Last July 1st at Santiago restaurant in Blue Ridge, Quezon City, I was invited along with other bloggers for a discussion about Atienza Naturale’s premium food supplements. The talk given by Dr. Reiner Mozo consisted of information about ATIENZA NATURALE TURMERIC CAPSULE and product info and studies that were conducted to gather proofs of effectiveness of the ATIENZA NATURALE MALUNGGAY CAPSULE.
Atienza Naturale is owned by Kim Atienza or better known as Kuya Kim and his sister Angela Lei Atienza Valdepeñas, established in 2011 with the mission of providing Filipinos with high-quality affordable health and wellness herbal-based dietary supplements and skincare products.
ATIENZA NATURALE MALUNGGAY CAPSULE
Malunggay is often known as Moringa Oleifera or the wonder gulay (wonder vegetable). It is available everywhere in the Philippines, easy to grow and harvest, and doesn’t take much space. Trees for Life International has to say this about this wonder gulay:
“Gram-for-gram Malunggay (Moringa oleifera) leaves contain:
More Vitamin A than Carrots,
More Calcium than Milk,
More Iron than Spinach,
More Vitamin C than Oranges,
More Potassium than Bananas”
Malunggay leaves is also rich in potent antioxidants from Vitamins A, C, and E. Antioxidants has anti-aging capabilities and prevents diseases like cancer, arthritis, kidney and heart diseases. Due to its high Calcium content, it is a Galactogogue which means it is best recommended for lactating mothers for producing more milk thus it is referred to as “mother’s best friend”.
It helps lower blood pressure, relieves pain from migraines, headaches, and rheumatism. Aside from the heart and kidney, the liver and spleen problems can also be treated.
Here’s the good news! All the benefits of Malunggay leaves can now be enjoyed through each capsule of Atienza Naturale which contains 500mg of pure and fresh Malunggay that is encapsulated using vegetables. That’s a convenient way of consuming your daily recommended Vitamins, Calcium, Iron, and antioxidants.
Studies from DOST and Food and Nutrition Research institute has provided stamp of approval and backed up the claims of the wonder gulay. In addition, physicians from Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center (OMMC)’s Department of Internal Medicine and Intensive Care Unit from Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM) also conducted studies using Atienza Naturale Malunggay. The studies focused on the effects of malunggay and its role as a natural alternative for regulating and lowering blood sugar. According to physicians Rainier Nery Mozo & Imelda Caole-Ang, an extract derived from malunggay was essential in reducing Hemoglobin A1c which is a key indicator in the blood glucose level, in a control group of 60 patients at the Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center. The study showed a mean reduction of 0.6 percent in the blood glucose of involved patients after regular intake of malunggay capsules.
Atienza Naturale Malunggay is available at all Mercury Drugstores and other leading drugstores nationwide.

The other product featured was the Atienza Naturale Turmeric Capsule which is also encapsulated in vegetables and has 500mg of pure and fresh Turmeric powder. It is scientifically referred to as Curcuma Longa and known by the name “Queen of Spices,” as it has a sharp taste, a pepper-like aroma and the golden color makes it look like royalty.
