nutrition and life style habits at their workplaces, Herbalife Nutrition has organized a sixth Asia Pacific Wellness Tour, which builds upon the successes of the past five tours that welcomed over 100, 000 participants. Five experts from the Herbalife Nutrition Advisory Board (NAB) are scheduled to tour 21 Asian cities from October 7 to 30, to hold a series of talks, workshops and medical symposia across the region.


“Through these efforts, we hope to equip organizations and employees with the right tools to collectively build a healthier work environment across Asia Pacific,” said Valenzuela.

Julian Alvarez Garcia, M.D., Ph.D., a member of the Herbalife Nutrition Advisory Board, will be visiting Manila for the Asia Pacific Wellness Tour this October. Julian Alvarez Garcia, M.D., Ph.D. will also be sharing expert advice on how millennials can adopt simple positive nutrition and lifestyle habits at work to improve their overall well-being in the long run.

Some of the tips to help foster a healthier millennial workforce include:

⦁ Nutrition

⦁ Dedicate a healthy eating day each week and get colleagues involved in making healthy choices for lunch on this day.
⦁ Boost water intake to help the body digest food, rid the body of toxins, and help deliver nutrients to the cells. Drink at least eight (8) glasses or two (2) liters of water a day.
⦁ Have a protein shake combined with non-fat milk and healthy fruit for breakfast. With 20-30 grams of protein and low-fat contents, it can provide the body with all the nutrition it needs to power through the day.

⦁ Active Living

⦁ Create a playlist that incorporates upbeat music and play with hourly intervals.
⦁ Use Running Apps to keep energized and on-pace during regular runs.
⦁ Set a goal to join running competitions to motivate self to sustain an active lifestyle.

Herbalife’s Millennials At Work Survey was conducted in 2016, with 5,500 respondents aged 18 and above, from Australia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

Healthy Upbringing according to Danica Sotto – Pingris

Parents know that their children’s health is of utmost importance. They would do anything and everything in their power to ensure that their kids are always well-protected from any kind of sickness or ailment. Just like any other parent in the world, this is the number one priority for celebrity mom, Danica Sotto – Pingris. When it comes to her two kids, Aniella Micaela and Jean Michel, Danica secures their well-being with a healthy and active lifestyle.


Importance of Health
For Danica, it’s incredibly important to instill in her kids the practice of healthy living. “As early as now we want our kids to know that they should be mindful of what they eat and how to take care of their bodies,” she explains. Although, the actress admits that she sometimes allows her kids to eat sweets and other treats, she makes sure it’s taken in moderation.

The couple actuates this belief by engaging their kids in various activities that’ll help work up their heart and strengthen their bodies. Danica adds, “We engage our kids in sports like basketball, gymnastics and ice skating. They also sometimes join us when we go for short jogs around the village.” Danica believes that by doing this, she and Marc will be able to strengthen their children’s resistance against sickness – “Living an active and healthy lifestyle will help us live longer, decrease our risks from certain illnesses or cancers.”

She encourages moms everywhere to continuously promote healthy living within their respective families. She even went so far as to give mothers everywhere some tips as to how they can achieve this:

♥ Create healthy habits for your children.

♥ Enjoy meals with them and engage yourself in some of their activities.

♥ Take care of yourself, [because] a healthy mom is a happy mom.

In addition to all of this, Danica suggests giving your children the ideal Vitamin C supplement. In her case, she has chosen to give her children the most awaited Sodium Ascorbate Vitamin C supplement for kids from the makers of FERN-C,– FERN-C kidz!

Choosing FERN-C kidz

Danica chose to give her children a Vitamin C supplement that allows them to keep up with their day-to-day activities, as well as, give them that extra protection from sickness and disease. Danica exclaims, “I’m so happy that I’ve discovered a Vitamin C supplement that helps boost my kids’ immunity and because they have a really good Vitamin C [supplement], they don’t easily get sick.” Because FERN-C kidz is made with the same Sodium Ascorbate found in the Subok Na brand, FERN-C, it is safe for children to take on a daily basis and you are assured of its quality. More than that, each bottle of FERN-C kidz is marked with the Quali-C seal, which certifies it of quality and effectivity. This ensures every mom out there, including Danica, that this Vitamin C supplement is safe, secure and efficient. FERN-C kidz also contains Zinc for added protection. Danica says this ingredient assures her of her children’s resistance against sickness. That’s why Danica can now say that her children have a “stronger immune system” and are not “sakitin.”

Lastly, FERN-C kidz comes in a delicious orange flavor, which makes it easier for kids to take and enjoy. Danica even says that her kids enjoy drinking their Vitamin C supplement. “Mic and Caela love their Vitamin C [supplement]. They even remind us that it’s time to take FERN-C kidz,” she expounds.

Over-all, Danica is satisfied with her decision to promote a healthy, active lifestyle with her kids. She’s even happier now that she’s got FERN-C kidz to help support her goal of letting her children live a positive, active and healthy life.

So, moms, now’s the time to start instilling a healthy and active lifestyle among your children. To do that, you’ll need the help of a Vitamin C supplement that’ll ensure your children’s protection and resilience, FERN-C kidz. Because with FERN-C kidz, your children will truly be “resistensaya, lusog-saya.”

FERN-C kidz is now available in leading drugstores, supermarkets, convenience stores and Fern kiosks nationwide. FERN-C kidz is from the makers of FERN-C and a quality product of FERN.

Biobita Food Supplement Granules Review

Biobita Food supplement granules was prescribed by our Pediatrician 4 years ago when my daughter suffered from Diarrhea. She recommended this to help my child’s digestive problem. Probiotics are live bacteria that are good for our health, specifically our digestive system. Our body is full of good and bad bacteria and Probiotics are the good ones. Though we can find them in some foods.

What is Probiotic?

It literally means “for life”.By definition, a probiotic is a live microbial food supplement which beneficially affects the body by improving its intestinal microbial balance.

There is a good bacteria, beneficial bacteria along with pathogenic or bad bacteria, live on our skin, mouths and gastrointestinal tract. More than 400 different species of bacteria have been estimated to make their homes within our bodies.

Why are Probiotics good for your child?

Probiotics are important because they help combat the effects of infections, poor diet and tiredness which very often wipe out healthy bacteria. This may lead to constipation or diarrhea or more serious conditions.

Probiotics help improve their intestinal tract to nurture your child’s immune system and prevent maldigestion and under nutrition.

They make your children’s digestive healthy like after taking antibiotics, probiotics replace them. It helps balance the good bacteria over bad ones.

Let me share you about the product:

Biobita is a granulated mixed of probiotics and vitamins. It helps improves your child’s intestinal and digestive health, ecology, and their over all well being.

50g bottle
100g bottle

P350.00 (50g bottle)

Where to buy?

Biobita granules is available in selected Mercury Drug store. You may check it here. You can also check their Facebook page for promos of Biobota. Big discount you can save.

Recommended Use:

For 6 months to 7 years old. Mix 1 gram of Biobita in water, milk, or weaning baby food  2 times daily or as directed by a physician using the spoon provided.

 A flat measurement from the top of the spoon provided is equivalent to 1 gram.

Overall Impression:

Diana was 2 years old then when she started taking Biobita, her digestive system improved and recovered from diarrhea few days after. Yvan tried using it (due to constipation), after a couple of days Yvan’s poop condition somehow change, it becomes softer a bit. We are still testing it and give it like more weeks to see the improvement. I give Biobita twice a day. Breakfast and at night. Will keep this post updated.

How do I give it to my children?

I mix it with their milk or water. It is tasteless.

Will  I recommend Biobita to my fellow parents?

Yes, because Biobota helps aid digestion of my children and their immunity as well.

I hope this helps! Would love to hear your thoughts  ♥

Reasons Why We Should Travel with our Children

Traveling with children gives us parents a lot of preparation from clothes to other stuff we need. We love to travel or stay in a hotel with my children because it is beneficial for them. Being adventurous makes our lives worth living for. It might be costly for the whole family but these days there are a lot of hotels and places you can now book online which is way cheaper and convenient. I recently discovered Traveloka.com, an online travel agency, that offers many promos and discounts. This is perfect for our family because it will help us save money for our flight and hotel.

 Reasons why I want my children travel with us:

1. Traveling let them explore new things.
Children can be expose to different languages, cultures, environment and food. This might be a starting path for them to discover new things around them. Try to go places your family can enjoy like going to the beach. You can stay in one of the many beach resorts in Cebu
Puerto Princesa, and Boracay.

2. Traveling makes unforgettable  memories.
Until now my children can still remember places and stories behind of the place we go. The more traveling experiences ever have, all the more memorable stories we can build.

3. Traveling allow us to connect truly.
In this digital age, most children would rather spend their time sitting and just playing gadgets. Traveling with them let us connect and spend quality time together.

4. To show children the fruits of hard work.
Truly traveling with children might be expensive, but their happiness is priceless. You can educate your children about saving and make budget for each travel they want to go. And let them know that hard work pays off and one of the perks would be memorable vacations.

5. Traveling can teach them how to be grateful.
Not every family can afford traveling or staying in a hotel. Traveling will help your family to be grateful and thankful for this blessings you have.

6. Build stronger bonding moments with family. 
It brings the family closer whether you are just sitting on a couch, watching the sunset and eating while viewing the scenery.

7. Traveling provides learning experience for your children. 
Unlike studying in school with different books around them, traveling gives opportunities for new and exciting learning experiences. It shows actual application of the things they learn on the spot.

There you go! I hope this helps. We must remember that traveling helps our child develop their physical, intellectual,  and social life. Travel as much as you can while your kids are young, this will benefit them as they grow old. And the memories cannot be forgotten.
