The home-grown company Moringa Green Health (MGH), which has already given consumers several innovative products, has developed another novel product, the Malunggay One Shot (MOS). The product is being recommended as an effective treatment for persons suffering from asthma and rhinitis.
The Malunggay One Shot (MOS) is hailed by many as a remarkable invention, joining other MGH’s world-class products like the kalunggay (moringa)-based beverages (wine, tea, and juice), vitamins, and personal care products.
Liza S. Ordas, MGH production manager, said MOS was also formulated for consumption by persons with diabetes since the sweetener used in the product is sourced from coconut.
She said the solution is an effective cure for asthma. “A person who is having an asthma attack could find an immediate remedy from Malunggay One Shot,” she said.
It is also best for persons suffering from Rhinitis or frequent sneezing especially in early morning. The formula can also be used to treat persons with allergies, cough, and cold. Ordas also said that babies who have a cold can be given a drop of the liquid formula daily since the solution has a mucolytic effect and is considered safe.
In Legazpi City, the product can be bought at the regional office of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).
Orders can be made at the office of Moringa Green Health at 548 Opal St., FilovilleSubd., Brgy. Calauag, Naga City with telephone numbers (054) 472. 0780 and 0943.678.9371.

NAGA CITY — Under the national government’s priority infrastructure program for 2013, the main road passing through barangays Concepcion Pequeña, Concepcion Grande, and Del Rosario, here, will be expanded into a four-lane highway similar to those found in Metro Manila.
The plan will be undertaken by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), which will add 6.36 meters to the width of the 4.69-kilometer Rotunda-Del Rosario stretch. The DPWH saw the necessity of constructing the four-lane artery based on traffic count and incidence of accidents.
An option to proceed with expropriation will be considered should the property owners contest or oppose the project, according to legal officers of the DPWH.
“Traffic density and increased incidence of traffic accidents along the identified stretch calls for a four-lane facility,” DPWH engineers told a public consultation held last March 6, this year, at the Barangay Chapel in Concepcion Grande in this city.
The Rotunda-Del Rosario major thoroughfare, which has been included in the reclaiming of easement and widening, is a part of Daang Maharlika.
DPWH Assistant Regional Director Jesus Salmo, in his letter to Mayor John G. Bongat, said the project, which is the government agency’s priority infrastructure program for the year 2013, is duly funded.
The budget of P100 million is only an initial outlay. It may not even be enough to cover all claims for compensation if there are buildings within the RROW. It was assured however that funding will not be a problem as it has been identified as priority project by the DPWH Secretary himself.
As basis for compensation for the structures/improvements on the road right of way (RROW), the DPWH will adopt the zonal value set by the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) or the assessment to be recommended by an appraisal committee.
Compensation does not cover public utility companies; the cost of the transfer of poles, cables, and lines will be absorbed by these firms.
“The project aims to widen the said highway by 12.70 meters (6.35 meters per side) and make it a four-lane avenue, with provision for shoulder, sidewalk and drainage,” Salmo said.
City Budget Officer Frank Mendoza, who was sent by Mayor Bongat to the consultation, said the additional lane measures 3.35 meters, shoulder is 1.50 meters and the sidewalk with lateral drainage is 1.50 meters, acquiring an over-all width of 6.35 meters for one side or 12.70 meters for both sides.
Mendoza observed that “per existing plans, there’s no provision for restoration of trees since the space available for this purpose will only be 0.15 meters per side.”
Once the project is started, estimated construction period is 240 days or around eight months.
A power cooperative here was able to reduce electricity rate by P0.67 per kilowatt-hour (KW) in February now that it is sourcing power within the region.
Emmanuel Rojo, spokesperson of the Camarines Sur II Electric Cooperative (Casureco II), said that previously their power was sourced outside the region.
To date, the power coop has stopped sourcing its power from the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market (WESM) and instead now buys from the Bac-Man Geothermal Plant in the boundary of Albay and Sorsogon provinces.
Rojo said the power rate cut became possible because they paid less for line rental because it is just within the region, reducing the charges by an average of P0.67/KW in all types of consumers.
Without the other charges included in the so-called bundled rate, Casureco II buys electricity from BacMan at P4.8174/KW while WESM charged the power coop P5.4725/KW.
