A common cold is a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract that includes your nose and throat. Symptoms usually appear one to three days after exposure and include the typical sore throat, runny or congested nose, cough, sneezing, low-grade fever and mild body aches. A fever higher than 39.4 C distinguishes a cold from a different type of viral infection.
Your immune system is the first defence against infectious organisms. It’s made up of a network of cells, tissues and organs that work together to create an immune response. Most of the time it does its job, but sometimes a weak link can allow for a virus or other infectious organisms to creep in and lead to illness.
Adults – Take 2 capsules 2 times per day with food or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. Take at the first signs of cold symptoms, a few hours before or after taking other medications. Consult a healthcare practitioner for use beyond 2 months.
