Causes of Colds and Flu

The common cold is not caused by colder weather. The reason cold and flu cases are more apparent in the colder months is because viruses thrive better in colder weather. It would be wise to take a flu shot and begin taking supplements that help boost your immune system in the colder months.

Research & Alternative Solutions

With over $1 billion dollars spent every year on non-prescription solutions for coughs and cold, we have done some research to find out what natural products are effective. Here are some ingredients that can help:

  • Beta Glucan- Enhances the immune system
     
  • Vitamin C- Fights cold viruses
     
  • Zinc- Boosts the immune system
     
  • Colloids- Useful for eliminating bacteria, fungal infections, and viral infections
     
  • Echinacea and Goldenseal- When used in combination, they can boost your immune system and keep cold/flu viruses from multiplying
     
  • Elderberry- Recommended for upper respiratory infections and headaches that are associated with colds and flu
     
  • Spirulina- A good source of carotenoids which may be helpful for healing inflamed mucous membranes as well as strengthening the immune system

The products we have recommended in the chart at the top of this page contain the most beneficial ingredients to help boost your immune system during Cold/Flu season.
