What to Do About Cold and Flu
The common cold, an infection of the upper respiratory tract, is caused by any of 200 different viruses. The viral infection and the immune system's battle against it produce the all-too-familiar symptoms: sore throat, nasal congestion, runny nose, watery eyes, hacking cough and sometimes fever.
It is a viral infection, so things like antibiotics, which are often mistakenly prescribed for colds, won't help. Giving antibiotics for viral diseases is a distressingly common practice. Studies have shown that 60 percent of patients who went to the doctor with one of the viruses that cause the common cold received an inappropriate prescription for antibiotics.
Sales of cold and flu formulas slipped between 2009 and 2010, mainly due to the economic downturn, and partially due to consumers’ decision to turn to natural remedies.
Nature’s Bioceuticals responded to consumer demand by developing a formula that contains a blend of over 20 herbs as active ingredients. The formula not only alleviates cold and flu symptoms, but also boosts the immune system.
Nature’s Bioceuticals confirms the herbal remedies nature has provided us for centuries.
