Cold and Flu Prevention This Season - Get Setup With The Right Supplies!

Fighting a cold? You don’t need to do it alone! NutriChem has a wide variety of natural health products that you can use to support your immune system. Whether you want to prevent yourself from getting sick, or would like to reduce the severity and duration of symptoms, NutriChem has you covered!


D-Best by NutriChem

When it comes to supplements that build immunity, Vitamin D is at the top on my list. Also known as the sunshine vitamin, having optimal levels of vitamin D reduces the likelihood of coming down with a cold in half! Vitamin D also reduces the risk of developing viral and bacterial infections. Already sick? Taking vitamin D can speed up your recovery from illness. 

 

Pro tip: Have your levels tested! Many people don’t know that taking a standard dose of Vitamin D might not be enough for them. Different people need different supplemental levels of this important vitamin. 

Deep Immune by St. Francis

Deep Immune is one of the most popular immune supportive products on the market. A combination of herbs that are frequently used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Deep Immune not only strengthens immune function, it also supports the body in times of stress. 


Pro Tip: Deep immune is a preventative supplement and should be taken daily during the colder months to stave off sickness. 

Buffered Vitamin C Powder by NutriChem


Vitamin C has been shown to reduce the duration of the common cold by as long as 1 ½ days! This is amazing news when you are feeling under the weather. I recommend taking the powdered form because you can add it to your water and sip on it throughout the day. 


Pro Tip: When using powdered Vitamin C, be sure to brush your teeth after consuming or drinking through a reusable straw, to protect the enamel on your teeth. 

All Life Colostrum by AOR


Colostrum transmits immunity and supports the body in combating bacterial and viral infections! Colostrum is especially beneficial for preventing upper respiratory tract infections. 


Pro Tip: As an added benefit, colostrum is wonderful for reducing inflammation of the digestive tract, and may therefore be particularly beneficial for those suffering from inflammatory bowel disease. 





Elderberry Syrup

This is another go to for shortening the duration and severity of cold and flu. This syrup is not only effective, it’s also delicious! We have a few different brands of this product including one suitable for children!


Pro tip: NutriChem also carries Elderberry syrup that contains other immune supportive ingredients such as Echinacea and Vitamin C! 


If you find yourself getting sick frequently, and taking a long time to recover, consider scheduling in with a NutriChem Clinician who will consider your specific needs and make recommendations in accordance with your biochemical individuality.
