These 5 Vitamins Will Boost Your Immune System and Give Much-Needed Energy

Getting through the daily grind can be exhausting. Work, family, and friends all pose obligations that can sometimes be overwhelming.

I’m Running 6 Kilometers to Help Bring Clean Water to Communities in Need

How easy is it for you to get a glass of water? For most of us, it’s only a few seconds walk to the kitchen, where a cold pitcher is waiting for us to pour water into a glass. It takes me 11 seconds to walk from my room to a fridge. If my one-liter tumbler is full, it takes no time as it’s always on my desk. Many of us don’t need to walk six kilometers to quench our thirst.

Sadly, that’s not the reality for others. A study released by World Vision revealed that six kilometers (3.7 miles) is the average distance people in developing areas would have to walk for water. This journey for clean water takes hours every single day.

Here’s How I Stay Supercharged During the Work Week

I love work and I’m forever grateful for all the opportunities that I get, but there are times when I just feel tired and overwhelmed. This is especially true during midday when a sumptuous lunch would leave me feeling sleepy. The bed looks extra inviting, especially with the silky touch of bamboo sheets and the cloud-like duvet. I can say goodbye to afternoon productivity when I get into bed after lunch.

Lately, I’ve been feeling extra productive during midday and for the rest of the afternoon because I now drink a glass of Berocca after lunch. If you’re not familiar, Berocca helps enhance your mental sharpness and physical energy so you can #BeSupercharged for whatever’s ahead of you.

Here are 5 Vitamins and Supplements You Can Add to Your Daily Routine

The ongoing pandemic has made many of us more mindful of our health, but I’m lucky that I grew up with a mom who’s obsessed with it ever since. She constantly reminds us to take our vitamins and always knew what medicine or supplement to take when we weren’t feeling too good. I picked up the habit and continued taking vitamins every day.

I’ve trusted Puritan’s Pride for the past few years and religiously take their vitamin C and melatonin. I also bought their biotin when I had hair fall during the start of the pandemic. My hair falls when it gets too long and I’ve only had it cut twice since March of last year.

If you’re like me who wants to make sure that you’re healthy every day, here are five vitamins and supplements you can add to your daily routine:

Health4All is Helping Build a Healthier Philippines, One Community at a Time

The COVID-19 health crisis has laid bare the vulnerabilities in global health systems. In countries like the Philippines, where millions live below the poverty line, the gaps in the healthcare system are more acutely felt.

In February 2019, the passage of the Universal Health Care (UHC) Law signaled hope for the sector. The UHC Law strengthened efforts of the Department of Health (DOH) and its attached agencies to provide Filipinos access to quality and cost-effective care. The law was quickly put to the test when the pandemic hit, underscoring the urgent need for more resilient health care in the Philippines.

Against this backdrop, Health4All, a coalition that unites healthcare experts and engaged citizens was formed. Health4All opens inroads for collaboratively designing health outcomes for Filipinos, with a focus on providing underprivileged and underserved communities with support and access to better health decisions and opportunities.
