Colostrum, Zinc, Hyperhealth, Cold & Flu Remedies

December 2006 - Print | Index

Remember the old saying, as true now as ever:
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!"

Start prevention now! It's easy and inexpensive to give your immune system a boost for the winter with NOW® Ultimate Zinc-C and NOW® Elderberry & Zinc. These tasty lozenges contain:

  • Zinc: required by the thymus gland -- a major link in the immune system -- in order to produce highly differentiated and educated cells that can fight off the onslaught of new bacteria and viruses.
  • Propolis: a substance that bees use to build and sterilize their hives. It is their greatest resource for fighting bacteria, viruses and fungus. Propolis has the unique characteristic that it remains effective even with prolonged use.
  • Vitamin A and Vitamin C: both major immune boosters that can be depleted by stress.
  • Elderberry extract: inhibitor of enzymes that can weaken cells.

Colostrum is another great helper for your immune system. YES New Zealand Colostrum is pure bovine colostrum from New Zealand, with certificates of analysis and source verification. The quality is excellent -- purer than its American counterpart -- and it is one of the few New Zealand Colostrum products on the market, available exclusively at Vitamin Express.

Homeopathic Cold & Flu Remedies

Homeopathic products are great for people who might be worried about interactions with other medications that they are taking. One of our favorites is Boiron Oscillocosinum, the most popular product in Europe for flu symptoms.

Boericke & Tafel Alpha CF is another formula that is highly endorsed by our customers as effectively stopping the onset of colds and flu, currently 35% off the regular price!

Umcka ColdCare from Nature's Way® is a homeopathic remedy based on a remarkable South African herb that appears to reduce or possibly even halt cold symptoms from spreading from the throat to the sinuses, lungs, and tonsils. We have it for 40% off the regular price!

Herbal Cold & Flu Remedies

Gaia Herbs' Quick Defense and Gaia Herbs' Whole Body Defense are two great herbal products to have on hand for the cold & flu season. Whole Body Defense should be taken as a preventative for the duration of the cold & flu season. If in fact there is an onset of cold or flu, then Quick Defense should be taken for 2 to 4 days to support the body's response. Both of these products are currently 20% off.

Information -- the Key to Health

There is a new link on our home page to a Health Encyclopedia. This is a quick, free and easy resource for you to use to find out more about nutrients and health conditions.

The same company that provides the content for our Health Encylopedia also publishes a software product called HyperHealth. Myself, our employees and our customers have found HyperHealth very helpful in finding detailed information about nutrients, drugs, and health conditions. It's the equivalent of having a 32,000-page health reference book at your fingertips!

Check out the HyperHealth product page for more information about this valuable resource. You will also find a link on that page to download a trial version of the software, completely free! HyperHealth is the perfect gift for someone who wants to study nutrition, is a practicing health professional, or simply anyone who is serious about learning more about their health.

The BEST of health to you!
