Hello Sweeties,

As we get older, we need to focus more on our health above anything else. It came as a surprise to me that although I am out and about all day and most mornings under the sun, I have Vitamin D deficiency.

Vitamin D Deficiency is strongly linked to Chronic Diseases such as Cancer, Heart Failure, Diabetes, etc.

Studies how that 36 of our organs and tissues are regulated by Vitamin D, including our heart, lungs, brain, and bones.  Sadly not all get the sufficient Vitamin D requirement they need.

According to a study conducted by Hi-Precision Diagnostics on  8200 Filipinos from key cities, 7 out of 10 Filipinos are Vitamin D Deficient.

Hello Sweeties,

As a Mom I always want what is best for my two beasties.  Whenever one of them gets sick we always end up going to our family pediatrician. She has always prescribed medicines from Unilab.  She assured me that all products from this lab are tried tested for quality and they are committed to give the highest quality products. Since my children are all teenagers, and really quite healthy, I trust my pediatrician.

When the Mommy Bloggers were invited to visit the Amherst Laboratories, I jumped at the chance. Unilab has been in the Pharmaceutical Business for more than 60 years. They are a trusted health care partner.
