Versatile actress Mylene Dizon has never looked so healthy, centered and beautiful. She said that her looks are but a reflection of the joy she has found in doing the activities she loves.
Foremost among these is surfing. “It’s my main thing,” she says. “What I like about it is that all people are equal when it comes to the waves. It doesn’t matter what your status in life is, or who you are. It’s just between you and the waves.”
Her twice-monthly jaunts to La Union, Baler or Siargao to commune with the sea have taken on a deeper meaning. “For me, it’s between God and myself,” Mylene says. “That’s when I pray and I see how great the ocean is. Before I go out to surf I pray for safety and I thank Him for the awesome waves as we’re just raring to go out there.”
Another “discovery” that contributes to Mylene’s well-being is C-Lium Fibre, a supplement made from 100 percent, all-natural fiber derived from the psyllium plant. In her line of work and her newfound passion, she needs to constantly feel light to go the extra mile. “Taking C-Lium makes me feel light and good about myself,” she says. “I like knowing that whatever it is I put in my mouth will do me some good.”
Aside from making her feel light and easing her troubles when she has “difficulty moving,” Mylene says that it is also a plus for her that fiber helps decrease the absorption of bad cholesterol and slows down the absorption of sugar in the bloodstream. Her father, she says, is a diabetic and she is aware that the condition could be hereditary. “Taking C-Lium is my precaution as well,” she says.
Her belief in C-Lium is resolute, so much so that when the brand tapped her to become one of its ambassadors, she immediately said yes. “I have not partaken much of the endorsements particularly in social media because I have trouble doing it for money when I don’t believe in the product,” Mylene says. “But with C-Lium I was glad to do it because I actually like the product, it’s all-natural.”
At 40, Mylene is comfortable in her own skin and will not be easily swayed by fads. When it comes to her diet, for instance, she keeps it plain and simple. Before she goes to work, she drinks her favorite juice concoction that has, among its many ingredients, sugar beets, celery, carrots, cucumber, spinach and pineapple. Eating right is not a struggle for Mylene who, as a kid, always loved vegetables and avoided pork and beef.
Those who want to embark on a similar health wave as Mylene’s should make the decision and stand by it. “Don’t be bothered by people laughing at you when you choose a healthy life,” she advises. “People tend to do that because I think it’s an insecurity for them: they can’t do it or they don’t want to do it. If you choose to live healthy, go for it and stick with the program. Eat healthy, choose the exercise that will make you happy and choose a natural supplement such as C-Lium and you’ll be right on track.”
C-Lium Fibre is made from 100% natural psyllium fiber and is a good source of soluble and insoluble fiber. It comes in husk powder and capsule variants and is available in leading drugstores and supermarkets nationwide.
