Pharex launches new 15-day Compliance Pouch to beat high cholesterol this 2016



With one in every three Filipinos having high cholesterol levels, how could they control its onset without sacrificing what this year has to offer—on the table?



A study on cholesterol levels among Filipinos led by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute revealed that 31.4 percent of Filipino adults 20 years old and over had “borderline high to high cholesterol levels.” Now that the New Year is here, it is often challenging to control huge consumptions of food—particularly those that are rich in cholesterol—knowing that annual festivities and birthday celebrations are here left and right.

Cholesterol is a waxy substance found in fats in the blood. Though cholesterol is needed by the body because it is essential to building healthy cells, too much of it could increase a person’s chance of having cardiovascular disease.

“Some people make it a point to reduce their consumption of cholesterol-rich foods especially now that another year has been capped off,” said Tomas Luke Marcelo Agana III, president and CEO of Pharex HealthCorp. “But enjoying what the New Year brings need not come at the expense of sacrificing your year-long joy and family bondings especially when stories are better shared on the table.”

Bearing that in mind, Pharex HealthCorp.—the most prescribed generic brand of medicines—introduces its 15-day Pharex Compliance Pouch for Cholesterol to help Filipino adults who are prone to high cholesterol adhere to their medication without compromising their plans this 2016.

With the new Pharex Compliance Pouch for Cholesterol, Filipinos may prevent the rise of their cholesterol levels by adhering to therapy without sacrificing their budget. This means that Filipinos with high cholesterol may get the same effective, quality maintenance medicines good for 15 days that’s 50 percent more affordable when compared to an imported brand.

“Ideally, the new Compliance Pouch is made for patients who are currently taking maintenance medicines to keep their cholesterol at its normal and desirable levels,” Agana said. “Now, Filipino patients may conveniently take their prescribed medication wherever they go in anytime of the day.”

The new Pharex Compliance Pouch for Cholesterol is indicated for patients who have elevated bad cholesterol or low-density lipoprotein (LDL). This type of cholesterol builds up in the walls of the arteries, causing them to harden or become narrower. When left untreated, this may lead to heart attack.

“High cholesterol can be  inheritable, but it often comes as a result of an unhealthy lifestyle,” Agana said. “While it is important to religiously take your medication as prescribed by your doctor, it is also imperative to watch what you eat and visit your doctor regularly.”

Pharex Compliance Pouch for Cholesterol is so much more convenient.  It comes in a resealable, water-resistant foil pouch that keeps its contents clean and dry.  And it is easy to carry so patients will never miss their regular dose.

He concluded, “Pharex makes quality healthcare more affordable and accessible to Filipinos. As the New Year starts, make sure that you carry the Pouch with you to prevent the life-threatening consequences of high cholesterol.”

Red Ribbon - The Ribbon That Ties Families On Christmas



The holiday season is the time to hang your Christmas ornaments and play your favorite holiday tunes when family and friends get together. But while you’re making your home more festive and exciting for the holiday season, receiving a box of treats is still perhaps one of the most anticipated activities.


What marks Christmas is the series of feasts that are meant to bring family and friends closer. And no meal is ever complete without a Red Ribbon product.

“Christmas may seem very merry with presents under the tree. However, this season is all about sharing, and nothing is more memorable than sharing special moments with people closest to you,” said Zinnia Rivera, general manager of Red Ribbon.

She added, “This is where Red Ribbon comes in—while people may serve different types of food during family reunions, Red Ribbon never misses the dining table especially during the holidays as it brings the family closer.”



Now that Christmas is fast-approaching, Red Ribbon ensures that its wide range of delectable products will continue to delight families from the moment the box arrives at home up until it is served.

“Whenever there’s a red box on the table, people—especially children—can’t wait to see what’s inside. The temptation to take a peek at what’s inside is just too hard to resist,” Rivera said. “And when the ribbon is finally untied and the box is opened, you’ll see the sparkle in their eyes.”
Red Ribbon offers great-tasting breads, cakes, rolls, and pastries that never fail to delight Filipino families regardless of the occasion. For its top-of-the-line cakes, its commitment to serve just the right amount of sweetness, softness and chewiness in every bite helps individuals reminisce the sweetest moments they shared with their family.
Red Ribbon started in Quezon City in 1979, with the objective of offering great-tasting food that brings feelings of joy to every Filipino family. As it grows to be one of the leading bakeshops in the country, Red Ribbon takes part in the Filipino family’s everyday life especially during the holiday season.

Rivera concluded, “No gift is more elaborative than a family moment shared. This Christmas, may we all remember that the Yuletide season is the time for reuniting with our loved ones who do nothing less than give what’s best for us.”
