Overall Health Improvement with Nutri10 Plus and Dayzinc Syrup

One of the challenges that every parent encounter is how to provide the best nutrition to our children.  It becomes more challenging when our kid is a picker eater.  No matter how delicious and nutritious are the foods which we serve them, kids will always find a way to give us excuses not to eat them.  So what we usually do is ask for advise from our pediatrician or even other moms on what to do.  The usual solution that you will get is to provide vitamin supplement to your child so he/she will meet the required daily nutrition his/her body needs.  

My youngest daughter is a picky eater so the pediatrician prescribed vitamin supplements for her.  As the brand was recommended by the doctor, I gave it to her even if she really disliked the taste.  Middle of January this year when I noticed that she lost appetite and after that were series of visits to the doctor.  Aside from the cold weather that caused her asthma and/or cough and colds (which really affected her taste), she no longer wants to take her vitamins.  Even after she got well from her sickness, she resisted each time I tried to give her vitamins.  I decided to find another brand that would suit her taste, with an affordable price and most importantly, an effective supplement. Luckily, Wert Philippines provided us some trial packs of Nutri10 Plus and Dayzinc Syrup.  

These vitamin supplements are manufactured and distributed by Wert Philippines.  For Nutri10 Plus, I gave her the recommended dose of 2.5 mL (1-9 years old) and also 2.5 mL of Dayzinc (2-6 years old) .  Per 5mL, Nutri10 Plus contains the following: 100 mg Chlorella growth factor (CGF) , 25 mg taurine, 300 mg lysine, vit A palmitate (equiv to 420 RE) 764 IU, vit D3 (cholecalciferol) (equiv to 5.25 mcg) 210 IU, vit E acetate (equiv to 9 mg-TE) 13.5 IU, vit B1 (thiamine HCl) 1 mg, vit B2 (riboflavin) 1 mg, vit B3 (niacinamide) 15 mg, vit B6 (pyridoxine HCl) 1.3 mg, vit B12 (cyanocobalamin)  2.4 mcg, vit C (ascorbic acid) 60 mg, elemental Zn (as Zn sulfate) 6.8 mg. As for the Dayzinc, each 5 mL contains equivalent of 50 mg of Ascorbic Acid and 10 mg of elemental zinc as stated in its nutrition information.  

After more than three weeks of taking Nutri10 Plus and Dayzinc, I think I finally found the right vitamin supplements for my choosy daughter.   She liked the ponkan flavor of Nutri10 Plus and Dayzinc syrup and most importantly, I noticed a big difference in my child's appetite.  My four-year old kid seems to have improved taste for nutritious foods as she now eats variety of foods consisting of fish, pork, chicken, seafoods including fruits and vegetables. Mealtimes are less of a struggle these days especially if her favorite foods are served like soups (mushroom soup, crab and corn soup, sinigang and chicken sopas are her favorite dishes). She is also very excited during lunch as it is the time for taking her vitamins.  Her resistance to illness has improved as she is not having asthma attacks or cough/colds despite the very hot weather the past days (though it is stated in its packaging that it has no approved therapeutic claims).  But, what is important for me is that she now eats variety of healthy foods that will provide her all the necessary natural vitamins and minerals that her body needs to keep her strong and healthy.

I am thankful to have tried the Nutri10 Plus and Dayzinc syrup as it really improved my kid's appetite.  She has stronger immunity to diseases and better overall health. That means less worries for me and the whole family.

blessed is he who reads...

Reposted...just some reflections for the Holy Week...

Got quite overwhelmed by the voluminous work and readings I had to deal with. Sometimes I feel more like "frazzing", got this word from TIME magazine’s article which means "frantic, ineffective multitasking, typically with the delusion that you are getting a lot done. The quality of the work, however, is poor". Grace under pressure…:-) whatever… still need to get going and BE HAPPY!!!

In the month of January I became a book geek, I was flooded by reading materials which were more than I could handle. How do you expect to read more than a thousand pages and understand and appreciate the content of it especially if you know that you are getting pressured just merely looking at the thickness of it? Well, really need to read them because those were really essential matter (work-related, what else)!

I am not a bookworm actually I read only when it is necessary, and I only read those books that will not take so much of my time. I remember those times when friends would lend me their bestsellers, I would start a chapter or two then jump to the end of the story. But, I am really impressed with people who love to read thick paperbacks and find them really admiring (how I wish I was gifted with the same patience). I remember one time when I shared an elevator ride with Sen. Enrile (he had an office at the same building as ours, some years ago) he was holding a book, actually he was not only holding it, he was reading it (I guess that is just how great minds came to be). I asked myself “would there be a time in my life when I also need to do that, reading while on the go, even in the elevator?” I think this is it, with all those RAs, PDs, SRS, FS, S&P etc. that I need to be aware of, I really need to find time to read wherever and whatever situation I am in, and I guess my habit of skip reading would not do, have to read every pages of them. If that does not qualify me to be a bookworm, I don’t know the meaning of the word anymore! My friend was teasing me when she saw me reading saying that it doesn’t look more like me, I guess I have to accept the fact that it already becomes my destiny.

Gosh, never thought I could muster enough time to read but I was able to snatch some from my precious moment to have an interesting read, too. I was able to take a peek at “The Food Bible”, the one I started reading last October. Actually, I read it in random, i.e. whatever topic that interests me. BTW, I really bought this book because middle of last year, I was alarmed that whenever I wake up in the morning I always have this puffy eyes which I suspected that it was something connected to my eating habits or the foods that I eat. To my surprise, the doctor that I visited could not give me concrete explanation, or at least refer me to a specialist who could give me the answer to my problem as to why I was experiencing such abnormal occurrence dropping the topic as something trivial which the doctor only said that I could have cried the previous night that’s why I woke up with puffy eyes. I could have advised her to change career and be a soothsayer instead :-) .

Buying this book was worthy indeed because I have learned that there really was a connection between my eating habits and puffy eyes and I was able to go to a specialist and correct the problem before anything gets out of hand. Another reason that I bought this book was because I really wanted to gain weight (just one of my new year’s resolutions). I was this thin girl all my life, so for a change I decided that I want to gain weight this year. Surprisingly I was able to do it with success. From a very thin 87 lbs frame I gained almost 20 lbs in eight weeks. I also followed a food regimen that’s written under the “food for weight control” section of the book. Of course I got to follow a healthy eating diet because I do not want to end up too tubby for my hubby. I just need to attain an ideal weight, keep diseases at bay and make this thin thing a part of the past. I intend to buy some more of this book to be given to those people who I think will need it.

Going back to reading, the reading marathon carried on until this month, that is one of the problems when you’re not getting any younger and you have to cope into a corporate world, so much is expected of you and you need to know an array of different ideas or else expect yourself to lag behind those people who knows more, I observe that missed opportunities happen because of not having sufficient knowledge. However, there were downside effects for those times that I need to spend with work (reading), I missed some opportunities and lost social interaction, missed two or three occasions with friends, failed to make it to family gatherings, broken promises with colleagues which I really feel guilty and apologetic 😍 SORRY GUYS, hope to make up to all of you next time.

I still got a lot of reading to do, but somehow, I have this guilt feeling that compared to the amount of time I spent with those technical writings, republic acts and so on which were essential for career advancement I overlooked reading the gospel which is far more essential for life improvement. So while I was writing this blog, I stopped for a while, looked for a passage in the bible that tells about the “significance” of reading trying to look for justification in what I was doing. At the book of Revelation I found “Blessed is he who reads…”which sparked a striking notion of myself as being “blessed” as everyone else who has this penchant [either as innate or only because of necessity] for reading. I said to myself, maybe it is right to conclude that with reading comes knowledge, with knowledge comes opportunities and with opportunities comes success and blessings but when I finished reading the passage I sensed that there was far deeper meaning in it than I thought.

"Blessed is he who reads aloud the words of the prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written therein; for the time is near" (Revelation 1:3).

I hope that no matter how busy we are, whatever activities we are involve in right now, whether we love reading or not, we still have time to learn the gospel for it is far more important to life and it is one great reading with a promise. God Bless Us All!!!
