Summer Sniffles Got You Down? Protect Your Family’s Immunity Year Round
Just as you thought allergy season was over, BOOM, comes a case of the summer sniffles, MAJOR BUMMER (even more major if you’re about to go on vacation, which always seems to be how it happens, right?). And because everyone else is having fun in the sun while you’re stuck with a runny or stuffy nose, sore throat or even fever, summer colds have been researched to be even more isolating than their winter counterparts, because you know you’re missing out.
Wondering why colds are still around when it's warm out? It turns out summer colds are typically related to what’s called a non-polio enterovirus, while winter colds are more likely connected to rhinovirus. With enterovirus, gastrointestinal symptoms including nausea or vomiting aren’t uncommon and some even develop skin rashes or mouth blisters. Worst of all? Infants and children are more susceptible than adults because their immune systems are still developing, and accordingly, their symptoms might be worse than yours.
So, keeping up your guard year round is the proactive approach to warding off germs, even when you're outdoors more than in. Maintaining a routine of immune support including Vitamin C, Magnesium and Zinc, the super supplement trifecta found in Vitaminis can help ensure your kiddos are set up for their best summer ever with less sniffles and more smiles.
