Health Tip: Red- and orange-colored fruits and vegetables are particularly good for protecting against or fighting off colds or flu, and are full of powerful antioxidants that are known to protect against many more serious illnesses. This refreshing, fruity drink also contains echinacea, which helps to relieve the symptoms of cold and flu. If you are suffering from a cold or flu or can sense its arrival, echinacea can be taken in about 1 tsp servings repeatedly throughout the day. Check the recommended dosage on the manufacturer’s package before using, however.
