Cold and Flu Supplements

When cold and flu season strikes, we all want to be prepared for what's to come. During the colder months of the year the viruses that cause the common cold and flu are out and about in full force. This is because they survive better in colder environment and in colder human bodies as well. After all, we do produce a fever for a reason.

 

In winter we tend to spend more time in doors breathing the same air as others. This increases our exposure to viruses and also depletes us of the important sun nutrient called Vitamin D. Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D) helps to regulate the activity of our immune system, ensuring that viruses and bacteria do not survive long.

 

There are many natural compounds that have direct anti-viral activity, such as extracts from garlic, the mineral zinc and interestingly, iodine. These compounds work directly against the virus, helping to slow replication which allows the immune system a better chance at overcoming the invader. Additionally, anti-bacterial compounds are usually helpful during more serious viral infections, when a secondary bacterial infection can occur. Such compounds are, once again, extracts from Garlic, and Manuka Honey (or any raw untreated honey).

 

There are also a host of natural supplements that assist with maintaining general immunity. Specifically, many nutrients are needed for leukocyte (white blood cell) production in the bone marrow, and for the healthy functioning of these cells. Such nutrients are vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, selenium and the not to be forgotten, Vitamin A (retinol). There are many immunoregulatory herbs, such as andrographis, echinacea and cat's claw, that assist with general immunity and may improve host defences against viruses and bacteria.

 

Though don't forget, a healthy balanced diet, regular exercise and stress management are essential to improving general health and maintaining a healthy immune system.
