Feature: Tolak Angin for the Modern Filipino Family

Friday, October 30, 2020

     I bet, you've heard "Prevention is better than cure" countless times, and "Health is wealth" since time immemorial. These two popular sayings have been a word of mouth when we talk about one's physical and mental state, including one's social well-being. Health is one of the aspects of life that matters most, the number one priority that is non-negotiable for me, and in this uncertain time, a healthy body is an investment. We can't afford to get sick that's why eating nutritious food, staying active, taking vitamins and supplements, and rest are essential these days. True enough that when you have a healthy body, there will be no hospital trips and the need for medication. 

     But there will be times that you will suddenly feel generally unwell- feeling under the weather or that feeling sick for no reason at all. Maybe you're just too tired from work or from doing house chores, or you have eaten something that made your stomach feel upset. When these situations arise, we always check our first aid kit for quick relief and this is where I can say that motherhood and titahood takes place, reaching for herbal products as instant remedies when in need. "Having that said," I recently discovered an herbal supplement called Tolak Angin. The brand caters to modern solutions to health concerns in light of these challenging times and the COVID-19 pandemic. Sharing more information about the latest addition in their product line that I'm sure will be a mainstay in your health care essentials.

It has been continuously innovating its formulation that is derived from Indonesia’s jamu tradition, which is the practice of traditional, herbal medicine. Here in the Philippines, they have introduced the original Tolak Angin formulation that is made for young, working adults for their busy lives years ago and now they are launching additional products catering to the needs of the modern Filipino family- Tolak Angin Care Essential Oil Roll-On and Tolak Angin Anak.

     These trying times have taught us to live a healthy lifestyle that's why strengthening our immune system is important especially with the Covid-19 pandemic. Aside from eating a balanced diet and being physically active, taking vitamins and supplements is a must and I also consider taking herbal supplements as long as it's made, from a reputable brand and FDA-approved. I'm a hands-on mom and house chores are part of my daily activities alongside Yoga and weight lifting. My body gets really tired at the end of the day or gets sore after exercise. I experienced fatigue two days ago and decided to drink Tolak Angin that I mixed with warm water. I was surprised that it doesn't taste bad at all. The cooling sensation immediately soothes tired muscles and wakes up my senses. This is not a medicine but a quick relief from symptoms mentioned above that's why having this in our stash is a must.

    Like adults, boosting kids' immunity these days are so important. We need to give them extra TLC when it comes to their health and overall wellness. I know some parents find it hard to make this enjoyable because some kids are carefree. Some are picky eaters that's why teaching them to eat healthy foods can be a pain. There's this one time that my son ate something that caused indigestion, I don't know what to do and the only remedy I have here is the Tolak Angin Anak. I decided to give it a try. I opened a sachet and mixed it with warm water and let him drink it. After almost an hour, his tummy ache subsided. 

     Based on experience, mint and ginger can ease tummy aches and bloating and these ingredients are present in Tolak Angin Anak. I was relieved when I saw my son complain no more. Tolak Angin Anak can help kids be energized and protected from external factors that can cause illnesses that's why using this as a first-aid remedy at home won't hurt.

     Always remember to consult your doctor first before taking any kind of supplements. Tolak Angin is not a cure, it's a food supplement and can't replace doctor-prescribed medicine for ailments, chronic conditions, or illnesses. In this difficult time, #TuloyAngLabanNgPamilya hence, we must stay healthy and keep safe all the time. Bear in mind that, "The greatest gift you can give your family and the world is a healthy you."- Joyce Meyer

Have you tried Tolak Angin?

Good Times!~
