GMA’s Felipe L Gozon leads special program of Anak TV’s Fun Family Walk


What’s a fun family activity that is highly affordable and contributes to our well-being? Well, walking around parks and other open spaces is one great idea. Weekends in UP Diliman is proof of this growing phenomenon with individual joggers/runners, barkadas and families walking leisurely (or speed walking, for the fitness enthusiasts) around the academic oval.

And then, of course, we have watching TV as another favorite way to while away the time with the family. With the current trend of staycations (vacation spent at home – the emerging trend in light of rising fuel costs and other travel expenses), the TV remains ensconced as a major source of entertainment (and information) during such stay-at-home downtimes. Also, the 2011 Nielsen Audience Measurement Report revealed that TV is still the most popular media platform in the country. Continue reading

Inheriting hair loss — and its solution


When considering the causes of an ailment, one of the first places to look is our genes. Could it possibly be something you’ve inherited?

 With hair loss, this is certainly the case. In fact, it is the most common cause of hair loss, called Androgenetic Alopecia. It occurs in about 95 percent of males and 70 percent in females. Studies reveal that this also occurs in combination with other factors such as aging and hormonal changes.

Symptoms of hereditary hair loss include a gradual thinning of the hair to complete hair loss on a certain part of the scalp, if not entire baldness. The hair loss pattern and rate is different among men and women, though they similarly occur in the 20s and 30s. Family history is the biggest indicator of when hereditary hair loss starts to take place, and at what rate.

The good news is that hereditary hair loss is treatable. And while invasive options such as hair lasers and transplants abound, nature itself has bestowed us with the remedy we need to deal with hair loss.


Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion is a an all-natural formula for treating hair loss. It is made of herbal ingredients such as moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, aloe vera, the essential oils of rosemary and peppermint, and virgin coconut oil.

Collectively, the ingredients help improve blood circulation to the scalp and increase nutrients to hair follicles. Other beneficial side effects include returning and locking the hair’s natural luster, and preventing premature graying or whitening.

The brand was first endorsed by hair care expert and beauty icon Fanny Serrano, whose testimony sheds light on Novuhair’s tried and tested effectiveness.

Recently, Mr. Andrew Wolff, first-runner up to Mr. World 2012, has also joined the ranks of Novuhair’s brand ambassadors. Known as the NovuMan, Wolff has been using Novuhair as a preventive measure against hereditary hair loss, as well as for hair care maintenance.


Just as hair loss can be inherited from your family, so can you inherit the solution—from nature.

Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion is available at Mercury, Watsons, Rose Pharmacy, South Star, Manson and selected salons in Metro Manila.
