HOW TO BEAT A COLD + BOOST IMMUNITY

HOW TO BEAT A COLD + BOOST IMMUNITY

Nobody has time to get sick.

After years of practice, I have tried and true methods to nip a potential cold in the bud.  The trick is to catch the illness before it blooms into a full fledged snot fest. The moment I feel the signs- body ache, sniffle, scratchy throat- I have a variety of potions that I start swigging, spraying and shooting up my nasal passages.

1. Barlean’s Olive Leaf Complex Throat Spray
