ALL ABOUT THE FLU: Fight cold and flu symptoms — before they start!

As the weather gets cooler, we may start experiencing symptoms of the cold and flu. Itchy, scratchy, dry throat, tiredness, sneezing, and coughing are just some of the unpleasant indicators that our immune system has been compromised. The most effective measure is prevention - staying healthy before illness arises. By maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including exercise, washing hands, getting sufficient sleep, following a balanced diet and taking supplements, you may just be able to fight those cold and flu symptoms - before they even start!

There are several supplements available that can keep your immune system working at its best. Among the most popular natural remedies are vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc, echinacea, and probiotics. There are numerous studies to support vitamin C and its ability to strengthen the immune system. Over the years, vitamin D (along with vitamin C) and probiotics have been gaining momentum for their immune-stimulating properties, among many other functions.

Jamieson Vitamins C&D is a premium formula that combines the cold and flu-fighting properties of vitamin C and vitamin D. This innovative product is a great choice for consumers who regularly supplement with vitamin C, but want the additional protection against cold and flu viruses that vitamin D may provide, particularly during the winter months when natural production of this nutrient from sunshine is limited. In addition to 500 milligrams (mg) of vitamin C, each tablet provides 100 International Units (IU) of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), the same form that is naturally produced in the body during exposure to sunlight. These easy-to-chew tablets are available in the great-tasting flavour of fresh morello red cherries.

Probiotics (“good bacteria”) are another area where research is emerging on its positive effect on immune activity. Jamieson Advanced 4-Strain is one of the few probiotics to meet World Health Organization (WHO) standards. It contains a blend of four clinically tested probiotic cultures that work together to support a healthy intestinal microflora. Unlike most other probiotic formulas on the market, this product does not require refrigeration, making it convenient for travel and use while on-the-go. The probiotics are also “gastro-protected” because of a unique delivery system that ensures the probiotics survive passage through the acidic environment of the stomach and are delivered to the intestinal tract where they are needed. Regularly consuming probiotics can help enhance the immune system, especially during the cold and flu season.

Guard yourself against the cold and flu and start supplementing today with natural health products that provide immune support such as vitamin C, vitamin D and probiotics.
