Glorious A Beneficial Coffee for your Health

Coffee had a dreadful reputation for decades. The Filipino habit of putting a lot of sugar and cream in one’s cup has been linked to high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, as well as aggravated diabetes.

Although no one can refuse a Pinoy coffee drinker his morning cup, the level of sugar in commercial 3-in-1 coffee mixes is a cause for concern. One 20-gram sachet of the leading brand contains 14.6 grams of sugar. Consider how much sugar you’re consuming if you drink three cups of coffee a day on average.

What About Sugar-Free Coffee?

For health-conscious individuals, especially diabetics, turning to sugar-free coffee mixes seems to be the only option. This meant enduring tasteless cups of coffee just to satisfy their caffeine fix —until Stevia came along.

Stevia is the low calorie, zero sugar sweetener that tastes so much better than artificial sweeteners.

Stevia is an herb with a sweet-tasting extract that comes from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant. It has been enjoyed since pre-Columbian South America where indigenous people used the herb to sweeten their tea and other drinks.

The plant’s taste stems from steviol glycosides, molecules which are 250–300 times sweeter than regular sugar.

It became popular among health-conscious individuals because stevia has a very low caloric content. This makes it perfect for dieters and people who are trying to lose weight.

Moreover, Stevia makes coffee and tea taste so much better without adding any calories.

Aside from beverages, Stevia is also used as an alternative sweetener when cooking or baking.

The Health Advantages of Stevia


Stevia is a safe, healthy sugar substitute that can sweeten up food without the negative health effects of refined sugar. It’s also associated with several impressive benefits such as reduced calorie intake, managed blood sugar levels, and minimized risk of cavities.

Additionally, while other sugar substitutes like Aspartame have been linked with cancer, there’s no evidence linking stevia to cancer since it is a natural ingredient.

This means you can add stevia to dishes and drinks without fear that you’re taking too much sugar, or that you’ll get sick a few years down the road.

For coffee lovers, it’s also good to note that locally-made Glorious Blend coffees and instant beverages have Stevia as its natural sweetener. The blend of natural and healthful ingredients make the drink not only refreshing and safe, but also good for one’s overall health.

The Glorious Blend boasts a full line of healthy drinks, including a 7-in-1 healthy coffee mix. This special blend is made with proven medicinal ingredients like Malunggay, Mangosteen, Calcium, Gotu Kola, and sweetened with Sweet & Fit Stevia. What’s even better is that the Glorious Blend 7in1 Coffee is non-acidic and promotes regular bowel movement.

The Glorious line-up also includes the 3-in-1 coffee mix with Stevia; 7-in-1 choco mix; 4-in-1 coffee with Malunggay; 5-in-1 coffee mix with Brown Rice; and the MaxiTrim coffee.

All Glorious Blend beverages use Stevia which has no calories, no carbohydrates, and zero glycemic index. All of their instant drinks will keep you alert and energized throughout the day.

Glorious Blend products are also sourced and processed in the United States. Local farmers, stevia growers, and other agricultural communities are supported by their business. And, when you’ve been avoiding coffee due to health issues like diabetes or hyperacidity, Glorious Blend coffee mixes are here to help. You can indulge in the fragrance and taste of freshly brewed coffee all day long — guilt-free!

You can now drink coffee to improve your health! Isn’t it magnificent?

McDonald’s Philippines remained resilient during the COVID-19 pandemic and is on track to resume operations in 2021

McDonald’s opened its ‘green store’ in U.N. Ave. part of the QSR giant’s commitment to reduce its environmental footprint and source sustainable packaging.

Golden Arches Development Corporation (McDonald’s Philippines), a leading fast service restaurant giant majority owned and run by Chairman & Founder Dr. George T. Yang and President & CEO Kenneth Yang, has carefully navigated the 2020 pandemic through its core commitment to its people and constant pursuit of providing a frictionless customer experience.

Amid the pandemic’s many challenges, McDonald’s was able to exploit its market fundamentals, such as its safe operating culture, solid brand, and community engagement, reinforcing its support for its people (employees and customers) and fortifying its strategic investments prior to 2020 to accelerate business segments such as McDelivery and Drive Thru this year.

A focus on its people

McDonald’s Drive Thru segment has strengthened as it launched its ‘Ride-Thru’ and ‘Park-Order-Pay’ initiatives to champion customer inclusivity amid the lockdown restrictions.

At the onset of the lockdown, McDonald’s was quick to launch the McDonald’s Kindness Kitchen through the Ronald McDonald House Charities, during the enhanced community quarantines by re-purposing the kitchens of its stores that were temporarily closed to prepare the meals of its beneficiaries, especially frontliners who work tirelessly to keep people safe, as well as communities who remain embattled and experience hunger.

Having malasakit ingrained in the company’s values, the QSR giant has served over 460,000 meals to 229 communities, 26 non-government organizations, 133 government agencies, over 250 hospitals, and 61 quarantine centers nationwide to date, and is committed to continue to serve more meals in 2021.

“Our commitment to people has always been embedded in our core values. We understand the significant role we play in ensuring that we support communities in need, especially during the most trying of times,” shares Kenneth Yang.

The company has also allotted the space of the underutilized party rooms for the use of teachers who had difficulties transitioning to distance learning. The opening of over 220 “McClassrooms” in October all over the country with free access to Wi-Fi and McCafé coffee was well received by the public during Teacher’s Month.

Pursuant to its commitment to people, McDonald’s also launched its M Safe program to ensure the safety of its employees, offices and its restaurants in order to serve customers across its different touchpoints safely. It was through the program that the company continued to operate its restaurants safely amidst the quarantine restrictions.

M Safe then became an avenue for the company to demonstrate its commitment to support the government in its bid to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus. M Safe was acknowledged by the government and other external stakeholders particularly for its initiatives, including mass testing for its own front-liners (restaurant managers and crew) and the integration of the IATF-endorsed contact tracing system, Stay Safe, across all stores.

McDonald’s further extended its support to Task Force T3, a consortium of private companies that partner with the government for its test, trace and treat initiatives against COVID-19. McDonald’s actively took part in Task Force T3’s Ingat Angat campaign, the country’s biggest consumer confidence campaign to restart the economy safely.

The QSR giant also announced that it will be providing free COVID-19 vaccines for its employees to help the government accelerate the national vaccination program.

Customer experience through product innovations

With the rising homebound economy and eCommerce, the brand has leveraged its McDelivery channel as a source of growth.

Responding to the impact of COVID-19 to the business, McDonald’s continued its focus on providing relevant innovations and product offerings that would allow a safe and more convenient experience for its customers.

With the rising homebound economy and the exponential growth of eCommerce, the company leveraged its McDelivery channel as a source of growth or leveraged McDelivery, cashless and other technology investments.

McDonald’s has taken this opportunity to scale its food delivery aggregator partnerships with GrabFood and foodpanda, which allowed customers more options to enjoy their favorites conveniently. This has widened the reach and exponentially increased the growth in delivery.

The company also strengthened its Drive Thru segment and championed customer inclusivity through its initiatives like Ride-Thru and Park-Order-Pay, which encourages all sorts of vehicles to experience McDonald’s in their vehicles, on-the-go.

These innovations supported by increasing cashless payment solutions in these segments, allowed McDonald’s Delivery and Drive-Thru services to grow significantly accounting for 60% of its total sales. The company also noted a 28.6% growth in cashless transactions in 2020.

Due to the limitation on public gatherings, events and celebrations were forced to be done at home. The company launched Party-To-Go and Send To Many options, enabling safe celebrations at home. McDonald’s also introduced a wide array of new products to delight its customers such as the McDo Spicy Burger, Spicy McNuggets, shakes, sundae blends and the McSpaghetti platter.

“Our priority has always been to constantly evolve and introduce innovations for our customers, and for them to enhance their safe and frictionless experience across all channels. This continued roll out of our offerings is a strategic investment as we continue to surpass difficulties and thrive during this time of initial recovery,” says President & CEO Yang.

Primed to recover in 2021

With the innovations launched in 2020, the leading QSR giant is optimistic to recover this year from the impact of COVID-19. Amid the continuous difficulties posed by the pandemic, McDonald’s was able to end 2020 with a 655-store base and the opening of 16 new stores, including the largest store in the Philippines, in Capital Town, Pampanga.

With growth between the first and second half of 2020, which carried over to Q1 of 2021, the company is bullish on gearing for recovery this year. Despite the recent reinstatement of the Enhanced Community Quarantine last March, which suspended its dine-in operations among other restrictions, McDonald’s is set to open at least 30 new stores this year.

“As we open new stores during these trying times, we are able to generate much needed job opportunities for more Filipinos and demonstrate our outlook of economic recovery in the near future.” Mr. Kenneth Yang concludes.

Jessy Mendiola keeping her body healthy with the Help of Calcium Cee

CALCIUM Cee kicks off the second quarter of the year with an ambitious campaign focused on physical health and well being, announcing Jessy Mendiola as the brand’s newest and official endorser. Calcium Cee is a daily necessity that nurtures and helps to protect the body with fortified double protection of vitamin C and calcium, two of the most potent nutrients for maintaining a strong and healthy body.

An immune booster and an effective aid against viral infections, vitamin C acts as a strong anti-oxidant that destroys free radicals that causes diseases. Since Calcium Cee is non-acidic and contains alkaline PH levels, it could be taken on an empty stomach and in large doses without the risk of irritation and diarrhea. Also, as it is non-sodium, Calcium Cee does not contribute to the risk of hypertension and heart disease as well as kidney disease.

As one of the industry’s most successful actresses who headlined a consistent string of top-rating primetime TV series and blockbuster movies, Jessy is a passionate advocate of health and wellness as she continues to live a balanced and active lifestyle despite the pandemic as regularly seen on her Vlogs that are viewed by millions of Filipinos.

“After an 8-hour sleep, I start my day with lots of water, a quick workout, and my daily dose of Calcium Cee,” says Jessy. “Though I don’t have a regular diet, I make sure that I eat everything in moderation while having a cleanse to detoxify my body once in a while. Along with Calcium Cee, I also keep my essentials handy every day – face mask, hand sanitizer, and face shield.” 

“Jessy is a certified health buff and she is such an inspiration to a lot of people when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle,” says MayetteAcuña, President of Optimum Marketstrat International Inc. – the official Philippine distributor of Calcium Cee. “We firmly believe that Jessy is the best artist to represent the brand as an ambassadress because she embodies the Filipino ideal that gives much importance to excellent health and safety while working hard with honesty and integrity.” 

Jessy on the other hand is equally ecstatic now that she is a part of the Calcium Cee Family, “I’m very happy that I discovered Calcium Cee as this trusted brand is perfect for my lifestyle. I am not a fan of heavy breakfasts and since Calcium Cee is non-acidic, I could safely take it in the mornings on an empty stomach.” 

“I’m very grateful that I am chosen to represent this amazing product. It’s important to remind others to take Calcium Cee every day. It’s very important to take care of ourselves especially during these days where we need to stay healthy. Calcium Cee is excellent because it also has calcium which is good for our bones. I am honored to represent a product that is truly a non-negotiable daily essential,” add by Jessy.

With the pandemic engulfing people’s lives, it’s never too late to take care of one’s body, no matter how old one is. “Everyone should start today because it’s important to strengthen our immune system if we are to survive and weather this global crisis. With discipline and prayers, I believe that the flattening of the dreaded curve is in the horizon and the day will come that we will all go back to our normal lives and it is important to stay and keep healthy until that day comes,” says a very hopeful Jessy. 

Calcium Cee is available at all Mercury Drug Store, Watsons, All Day RX, Merry Mart, and Alturas Bohol locations nationwide. And for more information, call the Calcium Cee hotline at 09175642233.

Many artists team up in the star-studded “Bagani” music video, including Catriona Gray

A few Filipino musicians from across the country have joined forces to record “Bagani,” the official theme song for the 500th anniversary of the Victory of Mactan and the Philippines’ participation in the world’s first circumnavigation. The music video, which premieres today at 8:00 p.m., shows an all-star performance by a group put together by PhilPop and The National Quincentennial Committee, with Jude Gitamondoc of Kadasig and Jeremy Sarmiento of MinPop.

All-star ensemble

Lending their participation to the special project are award-winning singers, acclaimed musicians, Warner Music Philippines artists, and PhilPop finalists: Noel Cabangon, Bayang Barrios, Catriona Gray, Juris, Adelle Yu, JoemarkTumala, JetzTacsanan, Archie Udaundo, ChudFestejo, Ferdinand Aragon, Anthony Paeldo, Paul Pablo, Reanne Borela, Noah Alejandre, Ian Dumaplin, Angelic Mateo, Abegail Esteban, Kurt Fick, Jewel Villaflores, Kulas Basilonia, Jacky Chang, Kenneth Corvera, Nicole Asensio, Kier Franco, Nino Mas, Fernando Silva, Ava Canaceli, GiarellApolona, Michael Cadoy, Enrique Gallardo, Novie Grace Jayme, Kenneth Reodica, Ed Miraflor Jr., Roel Rostata, Pio Dumayas, Mikhail Cansicio, Mark Armas, Michael Catarina, Juliet Bahala, Paolo Campos, Keiko Necesario, RoxOmilda, Zsaris, Dulce, Leanne Mamonong, Naara Acueza, JJ Pimpinio, Anthony Castillo, Sud Ballacer, Bayang Barrios and Nyoy Volante.

Aside from the appearances of more than 50 artists, who took their time recording and filming themselves in makeshift studios remotely or at home, the music video helmed by Josh Olasiman, also includes various footage from Medical City c/o Kevin Tristan A. Espiritu, and documentary films such as Jose Rizal saLandas ng Paglaya and May Pagasa ang Bantayogni Andres Bonifacio.

Commissioned by The National Quincentennial Committee (NQC) to give its audience a feeling of hope and optimism, the song was written and composed by Roel Rostata, arranged and produced by Jungee Marcelo, with Visayan lyrics in the chorus by Jude Gitamondoc.

Honoring solidarity and bayanihan spirit during tough times


According to its chief songwriter, Roel Rostata the track was written as a response to the growing challenges that the Filipino people are experiencing during the time of the pandemic, and how important it is repurpose music as a vessel to champion resiliency and bayanihan spirit. “There’s no other way to rise above and make it through this pandemic other than working together,” Rostata shares in a statement. “Bagani” encourages the listeners to turn fears and doubts to hope and healing, to manifest dreams into reality and to embrace victory. The song also encourages listeners to be part of the solution despite all the negativity and problems.”

“Bagani” is a by-product of PhilPop Bootcamp 2019, an initiative that aims to empower the next generations of contemporary Filipino singer-songwriters. PhilPop Executive Director Dinah Remolacio shares that the song was recorded for the Quincentennial celebration, but its inherent meaning has expanded into honoring our collective optimism and teamwork to rebuild the nation, and bring to light stories of optimism and resilience. “Eventually, the song became larger than what it was originally intended for,” Remolacio shares.“It triggers a strong commitment to the past and our future. It evokes strength and at the same time— solidarity.”

The music video marks the collaboration between NQC and PhilPop to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Victory of Mactan in 2021 as part of the numerous virtual celebrations commemorating a significant milestone in Philippine and global history.

The country’s premier songwriting competition will act as the screening committee for the official theme song, as well as co-producing its official music video with Warner Music Philippines, as part of the collaboration agreement.

The official music video of “Bagani” is out now.

As part of its continuing dedication to security, TikTok has earned ISO 27001 certification

The community’s protection, security, and privacy are TikTok’s top priorities. They are constantly working to improve and advance our security efforts in order to keep the internet as a place for self-expression, innovation, and joy safe and secure.

The ISO certification is one of the most widely accepted information security standards, demonstrating our commitment to safeguarding our global society through individuals, processes, and technology.

A critical part in building a world class global security organization includes testing their defenses by collaborating with external partners. TikTok continues to welcome security, privacy, and policy experts to review their code and algorithm at TikTok’s Transparency and Accountability Center.  During the ISO certification process, independent third party auditors performed a series of rigorous checks to confirm TikTok’s global security, risk, and controls operations meet the highest standards. Core to this was evaluating how they protect their platform’s infrastructure, development, operations, and services, including:

  • Demonstrating evidence of implementing and maintaining an effective Information Security Management System (ISMS) to safeguard data
  • Validating a range of security controls to show TikTok’s alignment with security best practices
  • Cross-functional collaboration across security, IT, legal, privacy, and HR teams to build a culture of security awareness
