Royale's Immuno Boost helps boost your immune system against COVID-19 Virus


Eating nutritious food helps prevent sickness

It had been said time and again in the vernacular, "Bawal magkasakit." It is especially true in this day and age because we are in the middle of a pandemic--the spread of Covid-19 virus is something that we should all avoid at all costs. Thus, it is important that we eat healthy and nutritious foods. 

There's an old adage that says, "An apple a day keeps a doctor away." It may have a grain of truth behind it after all. Eating nutritious foods rich in certain vitamins help us to strengthen our immune system to fight off illnesses. 

Eat foods rich in Vitamin C—Known as the biggest immune system boosters of all-time, Vitamin C deficiency can actually make you more prone to sickness. The good news is we can get vitamin C by loading up our body with oranges, grapefruits, tangerines, calamansi (Philippine lemon), strawberries, bell peppers, spinach, kale and broccoli—all of which are rich in Vitamin C. Regular intake of vitamin C is essential for one’s health because our body doesn’t produce or store vitamin C. 

Oranges are naturally rich in Vitamin C that prevents illness

Vitamin B6 is also equally important as it supports biochemical reactions to our immune system. Vitamin B6-rich foods include chicken (that’s why we are often served with chicken soup when we get sick) and cold-water fish like salmon and tuna. It can also be found in green vegetables and in chickpeas—the main ingredient in making hummus.

Vitamin E is another powerful antioxidant to fight off infections. Consume nuts, seeds and spinach—they are also helpful because such foods are rich in vitamin E. 

While vitamins and supplements can help fill in the gaps in your diet, the best way to load up on essential nutrients is to get them straight from food. I once read that we had to create a wide variety of foods in our plate. It should be a must to make every color of the rainbow to be well-represented on our plate. Not only will our food look enticing enough to eat, but we will also be receiving the necessary nutrients with the health-boosting vitamins possible. 

Taking regular food supplements or vitamins may also help boost our immune system. One great example would be Royale's Immuno Boost. Immuno Boost contains the necessary Beta Glucan (β-Glucan) which has been tested and proven to protect against various infection, bacteria, viruses and harmful pathogenic microorganisms. It also contains cancer prevention and progression because of its synergestic anti-tumor effects with monoclonal antibodies and cancer chemotherapeutics.

Larvicidal Efficacy of Natular DT against Aedes aegypti


 Dengue is the fastest spreading vector-borne disease creating a million infections annually extending over more than a hundred different countries around the globe. Dengue still has no treatment as of this writing but the disease can be early managed if diagnosed at an early stage. Dengue virus is known to be transmitted by day-biting of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes.  It can be asymptomatic but usually, the most common symptoms include high-grade fever, joint pain, and pink/red rashes. It is most common in tropical countries like the Philippines where dengue is considered an endemic across all its regions. While most patient cases recover without any serious complications, others may lead to dengue hemorrhagic fever which can lead to death. 

I was once a dengue patient a few years back and I remember I was even in denial about acquiring it. I used to lather my skin with insect repellent products and would wear long pants to prevent mosquito bites. My mom would also regularly clean our surroundings to make sure no mosquito larvae would be able to live near our household to keep us safe from dengue hemorrhagic fever. I never thought I'd be having dengue, but I did and it's not easy to have it. So as parents, we'd like to make sure that no one in the family would have to experience the same thing that we had gone through right? 

So what is the best and most effective way to prevent dengue and kill mosquito larvae? Larvicides are used and highly recommended by experts because they help destroy bacteria that destroy larvae and genetic modification of mosquitoes to reduce their fertility. 

Luckily, UPL Philippines Inc. recently introduces Natular DT Larvicide. What's so nice about it is that it is environment-friendly. It is an easy-to-use, bi-layer tablet that prevents mosquito larvae from biting adults. Natular DT is made specifically to address the common breeding sites around residential properties that serve as breeding ground for mosquitoes. 

Natural DT is a patented tablet from UPL Philippines Inc.

Doc Paolo Bellosillo epitomizes the Filipino Resilience


Doc Paolo Bellosillo

Most people say it is during the most trying times in someone's life that true character is revealed. It is during these times when we are being tested to our limits and what we make of ourselves are the ones that unleash our true selves. Doc Paolo Bellosillo has been helping people because it is part of what he had embraced early in life. In fact, he learned and studied naturopathy with the same vision. So it is but natural for him to lend a hand especially during these crucial times of pandemic. He has proven to be a model citizen with his charitable acts of service. 

An international specialist of St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital, Doc Pao was proclaimed Most Outstanding Private Citizen by the Philippine National Police. Bellisillo clearly epitomizes the true Filipino resiliency. He did not allow the pandemic to prohibit him from touching people's lives and making a difference by helping his fellowmen. 

Indefatigable Doc Bellosillo tried to aid those who are in dire need and showed his utmost support towards the frontliners. He chose to stay out in the field so that the others can stay home safely.
