As always we recommend that you come in to see us in the Kanturk or Charleville stores for personal recommendations for your own specific condition but here are a few general recommendations of products for treating colds, boosting immunity and boosting energy.
TAKE GOOD QUALITY VITAMIN C AND ZINC
Vitamin C will help your body to fight off illness. Zinc is very important for the production of the white blood cells which will help you to fight viruses. Sambucol Immuno Forte is Black Elderberry Liquid with Vitamin C and Zinc designed specifically for the treatment and prevention of colds and viruses. You can use use EsterC which is a very high quality vitamin C supplement which is non-acidic and gentle on the stomach and easy for your body to absorb.
Use Sinuforce Nasal Spray if your nose is blocked during or after a cold. Other symptoms may include a feeling that your sinuses are congested (possibly causing headaches), or catarrh sitting stubbornly in your nasal passages. It is also a good product to try if you are finding it hard to breathe freely through your nose, with symptoms affecting your sleep or ability to exercise.
If your symptoms are caused by hayfever or allergic rhinitis (allergies to dust or animals), giving you an itchy, runny or irritated nose, Pollinosan Luffa Nasal Spray will be more suitable for you. Other symptoms may include your nose and eyes reacting to certain weather conditions or factors that you can’t pin down.
Bromelain is a protein-digesting enzyme found naturally in the fruit, juice and stem of the pineapple plant it has been found to be effective for the treatment of sinusitis in some studies*. We have both Viridian and Solgar Bromelain supplements in the online shop.
