GARDENIA: Happy Bread Day!


GARDENIA: Happy Bread Day!
 
This is our daily Bread! My brother and I are Gardenia fanatics. We eat different Gardenia breads at home almost everyday. My favorite is the Gardenia Wheat Pandesal, my brother loves the Gardenia Wheat Bread.
 
We were luckily invited last Saturday, October 20, 2012 at Eastwood Mall to a fun-filled “Happy Bread Day” 2012 courtesy of Gardenia Philippines. It was a fun, fun Bread day!
We lined up first and registered for the Happy Bread Day event. 
 
Each of us were given a passport. After reading the mechanics of the Passport to the ultimate Bread experience we proceeded to the booths and had our passport stamped. One (1) booth is equivalent to one (1) stamp.
 
We got to taste test some Gardenia breads together with other product, like for example, a bite size of Bibbo hotdog pinned in a Gardenia Bread.
 The staff at the booth then stamped your passport. 
 
You get a souvenir / token after you visited the Gardenia Exhibit Booth and at least four (4) other booths.
 
I got a free eco bag.
 “Happy Bread Day Show” hosted by popular actress, host and dancer, Ms. Regine Tolentino.
There was also a special cooking demo featuring Chef Rosebud Benitez, former host of the well-loved cooking show “Quickfire,” together with actor and host Drew Arellano.
Various games and tricks was held for the enjoyment of kids and the kids-at-heart!


  “Happy Bread Day.”

Gano Cordyceps : A health and energy booster for people on the go


Gano Cordyceps : A health and energy booster for people on the go


 
Trusted by athletes worldwide. Cordyceps , for people with an active lifestyle,may help enhance physical stamina and fight fatigue, promote healthy respiratory and lung function. It helps reduce bad cholesterol, blood sugar and increase good cholesterol. It may alleviate back and knee pains, and may have anti-aging value. It may also help alleviate sexual dysfunction in males.  

If your fast-paced lifestyle, sports-filled days, frequent partying and/or tedious work demands get you wondering where you’d get the next outburst of sustained energy, not to mention, aid to health, you now have the answer. (Or in certain cases, if your health condition prevents you from pursuing an active life, like some people interviewed with liver or some specific ailments, you may now have the answer.) A food supplement trusted by athletes worldwide, which occupies, in fact, a long history in the tradition of the Olympics, is now in the country through the trusted brand Gano Excel, distributed locally through Gano iTouch Phils. But Cordyceps is not only for the sporty and athletic people, it’s also for those of you who off and on feel that your energy is zapped but simply need to get going.

According to the Gano Excel Founder, Sir Leow Soon SengNutritious and safe to take, Cordyceps is an all-natural, organic capsule made out of an edible mushroom species named Cordyceps, which is used as herbal medicine. It is thus taken not only for energy and stamina, but also for good health.”

“Traditionally called Cordyceps Sinensis, which widely known and used in traditional Chinese medicine,it has been given names in both China and Japan: the Chinese call it ‘DongChongXiaCao’or DCXC, while the Japanese refer to it as ‘Tockukaso’, which means ‘winter-insect and summer-plant’.“

“It is as old as the Qing Dynasty of the 1700s and has been written about by noted Chinese scribes, as something made up of proteins, fibre, crude fats, carbohydrates, cordycepin, cordycepic acid, polysaccharide, and different vitamins, among others; it also increases oxygen utilization and enhances the production of ATP—Adenosine triphosphate, which transports chemical energy within the cell for metabolism,” he adds.

Other Gano Excel research findings about Cordyceps Sinensis: other bioactive components are nucleotides, needed to produce RNA and DNA; ergosterol, which is an important precursor of vitamin D2;amino acids which are protein building blocks; fatty acids, both saturated and unsaturated, which help in lowering blood lipids and protect from cardiovascular diseases; and metal elements, such as Zn, Mg, Mn, which are good for the gonads and kidney. This is verified by the Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, which in 2008 stated that Cordyceps Sinensis has a protective effect on organs. From the said journal, one can gather that it deters liver fibrosis, hastens macrophage phagocytosis, and enhances the immune function of organisms with its strong capacity to clear the virus.”

What’s more, Cordyceps was found to boost the weak immune system and suppress overactive immune reaction. This is according The Journal of Leukocyte Biology Volume 85, June 2009. Several studies are available to conclude that Cordycyeps may help enhance physical stamina and fight fatigue, and may promote healthy respiratory and lung function. It helps reduce bad cholesterol and blood sugar and increase good cholesterol. It may alleviate back and knee pains, and may have anti-aging value. It may also help alleviate sexual dysfunction in males.

Sir Leow adds, “There are studies that indicate that Cordyceps has anticancer, anti-metastatic, immuno-enhancing, and antioxidant effects. This is according to Gene Bruno of the 2009 clinical trials MHS of Huntington College of Health Sciences, which support the efficacy of Cordyceps especially on the liver, kidney and the immune system.”

Bruno also made a statement on how Cordyceps aids in endurance. He cites the testimonial of eight female champion Chinese athletes, who vied in 1993 for a track distance event in the Stuttgard World Championships who broke several world records in 1993 in the Chinese National Games in Beijing and won a series of medals at the German World Athletic Championships. The athletes said in unison that they included Cordyceps in their diet along with intense training and dedication. There are now even Filipinos who have tried Cordyceps and will soon be giving testimonials on its efficacy.

幼い頃から体を動かすことが大好きで、小学校から中学校までの6年間はバレーボールを、 高校では陸上部で 100m ハードルと走り高跳びを得意種目としていました。 現在でもランニングが生活の一部となっており健康美が目標です。

オリンピック出場の夢を果たすことが出来なかった父の夢を果たすため、 私が父の代わりに世界を目指すようになりました。 世界の架け橋になれるようなグローバルな女性になりたいと思います。

今後はミスインターナショナル 2012 日本代表として、 得意の英語を生かしてチャリティー活動や国際交流に参加させて頂いたり、 大好きなスポーツを通じて健康的な美しさを世の中にアピールしていきたいと考えています。


I have always enjoyed exercising since I was young; I practiced volleyball for 6 years during my elementary and secondary school, and also was a member of the track and field team during my high school years where I excelled in the 100MH and the high jump category.

Even now, running is a great part of my everyday life, therefore I am confident of my healthy beauty.

The reason why I stand before you and the world today is because I am here representing on behalf of my father.My father’s dream was to somehow participate on a global stage. He dedicated his life training to become an Olympic athlete.

I would like to represent Japan as Miss International 2012 by participating in international cultural exchanges and charity activities, and by bringing awareness to the world my love for a healthy beautiful life through sports.
