Common Cold Info

The term 'common cold' refers to a viral infection in the upper respiratory tract. It affects primarily the nose, where symptoms include coughing, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing, and fever which usually resolve in seven to ten days, with some symptoms lasting up to three weeks. Over 200 viruses are implicated in the cause of the common cold; with rhinoviruses being the most common. Rhinovirus literally means virus of the nose.

The common cold primarily affects the nose, the throat (pharyngitis), and the sinuses (sinusitis), occasionally involving either or both eyes (conjunctivitis.) Symptoms are mostly due to the body's immune response to the infection rather than to tissue destruction by the viruses themselves. The primary method of prevention is by hand washing with some evidence to support the effectiveness of wearing face masks.

No cure for the common cold exists, but the symptoms can be treated. It is the most frequent infectious disease in humans with the average adult contracting two to three colds a year and the average child contracting between six and twelve. These infections have been with humanity since antiquity.

There are natural health remedies that may help alleviate the symptoms of the common cold. These mainly work by boosting and assisting existing immune function. Vitamin C, echinacea and propolis are beneficial in this.

Product Reviews

  • Great absorption

    star

    I've been using this product on a daily basis for a couple years. I believe it's important to supplement vitamin C in an ongoing way for the numerous roles it plays in the body. I tried various types of vitamin C over the years, but I always ended up with diarrhoea. The BioBalance product however works well for me, my body absorbs it properly and I don't have issues. It allows me to have 1g daily very easily.

    First sign of a tickle in the throat, I suck one of these lozenges, and I never develop a sore throat. Taste great too.

  • Highly recommend Liposomal BioBalance!

    star

    I highly recommend Liposomal BioBalance Vitamin C. My Mother and I have also tried the Bcomplex and Magnesium, from their range and highly recommend them both. The B Complex and Vitamin C are our number 1 to go to for every day living! We haven’t been sick since taking Liposomal BioBalance Vitamin C. Normally if I go near someone who has a runny nose, a cold or a flu and two weeks later, soon enough I have it. (I have children who are in childcare, so we are constantly catching bugs) Normally I get strong migraines with colds but since taking these vitamins I haven’t had a single sniffle for months!! I cannot look back at how my life was before with us always being run down. Great vitamins and work like never before!! Highly recommended to everyone. These vitamins work within the first week, no waiting months to notice results. Normal vitamin C flavour, great in a glass of orange juice or fruit smoothie or even by itself etc.
