The new go-to for leaving the house

Humanity is more than a year into the COVID-19 Pandemic, and thanks to vaccines, infections are now dropping all around the world, following the UK and Europe. With high awareness and pandemic experience, it’s time to convince ourselves that the new future will be better.

After so long in several lockdowns, it’s completely okay to feel anxious about leaving the house. Our new ‘normal’ was our house for so long during the pandemic, and easing the restrictions makes many of us feel happy and avoidant at the same time. We must admit that it’s a major dilemma for many of us, choosing to stay home to keep virus-free or going out despite viruses to feel free.

In this stage, lots of innovative products are on the way to make the public’s life easier and comfortable besides mandatory measurements and vaccines. For example, who would have thought that a piece of chewing gum might provide extra protection?

Distance, mask, disinfection – and chewing gum: The new go-to for leaving the house feeling good could be chewing gum. With the active ingredient chitosan, GoBeDo Immune Boosting Gum provides an extra layer of protection during the ongoing Corona pandemic. Like a film, the antiviral substance lays on the mucous membranes in the mouth and throat – exactly where the risk of infection is greatest.

Scientists at Charité University in Berlin tested 3,000 substances for their effect against viruses and bacteria. Chitosan showed the best protection. The natural substance, which has a very good safety profile and is used in many regulatory approved food supplements, is obtained from fungi. Its effect against pathogens has been known for a long time and been investigated in numerous scientific investigations.

For the first time, a team around immunologist Dr Karl Skriner combines chitosan with immune-boosting zinc in the form of a chewing gum. With this innovative product, GoBeDo creates a convenient and extremely pleasant way to add another layer of protection to your everyday life.
