“Natutuwa nga ako na ako ang naging brand ambassador because I believe in the product. It’s such a blessing that you don’t have to try the product because it’s already a part of my lifestyle. Nasa buhay ko na most especially itong panahon ng COVID na ito. I feel so blessed na ako ang napiling ambassador for Yamang Bukid.” — versatile actress Carmi Martin, Sept 18 media conference

Yamang Bukid Healthy Products Inc. (YBHPI) opens the final quarter of the year with a major celebration as it formally welcomes veteran actress Carmi Martin into the family as official brand ambassador of Insulin Plant Tea – the company’s latest healthy product.

YBHPI is the company behind the country’s leading turmeric tea brand, the Yamang Bukid Turmeric 10-in-1.

Yamang Bukid Insulin Plant Tea is made from the leaves of authentic insulin plants (Costus igneus) grown in pristine farming conditions in Palawan. The all-natural wellness drink has no other ingredients aside from dried insulin leaves, so consumers are assured that it’s safe and is of nature’s best.

Yamang Bukid Insulin Plant Tea is the first of its kind to be given a Certificate of Product Registration (CPR) by the Philippines Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The product has undergone revaluation and certification from FDA and passed various tests so the quality and safety of the product is guaranteed.

Aside from lowering glucose levels, insulin plant (Costus igneus) is also naturally rich in phytochemicals that function as antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory. Insulin plant  has long been consumed in various countries such as in India, due to its anti-diabetic properties as it is also found beneficial to people with obesity, and other metabolic disorders.

After much deliberation, the top executives of brand unanimously agreed that Martin is the best personality to represent the product to the Philippine market as she is widely known and respected in the industry not only for her impressive body of work as one of the most  respected and versatile film and television actresses but also her dynamic, healthy lifestyle.

For almost five decades, Carmi has been one of the enduring actresses in the landscape of Philippine entertainment as she is widely recognized as the First Lady Of Philippine Comedy after starring in the most iconic and legendary television series like Chicks-To-Chicks and Abangan Ang Susunod Na Kabanata as well as her recent online hit series GVBoys.   

“I have been a long-time user of the Yamang Bukid’s Turmeric 10-in-1 Tea and I am happy that the company has another healthy product that I could use in Insulin Plant Tea. I am very grateful for the trust of Yamang Bukid and I am honored to be the official brand ambassador of Insulin Plant Tea,” says Martin.

Yamang Bukid Insulin Plant Tea is a great development for many Filipinos, as diabetes and other health problems caused by high blood sugar continue to be among the top causes of death in the country as health experts have raised concerns over this health problem, calling diabetes a silent epidemic. In 2020 for instance, diabetes-linked complications killed 37,265 Filipinos, up from 32,991 in annual average between 2015-2019, data from Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) showed.
