During cold and flu season, you don’t have to be a germaphobe to feel like there are germs everywhere.
The sneezing man next to you at your local coffee shop, the elevator buttons in dentist’s lobby, and your roommate’s unwashed dishes all seem suspect.
And your fear isn’t unfounded. Take this in the least alarming way possible: Germs really are everywhere so wash your hands often and give your immune system a boost when you can.
These supplements are great year round, but really become essential during cold and flu season. Let’s break down how you can use them to really support your immune system.
This fizzy powder you dissolve in water packs a punch of vitamins. Each packet contains 1,000 mg of vitamin C — that’s about 1,667 percent of the daily value. Emergen-C also includes vitamins B6 and B12 and zinc, among others.
Oscillococcinum, a micro-organism a French physician discovered while studying the flu, has been used in homeopathic medicine to both address and protect against the flu. Taking oscillococcinum while you have the flu may reduce your symptoms and help you get well faster.
Elderberries have been used in homeopathic medicine for centuries to combat colds and the flu. This syrup is concentrated elderberry juice with a little vitamin C thrown in.
These tasty lozenges deliver elderberry, zinc, and 103mg of Vitamin C—a powerful trio for strengthening immunity when you need it most.
This Wellness Formula is another supplement full of vitamins to lend a helping hand to your immune system. It includes more than 2,000 percent of the daily value of vitamin C, as well as vitamins A and D, zinc, selenium, echinacea and elderberry extract. Talk about a potent formula!
