The heart represents a lot of beautiful things - affection, love, and even life.

Hygiene is something taught to us from when we were kids. Adults tell us to give attention to how clean our body should be. Nothing’s wrong with this concept, but there is something we always forget to teach. That is to be clean not just on the outside but also on the inside. This is where colon cleansing enters.



Colon cleansing is important as it detoxifies the body from harmful toxins that can cause different diseases in the body. But how can we cleanse our colon? ATC Healthcare, your trusted life ally gives you a solution for that– FatOut.

FatOut has the revolutionary Sweep and Shred Formula which helps in cleansing your colon and trimming down your fat.  Psyllium Husk sweeps and cleanses toxins in your colon while Green Tea Extract shreds and burns your fat. Other ingredients include Pu’er Tea Extract which eliminates hard-to-digest fat, Aloe Vera Powder which help detoxifies the colon, Alfalfa which nourishes the digestive system and Oat Fiber which suppresses the appetite. The combination of these ingredients can help you lose the pounds without putting your health at risk. Note that, FatOut is not a medicinal drug and is not used to treat the symptoms of any disease.



FatOut should be taken daily, before every meal, preferably with a warm glass of water. FatOut is available at Mercury Drug and leading drugstores nationwide for SRP P125.00 per piece. Stand out with FatOut!
Life could be unfair, there are people who are privileged that had a head start in life, but one thing is for sure, there’s no defined formula for one person’s success. Though it might be true in some points, success in life might have come easy for them. In life, you don’t have to start out being the best; you just have to start. You have to evaluate what you really want to do, and what’s in your heart. Love it and do it passionately.



Being productive can develop so many aspects of your life but in order to do so, you have to keep your body and mind healthy. To sustain that hunger for productivity, we have to make sure our heart is pumping all the blood our body needs. ATC Coenzyme Q10 is great for the heart as it helps improve its ability to pump more blood. It also lowers the viscosity of the blood, making it easier for the heart to function properly.

However, ATC Coenzyme Q10 is not a medicinal drug and should not be used to treat the symptoms of any disease. ATC Coenzyme Q10 is made possible by ATC Healthcare International, your life ally! 

ATC Coenzyme Q10 is sold at SRP P 18.00 per soft gel.  ATC Coenzyme Q10 is available at Mercury Drugs and all leading drugstores nationwide.
According to statistics, 382 million people have diabetes worldwide in 2013. In 2014, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) estimated that diabetes resulted in 4.9 million deaths and the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that diabetes resulted in 1.5 million deaths in 2012, making it the 8th leading cause of death.

In the Philippines, 6.16 million Filipinos is seen to have diabetes by 2030. This is because of our unhealthy lifestyle nowadays. People are not just aware of it but our simple yet frequent indulgence for food and vices may  lead us to diabetes. Eating carbohydrate-rich foods, merciless eating of desserts, and uncontrolled intake of alcoholic drinks and smoking can contribute to diabetes. 


So how can we avoid diabetes? 

Simply avoid all those listed above and incorporate everything that promotes healthy lifestyle. 



ATC Healthcare International Corp. searched for the best vegetables extracts out there to help regulate blood sugar, and fit them into one convenient capsule - BitterGO. 

BitterGO is an all-natural food supplement that helps in preventing diabetes as it contains four healthy ingredients that are beneficial in managing the blood sugar level in the body. One of BitterGo’s contents is ampalaya, known worldwide for its anti-diabetic properties and is recognized by the Department of Health (DOH) as a medicinal herb. Other components of BitterGO are medicinal herbs like banaba (contains an insulin like called Corrosolic acid, which lowers the glucose in the body), luyang dilaw (normalizes blood compostion and reduces the level of bad cholesterol), and garlic, which is present only in BitterGO. Garlic produces Allicin which is known to lower insulin and tryglyceride levels in the body. 


Note that, BitterGo is not a medicinal drug and should not be used to treat the symptoms of any disease.

It’s a big part of our culture to have unhealthy vices like smoking, drinking alcohol, eating fatty foods, and living rather sedentary lives. These vices are often considered as stress relievers – a product of our fast and busy lives. We are so busy that we fail to notice what these do to our bodies. Also, these lifestyle choices affect our families and the time left we have to spend with them. If we continue to live so busily and unhealthily, we could end up shortening the time we have with our loved ones. With all of this in mind, ATC Healthcare International Corp. aims to support everyone in turning towards a healthier lifestyle and have a better quality of life.

ATC Healthcare International Corp. provides an array of food supplements for almost all kinds of common diseases. LiverMarin, Robust, Robust Extreme, FatOut, and Vita-E are just some of their products that are approved and deemed safe by the FDA. Consumers can be complacent that these supplements are safe and good for the health, especially since most of ATC’s products are made from natural ingredients.



Moreover, ATC Healthcare International Corp. was awarded the Gold Brand, Gold Seal of Quality, and the Consumers’ Choice Award for being a trustworthy healthcare provider. ATC Healthcare products are available in Mercury Drug and other leading drugstores nationwide. ATC Healthcare, your trusted life ally!

“Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It’s for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough…”



We’ve come across many OFW stories one way or another. Still among us are those who have romantic notions of the kind of lives they have abroad. People could not see past the pasalubongs and the happy photos OFWs post online, which is worrisome because in reality not all OFWs live the good life abroad. But they would not talk about it. Some would not share their every day situations abroad and would rarely admit that they get lonely. 

Their reason is understandable. They naturally display strength because most of the time, they are all their families have. They expect themselves to be the strong-willed ones because they have to in order to provide their family the best life. Their hopes and dreams are for those they left behind. They are, in fact, the prime epitome of a caregiver. 

But even carers need caring. And honestly, they are the ones who need it most. 

What we know is this: The reason why Skype and Messenger are one of the most used apps by OFWs is because these somehow make them feel like they never left. It is their temporary remedy for longing and missing out. Still, it falls short in making them feel the care and love from home–– especially at a time like Christmas. 

And we thought, if Home would make their Christmas, yet they could not come home for it, let us send home to them. So in the spirit of giving, Biogesic wanted to move families to care for their ultimate providers, the givers of care who are thousands of kilometers away. And we did this through the very first Biogesic Banig-bayan program. 

Inspired by the balik-bayan box, Biogesic created a special package for families here to carry items they would want to send. It could hold anything from items they miss from home to symbols of life events OFWs would wish they were a part of––truly pieces of home that would make their Christmas whole. 

The Banig-bayan carries the message that Ingat and care would still be felt even if they are apart. Biogesic inspired families to make their OFWs feel they are loved, remembered, and missed. And by the deep expressions of gratitude, heart-tugging stories, and tears of joy, the Banig-bayans would make all the difference for their Christmas to be truly merry and immensely felt.

Here's a video to inspire every family who has loved-ones abroad. 


This Christmas, let's surprise them with the gift of care by joining the Banig Bayan Project. Share your stories and stand the chance to send them tokens of gratitude. Like Biogesic’s Fan Page on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/biogesic), watch and share Biogesic’s “Kakaibang Pasko mula sa Biogesic” video on social pages, visit www.banigbayan.com for details.
Nothing describes Gary Valenciano quite like his moniker “Mr. Pure Energy,” He is the very image of youthful vibrance, whether onstage or not. That’s why it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he values the way he looks the same way that he values the core of who he is: a prayerful, faithful husband, dependable father,
and an outstanding entertainer.  

​Part of what makes Gary stay young looking is his head of hair. What many people don’t know is that, like all other men his age, Gary once worried about hair thinning and hair loss. That’s why, at the first signs of the problem, Gary sought to find ways to prevent it from becoming worse.   

​“I first noticed the hair loss in the shower, after I toweled my hair dry. Then one day, my team of hairstylists noticed that my hair was thinning, too. That’s when they told me to look for the product that Fanny Serrano was using, a product called NOVUHAIR,” remarked Gary on his journey to regaining control over his hair loss.



​NOVUHAIR is a topical scalp lotion that is a unique combination of 14 different natural ingredients and essential oils for a healthier hair and scalp. One of the factors of hair loss, according to studies, is stress, something that Gary experiences on almost a daily basis. Other factors include hereditary disorders, a 
persistent illness, major surgery, hormonal problems, childbirth & delivery, medications, infections, pollutants, and even excessive exposure to sunlight. And contrary to popular belief, hair loss is as much a problem for women as it is for men. In many cases, hair loss may be prevented or alleviated through early detection. In the case of Gary, his decision to try NOVUHAIR to prevent his symptoms from worsening made a big difference, and within a few months, he saw remarkable results.​

​Gary shares his experience with NOVUHAIR as he tells the story of their family hair history: “Hair loss runs in our family, too, even if it sometimes skips a generation. My brother and grandfather both lost their hair, but my dad still has a full head of hair at 87. I just wanted to make sure I take control of my symptoms. 

Now, I use NOVUHAIR everyday, and I’ve noticed that I don’t shed as much hair as I did before, especially after toweling my hair dry. And my hairstylists noticed it, too. I love using NOVUHAIR because it has this minty, cool effect that makes me feel like my hair is always clean and fresh.” 

​“In less than a month and half, I already saw results even if I was told to wait three to four months before I can see a difference. The effects on me were much faster. There were fewer strands on my white towel, which basically was within the normal boundaries of hair loss for an average person. Before using 

NOVUHAIR, I used to shed more.” This is due to the fact that NOVUHAIR penetrates deep to help rejuvenate, nourish, & maintain moisture in the scalp and hair. By improving the blood circulation in the scalp, NOVUHAIR helps stimulate hair growth and aid in preventing further, excessive hair fall, while also improving the overall appearance of the hair. 

​“I never endorse a product that I did not experience first. I have to make sure it is really effective. With Novuhair, I can say that it has really contributed to my peace of mind and overall well-being. And, heads up, as Novuhair is now part of my daily routine, which includes prayer, diet, and medication. God has truly lived 
up to his promise in my life, and as he says in Psalm 92:14 ‘I will keep you fruitful even in old age. Fresh and green.’ I am very happy now that Novuhair is a part of that.”

NOVUHAIR, Nature’s Answer to Hair Loss is available in all Mercury Drug outlets, Watsons, Rose Pharmacy, South Star Drug & Manson Drug, Metro Gaisano Pharmacy, The Landmark (Makati & TriNoma), J Centre Mall (Cebu), KCC Malls (Gen. Santos City & Koronadal City), NCCC Malls (Palawan & Davao), Gaisano Malls (Davao & Gen. Santos City) and online at www.regaloservice.com and www.lazada.com.ph.

When you look in the mirror and see your first strands of grey hair, do you feel disheartened? Exasperated even?

The greying of hair, after all, is a sign of aging-- and you like most people want to look youthful.

Looking and being old – though it has some advantages (e.g., people would think you are wiser) – is, more often than not, associated with frailty and bodily deterioration. Being frail is something you are not – and would not want to be perceived as – when you are in your mid 30’s, which is the average age when hair starts to turn grey.

Aging is a natural process that cannot be reversed or stopped. Until recently, the only way to deal with unwanted grey hair is to cover it by using hair dye or by shaving it.

What causes grey hair?

The pigment that gives color to human skin, eyes and hair is called melanin.

As we grow old, the build-up of hydrogen peroxide in our hair follicles causes oxidative stress. This inhibits the production of melanin by the color-producing cells called melanocytes. Without melanin, there is absence of color. Thus, our hair stands turn grey.

The time when our hair turns grey is dictated by our genetics and other hereditary factors. Greying of hair can also be caused by stress, smoking, virtiligo, thyroid disease, lack of proper diet, and Vitamin B12 deficiency. It can also be caused by medications or treatments like chemotherapy.

Is there a  way  to stop the greying of hair?
Yes, there is now a way to stop the greying of hair and bring back its natural color.

Dermpharma Inc, the company behind the phenomenal Minoxidil Regroe Hair Regrowth Treatment, recently launched  another breakthrough product aptly called  GREY AWAY.  This product stops the greying of hair and brings back the natural color of hair by stimulating the production of melanin, the pigment that gives hair its color.



Grey Away Anti-Grey Hair Treatment is a scientific breakthrough in hair color restoration. It contains Melitane®, a biomimetic polypeptide that stimulates melanin production; and EMortal Pep™, a 4-amino acid polypeptide that promotes hair growth.

After spraying, Grey Away penetrates deep down into the hair roots and induces the maturity and activity of melanocytes at the hair bulge stem cell region. The matured melanocytes migrate to the hair bulb and induce the synthesis of melanin.

The melanin is exported to the keratinocytes, which starts the pigmentation of the hair follicle from its root--restoring the natural color of your hair.

How do you use Grey Away?

Grey Away is easy to use.  Just follow these steps:

1. Clean your hair by either taking a shower or rubbing your scalp with a cotton ball soaked in scalp cleanser or
 Alcohol.
2. Dry you hair thoroughly.
3. Part your hair and spray Grey Away directly to your scalp.
4. Massage your scalp gently and let it dry.
5. Repeat the process twice daily, preferably one in the morning and one at night.

By following these steps meticulously and strictly, you will see your grey hair turn  to its natural color in less than 2 months.  Continuous use of Grey Away is essential to keep grey hair away and keep  the natural color of your hair.

Grey Away Anti-Grey Hair Treatment is available in  leading drugstores and department stores.

With Grey Away Anti-Grey Hair Treatment, the greying of hair is a thing of the past.

People will still be second-guessing about your age, but it is now something to smile about. Start looking young even when you are past 50.

Say your goodbyes  “Grey hair, go away!”

Gaku Nakamura is a self-styled Japanese Ramen Consultant living in Manila. Last year, he listed his top 10 ramen with Ramen Nagi topping the list. But with a number of new and authentic restaurants popping up, here is some of Gaku-san’s top ramen for 2015!

#5 Mendokoro Ramenba



MUST TRY: Shoyu Tonkatsu

Gaku says: “Mendokoro has tonkotsu-based ramen with chashu. The restaurant looks 
just like a Japanese-style kitchen and it reminds me of a good ramen restaurant in Japan, Afuri. The taste of the broth and chasu is very nice.”


#4 Mitsuyado Seimen


MUST TRY: Cheese Tsukemen

Gaku says: “Tsukemen soup is yuzu flavor and the noodles are thick. I have never thought that cheese can fit wih Tsukemen, but you will be satisfied once you taste it at Mitsuyado!

#3 Ramen Daisho



MUST TRY: Miso Ramen

Gaku says: “The best Miso ramen in Manila! It is located along Shaw Blvd. Although not located in a major mall, lots of people go there just to eat Daisho's delicious ramen. Not only ramen, but their gyoza are also delicious.”


#2 Ramen Nagi


MUST TRY: Butao Ramen

Gaku says: “Nagi’s tonkotsu-based broth tastes like real Japanese tonkotsu. If you’re a 
first-time visitor, try Butao. When you've eaten half of it, try to add their Fire sauce to 
change the taste. You can also change the firmness of the ramen and the toppings based on your preference.”

Manila, Philippines – “Little Lights” is a story about being born with a lack of light. More importantly, it shows what happens when we, as individuals and as a community, discover what it means to be empowered by our differences and similarities.

 A physically weak but strong-minded firefly named Charlie is forced to face his fears. Charlie struggles, not only to overcome his fear of darkness, but also to find his place in his discord-riddled firefly community. But, in spite of his own weaknesses and the indifference of his fellow fireflies, Charlie sets out to become stronger, eventually leading his loved ones to safety when danger arises.




Told using a combination of unique visual and musical artistry, Little Lights aims to inspire others to find their own light and to not be afraid to share it.



Little Lights is a passion project that started with two artists, Rivelle Mallari and Reginald Espiritu, who envisioned telling a story by combining the art of animation and a live musical scoring.
