Combatting Cold and Flu Symptoms

Difference between Colds & Flu

The common cold and flu are both respiratory tract illnesses that are contagious but both these conditions are caused by different viruses.

The flu (influenza) is caused by the influenza viruses. The flu is more severe than the cold and can result in complications such as pneumonia, bacterial infections and hospitalizations.

The common cold is caused by a number of viruses, e.g., rhinovirus. Colds are milder and do not cause serious health complications and hospitalizations.

Symptoms of the Flu & Colds

Flu symptoms include: fever, chills, extreme fatigue and weakness, muscle pain, headache, vomiting.

Cold symptoms include: runny nose, stuffy nose, coughing, sneezing, mild headache.

  • Anti-Aging Properties – Chaga is very high in anti oxidants. Less oxidative stress causes less physical signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging skin and grey hair.

CBD helps to reduce inflammation in the body and manage pain. Supplementing with CBD oil increases cannabinoids and restores balance to the endocannabinoid system. The human body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that receives and translates signals from cannabinoids. It produces some cannabinoids of its own, which are called endocannabinoids. The ECS helps regulate functions such as sleep, immune-system responses, and pain.

CBD GUT Probiotics capsules 

Nature’s Relief CBD Probiotic capsules form the foundation of good and optimal gut health. It is specifically formulated to improve gut health. Good gut health is essential for a healthy immune system, optimal brain health and general overall health.

Your gut is also linked to your immune system. A gut that is inflamed can result in defective immune function, where your immune system over responds (overactive immune response) to a large molecule, toxin or microbe that has now passed across the inflamed gut wall. About 80% of the immune system is located in the gut. If you do not have a healthy gut you cannot have a healthy immune system. An unhealthy immune system can cause infections, inflammation and autoimmune diseases. The brain and the gut are connected. Stress can affect the brain and gut connection in a negative way, increasing the risk of gastrointestinal disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory Bowel Disease, peptic ulcers, gastro-oesophageal reflux disease.
