Cold and flu prevention is a really important category of natural health for us here at Roslyn Pharmacy, and it’s something we really stand by. It all starts with what your mother used to say about eating your fruits and vegetables.
Products like vitamin C have long been proven to help with colds and flu, speed up recovery time and also prevent you from getting sick in the first place. There have been a number of advances made to vitamin C products of late. A lot of people say “I eat a lot of oranges” – the products we offer don’t quite work like that anymore. For example, we’ve got a product called Lipo-Spheric Vitamin C, which is basically the vitamin C encapsulated in a liposome. That means the vitamin enters your system very efficiently, without degradation through the digestive system. It’s almost as good as getting a vitamin C injection – a fantastically effective way of getting vitamin C into your body to speed up recovery time.
We stock a whole range of natural health products for cold and flu prevention, ranging from zinc lozenges to garlic capsules and Echinacea. Our key message is to start taking them early in the flu season so you can prevent getting the cold & flu in the first place. While the most effective prevention is still the flu vaccine, these natural health products are a great way to boost your immune system and stay healthy throughout the winter months. Come in and talk to us to work out which one is the best product for you.
