Glorious Coffee That's Good For You

My husband and I loves drinking coffee. In the morning, it is our bonding moment, to sip and eat bread and talk about our plans for the day. But recently, he was diagnosed to have Diabetes Type 2. So I abruptly cut his coffee from his system because he cannot take black coffee. He is really sad about it but I am trying to figure out how to incorporate coffee again in his system. For decades, coffee had received a bad reputation. Besides allegedly triggering high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, the Filipino habit of adding lots of sugar and cream to one’s cup has been said to aggravate diabetes.

Calamondin Wonders

Insect bite marks has always been a problem with my little boy. He is prone to mosquito bites I guess because of skin color and it bothers me when he has alot of bite marks all over his legs and even his abdomen. I tried to use alot of creams for him but what bothers me most is the discoloration after the swelling is gone. I have tried already the very famous cebo de macho but to no avail.

I searched for a natural remedy for him which is readily available at home - calamansi. Tried it on him for 3 weeks now and I am so amazed how his skin lightens without any signs of irritation and the insect marks are gradually disappearing. I use it also for my little girl during her bath mix it with water and her skin also lightens as well.

  • Serves as a bleaching agent for dark underarms.
  • Eliminates body odors.
