2) Vitamin B12 for energy.
3) Source Natural’s Wellness Formula
I take two capsules of Source Naturals Wellness Formula daily and the results are awesome. Aside from the complement of vitamins including, C, D, and A, it also contains Zinc Citrate and Selenium in the form of Sodium Selenite. But the real treasure of this great supplement is the list of 21 different proven immune boosting herbs including Echinacea, Garlic Bulb, Goldenseal Root, Mullein Leaf, Astragalus Root, and various others.

Just squirt twice into your mouth every morning. Elderberry has been known for centuries to improve immunity.

Probiotics are basically our defense armada of bacteria that protect us against pathogenic, or harmful bacteria bacteria. It aids in our digestion and processing of nutrients.
These are the five nutrients that keep me healthy and full of vigor throughout the day. Other herbs that I will take if I do get sick, are garlic, ginger and Umcka extract. You can find Umcka at the co-op or health store and it really does a great job in shortening a cold. One very useful tip to implement when you feel like you might be coming down with a cold is to basically ingest as much raw garlic as you can stomach in one sitting. Garlic has extremely powerful antibiotic properties and will have a positive impact on your cold if not your breath.
You will still get sick from a cold unfortunately. But the cold does not have to be too severe, and by taking these supplements and herbs, you will be able to minimize the frequency of these events.
