Health Benefits of Glutathione - More Than Just Whitening!

You've probably seen a lot of Glutathione products in the market over the past years, but did you know that it offers a lot more benefits than whitening? The famous Glutathione, aka "the master antioxidant," is actually the one the body relies on to clean up critical toxins. In short, we need this to stay healthy and prevent aging, cancer, heart disease, dementia, and other illnesses.

Here are some of Glutathione's notable benefits:

  • Increases energy
  • Slows down aging process
  • Reduces muscle and joint discomfort
  • Strengthens immune system
  • Detoxifies the liver and cells
  • Improves mental focus and clarify
  • Improves quality of sleep
  • Reduces the effects of stress
  • Improves the skin
  • Athletic performance and recovery


Even our body produces its own glutathione, but there are several factors that trigger its depletion. It includes stress, poor diet, pollution, medications, trauma, aging, infections, and radiation - pretty much what we go through on the daily, right? Given this, isn't it time to consider taking in supplements from a trusted brand to help boost the body's natural ability to synthesize glutathione?


Choosing the Right Glutathione Supplement

Buying glutathione supplements can be really tricky; you'll need to look closely at the ingredient list to ensure you are picking the best one. If I were to recommend, pick the one with L-Glutathione.

Most brands offer just "glutathione" and are probably using the non-reduced form which yields little to no benefit according to studies. On the other hand, there is L-Glutathione or "Reduced Glutathione," and it is the most bioavailable - meaning the body will readily absorb them and effectively boost glutathione levels.


The Brand to Trust

Snow Caps Premium 500mg Glutathione capsule contains 500mg of premium L-Glutathione plus Alpha Lipolic Acid (100mg) and Vit C (100mg). When you start taking this, you won't only enjoy all the benefits mentioned above, you'll also get to whiten your skin in less than 6 weeks! Snow Caps whitening process works in the metabolism of Melanin by reversing the dark melanin pigments into light pigments and reduces melanocytes, which produces melanin.


Officially a convert! I just started taking in Snow Caps because of all the great health benefits - whitening is just a mere side effect! ;) Even a good friend of mine pops Snow Caps daily, and she doesn't get any hangover after a full night of drinking. Hahaha!

Try Snow Caps as early as you can!

Siesta Beach Retreat, La Union

La Union will always be my safe space. I've been here for several times already and I won't ever get tired of this place. It's more than just a surf town for me - LU gives me healing and serenity every single visit. I was actually here two months ago - all alone, at my lowest point, but just seeing the waves before me calmed my heart. Fast forward to the first Monday of February, I'm back again but in a happier state.




Spontaneous and impulsive - my best friends and I drove to La Union for a quick beach break. We stayed at Siesta Beach Retreat, a beach-front haven inside Urbiz Garden (beside Flotsam & Jetsam). Whenever I feel the need to unwind, I prefer staying at this side of La Union - still at San Juan but quite a long walk from the main restaurants and other resorts.


This newly-opened home has Bamboo Treehouse fan rooms, with the view of the ocean as soon as you step out.


Yna and I stayed at the Twin Bed Room (Php2,000.00). It includes two (2) beds, fluffy pillows, fleece blankets (my favorite!), towels, and a kulambo!


I'm really picky when it comes to beds, so I'm pleasantly surprised with the quality of beds Siesta Beach Retreat has. Slept like a baby, my friends had a hard time waking me up. Lol


There are also nice hooks where you can hang your swimwear/clothes!


King had the Full Bed Room (Php2,000.00) and I think 2 people can share in here. Same inclusions, but with a king-sized bed.


Siesta Beach Retreat also has a Solo Room (Php1,000.00) and Tent Pitching (Php600.00/guest). Best part? Booking here includes 1 free yoga pass per person and access to their pool!

To be honest, their rates are insanely affordable, given that you have a lovely beach front spot.


Clean shower and toilet rooms ❤


Siesta Beach Retreat also has this common patio exclusive for guests. Super cozy!


You can also opt to chill here and stare at the ocean.


Yoga area! I heard they have Vinsaya sessions every Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. You can also book a private class, just leave a message at @duyanyoga on Instagram or contact 0915 513 8333.


DUYAN under the tree, y'all! How can you not fall in love with Siesta Beach Retreat?


To make a reservation, just slide into Siesta Beach Retreat's Instagram DM or message them on Facebook. Pro tip: they prioritize these over phone calls! ;)

Another nice thing about Siesta is that they can arrange a trip to Tangadan Falls and other tourist spots in La Union, too! We didn't avail of this since we really just wanted to swim and lounge, but definitely going back next time to try those side trips out!


Swim break!


Elyu staples! El Union and Sabong Fried Chicken ❤ We also had our dose of grilled food for dinner at Beach Bumbeque (inside Beach Bum Food Park).


LU has one of the best sunset views. Imagine this while your favorite playlist's on full blast, and you hear the waves crashing... grabe ❤

We spent the rest of the night drinking wine, eating chips, and playing Nintendo Switch. Simple moments like this make my heart flutter.


MY FAVORITE! Makai Bowls! I'm in love with their Amianan (dragon fruit smoothie bowl) but it wasn't available that time, so I got Beach Break instead. SOLID PA RIN!


Haaay, my constants! With these two, I know I'll never be alone. Really lucky to have best friends like them.

I love you, Aleenski and Kingking!


Thank you, Siesta Beach Retreat, for such an amazing experience! Certainly coming back!

Y'all better book with them as soon as you can!

Fisher Mall Quezon Avenue | Anniversary Sale

North girl forever! I think I'm really lucky because our house is conveniently located near malls and hangout spots in Quezon City. Happy we're only 5 to 10 minutes away from Fisher Mall Quezon Avenue, because they definitely drop the lowest deals in every mall-wide sale!

I'm always here to do grocery shopping, but I haven't really been to the whole mall. Glad I got to tour around Fisher Mall with my blog sisters yesterday to see what they've got for shoppers for their anniversary sale.


Department Store


Enjoy your retail therapy for up to 80% OFF here! Aside from the basics, you'll also spot a lot of stylish pieces especially from Fisher Mall's own fashion brands.


My favorite's their shoe section! In all fairness, District (their home brand for shoes and bags) has a lot of great and trendy designs - Aisa and I were really tempted to get all that we can.


Best part - they're all super affordable!


Tops, dresses, and jumpsuits in all prints and patterns! Perfect for summer ❤


Sunnies for only Php299.75?! Wow!


Kids Section


Home and Furniture


Grabe, even their Masflex pots and pans seem cheaper here!

Fisher Supermarket


My folks are crazy about Fisher Mall's grocery price drops! They offer a lot of bundles and buy 1 take 1 deals, whether for local or imported goods!


Another reason why I love this supermarket is that they have really fresh seafood, meat, and produce!


Paluto Area is where you choose your catch, kind of cooking method, sauces, add ons, and have them served to you in a nice dining area inside the grocery.

Fisher Mall is more than a shopping destination. It's also an entertainment and lifestyle hub.

Fisher Box Office


Their movie house features a 1920s inspired lobby, five state-of-the-art high definition digital cinemas, and a top-notch VIP Cinema equipped with lazy boy chairs.


Unlimited popcorn + lazy boy chairs + blankets = SOLID!

They also have a pod for kids (or kids at heart) inside the VIP Cinema!


Zoltar


In case you didn't know, only two (2) Zoltar booths are available in the Philippines. I heard you even need to get a license before acquiring this! Fisher Mall has one, and we tried it out! For only Php20.00 (4 new Php5 coins), you can have your fortunes predicted by Zoltar.


Sneaker Arcade outside Pumped Up Kicks


Playland


Another stop that we enjoyed: carousel and arcade games!


Fitness Center


Chapel


Dining


Aside from the restaurants around the mall, they also have an artsy and spacious food court.
