Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Two years since the pandemic crisis began, people have learned how to live under the new normal. Countries have started easing restrictions, allowing businesses to operate more freely and employees to return to their office spaces.

Companies have then doubled down on prioritizing their employees’ health and safety. Many firms have shifted to a hybrid work arrangement, already having employees physically report to the office.

Part of the adjustments to the new normal is the retrofitted workplaces accommodating returning workers and new employees, while also strictly observing minimum public health standards to eliminate the chances of transmitting the cold virus in offices. This pushed some companies to distribute care and defense kits to all their employees, which usually contain essentials like vitamins, medicines, and the like.

To prepare employees for the office, these kits should not only contain the remedies but also support their defenses to help them continue being healthy along with proper diet and exercise.

A good partner for that? Here is Vicks to bring in that additional layer of defense wherever you are.

Vicks offers Vicks First Defence nasal spray and Ascorbic Acid + Zinc + Cholecalciferol (Vicks Immune Defense), which both highlight the importance of one's health and immunity-boosting — an imperative most especially with the current set-up.

Vicks First Defence nasal spray is clinically proven to help stop a cold when used at first signs. This latest product from Vicks works by helping trap, inactivate, and remove cold viruses to reduce their chances of being a full-blown cold. Moreover, it can help shorten the duration of a cold or lessen the chances of a severe cold infection.

Meanwhile, Ascorbic Acid + Zinc + Cholecalciferol (Vicks Immune Defense) — the brand's first-ever vitamin — was developed to help boost your immune system with proper diet and exercise. Each capsule contains Vitamin C to help fight colds, Zinc to help fight cell damage, and high-strength Vitamin D to help fight infection. Together, these ingredients help provide 3-in-1 immune defense, along with proper diet and exercise.
