Philips Sonicare EasyClean toothbrush promises advanced plaque removal

A person’s smile conveys happiness, pleasure and amusement. And the power of this smile has plenty to do with how clean one’s teeth are. That’s why people go to great lengths to ensure their oral hygiene with daily brushing and regular visits to the dentist.

“Oral health is something that people should not overlook. Clean teeth and gums not only look good, but also help us to avoid oral infections and even diseases,” comments Ms. Me-Ann Achacoso, Philips Business Development Manager for Health and Wellness.

Philips introduces its new Sonicare EasyClean toothbrush to promote good oral care. Equipped with its very own patented sonic technology and ProResults brush head, the Sonicare EasyClean promises to whiten teeth by removing and reducing stains. Taking charge of your oral health is made easy with Sonicare EasyClean toothbrush as it removes up to two times more plaque than a manual toothbrush.

According to Ms. Achacoso, the Sonicare EasyClean toothbrush produces 31,000 brush strokes per minute which results into a dynamic cleaning action that drives fluids between the teeth and along the gumline to remove harmful plaque. It features a Smartimer that helps ensure the recommended dental time for brushing, and a Quadpacer that encourages thorough brushing in all quadrants of the mouth.

In addition, the SoniCare EasyClean features an angled brush head neck to help access the back teeth and other hard to reach areas of the mouth. The EasyClean toothbrush is proven safe on orthodontics, dental work, veneers, implant material and sensitive teeth.

“Poor oral health can lead to expensive and painful dental procedures. We at Philips have developed meaningful innovations for taking care of your overall health, so you can enjoy and put a smile on things that matter most,” concludes Ms. Achacoso.

MegaFiber is a boon to your health

It pays well to maintain a diet high in fiber. Fiber or roughage is that part of plant foods that is not digestible. While it cannot be absorbed, fiber increases the immune system in one's gut, keeps the digestive lining healthy, helps lower cholesterol, protects the heart plus pulls out excess hormones, and toxins from the body. Thus, increasing one's dietary fiber intake decreases the risks of common diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity. Using fiber supplements to compensate for insufficient fiber in the diet can help prevent constipation and irregularity.

Things just got better for current fiber users and those intent on adopting a healthier lifestyle as MegaFiber, the new standard in food fiber, is now back at Mercury Drug stores.

MEGAFIBER is 100% made from the best food fiber in the world. There are no additives, sweeteners, preservatives, artificial colors or flavoring in MEGAFIBER. It is also cholesterol-free, yeast-free and gluten-free.

Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), MEGAFIBER is a natural and safe way to regularly rid the body of wastes that can lead to digestive disorders and serious health conditions. It promotes digestive health and ensures regular bowel movement. It fights both constipation and diarrhea, helps regulate blood sugar and uric acid, reduces cholesterol, and assists in weight management. Taking one tablespoon of MEGAFIBER regularly, mixed in a half glass with your preferred breakfast drink, will result to better health and overall well-being.

The all-natural MEGAFIBER helps regulate the digestive system and ensures regular bowel movement, cleans out the digestive system and eliminates waste from the colon and intestines, providing relief to those suffering from constipation. When it absorbs liquids, it forms a slippery film and swells by 8 to 14 times its normal weight and forms a soft, bulky mass that passes quickly and easily through the colon and acts like a sponge in the intestinal tract. It also helps stimulate the reflex needed for the bowels to empty.

Those suffering from diarrhea will also benefit from MEGAFIBER since it does not only absorb water from watery stools, its bulking effect slows down the bowel and reduces bowel movement, reducing the number of times that one must go to the bathroom. Increased intake of fiber absorbs excess water in stools and consequently allows the intestinal muscles something to hold on to. It keeps your digestive system healthy. With regular intake, it helps avoid constipation and the risk of diverticulitis.

Because MEGAFIBER binds with cholesterol secreted in bile acids and excretes it before it is absorbed into the blood stream, it helps reduce cholesterol. As it absorbs water, it swells inside your intestine and produces a feeling of fullness. With reduced hunger pangs, there is less tendency to overeat.

The nourishing fiber helps reduce incidence of cardiovascular disease as it aids the body in keeping a healthy digestive system. The insoluble fiber moves through the digestive system to remove waste, toxins and materials your body doesn't need. Insoluble fiber adds the bulk needed to clean out the colon and regulate bowel movements

It also promotes better sugar control since fiber slows the absorption of sugar into your bloodstream to help maintain stable blood sugar levels and help prevent Type 2 diabetes. It allows food to be digested more slowly, releasing carbohydrates more evenly, thus giving diabetics a better chance to cope with increase in blood sugar after meals.

While MEGAFIBER is suitable for children, it is not recommended for infants. Parents can simply mix MEGAFIBER with their child’s favorite juice and allow it to gel before spoon feeding the mixture to the youngster.

MEGAFIBER fiber supplement packs give you more fiber and value for every peso. MEGAFIBER comes in bigger 7.5g sachets at P 10.75 each, travel pack of 30 sachets at P 325, and in bigger 300g jars at P 430. It is also offered in half-kilo family size packs at P705 for even greater savings.

Feel free to contact customer service hotlines 524-6549, 354-2208 to 09 and 09474890262 to facilitate product inquiry. Additional product information may also be obtained at, MEGAFIBER facebook page, and via email
