Staying healthy is everyone’s priority these days, especially with the coronavirus still hovering around. There is a great emphasis on fitness, good nutrition and keeping a strong immunity. Of course this is easier said than done as life circumstances during the pandemic hardly make us motivated to do things for our own good. Mental health is still a concern for most people.
Eating a balanced diet and exercising well are oftentimes prescribed to avoid being sick, but how many among busy working professionals actually have the time to make sure they’re eating veggies or running for at least 30 minutes on the treadmill?
This is where supplements – in the form of vitamins, minerals and boosters – come in.
“Supplements are critical because there is something called micronutrient malnutrition. You can feel healthy but if your body is not taking the right amount of micronutrients from the food you eat, then you can still get malnutrition.” This is what top US-based immunology expert Dr. Emmanuel Sarmiento said during a health forum last April 2 dubbed ” Boosted and Fit in the Pandemic.”
Dr. Sarmiento flew to Manila from his base in South Carolina, USA to introduce Essen Immunoboost SP – a product he formulated himself. He noted that that the supplement is designed with natural active components that work on the cellular level to help maintain immune cells to function properly. The doctor added that he was inspired to develop the product because his wife had a protracted battle with cancer.
Essen Immunoboost SP has scientifically-curated ingredients that include Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Thiamine, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Zinc, Selenium, Giner, and turmeric.
” There are three things I found very important to consider regarding micronutrients and supplements. They have to be in their natural form, they have to be dosed appropriately and they have to be safe. Essen Immunoboost has science-based ingredients with natural active components and is gluten-free. Just one capsule a day is all it takes,” Dr. Sarmiento pointed out
” Supplements like Essen Immunoboost SP are important for patients undergoing chemotherapy, or those preparing for surgeries, or are still recovering. Older people must also be taking the right supplements because they are susceptible to immunosenescence – the process of immune dysfunction that comes with age,” he added.
Attesting on the efficacy of his formulation, Dr. Sarmiento bared that his colleagues in the USA who added Essen Immunboost SP to their diet did not get infected by COVID-19. While some did contract the virus. they had only very mild symptoms.
“Immunoboost is not a cure on its own, but it is important to prime, strengthen and balance the immune system. While adopting a healthy lifestyle and having good nutrition are proven to be helpful, in many cases, these alone are not enough,” the doctor stated.
During the health event held at Estancia de San Lorenzo in San Mateo, Rizal, Dr. Sarmiento was joined by nutrition expert Julianne Malong, fitness advocate Jill Ngo and Coach Nix Quejada.
Aside from Immunoboost, Dr. Sarmiento also developed the Essen Fit capsule made from mangosteen and turmeric . It is designed to boost energy, speed up recovery and promote weight loss. The two supplements are available in leading drug stores and in e-commerce sites like Shopee. You can also find them on essen.ph, edl-store.com and immunoboostsp.com
