Best Supplements for Cold and Flu Season
It’s that time of year again: cold and flu season! Throughout the winter months, many people will get a cold, the flu—or, if they are really unlucky, both. Those who have experienced either of these know how rough these illnesses can be. People may need to take off work, carry tissues with them wherever they go, and endure the uncomfortable stares of people in public while they are sniffling loudly.
So, what can be done to naturally speed up the healing process—so people’s bodies can get back to their healthy state—without relying on medications? One great option is to take natural health supplements. At Black Vegan Shop, a Black-owned company, we offer a variety of supplements to naturally boost immune systems, help minimize cold and flu symptoms, and speed up the recovery process overall. Read below to learn more about these various health supplements.
Irish Sea Moss
Irish Sea Moss is an all-encompassing superfood that is naturally found along coastlines and is known for its high nutritional content. More importantly, it naturally works to boost the immune system, which is important because having a strong immune system will both decrease the chances of getting the flu or a cold, and will help to manage the severity of the symptoms if someone does get sick.
Irish Sea Moss contains 92 vitamins and minerals that are already naturally found in the body, ensuring that no foreign products are put into the body. Just to name a few, it contains potassium, phosphorus, zinc, calcium, iron, magnesium, B-vitamins, and vitamin C. Sea Moss is a great supplement because it can be mixed into smoothies, other beverages, desserts, and more—a convenient choice for those who do not like taking pills!
Similarly to Irish Sea Moss, Elderberry Capsules primarily work to boost the immune system. The berries are packed with antioxidants and vitamins. This organic and vegan health supplement has been used for years to naturally boost immunity, decrease stress, tackle inflammation, and protect the heart. More importantly, it has been shown to prevent and ease cold and flu symptoms. At Black Vegan Shop, we recommend that our Elderberry Capsules be taken two at a time, twice per day to see the best benefits and minimize your experiences with the cold and flu viruses this winter.
Black Seed Oil
Black Seed Oil, also known as Nigella Sativa, tackles multiple areas of health. It has been used for thousands of years and is known for its therapeutic benefits. While it has been used for cosmetic benefits, such as aiding in weight loss and improving skin conditions, it also works internally as an antiviral, which is exactly the type of treatment that will help during cold and flu season—particularly because the flu is a virus. Additionally, it works as a painkiller and an anti-inflammatory, issues that may arise if someone gets sick from a cold or the flu. It is recommended to take two teaspoons of black seed oil daily.
The amazing thing about our natural health supplements is that they target cold and flu symptoms and treatment while also tackling other potential health issues in the body. Multiple benefits are found in just one type of supplement! So, get a proactive head start on cold and flu season. By adding some of these supplements into your daily diet, people can be as prepared as possible for cold and flu season and decrease their chances of falling ill.
