Sarah Geronimo Speaks Up For Kamillosan M Spray

Your voice plays an integral part in your everyday activities. However, it is inevitable that your lifestyle could take its toll on your voice, like when you get sore throat.
Sore throat is normally caused by viruses or bacteria. That’s why sometimes beyond just irritation or itchiness, you feel pain in swallowing and swelling.
Several other things can cause sore throat. In a tropical country like the Philippines, there are different factors that can take a toll on your system. Changes in temperature and weather can affect your throat. Other factors of sore throat are also airborne such as outdoor pollution, allergens in the air, smoking cigarettes, and second-hand smoking. Excessive and forceful usage of your voice can also cause muscle strain.   


Presenting Kamillosan M Spray – a clinically proven all-natural sore throat spray solution. It contains 8 active ingredients that effectively soothe and relieve sore throat.
These 8 ingredients (Chamomile extract, Methyl salicylate, Peppermint oil, Sage oil, Anise oil, dwarf pine needle oil, Bergamot oil, Cineol) – work together in fighting and treating sore throat. Its main ingredient, Chamomile, acts as an anti-inflammatory agent to reduce pain, swelling, and redness. Combined with the anti-bacterial effects of essential oils such as Peppermint, Sage, and Bergamot, Kamillosan M is highly suited for sore throat relief.



The natural ingredients also lend to the minty fresh sweet aftertaste, unlike the other medicinal throat sprays in the market today.
Kamillosan M Spray is from A. Menarini Philippines, which belongs to one of the largest Italian biopharmaecutical groups, Menarini.
Last April 21, 2017, Kamillosan launched its latest campaign with a new endorser at Discovery Primera. This was also the venue where Kamillosan launched its Speak Up advocacy – in the hopes of making the brand mean more to the market beyond just providing relief from sore throat.
While waiting for the event to start, guests were requested to participate in the Kamillosan video booth, and record their answers to the question, “How do you encourage people with the power of your voice?” These videos were then shown at the end of the program and uploaded on the brand’s official Facebook page, Kamillosan PH.
The actual event kicked off with a brief welcome and introduction from A. Menarini Philippines’ General Manager, Ninia Torres. This was followed by an overview on sore throat by Dra. Clarissa Fortuna, supported by a product discussion from the brand’s medical manager, Dr. Gabby Santos.
But the voice that got everyone speaking up was Kamillosan’s newest endorser – Sarah Geronimo. She charmed everyone in her grand entrance as she powerfully sang and captured hearts, as she always does. Sarah also shared her own singing journey which highlighted how she learned to be an inspiration and motivation to others by power of voice and positivity – making her the perfect fit for Kamillosan’s Speak Up campaign.
“The essence of our campaign is to really encourage people to speak up with the help of Kamillosan. Just like Sarah, we hope to inspire people to pursue their passion without any hindrance along the way, especially sore throat,” shared Patty Nuqui, Marketing Director of Kamillosan.
“We are truly proud and delighted to have this opportunity to not just introduce a product we support and believe in, but to have Kamillosan take the higher ground and mean more to people than just a product for sore throat,” A. Menarini Philippines’ General Manager, Ninia Torres, added.
The event ended on a high note, with some of the guests creating cheers that captured the essence of Kamillosan and the Speak Up campaign.
To know more about Kamillosan, visit www.kamillosan.ph and like Kamillosan PH on Facebook.  Kamillosan is available in all leading drugstores nationwide at Php428.00 SRP. A 15mL bottle of Kamillosan is good for 104 sprays.

Sangobion Holds Biggest Blood Health Event For New Campaign

This year is shaping up to be a big one for anemia-fighting iron supplement, Sangobion IRON+ (Ferrous gluconate+vitamins & minerals).
After successful years of helping Filipinos overcome iron deficiency
anemia, it recently launched another large-scale campaign featuring its long-time ambassador, Sarah Geronimo. Held at the SM Mall of Asia
Music Hall, this record-breaking blood health event, back-to-back with a star-studded concert, was rightfully called “Sulong Dugong Pinoy Blood Health Event.”

The event was an avenue for Filipinos from all over to have their blood checked, in line with Sangobion’s goal of transforming the nation with healthy blood, one person at a time.

Sangobion Sulong Dugong Pinoy is part of Merck Consumer Health’s (maker of Sangobion) WE100 initiative. This aims to help prepare society for a new era of people who live to a hundred years. It is rooted on the belief that living more years should also mean living a life that is healthy and fulfilling. This is the vision for all generations. By offering quality products, providing activities, and
holding events such as Sulong Dugong Pinoy, Merck strives to measure up to the WE100 objective of helping society live 100 years.


In the words of Ming Arroyo-Cunanan, Merck Head of Marketing, “The goal is to really push for the importance of having healthy, anemia-free blood. We believe that if every Filipino realizes the power of having healthy blood, then we will be able to take significant steps toward the rise of our nation.”

The MOA Music Hall was jam-packed with attendees of all ages wanting to get their blood checked. Sangobion conducted blood screenings to help people determine if they are at risk of anemia and also gave free consultations. With the support of the Philippine Red Cross, all was well and properly implemented. Pre-show activities included both educational and fun games that everyone enjoyed. Hosted by the lovely Jaimie Fournier, these really got the crowd pumped.


The main event was a visually satisfying concert that filled the hall with great music. Squeals and shrieks conquered the venue as pop newcomers The Juans opened the show. Legendary Pinoy rock band The Dawn took the stage after, performing their hits plus a cover of U2’s Beautiful Day. Of course, it would not have been a trademark The Dawn performance without the crowd favorite, “Salamat” as part of their set.



It was no surprise that headliner Sarah Geronimo slayed her performance, singing and grooving to her songs in true pop superstar fashion. The excited audience also cheered at the premiere of the Sangobion Sulong Dugong Pinoy Video, and the Pop star Princess’ live rendition of the campaign anthem. (Watch TVC here: http://bit.ly/SDPManifesto)


The incredible night ended with a pledge to fight anemia. Sarah thanked everyone at the event and talked about the campaign and its impact on her. “Sulong Dugong Pinoy taught me that change really begins within each of us. Iba po talaga kapag healthy ang blood, mas marami kang pwedeng magawa at nare-realize mo ang potential mo na makatulong sa pagsulong nating lahat.”

Leaving the audience inspired and genuinely empowered, the Sangobion Sulong Dugong Pinoy Blood Health Event has surely sparked a positive change not only in the blood of each individual, but in the Filipino spirit.

Sangobion Sulong Dugong Pinoy Healthy Blood For A Better Philippines

We usually get tired, feels weak, and becomes restless once in a while. But, for people with anemia, these are more or less what they experience every day. When one suffers from anemia, he or she gets tired easily from working, feels dizzy for no reason, and is generally overcome by fatigue.

Sangobion IRON+ (Ferrous Gluconate+Vitamins & Minerals) has always been serious about fighting iron deficiency anemia. To accomplish this, Sangobion is launching a new campaign, Sulong Dugong Pinoy.


Dr. Corazon Zaida N. Gamilla, University of Sto. Tomas Hospital’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology chairman, who discussed the importance of healthy blood in supporting the functions of the body, the prevalence of anemia, its symptoms, and ways to prevent and treat it. 


Also present was Dr. Christie Monina Nalupta – Director of the Philippine Red Cross - National Blood Services, who graced the event to support Sangobion’s vision of a healthy blood nation.

Meanwhile, the Marketing Director of Merck (makers of Sangobion IRON+), Ming Arroyo-Cunanan, focused on the brand’s relevance and big plans.


“We have been helping men and women from across the country fight anemia with Sangobion, and I’m happy to say that we’ve been successful. That’s why we think that now is the time to start elevating the brand’s purpose. It’s more than just treating anemia, it’s about maintaining healthy blood to empower every Filipino. Our vision is a blood-healthy Philippines.” Cunanan said of Sangobion’s plans this year. Singer and actress Sarah Geronimo, who has been part of the Sangobion family for two years now was also there. 

Check out the teaser for the new Sangobion TVC below:



“There really are a lot of amazing things coming for Sangobion.” Sarah enthusiastically told the crowd. “I’m inviting everyone to join us sa Saturday, April 8 po, at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall for the Sulong Dugong Pinoy Blood Health Event sponsored by Sangobion of course, and supported po ng Philippine Red Cross.” Major activities like the official TVC premiere will take place, all to kickstart the Sangobion Sulong Dugong Pinoy campaign.

National Geographic Earth Day Run 2017 In Celebration Of Environmental Advocacy For 8 Years

On April 23, 2017 marks another of raising the public’s consciousness about environmental issues and health and fitness for National Geographic, which celebrates its eighth straight year of holding Earth Day Run. Presented by the channel and its partners Cherifer Premium and World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF), Earth Day Run 2017 aims to continue the tradition of being one of the biggest running events in the country, expecting scores of running enthusiasts and Eco Warriors to register and run for the environment. The event will be held not only in Manila but simultaneously in the cities of Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore and Taichung, an initiative that was adopted last year and effectively spread the vision and advocacy of Earth Day Run across Asia.

At Earth Day Run 2017, National Geographic will be celebrating eight years of social awareness through fitness with special program features using the hashtag #8withEDR. With the hopes of mobilizing all the Eco Warriors of previous Earth Day Runs, this year’s event welcomes all previously registered participants with VIP treatment and special loyalty perks to be enjoyed on the day of the run. Participants from previous Earth Day Runs will be given priority placement in front of the starting line at the beginning of the race and can claim their loot bags and finisher shirt at a special express booth. They can also make use of a special warm-up and cool down tent before and after the race to condition themselves and recover in comfort.



This year’s new participants can also join in the celebrations for Earth Day Run’s eighth anniversary by visiting the 8 Years of EDR Gallery at the race village and learning about what the event has accomplished over the years, including the environmental and social initiatives it has benefited with the help of its registered runners. Visitors to the gallery will learn how their participation at Earth Day Run has made a significant impact on certain communities in the Philippines as well as how their actions as individuals can affect the environment.





Earth Day Run 2017 in Manila will be held at the SM Mall of Asia grounds, where participants can join 5K, 10K, 21K and 42K categories. The event encourages and welcomes all types of Eco Warriors to take part, from fun-runners of all ages to the serious marathon runners who regularly compete. This year, Earth Day Run will also be sporting new features for its runners. As a special treat, all race kits will come with LED shoelaces, serving as a badge of pride and as a safety precaution for Eco Warriors running at night or before sunrise. Prizes will also be given to costumed runners who showcase their creativity by coming in their best ensemble made from recycled materials. Finally, to make each Eco Warrior’s voice heard in this run for the Earth, advocacy banners will be hanging above the finish line so that each runner can grab them as they cross to make a shout-out for the environment, keep as a souvenir, and use for all their post-run selfies to amplify the message of acting now to save the environment.

Last year, Earth Day Run participants ran to benefit such causes as saving the Irawaddy dolphins at the Malampaya Sound Research and Conservation Project in Palawan; giving the Earth Hour or “Gift of Life” village in Monreal, Masbate sustainable solutions that reduce carbon footprint; conservation of the Marine Protected Area and coral reef in Apo Reef in Occidental Mindoro; and beefing up reforestation efforts in the Ipo Watershed in Bulacan, which supplies Metro Manila with fresh water. Registered runners at Earth Day Run 2017 will not only experience a fun day of outdoor fitness by joining this year’s event, but will also be doing their part in contributing to National Geographic’s environmental efforts.


“Earth Day Run 2017 will be the biggest version of the race yet, with more expected participants from Manila and four other cities across Asia. We’re also excited to look back on our eight years of environmental advocacy and share and celebrate with our runners the positive change that they helped make possible through the years by joining Earth Day Run. We hope that Earth Day Run 2017 not only brings communities of running enthusiasts together for the common cause of saving the environment but also that it amplifies the important message of doing your own part today to help stop climate change and commit to sustainable solutions to save our beloved planet Earth,” said Charo Espedido, Director and Head of Content and Marketing at FOX Networks Group Philippines.


Interested runners of all ages can join National Geographic’s Earth Day Run 2017 by registering at natgeoearthdayrun.com and from March 1 to April 16, 2017.
