ACCORDING to Eun Seong Hwang of the Department of Life Science, University of Seoul, in a study published in Pharmacoepigenetics (2019), Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) levels in the body deplete with aging, and it is associated with downregation of energy production in mitochondria, oxidative stress, DNA damage, cognitive impairment, and inflammatory conditions.
Filipino health and wellness brand Entrepro offers products such as supplements, body butter, facial serum, and soap for those who want more natural alternatives to what are available in the market right now. Nicotinamide mononucleotide is at the heart of the EntrePro product line.
“NMN is a molecule substrate that naturally occurs in all life forms. It’s supplied to the body through the diet. It is the precursor of the essential molecule nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide [NAD+]. Supplementation with NMN is meant to increase NAD+ levels in cells,” said Dr. Ed Santos, a medical expert at EntrePro.
As people get older, NAD+ levels decrease, leading to energy deficiency, DNA damage, and other aging-related issues. “This depletion becomes more apparent between the ages of 40 to 45 and the goal of NMN supplementation is to boost NAD+ levels, offering benefits like cellular anti-aging, improved heart and brain function, enhanced physical performance, better sleep quality, and improved skin health,” said Santos.
EntrePro has NMN in oral capsule form, with each capsule containing 450mg. Santos recommended taking NMN on an empty stomach, one hour before breakfast.
“The recommended dosage is between 250 mg to 500 mg per day,” he said.
Mike Atayde, CEO and head of product development at Orich Food and Beverages, is a key figure in the story of EntrePro. “Word-of-mouth marketing, the first form of marketing and selling, is the new normal and will be here for the rest of time because of all the social media platforms now and coming in the future. EntrePro is all about word-of-mouth marketing and selling, sharing experiences from good quality and natural products. It’s a need in today’s generation of shoppers. We aim to be relevant and participatory in this new normal.”
EntrePro’s mission, said Atayde, “is to give everyone the opportunity to become entrepreneurs by providing them the knowledge and digital tools needed to do so.”
Meanwhile, the company’s vision is to create a self-sustaining ecosystem where consumers can meet their needs through EntrePro’s e-commerce site, with entrepreneur partners driving product ideas and growth.
“With an established self-sustaining ecosystem of consumers buying their every need through our e-commerce site, our entrepreneur partners are driving the growth in product ideas as we help them commercialize through EntrePro. Other types of businesses are continuously partnering with us, extending perks to our affiliates,” said Atayde.
EntrePro stands out for its commitment to health and affordability, as well as its unique business model.
According to Atayde, “We want people to benefit from the use of our products. They truly have substance, they have true health benefits, and we intend to keep all our products affordable. Our e-commerce component makes our business model unique because our partners can assign up to five resellers who don’t need to invest anything except time. No inventory cost, no warehousing and logistics cost. We handle this all for them. All they have to do is learn about the products, market, sell, and through a link they can monitor how they are doing.”
In development are unique beverages addressing modern health concerns, showcasing EntrePro’s continuous innovation. “They’re all natural; perfect for the whole family. Try the most basic, our soap, and let us know how you feel. We will be coming out with some unique beverages that address our modern health concerns.”
NO MORE SORE THROAT
ABOUT a month ago, I suffered from the worst cough of my life. It wasn’t Covid-19 and it wasn’t a bacterial infection. It was just a virus. What I learned from my doctor is that coughing is a reflex and not an illness in itself.
Now that the hectic holiday season is upon us, I’m scared of getting sick again. I’m even more scared of getting another cough and going through what I went through recently. When I have a cough, I have a stack of lozenges to help soothe an irritated throat.
Strepsils is the trusted Filipino brand when it comes to sore
throat. These medicated lozenges help provide relief in as fast as 60 seconds up to two hours. These medicated lozenges pack a punch with active ingre-dients: Amylme-tacresol and 2, 4-dichlorobenzyl alcohol. They are clinically proven to relieve pain and soothe the throat.
You can get Strepsils at leading drugstores nationwide.
