CarbTrim and Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

One of the best ways to drink a teaspoon or a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar is to mix this with your regular drink of juice or water. In fact, one of the instructions to having this regularly is to drink a glass of warm water with a T of Apple Cider Vinegar. You can add honey to make the mix sweeter and easier to drink.

This is my way of having a tablespoon or sometimes more, of Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar: mix with CarbTrim and add a slice of lemon or navel orange. TIP: slice a lemon or navel orange and put these in the freezer so you do not need to slice every time you need to make these drinks.

CarbTrim is a carb-blocking product in a refreshing iced tea drink.  It contains Phase 2 white kidney bean, a natural extract clinically-proven to block up to 66% of carbs you eat. ~source

Two of the many benefits of Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar are the following: (Source)

  • Helps control weight
  • Promotes digestion & ph Balance

Now these two would be great together in losing the weight. We need to remember though to moderate food intake and take one or two kinds of exercise to help lose the unwanted pounds.

By the way, I won TEN BOXES of CarbTrim through this photo, so go follow CarbTrim on Twitter and who knows, you might also win boxes of CarbTrim like me 😀

Here are the boxes.

Fashion for Boys from SM Kids’ Fashion

Who said boys can’t be fashion-conscious? They can be with the proper clothes (and swagger, lol) from where else but SM Kids’ Fashion.

Below are some fashion ideas from the  2012 Philippine fashion Week and SM Kids’ Fashion we can get for those handsome little men in our lives:

Bradley:

Colorful shorts bring instant liveliness to any ensemble. Capture that energy by pairing them with clothes in complementary—not matching!—colors. Make the outfit pop with sneakers that create contrast with the rest of the hues being worn. A good rule of thumb is to mix up warm colors, like red and orange, with cool colors like green and blue. A contrasting cardigan adds a touch of class, making little boys look dapper, yet casual.

Boys Got Style:

While loud colors can look debonair on a young boy by themselves, bringing in some contrast through additional layers creates depth and texture to the entire outfit. A sporty black jacket makes yellow shirts and red jeans pop, while taupe helps a red collared shirt blend in with dark blue jeans by cooling the vivid color down. The end result is a fashionable look that’s versatile enough for both night and day.

Dude:

Juniors and pre-teens are certified rockstars when dressed in Dude’s duds. Make heavily-textured shirts look sleek and sophisticated with blazers in neutral shades. If you want to keep the look casual, roll up the blazer’s sleeves along with the shirts to add a colorful cuff at the end. With a pair of dark-wash jeans and a stylish pair of sneaks to complete the ensemble, juniors are definite head-turners!

Modern Prince:

Dressed up doesn’t always have to mean toned down for kids. Brighten up the standard black suit with a colorful bowtie in complementary shades, like periwinkle. For a daytime affair, have some fun with a white suit by adding livelier colors like turquoise and salmon. A nice pair of boat shoes loosens things up without straying into informal territory. Crown the outfit with a stylish hairdo, and your dashing little gentleman will be the talk of the town.

Head over to SM Kids’ Fashion section and get the perfect outfit for your sons, nephews and godchildren.

Here are some fashion ideas for your little girls. 

VitaPops

Have your children tried VitaPops yet?

VitaPops

Now here is newer and better way to get the children to load up on vitamin C to protect themselves from illnesses.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here are some FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS about VITAPOPS, from the makers of Ceelin:

1. What is VitaPops?

VitaPops is the first & only Vitamin C in pop rocks format in the market that guarantees full protection while ensuring that kids enjoy the experience of taking it:

Vitamin C: protection from sickness
Pop Rocks Format: fizzles and pops inside the mouth for an enjoyable experience

2. How is it packaged?
VitaPops is contained in single-dose sachet packaging so there’s no need to worry about spillage or breakage of bottles. It’s very handy and convenient to bring anywhere.

3. How much is it?
Each sachet costs P10.

4. When will it be available in the market?
It is already available in all leading drugstores nationwide.

5. Is VitaPops sweet like candy?
VitaPops contains just the right amount of sweetness so that kids will enjoy its taste. The best part about its sugar content is that it only contains 1/5 the sugar level found in regular vitamins, which reduces the risk of tooth decay.

6. Is VitaPops strictly for 7 to 12 years old only?
Children as young as four years old can already take and enjoy VitaPops.

7. How often should kids take VitaPops?
Children can take 1-2 sachets per day or as directed by a pediatrician.

8. Can my kids get overdosed with VitaPops?
No, Vitamin C is water-soluble so any excessive intake will just be excreted through the urine.

9. How is it different from Ceelin Chewables?
We know the challenge of dealing with 7-12 year olds, we understand the need of moms to continue protecting their kids from sickness and keeping them healthy without the difficulty of giving vitamins/healthy food. We need to reward kids just to take what’s good for them. Finally, we have exactly what we need with with Ceelin Chewables as well as VitaPops — available in fun format options, which guarantee full protection. Both are yummy and healthy for kids and are in formats that they love: chewable and pop rocks.

10. Vitamin C in VitaPops comes in which form?
VitaPops is in a non-acidic Sodium Ascorbate formulation. It doesn’t cause stomach irritation even if it is consumed on an empty stomach.

11. What is the shelf life of VitaPops? Because it’s made of granules, don’t they get sticky and solidify after sometime?
VitaPops is best consumed within 2 years from when it was produced. Solidification happens when the product is exposed to humidity and moisture. To prevent this from happening, we recommend keeping VitaPops in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

12. What makes VitaPops pop? Is that safe?
VitaPops is safe to take and is FDA-approved. It pops because when the granules that contain Carbon Dioxide come in contact with moisture, it dissolves and the gas escapes quickly producing a fizzing and popping sound.

13. Why should I give VitaPops to my children? Why should I trust this new product?
Aside from being a vitamin that boosts immunity and that kids enjoy due to its unique and fun formulation, VitaPops comes from the makers of Ceelin, the country’s leading brand of Vitamin C from Unilab. You are assured of affordable, quality healthcare.

14. Can my kids get allergies from VitaPops?
VitaPops is generally safe and does not cause any allergies. But it is still best to consult with your pediatrician.

15. How much Vitamin C can my child get from VitaPops? How does it compare to vegetables, fruits and milk?
1 VitaPops sachet contains 50 mg of Vitamin C and is equivalent to 5 glasses of milk / 28 pieces of calamansi / 1 ½ glasses of freshly squeezed orange.

16. Could vegetables, fruits and milk rich in Vitamin C give my child the necessary amount to ensure full immunity?
While these may be healthy for your kids, there may not be enough Vitamin C to satisfy the recommended daily intake of 35 mg for 7-9 yrs old and 45 mg for 10-12 yrs old. For example, for every 100g serving of fresh squash only 9 mg of Vitamin C can be provided; 100g of Cabbage at 36.6 mg of Vitamin C; Tomato at 13 mg. For milk, every 250 mL serving only has around 2.6 mg of Vitamin C. It would still be recommended for your kids to take Vitamin C supplements for full Vitamin C protection.

VitaPops is a product of Unilab.
