Oscillococcinum was a winner in the immunity category. “This is one of the few products that can stop the flu virus in its tracks,” says the article. “Keep it on hand during cold and flu season.” Look for Oscillo in the November 2011 issue of Better Nutrition.
Oscillococcinum works best when taken at the first sign of flu-like symptoms, such as fatigue, headache, body aches, chills and fever. Oscillo has no side effects, and has been shown in clinical studies to help reduce both the duration and the severity of flu-like symptoms. It is safe for everyone 2 years and up. Oscillo’s sweet-tasting pellets dissolve quickly under the tongue and are taken without water. Each dose is packaged individually in a compact and portable plastic tube, making it convenient and easy to keep in a purse, gym bag or desk. Sold as an over-the-counter medicine, it can be picked up without a prescription at Rite Aid, Walgreens, Target, CVS and other fine pharmacies and natural retailers nationwide. Use Boiron’s store finder to find a retailer near you. For more information on Oscillo, visit www.oscillo.com or check us out on Facebook and Twitter.
