The below supplements can help support your body during the cold and flu season.
Propolis - containing over 300 natural compounds that work along side the immune system as complimentary agent helping it be more effective when fighting illness. Studies have shown it to help treat and shorten the length of colds. Take it at the first sign of illness.
Vitamin C - Most peoples ‘go to’ vitamin at the first sign of a cold. Studies have shown that it can help reduce the length of illness and helps with the absorption of other important vitamins and minerals.
Zinc lozenges - can help reduce the length of a cold. The lozenges allow the the zinc to be absorbed closer to the effected nasal passage preventing the virus from spreading.
When taking a supplement you need to make sure you are taking it correctly and regularly to get the most benefit. I always recommend speaking to a nutritionists or GP before starting a new supplement, especially if you are any other medications.
Supplements come in many forms - powders, capsules and tablets. Choosing ones that are made by a reputable company is always advised. Always read the label.
