The weather is (finally) cooling down.
With that will come the “Flu Season”
Do some research on flu jabs and then make up your own mind what is right for you. (We have some interesting articles if you want to get them from us but they might no be in agreement with your doctor’s advice).
We recommend everyone take Vitamin C on a regular basis.
Two to three grams per day is a great protective strategy,
When you do pick up a bug, what then?
We see so many people make a big mistake when trying to use nutrients for therapeutic reasons.
They take far too little of it.
If you have an active infection my recommendation is to take 2-3 grams every two hours.
The best way to ingest Vitamin C is to use a powder and mix it with drinking water. A level teaspoon is around 2.5 grams and that amount is palatable in 700ml of water.
Vitamin C is water soluble and your white blood cells use it up in less than two hours when fighting infections.
Most react to that saying that will give them the ‘runs’ but studies have clearly shown that the body can tolerate fifty to one hundred grams without digestive upset when and infection is active.
If you do happen to get loose bowels, cut the dose back until things settle down…
But that will be rare when active infection exists.
[We are often asked about just taking orange or lemon juice. A typical orange contains 70 to100 milligrams of Vitamin C. Eating 200 oranges per day is not really going to work for anyone.]
One last thing…
The earlier you start this program, the better the results will be for you. Don’t delay if you start to feel an infection coming on.
As always, a good immune system is the best thing to counter threats of infection.
We are happy to make more detailed suggestions on this.
