Press Release:


Nattural Quality Corporation (NQC) is sponsoring the first important and biggest run of the new year, GO NATURAL 2012, on January 15, 2012 at the Bonifacio Global City.

NQC decided to sponsor this event because the incidence of diabetes in the Philippines has increased at a metabolic rate.  NQC is spearheading a campaign for the early education of children regarding this disease. 

Type 2 diabetes is a disease borne out of lifestyle.  Unhealthy eating habits and a lack of exercise results in obesity, the leading cause of Type 2 diabetes.  Children and their parents need to know that by laying the foundation of a healthy lifestyle and regular checks, the disease can be prevented.

For some adults, it is already too late.  Those who suffer from Type 2 diabetes are at a much higher risk for damage to the eyes, kidneys, nerves and blood vessels.  Because of these serious risk factors, doctors advise them to constantly screen for damage, take maintenance drugs to control their blood sugar level.  Studies show that consuming ampalaya can aid in lowering the blood sugar levels and thereby also lowering treatment costs for people with Type 2 diabetes.And, any help in managing Type 2 diabetes is a plus!  

NQC’s Ampalaya Plus and Delite Herbal Tea are both made with a combination of Ampalaya (Bitter Gourd), Banaba (Queen’s Flower), and LuyangDilaw (Turmeric). 

Ampalaya Plus is an all-natural food supplement that helps maintain blood sugar levels. 

Ampalaya Plus and Delite Herbal Tea are two of five all-natural supplements in the NQC product line.  The others are Slenda for weight loss management, Enduranz for restoration of male vitality and Renalin that promotes kidney wellness.

Proceeds from the event will be donated to ABS CBN’s Ako ang Simula who will help mount the campaign for the early education and awareness of diabetes.

GO NATURAL 2012 is organized by veteran marathon director Coach Rio dela Cruz under his RunRio group and Brand Action, Inc.  Registration fees are 3k - P 350, 5k - P 550, 10k - P650 and 21k - P800.  21K finishers get a finisher’s shirt to mark their achievement.

Interested parties may register at Toby's (Shangri-la Mall and SM Mall of Asia), Planet Sports (Trinoma and Glorietta), Riovana (BGC) and Athlete's Foot (Robinsons Galleria and Alabang Town Center).
