A few years ago, the Philippine government launched a campaign to promote proper nutrition on a per-meal basis. Dubbed Pinggang Pinoy, its aim is to be an “easy to understand food guide that uses a familiar food plate model” to give Filipinos an idea of what a healthy meal is.
However, not all Filipinos have immediate access to meals that meet the recommended servings of Pinggang Pinoy. Because of this, they may not be able to supply their bodies with the right amount of essential nutrients. This in turn can lead to low energy levels, a weaker immune system, and poor daily performance, just to name a few.
In line with the National Nutrition Month, New Marketlink Pharmaceutical Corporation (NMPC) offers Nature’Z-C, a dietary supplement that combines the power of four essential vitamins and minerals in one capsule to help Filipinos meet their recommended energy and nutrient requirements per meal.
Just one capsule of Nature’Z-C a day provides all the necessary vitamins and minerals needed to fuel day-to-day activities. Its “FOURmula” harnesses all the benefits of malunggay, calcium ascorbate, zinc sulfate, and glycine max to ensure proper nutrition, good health, and improved well-being.
Malunggay or Moringa oleifera is a good source of antioxidants, and may help prevent high blood sugar levels and cholesterol while reducing chronic inflammation.
Moringa leaves are rich in amino acids and are a good source of soluble fiber that acts as the “sweeper” of the intestine. Moreover, malunggay is also clinically proven effective and safe for augmentation of breast milk, among mothers.
Zinc sulfate is a vital micronutrient essential for protein synthesis, cell growth and differentiation, immune function, and intestinal transport of water and electrolytes.
Zinc is also effective in promoting wound healing and works as a memory enhancer. It’s also a significant trace element that contributes to the structure and action of countless enzymes involved in many different metabolic processes.
Since the body does not have a specialized zinc storage system, individuals are required to have daily intakes for beneficial results.
Both calcium and vitamin C are needed for optimum health. Calcium helps build strong bones and teeth while vitamin C boosts the immune system. Combining these two releases increased calcium and ascorbate ions, which are beneficial especially to those with sensitive stomachs.
Calcium ascorbate is a non-acidic vitamin C that can be taken even on an empty stomach. It has an 85% absorption rate and the substance stays inside the body for six to eight hours without increasing the acid concentration in the stomach and triggering side effects.
Also known as soybean, Glycine max is responsible for plenty of health benefits as it contains large amounts of protein, isoflavones, and fiber. It’s an excellent source of essential amino acids, as well as lecithin and phospholipid, which have been studied scientifically for numerous health conditions.
Moreover, Glycine max is packed with phytonutrients that are beneficial to the cardiovascular system because of its high polyunsaturated fat and low saturated fat content.
Nature’Z-C has received recognition for its powerful and unique formula. It has been named “Most Outstanding Calcium Ascorbate Product” and “Consumers’ Choice Award,” as well as earning the “Product Excellence Citation” from the 19th ASIA PACIFIC EXCELLENCE AWARD (APEA) held in HongKong.
