“Kasi kaka-quit ko lang ng smoking,” Lorna Tolentino explains her looking more youthful these days.
The 52-year-old actress adds, “Mag-wa-one month na sa August 14.”
Asked whether she’s having a hard time adjusting to her non-smoking lifestyle, she says, “Ay no, hindi naman talaga ako ganun… I’m not really talaga sobrang sobrang smoker.”
Right now, Lorna is taking supplements such as vitamin B1, B complex, glutathione, and mangosteen and malunggay capsules.
“Siyempre nung nag-50 ako, mas iniisip ko na mas tumagal pa.”
“Kasi siyempre, 'di ba, gone too soon si Rudy [Fernandez], kaya siyempre kailangan mas mahaba pa, lalo na because of my apo, yun ang nag-i-inspire sa akin,” she avers.
She is talking about Lyla Victoria, the two-year-old daughter of her elder son Raphael who, according to her, is in "makulit" stage.
“She’s okay, actually yung kanya intellectual [maturity] ano, something na pinapaano sa mga doctor, for four years old na.”
She also complements Leana, Lyla’s mother, “Talagang kinu-congratulate ko si Leana, because she’s a teacher, talagang mas kaya niya i-guide.”
About Lyla entering showbiz when the time comes, Lorna says, “Commercial kung meron, oo tatangapin ko.”
STEM CELL THERAPY. Lorna Tolentino reveals she has undergone stem cell therapy to address her health concerns.
“Actually, nakatulong siya nang malaki sa scoliosis ko because of the joint therapy na ini-inject sa akin.
“Before kasi lagi kong tina-tap yung dito sa side ng legs ko dahil meron nang parang pain, parang may pinched nerve, but now okay na siya,” Lorna relates.
Meanwhile, Edu Manzano is another showbiz personality who backs up the stem cell therapy theory, saying, “You know, it’s not always about youth.
“Unlike what people see about stem cell, instead of retaining your youthful look, it actually addresses certain ailments,” the actor stresses.
