Flu Info

Influenza, commonly known as "the flu", is a highly infectious disease caused by a family of influenza viruses. It affects mainly the throat, lungs and nose. The most common symptoms are chills, sore throat, fever, runny nose, muscle pains, headaches, coughing, fatigue and general body discomfort.

In most cases of the flu, recovery takes up to 2 weeks. Some people are at high risk for developing severe flu-related complications (like bacterial pneumonia). These people include the elderly (65 or older) and people with pre-existing medical conditions (asthma, lung diseases, diabetes) and those with compromised immune systems.

Although it is often confused with other influenza-like illnesses (like the common cold,) influenza is a more severe disease caused by a completely different virus. Influenza may produce nausea and vomiting, particularly in children, but these symptoms are more common in the unrelated gastroenteritis, which is sometimes inaccurately referred to as "stomach flu" or "24-hour flu".

There some natural health remedies that may help alleviate the symptoms of the flu. It is important to see your health care practitioner, if you believe you are infected with the influenza virus.

Product Reviews

  • Used for years and a very good product

    I've used this product for many years. The family don't take it as regularly as me (every 3rd or 4th day myself) but they all know if they feel a tickle of the throat coming on, or other signs of fever or bugs going around then we all immediately start taking it daily. Even if you've already have caught a cold, I think this helps minimize the adverse impact. By and large I (we) don't get many of the bugs going around, but the family is also eating nutritional food (and jucing) - you can't solve everything with a pill of course. Bottom line - there's always a bottle open and in use, and an unopened bottle ready to go. The kids have moved out, but come home and ...borrow some now and then.... It's like antiseptic cream, sticking plasters, immunofort is a thing you (we) just have available if needed.



  • No result

    Had high hopes for this medication to treat my Hayfever. Sadly no improvement at all after 6 weeks



  • Reliable and cheap!

    Have used these a lot and really notice the difference when I'm not taking them. And so worth it for such a great price :)
