This year it happened at the Mall of Asia Arena hosted by Ylona Garcia and Justin Qurino.

Ylona Garcia and Khalil Ramos

The Coke Studio Concert was a gift from Coca-Cola to everyone for the overwhelming love and support they received for the Coke Studio Season 2. Headlined by Coke Studio Season 2 artists, our summer became a wave ride of emotions and celebration from the variety of their lineup. Solo and collaborative performances were given by Sam Concepcion, Khalil Ramos, Quest, Patty Tiu, Ben & Ben, Kriesha Chu, Gab and John of Urbandub, Shanti Dope, Abra, IV of Spades, KZ Tandingan, Juan Miguel Severo, and

Coke Studio Season 2 is about Homecoming to our younger selves, homecoming to our roots and rich diversity. This is the time to look back on our first love, ups and downs, dreams, and self-discovery that ultimately ends up with coming home through our love for music.

Echoing Women Empowerment by improving their health

Woman running

In celebration of Women’s month last March, we hear a lot of emphasis towards empowering the female population and urge for gender equality. The Philippine Commission for Women (PCW) adopts the theme “Making Change Work for Women” which aims to implement programs and services that address strategic gender needs of women.

In our society nowadays, more and more women are engaging in what used to be jobs only meant for men. In some cases, we witness women excelling in the corporate industry more than male. This development brings a positive outlook towards the goal of gender equality.

Aside from these developments, women still hold certain roles in the family, being a mother and a wife has its own necessities and striking a balance between these personas can be very challenging.

In order to do this, Women need additional supplements to stay healthy and be able to prolong their roles that they have to accomplish. It is noted that women needs more calcium intake than men. This is due to the fact that women go through several life stages that increases their calcium needs.

  1. Puberty

During this stage, women are at the prime of their being active physically. This is also the stage when they start menstruating.It is important to consume the right levels of calcium everyday to prevent the risk of different bone conditions, and try to build up your calcium levels from your younger days.

  1. Adulting

In starting an adult life and having a family, Women needs a certain level of estrogen. Estrogen is essential for woman sex hormone. Estrogen also maintains the bone health. Calcium is crucialin maintaining estrogen intact in a woman’s body.

  1. Pregnancy

During this stage, woman is required to double their calcium intake regularly.This is to supply the calcium needs of the fetus as much as her own. The fetus needs normal levels of calcium to ensure proper heart function and rate as well as proper function of nervous system and muscles.Neglecting the additional calcium intake during your pregnancy will result in utilization of your stored calcium which will be harmful for you in the long term.

  1. Menopause

Study shows that the bone density declines by 20% after menopause when estrogen level starts to deplete, hence, it is recommended to take sufficient levels of calcium to prevent the problem of bones osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis, is a condition where bones become too porous and loose its density. As bones become more porous and fragile, the risk of fracture is greatly increased. The loss of bone occurs silently and progressively. Often there are no symptoms until the first fracture occurs.
