Cold Weather Causes Colds, Right?

Myth or fact? Can you really catch a cold by running around without a hat in frigid temps?

Myth. It’s not cold weather that makes you sick. It’s close quarters and less air circulation. Chilly weather drives people indoors, and rubbing elbows with friends and neighbors allows viruses to spread easily. Research shows that getting cold or wet or not wearing a hat has no effect on whether you wind up sniffling and sneezing. What does? Washing your hands and building up your immune system!

RealAge Benefit: Protecting your immune system can make your RealAge as much as 6 years younger.

SHAKLEE SOLUTIONS: there are SO many things you can do to help build your immune system! (Vita Lea, Vita C, and NutriFeron are your best bet!)

Take Vita Lea (Shaklee’s amazing multivitamin) , it’s the most comprehensive and effective vitamin in the world! Shaklee’s Vitamin C products are amazing, too! There’s Sustained Realease Vita C (Item #20095, which is patented and gives you the equivalent Vitamin C of eating 7 oranges per hour for 9 hours straight!) and also Chewable Vita C (item#20094). And of course – NutriFeron (#20960), Shaklee’s patented immune system builder!!

Don’t shun social events just because you’re worried about bacteria or viruses. As a matter of fact, hanging out with friends and family reduces stress — and stress is a big factor in diminishing immune system function. Just remember to wash your hands before preparing food and eating, after coughing or sneezing, after shaking hands or being in public places, and after using the bathroom (yes, even at home).

When you do sneeze or cough, cover your mouth with the crook of your arm, not your hands, to avoid spreading germs to others. These small steps will go a long way toward keeping you, your friends, and your family free of colds and flu.
