The cough and cold Season here in our country will still continue up to February. Every night till the early morning, you would still feel the chilly wind that makes you want to wear a jacket and get under your comforter just to make yourself a bit warm. Then during morning, you'll be exposed to the scorching heat of the sun which is actually unbearable at times. These weather and temperature changes can greatly affect every person's health plus the pollution that we face outside our home. What's even scarier is the fact that being around so many people, you may even get a virus or a bacteria that is very easy to catch once you have a cough and a cold due to impaired immune system.

But no need to fret, there are ways on how you can prevent these illnesses. Here are the basic tips on how we could avoid getting this common illnesses:

1, Eating healthy food such as fruits and vegetables or simply having a balanced meal. 
2, Hydrate yourself with lots of water.
3, Have enough sleep,

If these basic tips wouldn't be enough, you might want to try further management such as:

4. Taking Ascorbic Acid to boost your immune system.
5. Wear protective masks that can work as barrier to our polluted surroundings.

You might say that the last option is over the top, but mind you, it may be a bit of a cliche but Prevention is really better than cure. With that being said, I am very happy to share to you a great product that has recently been brought here in our country so that Filipinos may experience protection at its finest.

Innonix Technologies, Inc has developed a one of a kind product that could protect users not only against dusts, air irritants and allergens, but also to the very harmful bacteria and viruses. Their anti-viral mask, RespoKare, is the only face mask approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) that is said to have protective layers that neutralizes airborne germs that can cause a lot of health issues to everyone.

How does this mask work exactly? Well, it has 4 layers with different functions. For the outermost layer, it traps and denatures the cell structures of bacteria and viruses, thanks to the spun-bond PPE with a hydrophilic and acidic coating. The second layer is considered as the germ-killing layer that effectively neutralizes all airborne germs using its dyed rayon with metallic ions. While the third layer is a non-active layer of melt-blown PPE that filters the finer particles. Lastly, the spun-bond PPE layer is the final barrier that ensures that prolonged skin contact would never result to irritations, etc.

As an anti-viral face mask, RespoKare can proudly say that it can prevent wearers from the highly dangerous diseases such as the H1N1 flu, SARS and the MERS-CoV, etc. These scary diseases can easily be caught by a non-protected individual which can be spread to a whole lot of people causing outbreaks. With that fact, the World Health Organization (WHO) together with other government officials, recommend to wear face masks as standard procedure once an outbreak occurs.

This would really be a very helpful protective equipment to us, especially to our kids that are more prone to getting illnesses. I'm very much interested to try it out soon and hopefully you will also be willing to try it out for your whole family to breathe freely without the thought that you might be exposed to a lot of harmful germs. RespoKare is now available here in the Philippines in over 1000 Mercury Drug Stores nationwide.

It is distributed by the IDS Medical Systems Philippines on behalf of the Innonix Technologies, Inc. It is also available in other countries such as Singapore, Hongkong and Malaysia. I highly recommend that you give Respokare a try as it is the only anti-viral face mask cleared by the US FDA because all the materials used are classified as "Generally Recognized as Safe".

  1. I never really use face masks when going out, but it's different these days. The viruses are stronger and well, it's just better to be safe. Thanks for the info about this mask!

  2. How much are each of these special masks? They can be expensive which may be difficult for many of us. And remember, it is only sound (infection-control-wise) to use a face mask for eight hours, after which you need to change already.

  3. I heard of this brand before but never tried it yet. Looks like its safe and according to the spec.

  4. This such a cool mask but it also sort of scares me that the time is nearing that we're going to need this for everyday life :(

  5. It's good to be safe than sorry. But like what Fred said, it's not advisable to keep reusing a mask.

  6. It's nice to see it has a very high filtration rate. It also helps that its anti bacterial.

  7. I used face masks only once when SARS brokeout!
    I'm just praying no situation like that arises ever again...
    Anyways, being prepared for worst is good. Thanks for the review.

  8. This is totally awesome. Finally, a US FDA-Cleared anti-viral face mask in the Philippines!

  10. During spring, I always wear such masks since I have pollen allergies. It is a great, informational post.

  11. Singaporeans will need this every year during the haze period! Maybe I will get them one day to see what is the difference!
