COLD WAR* is your defense to the all defeating bugs that ravage our everyday lives. In today’s age where downtime is unacceptable, we simply do not have the time to be sick. That's why we created Cold War*. A blend of superfoods, minerals, and herbs that work together to combat illness and stop bugs in their tracks. Whether you’re trying to fight off a cold or simply have a big event ahead Cold War* has your back in the war against illness.
Vitamin C: Long known its immune benefits Vitamin C is a classic powerhouse to any flu fighting formula.
Vitamin D3: You may have had your Doctor talk about getting more sunlight. If so there's a primary reason. The sun is our primary source of Vitamin D3 and if you live in the Northern Hemisphere you are likely not getting enough. What's worse is recent science shows that even if you do, depending on your genetics, it may not matter as some people poorly absorb D3 from sunlight simply based on their DNA. The good news is D3 is highly absorbable orally making it a perfect Vitamin to supplement. D3 deficiencies are linked to reduced immunity, cognitive decline and S.A.D (Seasonal Affective Disorder).
Zinc: An essential trace mineral, Zinc is necessary for healthy cellular function. Long known for its immune benefits Zinc has been supplemented for decades for its immune benefits. However, only until recently did we know the effects of combining Zinc with Picolinic Acid for absorption. Zinc Picolinate is the most absorbable form of Zinc which is what we use in any of our formulas containing Zinc.
Garlic Extract: A superfood, Garlic in and of itself is a powerhouse cold and flu fighter. Studies have shown that Garlic alone can stimulate immune cell growth resulting in not only higher defense to the common cold but reduced time for recovery.
Olive Leaf Extract: OLE has been used in the Mediterranean for thousands of years for its many health benefits. Along with its use for osteoarthritis and cardiovascular disease, it also happens to be great at supporting immunity.
Astragalus: A powerful herb used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine, Astragalus has been shown in studies to activate immune function. People use long used this at the onset of a cold or flu and report a significant decrease in length of illness.
