Boosting your Immune System for Winter

Summer is gone and Winter is coming!

HealthDirect, an Australian government-funded service, is predicting a bad flu season this year with influenza diagnoses already exceeding previous averages throughout April. Now is the time to boost your immune system!

Our Pharmacists and assistants recommend ArmaForce© by Bioceuticals or Immune Defence© by Ethical Nutrients. These both contain the natural products Andrographis, Echinacea and Zinc. A systematic review in 2017 found that Andrographis improves overall symptoms of URTI as well as shortening the duration of the cold. ArmaForce contains added vitamin C and olive leaf extract while Immune Defence contains a larger dose of Andrographis with added ginseng and turmeric. Come in store and talk to the team about boosting your immune system!
