Growrich Virgin Coconut Oil Capsule
Did you know that according to a study conducted by the Philippine government, VCO is one of the best bets to help improve against symptoms of COVID-19? Its abundance in our country is a plus, so if you aren't consuming it yet, we've got more news to convince you to take it! The concern most of the time is, that it's quite difficult to ingest for some people. Taking a spoonful of it may seem too overwhelming to the taste, making people iffy about adding it to their routine.
The solution? Growrich Virgin Coconut Oil capsules—the first capsule form VCO approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the country! No more gag reflex here: take your much-needed VCO supplement in this form and you're good to go.

Every capsule contains saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, and essential fatty acids that are heart-friendly and offer many more health benefits worth checking out. Available at Mercury Drug, Watsons, Southstar Drug, and Shopee.
Eating better to prevent burnout
Feeling a little more stressed than usual? You could be experiencing burnout, or 'crisis fatigue', an experience brought about by being in a pandemic for extended periods of time. It's no surprise that people are taking on more responsibility than usual, and yes, more people are suffering from these on-going circumstances. How then do we fight back against constantly being stressed out, anxious, and burnt out? According to Dr. Rolando Balburias, a General Internal Medicine and IFM Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, “It’s not just the hormones that are responsible for making us feel burnt out. What we eat also plays an important role because the lack of micronutrients, enzymes, and antioxidants in our body can cause energy deficiency - making us feel fatigued and stressed easily.”
Yup—our eating habits have a lot to do with it. And because of this knowledge, Dr. Balburias recommends the following guidelines: choose carbs wisely by avoiding sweets and white bread to avoid carb crashes; eat foods that fight inflammation (i.e. eating the rainbow and plant-based foods or fish with Omega-3s); stay hydrated with water all day; and learn how to use protein efficiently by spacing it out over the day's meals instead of just one sitting. Going plant-based and need protein? Choose whole grains, beans and legumes, and nuts.
