Flu Info

Influenza, commonly known as "the flu", is a highly infectious disease caused by a family of influenza viruses. It affects mainly the throat, lungs and nose. The most common symptoms are chills, sore throat, fever, runny nose, muscle pains, headaches, coughing, fatigue and general body discomfort.

In most cases of the flu, recovery takes up to 2 weeks. Some people are at high risk for developing severe flu-related complications (like bacterial pneumonia). These people include the elderly (65 or older) and people with pre-existing medical conditions (asthma, lung diseases, diabetes) and those with compromised immune systems.

Although it is often confused with other influenza-like illnesses (like the common cold,) influenza is a more severe disease caused by a completely different virus. Influenza may produce nausea and vomiting, particularly in children, but these symptoms are more common in the unrelated gastroenteritis, which is sometimes inaccurately referred to as "stomach flu" or "24-hour flu".

There some natural health remedies that may help alleviate the symptoms of the flu. It is important to see your health care practitioner, if you believe you are infected with the influenza virus.

Product Reviews

  • Pricey

    star

    Just bought it for my son after hearing about the wonders of elderflower with immune issues. In retrospect it’s a pricey tonic - 120ml bottle at 10ml/day will only get him through 12 days. I’m not too happy about the fructose content either. I will do some research into other brands containing the active ingredients to see what else is out there

  • Take it every day

    star

    I have been taking this product for the past year. I am prone to Bronchial Asthma every winter. I have noticed since taking this product that when I do catch a virus I don't seem to take as long to get over it. I used to cough consistently throughout the winter and now I can get over a flu virus within weeks without the lingering cough. I do take extra if I feel I am becoming unwell and continue until I get better. I then resume my 1 tab daily, great product!

  • Speedy relief and recovery.

    star

    The first time I tried this it had been a free gift from Healthpost. I had caught a cold and cough from a 2 year old, and expected little but a 2 week sniffle. I believe the Viraforte shut down all symptoms inside 4 days. Having been a teacher I caught colds often. 4 days was an amazing recovery time, with no recurrence, and I bought more for the next time.
