Best Herbal Remedy for the Winter Cold

Source Naturals Wellness Formula, 90 Tablets
Amongst all the herbs in my medicine cabinet, my most treasured is my bottle of "Source Naturals Wellness Formula." Having two young school aged children; the possibility of getting sick during the winter school months is a sure thing. As soon as I feel it coming on I dose up with this wellness formula which contains Olive Leaf Extract and Metabolic C. It contains a blend of 30 different immune boosting herbs and seven different vitamins and minerals. I first tried this product when my daughter was a year old and I haven't stopped using it since. I recommend taking it at the first sign of illness as it may help it from becoming a full blown cold and or sinus infection, which is what my colds turn into. I highly recommend this for men (like my husband), since I know most men are babies when they get sick. I have purchased an extra supply in advance to gear up for this winter season, something tells me this one is going to be a bad one. The price point on this product may seem a little high, but it's worth not having to pay for a couple of days of missed work and a doctors visit, only for them to tell you to drink plenty of fluid and get some rest. I have also used the kids wellness formula for my children, which is in liquid form. The kids don't seem to mind the taste, but it goes too quickly because of the amount I have to give them. A word of advice; I have been told to opt for the tablets over the capsules by an herbalist, as they are more potent. They do have a strong smell of olives (like the sour Spanish olives), and the tablets are quite large. Be sure to drink plenty of water as well. It can also be taken in a lower dose as a maintenance formula. I hope we all have a healthier year in 2012.

I have used this before too, and it works great! They are huge, stinky pills, but it's worth it! I have found these pills at Vitamin World. They are the ones who actually encouraged us to try these. We take them a long with Echinacea.

@ Hairdresseronfire, That is cool you have heard of them also. I have never been to Vitamin World. I will have to check them out. I do a lot of my shopping through Vitacost.com. They are really reasonable and by the time I have paid the $4.99 shipping it is cheaper than driving into town. It also has Echinacea in the formula too, so careful not to overdo it on that one :). I find combining this with extra Vitamin D works well.
