How can I protect myself from colds and flu this winter?
This is a common question asked on Google every day; every winter we are affected by common colds and flus, and now of course we can add COVID-19 into the mix. Each airborne virus is debilitating in its own way, some more having a more severe symptoms than others and always dependent upon how your own immune system is working at a particular time. However, the one thing they all have in common is that they can all help to be prevented with a simple, safe and effective nasal spray - BioSURE PRO Protective Nasal Spray.
Just two sprays of BioSURE PRO Protective Nasal Spray into each nostril can protect you for 6 hours and you can repeat throughout the day. Regular use helps ensure continuous, effective protection when going about your daily life. Catching colds, flu or covid, can mean time out of work or school, missing important events and even ruining holiday plans. Who has time to be sick, and quite frankly who wants to be sick when it can simply and easily be prevented?
Your immune system is also really important to consider, as this is how your body responds to things like viruses and bacteria. It is impacted by your general diet and wellbeing and things such as recently being ill or taking medications, especially antibiotics. Even the weather can have an impact, as your body needs sunlight to produce Vitamin D to keep you healthy.
There are long-term conditions and long-term treatments which can cause immunosuppression, which is when your immune system becomes weakened, which make you far more susceptible to catching infections and can also mean it is more difficult and takes longer to recover. These circumstances mean you have to be even more aware and extra vigilant, in keeping yourself protected from potential exposures to viruses and bacteria.
Having a balanced diet that includes plenty of fruit and vegetables is always important and can help keep colds at bay. You could also consider taking good vitamin supplements through the winter. Vitamins A, C, D, E, B6, B9 (folate), B12 and the minerals zinc, copper, selenium, and iron are all really important for your immune system to operate properly. There are some homeopathic options such as echinacea which can help give your immune system a boost and some people swear by taking a regular decent probiotic, which gives you ‘good’ or ‘friendly’ bacteria that can help to keep you healthy. It is worth doing a bit of research to see what suits you best.
The millennia old advice we were given throughout the pandemic about washing hands regularly, still holds as true as ever. Having germs on your hands and then touching your face or transferring to other surfaces and/or people, poses a high risk of infection. Obviously following current guidelines is always important, but regular handwashing with soap is an easy and effective way to reduce the risk of contracting and transmitting viruses.
Whilst the above methods can certainly boost your natural immune system, they do not guarantee protection. However, consciously boosting your immune system teamed with the game changing BioSURE PRO Protective Nasal Spray means you can really reduce your chances of being inconvenienced with being ill and regain confidence in making plans, reconnecting with friends and family and helping you live the life you want.
