As the Fall season is upon us, we enjoy the cooler weather and it’s also a season for the common cold and flu. It’s very important that we practice good hygiene throughout the day in order to protect our immune system. Although exposure to the cold and flu bugs are unavoidable, it’s for our benefit that we take good care of our physical health such as taking supplements that help boost our immune system and always wash our hands to remove unwanted germs.
