Vitamin 101: Fight under-the-weather feelings at the first sign

College permits no time for sickness, especially during finals. Immune systems are low after all-nighters and heightened stress, but don’t succumb to its effects. Boost your immune system and fight potential illness at the first symptoms with these choice health items.

  •  Airborne

It comes as effervescent (dissolvable) or chewable tablets loaded with over 13 vitamins, minerals and herbs. Taking Airborne is effective, easy and convenient for getting extra resistance to illness susceptibility.


  • Echinacea Tea

This nourishing tea combines herbs and extracts, simultaneously soothing sore throats and stabilizing the immune system.


  • Culturelle

A probiotic focused on the digestive tract, where 70 percent of your immune system is located. It has over 15 billion active cultures in each capsule, helping restore the natural balance of good bacteria and support your natural defenses against illness.


  • Zinc and Lysine

Zinc is required for overall maintenance of the human body and helps fight against common colds. Lysine is an essential amino acid in human nutrition, yet one the body cannot produce itself, consequently, it must be taken either by diet or supplementation. Studies show it aids in treating pain, minimizing anxiety and absorbing other nutrients.


  • Oscillococcinum

You won’t care about pronouncing its name once you know how well it works. It reduces duration and severity of flu-like symptoms, such as body aches, headaches, fever, chills and fatigue. Simply pour the little sugar-like pellets under your tongue and let them absorb.


For best results in avoiding sickness, don’t forget basic health practices: washing hands often, drinking lots of water and getting plenty of sleep. By following these health tips for supporting your immune system, your body will be strong and ready to take on whatever lies ahead.
