This morning, I was requested by the associate of advertising company through email  for a press release of ORACARE that could help to my blog and to the readers as well.

SELF-IMPROVEMENT is something that basketball star Chris Tiu truly believes in. In his official blog ( he writes: “I believe it is truly helpful to one’s self-improvement if one makes a conscious effort to set concrete goals to enable him/her to work towards it. It doesn’t matter if it’s a long-term goal, mid-term or short-term goal.” For Chris, self-improvement is the philosophy behind everything he does.

“If you look at the biographies of all the successful people in the world, you will notice that they all have one thing in common: they always look for ways to improve their own lives and the lives of others. That way, when they succeed, they are able to also benefit their fellow man,” says Chris, adding that he would like to do the same for his fellow Filipinos.

Chris Tiu is not your ordinary celebrity. He’s an international-caliber athlete and captain of a national basketball squad that represents the Philippines proudly in international basketball tournaments. He is a commercial model, TV host, and is even a public official, serving as a councilor in Barangay Urdaneta in Makati City.

“I strongly believe we can achieve our goals no matter what people say. With the right frame of mind, training, exposure, discipline, skill, we can succeed in life despite the odds! Just like how Manny Pacquiao, the Azkals and other sports heroes have done,” says Chris.

From the Olympics to oral care

Chris believes that self-improvement extends to all aspects of one’s life – even oral care. This is why he switched from his old mouthwash to OraCare Mouthrinse.

“My old mouthwash worked. Like many conventional mouthwashes, the brand contained alcohol. It freshened my breath but only for a short time. Another major downside was the stinging, even burning sensation in my mouth. It even left an unpleasant aftertaste. When I switched to OraCare, I never went back to my old mouthwash brand,” says Chris.

He adds that not only is OraCare pleasant to use, it is also very effective in removing unpleasant mouth odors.

“The first thing I noticed was that OraCare Mouthrinse is clear, like water. I enjoy using it because it does not have alcohol and no strong flavor that can sting my mouth. At the same time, it gives me a refreshing feeling afterwards, with no aftertaste. I just keep using it, bringing it around with me in my gym bag,” says Chris.

For Chris, OraCare is yet another tool for self-improvement.

“It may seem like a minor change, but having fresh, pleasant breath makes a great difference whenever I talk to people—whether they’re my teammates, my fans, my constituents or my friends and relatives. Having fresh breath sends them the message that I care about myself, my hygiene, and that I also care about their comfort when we talk,” he says.

Chris adds that using OraCare improves a person’s oral hygiene and even encourages his friends to use it.

“I have friends who know they ought to use mouthwash more often. Unfortunately, alcohol-based mouthwashes are too strongly-flavored and contain alcohol that can be painful to the mouth. This makes using them quite unpleasant and discourages more regular use,” he says.

And because OraCare contains no alcohol and has a mild flavor, people need not be afraid to try it and experience its benefits for themselves. Its active ingredient, Stabilized Chlorine Dioxide, is proven to effectively eliminate strong mouth odors from flavorful food,as well as kill odor-and-cavity-causing bacteria in the mouth. This combination of potent anti-odor, anti-bacterial effects plus the pleasant, gentle taste and mouth-feel, makes OraCare ideal for those who wish to improve their oral hygiene and, in turn, themselves.

Chris Tiu takes self-improvement seriously and makes it part of his lifestyle. This is why he chose OraCare over his old mouthwash. OraCare is simply the better choice.

OraCare Mouthrinse Cool, Regular and Arctic variants are available in all major supermarkets and drugstores nationwide.


WHEN it comes to administering medicine to their children, moms are quite meticulous.  After all, they want to give the best to their kids, while making sure that they don’t suffer from side effects that some chemical cough formulations may cause in the long run.

And when it comes to treating their children’s cough, moms Charmaine Niduaza, Rossana Singson-Kawpeng, and Allen Hernandez have found an effective and safe cough remedy in ASCOF Lagundi Syrup.

I trust only ASCOF Lagundi Syrup because I know it’s safe for their health,” says the 26-year old Charm.

“My kids’ health is my top priority. I trust only ASCOF Lagundi Syrup because I know it’s safe for their health,” says the 26-year Niduaza, who is mom to two kids.

“I don’t want my children to take any cough medicine that might have side effects, so I give them ASCOF Lagundi Syrup, says mommy Rosanna.

Forty-one-year old Singson-Kawpeng adds, “I don’t want my children to take any cough medicine that might have side effects, so I give them ASCOF Lagundi Syrup.”

ASCOF Lagundi is made from 100% Lagundi leaves. Clinical trials have shown Lagundi to be equally effective as other chemical-based over-the-counter cough medications, but without their potentially harmful side effects.

ASCOF Lagundi is made from 100% Lagundi leaves.

ASCOF Lagundi works in three ways: one, it opens up the bronchial tubes to facilitate airflow, therefore making it easier for the child to breathe; two, it dissolves mucus so it’s easier to expel; and three, it reduces the inflammation in the respiratory passages due to its anti-histaminic action.

Aside from its efficacy and safety, these mothers also laud the fact that it is easy to have their kids take ASCOF Lagundi syrup because it comes in flavors that children love—strawberry and ponkan.

“It’s difficult for kids to take medicines that taste bitter. Good thing ASCOF Lagundi has deliciously flavored syrup variants,” Mommy Allen says.

“It’s difficult for kids to take medicines that taste bitter. Good thing ASCOF Lagundi has deliciously flavored syrup variants,” Hernandez says.

For older kids, there’s ASCOF Lagundi Forte Syrup in menthol and sugar-free menthol variants, recommended for kids age 13 years old and above.

Singson-Kawpeng shares that ASCOF Lagundi Syrup has made taking cough medication easier for her two children.

“My two daughters love the yummy flavors of ASCOF Lagundi Syrup. They say it doesn’t taste like medicine at all,” she explains.

Hernandez, meanwhile, concludes, “It pains me to listen to my kids cough all day and through the night. I’m glad there’s ASCOF Lagundi that helps cautious moms like me relieve our children of their cough – the safe and natural way!,” Hernandez concludes.
