Jetson Provides Front-Line Coronavirus Workers with Free Immunity-Supporting Probiotics

Healthcare workers, delivery drivers, grocery clerks and more need all the immunity support they can get right now; Jetson pledges support and calls on other health-focused companies to do the same


CHICAGO, March 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jetson, creators of the world’s only seasonal probiotic, today announced its commitment to provide front-line, essential workers with Immunity, an immunity-supporting probiotic formula, originally developed specifically to support optimal gut health for winter’s cold and flu season.  With the spread of COVID-19, Jetson is extending the availability of Immunity, offering it as a one-time purchase. This probiotic formula is designed to support upper respiratory health and also contains three key ingredients shown to provide immune support: zinc, echinacea, and vitamin C.

Starting today, first-time buyers of any Jetson product will receive a free bottle of Immunity to send to a front-line worker. Additionally, anyone can email goto@wearejetson.com with a brief description of him/herself or someone else who qualifies as a front-line, essential worker. Submissions should include name, email address and occupation. Jetson will ship Immunity, free of charge.

“Giving away one Immunity product for every Jetson product we sell certainly isn't a good business model and it isn’t one we planned for— we’re essentially using the profit from each sale to fund the cost of the free product we’re sending. But it’s the right thing to do for our customers, our employees, and the country’s workers,” said Stefan Weitz, CEO, and co-founder of Jetson. “It seems a little naive to think that I could be helpful on a large scale during this pandemic, but we want to ignite a national—hopefully even global—campaign of paying our good fortune forward. We are asking any company who makes products that boost immune function to step up and join us by donating their products as well.”
