Immune Boosters for Cold & Flu

It’s that time of year again and the common cold and flu are soon to be upon us.

Cold & Flu Health Article

You may start feeling the onset of a cold and can act on this quickly, but the flu can strike suddenly and could take you a couple of weeks to fully recover. So prepare yourself this winter by choosing to take a supplement throughout the season, to give your immune system the optimum support to help fend off these tiring and miserable infections:

  • Vitamin C is a highly recommended supplement in boosting your immune system and helping to alleviate some of the symptoms of colds and flu.
  • Echinacea helps to kill off viruses by stimulating the immune system.
  • Zinc also supports the body’s natural defences and may stop a cold in its tracks.
  • Elderberry may help to reduce symptoms and length of infection.
  • Garlic is useful if you regularly develop a bacterial infection such as bronchitis or sinusitis, as it could help to prevent bacteria from infecting the tissues.
  • Ginseng for its antioxidant properties and is thought to stimulate the immune system to produce ‘killer T cells’ to destroy the infection.
  • Active hexose correlated compound or AHCC which is a fermented mushroom extract and has a similar effect in activating white blood cells to attack viruses and infections.
