"I think I'm coming down with something"

How often do you hear “I think I’m coming down with something”?  This is a common saying when feeling the beginning symptoms of a cold.  While we are in the midst of cold and flu season, here are some tips to speed your recovery from pre cold symptoms.  Boost your intake of Vitamin C and Zinc, both of which can reduce the time of your cold.  Stay hydrated to keep your body running optimally while it fights the germs.  Your mucous membranes will stay moist, preventing viruses and bacteria from entering.  Eat a diet rich in vegetables, fruits, and whole grains to enhance your immune defense with phytonutrients and antioxidants.  Most importantly, get your rest!  Aim to sleep more than normal, atleast 6-8 hours, to give your body time to repair.  Follow these easy tips and survive the winter.
