Jessy Mendiola Stays Safe and Strong with Calcium Cee

As one of the industry’s most successful actresses who headlined a consistent string of top-rating primetime TV series and blockbuster movies, Jessy is a passionate advocate of health and wellness as she continues to live a balanced and active lifestyle despite the pandemic as regularly seen on her Vlogs that are viewed by millions of Filipinos. 

CALCIUM Cee opens the second quarter of the year with an aggressive campaign on physical health and wellness as it formally welcomes Jessy Mendiola as its newest and official endorser.
Calcium Cee is a daily essential that nourishes and protects the body with the fortified double protection of vitamin C and calcium as these nutrients are known as two of the most potent in maintaining a strong and healthy body. 

Jessy on the other hand is equally ecstatic now that she is a part of the Calcium Cee Family.
An immune booster and an effective aid against viral infections, vitamin C acts as a strong antioxidant that destroys free radicals that cause diseases. Since Calcium Cee is non-acidic and contains alkaline PH levels, it could be taken on an empty stomach and in large doses without the risk of irritation and diarrhea. Also, as it is non-sodium, Calcium Cee does not contribute to the risk of hypertension and heart disease as well as kidney disease.   
“After an 8-hour sleep, I start my day with lots of water, a quick workout, and my daily dose of Calcium Cee. Though I don’t have a regular diet, I make sure that I eat everything in moderation while having a cleanse to detoxify my body once in a while. Along with Calcium Cee, I also keep my essentials handy every day – face mask, hand sanitizer, and face shield. I’m very happy that I discovered Calcium Cee as this trusted brand is perfect for my lifestyle. I am not a fan of heavy breakfasts and since Calcium Cee is non-acidic, I could safely take it in the mornings on an empty stomach. I’m very grateful that I am chosen to represent this amazing product. It’s important to remind others to take Calcium Cee every day. It’s very important to take care of ourselves especially during these days where we need to stay healthy. Calcium Cee is excellent because it also has calcium which is good for our bones. I am honored to represent a product that is truly a non-negotiable daily essential. Everyone should start today because it’s important to strengthen our immune system if we are to survive and weather this global crisis. With discipline and prayers, I believe that the flattening of the dreaded curve is on the horizon and the day will come that we will all go back to our normal lives and it is important to stay and keep healthy until that day comes.” ~Jessy Mendiola
With the pandemic shrouding over the lives of people, it’s never too late to take care of one’s body at any age. 
“Jessy is a certified health buff and she is such an inspiration to a lot of people when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle. We firmly believe that Jessy is the best artist to represent the brand as an ambassadress because she embodies the Filipino ideal that gives much importance to excellent health and safety while working hard with honesty and integrity.” ~Mayette Acuña, President of Optimum Marketstrat International Inc. – the official Philippine distributor of Calcium Cee
Calcium Cee is available in all Mercury Drug Store, Watsons, All Day RX, Merry Mart outlets nationwide, and Alturas Bohol.

Foods to Nourish Your Skin and Hair: Understanding Outer Nutrition

Laura Chacon-Garbato
Director, Worldwide Nutrition Product Training and Education, Herbalife Nutrition

Nutrition is all about nourishing the body with the right foods and nutrients. Some people, however, tend to forget that our skin and hair also need nourishment and that they play important roles in our overall health and wellness.

The skin is the body’s largest organ; it serves as the primary barrier against pathogens in the environment. Our skin also serves as protection from a loss of fluid from inside the body, which is why we should keep our skin healthy and protected from ultraviolet light. Similarly, our hair provides heat insulation and cooling and protects us from ultraviolet radiation.

  • What Is Outer Nutrition and Why Is It Important?
In my role, I have the pleasure of training and educating independent distributors around the world about our company’s holistic approach to health and wellness. We teach our members about the importance of nourishing the body inside and out.

What we call “Outer Nutrition” is simply about achieving and maintaining healthy skin and hair. Just as your heart, brain, and muscles need proper nutrition for long-term health, your skin and hair require the right nourishment to be able to perform their functions: protection, thermoregulation, sensory perception, secretion, and excretion.

This might not come as a surprise, but inner and outer nutrition are deeply connected.

  • What You Eat Affects the Health of Your Skin and Hair
The condition of your skin and hair is affected by your diet, age, and environmental conditions. You can’t control some of these factors – like aging or climate – but you can manage what you eat, so it supports your skin and hair.

A variety of nutrients, including protein, antioxidants, vitamins, and collagen can help improve the health of your skin and hair. People with good-looking skin and hair tend to have daily healthy habits!

Here are my recommended foods and nutrients for healthy, glowing skin and hair:

  • Eat Protein-rich Foods to Repair Your Cells.
Every cell needs protein to maintain its life. Protein is also the primary material used to “replace” worn-out or dead cells. Your muscles, hair, nails, skin, and eyes are made of protein. A diet low in protein, over the course of many months, can cause a loss in skin tone, thinning hair, and wrinkles beyond what would be reasonable for chronological age.

Including protein in your diet from sources like chicken, meat, fish, soy or tofu will help you solve that concern. Meal replacement protein shakes are also great options for protein consumption.

  • Get Your Vitamins A, C, and E.
While protein is essential to achieving healthy skin and hair, vitamins with antioxidant properties – such as vitamin A, C, and E – are also crucial.

Deficiencies in any of these micronutrients can affect the health of your skin. The skin easily shows the effects of oxidative damage, and antioxidants have been shown to be potent in protecting the skin from oxidative damage.

Here’s how vitamin A, C, and E support outer nutrition:

  • Vitamin A
There are two types of vitamin A: retinoids (preformed vitamin A) and carotenoids (preformed vitamin A). The liver converts both types into retinol, which stimulates the production of new skin cells and prevents hair loss.

Good sources of vitamin A are fruits and vegetables rich in yellow to red pigments, as well as green leafy vegetables.

  • Vitamin C
Vitamin C is crucial for the body to be able to naturally create its own collagen. When there is a Vitamin C deficiency, unstable collagen is produced, which provides a weak structural framework for tissue repair. Vitamin C is also involved in the formation of certain lipids that help reconstruct the epidermis – the outermost layer of skin – when damaged.

Good sources of vitamin C are citrus fruit, such as oranges and lemons, peppers, strawberries, broccoli, and kale.

  • Vitamin E
Vitamin E functions as a chain-breaking antioxidant due to its ability to rapidly expel radicals before they can react with other lipids, thereby ending the propagation of oxidative processes in membranes. Additionally, vitamin E helps to strengthen skin barrier function.

Good sources of vitamin E are sunflower seeds, almonds, peanuts, pumpkins, and red bell peppers.

Taking a daily multivitamin is also an excellent way to ensure you are providing your skin with the micronutrients it needs to look healthy.

  • Try Collagen-rich Foods and Supplements.
During the aging process, which starts in your mid-20s, the skin suffers from a progressive loss of moisture and becomes increasingly dry. When this happens, the dermis becomes thinner; the connective tissue loses its firmness and elasticity, and wrinkles and sagging start to occur.

The human body’s collagen accounts for 25 percent to 30 percent of its total protein, of which about 75 percent is skin collagen. Collagen is located primarily in the connective tissue, and it’s responsible for giving the dermis its firm structure.

Some examples of collagen-rich foods include leafy greens, red and yellow vegetables, berries, citrus fruits, fish, chicken, egg whites, avocados, soy, beans, and white tea.

Collagen is also available as a nutritional supplement. Hydrolyzed collagen – a type of collagen that can be easily absorbed into the bloodstream when used as a supplement – can increase skin elasticity, skin density, reduce wrinkles, and support smooth skin.

  • Finally, Don’t Forget to Stay Hydrated!
Did you know that a significant amount of skin tissue is made up of water? About 25 to 30 percent. For this reason, it’s important to drink lots of fluids to avoid dry and dehydrated skin.

As you can see, nutrition plays a vital role in having healthy skin and hair. It’s the best path to looking and feeling great. When you nourish your body from the inside out, with the proper food and nutrients, your body will thank you with youthful and radiant skin and hair, ultimately promoting better wellness and greater confidence.

Jessy Mendiola, Ambassador of Calcium Cee Shares Her Secrets To Achieving Stronger Immunity


This COVID19 effect has been going on for more than a year now and having said so being stuck inside our home is the safest we could ever be and of course with the help of trusted vitamins for staying safe and healthy. As the country waits for the highly anticipated vaccine to help us combat COVID-19, Filipinos can go further in strengthening their first line of defense, which is their immunity.

Jessy Mendiola, the newest ambassador of Calcium Cee, shares her secrets to being fit and healthy in this time of the pandemic. As the country waits for the highly anticipated vaccine to help us combat COVID-19, Filipinos can go further in strengthening their first line of defense, which is their immunity.

“Firstly, I try to combat the worries and the fears with a more positive mindset. I make sure to pray every day to nurture a sense of calm and remind myself of His love. And I try to keep myself fit and strong with the right exercise, proper nutrition, and, of course, my daily dose of Calcium Cee. Calcium CEE is my choice of vitamin C because it offers double C protection. It has both vitamin C and calcium, which helps fortify my immune system and protects my body from diseases. Also, it helps keep me healthy, energetic, and protected throughout the day! What I like about Calcium Cee is that it is a non-acidic type of vitamin C, which makes it safe and gentle to take even on an empty stomach. Plus, it offers the added perk of helping me look younger.  Calcium Cee also helps in achieving a more youthful-looking by boosting collagen formation, repairing key tissues, and easing stress, among other benefits. If you’re looking for a simple, safe, and gentle means to boost your immunity, try Calcium Cee. It provides two-for-one benefits of vitamin C and calcium in just one capsule. It’s a powerful and potent combination that can help everyone stay protected.” ~Jessy Mendiola, Ambassador of Calcium Cee

As an active individual, Jessy admits that she’s had to make major adjustments to her routines due to the lockdown and has had to find other ways to stay healthy. Today, she stays active by doing more challenging workouts at home and a little weightlifting.

Aside from working out, her secret, Jessy says, to staying fit while in lockdown is complementing her healthy eating with supplements. Calcium Cee is a unique non-acidic supplement that combines the potent powers of two essential nutrients – calcium and vitamin C.

Calcium – aside from building strong bones and teeth to combat osteoporosis – strengthens the circulatory system. It helps blood vessels and muscles contract, aids in sending messages through the nervous system and plays an important role in the secretion of hormones and enzymes in the body.
Calcium is great in correcting imbalances, especially hormonal and mineral (phosphate and potassium) imbalances. In women, in particular, calcium is seen to greatly relieve common PMS symptoms such as bloating and mood swings and helps in weight loss.
Offering greater health benefits, calcium has also been shown to decrease the risk of kidney stones and colon cancer, too. On the other hand, vitamin C is a well-known antioxidant that neutralizes harmful free radicals in the body. It also helps control infections and healing wounds.

Calcium Cee – compared to other brands in the market - utilizes non-sodium ascorbate, a healthier form of vitamin. This is in contrast to the majority of vitamin C formulations on the shelves today that use sodium ascorbate, which has high levels of salt that may cause water retention and hypertension.

Calcium cee, ascorbic acid is vitamin c in calcium ascorbate form. It is non-acidic and non-sodium can be taken on an empty stomach.

Calcium Cee is available at Mercury Drug at  and Watson’s at Merry mart, All day Green Pharma, Alturas Bohol, and leading drugstores nationwide. For more details, visit Calcium Cee on Facebook: Or call Calcium Cee hotline: 09175642233.
