Attention Women! Do You Know How Iron Strong Are You?

This post is dedicated to all women, so, women (and guys who are care for their loved ones) please read on. Ever wonder why women had brittle nails, cold hands and feet, are constantly tired, weak or pale; experienced chest pains, fast heartbeat and shortness of breath or have constant bouts of headaches and dizzy spells? If you’ve said yes to one of more of these symptoms, you may just be iron deficient.

Well, you’re certainly not alone! As we know, women’s nutritional needs change during menstruation, pregnancy, breastfeeding and menopause. A woman’s reproductive life means that her nutritional needs differ greatly from those of a man. While Iron is an essential mineral required to deliver oxygen to all cells of the body. Men need about 10 micrograms a day, menstruating women need about 14 micrograms a day. The iron needs of older women revert to those of men.

Northwest Cherries is Here at Malaysia

It's the Northwest Cherries season again, yay! It's time to indulge in the fresh, sweet and delicious Northwest Cherries fresh off the orchards in the North-western states of USA. Northwest Cherries have become one of the most sought-after cherries thanks to its sweetness, firmness and consistency in colour.
I have attended the launch of Northwest Cherries at Tesco Malaysia not long ago. There, I got to know that there are over 2,500 growers work tirelessly to bring the world the sweetest, juiciest, plumpest cherries ripened on the trees. The US is currently the second-largest cherry exporter of the world and one of the leading exporters of cherries to Malaysia. Wow, thank you for all the hard work to bring us the healthiest food into Malaysia.
During the launch, Mr Abdul Ghani Wahab, Agriculture Specialist, United States Department of Agriculture stated that Northwest Cherries are grown on fertile soil with a climate that is ideal for great quality cherries the world loves. “There are 11 varieties of Northwest Cherries and we believe our cherries are the most delicious cherries in the world! We hope more Malaysians will try these juicy fruits while they’re in season until end August for health as well as for snacking pleasure.”
Meanwhile, Retna Malar, Northwest Cherry Growers Market Representative provided informative notes on the harvest of cherries throughout the season - “Northwest Cherries offer a wide growth spread across many regions throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, and Montana. The different microclimates allow cherries to ripen at different times through the season ensuring fresh harvest all summer long. The Northwest Cherries that you enjoy are never more than a few days from the tree.”

The Blossoming Energy, derived from a 28-year study of flowers is Mamonde’s latest innovation. It is a special active ingredient that helps to boost skin’s energy. Through the observation of flowers throughout their lifecycle; inclusive of changes in colour and temperature, Mamonde has discovered a unique component that helps flowers to bloom and survive longer than its usual lifespan.
