Monday, November 30, 2015

     After sharing with you my gift ideas for men this Christmas, here's another list to help you decide on what to give your girlfriends this holiday season. No need to rush as some of the items on my list are readily available in stores. I'm sure some of you are feeling the holiday shopping rush already as we only have twenty four days to go before Christmas. To tell you honestly, my holiday gift list is still empty because I shop for gifts a week before Christmas.

     Since I'm more of a health and wellness enthusiast, I will include some items from one of my trusted health, wellness, and skin care brand to date. If you're a long time reader of this blog, prolly you've seen my product reviews of Unilab products in the past. You'll see on my list below two brands from Unilab that I highly recommend and I'm sure that your mother, sisters, aunts, and the special women in your lives would definitely be happy to receive this yuletide season.

3. A Beauty Kit that includes basic skin care regimen products such as facial wash, toner, cream, and cleansing oil.

Product Review: Myra E 400 IU Capsule d-Alpha Tocopherol (Vitamin E)

Thursday, December 12, 2013

     Hi dearies! My apologies for another MIA, I know I've got a lot of things missed these past few weeks and backlogs start to pile up again. I want to go back to regular programming but I'm not sure if I'll be able to post regularly these coming weeks. Please bear with me and I hope you'll still continue reading my posts :)

     So to start, here's a review of another health supplement that I'm sure everyone knows. Myra E capsule is one of the most well-known brand of Vitamin E in the market today. I've known this brand since I was in high school. I can still remember my mom used to take this vitamin every night and she said that it's a skin vitamin. I have a simple question to ask: do you consider taking vitamin supplements for the skin even if you're taking care of your skin from the outside? If your answer is yes, then you should consider taking Myra-E. I was taking this vitamin on and off ten years ago to be exact. I'm not clearly sure of the effects of this vitamin on my skin before because I don't document it at all. I just noticed the blooming effect when I religiously took this every night a month ago. If you can still remember my post, this bottle of Myra E was included in the Unilab loot bag that I won from a giveaway. I was very excited when the package arrived and rekindled my love with vitamin E. My ob-gyne also advised me to take this vitamin  together with folic acid to ensure higher percentage of healthy pregnancy. So without a doubt, I took Myra E every night and saw a big difference on my skin. It's also a anti-oxidant for the body that will repair damage cells. So here's my honest to goodness review of Myra E 400 IU capsule, click CONTINUE READING if it's a nay or a yay!

Myra E 400 IU Capsule d-Alpha Tocopherol (Vitamin E)
d-alpha-tocopherol (Myra E 400) is an oblong-shaped, orange-colored softgel capsule with “Myra E 400”.
     I visited UNILAB's website HERE and got these important FAQ's for those of you who still unaware what vitamin E does in our body or specifically in our skin. 
1. Who can take Myra E 400? Can men also take it?
Myra E 400 can be taken by both men and women 19 years and older.
2. When is the right time to take Myra 400 E?
Myra E 400 may be taken at any time of the day, preferably with meals.
3. What is the effect of Myra E 400? In how many days will I see any results or changes?
Myra E 400 contains Vitamin E, an antioxidant, which protects our cells from damage by harmful chemicals called free radicals. Thus, it is difficult to say when one will see any changes because most of the effect will be “inside”.
4. Is it true that Vitamin E (such as Myra E 400) can cause tuberculosis when used by smokers?
Vitamin E such as Myra E 400 does not cause tuberculosis. Tuberculosis is a disease caused by the bacteria, Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Based on clinical studies, smoking may increase the risk of tuberculosis. We recommend that you consult your physician on proper advice on nutritional supplementation and healthy lifestyle.
5. Is Vitamin E safe after long term use? Does it accumulate in the liver?
Based on clinical studies, long term use of recommended doses of Vitamin E supplements by healthy individuals is generally safe. Vitamin E does not accumulate in the liver.
6. Can Myra E 400 be taken twice a day?
No. The recommended daily dose of Myra E 400 is 1 soft gel capsule a day.*
7. Can Vitamin E be taken with other vitamins at the same time?
Yes. However, you should make sure that the other products you are taking do not contain vitamin E to avoid excessive intake (greater than 400 IU per day) of the vitamin.*
8. Is Myra E 400 safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women?
The amount of Vitamin E found in the normal diet (usually found in nuts, oil seeds, legumes, grains, and vegetable oils) and in pre- and postnatal multivitamins (which are specifically formulated for pregnant and breastfeeding women) is generally safe. Myra E 400 is not intended for pregnant and breastfeeding women as it has a relatively higher amount of Vitamin E than what is recommended during pregnancy and lactation.*
9. Can Myra E 400 be taken with birth control pills?
Clinical Studies have shown that women taking oral contraceptives have lower levels of vitamin E in the body. Therefore, Vitamin E supplementation may be beneficial for contraceptive users.*
10. Do you need to take Vitamin C in order for Vitamin E to be absorbed by the body?
No. Vitamin E can be absorbed by the body when taken alone. Vitamin C is not required for vitamin E absorption.
11. Can Myra E 400 softgel capsule and Conzace softgel capsule be taken at the same time?
Myra E 400 and Conzace should not be taken at the same time since these products both contain Vitamin E.*
12. I’m 18 years old. Can I already take Myra E 400?
Yes, you may already take Myra E.*
13. When is the best time to take Myra E 400? Is it safe to be taken on an empty stomach? Is it safe to be taken everyday?
Myra E 400 may be taken at any time of the day, preferably with meals since it contains vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin which is absorbed together with lipids/fat in the diet. The recommended dose for Myra E 400 is one softgel capsule once daily. To date, there have been no reported side effects with Myra E 400 when it is taken as recommended (i.e., one softgel capsule a day).*

     I take one capsule every evening before bedtime because the best time to drink supplements is when we're about to sleep. I already consumed the whole bottle and now I can say my thoughts about the product. Even though I already tried taking this brand of vitamin E way, way back, I can say that my observations now is clearer and accurate since I'm on my 30's and my skin needs more nourishment from within unlike before (during my 20's).

Myra E 400 IU Capsule d-Alpha Tocopherol (Vitamin E)

What I like:
  • The price- affordable.
  • The product comes in a plastic container and well-sealed.
  • The capsule is easy to swallow.
  • There's no funky odor/scent coming from the pill. I noticed a mild sweet scent every time I take this brand.
  • Doesn't give me a stomach ache, nausea, dizziness or allergic reactions.
  • No breakouts, allergic reaction or whatsoever.
  • It made my pale skin brighter and glowing.
  • I didn't saw effects on these areas: protect against atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disorders and improve nerve functions and help prevent the onset of neuromuscular degenerative diseases BUT these things are very important to consider especially in late 30's I guess.
  • There are a batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the bottle.
  • Easily accessible.
  • Aside from skin benefits, my ob-gyne advised me to take this as a preparation for healthy pregnancy together with folic acid.

What I don't like:
  • None

Will I purchase? Yes!

     I give this a 4.75/5 recommendation. I can say that from all the vitamins that I've tried before, vitamin E goes well with my system. I didn't experienced breakouts or whatsoever. It also made my dull skin glowing. Aside from the skin benefits that we can get from taking Myra- E, my ob advised me to take this together with folic acid to produce healthy cells in preparation for my next pregnancy. Myra-E is affordable too and easily accessible. So start taking care of your skin from within!

     Do you take skin care supplements? Thank you for sharing your experience!

Good Times!~

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

     Hello dearies! Do you love joining giveaways? If the answer is YES, well me too! If you're a long time reader of this blog I'm sure you know that I always win from giveaways that I join. I can say that I'm a giveaway/contest addict. I've been joining mini and huge giveaways for the past three years and luckily I always grab either the grand or consolation prizes. I mentioned that I love joining giveaways but there came a time that I just lost my interest in joining any kind of contests and giveaways on blogs that I follow, Facebook and Twitter. If my memory serves me right it's been six month that I rarely or never joined any of them. But two months ago I simply missed logging my entries on the rafflecopter, sharing contest banners and re-tweeting hashtags thus I became active again in this addictive world of online contests, promos and giveaways.

     So to inspire my readers that reading blog posts is not only informative but lots of fun too because of prizes, here's the photos of products that I got as prizes from the giveaways and contests that I joined recently. I'll post the links where I joined and if you have time you can read my past winnings too. Click CONTINUE READING to see these wonderful prizes :)
