Cold and flu season is here. I know, I hate it too. Those of us with children know those little germ factories bring home every bug and cootie they come across at school. Before long, you feel like your house is a Petri dish of viruses and bacteria.
Since you can’t quarantine your family until the bright and sunny days of summer, prevention is your best line of defense. First and foremost, you need to eat right and keep exercising. It’s imperative to wash your hands often and thoroughly, especially after visiting public places.
You can also boost your immune system with vitamins and supplements formulated for wellness, like Vitacost EpiCor, an all-natural supplement made to nourish your immune system, or Vitacost Wellness Season Formula with over 20 herbs and vitamins including Echinacea, vitamin C and zinc.
Feel something coming on and want to knock it out of your system before it really takes hold? Invigorate your body and mind with Alacer Emergen-C Vitamin C Fizzy drink. It comes in a variety of flavors and even has lower dose kid-friendly option. The pocket-sized packets are great to carry with you in your purse or bag. Yummy vitamin therapy on the go makes it easy to put up your best defense.
The sad truth of it is, sometimes, you’re going to lose the fight. When that happens, make sure you have a variety of remedies on hand to reduce your cold and flu symptoms. Before you break out the drugstore varieties, try natural, herbal remedies like Hyland’s natural products for your little ones–I especially like Hyland’s Nighttime Cold ‘N Cough 4 Kids.
You can’t win every battle in the war on germs, but you can be prepared and take care of yourself and your loved ones every step of the way when you have the right products on hand.
