Natural Cold Remedies/$100 GNC Gift Card Giveaway

Share

February can be an awfully cold, dreary, and sickly month for some. In my house we have, unfortunately, had our share of sickness this winter. From tummy bugs, to colds, to the flu & pneumonia...we are ready for the Spring!

I read on MSN not long ago that this has been one of the worst cold & flu seasons. If you are one of those unlucky folks that's fighting a cold, here are a few ways to hopefully get over it quicker and some great products you can find to help you out at GNC.

1. Probiotics! We are a firm believer of probiotics here in our house.
What are Probiotics?
Probiotics work to keep a healthy balance of intestinal flora. They reduce the amount of harmful bacteria by replenishing and maintaining the “friendly” bacteria.*The depletion of “good” bacteriacan occur as a result of poor diet,taking certain antibiotics, stress,food poisoning, travelers' diarrhea or poor overall digestive health.

The cultures in GNC's Ultra ProbioticComplex 50 have been clinically shown to replenish healthy bacteria in the digestive tract. Each capsule provides 50 billion live and active cultures of Lactobacillusacidophilus and Bifidobacterium.

2. Remember colds can last 10-14 days. I know, a real bummer. Antibiotics will not help cuz it's viral.

3. Alkalol! We LOVE alkalol in our house! Alkalol is an alkaline saline solution specially formulated to clean and moisturize the nasal passages, dissolve mucus, kill germs and bacteria, and provide natural relief from the symptoms of sinusitis and allergies. GNC offers Netipots, which serves the same purpose, as well here.

4. Cool Mist Humidifier. Another great natural relief for stuffy noses & congestion. Especially for kids!

5. Mentholatum or Vicks Vapo Rub for kids.

6. Saline Solution is a great natural nasal spray to use 3 times a day if needed for stuffy noses.

7. Vitamin C as well as other natural supplements can boost your overall immune health. You can find a wide variety of supplements at GNC by clicking here.
Want It? Click here to visit GNC's home page. They are currently offering free shipping on orders over $100 and BOGO 50% off sports, vitamins, supplements, & herbs!
