5 natural products to prevent colds and flu

Here are five product suggestions to help you fight cold and flu symptoms naturally this season.

Myco Shield Vaporizer – Host Defense

Available in peppermint or cinnamon flavour, this product is formulated with five organic mushrooms: Agarikon, Reishi, Chaga, Polypore and Turkey Tail. Their synergy forms an “immune shield” that prevents the first signs of contamination, but also acts as a winter tonic.

Prevail Cold & Fever Syrup – Purica

This naturally-flavoured flu buster is a concentrate of three organic herbal extracts – forsythia, honeysuckle and baikal skullcap – traditionally used in Chinese medicine to relieve early cold symptoms, including sore throat, cough and fever.

Drastix tincture – Clef des Champs

This organic product is a blend of organic goldenseal, echinacea, myrrh and propolis tinctures. These are traditionally used in Western phytotherapy to treat colds, flu and respiratory tract infections.

Elderberry syrup – Immunia

An excellent natural antiviral, this organic syrup – made with elderberry, elderflower, peppermint and thyme – helps relieve cold and flu symptoms, such as coughing and sore throat and inflammation.

Ravintsara essential oil – Pranarôm

This organic Ravintsara essential oil is beneficial for relieving respiratory viral infections since it has anti-infectious, decongestant, expectorant and antitussive properties.1 It can be inhaled, applied topically or taken orally. *

* For proper essential oil use, Avril advises to consult a specialist in aromatherapy or natural health products.
