Vitamin C to Prevent Colds

Cold and flu season in the U.S. stretches from November to March. According to the article that I've read, as much as 20 percent of the U.S. population contracts influenza (200,000 are hospitalized and 36,000 die) and most people get two or three colds.

To prevent a cold, try vitamin C, delivered either the old-fashioned way with a daily dose of orange or grapefruit juice, peaches, red peppers or other vitamin C-rich food, or with a vitamin supplement. Double up with Echinacea for an added boost.
