Fall is upon us as is cold and flu season, yuck! With the change in weather germs are everywhere causing us to catch whatever is in the air and all around us. It's even worse for those of us who have kids in school, do you know how many dirty hands touch everything every day at a school? Yeah, our kids always bring something home at least once or twice every fall. Our house was recently hit with a bout of the flu. The kids of course, starting off with the little guy, moving on to our daughter and it eventually hit hubby. He actually ended up catching one cold and recovered somewhat only to have it come back a second wind.

Sometimes catching a cold or flu is unavoidable but there is a way to help prevent it and strengthen your immune system. On top of having a healthy diet, taking daily vitamins, constant hand-washing and drinking tons of H2O, you can also help boost your immune system the natural way with Swiss Natural Echinacea.

Echinacea is a natural remedy that has been used to treat sore throat and colds for many years by Native Americans, so its got some history. The two most potent species of this plant are echinacea angustifolia and echinacea purpurea.

Echinacea activates cells in the immune system to help fight off cold and flu infections, support therapy that acts to treat cold, flu and upper respiratory infections and also helps relieve sore throat and other cold symptoms.

Although it is recommended from children under twelve to adults, I think personally this particular product would be better off taken by teenagers and adults only due to the size of the capsule itself. I find them quite large, especially if you don't like swallowing pills to begin with. The Swiss Natural Echinacea itself does however help subside cold and flu symptoms as my hubby started feeling better within several days of taking them. Because he is hesitant on taking things to begin with (he'd rather fight it out the hard way) he only started with only two capsules a day instead of the recommended three for adults, just in case. That seemed to be enough to help him feel better without any side effects, lets hope it doesn't return! Swiss Natural Echinacea goes for $12.99 at Swiss Natural retailers across the country.

Swiss Natural Echinacea is not recommended if pregnant, nursing and/or allergic to plants from the Asteraceae/Compositae (daisy) family. Always consult a doctor before taking any new type of medication.

Swiss Natural also has other vitamins and supplements available. For more information about Swiss Natural Echinacea and other products please visit www.swissnatural.com!  Connect with Swiss Natural on Twitter and Like them on Facebook for the latest updates!

  1. They are just beginning to talk about flu shots here, but our household has already done battle with the first colds of the season. Maybe it was the pre-schooler bug carried by Grandchildren though. Still, Vitamin C's and such....any port in a storm.
