Sunday, March 14, 2021

     When a woman speaks, she can lead a generation into action. And that’s exactly what TV host, reporter, and all-around woman-in-action Gretchen Ho does. This Women’s Month, the athlete-turned-reporter shares her journey on how having strong women connections helped her become a voice and beacon of her generation.

      “When I envision something, I get into action to achieve it,” says Gretchen Ho. Dubbed as the ‘Woman-in-Action’, she has evolved from being a university athlete, to an events host, a news anchor, and now as a Beacon for other women. She talks about how she believes that success comes from a daily and constant effort, “Work hard. Never forget work ethic, take action day-by-day and keep improving daily. Move forward with consistency”.

Neucell Essence of Mushroom: Helping You See the Benefits of Yun-zhi

Thursday, March 11, 2021

     One of my favorite comfort food is mushrooms. I love it in my soup, together with tasty gravy, or with lots of stir-fried garlic. These fleshy and edible fungi are packed rich in B Vitamins like riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid. The combination is good for cardiovascular health, digestive system and maintaining healthy skin. Several centuries have passed and the mushroom, even up to this day, has become a staple ingredient not just in food but also for treatment due to its renowned medicinal benefits, especially in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).

     There were many mushroom varieties that have sprouted, and claims about its wondrous benefits have become legendary. However, it was only probably in the 1970s that mushrooms’ properties were studied up close. Animal testing saw success in slowing down cancer cell growth and improve mortality, but the real test was when it involved humans. During clinical trials, mushroom compounds proved effective in reducing cancer mortality while improving response to cancer treatments. Since its introduction decades ago, mushroom extracts have been used as medicine in Japan and as an adjunct to cancer treatment. Read more about Yun-zhi and its benefits after the jump!

     Filipinos are always curious- we love to try different things that we see on social media, that we hear from our friends, that we read from magazines, or even gave in when a relative or family member recommends something. We have the power to make something a trend especially in food, beauty, and fashion. Once that thing or that brand has reached the mainstream, it may go viral and becomes a crowd favorite.

     For almost a decade of lurking in different online platforms,  I've seen trends in the beauty industry come and go. If my memory serves me right, Japanese brands became famous for their oral beauty supplements then Koreans are known for their meticulous nth step skincare routine (until now), and Thais are giving the best of both worlds when it comes to inner and outer skincare game. Fast forward today, get to know one of the Thai brands that I discovered last year through my cousin- Mamala Thailand. The brand sent their best-selling products namely Mamala M Intense Intimate Cleanser, Mamala White Body Soap, and Mamala 9M.E.D Elixir Deo Cream. Sharing a short feature about these promising personal care products after the jump.
