Are you Vitamin D deficient? Unilab's FORTI-D Media Launch


Thrilled and thankful to be part of the exciting media launch of UNILAB's newest health supplement, FORTI-D (Colecalciferol). It was held at Bar One, Holiday Inn Hotel, Ortigas Pasig City. And below were my few shocking realizations: 

1. Vitamin D is not really a vitamin. This substance just stimulates/ activates the body's own natural ability to produce Vitamin D, which is essential for calcium absorption.

2. The best time to soak up the sun and activate your body's natural ability to generate Vitamin D is during noontime. Yes, when the sun is at its hottest, and the exact same time we all avoid (in order to avoid Migraines and Skin Cancer!) 

3. Light-skinned people can generate Vitamin D better than those with darker skin. Given that, in the free blood testing, I learned that I am Vitamin D Deficient! And you may be, too! Thank God for FORTI-D, the answer to hard-working, Vitamin D deficient people like you and me! 

Glad to meet a lot of blogger friends including Enzo, of Please click on his blog too! He is one of the most well-regarded bloggers in the country! 

Photo above shows me thinking, "Hey no fair! My hosting contract did not include mandatory Vitamin D testing through blood-letting with Photo Op!" Photo below shows me happy after the lovely nurse finally got some blood samples... wasn't as bad as I thought! I didn't faint after all...    

Thank you Forti-D for letting me take part of such a fabulous, empowering and eye-opening affair! 

D can stand for Deficiency, Downfall, Desperation, Delusion. But it can also be the first letter of the words, DREAM, DRIVE, DETERMINATION, DILIGENCE, DESTINY. 

It all depends on how we perceive things, and how we perceive things is how we will turn out to be. Choose your visions well, for this is the mold of the future, the shape of things to come.

As for me, I may thrive in a challenging world (plus I am vitamin D deficient and sickly, LOL) but my determination and drive in the write direction founded on my devotion and faith in God, will see me through.
