Busy Schedule? Try These Easy Tips for Staying Healthy

The hustle culture is slowly normalizing, especially for millennials who want to earn on top of their nine-to-five job. So, it’s no surprise that different working conditions that are too taxing cannot be avoided. But while you strive to be at your best, you should not forget to supply your body with what it needs.

Learn how this wonder food can supplement your health needs while keeping up with the grind.

Jane De Leon, TV Personality, a sought-after young actress, and brand ambassador of Santé Barley, knows this all too well. But despite this, she shares how easy lifestyle changes can impact how healthy she can hope to be. 

Indeed, having Santé Barley Powder with Stevia as part of her every day routine has allowed her to stay healthy.

"As an actress, I do a lot of lock-in taping. There are also some scenes where I must exert a lot of energy and effort, which can be taxing for my body. That is why the 200g Santé Barley Powder with Stevia can help me improve my health and performance despite my busy schedule. I also made some little lifestyle changes that do not take a lot of time, so I can continue giving my best in every character I play." ~Jane De Leon, TV Personality, a sought-after young actress, and brand ambassador of Santé Barley

Like Jane De Leon, here are some tips that you can apply, together with 200g Santé Barley Powder with Stevia, to keep your body healthy despite having a busy schedule:

Add healthy drinks to your meals. Sometimes, it is nice to end your meal by drinking sweet beverages like soft drinks, milkshakes, milk tea, and more. While these may be tasty, it’s high sugar content is definitely bad for the body. 

If a sweet drink is your guilty pleasure, it is time to switch to 200g Santé Barley Powder with Stevia.

200g Santé Barley Powder with Stevia contains a certified organic barley grass by BioGro, New Zealand's largest and best-known certifier for organic produce and products that promote the highest levels of organic quality. Since it is sweetened using Stevia, an alternative sweetener made from stevia plant leaves, it is guaranteed to be delicious without containing carbohydrates, calories, or any artificial ingredients. 

For best results, you can serve it by mixing one heaping scoop or teaspoon into one glass (approximately 250mL) of water. Stir well and consume immediately. It is best to drink a glass daily before meals or as prescribed by a physician.   

With these, you can still enjoy your sweet drink without worrying about the repercussions that it can do on your health. You will also have a boost of energy and a healthier mind and body to face every task you need to accomplish.

Consider a meal prep. Due to your busy schedule, there are times that you will forget to eat on time. With this, you will feel tired and weak. Remember, no matter how busy you can get, it is essential to have a complete meal because your body gets the energy from the food you eat.

Consider having a meal prep. Meal prep or meal prepping is the concept of making your meals ahead of time. This is perfect for busy people because it saves you a lot of time, and you can customize your food according to your diet. With the help of meal prep, you will have a complete meal without relying on takeout or fast food.

While you are at it, you can add 200g Santé Barley Powder with Stevia to your meal prep. The good thing about the 200g Santé Barley Powder with Stevia is that it contains many vitamins and nutrients that can level up the benefits you will get from it. If your goal is to control your weight while having ample energy every day, the 200g Santé Barley Powder with Stevia has ingredients that can improve your gastrointestinal health, contain antioxidants, and enhance your immunity. 

Get a good night’s sleepA busy schedule can sometimes cause you to forgo sleep and rest. If this keeps happening, you are at risk of developing illnesses like strokes, obesity, depression, and more.

Moreover, getting a good night’s sleep will hinder you from performing best at your work. It makes you less alert and can adversely impact your work. A good night’s sleep allows you to perform at your best.

When work is done, make it a point to sleep. Tune out of social media and avoid drinking coffee in the middle of the day.  Lastly, don't feel guilty about getting your beauty rest; prioritize it every day.

On top of that, the 200g Santé Barley Powder with Stevia also promotes sleep because it contains GABA or γ-Aminobutyric acid that activates the GABAA receptors, which favors sleep. A glass of 200g Santé Barley Powder with Stevia daily will help you decrease sleep latency.

In this hustle culture, it may seem impossible to achieve a healthy and balanced lifestyle. However, staying healthy while you deal with work doesn't have to be hard. A little lifestyle change goes a long way.

"Small changes can make a lot of difference, and we in Santé want to promote this. Staying healthy does not have to be extravagant. Sometimes, a simple lifestyle change can make your life better. The 200g Santé Barley Powder with Stevia is created for everyone who shares the same problem. We hope that through this product, we get to share our mission of helping everyone to live more and do more." ~Joey Marcelo, Chief Executive Officer of Santé

Santé is one of the leading global manufacturers of products with organic barley grass (certified organic by BioGro) grown and harvested from New Zealand. With its mission to help people live better lives, the company promotes, produces, and distributes premier natural health and wellness products and services.

The ultimate comeback: Biogesic, Unilab partner with John Lloyd Cruz anew, strengthen unconditional care for Filipinos

Biogesic and Unilab reinforce their commitment in working toward a healthier Philippines

Biogesic and Unilab launch the Alagang Walang Pinipili campaign with long-time endorser John Lloyd Cruz

With the pandemic delivering a stark reminder that sickness can affect anyone anytime, Alagang Walang Pinipili serves as the shining expression of Biogesic’s unconditional care. It is likewise made reliable and safe with promises of Alagang Maaasahan and Alagang ‘di ka Ipapahamak—qualities now represented by Biogesic and Unilab’s renewed partnership with John Lloyd Cruz.

The generational actor makes his way home to the brand that launched his endorsement career, at a time when looking after one’s self and others rings ever important. Today, John Lloyd waves the iconic #Ingat salute once more as the partnership evolves into a deeper, more meaningful, more collaborative relationship: one that aspires to provide Alagang Walang Pinipili to Filipino families.

“Mahirap hindi maramdaman yung alaga at suporta [ng] mga taong nakatrabaho ko at nakilala ko sa Unilab, kasi gusto ka nila makita—kumusta ka ba, ano ba ang lagay mo, and pinapakinggan ka kung ano ang napipisil mong gawin.” ~John Lloyd Cruz, Biogesic’s long-standing endorser

John Lloyd first collaborated with Unilab in 2007 as the brand ambassador of Biogesic, the trusted branded paracetamol for headache and fever relief that has been caring for Filipinos for over 50 years. According to Alexander Panlilio, Unilab Corporate Vice President, the partnership takes on new meaning at the time of a global health crisis.

“We at Unilab and Biogesic have always believed in the value of caring and providing trusted quality healthcare to every Filipino family. Through the years, Biogesic has been synonymous with the iconic “Ingat” tagline and we endeavor to make this kind of alaga felt in many more Filipino households. With our Alagang Walang Pinipili campaign, we aim to further strengthen this connection we have built with our beloved consumers.” ~Alexander Panlilio, Unilab Corporate Vice President

Alexander Panlilio, Unilab Corporate Vice President

John Lloyd talks more about how ‘Ingat’ has also evolved for him personally because of his experience of Unilab and Biogesic’s care and support over the years.

“'Yung word na 'ingat' reminds me of a journey, [of] familiar people. Reminds me of warmth, the feeling of being home. Definitely, 'ingat' has a new meaning.” ~John Lloyd Cruz, Biogesic’s long-standing endorser

The partnership also serves as a manifestation of Alagang Unilab, the company’s commitment to provide genuine care to Filipinos, one quality medicine at a time.

John Lloyd himself has experienced Alagang Unilab firsthand and stresses his trust in the brand, the company, and the values they represent. 

“Yung mother's love and care talaga doon din naka anchor yung core ng Unilab at Biogesic. Doon lang ako magtitiwala, sa Alagang Unilab. 'Yung Alagang Unilab, 'yun yung alaga na ma-associate ko sa more than the physical na alaga. 'Yun yung alagang magtatawid sa'yo.” ~John Lloyd Cruz, Biogesic’s long-standing endorser

Biogesic is available in leading drugstores nationwide and online on several eCommerce platforms.

Patch your way to wellness with LifeWave’s wearable wellness products

There’s a company that’s making its presence felt in the health and wellness market because of its very unique products. The primary purpose of LifeWave, an advanced technology company, is to improve the health and wellness of every Filipino without the use of drugs or chemicals. What LifeWave offers are wearable wellness patches that boost cellular activity using light.

David Schmidt, LifeWave’s Founder and CEO

This technology was developed by David Schmidt, LifeWave’s Founder and CEO. Schmidt founded LifeWave in 2002 as a research company based on a newly patented technology for enhancing health through a novel form of phototherapy he had invented.

The United States Navy recognized Schmidt’s innovative work and invited him to join an elite research team that developed mini-subs or midget submarines. Schmidt attempted to help the crew of the mini-sub stay awake without the use of drugs. He investigated natural methods for increasing the body’s energy. Three years of research led to the creation of the Energy Enhancer Patch, the first LifeWave prototype.

LifeWave’s flagship product is X39®, a stem cell activator patch.

“Stem cells are the foundation of health. If you have less stem cells, you will get sick. It is your primary source of defense. As we grow older, the number of stem cells in our body decreases. What is nice about this product is that you wear it and you do not drink or take it. This is not a drug, not a pill, no chemicals added. It is a patented product.” ~Dang Gilera, LifeWave Philippines General Manager

LifeWave X39, LifeWave’s flagship product
She added that when you place a LifeWave X39® patch on the recommended acupressure points on your body, it will help grow your own stem cells. Most X39® product users attest that you feel the effects right away.

Immediate success
LifeWave was launched in August 2004 and was an immediate success, generating US$17 million in sales in its first year. Since then, LifeWave has grown into a multinational corporation with offices in the United States, Ireland, Taiwan and distribution in over 100 countires.

LifeWave made its way to the Philippines back in 2018 with a pre-launch in December. The grand launch happened in March 2019. However, the COVID-19 happened a year after and LifeWave’s plans had to be set aside.

LifeWave X39® is the company’s best-seller.  “It is clinically proven to provide the body with a level of health and vitality that users would not have experienced since their youth.” This advanced technology product provides health benefits like rapid pain relief, reduced inflammation, supports wound healing, energy and vitality, metal clarify, enhances sports performance, faster recovery from exercise and improved skin appearance.

The other products that Schmidt developed for LifeWave that are available in the Philippines aside from X39® include X49™,  Energy Enhancer®, IceWave®, Silent Nights®, Y-Age Aeon®, Y-Age® Glutathione, Y-Age® Carnosine, SP6® Complete, AcuLife, and Alavida™ Regenerating Trio LifeWave’s skin care products.

EdgePoint Infrastructure set to strengthen Philippines’ telecommunications landscape towards fulfilling national digitalisation drive.

Focused on strengthening outcome of common towers policy through innovation, investment and regional expertise.

EdgePoint Infrastructure (“EdgePoint”), a leading ASEAN-based independent telecommunications infrastructure company, via its subsidiary, Edgepoint Towers Inc. ("EdgePoint Philippines") is expanding options for telecommunications service providers in the country, in line with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT)’s Policy on Shared Passive Telecommunications Tower Infrastructure (also known as the Common Towers policy) that aims to strengthen communications services and digitalisation in the Philippines. In a briefing session in EdgePoint Philippines’ new headquarters here today, media representatives heard from Suresh Sidhu, Chief Executive Officer of EdgePoint Infrastructure and Alexander Kiel, Chief Executive Officer of EdgePoint Philippines on the company’s capacity to contribute to the country’s telecommunications industry, as an independent towerco.

EdgePoint Philippines officially entered the Philippine market in April this year, through a Sale & Leaseback agreement for 2,934 towers in the Luzon Island group, with Smart Communications Inc (“Smart”) and Digitel Mobile Philippines, Inc. (“DMPI”), both wholly-owned wireless communications and digital services subsidiaries of PLDT Inc. Following the sale, Smart is leasing the towers from EdgePoint Philippines to serve its mobile communications and high-speed internet connectivity needs in the region. The official handover of all towers is expected to be completed in the first half of 2023. To date, 2232 tower sites have been handed over to EdgePoint Philippines.
Suresh Sidhu, Chief Executive Officer of EdgePoint Infrastructure

“Our market position as an independent towerco aligns well with the DICT’s Common Towers policy that seeks to enhance connectivity while easing mobile network operators from the heavy capital expenditure required for building communications towers, allowing them to focus on improving services and reaching more underserved areas. The number of internet users in the Philippines has more than tripled in the past decade from 23 million in 2010 to 76 million in 2022 and significant investments are needed to meet the demands of this growth. Philippines has a dense number of users per tower which affects overall user experience and the country needs a large number of new towers built to fill this gap. EdgePoint is ready to bring investment, innovation, best practices and expertise into the Philippines to address the nation’s connectivity needs. We are focused on driving the deployment of world class connectivity solutions in the telecommunications landscapes across our footprint, and being the leading 5G enabler for our mobile network operators.” ~Suresh Sidhu, Chief Executive Officer of EdgePoint Infrastructure

Kiel added that while EdgePoint Philippines has been focused on deploying the right shared infrastructure for mobile network operators, they are also committed to optimising the vast local experience available to drive growth in the country.

Alexander Kiel, Chief Executive Officer of EdgePoint Philippines

“We want to be a part of the future of telecommunications in the Philippines, as we enhance connectivity in the country, we want to also develop the ecosystem, create new job opportunities and introduce green solutions and practices. Since we entered the market, we have created more than 100 new jobs directly and more than 1000 indirectly, and we expect to double this number by end of 2024. As we bring our regional best practices to the country, we plan to leverage the strengths of our local network of vendors, which has grown significantly since we started. Our role as nation building partners go beyond telecommunications infrastructure, as we commit to strengthening the economy by building a reliable supply chain of local vendors and suppliers. The recent pandemic has shown us the importance of self-sufficiency within the industry and we hope to create an ecosystem that can operate independently from other countries and markets.” ~Alexander Kiel, Chief Executive Officer of EdgePoint Philippines

Supporting the country’s recently announced National Broadband Plan (NBP) Kiel.

“In the Philippines, there is an average of 4,090 users per tower, with mobile download speeds of 22.5 Mbps. The Philippines has historically lagged in ASEAN but we are now seeing much needed policy reforms and new investments for infrastructure, in line with the government's push to ensure that all Filipinos have access to broadband capability. EdgePoint’s capabilities are in line with the NBP, and we are committed to partnering with the Government in deploying not only the right infrastructure towards ensuring universal, faster and affordable internet access but also in introducing sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions. We will start rolling out our first trial sites featuring a mix of renewable energy and efficient generators in 2023 and target to increase the roll-out of these sites upon successful completion of the trials. We believe these energy efficient solutions are important not only from an environmental perspective but also in bridging the digital divide as it allows us to increase the reach of our communication networks into areas which are currently underserved.” ~Alexander Kiel, Chief Executive Officer of EdgePoint Philippines
Sidhu added that one of EdgePoint’s key strategies is to always bring its regional best practices to local markets in which they operate. 

“Our capacity for building leading-edge telecom structures, providing next generation solutions as well as introducing green technology and sustainable solutions give us an edge in meeting the needs of mobile network operators in the country. We are confident that a more comprehensive and modern communications infrastructure will support the Government’s drive to transform the Philippines into a globally competitive, digitally-enabled economy in line with the Digital Cities 2025 plan” ~Suresh Sidhu, Chief Executive Officer of EdgePoint Infrastructure
The Digital Cities 2025 initiative aims to drive inclusive growth in the countryside by transforming high potential areas into bustling IT and Business Process Management (IT-BPM) hubs to grow the Philippine economy within the next five years.

EdgePoint is focused on building and leasing shareable, fibre-integrated, and leading-edge telecom structures as well as providing solutions such as small cells and in-building systems. The company aims to be an industry leader through scale and innovation, driving operational efficiencies through the adoption of analytics and digital technologies.
