Nutrilite Double X

Studies and research made by UNICEF shows that nutrition plays a big role in the mortality rate of children especially in Africa and Asia. "Nearly half of all deaths in children under 5 are attributed to undernutrition." source:

Even in developing and industrial nations, children and even adults are lacking in nutrition. Maybe this is mainly attributed to fastfoods, and those easy to cook meals that you just pop in the oven or the microwave. Another factor is that the lifestyle of people today are very much different decades ago when healthy food and having the right amount of sleep is important.

Luckily, there are now many food supplements in the market and one of those is Nutrilite Double X. As a backgrounder, Carl Rehnborg developed and originated the concept of plant supplements for the first multivitamin/multimineral sold in North America in 1934. And thru years of research, he came up with Nutrilite Double X which is Nutrilite's premier product since 1948. Double X contains plant extracts that is nutritionally beneficial. It includes alfalfa, parsley, among others.

50 Shades of Marketing

Know your shade and be in control. 

The theme of this year's 1st Asian Marketing Leadership Summit, "Fifty Shades of Marketing," got its inspiration from the popular fiction by E.L. James.

It is every marketer's goal to be able to control the market, making consumers believe a brand's promise and behave favorably. But according to a marketing guru, to be in control, brands must first learn to submit. "Marketing is always about brands being dominant and consumers submitting. But in reality, every brand has to submit first because the submissive is the one who is in control," explains Donald Lim, over-all chairman of the Philippine Marketing Association's summit.
