Staying Healthy This Cold & Flu Season

The new year is here! But with 2020 comes one of the largest fluctuations in United States public health during the average year: Cold and flu season.

Every year, the weather takes a turn and delivers a swift kick to immune systems across the nation. And while influenza can be caught any time of the year, flu viruses are most common during the colder months of the year. With the more susceptible times starting in October, the peak time for catching the flu comes between December and February.

While some immune systems are stronger than others, everybody has a risk of catching a cold or the flu. Younger children and the elderly make up the majority of hospitalized flu cases every year, due to their weaker immune systems.

Many of you are probably wondering, “What can I do to keep myself healthy this cold and flu season?” Fear not, we here at Nutrasal are here to help! We have a few simple tips to avoid cold and flu this year, specifically a few sanitation precautions you can take to keep yourself clean and disease free.

  1. Wash your hands

While it may seem rudimentary, one of the most effective actions you can take in combating viruses and germs is simply keeping your hands clean. We pick up an immense amount of bacteria at work, at the store, even in our own homes. Germs are everywhere, and good ol’ water and antibacterial soap does a bang-up job of sending them packing. Also be sure to change the hand towels in your bathroom on a regular basis.

  1. Don’t touch your face while you’re out

Again, a rather simple step to take, but a large number of illnesses happen when you inadvertently touch your eyes or mouth with dirty hands. Keep your hands away from your mouth, eyes, and nose while you’re out and about. If you need to wipe your eyes or nose, use a tissue. If you’re about to eat, refer to our first tip above.

  1. Keep your distance from other potentially sick people

If you spend the majority of your time around large groups of people, you are absolutely at a higher risk of catching a bug. If you’re at the supermarket, your office or place of work, or on the bus or train, try to keep at least a few feet between yourself and others. If you see someone who appears to be sick, widen your distance to that individual.

  1. Keep germ-fighting tools with you at all times

For some of us, keeping our distance from germs is unavoidable. Those of us who take public transportation to and from work every day are subjected to some of the dirtiest environments modern society has to offer. But even germs in legion can be battled during your daily commute. Keeping sanitation utilities such as antibacterial wipes, hand sanitizer, or even gloves on your person during your commute can make a huge difference. Also don’t be afraid to wipe down your keyboard, phone, mobile devices, and whatever else you come into regular contact with on a daily basis.

  1. Take your daily vitamins and supplements

Keeping the outside of your body clean is vital to staying healthy during cold and flu season, but the insides are just as important. Taking immune system-boosting supplements give your body that extra help it really needs in fighting off cold and flu germs on the day-to-day. Here are a few that can help you out:

  • LipoZome C is specifically made to support healthy immune system functions, which gives you a leg up against flu and cold.
