avoiding being sick with zinc and b12 - so far so good


icon: "brewing (a photo of a ceramic mug with sticks of cinnamon poking out and steam rising up)"

small random PSA: I take zinc and b12 every day, and I haven't gotten sick in over a year and a half, despite being around sick people often enough. I consider the two things highly related, and as the pills aren't too expensive, I shall continue to take them. I also drink lots of water and avoid sugar, especially if I know I have been exposed to something.

Plus one for the zinc, which is known to help protect and reduce effects of the common cold!

I did not know that about zinc, I'll have to try that.

My immune system tends to be weak because I was unwell as a teenager but because I've improved over the past couple of years I stopped taking vitamins. This year I've gone a little downhill though so thanks for the reminder, I might start taking something over the Winter!

In the past I've taken echinacea drops and garlic tablets, and haven't been sick. I know I've taken CoEnzyme containing B12 before. I'll go to my pharmacy and see what's available.
