The Centers for Disease Control has said this is shaping up to be a tough cold & flu season. Akin's Natural Foods Market has supplements to help prevent illness. "Yes, cold & flu season is here, and as we all spend more time inside, we expose ourselves to more germs and viruses. Akin’s has all the solutions for keeping your immune system strong to fight off those viruses, from herbs to teas to chicken soup. And people come to Akin’s because they trust our advice and our products," Mary Ann O'Dell, registered dietitian at Akin's said. "It’s easier to prevent a cold or flu than it is to get rid of it once you have it." There are key nutrient that help keep the immune system strong, such as vitamin C and zinc. Akin’s carries paragon Plus All Well Immuno Daily with astragalus and red root, which is designed to be used daily to keep the immune system strong.
"Sometimes you fight and fight but your body gives in and you get sick," O'Dell said. "When you’re sick it’s part nurture and part fight – you want things to ease your symptoms, but you also need to keep boosting that immune system."
"I like the All Well Formula – it’s a comprehensive blend of effective herbs and vitamins to support overall immune health," she said. "You can take it all during cold & flu season to help you get well or stay well. And for symptom support, look for things that are comforting and soothing for you. That might be a soothing ginger cough syrup, hot herbal tea, throat lozenges, or maybe an aromatic herbal formula with horseradish to open up those congested sinus so you can breathe."
