The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of our lives in many ways and as a result people have become more health conscious. Now more than ever it is critical to take cautious steps to prevent being infected and spreading the virus. It is important to be supplied with the right products that maintain us all safe and healthy. Although many stores have health related products, sometimes it is a hassle to find them and even to pick out the best ones. With that, the Health Essentials app was developed to facilitate the findings of health products. The app is solely dedicated to presenting users with health-related products as well as recommendations on trending products and recommendations related to products that are viewed. Although the app implementation includes products specific to the pandemic, the app can be extended to provide more health products in different categories and serve as a one stop shop for health products for Covid and beyond.
