Is Your Vitamin C Safe?

After the storm that recently brought heavy damage to properties and challenged the health of Cagayan De Oro residents, our kababayan’s  immune system is just starting to recuperate and get back to normal. One sure way to speed up its recovery is to take optimum levels of Vitamin C.

But did you know, that when taking Vitamin C, we have to be careful of several factors such as the type and quality of Vitamin C because not all vitamin C are the same!

Looking Forward to the Philippine Homeschool Conference 2016

Family Travel 02

As we travel, there are several must-haves we should prepare to make sure to make our travel smooth and worry-free. Aside from preparing tickets (if you plan to travel via plane, boat or bus), we need to prepare some specific things especially if we travel with kids.

Here is my must-have list whenever I travel with my kids:

1. Jacket. I always let my kids bring their jackets. I don’t want them to feel cold whenever there is a sudden change of weather.

2. Medicines. I always bring medicines from my trusted brand, Unliab. Having kids with motion sickness, I always prepare a couple of Dizitab. I also bring a couple of Biogesic for headache and Diatabs for diarrhea. I also bring with me liniments just in … READ MORE
