Sekaya Moringa capsules

Sekaya's long-standing collaboration with the Moringaling Philippines Foundation, Inc. (MPFI) has not only resulted in a high-quality moringa supplement, but has also made major contributions to the MPFI.

Creating a globally competitive Philippine moringa industry. Malunggay, popular among Filipinos, is a galactagogue that helps enhance milk supply in breastfeeding mothers, as well as a nutritious powerhouse rich in vitamins C and A, calcium, and iron, potassium, as well as a good source of antioxidants, amino acids, and anti-inflammatory compounds.

Synnovate (Unilab's natural products division) produces an EU-certified organic moringa supplement, sourcing 100% locally through farms in the MPFI network, which promotes the research, development, and standardization of moringa grown in the country.

Mistakes to avoid before planning a lesson


When you are a teacher, a big part of the challenges that you face involves getting your lessons right. Unless they are well planned from the start, it is much less likely that they will run smoothly and your pupils will get the learning experience they richly need and deserve. As well as learning a few of the top tips that will help your lessons to go smoothly, it is also worth knowing and understanding a few of the major mistakes you should avoid. This way, you know what not to do as well as what to do, which will certainly help you out in a big way. So, let’s look closer into a few of the mistakes that are made time and time again in lesson planning.

Not having a clear end goal

While you can plan a fantastic lesson with all the bells and whistles using resources like, if you do not have a clear end goal in mind, it is much more likely that your lesson will meander on without a purpose. Therefore, you need to start with the idea of what you want the kids to take away from the class in the first place. This way, everything you plan out will have this firmly in mind and be geared toward this direction. While you may have the best idea for a lesson in the world, if you don’t set it up properly, it will not achieve its aim and will be ultimately useless.

Taking exactly the same lesson from someone else

While it is all well and good to get some resources from elsewhere, you should avoid simply copying and pasting a lesson plan from somewhere else, as your students will not be able to learn effectively that way. This will likely lead to a situation where you will become complacent, and it also won’t be adapted to the individual needs of your class at the heart of the plan. Even if you are the one who planned the lesson in the past, it is still going to be worth taking a closer look to determine whether it needs some

Not prepping all the materials thoroughly

A big part of the lesson will come down to the materials you require to complete the job. This means ensuring that you prep all of your materials ahead of time and check that they are all in the right condition. For example, many teachers rely on tech in the modern world to help them out in their lessons. However, it would help if you made sure that there are no technical issues that will derail your lesson before it has even had a chance to get properly started.

Common Gynecological Concerns Women Should Not Ignore


Women’s health is a topic of utmost importance, and it’s essential for every woman to be aware of common gynecological concerns that can affect their well-being. While some issues may be minor, others could indicate a more significant problem. Regular check-ups and prompt attention to these concerns can help women maintain good gynecological health. This article will discuss some common gynecological concerns that women should not ignore.

1. Irregular Menstrual Cycles

Irregular periods, whether they are unusually heavy, frequent, or absent, can be a sign of various underlying issues, including hormonal imbalances, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), thyroid problems, or uterine conditions. Tracking your menstrual cycles and discussing any irregularities with your gynecologist or a specialist clinic for women’s health, like the London Pregnancy Clinic, if you believe the cause of your missed period is the result of pregnancy, but the home tests aren’t 100% clear. Whenever you have issues with your cycles, it is crucial to identify and address the root cause.

2. Painful Periods (Dysmenorrhea)

While some discomfort during menstruation is normal, severe pain (dysmenorrhea) that interferes with daily life could be indicative of conditions like endometriosis, fibroids, or pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). These conditions require medical evaluation and treatment to manage symptoms effectively.

3. Abnormal Vaginal Bleeding

Any unusual vaginal bleeding between periods, after menopause, or during sexual intercourse should be investigated promptly. It can be a sign of infections, hormonal imbalances, cervical or uterine polyps, or even cervical cancer. Early detection is crucial for the best possible outcomes.

Jewelry You Need For Your Wedding Day


Selecting the right jewelry for your wedding day is an essential part of completing your bridal look. The jewelry you choose should complement your dress, enhance your overall appearance, and hold personal significance. If you are getting married, use this guide to help you decide on the jewelry you need for your wedding day:

1. Earrings

Earrings are a staple for most brides. The style you choose will depend on your hairstyle and personal preferences. Stud earrings are timeless and work well with most hairstyles, while drop earrings or chandelier earrings can add a touch of glamour. If you have a simple dress, you might opt for statement earrings to add a pop of drama. Pearls, diamonds, and cubic zirconia are popular for bridal earrings, but you can also choose colored gemstones to match your wedding theme or incorporate something blue.

2. Necklace

Whether you decide to wear a necklace or not depends on the neckline of your dress. For a strapless or sweetheart neckline, a delicate pendant or a statement necklace can be a stunning addition. If your dress has a higher neckline or intricate detailing, you might skip the necklace to let the dress shine.

3. Bracelet

A bracelet can add elegance and sophistication to your bridal ensemble. Tennis bracelets, pearl bracelets, or delicate bangles are popular choices. Your choice should coordinate with your other jewelry pieces and fit comfortably on your wrist. Ensure that the bracelet doesn't clash with the fabric of your dress or compete with other accessories. Everything should complement one another.

4. Rings

While you'll undoubtedly have your engagement ring on your wedding day, don't forget about your wedding band. These rings symbolize your commitment to each other, so it's essential to choose a band that complements your engagement ring. Whether you opt for traditional wedding rings by or a unique design, ensure that they fit well with your engagement ring and that both you and your partner are happy with them.

How to Prepare Your House Going into Winter


As the leaves change colors and the air turns crisp, it's a sure sign that winter is on the horizon. Preparing your home for the colder months is not only essential for your comfort but also for the well-being of your property. Getting your house ready for winter can save you money on energy bills, prevent expensive repairs, and ensure a cozy and secure living environment. Here are some crucial steps to help you prepare your house as winter approaches.

1. Inspect and Clean Your Gutters

One of the first tasks on your winter preparation checklist should be to inspect and clean your gutters. Leaves, debris, and other blockages can clog your gutters and lead to water damage if not addressed. Proper drainage is essential during the winter to prevent ice dams and roof leaks.

2. Check Your Roof for Damage

Inspect your roof thoroughly; you're looking for any damage, such as missing or damaged shingles. Ensure that there are no leaks or weak spots that could be vulnerable to snow and ice. Repairing roof issues before winter arrives can prevent costly water damage.

3. Seal Windows and Doors

Gaps around windows or doors will clearly lead to heat loss, making your home less energy- efficient and increasing your heating bills. Seal any gaps and cracks with weatherstripping or caulk to keep the cold air out and the warm air in.

4. Service Your Heating System

Before you need it, have your heating system serviced by professional St Albans plumbers. This includes checking and cleaning your furnace or boiler, replacing air filters, and ensuring that your thermostat is working correctly. A well-maintained heating system will keep your home warm and save energy.

5. Insulation

Proper insulation is crucial to maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature during the winter. Check your attic, walls, and basement for adequate insulation. Consider adding more insulation if needed to improve energy efficiency.

6. Winterize Your Outdoor Faucets

Disconnect and drain any water sources outside, such as hoses and faucets, to prevent freezing and potential damage. Installing frost-proof hose bibs or using faucet covers can also protect against freezing temperatures.

7. Trim Trees and Shrubs

Trim any overhanging branches or trees near your home that could become heavy with snow and ice. This reduces the risk of branches falling and damaging your property during winter storms.

8. Clean and Inspect Your Fireplace

Get your fireplace professionally cleaned and inspected to ensure it'a safe to use. Stock up on firewood if you plan to use your fireplace as a supplementary heating source.

9. Prepare for Power Cuts

Winter storms can often lead to power outages. Have a backup plan in place, such as a generator or alternative heating source like a wood-burning stove, to keep your home warm and safe during extended power disruptions.

10. Test Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

The winter season often means increased use of heating appliances, which can pose a higher risk of fire and carbon monoxide leaks. Test and replace batteries if needed in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure they work.

By taking these steps to prepare your house for winter, you can ensure a more comfortable and worry-free season. Not only will you stay warm and cozy, but you'll also protect your home from the harsh elements that come with the colder months. Winter preparation is an investment in the comfort, safety, and value of your property.

Whether you opt for a classic solitaire or a custom-designed masterpiece, your wedding ring should reflect your love story and serve as a constant reminder of your commitment to each other. Take your time exploring various styles, and don't hesitate to consult with a jeweler who can help you find the perfect wedding ring to symbolize your everlasting love.

How to Feel More Confident in Pictures


Given that almost all phones have cameras, people are constantly capturing and sharing photos of themselves. Whether it's for social media profiles, family albums, or professional headshots, being in front of the camera is a common occurrence. However, not everyone feels confident when photographed. If you find yourself feeling self-conscious or uncomfortable in pictures, there are several strategies that can boost your confidence and improve your appearance in photographs.

Find Your Best Angles

Experiment with different angles to find your most flattering poses. Turning slightly to the side or angling your body can create a more visually appealing look. Try taking test shots to see which angles work best for you.

Relax Your Face and Body

Many people tense up their facial muscles and body when in front of the camera, leading to forced smiles or awkward expressions. Before the photo is taken, take a deep breath and consciously relax your facial and other body muscles. A natural and relaxed expression will make you appear more confident. Plus, relaxing your shoulders and letting your arms hang naturally can make you look more at ease.

How to Make Your House Feel Extra Cozy


Creating a cozy atmosphere in your home can turn it into a warm and inviting haven where you can relax and unwind. Whether you're looking to transform your living space for a special occasion or just want to make it cozier for everyday living, there are various ways to achieve that snug and comfortable ambiance. Here are some tips to help you make your house feel extra cozy.

How To Build A Transitional Wardrobe


The fashion world is always changing. Trends come and go in the blink of an eye. However, amidst this constant flux, there's something to be said about the timeless elegance and versatility of a transitional wardrobe. A transitional wardrobe is a collection of clothing pieces that effortlessly take you from one season to another, ensuring you always look stylish and put-together, no matter the weather. Here's how to build a transitional wardrobe that stands the test of time.

Invest in Quality Basics

The foundation of a great transitional wardrobe lies in high-quality, versatile basics. These are the pieces that can be mixed and matched with ease, serving as the building blocks for various outfits. Think classic white button-down shirts, well-fitted denim jeans, a tailored blazer, and a versatile black dress. These timeless items can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. Going to a luxury boutique like will guarantee that your staple clothing items will last.

Embrace Neutral Colors 

Neutral colors like black, white, beige, gray, and navy are the unsung heroes of a transitional wardrobe. They are incredibly versatile and can seamlessly transition from one season to another. Neutrals can be layered, accessorized, and combined to create an array of stylish looks. Plus, they are less likely to go out of style, ensuring your wardrobe remains relevant for years to come.

Layering is Key

One of the secrets to building a transitional wardrobe is mastering the art of layering. Layering allows you to adapt to changing temperatures and creates visually interesting outfits. Consider investing in lightweight cardigans, trench coats, scarves, and vests that can be added or removed as needed. Layering not only keeps you warm in the cold but also adds depth and texture to your outfits, so it is a double win.

Choose Seasonal Statement Pieces 

While the core of your wardrobe should consist of timeless basics, you can add a touch of current fashion trends with seasonal statement pieces. These could be a trendy handbag, a stylish pair of boots, or a colorful accessory. By incorporating these items strategically, you can keep your wardrobe fresh without sacrificing its transitional quality.

Opt for Versatile Footwear

Your choice of footwear can make or break a transitional wardrobe. Invest in versatile shoes that can transition between seasons effortlessly. A pair of comfortable, stylish sneakers can be paired with jeans or a summer dress, while ankle boots can be worn with both skirts and trousers. Having a few versatile options in your shoe collection will expand your outfit possibilities.

Pay Attention to Fabric

Choosing the right fabric is crucial for a transitional wardrobe. Look for fabrics that work well in both warm and cold weather. Natural materials like cotton, wool, and cashmere are excellent choices as they are breathable and provide insulation when needed. Avoid extreme fabrics that are too heavy for summer or too thin for winter.

Organize and Rotate

Maintaining a transitional wardrobe also involves organization and rotation. Keep your wardrobe organized by season, placing off-season items in storage when not in use. This not only helps you see what you have but also makes it easier to plan outfits. Rotating your wardrobe ensures that all your clothing gets equal wear and prevents overuse of certain items.

Motorbike Maintenance 101: Keeping Your Ride in Top Shape


Owning a motorbike is not just about the thrill of the open road; it also comes with the responsibility of regular maintenance. Proper maintenance is essential to ensure your ride stays in top shape, performs reliably, and, most importantly, keeps you safe. Therefore, take the time to explore the basics of motorbike maintenance. This guide helps riders understand the key tasks and schedules to keep their two-wheelers running smoothly.

What are the Various Beneficial Properties of Rose Oil?


Rose oil is among the most popular essential oils known to us and that’s not without good reason. As observed in several studies conducted over the years, rose oil has a wide range of beneficial properties. Let’s go over some of those beneficial properties next.


Rose oil in general has an impressive list of anti-aging properties that help in keeping the skin free of wrinkles, fine lines, laugh lines, sagging, and loss of lustre to name a few. However, the anti-aging properties of Afghan rose oil are even stronger than its regular counterpart. As seen on Rena Roots, Afghan rose serum can restart and/or boost collagen production to preserve your skin’s natural suppleness for years to come. When combined with other potent anti-aging ingredients like hyaluronic acid and vitamins, rose serum gains even more potency as a hydrating agent for the skin.

Pain Relief

In 2015, a study found that rose oil can have pain relieving properties when it’s used in aromatherapy. The study showed rose oil scent to be particularly effective in relieving post surgical pain for most of the participants. It should be noted that the participants were all children, who naturally have a low threshold for pain. Therefore, the pain-relieving capabilities of rose oil scent through aromatherapy can be even more significant for adults.

Spruce Up Your Floors: Transforming Your Space with Style and Elegance

Your floors play a vital role in setting the tone and ambiance of your living space. Whether you have hardwood, tile, carpet, laminate, or any other type of flooring, giving them a makeover can breathe new life into your home. This article will explore some creative and practical ways to spruce up your floors, turning them into eye-catching features that enhance the overall aesthetic of your space.

Refinishing Hardwood Floors

If you're lucky enough to have hardwood floors, refinishing them can make a world of difference. Over time, hardwood floors can lose their luster and develop scratches and dents. A professional refinishing job can restore their natural beauty, giving your home an instant facelift. You can also change the stain color to match your evolving interior design preferences.

Area Rugs for Comfort and Style

Area rugs are a versatile and easy way to transform your floors. They not only add warmth and comfort but also introduce color, texture, and style to any room. Choose rugs that complement your existing décor, or go for a bold statement piece that becomes the focal point of the space. Experiment with different sizes, shapes, and patterns to create a unique look.
