- Vicks Warm Steam Vaporizer
Water is one nutrient that all forms of life must have to survive. All functions of your body require sufficient moisture to work properly. Dry, arid climatic conditions are usually the culprit. Colds and flu can further cause dehydration.
Colds and flu begin making their seasonal rounds during fall and winter. Part of the reason for increased respiratory illnesses during this time is because the humidity level in the air reaches its yearly lows. Central heating units in homes and offices further remove moisture from the air. The relative humidity may drop to as low as 10% - drier than the air in the Sahara Desert. Most people experience problems when the relative humidity drops below 25%. A comfortable every day humidity level should be between 40-60%.
When you or your child are experiencing congestion, then the humidity should be kept much higher, 70-80% during these periods for best effect.
Humidifiers help prevent this excessive dryness, providing these benefits:
Â· Helps relieve cold, flu and hay fever symptoms.
Â· Helps relieve dry, irritated and itching skin and eyes.
Â· Helps relieve coughs and dry, scratchy throat.
Â· Helps you breathe better and sleep more comfortably.
Â· Stops dryout damage to plants, paintings and furniture.
Â· Saves you money on your heating bills, since proper humidity lets you feel more comfortable at lower temperatures.
