Common COLD issues

Have you had a cold lately? 

Have you taken Echinacea?  

How was that going for you?

On July 28, 2005, The New England Journal of Medicine published the results of a  study of Echinacea for the prevention and treatment of the common cold that was funded by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM).1 The research was conducted by Dr. Ronald Turner, of the University of Virginia School of Medicine, Dr. Rudolf Bauer, Karl-Franzens Universitaet, Graz, Austria, and collaborators at Clemson University in South Carolina.

In this study, researchers found that none of the three [Echinacea] preparations … had significant effects on whether volunteers became infected with the cold virus or on the severity or duration of symptoms among those who developed colds.

OK.. let’s fast forward to  2011 and Juice Plus.  “Over 500 healthcare professionals with direct patient contact – a population considered to be at particular risk of exposure – were recruited for the study.

The  study  was published in the British Journal of Nutrition 2011. Study summary and findings:

Healthcare professionals who took Juice Plus+® over the cold winter months reported 20% fewer days with moderate to severe upper respiratory symptoms than those receiving placebo.

Next time you get a cold, think of how you could have reduced those symptoms.  Better yet, begin to take JUICE PLUS  now and have a better immune system,  you might avoid the cold all together!
