The uHoo Indoor Air Quality Monitor: life changing decisions come in small packages

In these unprecedented times, wearing a mask outdoors has been scientifically proven to help lessen the odds for contracting harmful viruses that can lead to sickness. However, once you return to the safety of your own home and remove that mask, you want to ensure that your indoor air is also safe.

We are not just talking about bacteria and viruses you may be bringing home – but the actual circulating indoor air can be a potential hotspot for bacteria and viruses to propagate. Add carbon monoxide from old leaky pipes, carcinogens from cooking indoors, mold that forms from damp towels left alone, and more. The traditional solution would be to buy a number of sensors scattered across the home, but as we have entered the age of the Internet of Things, there is, as what many will say, an app for that.

Resembling an insulated tumbler for hot drinks, the uHoo indoor air quality monitor is an interesting little device that measures the air quality of an enclosed space. The sleek device connects to your WiFi network and transmits data to a companion app (both iOS and Android compatible) to give real-time reporting on 9 different air quality parameters that include volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), fine dust particles (PM2.5), ozone, and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) as well as other more traditional measurements for temperature, air pressure, and humidity.

Out of the box, uHoo wins the minimalist packaging award for being really tight – all it contains is a small welcome card, the actual device and a USB cable with a wall plug. Setting the device to sync with the local WiFi is done via the app, which you have to download from the Google Play Store or App Store. Once it connects to your WiFi, all you really need to do is wait for about a minute as it gathers data and that’s pretty much it!

As the device measures your air quality it also makes concrete recommendations to improve your air quality. The uHoo app comes with a patent-pending virus index that lists down acceptable thresholds for indoor air quality that helps you to minimize virus risk. For instance, the more people are inside a small space, CO2 levels increase as this is the air expelled by people. High CO2 levels indicate a lack of fresh air and also contribute to fatigue and migraine. Thus, it is important to introduce ventilation so that air can be circulated properly. This can be done by adjusting your home’s HVAC or by simply opening your windows or doors to let fresh air in.

It is important to note that the uHoo indoor air quality monitor is a tool to help you monitor, identify and alert you of any issues so that you can take the appropriate action. This information always keeps you informed so that you can make good decisions that have lasting effects on your overall quality of life.

uHoo is a Singapore-based leading global environmental health platform. It was founded in 2014 and has been growing rapidly since, tackling a $180B global air quality market. uHoo is present in over 40 countries, with strong demand from private homes, governments, schools, hospitals, hotels, malls, kitchens, and offices in North America, Europe, and Asia.

Improve reproductive health and have a healthy sex life, too

We’ll never get tired of saying that Health is Wealth. For us women, that includes our reproductive health and a healthy sex life, too.

One of the things we should look out for is bacterial vaginosis. Mayoclinic.org describes bacterial vaginosis as “a type of vaginal inflammation caused by the overgrowth of bacteria naturally found in the vagina, which upsets the natural balance. Bacterial vaginosis results from [an] overgrowth of one of several bacteria naturally found in your vagina. Usually, ‘good’ bacteria (lactobacilli) outnumber ‘bad’ bacteria (anaerobes). But if there are too many anaerobic bacteria, they upset the natural balance of microorganisms in your vagina and cause bacterial vaginosis.”

This imbalance causes symptoms such as unusual vaginal discharge, foul-smelling “fishy” vaginal odor, vaginal itching, and burning sensation during urination to manifest. And frankly, you don’t want to have any of these for your health and peace of mind in general, but also if you want to keep your relationship with your husband or partner healthy and happy.

To eliminate the symptoms of bacterial vaginosis, an antibacterial product called Ecovag may be able to help. It is a lactobacillus capsule that claims can significantly reduce the risk of bacterial vaginosis and effectively treat symptoms of vaginal discomfort.

The capsule is inserted deep into the vagina, kind of like a suppository, ideally right before bedtime to allow it to dissolve in the vagina as you sleep. It is taken for 6 to 8 consecutive days and promises to eliminate the symptoms of vaginosis.

Ecovag is a product imported from Denmark by Zeus Resources, Inc., a resource management company that provides marketing, operational and financial expertise to start-up businesses like Compact Pharmaceuticals, Corp., a local manufacturer that developed the sodium ascorbate brand Jewel-Cee and the new sildenafil citrate brand Hydenex.

Sildenafil, of course, is the medication that is most commonly known under the brand Viagra, which is used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension and also erectile dysfunction as one of its side effects is to increase blood flow into the penis during sexual stimulation.

Hydenex helps foster a stronger relationship between couples through an improved and healthier sex life.

Both Hydenex and Ecovag are now available in select drugstores in the country. Consult your doctor before buying Hydenex or Ecovag.

Boost your health and immune system with Jewel-Cee and Jewel-Zee Plus

Health is wealth, as it always should be. Even more so now when a lethal virus that we can’t seem to fight with traditional methods still lurks.

In times like these, prevention will always be better than cure and one way of protecting yourself from getting infected by viruses is by keeping your body’s immune system up.

Vitamin C is one of the most common and most accessible immune boosters. It’s a known anti-oxidant that helps your body get rid of harmful toxins or free radicals and protects the brain and nervous system from the detrimental effects of stress.

It is also a co-factor for collagen biosynthesis and carnitine metabolism, which help keep your body active and strong in fighting against a variety of diseases.

Aside from having a healthy diet where you can get Vitamin C from natural sources, such as fruits and vegetables, taking supplements also helps your body fight Vitamin C deficiency.

Jewel-Cee is the latest Vitamin C brand in the market that is perfect for daily intake.

It comes in 562.43mg sodium ascorbate capsules or equivalent to 500mg ascorbic acid, which is more than enough to complement the body’s daily need.

Manufactured by Compact Pharmaceuticals, a renowned local company based in Valenzuela, and distributed by Zeus Resources, Inc., Jewel-Cee is entering the market at a very affordable SRP of only P4.00 per capsule.

Jewel-Cee is currently available in Mercury Drug stores nationwide and select local pharmacies.

Also available is Jewel-Zee plus with Zinc, which helps the body’s catalytic activity or the absorption of nutrients from food better.

It also generally helps in boosting the immune system and cell regeneration, such as wound healing. It supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence, and can help shorten the length of common colds.

How often should I take Vitamin C supplements?

This is one of the most common questions people have about Vitamin C supplements.

According to Dr. Don Cua, a certified family physician and fellow of the Philippine Society for of Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology, our bodies only need 50mg of Vitamin C per day for males and 75mg per day for females in order to function well and prevent Vitamin C deficiency.

While the daily requirement is small, there is nothing wrong with taking a 500mg Vitamin C supplement capsule daily as the body doesn’t necessarily absorb all of the 500mg you intake.

There is also no specific time stated for taking Jewel-Cee and Jewel-Zee Plus. Doctors suggest, however, that you may take vitamins before you sleep as our cells are repairing during sleep time.

Dr.Cua also recommends taking your Vitamin C after a meal to reduce the occurrence of hyperacidity.

Load up on protection with Rani-C

The COVID-19 pandemic has made us all more conscious about health safety and proper hygience. Since January this year, the Department of Health (DOH) continuously appealed to the public to frequently wash hands, observe proper hygiene, hydrate, eat nutritious food, and wear protective gears like face masks and face shields as preventive part of measures against the dreaded disease.

With La Niña well on its way, creating erratic and extreme weather patterns, many Filipinos are now even more susceptible to various infections that may weaken one’s immune system. And as the threat of the coronavirus continues to loom, any form of additional protection has never been as crucial.

This is usually in the form of vitamin supplements, especially Vitamin C, a potent antioxidant that can decrease inflammation, boost one’s immune system, and promote wound healing.

Celebrate the holidays with your doggos

Dogs are not just pets for most households. They are part of the family and are involved in activities and household decisions. This is especially true for the Christmas season when everyone gets together and spends time with their loved ones. If you’re looking for ways to treat your doggos for the holidays, here are five simple things you can do so they can also have a jolly Christmas:

Take them out to admire the holiday decor

Dogs will love the colorful explosion of Christmas lights and decor, so try to schedule your walks in the evening. Let them explore this new version of the neighborhood, but always keep them on a leash so they don’t get too close and damage the decor or hurt themselves.

Snap holiday photos with them

Cap off 2020 with a cute photoshoot with your furbaby. The year may have been tough but you can snap some holiday photos to have fond memories amid uncertain times. The photos can be shot anywhere, but you can make it more “extra” by having your dogs wear costumes. Matching Christmas sweaters will always be a hit and guaranteed likes and tons of “awww” when you post photos on social media.

Get them a gift

Part of the Christmas tradition is to give gifts and there’s no reason why your dog shouldn’t get one too. Maybe it’s time to get a new set of toys or a more comfortable bed? You can also get them more of their favorite treats so they have something to look forward to every day.

Extend cuddle time

They say some of the best gifts aren’t material things and the same could be applied to dogs. Make their Christmas more special by giving them more cuddles. The cold weather is the perfect time to snuggle up under a blanket while watching a movie.
