Echinacea and Goldenseal have been known to provide a combination of immune enhancing and cold fighting nutrients.
Echinacea is a favorite herbal supplement during the cold season because of it ability to help the stimulation and growth of key immune system cells that help to increase the body's defenses.
Goldenseal has been used by Native Americans for hundreds of years to help relieve respiratory discomfort, and according to many authorities, it too possesses immune stimulating activity.
It has been know for years, that our body's reserves of Vitamin C can fluctuate according to how much is needed to support the immune system, scavenge free radicals, normalize cholesterol and sugar metabolism and repair wounds. Thus, in an optimal state of health and lack of stress an individual's bodily requirement for Vitamin C could be in balance with his dietary and supplementary intake. However, if this person suffered from hay fever and was exposed to rag weed, or if he or she came down with a nasty cold, his/her immune system would require many times more Vitamin C in order to restore his/her good health. In other words, when under severe stress, the body can literally use up Vitamin C, which at other times it wouldn't need.
While it is clear that there can be no exact rule about how much Vitamin C to take for your particular transitory state of health, the Nobel prize winning Dr. Linus Pauling & others give rough guidelines in advising the intake of anywhere between 1 and 5 grams (g) per day. But really the best way to know how much Vitamin C you need is change the dose based on how your body responds to various stressors, demands and illnesses.
The recognized dietary antioxidants are vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, and carotenoids. However, recent studies have demonstrated that flavonoids found in fruits and vegetables may also act as antioxidants.
