Flu Prevention Tips

Ways to Avoid the Flu this Season

It is estimated that between 5-20% of the US population gets the flu each year, with numbers peaking from December to February. With that season just around the corner, it’s important to take preventative measures now so that we can stay healthy and fully enjoy our winter. Below are some over the counter items to help with our battle against the flu.

ImmunoBerry Liquid

Packed with elderberry, astragalus root, shiitake and maitake mushroom, and wild cherry bark, this great-tasting liquid is designed to be a natural support your immune system so you can ward off those nasty flu viruses. 

Recommended dose: One milliliter daily, or as directed by your practitioner

Price: $38.50 for 118 doses

Vitamin D

A recent study has shown that administering a therapeutic amount of Vitamin D resulted in a “42% decrease in the incidence of influenza infection”. While studies are still being conducted, there is strong evidence that keeping our Vitamin D levels up could be an effective way to keep infection away. Whether you prefer to take your Vitamin D as a liquid, capsule, or dissolvable tablet, we have you covered. 

Recommended dose: Talk to your doctor or ask our pharmacists what would be best for you

Price: Varies from $6.99 to $27.90 based on strength and quantity needed

OmegAvail

DHA-rich fish oil has been shown to enhance B-cell activity, giving us a stronger defense against attacking viruses. Taking a quality fish oil supplement like OmegAvail will strengthen our immune system which in turn will put us in a better position to stay healthy and afloat among a sea of the sick. 

Recommended dose: Take 2 softgel capsules daily with food, or as directed by your practitioner
