Vicks Warm Steam Vaporizer
Water is one nutrient that all of forms of life must have to survive. All functions of your body require sufficient moisture to work properly. When your body does not have sufficient moisture, it functions poorly. Dry, arid climatic conditions are usually the culprit. Colds and flus can further cause dehydration.
Colds and flus begin making their seasonal rounds during Autumn and Winter. Part of the reason for increased respiratory illness during this time is because the humidity level in the air reaches its yearly lows. Central heating units in homes and offices can further remove moisture from the air. The relative humidity may drop as low as 10% - drier than the air in the Sahara Desert. Most people experience problems when the relative humidity drops below 25%.
At a humidity level of between 40-60%, humidifiers help prevent this excessive dryness, providing these benefits:
Helps reduce the survival of the flu virus on the surface and in the air.
Helps relieve dry and irritated skin and eyes.
Helps relieve dry and scratchy throats.
Helps you breathe better and sleep more comfortably.
Stops dryout damage to plants, paintings and furniture.
Saves you money on your heating bills, since proper humidity lets you feel more comfortable at lower temperatures.
