As a teen, I remember how excited I always get whenever it’s pageant season – not because I want to be part of the show, but because it’s inspiring to see women of different nationalities come together to represent their countries and different advocacies. They’re all more than just a pretty face! They’re strong, smart, talented, and well-informed about what needs to be changed in the world. I’ve always wondered what their secret was, so when given the chance to get into an online meeting with Ms. Universe 2018 Catriona Gray, we just had to ask!
Aside from regular exercise, doing Pilates – an exercise to strengthen muscles and improve flexibility, and healthy diet, Catriona shares that she really believes in the power of Vitamin C – a water-soluble vitamin that cannot be produced by our body. While it can be found mostly in the food we eat, such as citrus fruits, strawberries, and kiwi, taking an extra dose of this important nutrient can help our body’s immune functions, as well as other health benefits.
“I really believe in the power of Vitamin C. I really see the difference in my energy, overall appearance… even when I’m stressed. When I’m feeling sluggish or under the weather, I look for Vitamin C,” Catriona shares as Santé introduced her as their Daily C brand ambassador last Friday (October 30, 2020). “Keeping a healthy lifestyle, which starts with eating a well-balanced diet to get the right amounts of important nutrients and vitamins, is important to help maintain a healthy immune system. One of these important nutrients is Vitamin C, which has been featured in supplements due to its promising properties.”
As a model, singer, and beauty pageant titleholder, known for her healthy lifestyle choices and as a fitness inspiration for all, Catriona encourages everyone to get that extra dose of Vitamin C as she joins the Santé family as the new brand ambassador of Daily C.
With a lot of Vitamin C option out in the market, it’s noteworthy that Daily C is non-acidic, gentler on the stomach, and safer for daily consumption. I remember being warned by my friends that taking a lot of Vitamin C isn’t healthy as well. In fact, for adults, the recommended daily amount for Vitamin C is 65mg to 99mg a day, and the upper limit is 2000mg per day. Daily-C is available in 500mg and 750mg variants in vegetable capsules to address working adults’ needs.
Daily C is just one of the many other organic health and wellness products offered by Santé. Known for its flagship, Santé Barley™, the company has developed a comprehensive selection of everyday barley-based products. They are made with organic barley grass, as certified by BioGro, New Zealand’s leading organic certification agency. However, even when it’s sourced globally, it’s a Filipino company which gives more opportunities to Filipinos.
This is also part of the reasons why Catriona proudly shares her affiliation with Daily C – as she takes care of her health, she knows that every purchase also helps keep a Filipino company with Filipino employees afloat even amidst this pandemic. A kind-hearted Miss Universe through and through!
