Protect yourself against Aussie flu

Have you heard of the Aussie flu? This outbreak has hit the UK as many readers will already know.

It’s a timely reminder that prevention is better than cure and looking after yourself and your family is so important.

Are you sure your bodies are getting the right nutrients?

How you can protect yourself against Aussie flu?

Babi Chana, Nutritionist and Biochemist for Wiley’s Finest, has explained why Omega-3 is the essential nutrient to help our immunue system.

“Omega-3 fatty acids help our immune system and fight infections such as colds and flu. They build healthy mucous membranes – the delicate skin that lines the airways and digestive systems, which act as a first line barrier, guarding against entry of germs into the body.”

“Omega-3 EPA produces ‘eicosanoids’ that produce beneficial effects in the regulation of inflammation, immunity and blood clotting.”

    I honestly can’t remember – had a couple of heavy cold/fluey-type bugs in the last 10 years but recovered pretty quickly so doubt they were the actual ‘flu. My immune system’s pretty good – can’t remember the last time I needed antibiotics, and I don’t get the flu vaccine either.

    I had it in December, don’t get me wrong, I was glad to get it out of the way before Christmas but I got a triple whammy of Flu, Sinusitis and Chest Infection. I had my flu jab and I think perhaps it could have been much worse if I hadn’t but it was horrible!

  48. Sarah Parker February 21, 2018 / 11:57 am

    I’m not sure – a few years ago
