How to Stay Healthy When You Travel

If you travel a lot, it’s important to stay healthy, and Filters Fast is here to help. Here are some unique ways that you can stay healthy when you’re on the go:

1. Stay in one of Hyatt’s hypoallergenic hotel rooms:

Hyatt Hotels will introduce 2,000 new hypoallergenic rooms in 125 different hotels across the country by the end of this year. These rooms are perfect for people with asthma, allergies or other respiratory sensitivities. They feature amenities that ensure cleaner air for guests, including hypoallergenic mattress covers and pillow cases and medical-grade air purifiers that remove 98 percent of airborne viruses, pollen and bacteria.

2. Use a Plane Clean Air Filter while in flight

Air on a plane is constantly recirculated, meaning all of the viruses and bacteria in the air are redistributed throughout the cabin over and over again. If you end up sitting next to someone who’s a little under the weather, you’ll be more at risk.  Protect yourself from these pathogens with a Plane Clean Air Filter. These attach easily to the overhead nozzle in most planes and remove 99.5 percent of all bacteria and viruses in the air stream.

3. Don’t forget your Filtered Water Bottle

When you’re away from home, you never really know how clean the water you’re drinking is. We have several options for travelers to get access to clean, filtered water, no matter where you are. The Katadyn MyBottle Water Microfilter is a personal water bottle with a filter that is easily inserted and reduces 99.99 percent of all bacteria and cysts as well as other contaminants, bad tastes and odors. This is great to have if you’re traveling to another country where the tap water is considered unsafe to drink. If you simply want to remove the chlorine taste from water that you know has been municipally treated, the 16 oz Filters Fast Filtered Water Bottle will do the job.

Now of course there are other “common-sense” ways to stay healthy while you travel: eat healthy, stay hydrated, take advantage of the fitness room at the hotel, and wash your hands frequently. But now you have a few other items you can add to your list that you may not have known about. Before your next trip, be sure to visit FiltersFast.com so you can try some of these out. We’d love to hear your feedback!
