Help Your Child Fight Cold And Flu With These Powerful Supplements

During this cold season, nobody wants to get sick with a cough, fever, headache, congestion, or stuffed nose. To avoid this and keep your child protected you should up your cold and flu protection game and strengthen your kid’s immunity by stocking up vitamins and supplements to boost your little one’s immune system.

To help guide you, we have compiled a rundown of the most notable cold and flu supplements, which experts suggest are the best supplements you should load to keep your little one healthy and strong.

Omega-3 (Fish oil)

When you think of cold and flu, fish is probably the last thing that comes to mind. Well, your thinking needs to change. Experts suggest DHA, a type of omega- 3 found in fatty fish increases white blood cell activity, which not only contributes to a child’s healthy growth and development but also boosts immunity.

This, therefore, means fewer bouts of the cold and flu for your child, and fewer trips to the doctor, as it is theorized that an immune system boost comes from the oil’s high content of vitamin D.

Some of the boosters that you want to keep close to you include; Scotts Emulsion and Seven Seas.

Vitamin D

Yes, in addition to known immune boosters, such as getting enough physical activity and eating a healthy diet, you also want to include on your shelf supplements that contain vitamin D. This is because very few foods provide enough of it.

Though the best source of vitamin D comes from the sun’s UV rays absorbed through the skin, we should stock up supplemental options for our babies since some of us live in areas where UV rays are weak, or we just don’t want to expose them to the sun.

You may consider trying this Vitamin D supplementation which could protect your young one against colds and flu.

In addition to dietary factors, let’s remember to always practice critical important factors that will enable in fighting against cold and flu, such as: getting adequate sleep, managing stress, regular physical activity, and good handwashing practices.
