Look after your immunity this cold and flu season naturally. 

Preventive actions and always better the corrective actions. So be proactive with your health these winter months. As the weather gets colder, we are more likely to get sick. 

Why you get sick more in winter:


Viruses during the winter season are more common, due to two reasons:

1. We spend more of our time indoors

When we spend more time indoors we have more close encounters within confined areas, which in turn may increase our chances of getting sick.

2. Cold temperature & reduced humidity

The decrease in humidity and colder temperatures means that viruses tend to survive in the air for a much longer time.

While this can all sound rather scary, there are things we can do to help look after our immune system and help it to fight viruses such as the common cold.
