Apart from yearning for winter to be over, there are many practical steps we can take to safeguard against winter illness; the first step is to think positive – think winter wellness!
Unichem Prestons Pharmacy have everything covered when it comes to equipping us for this most challenging season – from flu jabs to expert advice and remedy recommendations from owner and pharmacist Ed Dawwas and his friendly team. Flu inoculations are integral to winter health, but Ed also recommends natural supplements as extra protection against succumbing to those pesky viral or bacterial infections.
Vitamin C is a natural immune booster for all seasons, but in winter especially, it helps reduce the severity and duration of ailments, as well as providing antioxidant support in both tissue and wound repair. Gut and digestive health is a major contributor in boosting immunity and, because probiotics are designed to maintain and restore good gut bacteria, probiotics are superstar supplements when it comes to winter wellness.
Another star supplement and natural active vaccine is Buccaline. A 1×7 tablet treatment provides three months protection against bacterial complications of colds – i.e. sneezes, runny noses, sore throats and coughs, while a second course provides full winter protection. It’s the ideal additional protection to the flu vaccine, so for optimal protection, both are recommended.
With these supplements available in tablet, powder and liquid form, Ed and his team happily advise customers on which will work best for them. Find Unichem Prestons Pharmacy at Shop 3 420 Marshland Road, phone 03 281 7889 or visit www.facebook.com/unichemprestons.
