|A sachet of Lola Remedios Food Supplement|
It's quite difficult to accept the fact that I'm going old. It's hard to believe I'd be in my early 40's come September and here I am about to share with you a product review about herbal food supplement! So yes, I had to admit I am in dire need of Lola Remedios sachets. It has been a staple in my household since I usually get sore throats and I was told to have so many lamig (lactic acid) or muscle spasms most of the time. Judging by the schedule I have, I can't afford to make a quick trip to the nearest spa to get a massage in order for those lactic acids to be "broken down." Hence, reaching a sachet of the good reliable Lola Remedios is the best thing I can do each time I seek an immediate soothing remedy to my muscle spasm.
Yes, I'm not ashamed to say that I turn to over-the-counter herbal food supplements each time I would experience minor discomfort like sore throat, headaches, back pains, among many others. While it is still best to see your physician, it is perfectly fine to take them for minor health issues. And as they say, if symptoms persists, go see your doctor.

Now, what is it about Lola Remedios that I liked about? Those who knew me personally can attest to the fact that I am into anything minty. Lola Remedios tastes like your good ól mentholated candy. It is made of thick syrup with a soothing menthol flavor and it is so convenient because it comes in individual sachets that you can perfectly stash in your bag or put into your pocket.

It is also very affordable at P10 pesos each (SRP). Each box contains 12 sachets with 15ml tonic each. It is said to be made from all-natural ingredients too. We will discuss that later on. It's easy to drink too. You just take one sachet, give it a good shake and just pour the contents into your mouth or you give the sachet a sip.

Worry not, it is FDA approved. It thus gives you an assurance that it had passed a stringent test and it is very effective. Lola Remedios isn't exactly a medicine and it has no approved therapeutic claim but it is effective in preventing full blown sicknesses like coughs, colds, flu, headaches and body aches.
