Edu Manzano & Lorna Tolentino Make the Switch to Quality Generic Medicine Available at Watsons

Savings or quality? That's a question that is echoed by many Filipinos when it comes to generic medicines. For families on a tight budget, healthcare often takes a backseat to more basic needs like food and household utilities. A recent study done by Nielsen confirmed that an average Filipino family spends only five percent (5%) of its income for medicines and health-related services.

With Watsons Generics, Filipinos no longer need to choose between SAVINGS and QUALITY because customers are assured all generic drugs sold there are manufactured by trusted pharmaceutical partners and undergo a five-step quality assurance process. In addition, shoppers also get as much as 80 percent in savings!

Danilo Chiong, Health Business Unit Director of Watsons said that they aim to help families by giving them more healthcare options and the ability to buy affordable, high-quality medicines. "This will not just give them access to quality healthcare products, they will also be able to focus their finances on other important matters."

The Watsons Generics line includes maintenance medicines for diabetes, hypertension, and cholesterol; antibiotics for fighting off common bacteria; dietary supplements to enhance the skin, help slow down aging, and maintain overall wellness; basic vitamins; oral analgesics; and other over the counter medicines. 

"In the Philippines, Watsons has always been known for our branded beauty products," acknowledged Karen Fabres, Watsons Senior Marketing Manager. "But, with the launch of Watsons Generics, our customers now don't have to go elsewhere to buy their medicine."

Following the successful Switch and Save campaigns featuring Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Patty Laurel-Filart, Iya Villania-Arellano, and Christian Bautista, the brand now has its own Watsons Generics ambassadors in Edu Manzano and Lorna Tolentino

Through Edu and Lorna, two of the most respected names in the Philippine entertainment industry, Watsons aims to educate Filipinos about different options that can help address the gaps in health literacy in the country. More than their influence, Edu and Lorna are also role models when it comes to being proactive about taking care of one's health.

Yesterday, the two celebrities, proudly wearing Watsons uniforms, surprised shoppers at the SM Mall of Asia branch and helped people choose the best value products particularly at the pharmacy section. "As we age, we have to take extra care of our bodies, so I make sure that I have a stock of Watsons Multivitamins + Iron regularly to boost my immune system. In the mornings, I have the Calamansi Flavored Psyllium Fiber that's tangy and good for digestion," shared Edu.

For his body pains, he revealed he takes Watsons Generics Paracetamol especially when he's tired and lacks sleep from tapings. Edu also recommended the Cranberry capsules that are suitable for urinary tract infection, and Luyang Dilaw for overall wellness.

Like him, Lorna also takes vitamins regularly to boost her immune system. "I take Ascorbic Acid, especially now na tag-ulan dahil mas madali tayo magkasakit and siyempre kapag puyatan sa taping or shooting," she disclosed.     

The grandslam actress furthermore credits Watsons Glutathione, Vitamin E, and Hyaluron Collagen Powder in maintaining her youthful, glowing skin. "Kailangan healthy and beautiful ka rin from the inside."

Just like these Watsons' celebrity ambassadors, we, too, can maximize our purchasing power so we can properly take care of our and our family's health while also getting to spend more on the things we really want in life. I've already Switched and Saved a long time ago. How about you? :)
