common cold and recurrent infections

Weather impairing your health? Do you feel exhausted, do you have a scratchy throat always accompanied by frequent coughing and a runny nose? Then you get a common cold. Or are you plagued by recurrent infections?

Then you should support your immune system!

Common colds are mostly acute viral infections of the upper respiratory tract. Adults suffer common colds two to three times a year, pre-schoolers even five to eight times. Common colds are the most common reason for doctor visits and sick leave. Despite the high number of cases, today there is still no way to combat a common cold. One reason is the diversity of the cause. More than 200 viruses can course symptoms of the common cold.

Thereby the common cold is to be distinguished from actual flu, which is associated with severe disease symptoms. Varying annually vaccinations are used for prevention. However, there is no vaccination against the common cold.



* Zinc contributes to the normal function of the immune system.

A weak immune system increases susceptibility to infections with the common cold

The occurrence of a cold is directly related to a weakened immune system. The weakening of the immune system can have many causes. Physical and psychological stress, not recovering from illness or intense physical activity may be reasons for this.

Ways to strengthen the immune system

To prevent a cold, strengthening the immune system is one of the most important preventive measures, both before and during a cold. There are many different products, which aim to strengthen the immune system (e.g. echinacea, ginseng, aloe vera, reishi). The latter is a fungus, as well as the almond fungus Agaricus blazei Murill, whose effect was first recognised as an immunomodulator in Japan.
