The flu season may not officially start until later on this year, but we moms and dads all know the “real” start date of this unpleasant time of year: the first day of school.
Yes, we love our kids and yes, we are probably excited to have them back in school and settling into a routine. But as we know all too well, it won’t take long for our precious kiddos to bring home some nuclear-powered germs from their classmates that will have the whole family aching and sneezing and coughing in no time.
In order to stay as healthy as we can – both at the start of the school year and into the rest of fall and winter – it is important to take a proactive approach to our health. Instead of waiting for the fever to hit, the chills to set in and our throats to start hurting, it is important to do what we can to prevent those nasty cold and flu germs from taking hold in our bodies.
Vi-Rid to the rescue
Just in time for back to school, we are excited to announce the release of our brand-new Vi-Rid product that was designed expressly with keeping common colds and the flu at bay. If you are already feeling poorly, Vi-Rid can also help shorten the duration of cold and flu and get you back on your feet as soon as possible.
OTC products only treat the symptoms
While over-the-counter medications typically target the symptoms of a cold or flu, Vi-Rid goes one step further and also fights the actual virus that made you ill in the first place. It can also help to boost the strength of your immune system so that you are able to fight off those industrial strength kid germs, as well as all of the bugs and bacteria that seem to be everywhere when the weather gets cold.
What is in Vi-Rid?
Vi-Rid is made up of an all-natural blend of healing herbs, including Andrographis, a powerful anti-inflammatory that has been found to be great at reducing fever. Andrographis can also help to stop a nagging cough, as well as activate your body’s own supply of T cells so they can get to work fighting off bacteria and viruses.
Another super herb that is found in Vi-Rid is called Lonicera – also known as honeysuckle. This sweet-smelling plant has been used for centuries in Chinese medicine to combat the flu by preventing the flu virus’s ability to replicate itself.
Licorice root is another key ingredient in Vi-Rid; it contains a natural compound called glycyrrhizin that has been shown to fight off certain strains of the flu. These ingredients, along with six other powerful herbs found in Vi-Rid, can all help us get through the start of the school year as healthily as possible.
