Top 4 Supplements to Beat Winter Colds

Nobody likes being sick. It’s the worst. You’re tired and stuffy and your energy is low. You feel like garbage and you dont want to leave your bed. We’ve all been there. And while theres nothing we can do to prevent you from getting a cold, there are several supplements you can take to help battle and oncoming infection and lessen the severity of whatever you catch:

ZINC: Walk into any pharmacy’s cold/flu section and you’re likely to see roughly 4,000 products with zinc in it. Why? Because studies have shown that zinc in the form of lozenges or supplements may shorten the length of a cold by one or two days.

VITAMIN C: Next to Zinc, Vitamin C may be the most popular anti-cold supplement around. Vitamin C is often mixed into cold remedy cocktails or even used as a solo cold fighter in massive quantities. However you choose to use it, upping your intake of Vitamin C, either through foods high in C like oranges or through supplements, may provide your body with another tool to fight a winter cold.

TURMERIC: Turmeric has been used for centuries to lower inflammation in the body. By lowering inflammation, you may give your immune system the boost it needs to keep a long cold at bay.

ECHINACEA: Echinacea is derived from an herb in the daisy family and it is often called a coneflower based on its appearance. In supplement form, it is a powerful antioxidant that, like turmeric, may decrease inflammation in the body, resulting in a stronger response to your body’s ability to fight a cold.
