Did you know that most adults have at least two to three colds each year, while children have as many as six to eight? It is hardly surprising that with more than 200 viruses that cause colds, we sometimes need a boost, when feeling under the weather is likely. Prevention is better than cure, so try to beat the cold or flu before it even takes hold with some of our great supplements for immune defence.
Organic Burst Spirulina (£10.90) is a completely pure powder, easily digested and has a pleasant taste. A microscopic plant that has served as nourishment for 3.6 billion years, it contains a full spectrum of nutrients: beta-carotene, iron, calcium, magnesium, Vitamin B complex, chlorophyll, complete protein, GLA and more.
Patrick Holford ImmuneC (£9.75) is the perfect immune support supplement. It contains optimum amounts of Vitamin C, Zinc and now with double strength of the powerful antioxidants black elderberry and ginger, to support your body’s natural defences. Take 1 tablet twice daily to give you that extra lift you need when feeling run down.
Even with the best of intentions and preventative measures in place, sometimes illness cannot be avoided. Viridian White Willow (£6.60) often called ‘herbal aspirin’ is a traditional remedy used to relieve all sorts of symptoms including fever, headaches and muscle pain. It has been scientifically shown to relieve chronic pain, so it is worth trying before reaching for more conventional drugs. For sore throats, Viridian Organic Elderberry Throat Spray (£14.75) offers a natural and convenient therapy, to relieve symptoms associated with throat infections.
Take care this winter, and lets hope for an illness-free season!
