The basic concept is that nature has already solved many of the issues the world is dealing with today – such as disease control. food production, transportation, energy, and much more.

UV-Technology’s UV-Aid helps prevent the common cold, flu, and ear infections, safely and effectively by using UVA light to kill germs in the ear, nose, and oral passages where air-borne infections start. When skin is exposed to UVA light hydrogen peroxide is produced through a natural process called photo-oxidation. Hydrogen peroxide safely kills germs, and also signals white blood cells for additional long term protection.

UV-Aid is a powerful and useful example of what can be accomplished when man looks towards nature for solutions to seemingly impossible problems. Before the advent of UV-Aid there had been no option for the prevention the common cold or ear infections. In addition, with the revelation that flu vaccines are only effective 59% of the time, and overuse of antibiotics causing an alarming growth of super bugs, alternative strategies are needed.

By studying natural immune processes and clues provided by decades of information regarding outbreaks of air-borne diseases and infections, UV Technology has developed a unique photo-oxidation strategy that shows promise for the
