Help Immune System Fight Off Colds and Flu

Help Immune System Fight Off Colds and Flu

Our immune system defends us from illnesses, infections, and even death. It is the front line of our defense system. But like all defense mechanisms, it can be weakened over time if it is not supported properly. If you are looking for ways to strengthen your immune system, you may want to consider supplements and remedies to infections.

Antibiotics are usually used to eliminate bacteria from the body not viruses. So why should natural immune system boosters be beneficial against viruses? Well, as stated, antibiotics are used primarily to eliminate bacteria but they also are used against other organisms such as viruses. So what natural immune system boosters do is help the immune system supports itself by increasing the number of cells and T cells it can support. These cells will then help the entire body to fight off illness and infection.

During flu season, people who may have been ill or infected with colds and other infections are more susceptible to get the colds and other infections again. To make sure you are healthy enough to keep yourself safe from this, it is recommended you practice a healthy diet full of vitamins and nutrients as well as taking multivitamins to boost your immune system. And one of the best herbs to boost your immune system during flu season is green tea.

Fructo-Less from Well CellGarlic and ginseng both have strong immune system boosting properties. In fact, they have been used in Asia for years to help with colds and flu symptoms. Both of these herbs can be used in the form of teas, added to food or taken in capsule form. To get the most benefits, you should consume at least six to eight cups of green tea daily and take one to two grams of ginseng per day. Both ginseng and garlic have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help ease the symptoms of the flu.

A healthy diet rich in vegetables and lean proteins along with the proper amounts of rest can also help strengthen your immune system. Adding supplements such as calcium and probiotics to your diet can also help enhance your immunity. The bottom line is that you want to make sure you are getting all the nutrients you need from the foods you eat. If you aren’t getting enough vitamins and nutrients from the foods you eat, you won’t be able to produce enough antibodies to help your body fight off infections. This includes flu and colds. And by creating these antibodies, you will also be boosting your natural immunity to other illnesses.

Taking supplements of green tea and garlic or taking a shot of ginseng daily will not cure the cause of your symptoms. They will help your body’s natural ability to fight off disease, but they will not cure you. If you are feeling as if you haven’t done enough to help yourself, then you may need to talk to your doctor about prescription medications or vitamin therapy for your symptoms. A strong immune system is the cornerstone of good health. And healthy immune systems are the key to naturally increasing your resistance to illness and the development of all kinds of infections.

  1. The most important defense we have against viruses in the absence of inhibitory drugs is our immune system.

  2. yogurt and kefir (they can also be prepared at home, thus avoiding sugars and preservatives used by the food industry)

  3. Often only with food it is not possible to take these substances in adequate quantities. Here then is where supplements are used.

  4. However, any supplementation through the intake of food supplements, especially if aimed at immunostimulation, must be rigorously personalized and managed by a doctor.

  5. Nowadays you don’t need a doctor, there’s plenty information on the web. A doctor will drive you to the products he or she wants to sell.

  6. You can still ask for the doctor opinion but then purchase your own supplements anywhere you like without being bound to get what the doctor normally subscribes.

  7. It is hilarious how common people do not actually see how much traction doctors have in the sale of pharmaceutics and supplements.

  8. There is this misconception about doctors always being the right guy…actually many of them do get a sort of commission for selling one brand instead of another.

  9. That’s for sure, how else would you think that the big pharma would be able to reach their sales targets if not relying on a team of undisputed professional sellers who wear a white coat symbol of absolute authority.

  10. They also get free hotel room, food and even plane ticked to major worldwide events organized by the Medical research institutes (most of them heavily sponsored by pharma brands).

  11. The more I read the more I think that my mom was right to push me to be a doctor. Too late now 🙁
