Jeunesse Anion Pads – my healthier sanitary choice.
It’s been over two years now since I last used a regular commercial pad. If I were at all to use a disposable sanitary napkin, I’ve only since used Jeunesse Anion. It’s been that long too since I last experienced menstrual cramps.

A quick back story: Menstrual cramps or dysmenorrhea is something I’ve always had to deal with ever since menarche at age 11. I cannot remember the number of days and years I might as well be deemed paralyzed whenever I have my period. It’s the one thing that I so deeply dreaded EVERY.SINGLE.MONTH.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine have classified period pain into two different categories: Primary and Secondary.
Period pain is very common: most girls and women have pain of varying intensity at some point during their period. In 10 out of 100 women the pain is so bad that they are unable to carry out their usual daily activities on one to three days every month.
Moderate to severe primary dysmenorrhea is more common in women under the age of 20. The pain usually gets better or even goes away completely within a few years of their first period. Many women have milder period pain after the birth of their first child.
Secondary dysmenorrhea often first arises after a young woman has already been menstruating for several years. Here, women may also have pain at times of the month other than during menstruation.
I’ve proven this to be true, because at some point, cramps seem to have been non-existent a year or two after giving birth. But it came right back with a vengeance soon enough and I had to radically change the way I manage my period. In 2014, I decided that I’ve finally had it with period pains and altogether jettison the use of regular commercial pads. I’ve since started using bamboo charcoal pads when I’m at home. But because a lot of times, I have to leave the house, a washable pad, no matter how economical or non-trigger for cramps it is, isn’t able to hold heavy periods. Jeunesse Anion has been my period savior, and suffice it to say, I haven’t looked back.

I love that Jeneusse Anion champions women towards being intentional in focusing on this basic need. I strongly believe that this is basic enough, since menses come in every month. Whether it’s clockwork like mine, for some, others – irregular. But it definitely is something women have to deal with for a very long time, battle with constantly, at least for most of us who’ve had to endure dysmenorrhea.
Jeunesse Anion recently partnered with Marriott Hotel Manila to freshen up those habits and stay motivated with an hour of Zumba and exciting demo of healthy one-pan meals, courtesy of Simply Cereal, Doña Elena Olive Oils, Clara Ole, and Al Dente Pasta.
Dancing is a surefire way of shaking excess calories and gain friends. Apart from ensuring a well-balanced meal, Jeunesse Anion campaigns for staying fit through active lifestyle, just like what multi-awarded celebrity host and performer Regine Tolentino does. It’s as if she never runs out of energy.
She’s the country’s “Dance Diva,” and a strong influencer in the dance fitness industry who proves that it’s one of the best ways to recharge our batteries. Regine is a licensed Zumba® and U-Jam® Fitness instructor, and certified by the AFAA (Athletic and Fitness Association of America).
Exercising to music like doing Zumba has loads of physical and mental benefits including improved condition of heart and lungs, increased muscular strength and tone, while reduces risks of osteoporosis and heart attack. Attending Zumba classes not only develops healthier body, it also helps moms become socially active, increasing emotional power. Much more, we love its mood-boosting benefits as it favors the release of endorphins that helps us melt not only fats but also PMS symptoms like moodiness.
Chef Mom Len Santos-Ding on Guilt-Free and Easy-Peasy One-Pan Meals
With the rise of technology, people have grown more pre-occupied of so many modern things, forgetting the basic and most important of all — healthy but good food. Because we’re too busy and have less time to stay in the kitchen, we’ve grown so accustomed of eating fast or fried food. Len Santos-Ding, our mom chef instructor believes that a deliciously healthy meal doesn’t have to be boring by incorporating real and whole ingredients that are not hard to prepare at all.
Jeunesse Anion gets it. We moms have to juggle a million and different things. As a homeschooling mom who’s freelancing here and there as a social media manager and mommy blogger, with my own household chores to care for, to boot, it’s easy to get lost in the everyday grind and count out what we use for regular sanitary hygiene.
Why It Matters
The chemical make up of regular commercial pads contains toxic substances that make them ultra absorbent. Dr. Mercola discussed it further in his article, “Women Beware: Most Feminine Hygiene Products Contain Toxic Substances.” This has been highly linked to female reproductive issues like endometriosis and even Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS).
When we take care of ourselves, it’s also like a gift to our family as well.
