Combat Cold & Flu Season

I cannot stand being sick.

As someone addicted to checking things off the to-do list, I find the common cold pretty torturous.

Being stuck at home all day long buried in blankets, feeling too hot, too cold, uncomfortable and exhausted, I start to wonder if this is the end.

A tad dramatic? Yes. Accurate? Also yes.

That is why you will find me obsessively hand-sanitizing and avoiding coughers like the plague.

Nothing makes you more appreciative of a healthy body than being sick, right? So take every measure to prevent catching cold and flu bugs this season with these all-natural defences!

There may be no cure to the common cold, but we can take our health into our own hands by boosting immunity during the winter months.

Supplements are a great way to make sure you are getting enough of the key immunity-boosting nutrients that aren’t always easy to get through foods. Luckily, Jamieson has a great line-up of products designed to battle cold and flu season!

FluShield5805 EN

FluShield is formulated with a premium and uniquely potent form of Echinacea, the well-known herbal remedy chosen for its high-concentration of immune boosting properties. Triple-standardized pharmaceutical processing captures the most beneficial plant compounds and removes immune-suppressing isobutylamides, which commonly occur in other Echinacea formulas. FluShield fights off viral and bacterial invaders, effectively and naturally protecting you from the dreaded flu bug.

Vitamin D5253 EN

If there is only one supplement you’re going to take this winter, go with Vitamin D. Did you know taking Vitamin D decreases your risk of getting influenza by 58 per cent when taken during the winter? Pure, naturally sourced D3 supports the immune system during the season. It is one of the many important functions of Vitamin D in the body. Vitamin D3 is naturally formed in the body when skin is exposed to sunlight, but here in Canada, Vitamin D production in the body stalls between late October and early April due to low UVB levels. Available in soft gel, droplet, chewy and gummy varieties, take Vitamin D your way.

Effervescent C6735_BI

Vitamin C, well known to stop colds in their tracks, helps the immune system fight infection, bacteria and viruses. This all-natural formula is sweetened with stevia and contains a beneficial dose of revitalizing Vitamin C plus energizing B vitamins and electrolytes. The convenient tablets dissolve easily in water to transform into a tasty tangerine drink. Stay hydrated while satisfying your Vitamin C needs, without any artificial flavours and colours. The convenient carry case is ideal for taking your C on-the-go!

Super Garlic Oil2300 EN

As delicious as garlic is in rich pasta dishes and comforting soups and stews, heating it strips away the fantastic health benefits. This versatile healing herb has long been known for its antiviral and antimicrobial properties. Super Garlic Oil supports a strong immune system and provides antibiotic, antifungal and antiviral action to help fight infections. Jamieson’s Super Garlic Oil contains only unrefined, pure and concentrated garlic oil. In an easy-to swallow soft-gel capsule, this supplement provides all the awesome benefits of raw garlic with no odour or aftertaste.


Along with staying hydrated, getting plenty of sleep, eating nutritious foods and exercising regularly, this cold and flu season should be a breeze!
