You can catch a cold at any time of year and with over 200 viruses that can cause the common cold it’s hard to avoid. Adults can experience an average of 2-4 colds a year and children as many as 5-10 a year. The immune system is the body’s natural defence mechanism against germs and a healthy lifestyle is a good way to support your immune system. Vitamin C is referred to as an essential nutrient because the body cannot make it or extensively store it and must be obtained from food. Be prepared with Blackmores BIO C® 500 Chewable which helps supports healthy immune function and reduces the severity and duration of common cold symptoms. It is also an antioxidant and helps reduce free radicals formed in the body.
