Are you sick of getting colds & flu

Australian adults suffer from 2 to 4 colds a year with children contracting up to 10 colds a year. That’s an estimated 96 billion colds a year!!! So the chances of avoiding a nasty cold or flu can be slim particularly when you are exposed to those germs from other people on buses, in shopping centres, your work, and children. Eating a healthy diet of vitamin rich fruits and vegetables will go a long way to preventing illness but boosting your immune system with therapeutic strength herbs gives you an even greater chance of giving those colds the flick!

One natural herbal supplement which can help strengthen your immune system is Astragalus. Astragalus is a herb commonly used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which has a long history as an immune system booster. Astragalus has amazing antimicrobial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory capabilities which has led to its popularity as the go-to herb to combat upper respiratory illnesses. A regimen of Astragalus throughout the winter months may help you to prevent contracting colds or flu. In fact, Astragalus is so safe that it can be taken all year round to boost your immune system.

Astragalus can be taken in supplementation form on its own or in combination with other herbs, which may have potential benefits for your immune system. In Traditional Chinese Medicine Astragalus is commonly combined with other herbs like ginseng, licorice and angelica to get the most beneficial immune supporting effects.
