Ryan Agoncillo wears different hats. Aside from being a father, he’s also an award-winning television host (he’s an Aliw Awards Hall of Famer for hosting), an events host, a photographer, an athlete, an actor and commercial model. His daily routine begins as early as 5:00 or 6:00 in the morning to run, then go to work as television host of “Eat Bulaga” from Monday to Satuday and go to various tapings for his other TV shows on GMA Network, fulfill other commitments like event hosting, shooting TV commercials, TV guestings, and not to mention his photography stints, competing in drifting events and going to the gym to maintain his physique as one of the country’s top endorsers/TV hosts.

He goes home every night to his number one priority: spending quality time with his wife Judy Ann Santos and his children Johanna Louis (Yohan) and Juan Luis (Lucho).

But having a jam-packed daily routine comes with a prize sometimes like headache and body pain. But Ryan doesn’t let pain get in the way and ensures that he creates super moments with his son Lucho and his family with the help of five times faster (Paracetamol) Panadol®

This is why GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), the global leading healthcare company, has chosen Ryan Agoncillo to become the brand ambassador of Panadol.

During the launch held recently at New World Hotel, Jeoffrey Yulo (General Manager – Consumer Healthcare, GSK Philippines) explained why the company picked the Eat Bulaga host as the perfect celebrity to share the “pain-free moments with family” advocacy campaign:

Yulo emphasized that for Filipinos, family comes first, that is why when pain strikes, quality time with the family is the first to suffer.


“Seven out of 10 Filipinos suffer from regular headaches. The time wasted on dealing with this kind of pain should have been better spent on more important things like quality time with the family,” he said.

“This dilemma encourages GSK to continue providing a fast and effective solution like Panadol to pain sufferers. What makes Panadol with Optizorb® truly different from other branded and generic paracetamol products is that it is the only product to contain Optizorb®, which has revolutionized the way paracetamol tablets are dispersed in the body, so it allows paracetamol to reach the bloodstream more quickly and be carried to where it acts to fight pain, five times faster,” he added.


Panadol with Optizorb® is a type of paracetamol caplet that works five times faster than regular formulation. It contains the same amount of paracetamol (500 mg) found in Panadol, so you can feel confident in its ability to relieve pain such as headache and fever.

(Paracetamol) Panadol® with Optizorb® comes in 36 x 10s dispenser box and a 10s pack. Each tablet has an SRP of PHP 4.00 and is available at all leading drugstores nationwide.

This year, Panadol brings more focus to help take away the pain for faster recovery and more super moments with the ones you love. The new TV commercial for the brand featuring Ryan and his son Lucho brings this life-affirming message to the fore. And we all know that Ryan is a dedicated father and he spends as much time as he can with his family.


As a sportsman who is into motorcycles and triathlons, Ryan is no stranger to aches and pain. But he doesn’t let any kind of discomfort like headache get in the way of a quality time with his equally energetic son, making their moments together pain-free. But whenever pain or headache strikes, he puts his trust on Panadol. And like a true superhero, he has the power of quick recovery in the eyes of his son.

“My family is my top priority. Even if I get busy with work and my other pursuits, I make sure that I get to spend quality with my wife and my kids. But, sometimes, because of my workload, I suffer from terrible headaches,” Ryan relates. “Fortunately, there’s Panadol. It offers fast relief to make my super moments with my family pain-free! Indeed, when pain is gone, life takes its place.”

Ryan spearheaded the advocacy by leading the Panadol Pledge:


Members of the press and some bloggers also made the pledge of spending more quality and pain-free moments with their family by putting their photo on the commitment wall:
