WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?

With all of the legitimate concern around the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), consumers are scrambling for viable solutions to keep themselves and their families healthy. There are certainly a number of marketplace innovations—and even some tried and true food-based solutions—that can help foster your well-being. Here are a few noteworthy examples, from gadgets to groceries, understanding shoppers need to ascertain any shipping delays amid the current chaos.

GermAway Handheld UVC Surface Sterilizer Wand (www.CureUV.com)
I found a nifty portable light-based technology solution that can keep you healthy while on-the-go. The GermAwayUV Surface Sterilizer Wand is a travel-friendly handheld wand that uses natural UV-C light to sanitize and disinfect surfaces no matter where you are: at home, a hotel room, a restaurant, a doctor’s waiting room–anywhere germs are sure to lurk (which is pretty much everywhere)!

This device uses the same advanced UV-C light technology that hospitals have been using to sterilize equipment for over 30 years—but now the technology is available to everyone at economical price points. This wand will actually eliminate bacteria, viruses, fungus, molds and a host of other pathogens! The Ultraviolet (UV-C) light technology is a really efficient and effective way to keep things germ free, and it’s certainly a better option than using harmful and messy chemicals to keep things sanitary.

SOS Hydration Dehydration Avoidance & Treatment Drink Mix (www.SOSHydration.com)
One science-driven advancement is SOS Hydration—a pleasant-tasting, hydration-accelerating drink mix uniquely engineered to combat mild to moderate dehydration. This powder-based, immune system booster can help people fight an infection and recover faster since if proffers hydration equivalent to an I.V. drip—helping the body rehydrate fully three-times faster than by drinking water alone.  Given the extent to which COVID-19 and influenza-induced dehydration is a significant concern for those who are sick, often undermining treatment and recovery, the importance of managing the issue should not be underestimated. In fact, if not properly attended to, illness-driven dehydration can lead to further debilitation of one’s health and well-being—sometimes in very medically significant ways.

Limoneira Lemons Ignite the Immune System (www.Limoneira.com)
Coronavirus aside, influenza (“the flu”) season is in full swing—but there are many natural opportunities to keep the germs at bay! One easy and tasty way to lean on food-based medicine is with Limoneira Lemons, which are not only loaded with vitamin C, but also boast an array of other health benefits. In addition to its antioxidant qualities, vitamin C plays a crucial role in helping the immune system to adapt to new threats and conditions. A deficiency in vitamin C can result in impaired immunity and higher susceptibility to infections.

According to Limoneira, “Adding vitamin C to the diet both protects and helps heal the body from infections. In addition, vitamin C improves the absorption of iron from plant-based foods and helps the immune system work properly to protect the body from disease. In fact, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force doesn’t support vitamin and mineral supplements to ward off disease, with the federal government’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans advising that people should get most of their nutrients from food.”

So, on the bright side, Limoneira lemons are certainly an easy, tasty and inexpensive way to squeeze your way to healthier days.
