You know you're getting old when you appreciate healthy food. I'm quite a fan of healthy drinks and D.I.Y homemade fruit shakes whenever I have time to make one. Whenever we are at the grocery, international brands can really capture your attention when it comes to packaging and unique flavor since they are not locally produced. But how about getting to know local products that are equally healthy (but of different nutritional substance) with that of the international flavors but way more cheaper?
Take for example the Bignay Juice Concentrate which is locally produced here in Camarines Sur and the international Old Orchard Apple Cranberry. The color of the Bignay juice when mixed proportionally with water looks actually the same with that of the apple cranberry. If you like cranberry juice then I think you'll also like the Bignay Juice.
What are the health benefits of Bignay? "Bignay (Antidesma bunius), also know as “bugnay” or “burnay” has Vitamin B-complex content and resveratrol that acts as an antioxidant; may reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, and bacterial diseases. It is also good for digestion."
