What is a cold and why do we get sick?
The common cold is known as a viral disease. We can become infected by droplets (in the range of up to two meters), or by contact with infected hands, objects and so on. On colder days, we inhale cold and dry air, causing the mucous membranes in the airways to thicken and protect the respiratory tract. However, thickening of the mucous membrane prevents microbes from leaving the body, so they multiply in the body and cause infection.
Sore throat or itching, coughing and irritation, and runny nose are the most common symptoms. The cold may go away after a few days, or it may progress. In this case, we may also feel a headache, higher body temperature, malaise and nausea.
For strong immune system in the autumn and winter, we recommend consuming Immune Boost.
