How Pholigo Powder has helped my constipation problem

Pholigo Oligosaccharides

Pholigo is made from all- natural plant derived ingredients. When I first heard about it, I was a bit hesitant to try the said product. First, because it was the kind of product I’m not entirely familiar with. 

Fructo-oligosaccharides are made up of plant sugars linked in chains. They are taken from asparagus, Jerusalem artichokes, and soybeans, or produced in the laboratory. People use these sugars to make medicine.

Fructo-oligosaccharides are also used as prebiotics. Prebiotics act as food for “good” bacteria in the intestine. Don't confuse prebiotics with probiotics such as lactobacillus, bifidobacteria, and saccharomyces, which are live organisms that are good for health. People sometimes take probiotics by mouth to increase the number in their intestine.

Fructo-oligosaccharides pass undigested into the colon where they increase bowel mass and promote growth of certain bacteria that are thought to be beneficial.

Pholigo is a globally known natural plant-derived prebiotic powder used as a nutrition fortifier. Aside from its innate good taste, its excellent versatility in application makes it the perfect addition to any food or beverage you normally consume.

The prebiotic effects of Pholigo has been confirmed in numerous scientific researches and clinic trials. It is proven to nourish and support the growth as well as the activities of beneficial bacteria in the colon, thus improving general health and well-being.

Why you should think twice about posting photos of your kid online

The internet can provide fantastic tools for sharing special moments from your child’s early years with family and friends. And online parenting forums, networks and blogs often provide valuable support and reassurance through parenting’s ups and downs.
But before you share, you should give thought to exactly who can see photos and comments featuring your child, and how this online footprint might affect your child in years to come.
Most of us share so much of ourselves and our lives online – and parents are no different. With today’s moms and dads being more internet savvy than ever, it’s not surprising to see many posting about their children (even before they’re born) regularly. This predilection, and sometimes, over enthusiasm to share has been referred to as “sharenting.”

The constant documentation of our kids is so prevalent that it’s been normalized – but the thing is, it shouldn’t be. If you’re part of this trend, you should realize that you’re creating a digital footprint for your child way before he or she has any say about it, and that digital identity is going stay whether or not he or she likes it. It’s easy to forget how these can be potentially harmful in the future, what with your overwhelming feelings of pride and joy.

Time for a reality check, here are four ways sharenting online might put your child at risk, and why you should think twice before posting all those baby pics.

Sharing online can invade your child’s privacy. Parents are in effect taking control of their child’s digital identity, without their consent. Those funny bath time snaps and other sensitive photos may impact their future social lives (sure, you think it’s cute now, but that isn’t you in the embarrassing photo), and even employment, and undermine their trust in you. 

Your child’s identity can be stolen. There’s been quite a number of digital kidnapping incidents in recent years. It’s a kind of identity theft that happens when another person takes the photos of a child from social media, creates a new name and identity, and then claims the child as their own.  

Online predators could come after your little one. You need to be extra careful before sharing any kind of information about your child. Online predators are adult users who seek to exploit vulnerable children for sexual or other abusive purposes. They can get your kid’s photos and videos and post them on child pornography websites and other disturbing forums.

You can’t take anything back. Once posted, those photos of your child will always be out there on a server. Even if you do tighten your privacy settings, anything shared online can, with a few indiscreet clicks, become public property.

It’s understandable to want to share about your kids, just be cautious about it and keep in mind the implications it might have on their future. It’s great to find a safe space that guarantees your and, quite importantly, your children’s privacy like Viber. As one of the country’s top communications apps, Viber prioritizes its users’ data privacy to allow everyone to connect and share securely.

Its end-to-end encryption security measure basically means that anything you send becomes coded and stays that way until your intended recipient gets it. No one else—not even Viber—can read any of your messages or see any of your photos and videos.

Viber’s security features give you full control over your data—you can delete messages any time and even add an extra level of privacy through the Secret Chats, which allows users to set a time limit on individual messages and control how long they are visible to the recipient before they disappear.

As Viber helps you connect and build stronger relationships with your loved ones here and around the world, the communications app continues its efforts in securing your privacy and security so you can share freely.

About Rakuten Viber:
At Rakuten Viber, we connect people. No matter who they are, or where they are from. Our global user base has access to a range of features like one-on-one chats, video calls, group messaging, and updates and discussions with their favorite brands and celebrities.

Share happiness and Love this Mother’s Day with MAYA’s Happy Mug Cakes

A mother's love will always be comforting and special

Being a mother doesn’t come with a manual or a textbook. It’s instinctive, you get a tip here, a pointer there. But being a good mother isn’t taught—it really comes from within. Being a mother is probably one of the noblest and difficult jobs in the world. Once you become a mom, you’ll forever be a mom. You’re a mom 24/7—you can’t afford to take a leave. As Mother’s Day approaches, let’s do our part to honor our mothers and make them feel special.

MAYA's Happy Mug Cakes

Celebrate Mother’s Day by making your mom MAYA Happy Mug Cakes. MAYA offers a quick and easy way to make your mom feel extra special on the day dedicated for her. With the convenient mug cake mix, happiness comes easy through these little sweets which you and your family can share.

Casa Corazon Events Place and Meer Catering Food Supplier for South Luzon Weddings

All couples had to undergo such wedding prep worries.

As a young child, it’s always been my dream to be wed to the man of my dreams—someone who’s God-fearing, someone smart, responsible, someone who will truly love me for who I really am (both my good and bad side), someone who will get along well with my family and who will also be a good provider and a loving husband-to-be and father to my future kids (if at all I’d be blessed with a child).

I knew that most women like me also had their respective dream weddings. But saying the proverbial “I Do” isn’t exactly a walk in the park. That’s why you need to prepare well before your big day. Attending a bridal fair actually helps. While hiring an event planner might just be the answer to your problems, it might be a little expensive and maybe beyond the couple’s budget.

Casa Corazon Events Place, Resort, Museum Restaurant

Aside from deciding your bridal theme and the church where you guys would exchange vows, it is also equally important to know where the reception will be held and who will provide the catering for your guests.

The hilly yet grand entrance to Casa Corazon

Purple Plum Fairy recently attended the Casa Corazon Bridal Fair. Casa Corazon Events Place, for those who aren’t familiar yet is a quaint private resort up on a hilly part of Barangay Sinisian, Lemery Batangas. You won’t get lost, it’s really easy to locate.
