How to beat the common cold?

During the winter months, one of the most common complaints aside from the cold weather itself is the common cold.  To be certain, the common cold is caused by one of more than 100 different viruses which means that antibiotics are an ineffective treatment option.

In most cases, the common cold is cause by rhinoviruses, but there are others you have to worry about too.  Of course, you want to ensure that you wash your hands regularly and get plenty of rest.  You’ll also want to ensure that you eat plenty of fruits and vegetables during the winter months.

Some researchers suspect that one reason for the increase in colds during the winter months is due to a lack of vitamin D.  Vitamin D is produced by your body in response to sunlight which is lacking in the winter, of course.

Herbal and dietary remedies for the common cold:

  1. Echinacea
  2. Siberian Ginseng
  3. American Ginseng
  4. Vitamin D
  5. Vitamin C
  6. Garlic
  7. Zinc
  8. Elderberry extract
