An Orange or Vitamin C pill?

I am pretty sure everyone wants to be healthy. To have good health, one of the keys is to have a good immune system. But can a good immune system be built from taking vitamin pills? Or it should be derived from taking a food that is wholesome?

The key to a healthy body is BALANCE. Orange has more just vitamin C. It also contains calcium, dietary fiber, vitamin B6, phytonutrients, and many other nutrients that have yet to be discovered. Replenishing just vitamin C in high concentrations, despite its water-soluble form, may still cause an imbalance in the body. Side effects include heartburn, bloating, insomnia, skin flushing, fatigue, and kidney stones.

Vitamin C in oral form can also interact with various medications such as the heart disease medications.

The best gift for Mother’s Day

Parents’ good health is the children’s best asset. Not sure if you feel the same. My dad left us when I was around 23 and he was 55. When he was around, the only gift I can think of for him was a massage chair. Tens of years have passed, my mom is now 76. Looking back, I know the best thing I have given my mom over the years is E.Excel products. At the current age of 76, she is very mobile, goes anywhere she wants and is independent. Her medical expenses are almost negligible. Ain’t all these the best gifts for us, the children?

The very first product my mom took is <ART>, when she was around 58. Like most elderly in their 50s who begin to experience knee pain. I got her on <ART> and it is currently one product that she believes so strongly about and does not want to stop taking. These days when people begin to walk with a limp at early 50s, she can still run for buses in her 70sπŸ˜….

<Nutrifresh> and <Evernew Orange> have also helped her long-term constipation problem. She is also on <Vision>, <Circle>, <Refresh>, <Encore>, <Millennium> and <Nutriact>. Every time when she has her eyes checked at GP, she passes with flying colors. When most of her peers went through cataract-removal surgery, she does not need to.

With the launch of <toThink> a few years back, immediately I want her to have it after studying the ingredients.

<toThink> contains very high concentration of American Ginseng and Lion Mane Mushroom. I am pretty sure no one can find such high concentration of american ginseng in another product brand, at this pricing.

After reading various literature on American ginseng, I definitely want my mom to have it! Vitality, prevent dementia, improves immunity, reduces flu and cold occurrences, reduces inflammation, and mental alertness. I told myself this is a must-have for her, at her age. And I always emphasised to her to finish one pack in less than three days for best results. I am glad she listens πŸ™‚

I brought her for half yearly regular GP checkup and they will test her memory. And I always tell the doctors her memory is better than mine lol. Recently the doctor said, yes she could tell her memory is good. haha

So you see, ain’t the products investment all well worth it?

The launch of PlusO2 Scalp Balance

Today is the official launch for E.Excel PlusO2 Scalp balance. A product that many will look forward to use it! Because these days many people are victims of hair loss 😩

Plenty of reasons for hair loss… late nights, poor nutrients in-take, infections, medical conditions, scalp microbiome imbalance, and poor quality shampoos.

PlusO2 Scalp Balance uses perflurocarbons (PFCs) as the key ingredients to deliver air capsules to our hair follicles for healthier and shiny hair! Our scalp is skin and therefore it needs oxygen too! (Thickest skin on our body πŸ˜‚)

Protecting our ‘crown’ requires effort. But it deserves our effort as it can really make a big difference to how young a person can look, and how a person can look.

Our scalp ages six times faster than the skin on our face. As it ages, hair growth will be thinner. So we have to take care of our scalp early with regular scalp spa care!

The Vegan “Chicken Soup” !

Yes, I know it is hard to imagine that an all plant-based ingredient can deliver the taste of a chicken soup πŸ˜… So this goes to show how much effort the company’s R&D has put in on the ingredients formulation lol.

I usually use Soup de EExcel to whip out a simple lunch. I will boil my udon/mee hoon/mee sua with added ingredients that I like, eg. tofu, seaweed, mushrooms, in around 300ml of water. Once they are boiled, I pour them into the serving bowl, stir in a packet of soup de. That’s all! No other condiments are needed, hehe. A person’s portion.

Soup de contains Soybean, white radish, carrot, pear, broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprout, radish leaf, spinach, cauliflower, and green bell pepper. More than 10 different types of ingredients! So even if I am just cooking my plain noodles with soup de, I am already taking in these ingredients in good concentration πŸ˜‰ This is where I get my plant-based protein too!

A Meal at Lotus Vegetarian

I must say this is one of my favourite vegetarian restaurants. It has a nice ambience where you can enjoy nice food with family and friends.

(Pardon me for the not so nice photos that I have taken. I am not very good at taking dishes and most of the time when the dishes arrived, before thinking of the camera, part of the dishes are already inside my stomach lol)

Prawns with chilli crab sauce
Nice dish!
Fried Buttered Abalone Mushrooms
Fried Thai-Styled Fish – One of the dishes that I will recommend

I also like their tim sum, and fried mee siam. The next time I would like to try their laksa πŸ˜›

About Myself…

Hi, my name is Ai.

I studied Electronics and Computer Engineering as a student and picked up The Specialist Diploma in Nutrition and Exercise Science with Singapore Polytechnic as an adult.

E.Excel has been my full-time career for the past 15 years and adding on to the plate is eLead Global for the last 5 years. Both E.Excel and eLead Global are by the same Founder – Dr. Jau-Fei Chen.

Before E.Excel, I had a 9-to-5 job for about eight years. I had also tried my hands at traditional business before venturing into E.Excel Network Marketing. After consuming the products for a few months and gaining an understanding on the Business Structure, I have to say that I never look back again!

Sharing is my passion, and being able to share and inspire, helping and enrich another’s person life, while gaining self-fulfillment is what I find an ideal career!

I am very thankful to have been introduced to Nutritional Immunology products and be able to partner with renowned Scientist in a reliable, successful and well-established company. All my hard work is rewarded, and now I have more time for my family, friends, and volunteering to return back to society.

I am also a vegetarian and I love going to different places to try different vegetarian foods with friends. I am not born vegetarian, but it is definitely one of the best decisions I have made, other than choosing this career (E.Excel/eLead).

I hope I can update this blog as often as I can, and hope the information that I have shared will be of use to you. Occasionally, I will share interesting vegetarian foods I have come across too. Good things are to be shared!

The last two months were crazy… with the rise of Omicron cases, I had to do several urgent deliveries of NI products. But the rewarding part was, my friends recovered quickly and did not really suffer from long-covid or lingering after-covid symptoms like cough, and fatigue. Now the pandemic here seems to be cooling down, I can find more time to update my blog too. You may also drop me a chat for inquiries. Cheers!

CNY Day 7. E.Excel Offices opens…

So thankful that the company is able to maintain its supply of Millennium and Nutriact during this crucial period – Covid pandemic.

Be it for prevention or after care, they are much needed products. Those who fell victims to the virus, they do see much faster recovery – usually within 3 days, they can be tested negative. For myself, I rely on all these for prevention due to the nature of my work and the different people I need to meet.

The only way to beat the viruses and their mutations is to ensure that our immune system is stronger than them!

Tea

A tea that nicely contains Green Tea leaf, Jasmine Flower, Ginseng, and Chrysanthemum Flower.

Green tea contains caffeine, yet it also provides many health benefits due to its abundance of polyphenols / flavonoids which can delay signs of aging, prevent cancer, and fights inflammation.

With Triflora, we can enjoy the benefits of green teas leaves without the caffeine as Triflora’s green tea leaves are specially harvested in season when the caffeine levels are at its lowest (almost negligible).

Triflora nice blend of leaves and flowers aid the removal of waste and toxins from the body, dispels heat, calm the senses, soothe the nerves and helps ward off anxiety. Ginseng is rich in many nutrients including vitamins A, E, Bs, calcium, iron and potassium. The inclusion of Ginseng enhances the refreshing effects on the body and helps to strengthen the immune system.

I like Triflora for how it is able to keep me energize me when I am working in front of the computer the whole day. Not to mention it can keep me hydrated πŸ˜€

Oh, it can also prevent headaches, migraines, menses flu, accordingly to many.

How about decaffeinated tea? According to some experts, most decaffeinated tea has close to 70% of the polyphenols stripped off and some of the most common decaffeination methods can leave trace amounts of dangerous chemicals on the tea leaves.

Nutrifresh and Refresh Mix!

I don’t usually mix powder products together to drink… So that I can enjoy each of the beverages as they are 😍 and at the same time this will ensure that I drink ample water. Except for some products which I think they taste definitely much better with a mix!

Not many, but one of which is Refresh 🀭 It tastes so nice with Nutrifresh πŸ˜‹.

Nutrifresh provides the basic nutrients needed for a day and Refresh for healthy kidneys!

Nutrifresh is an important beverage for my start of the day. Because it contains more than 13 different types of fruits and veggies in a sachet, it provides me the basic nutrients for the day. The various real food components contain all the basic needed minerals, vitamins, fiber, protein, calcium, phytochemicals for the body.

Nutrifresh ingredients at just S$1.85 per day

Refresh nourishes our kidneys. According to Ministry of Health, kidney failure is a growing disease in Singapore. National Kidney Foundation (NKF) statistics revealed that there are about five new kidney failure patients a day and one new dialysis patient every five hours πŸ™

Living in the current era where most foods are heavily processed and added with unknown additives, preservatives, high sodium and lacking of real nutrients, these definitely will cause a strain to our filter organs – the kidneys.

Refresh ingredients

For me, I definitely go for prevention at just 75cents a day πŸ™‚

Should we be taking Probiotics Supplements?

The body requires a diverse population of friendly gut bacteria. They can help us to improve our digestion and relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

However probiotics found in supplements and some drinks/foods contain only a few different strains of bacteria. Dietary Fiber on the other hand, has a direct impact on constipation and digestion. It can help stools move along more quickly and dietary fiber feeds our friendly gut bacteria to increase in number and kind.

We can obtain fiber from vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes.

The table below gives a good illustration of Probiotics vs Dietary Fiber.
