Are you still confused with which fiber is the best for a balanced diet? Well, you don’t have to be! All the fiber you need is already found in just one plant: Psyllium.
Psyllium provides a great amount of soluble fiber, the fiber that is mainly responsible for promoting a healthy digestive system. Once Psyllium comes into contact with water in the intestine, it expands and transforms into a highly absorbent gel-like substance that absorbs toxins. Dr. Ardith Tan, Assistant Professor of the Department of Medicine in De La Salle Health Sciences Institute, and consultant cardiologist at De La Salle University Medical Center, states, “Once the fiber is inside the intestine, it acts as like a sponge and absorbs bad cholesterol, fats and waste material. Afterwards, these toxins, which may be the cause of several diseases, are flushed out even before it enters the blood stream.”
Last July 27, 2011 Johnson’s family introduced their newest endorser and she’s none other than the young super star and celebrity Mom, Judy Ann Santos- Agoncillo (with her two children- Yohan and Lucho). She was very jolly and excited while talking about the product that she has been using even before the offer to endorse it came. She shared stories on how they bond as a family and what their special moments are.
Judy Ann attests to how Johnson’s Baby Milk Bath is now 100% MORE milk, more protein and more skin moisturizer. She says her entire family uses it since most of them have sensitive skin and Johnson’s Baby Milk does not give them any allergies. When asked about what she liked most about the product, Judy Ann quips, “It’s 100% hypoallergenic and it leaves your skin smooth and smelling nice after taking a bath”.
Mommy bloggers like myself were also present during the launch and we were all starstruck by Judy Ann who was really all game in answering Mommy questions thrown at her.
How about you, have you tried Johnson’s Baby Milk Bath? What was your experience?

The world’s largest health club, Fitness First, true to its “Real People, Real Results” motto, partnered with ABS-CBN to support its hit reality program The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition whose contenders are seeking to change their lives through improved health and fitness.
To this end, Fitness First set up a satellite gym, with its world-class standard equipment, within The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition camp for the contestants, who have been following a rigorous training and nutrition plan to achieve their life-transforming weight-loss goals.
Broadcast company GMA Network, Inc. (GMA) supports veteran mountain climber Romi Garduce in his quest to be the First Pinoy to have scaled and summited the seven highest mountains in seven continents.
GMA’s “Seven Summits Expedition of 2011” will capture Garduce as he climbs the last 2 mountains before attaining the prestigious 7 summits record in Mountaineering. To date, he has successfully summited six of the famous seven peaks — Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa (2002); Mt. Aconcagua in South America (2005); Mt. Everest in the Asian continent (2006); Mt. Elbrus in Europe (2007); the Denali Peak in North America (2008); and Mt. Kosciuszko in Australia (December 2008).
This July, Garduce furthers his quest by climbing the 16,023-foot Carstenz Pyramid inIndonesia. Carstenz, the tallest mountain in the Australasia/Oceanea geographical region is considered a more challenging climb by seasoned mountaineers and is the alternative to Mt.Kosciuszko in Australia. By climbing both peaks, Garduce joins an elite group of mountaineers to achieve this feat and is prime to complete his Seven Summits campaign inAntarctica later this year.
Philippine television’s pioneering public service program, Kapwa Ko, Mahal Ko (KKMK), which debuted December 1975 on GMA Network, Inc. (GMA), continues its socio-civic activities with a larger audience this 2011.
The show, airing Saturdays from 530 to 6am over GMA-7, undertook a series of medical mission activities on- and off-air to render primary health care services to indigent Filipino communities.
For the first semester 2011, KKMK created the most impact through facilitating Ventriculo-Peritoneal (VP) Shunting surgery to three hydrocephalus-stricken child-patients. VP Shunt implants a tube in the skull of the patient to empty excess fluid in the brain.
Okay honestly, I didn’t know 30 seconds to mars until my SIL mentioned that they’re coming to Manila. I did some research and here’s what I found:
Formed in 1998 by frontman Jared Leto and his older brother, 30 Seconds to Mars found success in the 2000s with a mix of post-grunge, screamo, and hard rock. The band gained a modest audience with its debut album, but it was the platinum-selling sophomore effort A Beautiful Lie that officially opened the flood gates in 2005, securing the band a frequent presence on MTV while paving the way for a number of successful tours. By placing all-access passes into 12 copies of the album, the bandmates also showed a savvy appreciation for marketing, which they revisited several years later by putting fans’ photographs on the cover of their third album, This Is War.
Have you heard of the latest happening at Eastwood? Mobsters who called themselves the Legion of Pain took the mall goers by surprise and mocked everyone because at some point they’ve been victims of the Legion of Pain. But there’s a team who can beat them..who? Watch this cool video about the pain monsters who invaded Eastwood:
So funny when the boastful tablet man came and claimed he can beat the Legion of pain but couldn’t. The real heroes were the Advil Liquid Force who used Advil liquid gel to beat the Legion of Pain in no time.
