Better sleep, better mornings, better tomorrows

Waking up to a great start in the morning may be one of the most wonderful feeling that most people in this fast-paced life rarely get. It is usually brought about by a really good break from stress the night before, or, an excitement for whatever they look forward to for the day ahead. Most importantly, great mornings come from having a good and sound sleep throughout the night. And having good quality sleep on regular days also brings great benefits to everyone’s disposition for the day ahead, especially with their performance at school or at work.

Imagine a mother waking up from good quality sleep. Having slept so well through the night, she will have more energy to prepare the whole family’s breakfast before sending them off for the day. Her husband will also be in a more positive disposition waking and will always be ready to take on another whole day’s worth of challenges at work. Kids on the other hand, could perform better at school because they will also have more energy to participate in class and take in all the lessons from all the lectures they will encounter through the day.

The benefits of a wonder machine to a diabetic

Over the years, diabetes has become one of the top causes of death in the Philippines according World Health Organization’s 2012 statistical profile of the country. The International Diabetes Federation also notes that the Philippines has become one of the world’s emerging diabetes hotspots, ranking as the top 15 in the world for diabetes prevalence where 4 million people are diagnosed with the diseases, and possibly a large unknown number of those who are unaware that they have diabetes. While diabetes can be passed down through heredity, factors like having an unhealthy lifestyle and becoming overweight or obese may contribute in developing diabetes, especially those who are in their middle age or older.

Diabetes could be kept at bay, if people would just lead on to a better and a healthier lifestyle, like Lumen Tamayo who was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes after she gave birth to her second child. It wasn’t easy to take in at first, but she turned around all of these ill-feelings about her diabetes and used it as a motivation to lead a healthier lifestyle. As she started taking regular exercise and preparing more healthy meals for herself, she gained a more positive disposition in dealing with her diabetes. And knowing that stress could shoot up her sugar level, she got into short meditations to ease off the tension.

As she progresses through her struggle against diabetes, she was faced with yet another challenge in maintaining healthy routine, especially with her diet. She needs to take in six to nine servings of preferably raw fruits and vegetables every day, which is quite an overwhelming task to achieve. It takes a lot of time and effort to prepare all those fruits and vegetables, not to mention eating it with her regular meals makes it even harder to take in.

Fortunately, a friend of hers suggested that she ought to try green juicing and after consulting with her doctor about this plan, she went out to look for the most suitable juicer that fits her needs. That is when she found a “healthmate” and a versatile kitchen assistant with Matstone Multi-Purpose Slow Juicer. It was an easy pick for Lumen because of the wonderful things Matstone can do for her needs. This wonder machine could easily juice green leafy vegetables including its stems, much like malunggay, which Lumen usually include in her juice along with carrots, cucumbers, green apples, and native ampalaya that is known to help manage blood sugar levels.

It is the only slow juicer in the country that carries the horizontal design that is capable of reliable functionality, which guarantees that there will be no stuck up nor leakage while using this wonder machine. As a versatile kitchen assistant, having seven more functions aside from juicing— pasta maker, sorbet maker, milk extractor, ice shaver, grinder, and mincer— Lumen also uses Matstone as a vegetable slicer to prepare her diabetic-friendly wonder salad made from ampalaya, pineapple, and radish.

Lumen highly recommends the Matstone Multi-Purpose Slow juicer to anyone who needs a wonderful “healthmate” as they recover their health from diseases, or to those who want to prevent one from ever coming into their lives and lead a more healthy and vibrant lifestyle.

For those who want to have their own wonder machine at home, MATSTONE® Horizontal Slow Juicer is offering PhP 2,500 discount for cash and straight transactions. This Wonder Holiday promo runs from October 20 to December 31, 2016 and can be availed from participating dealers such as Rustan’s True Value, SM Home, SM Appliance, Landmark, Anson’s , All Home, Abensons, Handyman and other leading stores nationwide. PER DTI FTEB-SPD Permit No. 11699 Series of 2016.

100% Organic Pearl Coix: A safer way to whiten skin

Having white porcelain skin has been a goal for many people in the past and more so today. People go to great lengths to achieve healthy looking skin. With all the skin whitening solutions available in the market, like lotions, creams, pills, and injections, many people have grown anxious and more meticulous in choosing the best one that suits their needs.

Though lots of these products promise to give you the fair skin you want, not all products are safe and healthy for your body. Toxic chemicals may cause more damage than you can imagine. Better be safe than sorry, and choose organic products that can deliver better and healthier results.  Amidst a myriad of choices, there is a top product, attested for its effectiveness and safety for decades now.
The 100% Organic Pearl Coix, a best seller in Japan and other countries, is now available in the Philippines. It is manufactured by Fine Japan Co. Ltd., a pharmaceutical company that extracts potent ingredients from plants and animals to produce natural product.

The 100% Organic Pearl Coix is sourced from the coix plant, which has been used for medicinal purposes since the olden times. For centuries, this plant was used to lower blood pressure, treat abdominal problems and indigestion, relieve muscle pain, and many more.

The coix plant also contains properties that reduce melanin in the skin and treat various skin conditions. However, the seed or the coix pearl is not so easy to consume and absorb because of its hard shell. To make it easier for the body to absorb, Fine Japan Co. Ltd. removed the hard shell and transformed the contents into a powder which can be mixed with your favorite beverage. With this, the powder form is 10 times more potent than any other brand containing other whitening agents.
This miracle drink not only reduces melanin in the skin but also promotes good digestion. It also has a diuretic effect, thus ridding the body of toxins. With toxins out of the body, the skin becomes clearer and more radiant than ever.

All you need to do is mix one sachet of 100% Organic Pearl Coix with water or your favorite drink daily and you are good to go. The good news is that this miracle drink does not only whiten skin, but it can also treat skin problems like acne and warts. So you do not only get lighter skin, but you also end up with a flawless skin that can make anyone’s jaw drop.

Continued use will ensure that your skin will stay supple, fair and smooth. So say hello to rosy fair skin!
