Cold and flu season is upon us, but that doesn’t mean we have to accept the fever, muscle aches, sore throat, runny nose, or any of the other uncomfortable symptoms that come with the territory as inevitable.
Just in time for cold and flu season, AOR has introduced the Cold & Flu formula to their already impressive product line of health supplements.
AOR’s Cold & Flu contains a unique combination of clinically proven bolstering herbs and minerals, specifically formulated to reduce the severity of cold and flu symptoms and bolster the immune system at the same time.
This formula combines a powerful punch of botanical plants Andrographis, South African geranium and Tinospora cordifolia along with zinc and copper, which are key minerals that support the cells of the immune system.
Andrographis is a herb native to India and Sri Lanka. Widely used in Southeast Asia before antibiotics were discovered for its antimicrobial action, Andrographis has been shown in multiple studies to effectively relieve cold and flu symptoms such as fever, sore throat and cough, and support the body’s natural defences, reducing the number of sick days patients took from five days to three days.
In one trial, 208 men and women with upper respiratory tract infections were given 60 mg of Andrographis or a placebo per day. Following just two days of supplementation, symptoms of sore throat, fatigue, sleep disturbance and nasal secretions were significantly improved with Andrographis supplementation.
In another trial of slightly longer duration (four days), 158 adults with colds found that treatment with Andrographis significantly reduced cold symptoms such as earache, sleeplessness, nasal drainage and sore throat. These results were seen by day two and even more by day four of the trial. These participants also experienced reduced earaches, phlegm, coughing and headaches.
South African geranium is a herb with extensive use in South African traditional medicine. It has natural antibacterial properties and has been shown to stimulate the immune system and help the body fight against viruses. It enhances the body’s natural healing ability and has been studied for its ability to reduce symptoms associated with upper respiratory infections.
Tinospora cordifolia (also known as Guduchi and heart-leaved moonseed) is an herbaceous vine indigenous to the tropical areas of India, China, Myanmar and Sri Lanka. Historically it has been used to treat a wide range of ailments including colds, fevers, headaches and throat infections. Tinospora has been shown to be an immune modulator, helping to relieve sneezing, nasal obstruction, nasal discharge and inner nasal swelling due to cold and flu or allergies.
Copper and zinc are essential for healthy immune function. Having a deficiency in either of these minerals depresses the immune function. Even a moderate deficiency can impair important immune system cells. In clinical studies, zinc significantly reduced the duration of cold symptoms such as cough, nasal discharge and muscle aches when compared with a placebo.
All of these clinically proven immune bolstering herbs and minerals are in AOR’s revolutionary new Cold & Flu. The unique formulation combines these traditional herbs with proven mineral support for complete and effective cold and flu relief.
