Unilab Ba Yan?
This is not directly about money but in the long run, this will affect your capacity to earn a living.
A recent TV commercial has caught my eye. The TVC of Unilab encourages consumers to ask important questions when it comes to buying vitamins and medicines. Here’s the TVC:
Safe ba yan? obviously refers to the safety of the drug or vitamins. There are so many drugs in the market, some are from backyard manufacturers, and we need to ensure that the medicines we’re taking are safe.
Affordable ba yan? Most mommies hold the purse. They want to get the best value for their money. Prices of Unilab products are very affordable, many of them a fraction of the cost of multinational counterparts. A 500-mg tablet of Ponstan (mefenamic acid), a product of Pfizer, cost P21.82. Unilab’s counterpart, Dolfenal, us just P18.30 for a 500-mg tablet. Almost 17 percent difference!
Subok na ba yan? Unilab has always been proud of the many studies conducted for the safety and efficacy of its products. This is the reason why I don’t take drugs or vitamins from the US (like pasalubongs of relatives). Drugs manufactured by US pharma companies are often suited for the American people. Filipinos have different needs. With Unilab, I am assured that it has conducted studies to ensure that the drugs are fit for the Filipinos.
Unilab ba yan? This should be the buzzword for all Filipinos. Filipinos should make it a point to ask who the manufacture of a product is, whether it’s a drug, shoes, clothes, etc. The reputation of the manufacturer guarantees consumers that they will get the best and highest quality. By asking “Unilab ba yan?” we are assured that we are getting only the best.
Many probably don’t realize it but Unilab has been part of the lives of millions of Filipino families for so many decades now. I myself am an Enervon kid, starting with Enervon Syrup when I was in elementary years. I remember that Enervon Syrup was a regular major sponsor of Eat Bulaga’s Little Miss Philippines! And now that I’m all grown-up, I still take Enervon (this time, the tablet).
Biogesic is another classic Unilab product. It has almost become a generic name for headache medicines, just like we think of Colgate when we say toothpaste. I don’t remember a time in my life when my family used another headache medicine. Basta sakit ng ulo, it’s always Biogesic.
There are so many Unilab medicines that have made a difference in our lives–Revicon, Allerin, Neo-Aspilet (which is now renamed Neo-Kiddielets), pH Care, Neozep, Decolgen, Medicol, Myra E, etc. Just imagine the number of people whose lives were significantly improved because of Unilab products.
It’s easy to take our health for granted. Just like anybody else, we think we’re invincible until we get sick. But it’s important to take care of our health and the health of our family. Like I said, our health affects our capacity to earn a living, Without a good health, there will also be no good health.
