Feel Terrific, Feel Wonderful with Atienza Naturale's Food Supplements

There are a lot of food supplements in the market today, claiming to be natural and promising a lot of health benefits but only few really delivers.


Atienza Naturale is one of the very few health products that I can attest to be effective. Few years back, my Uncle had a respiratory problem. He easily got infected by coughs and colds which caused high fever and eventually flu. 

During those times, I see Kuya Kim advertise about the Aitenza Naturale Malunggay Capsule very often, so I bought some for my Uncle for him to try. After 2 weeks of continued use, he felt a lot better, cough and colds disappeared and with months of use, we observed that he rarely gets fever or flu. In fact, we shared his story when Atienza Naturale launched "The Wonder Stories of the Wonder Gulay" contest in 2014 and his story won the consolation prize of P3,000 and Atienza Naturale products.

Until now my Uncle is using the product daily, which we believe has helped a lot to strengthen his immunity against diseases. He is in fact 83 years old now but he still manages to do the things he love especially his passion in planting crops which is also his way of earning a living for him and his wife.


You might wonder what's with the Wonder Gulay - Atienza Naturale Malunggay Capsule. First, let me share a fact about Malunggay. Gram-for-gram Malunggay (Moringa oleifera) leaves contain more Vitamin A than Carrots, more Calcium than milk, more Iron than spinach, more Vitamin C than oranges, and more Potassium than bananas. 

Malunggay leaves are great sources of Vitamin A, B-Vitamins and minerals such as calcium and iron. What’s more, the leaves are also rich in sulfur-containing amino acids methionine and cystine.

Due to its high content of potent antioxidants Vitamins A, C, and E, Malunggay is an outstanding neutralizer of unstable free-radicals that can react with and damage other molecules. Antioxidants diminish wrinkles and fine lines associated with aging. They may also prevent the onset of various chronic disorders like arthritis, cancer and heart and kidney diseases.

Malunggay is widely considered a “wonder vegetable” because of its immense nutritional value. It helps promote good eyesight and digestion. It may also provide help in cases of scurvy, asthma, earache and headaches.

And due to its exceptional calcium content, it is consumed by lactating mothers to produce more milk  to feed their babies. That’s why Malunggay is referred to as “Mother’s Best Friend”.


WHAT MAKES MALUNGGAY THE WONDER GULAY?

Its leaves are good sources of iron, calcium, ascorbic acid and phosphorus.
Malunggay can help lower blood pressure, aid in relieving pain caused by rheumatism, headache and migraines. Malunggay is an anti-tumor plant rich in very potent antioxidants which may help prevent the onset of various chronic diseases like arthritis, cancer and heart and kidney diseases.

Internal organs are said to benefit from malunggay, good for treating liver and spleen problems and for joint pains. Malunggay is a proven “Galactogogue”, valuable for lactating women as it helps stimulate milk production for feeding babies.

Malunggay has been extensively studied by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Department of Science and Technology with a stamp of approval and recommendation. In 2014, physicians at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) – Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center (OMMC)’s Department of Internal Medicine and Intensive Care Unit embarked on a landmark study presenting the potential use of malunggay as a natural alternative to standard preparations used for lowering and regulating blood sugar.  To ensure that the malunggay in the study was administered in standardized doses, the research team opted to use Atienza Naturale Malunggay Capsules, as it featured the purest form of the herb in a medium that could be taken conveniently. 

According to Doctors Rainier Nery Mozo and Imelda Caole-Ang, an extract derived from malunggay was instrumental in reducing Hemoglobin A1c, a key indicator in the level of blood glucose, in a control group of 60 patients at the OMMC.  The study showed a mean reduction of 0.6% in the blood glucose of involved patients after regular dosage of malunggay capsules. 


Last July 1, 2017 in Santiago Filipino Restaurant in Quezon City; Atienza Naturale launched their newest product which is the Turmeric Capsule. 

Turmeric, also known as curcuma longa, is a very common herb. Often referred to as the “Queen of Spices,” its main characteristics are a pepper-like aroma, sharp taste and golden color. 

According to the Journal of the American Chemical Society, turmeric contains a wide range of antioxidant, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, anticarcinogenic, antimutagenic and anti-inflammatory properties.





It is also loaded with many healthy nutrients such as protein, dietary fiber, niacin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, potassium, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium and zinc. Due to all these factors, turmeric is often used to treat a wide variety of health problems.

Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant with Bioactive Compounds!

Antioxidants neutralize free radicals that damages the cells causing health problems while Bioactive Compounds have medicinal properties that may help in the treatment of some conditions such as:

INFLAMMATION
Turmeric contains a natural anti-inflammatory compound called Curcumin that can be beneficial for people suffering from chronic inflammatory diseases such as arthritis.

CARDIOVASCULAR CONDITIONS
Compounds in turmeric help to lower low-density lipoprotein, or "bad," cholesterol levels and prevent cholesterol from building plaque on blood vessel walls. Turmeric can also prevent platelets from clumping together, which may reduce the risk of blood clots.


CANCER PREVENTION
Turmeric’s preventive effects may relate to its antioxidant properties which protect cells from damage to help prevent or aid in the treatment of several types of cancers, including prostate, breast, ski and colon cancer. Intensive research is still ongoing for Turmeric’s anti-cancer properties. 


PREVENTION OF DIABETES
Studies have shown that curcumin may provide ideal intervention for Type 2 diabetes capable of mitigating characteristic pathophysiological hallmarks of the disease such as elevated blood sugar and insulin resistance. According to clinical research, curcumin has glucose lowering effect and improves fatty acid oxidation and utilization. 


NEURODEGENERATIVE CONDITIONS
Turmeric has also been studied to prevent or slow down the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease which is a leading cause of dementia. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of curcumin is generally believed to be cause various improvements in the pathological process of Alzheimer’s disease.

Both the Atienza Naturale Malunggay Capsule and the Turmeric Capsule is encapsulated in vegetable capsules not in animal based substances. Atienza Naturale products are avaialble at all Mercury Drugstores and other leading drugstores nationwide.
