In recent years, people have reported longer recovery times and difficulty overcoming colds and flu.

In recent years, more people have complained about long recovery time after having a cold or flu. The symptoms of a cold or flu get better, but they cannot gain their energy or they feel tired for a long time.

We had to spend time at home and were not exposed to bacteria or viruses, which led us to weaken our immune system.

This blog will provide tips for alleviating tiredness and fatigue following a cold or flu.

Tip #1 - Do not overexert yourself

You might say "I know, of course!" but you may be preoccupied with looking after your family or working from home, making it difficult to take care of yourself.

When you feel tired, it's important to take a break and get enough rest. Remember to prioritise your health and well-being.

When you eat, it is advisable to choose easily digestible foods.

It’s best to avoid heavy or difficult-to-digest foods if you're not craving anything specific, as they require more energy to digest.

When you are tired, you are better to focus on healing yourself.

Tip #2 - Vitamins and Minerals

Be sure to eat foods that contain vitamins and minerals that support your immune system, such as vitamin C, zinc, and vitamin D, as well as B vitamins and magnesium, which help recover from fatigue. You may also want to use supplements temporarily.

The following supplements are products made with vitamins and minerals to boost immunity.

Biocare Immune Intensive

This product is recommended when you catch a cold that doesn't heal completely or feel weak and develop a cold sore. I also keep it at home. Contains vitamins A, D3, and C, zinc, magnesium, elderberry extract, and more.

Biocare NutriGuard Plus

It is a good product for maintaining immunity, containing vitamins A, C, E, and zinc.

Terranova Mushroom Synergy

In recent years, the efficacy of mushrooms has been attracting attention in Europe and America. This product was created with the expectation that mushrooms would have the ability to boost immunity.

Terranova Advanced Synergy B-complex

Supplementing with B vitamins helps in recovering from fatigue. Terranova is a vitamin B supplement made from natural plant-based ingredients.

N - Acetyl Cysteine

N-acetyl cysteine has excellent detoxification functions and functions that support cell regeneration and is a component that helps when your physical strength is low. It is also recommended after a cold or when you are prone to catching colds during the winter.

The reason why N-acetylcysteine ​​is so good at times of fatigue is that mitochondria are located within cells and are a place that produces important energy.

L-glutathione is a substance that repairs areas of the body damaged by free radicals and scavenges free radicals to prevent cell damage.

Taking N-acetylcysteine ​​increases plasma cysteine, increasing glutathione (GSH), which helps detoxification and cell regeneration.

British supplement companies Viridian and Biocare also sell it.

The above products can be purchased at Helios Homoepathy, Natural Dispensary, and various health shops. We ship to Japan and almost all countries around the world.
