Cold Defense


60 Vegetarian Capsules

Health First Cold-Defense uses powerful herbs and ancient Chinese wisdom to prevent and relieve cold and flu symptoms.

We are exposed to a multitude of bacteria and pathogens daily. Our own healthy immune systems protect us from most of these invaders. However, when our immune system is weakened with stress, trauma, poor nutrition, overeating, tiredness or intoxication, we leave vulnerabilities in our immune system, leaving us more susceptible to colds or flu.

When a cold or flu gets past our immune system, it often affects our stomach. Not only can we experience stomach upset, but the digestive ability of the stomach is weakened. A weakened digestive system makes fighting a cold or flu that much more difficult.

Cold-Defense helps the body deal with a cold or flu in several ways. The herb Huo Xiang helps to settle and strengthen the stomach. Next, Andrographis begins to neutralize the invading virus with its antimicrobial and antiviral properties. Meanwhile, the formula’s Ginseng and Astragalus re-strengthen the immune system and act as energy for the Andrographis.

An important element of the Cold-Defense formula is one overlooked by similar formulas. Overcoming the infection with herbs such as Andrographis is not enough. The infection’s toxins must be released from the body or they will hide in the tissues adversely affecting long-term health. The Fang Feng in Cold-Defense helps the body open its natural channels for expelling the toxins, which also reduces related neck and shoulder pains.
