Once again, cold and flu season is upon us, along with its aches, pains, sniffles, sore throats and coughs. Unless you work from home and can stay inside until Spring, you are bound to be exposed in one way or another. However, there are some proactive measures you can take to avoid infection, boost your immune system and make your body an undesirable environment for viruses to inhabit.
In addition to practicing good hygiene by frequent hand-washing, try to avoid touching commonly affected surfaces, like bannisters, door handles and PIN pads. Keep your hands away from your mouth nose and eyes, and steer clear of people who are sneezing and coughing in public. Cold and flu viruses tend to airborne, so even the most proactive efforts to dodge them can be futile.
Besides avoiding contact with sick people, one effective thing you can do to fight off winter viruses is arm your immune system with micronutrients. Certain nutrients can help make your body a hostile environment to colds and flu, and can shorten their duration and lessen their severity if you do contract them.
Try these three amazing micronutrients to fight winter viruses:
- Mega-dose Vitamin C: Vitamin C is an important vitamin, necessary for repair of body tissues, formation of collagen, absorption of iron, wound healing, maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth, and support of the immune system. It is well known to be a first line of defense against colds and flu.
- Zinc: This mighty mineral is essential for hormone production, digestion and immune health. It is known to reduce the severity and shorten the duration of cold symptoms.
- Glutathione: An amino acid peptide, glutathione promotes T-cell function, which is essential for a strong immune system.
Maximize Your Resistance with IV Micronutrient Therapy
Taking high doses of micronutrients in pill form can upset your stomach and cost a lot of money. Because they must travel the length of your digestive tract to be absorbed, pills and tablets often pass right through your system, exiting your body as urine and waste.
A quick and efficient way to get virus-fighting micronutrients is via IV therapy. Over the course of about an hour, nutrients are infused, drip by drip, into your bloodstream where they are readily available to provide support for your immune system. The treatment is minimally invasive and relaxing, and you will begin feeling better in no time.
