It’s that dreaded time of the year – cold and flu season. The World Health Organization estimates that 3- to 5-million people worldwide contract a serious case of seasonal flu each year, while tens of millions experience milder cases. Between 250,000 and 500,000 people globally die from flu every year.
There are many lifestyle changes you can make to reduce your risk of coming down with the cold and flu. You’ve probably heard about getting adequate sleep, exercising regularly, avoiding smoking and excessive drinking, but what tends to not get the focus it deserves is our diet.
Eating a balanced plant-based diet is crucial in preventing and fighting against common colds and flu. When you support gut health – the foundation to immunity – you have the ability to cut the duration of a simple cold or flu, or keep them at bay completely. Diets that incorporate raw, fresh fruit and vegetables, herbs such as ginger and turmeric, and bone broth are extremely helpful.
We’ve created a unique Cold and Flu Support Package that helps boost immunity and easy-to-order package can be conveniently shipped right to your door so you can get on the cold and flu prevention track immediately.
Add the following immunity-boosting foods to your diet to amp up your body’s cold and flu prevention power and survive this year’s cold and flu:
- Organic Chicken Broth – The magic elixir of health foods, our delicious broth is chock-full of essential vitamins and minerals. We make our broth the traditional way – in small batches and slow simmered over low heat for 48 hours.

A cold or flu not only disrupts your health, but also your family life, school, work, and even wallet. According to a study from the 2012-2013 flu season, 230 million workdays were missed due to flu-related illnesses, costing employers a whopping $30.4 billion in healthcare and lost productivity. Furthermore, the average trip to the doctor and purchasing medication could set someone back $130 per visit.
