Get Rid of Colds and Cold Symptoms Faster
Understanding Cold & Flu - Natural Cold & Flu Supplements, Herbs & Nutrients
Most of us have experienced a cold or flu before and would prefer to avoid experiencing the unpleasant symptoms again. The symptoms (fever, runny nose, cough, fatigue etc.) are caused by cold and flu viruses enter the body through the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose or mouth and are highly contagious and disruptive once infection has begun, making prevention key. While there are seasons of high susceptibility to a cold/flu, individuals with weaker immune systems or those under significant stress can become ill more than the average individual. While techniques to control the risk of infection are absolutely critical for prevention, supporting the immune system year round can help decrease the susceptibility to infection. Studies show that certain nutrients are effective at supporting the immune system and reducing the risk of infection.
