Pomi-T Product Launch - Natural Supplement That Slows Cancer Growth

More and more people started consuming health supplements to take in specific nutrients that is needed in our body.

Why do people prefer to go for supplements instead of eating the real food?

This is because processing and cooking of food will lead to loss of nutrients. Hence, our body will absorb lesser vitamins and minerals. Consuming supplements will allow you to have the vitamins and minerals of the whole food.

I attended the product launch of Pomi-T, a scientifically formulated natural supplement with anti-oxidant and other benefits, made from a balance of foods from four distinct food categories - fruit, vegetable, spice and leaf.

The event was held at Au Petit Salut.

Pomi-T is made up of 4 different ingredients in a capsule form -  pomegranate, broccoli, turmeric and green tea.

There are so many different fruits and vegetables that is good for health. Why did they select these 4 ingredients?

Shall let the expert share with us more about Pomi-T.

Pomi-T is one of the few supplements supported by medical research. It's combination of natural ingredients has been carefully researched in a study backed by United Kingdom’s National Cancer Research Network and formulated by Professor Robert Thomas, a leading British oncologist.

Pomi-T contains only pure active ingredients. There are no preservatives, colours or flavours, chelating or bulking agents in Pomi-T.

The US Food and Drug Authority (FDA) and the UK’s Medicines and Health Regulatory Authority (MHRA) have classed Pomi-T as a food supplement and not a medicinal product so it cannot be recommended for any medical condition or claim any health benefits.

As an all-natural food supplement, Pomi-T can be consumed by anyone over the age of 16.

Pomi-T is based on scientific studies into the properties of these four ingredients:

Broccoli
Regular broccoli intake regulates genes linked to abnormal cell growth and promotes genes associated with the suppression of abnormal cells.

We also have dinner incorporated with the four ingredients.
For starter, we have maine lobster, asparagus, broccoli, fresh pomegranate and tarragon dressing.

Turmeric
Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties that inhibit the growth of abnormal stem cells, consequentially reducing the growth of abnormal cells and prevents the spread of damaged cells without harming healthy cells.



How to incorporate turmeric into our meal?
We made it into potato, broccoli and turmeric souffle. 

Pomegranate
Pomegranate has natural antioxidant properties that inhibit the uncontrolled growth of cells. It also helps to reduce the migration of abnormal cells and aids the regeneration of healthy ones instead.

For main course, I have fillet of cod fish, creamy parsnips and pomegranate salsa.

Green Tea.
Green tea inhibits the spread of damaged cells, retains good cells, and suppresses the formation of blood vessels that supply abnormal cells with nourishment. 

For dessert, we have green tea parfait, jasmine sorbet and sable biscuit.

Professor Thomas conducted a double-blind randomised clinical trial to evaluate Pomi-T’s effectiveness. In that study, Pomi-T was proven to lower levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA), a protein that indicated abnormal growth in prostate cells, and slows cancer progression. 

Each ingredient works differently to stimulate epigenetic mechanisms that modify the way cancer cells regulate their growth and development, without significant side effects.

Pomi-T is suitable for people like me who does not like to eat vegetables. With Pomi-T, I will still be able to absorb the nutrients of the 4 ingredients without having to consume the food.

Pomi-T is retailing at $39.90 (U.P$49.90) for 60 capsules at Guardian and Unity till end January 2015.

Beauty Review: NIVEA Body Intensive Moisture Serum SPF 25 PA

Very often, we focused only on skincare and neglect that our body need to be taken care too.

Exposure to the sun and harsh environmental influences results in the loss of moisture and essential oils that protects our skin, leaving it dry and damaged. As such, skin will appear older than he/she is.

As our body forms the majority of your appearance, it is important for us to take good care of our body skin so that we can have healthy looking skin.

I was being introduced to the NIVEA Body Intensive Moisture Serum SPF 25.

It is the first body serum that not only repairs 10 signs of extra accumulated dry and damaged skin within 24 hours, but also shields it from the sun.

Here are the 10 signs of dry and damaged skin:

1. Flaky 
2. Itchy 
3. Uneven 
4. Scratched 
5. Rough 
6. Cracked 
7. Stressed 
8. Dull 
9. Peeling
10. Tight

Benefits and ingredients in NIVEA Body Intensive Moisture Serum SPF 25 PA:

100X concentrated Vitamin E & Grape Seed Oil - defend skin cells from sun induced problems and free radical damages; it protects our skin from the loss of moisture.

Avocado Oil - aids in relieving dryness and itch, contributes to regeneration and rejuvenation of the skin, and repairs dry and damaged skin in the process.

Hydra IQ - restores skin’s own moisture supply and regulates the balance of moisture.

SPF 25 & PA++ - protection from harmful UVA & UVB rays.

This serum serves the purpose of moisture serum and sunscreen. It saved me the hassle from applying sun protection after applying body moisturizer.

Recommended to be use during the day as product comes with SPF protection.

Apply the serum all over the body after shower.

It comes with an extra light and non-sticky serum formula to allow for quick absorption into the skin.

My review:

Upon application of NIVEA Body Intensive Moisture Serum, the serum is fast absorbed into my skin, leaving my skin feeling soft and supple. It makes me feel wonderful too. The serum is lightweight and non-sticky, it will not make you feel uncomfortable.

It keeps my skin hydrated and lightened areas of dry patches.

Within 24 hours from application, the 8 signs of dry and damaged skin become less apparent. Skin becomes noticeably healthier, smoother, softer and suppler.

NIVEA Body Intensive Moisture Serum SPF 25 PA is retailing at $8.90 for 200ml at all leading personal care stores and supermarkets, including Watsons, Guardian, Cold Storage, NTUC Fairprice outlets and major retailers.

Boon Teck's Farewell lunch at TungLok Signatures

Tuesday 9/9/14

天下无不散的宴席,大家有缘再会.

One of my lunch kakis, Boon Teck, is leaving our company, my lunch kakis will drop from 7 to 6. 
We treated him to Tung Lok Signatures for lunch during his second last week in office. This was my first time dining in TungLok Signatures.

TungLok Signatures offers a tantalising range of traditional Chinese cuisine, such as Cantonese, Shanghainese and Sichuan dishes with a dash of Modern creations. We decided to order dim sum for lunch.

We ordered 2 porridge for sharing.

I love the century egg porridge. It tasted more yummy and delicious.

Custard bun with creamy salted egg yolk. The custard bun has a slight crispy outer layer.

We had the char siew chee cheong fun (rice noodle roll).

Siew Mai, pork dumpling.

Xiao Long Bao is a must to order whenever I have dim sum

Har gow, another traditional Chinese dumpling.

Chiled Beancurd Pudding with Avocado toped with Ice-cream. 
The bill was about $200 so each of us paid about $30++ 

Cravings for dim sum satisfied.

Friday 19/9/14

Took a group photo on Boon Teck's last day.
I felt happy for him because I know that he is leaving for a better prospect. All the best for your future endeavours.

Premiere screening of Scorpion - RTL CBS Entertainment HD

Yet another exciting drama is airing on RTL CBS Entertainment HD channel. Keep a lookout for Scorpion.

SCORPION, inspired by a true story, is a high-octane drama about eccentric genius Walter O’Brien and his team of brilliant misfits who comprise the last line of defense against complex, high-tech threats of the modern age.

At the age of 13, Walter O’Brien has an IQ of 197.


Cast: 
• Elyes Gabel (Walter) 
• Katharine McPhee (Paige) 
• Eddie Kaye Thomas (Toby) • Jadyn Wong (Happy) 
• Ari Stidham (Sylvester) 
• Robert Patrick (Cabe Gallo)

They operate as a think tank formed by Homeland Security solving the most mind-boggling national threats. 

O’Brien’s “Scorpion” team includes Toby Curtis, an expert behaviorist who can read anyone; Happy Quinn, a mechanical prodigy; and Sylvester Dodd, a statistics guru.  Pooling their extensive technological knowledge to solve mind-boggling predicaments amazes federal agent Cabe Gallo, who shares a harrowing history with O’Brien. 

However, while this socially awkward group is comfortable with each other’s humor and quirks, life outside their circle confounds them, so they rely on Paige Dineen, who has a young, gifted son, to translate the world for them.

We were back at The Screening Room to catch the first episode of Scorpion - Pilot, which is directed by Justin Lin of The Fast and the Furious. Totally excited for it.

Canape and wine to go along while watching the show.

The first episode was mind-blowing. The action-packed drama definitely keep me in suspense and wanting the story after that. I was already hooked up to the drama and can't wait to watch episode 2. I'm sure you will enjoy the show as much as I do.

Thanks RTL CBS Entertainment for the invitation, I enjoyed the show very much.

Scorpion premieres on September 23, Tuesday at 9:00pm on RTL CBS Entertainment HD, SingTel mio TV Ch 318 and StarHub TV Ch 509.
