First, you would have to forgive me, because I’m gonna go on a bit of self-love.
On any given day, I’d like to believe that I am pretty awesome, even when there are days when I feel like I am not.
I have a corporate gig where I do branding, PR and events (and I must say, I am pretty good at it); I have a side hustle here and there: writing press releases for various agencies plus I manage an event here and there; I blog (though with a hefty backlog, PR friends- sorry); I travel here and there; I do calligraphy and I draw. I do all of these while playing the role of a wife to an amazing guy, daughter to the most awesome parents, sister to crazy yet loving siblings, friend to equally insanely smart friends and a lot more roles for various people in various stages of my life.
To say I am busy is an understatement. To say that I am stressed… Well, that’s a major one.
A wise senator once said that she eats death threats for breakfast. Well, she ain’t got nothing on me because stress is my favorite brand of popcorn!
What do I do when I get stressed? Usually I read, blog or stream Korean dramas or TV shows and ogle these cute Korean hearthrobs. Or I watch NHK and pretend I am living in Japan.
But when it gets really bad, that’s when I rely on my Fern-C.
Fern-C has vitamin C which strengthens the immune system and is regarded by many as a “cure all” for most ailments, because its primary function is to boost the immune system, protecting the body from flu, cough, bronchitis and other viral and bacterial infections. Aside from this, it also acts as a potent anti-oxidant. Finally, Sodium Ascorbate FERN-C also promotes healthy gums, teeth, bones and other connective tissues.
While it is a common misconception that Vitamin C comes only in one form – Ascorbic Acid, the truth is there is in fact another form of Vitamin C called Sodium Ascorbate and it is actually superior to Ascorbic Acid in areas where it counts.
For one, Sodium Ascorbate dissolves faster upon ingestion. This means that the body reaps the benefits of Vitamin C faster, enabling it to quickly act on stress. In addition to that, Vitamin C Sodium Ascorbate supplements are non-acidic and thus better tolerated. Unlike Ascorbic Acid which causes stomach discomfort unless taken with meals, Soduim Ascorbate can be taken on an empty stomach.
With its pH level at 7.5 to 7.8, Sodium Ascorbate FERN-C is alkaline-based to neutralize acidity in the stomach. This makes it the perfect vitamin for those with hyper-acidity, and people whose schedules cause irregular sleeping and frequent meal skipping.
The good news is that the number one Vitamin C Sodium Ascorbate brand in the Philippines, FERN-C, which used to be available only via multi-level marketing, is now on sale via retail and can be bought in any major drugstores nationwide.
The quality of FERN-C is assured because each pack is certified with the Quali-C seal, as the Sodium Ascorbate which is the active ingredient of FERN-C was developed and it manufactured by DSM, the only European Vitamin C manufacturer.
