It’s time to prepare for cold and flu season before it’s too late! Here are our top supplement choices for preventing or alleviating cold and flu symptoms:
Jamieson Energy Spray B12 ($24.99): Vitamin B12 is an awesome supplement for boosting the immune system and it’s effective when you need more energy. Jamieson’s energy spray contains 125 sprays, with each spray releasing 500mcg of vitamin B12. Does not contain salt, gluten, lactose, and artificial colours, flavours and sweeteners. Bonus: it tastes like peppermint!
Nature’s Bounty Oil of Oregano, equivalent to 1500 mg oregano ($14.99): What we love about oregano is that it’s a powerful antioxidant that can strengthen your immune system while fighting free radicals. Each capsule in this product contains 15mg of oregano essential oil. Consume with food and take 1-2 soft gels per day.
Ester-C Energy Boost 1000mg Vitamin C Drink Mix, 30 packets ($29.99): Vitamin C is famous for shortening the duration of illnesses! As written in Best Health Magazine, “if you think of your immune system as a high-performance vehicle, vitamin C is like high-octane fuel that makes the immune cells…better able to find and destroy viruses.” These amazing drink mixes are available in orange or wildberry; each packet holds 1000mg of vitamin C.
Purica Magnesium Bisglycinate Muscle Relief Powder, 12 packets ( $24.99): Magnesium helps relax sore muscles. And according to the journal Magnesium Research, magnesium may strengthen your immune system: “Magnesium also has a strong relation with the immune system in both non specific and specific immune responses and magnesium deficit has been shown to be related to impaired cellular and humoral immune function.” We love these drink powders, with each packet containing 350mg of magnesium. Available in lemon-lime and raspberry.
Swiss Naturals Magnesium Oxide 420mg ($14.99): If you’d rather consume magnesium in tablet form, this is your best bet! Don’t forget, a magnesium supplement taken before and during colds and the flu will help your muscles function properly. Does not contain artificial flavors and colours; no preservatives, sweeteners, dairy, corn, soy, gluten, wheat or yeast.
