I got this pack of candy from the Cure launch and since Cure is from Japan, we had some gifts in the goodie bag exclusively from Japan, which means it's not sold anywhere here so if you're not interested, I understand if you don't want to read further LOL
Anyway, this Cure Influ Block Candy is interesting because it claims to protect the consumer from getting infected with viruses and bacteria. The candy is made from swallows' nest and it contains the Sialic acid, which blocks viruses and bacteria (for real??!!)
Protecting the throat is important in maintaining our health. Hence, this candy, which is NOT a drug, where people who want to avoid medication can take this sweet to prevent infection. It is not easy to keep viruses away and if you routinely require a healthy throat, just pop this candy in your mouth.
Really nice packaging!
All in Japanese though but we had a separate pamphlet in English.
These candies are extracted naturally and are 100% natural!
I thought it seems like some herbal sweets and might not be nice to eat but turns out..
It is blueberry flavoured and just like any candy only with good benefits ^^
First time I heard of a candy which can prevent viruses and bacteria. So, you know if you happened to sit beside someone who has been sneezing and coughing non stop, just take one candy and hope you're prevented from catching his/her flu. Cool, right? *laughs* Normally eating candy is because we want something to chew, now it has added benefits! The Japanese can sometimes be so creative! It's even suitable for all age groups, from children to seniors.
This is definitely something which is beneficial to me because I cannot afford to get sick now. So, when I think I might be catching a flu or something, I will immediately turn to this candy *laughs* I don't know whether its effectiveness is proven, but prevention is better than cure, right? =))
If you're on your way to Japan, you might want to look out for this hehe
The website is all in Japanese, but if you can understand, www.toyo-life.co.jp
