Are you constantly feeling bloated, lethargic and constipated? Or are you subjected to poor skin condition, overweight issues and bad breath?
Inevitable factors such as pollution, second hand smoke, lousy eating habits, chemicals in processed food and stress among others cause toxin build-up within the human body. Even though the body goes through a natural process of detoxification daily, the process does not completely remove all toxin traces. Uneliminated toxins that accumulate within our bodies make our organs work doubly hard, ultimately affecting our overall health.
Enhancing your body’s detoxification process is the key to jump-start your system to start experiencing a more energised, radiant and healthier life!
Benefits of Detox:
Enhancing the detoxification process helps increase energy levels, improves your mood and sleep quality, boosts emotional and mental clarity, allows you to control weight gain factors such as sugar cravings and promotes glowing skin.

Our parents have taken care of us in immeasurable ways often sacrificing their own wants, without asking for much in return. Their nagging words and strict ways can sometimes be interpreted as unkind but truly, they come from a place of unconditional love.
Raising us to be the capable people we are today certainly could not have been an easy task. Potty training in itself is a formidable task in its own right, let alone the other duties that come with the territory of parenthood.
So how can we give all of this back to them? We can’t. We can, however, empower them to live free with good health and a light heart through heaps of love and appreciation. It is important for them to know that they matter to us, especially when it’s way too easy to take them for granted in our busy life filled with the lot of commitments and stress.
“Thank you” is a good place to start, but we can go beyond that to show our thanks with simple acts of love that will not only strengthen our bond but also foster good mind and emotional health, which translate to a strong, positive way of life so Mom and Dad can continue to break their own boundaries and be the best version of themselves.
Eat Together and Make it Indulgent
Take time out to eat with them and spare no efforts to make it indulgent. Pamper them with all their favourites, for food is the route to bliss. Sitting down together for a meal brings the family together and creates an environment for conversation to flow. While engaging in a delicious activity, you also get to share your day-to-day with Mom and Dad and keep them involved so they don’t feel like they are standing on the side lines of your life, especially when they were once the main event.
If calories pose a concern at any of these makan mania, Kinohimitsu’s COF weight management system will aptly combat that with its sophisticated, patented technology that aids to reduce fat absorption by binding to fat molecules and eliminating them from the body. Mom and Dad can, therefore, let go of the reins and enjoy gastronomy indulgences to their hearts’ content with minimum worry and guilt.
Take Part in Their Hobbies
Nothing says you care and are interested in their life like making the effort to do something they like with them. Join their weekly tai chi in the park or play mah-jong with their kakis, or simply watch their favourite serial with them.
Being a part of their past time gets you involved in their life and makes them feel important to you. Plus, it’s also a good way for them to show you off to their friends! A good spirit accompanied with good health creates opportunities to embrace life to the fullest.
You can also ensure that Mom and Dad continue to live a life of inspiration doing the things they love with our variety of botanical nourishment tasked to improve well-being by reinforcing immunity, alleviating pain and increasing energy:
Bio-Booster, JointPro360, Health Pad, Sky Grass
“How Are You?”
Ask them how they are doing. Parents don’t wish to bother us with their worries or ailments and may think it too frivolous to reveal the challenges they face in life. Making time to talk with them and asking them how they are coping is a good way to stay connected and make sure the relationship with Mom and Dad stays strong.
The occasional heart-to-heart facilitates sharing and allows both you and your parents to open up to one another. It keeps you close and always a part of each other’s lives.
I Just Called to Say “I Love You”
Every parent is bound to miss their children even if they don’t say it. A five-minute call to discuss even the most mundane of things like what you ate for lunch makes them feel happy that you thought of them in your busy day. Parenthood can be a challenging journey, frightful even, especially when the time comes to release you into the gnarly clutches of the world.
Trust us, the worrying never stops – whether you are eating well; whether you are driving safe; whether their grand-kids are back from school. It never stops. Calling them daily assures them that everything is OK and you are well. It’s also a chance for you to check up on them and how their day is going.
Take Care of Their Health
Be vigilant about their physical, mental and emotional conditions. The ravages of aging can sneak up on any one of us. Nipping it in the bud is better than having to overcome a full-blown bout. Kinohimitsu’s range of supplements embody a life of wellness with thoughtfully curated healing miracles from nature to treat conditions while also labouring to safeguard against them.
Fun is a tried and tested way to bond with people. Get the tradition of game night started with your folks if you don’t already have one. Watching TV has its own joys but it can also limit mental stimulation and drive the mind to dulled depths.
Playing games with your parents creates an occasion to let loose and have a few laughs while encouraging the mind to stay sharp. You can opt for more traditional games which your parents are familiar with – charades; board games like Monopoly or Clue; card games like Uno, Go Fish or Snap; or kick things up a notch with more in-the-now phone guessing games like Heads Up. Whatever the choice, it’s certain to bring everyone together in heaps of laughter and lively, beneficial energy.
Kinohimitsu too can lend a hand to improve mental health with our Be Sharp range, which facilitates better memory recall and concentration while doubling as a stress alleviator. Best watch out because Mom and Dad just might prove to be tough competition the next game night.
It’s Father’s Day! Needless to say, many of us are cracking our aspiring brains to come up with creative ideas the perfect gift to plan the perfect day Dad will remember for years to come.
Not to worry, Kinohimitsu to the rescue!
We go back to basics on this one with a sprinkling of new as we thoughtfully put together a list of simple, yet meaningful and wellness-inspiring activities that promote good health on all tiers of the mind, body and soul as you bond with Dad and show him how much he is loved and appreciated for being such a great Dad! After all, the simplest moments can be some of the most enjoyable and memorable ones.
The Great Outdoors
Get Dad out into nature for some fresh air and a chance to stretch his legs and get that circulation going. After days of being stuck indoors in an office or commuting between work and home, some time out in the greenery will be a welcome treat and revival.
Get your walking shoes on and explore one of Singapore’s many nature trails with Dad to fill your heads with everything green, fresh and natural. Taking a walk with someone creates an opportune time to talk, share and bond over conversation, while the peaceful, natural surroundings re-generates your entire person and put you in a refreshed state of mind.
Fly a Kite, Lift the Spirit
Kite-flying is a boyhood hobby that never gets old. It’s a fun activity to do together — go ahead and learn all the old-school tricks Dad has up his sleeves! While being a great way to share some hearty laughs on all the “lift-off mishaps”, it’s also a perfect opportunity for Dad to reminisce the freedom of his childhood and smile from ear-to-ear. Out in the open field with the caress of the breeze, spirits take flight as a beautiful moment is created and is a memory made. To take the adventure to the next level, you could even make your very own kites and let Dad teach you the craft of his boyhood pastime while enjoying an extraordinary day together.
Sun, Sand and Seashells
The splash of cooling waves on one’s ankles never tires. What better way to spend the day than with a picnic at the beach and a walk along the seashore to collect seashells after? The beach is therapeutic to the heart, mind, body and soul. Feeling the soft sand beneath your feet while listening to the sound of the gentle, lapping waves can do wonders to re-align disarrayed nerves as well as relax tense muscles. Now, who would say no to that?
It is also a good time to get personal with Dad and catch up on missed conversations and devote some personal attention to him and the on-goings in his life. The cleansing energy of the sea will set the mood in a good vibe and allow Dad to relinquish the tensions of day-to-day. Plus, the thrill of picking sea-shells sends you home with beautiful mementos that can be displayed in your home to remind you of that special day with Dad. Better yet, capture that day with a wefie and present it to Dad in a frame decorated with the very shells the two of you picked together. It may be a simple gift, but it will hold a whole lot of meaning to Dad as he remembers the day with fondness.
At Work On A Terrarium
If Dad has a soft spot for plants and loves tending to his pots of glory at home, he will love this. Take him out to the florist to pick up some small plants such as colourful cacti or succulents, then masterfully arrange them in glass domes (or any glass vessel of your liking) atop a layer of pebbles, charcoal and soil. While he's at it and tapping into his creative side, Dad is unknowingly releasing his tension and tuning down his blood pressure to a more normal range. The psychologically therapeutic qualities of plants are no secret as they have been known to discreetly lift the mood and energy levels of people around them.
As you and Dad set about building your terrarium, you get to bond with him over a learning experience that is enriching, relaxing and promotes a higher state of well-being. At the end of it, Dad will also get a beautiful keepsake to remind him of the time you took to do something he loves with him, and that is a moment that Dad will hold dear always.
When was the last time you and Dad took a trip to the museum? This Father’s Day is a great opportunity to open up Dad’s world and show him a side of something new and something old, reminiscent of his childhood days in an innovative and chic way.
Strolling through the ancient corridors of the National Museum, you bear witness to themed exhibitions that intermingle the past, present and future for a trip of discovery and recollection that creates lasting impressions through the use of technological enhancements and artistic presentations. As Dad happily unlocks his memory recesses and indulges in reminiscing the days of yesteryear, you can share a most precious experience of walking right by his side down this memory lane.
Gifts of Love
Show you care in a conscientious way by dedicating attention to the little nuances – that wince when Dad stretches for the remote or that one-sided tilt as he reads the papers in his favourite chair. Given, Dad is no longer in mint condition having faced the compromises of time and age.
You don’t have to let him give in to the whims of aging, however, by directing some thought to his well-being and health.
For great gift ideas, explore our list of health and beauty supplements catered for Dad to celebrate the zest of life. Inspired by traditional botanical medicine the world over, these products combine nature’s best with the science of good nutrition to deliver goodness you can taste and wellness you can feel.
Dad will certainly appreciate the thought and enjoy the freedom of living his life to the fullest without the limitations of aches and pains. Plus, with our special Parent’s Day promotion, you may even get the chance to whisk both Mom and Dad off for a relaxing getaway!
We have been singing the praises of working Mums with such ardour that we seem to have overlooked their better halves – the working Dads. We have been so preoccupied with upholding gender equality for women that we somewhat forget to extend that same courtesy to our handsome counterparts and commend the men who share our load, making it possible for us to let loose our own inner girl-boss.
Both men and women face equal challenges and workload in today’s lifestyle, especially as the role of father is quickly taking a sharp turn away from its sole-breadwinner convention. This June, we take the time to remember, appreciate and celebrate the Dads and husbands who give their all with their own kind of Super.
Still Dad, But On New Wheels
As more Dads step up and strive to be good partners, good parents and successful professionals in their trades, their once work-only challenges have evolved to include family challenges as well. As they take on more responsibility on the home front with housework and being actively involved in raising a family alongside Mums, their days begin to fill with new sets of demands and requisites.
Come six ‘o clock, Dads are seen joining the swarm of Mums making their dash out the door. He sprints not for happy hour, but for the student/infant care centers to collect his ward.
By seven, Dad is a sight to behold, decked out in the latest baby carrier and jostling in the MRT as he enters dinner negotiations with Mum in a frantic slew of finger taps.
At eight, he is spotted in the suburbs ushering Daisy, the pet dog, along on her evening toilet break in slippers so his smothered feet can get a much-needed breather from a day of being cooped up in business shoes.
Back home again, he continues navigating a series of chores and daily rituals before he serenades Mum with a symphony of snores by midnight.
24 Hours in a Day, Not 24 Hours of Energy
Men are seldom ones to talk, and discussing the challenges of working Dads is still often reserved for the Mums or contemplative blog writers like us. Plus, it’s hardly manly to air the woes of work-family responsibility and furious ambition, especially when the Mums barely flinch and seem to have it under control.
But it doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom between our forever-giving super Dads as they run themselves ragged trying to keep up, because we have just the care package for them to cope with the daily grind of today’s life.
Thoughtfully selected to help our beloved modern-day Daddies live life to the fullest, Kinohimitsu’s products possesses the nourishing goodness from age-old botanical medicine traditions and boast no preservatives, chemical or hormone inclusions.
Leading the list is a product to strengthen his eyes as he keeps them glued to the computer screen in his climb to success. Eyebright protects the retina and nourishes the eyes – especially good for prolonged exposure to electronic devices with its patented lutein and beta-carotene compounds.
Next in line, Sky Grass and Bio-Booster aid in building immunity so that our dear working Dad can keep up and does not have to drop out of the race because he’s caught the flu. Adding to that, Bio-Booster’s digestive health support boosts the body’s absorption power so it can sink its teeth into all the beneficial nutrients it needs to keep the race going.
We have given bone and joint health a good thought as well with JointPro360 and Marine Collagen, which work in tandem to improve flexibility, relieve arthritic pain and support bone health while making sure these super Dads can always put their best face forward with a healthy, glowing complexion that speaks of good health and a rich, wholesome life.
As with Moms, Dads too have their work cut out for them, but receive far lesser adulation and praise. A father’s role today is a hectic one fraught with family demands, work demands and even social demands. This often relegates personal focus to the back burner, resulting in a Dad spiffed up with rumpled disarray that will give even Bigfoot a run for his money.
The dishevelled persona usually comes with a personalised soundtrack of groans, grunts and heaves as once nimble joints protest at the most menial of tasks – bending to tie the little one’s shoelaces; squatting to fix a loose chain on the bicycle for Sunday spree; or lifting the bamboo pole to hang up a load of washed laundry.
Ladies, if your Man is worn and a little worse for wear, an intervention is in order – because a happy man will make sure his lady is happy and your happiness is an indulgence that should never wane!
How to make Daddy happy?
That suave, agile, 26-year-old that could coordinate an impressive dribble and slide tackle need not be a figment of reminiscences that hides behind dark circles and creaky knees. A healthy man is a happy man and feeling good is looking good!
So how do we get there?
Foster a Healthy Mind
We all know that an idle mind is a devil’s playground but a turmoiled one is far worse. In short, it’s ground zero in a well-being catastrophe.
Mental stress has a way of morphing into physical ailments to riddle us with annoying aches and pains. It also sneakily creeps onto the appearance and renders us ill-looking and worn out.
The best solution? Stop mulling! As the saying goes:
“Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but gets you nowhere”
The Kinohimitsu Be Sharp range is also a good counter attack to stress. It strives to improve focus and helps alleviate stress with botanical ingredients sourced from the world over. Adding to that, the fruity cheerful flavour of citrus high-fiving taste buds from the first sip is sure to put a smile on his face.
A Body Healthy, A Man Happy
A healthy man has no reason to frown and give in to the whims of aging. We can’t stop aging but we have cracked the code on aging gracefully. An active husband can better engage with the family and partake in games and activities with the kids and live a rich life.
Aches and pains can be a real downer to fun-filled living, curbing that adventurous spirit within. Not to worry, like we said, we got your back, so you can turn that frown upside down and turn your Man to tip-top because we have a host of natural, botanical goodies!
Maca Man – Translated, it’s the strength of a bear, stamina of a horse with the heart and soul of your Man. Supporting a range of functions dedicated to men, this handy drink improves muscle strength and stamina for the long days at work and longer nights at home (wink wink).
Joint Pro 360 – Help your Man go the distance in every of life’s races, which he chooses to run. Packed full of glucosamine to rebuild connective tissues and chondroitin to increase flexibility and correct posture, it ensures your Man no longer needs to be benched and watch the show from the side lines because of restrictive aches and pains.
Stem Cell – Many men dislike the hassle of exaggerated beauty regimes and think it non masculine to dedicate care and time to their looks. Thankfully, the triple-forced Stem Cell range targets the body, the skin and the mind at one go! This genie in a bottle enables cell rejuvenation and renewal while enhancing vitality – by alleviating aches and pain, improving metabolism and joint health and combating a decreasing memory, with patented botanical recipes and techniques. Coupled with the Collagen Men series, fine lines and tired, sagging skin take a rain cheque and no longer see the light of day.
Perfect a Positive Outlook
Despite our best efforts, at times, life pulls no punches, and in such times, understanding and support from loved ones makes all the difference to continue to reach for the stars.
Help each other stay positive and for certain the days will be lit with sunshine and smiles. There is no better way to steer towards blue skies instead of grey clouds than to laugh off the stress and burdens of daily life. Laughter is still the age-old “best” medicine and on this point, we don’t beg to differ. A happy heart fortified with love, true to its nature will radiate beauty in the face.
In fact, it was Roald Dahl who said:
“If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely”.
We can all agree that parents easily have the toughest “job” in the world. Other than working hard to ensure that you do not go hungry, they are often our role model when it comes to life skills such as manners, useful techniques (riding a bike, learning how to swim etc.), and teaching you how to defend and survive the world out there. As we grow up gradually through the years, our parents age too; don’t you think it’s time you turn things around and start taking care of your parents?
When was the last time you did something new together?
Travelling time is one of the best moments you can bond as a family. Enjoy the sumptuous meals and breathtaking sceneries together and build unforgettable memories!

Mother /ˈmʌðə/ - a female parent.
A mother can also hold many roles in your lives, be it at home or in the society. Every individual’s motherhood journey can be vastly different, and we have consolidated the 5 types of mothers (from friends/acquaintances) we have met thus far. Does any of the following characteristics sound familiar to you?
We present to you, at the very top of our list: Mrs Know It All. They seemed to have a solution to all questions, circumstances and situations. Often eager to provide remedy to get their child out of a sticky situation or hiccups, we can always depend on Mrs Know-it-all to solve issues for us!
To the authoritative mothers, they prefer setting boundaries and rules to ensure their child treads on the safe side. She is very firm and strict with curfews and often expects their child/children to be prim and proper at all times to meet her expectations.
The opposite of The Strict Mom, Soft Hearted Mama are usually pushovers in front of their kids. You can spot a Soft Hearted Mama by the way her kids bosses her around just because she is unable to say no. Her greatest fear is a crying child, so she’ll do anything just to pacify her child, even if it meant giving in to unreasonable requests.
With gender equality on the table, mothers have to juggle with more roles in and out of the family. Time is gold to them and they are always very resourceful. You can hardly see busy and working moms around, and even if they do, they will be on their laptops or mobile phones most of the time as they are constantly working on the go.
Restriction is never her kind of thing. Laid back and letting the kids explore the world is what she yearns for, so you will see her children playing with dirt and exploring new terrains. She does not panic when her child spikes a fever or scrapes a knee but ensures that the kids are not in any danger.
No matter what category our moms fall within, one thing we can be sure is that their love for us is no lesser than the rest of the categories.
How important is your mother to you? Share with us what makes your mom a #superlady and stand a chance to pamper her with a $150 wellness hamper from Kinohimitsu!
