Without a functioning liver, a person cannot survive. Our liver is a very important organ in our body- and it serves a lot of purpose such as:
Stores important vitamins, energy and minerals, and releases them to the blood.
Helps the body to resist infections by producing immune factors and removing bacteria from the blood.
Converts the food you eat into energy, and produces chemicals your brain needs and spinal cord needs.
Detoxifies by metabolizing and expelling drugs, alcohol, and environmental toxins from your system.
Helps digest your food and absorb important nutrients through the bile it produces.

Having said all of the above, our liver is probably one of our body’s most overworked organs. That’s why we should take care of it and shouldn’t add more stress on this “Silent Hero”.
There are many factors that can affect your liver health such as prolonged medication, viruses, parasites, unhealthy lifestyle(drinking alcohol, smoking etc.) and obesity.
There is also a liver disease called Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) in which a person has fatty liver even with little or no alcohol consumption. What is alarming with NAFLD is that its symptoms usually have no physical manifestation. In cases with such, signs include fatigue, pain in the upper right abdomen, and enlarged stomach.
Taking care of your liver and checking if it is fully functioning is your responsibility. Remember that the liver gives your body the energy for its day-to-day needs. It regulates and processes anything you eat and drink.
So what do you do to take care of your liver?
Aside from eating and drinking well, you can also take blood tests used to help diagnose and monitor liver disease or damage. The tests measure the levels of certain enzymes and proteins in your blood.
Foods like berries, oatmeal and garlic and drinks like coffee and green tea are good for your liver.
Taking medicine also helps improve liver function. (Phospholipids) Essentiale® Forte P contains purified EPL® (Essential Phospholipids) which is extracted from natural food with precise technology from Germany. It can be easily absorbed by liver cells. Essentiale, an over-the-counter medicine, is clinically proven to strengthen liver health by promoting the repairing function and regeneration of liver cells,.
Don’t take your liver for granted. Be mindful of what you eat and drink. Your “Silent Hero” will thank you.
Yipeee! Althea just launched another collection under the Althea product line, some new addition to the Althea exclusives. Wanna know all of them? I’m so excited to share everything with you the Althea’s A’bloom Collection. Being one of the first few who tried the products before it came out on the Althea Korea website , i’m telling you, the said collection is something that you should consider adding to your skin care and beauty routine. Plus, the said collection will not break the bank. That’s for sure.
This collection is consist of the following:
A’bloom BHA Blackhead Blaster
A’bloom Moisturizing Watermelon Mask Sheets
A’bloom Nourishing Avocado Mask Sheet
A’bloom Brightening Lemon Lime Mask Sheet
A’bloom Anti-Blemish Peach Mask Sheet
A’bloom Giant Meringue Puff
A’bloom Baby Meringue Puffs
First that I tried… the A’bloom Meringue Puffs. OMG! they are so cute like marshmallows!
A’bloom Meringue Puffs comes in two variants. The A’bloom Giant Meringue Puff(which I called mama puff) and A’bloom Baby Meringue Puffs. A’bloom Meringue puffs were made of high density LATEX-FREE foam. So for those with latex alleries, these products are totally safe for you.
If you want a much more even and wider area coverage, the A’bloom Giant Meringue Puff is the one you should use since it can expand up to 1.5x in size(48*46mm). It is also a multi-angle puff where you can use the narrow part on eyes, nose, lips and other curved parts of face while the wide part can be used to cover wide areas of the face.
It’s true! this meringue puff really does expand! Amazing! and another cool thing is that i goes back to its original size when it is already dry.
When wet, it will give you a glossy and moisturizing finish. Use it dry for a matte finish look. PRICE: Php100
Yes! it is that small. Just look at its size compared to my hand.
When I opened my Althea Angel box and saw these cutie A’bloom Baby Meringue Puffs, I was like “awww… they are sooooo cute!.” Each puffs are 30*28mm in size and can be used on small areas or even wider area(but it will take a while sice it is smaller than usual puffs).
If I’m always out and to go, I would prefer using this the A’bloom Baby Meringue Puffs, because I could just sneak it in my purse and will find it very useful for a quick touch-up.

Clean your puffs. How? Soak it in running water and wash it with cleansing foam(I used my facial wash for my puffs), then squeeze it until no bubbles and water. Let it dry.
Do not squeeze the puffs too hard. You don’t want to scratch, chap or rip it off right?
Please replace your puffs every 1-3 months of use.
And so after wearing makeup all day, it’s time for some facial cleansing and pampering. Let me start with the A’bloom BHA Blackhead Blaster.
Blackheads are one of the facial issues that I’m dealing almost everyday. Since I have big pores, sadly, i’m more prone to it even whiteheads. Glad to know that Althea came up with something like this. I know there are a lot of anti-blackheads/whiteheads treatments or products available in the market, but I would love to give this BHA Blackhead Blaster a try.

Any product that uses natural ingredients is a go for me. This blackhead blaster from Althea is packed with natural extracts from Tea Tree Leaf Oil, Apricot seed, White Willow and it has charcoal as well( which is why the product itself looks black). All of these known for amazing benefits on skin.
A’bloom BHA Blackhead Blaster is so easy to use. Just rub it on a circular motion- on nose, chin or any area on your face with whiteheads/blackheads. While rubbing it on my skin, I felt some micro scrubs which i like because it can help in exfoliating my skin. And then I wash it off with water. Just that- it’s not a complicated product to use.
It may not be that visible in the photos above, but the areas where I applied the BHA Blackhead Blaster, became clearer, smoother and refreshed. I love it. There were still some blackheads and whiteheads left, but it’s understandable.
“BLACKHEAD OUT WITHOUT THE OUCH” , yes this is so true. Since there’s no squeezing or too much rubbing needed, you’ll find using this product gentle on skin. And oh, this is just for the price of P200.
Purchase A’bloom Meringue Puff (Giant or Baby) or the BHA Blackhead Blaster to get a FREE limited edition A’bloom mobile phone grip! Just add to cart! One gift per customer per order, while stock lasts. Not valid with any other promotions, discounts and free shipping. • Althea general T&C applies.
After some cleansing, exfoliating and removal of blackhead-whiteheads, it’s time for another A’bloom product to try. The A’bloom Fruit Mask Sheets.
It has 4 cool variants available:
WATER-ME-LONG Moisturizing Watermelon Mask Sheet-Contains Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Fruit Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract which ydrates and moisturizes skin. BEST FOR: All Skin Types (great for Combination Skin)

Inventory tracking costs time and money—a major stress for all businesses. Having too much or not enough inventory in stock can result in lost profits. You should know what is on your shelves at any point in the day and what is needed for tomorrow. Stock management is a powerful tool to grow your company and accuracy is a major component of your business analytics.
Mobile POS systems are becoming common in retail and restaurant. Consumers hate waiting in line, and the mobility aspect reduces this problem. The mobile Clover Flex device offers you “flexibility” whether you’re checking out customers waiting in-line, table-side at a restaurant, or even at the counter of your store. It’s portable size and can let you take orders, process a transaction, print receipt, get the customer’s signature, and even adjust a tip right on the spot.
POS systems come with many features that are beneficial to your business. The key is to analyze your business’s needs and prioritize the features that are most important to you before choosing a system.
10 Years of giving chances, choices, and saving lives. Wow! I can’t imagine how many lives has been changed with a single decision of saving their child’s cord blood. And with the growing list of stem cell treatable diseases, the cord blood stem cell discoveries and advancements are nothing short of miraculous.
If you haven’t heard, Cordlife is amongst the leading players for private cord blood banking services in Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, India, Indonesia, China, Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam and the Philippines.
Their cord blood banking service was first introduced to the Philippine market in April 2009, and was headquartered in Antel Corporate Centre in Ortigas.
Their cord blood processing and storage facility in UP AyalaLand Technohub in Quezon City was established in 2010. It has a storage capacity for 30,000 cord blood and cord lining units and is built in accordance to global gold standards to give local families peace of mind.
It is the first and only stem cell bank to be registered with DOH and to be certified by ISO in the country since 2012. Cordlife is also the first in the Philippines to earn the prestigious AABB Accreditation in 2017.
It All Began with a Chance and a Choice
Cordlife_Brand Ambassadors Celebrity brand ambassadors join in the celebration of Cordlife Philippines’ anniversary. Patrick Garcia, Chito Miranda with wife Neri Miranda and son Miggy Miranda, Miriam Quiambao-Roberto and husband Ardy Roberto, Vanessa Matsunaga-Sunga with daughter Isabela and husband Jun Sunga, Jolina Magdangal-Escueta with husband Mark and children Pele and Vika, Juris Fernandez-Lim and husband Gavin Lim, Samantha Godinez-Valenciano and daughter Leia. Plus the newest addition to the growing family of Cordlife… Pauleen Luna-Soto.
This year, Cordlife Philippines has reached a significant milestone of 10 years in the consumer healthcare industry. But the greatest breakthrough in their journey began with a decision they made a decade ago. A chance they took and a choice they made back then that proved to be right.
A Decade of Quality Cord Blood Banking and Beyond
During the past 10 years, Cordlife Philippines has built a tradition of delivering the highest of quality standards in service and product offerings to every Filipino family. From less than ten, their team of highly talented and dedicated workforce grew to almost a hundred nationwide.
To provide families with more treatment options in the future, they launched their cord lining banking service in 2013. And to ensure that their clients’ health is well taken care of in the most holistic way possible, they introduced the following services:
Cordlife Care360° Safeguard Program
Cordlife Shield, Cordblood Network
Cordlife Transplant Care
The first set of families who invested on the health and future of their families by banking their children’s cord blood with Cordlife Philippines.
Now, more and more families are gaining access to cord blood and cord lining banking as the company extends their services in Visayas and Mindanao with the opening of their Cebu and Davao satellite offices.
Their prolific years of experience in umbilical cord blood banking pushed them further to offer more quality services. Hence, the introduction of their umbrella brand, Genscreen®. With Genscreen®, they launched genetic screening services such as: NICE and Prevue Non-Invasive Prenatal Tests and PlumCare DNA Advisor, the first and only family genetic testing in the Philippines.
More than just a Cord Blood Bank
With the power of cord blood stem cells in their care, Cordlife Philippines values great responsibility to their community as well. That is why in 2017, they pioneered a national advocacy called One Blood. The CSR program grants free cord blood banking to qualified pregnant moms with family history of diseases that can be treated by cord blood stem cells.
In celebrating the first ever World Cord Blood Day in the country, Cordlife Philippines joined hand-in-hand with healthcare professionals, celebrity brand ambassadors, and Cordlife moms to spread awareness about cord blood and cord blood banking through informative talks and lectures.
And as a gesture of gratitude to their clients, Cordlife introduced their Privilege Card that offers discounts and promos from their trusted partner brands.
With a firm belief that their services may offer life-changing and life-saving therapeutic options for families in the future, their commitment to continuously offer quality services will never be compromised.
Because after all, Cordlife is really all about celebrating the gift of life!
Making memories when you are in a beautiful place and taking photos to capture amazing locations are some of the few things that you do when you are in a vacation. It would be such a waste if these kind of moments were not properly photographed.
Mobile photography is no longer limited to food shots and selfies. These days, even professional photographers rely heavily on their smartphones when capturing images that evoke a lot of emotions. A photo is a great way to communicate a message or even just to update loved ones of a recent trip.
No DSLR? no problem! You can now take professional-grade photos without breaking the bank… and just by using a smartphone. Would you believe that?
The Vivo V15 Pro’s 48MP Triple Rear Camera addresses photography issues such as exposure, lowlight conditions, and sharpness, among others. The camera’s AI (artificial intelligence) component elevates mobile photography experience to the next level with its 12MP standard + 8MP super wide-angle + 5MP depth-sensing camera setup.
With its 48 Million Quad Pixel Sensor, the Vivo V15 Pro offers photography enthusiasts more than just stunning photos. It is almost certain that the photograph will have a crispier and more natural-looking image compared to those taken with lower megapixels.
In travel photography, landscape photos are a must. No portfolio is complete without a shot of the horizon or breathtaking flower fields. Mobile photographers can rely on Vivo V15 Pro’s 8MP AI Super Wide-Angle Camera to do the job. Users don’t have to change lenses depending on the need of the shot. Just press on the feature and it’s ready to immortalize an image. The AI Super Wide-Angle Camera can expand up to 120 degrees, capturing more people and fuller landscape shots.
The 5MP Depth Depth-Sensing Camera will add more drama and effects on the captured image.
To deliver high-quality 12MP images, the Vivo V15 Pro’s main rear camera has a 4-in-1 pixel technology. It means that one large pixel is combined with four pixels so that even in low light or even dark conditions, the images will still come out better.
With its Professional Mode feature, the Vivo V15 Pro can pretty much do the work of DSLR cameras.
Users who want to learn photography can practice by enabling the smartphone’s Pro Mode capabilities. Adjust the aperture when taking a photo in dark or confined spaces such as hotels or function rooms. Test how the shutter speed works by adjusting it when taking a photograph of a race or moving vehicles. One can also play with the Manual Feature when taking photos of a city skyline — at night.
However, there is Vivo V15 Pro’s AI Super Night Mode that can take multiple photos at different exposures. The finished product is a stunning combination of these shots. Night scenes are difficult to shoot, but through this feature, anyone can achieve a clear and beautiful night scene.
This enables images taken with the Vivo V15 Pro to be used in other platforms and not only for social media posts.
Still, for Instagrammers who like sharing their photographs to family and friends and feel limited by the available editing features, the Vivo V15 Pro’s Editing Features can help them achieve just the right amount of brightness, contrast, or even saturation in their images.
GET YOURS NOW!
The Vivo V15 Pro is now available in stores nationwide! Plus, how’s this for a good offer? Vivo is offering their latest flagship phone at 0% interest, thru 6-9 months installment payments using major credit cards and Home Credit, at all participating stores nationwide.
UTI or Urinary Tract Infection can occur for a variety of reasons. However, when most people think about the said condition, they assume the most common reason is either eating salty food or if they are sexually active…sexual intercourse.
UTI after sex occurs often, but there are plenty of ways to avoid them if you know what actions to take before and after. With the right prevention, you may not need any UTI medicine for a while.

1. Urinate Before Sex
You can prevent UTIs by urinating before sex. A lot of women get the advice they should urinate after sex to push out bacteria. While that is a good step, too, you should also relieve yourself before sex if you can. This step is essential for getting bacteria out of the vaginal opening before sexual intercourse occurs.

2. Remain Hydrated Throughout the Day
Whether or not you are sexually active, you should drink plenty of water throughout the day. You should carry a water bottle with you at all times, so you can drink up on it regularly. It is the simplest way to prevent urinary tract infections.
Frequent urinating removes bacteria and prevents it from staying too long inside your urinary tract.

3. Clean Up Afterward
You do not have to jump out from the bed the moment you finish. However, you should go to the bathroom soon after to wash up. It is recommended for couples to shower after sex. It can even be a good idea to shower before sex. You do not have to use soap on your genitals because anything with heavy perfumes can exacerbate the problem.
Many people get UTIs at one point in their lifetimes. If it ever happens to you, then you do not have to worry. There are some easy steps you can take to make it go away promptly.
Contact a company specializing in UTI medicine to see what you can do to find relief or better yet, consult a doctor if you are suspecting that you have UTI.
Having pets in the house is like having your very own kids. You feed them, bathe them, bring them to the doctor(vet) when they are sick or just to check if they are in healthy condition, and you train them. When a dog or a cat did good, you give them reward of either affection or treats. Thank God my dogs wants affection most of the time(but I do buy them treats from time to time).
As for my cat, Catniss, he seldom likes cat treats. He’s really very choosy and picky with his food and treats. Even on expensive treats, he will not touch it. Actually, I find it hard to look for treats that he will like, always on the trial and error stage.
But now, FINALLY!, I already found a cat treat for him! what is it? it’s TEMPTATIONS! Watch the video above. See? He is not usually like that when I give him treats. He’s like eating those treats as if it’s his main meal hahahah!
Now buying treats for my cat is just a few clicks away because TEMPTATIONS cat treats are now exclusively available in Shopee.
“We are very excited to be partnering Mars Petcare, a global name known for pet care products that are household names around the world, for the launch of their new cat treat brand, Temptations. We are excited to be partnering with one of the world’s leaders in pet care so that we can better cater to the needs of all Filipinos, especially cat lovers. We look forward to more collaborations with Mars Petcare that will benefit not just cat owners and pet owners but also the animals they love,” said Ruoshan Tao, Head of Marketing, Shopee Philippines
TEMPTATIONS is under the product line of Mars Petcare, a global name known for quality pet care products such as Pedigree and Whiskas
TEMPTATIONS is available in three irresistible flavors with exclusive discounts on Shopee:
TEMPTATIONS Tasty Chicken Flavour 85gm

“We see Temptations as the perfect fit for cat owners. We believe that the treats spark fun and entertaining moments between cats and their owners. We are happy to give those moments to cat owners more conveniently thanks to our partnership with Shopee. We know we have found a good partner in Shopee for providing Filipinos quality pet care and pet nutrition products,” said Phua Fui Ching, Mars Petcare Southeast Asia Pet Nutrition D-Commerce Director

It also gives the laptop a sleek and modern aesthetic. Weighing just 2.4 pounds (1.1 kg) and measuring only 0.6 inches (16.6 mm), it’s easy to take on the road. With up to 20 hours1 of battery life, professionals can stay productive on transcontinental flights or work through two full days on the go without having to recharge. This high-performance notebook can also be charged up to 50 percent in less than 45 minutes.
Powerful, the new Windows 10 Pro notebooks are packed with up to 8th Gen Intel® Core i7 processors, up to 24GB DDR4 memory, up to NVIDIA® GeForce® MX250 graphics, and up to 1TB of responsive Gen 3 x4 PCIe SSD using NVMe technology for speeding through editing large spreadsheets, and creating presentations.
