Celestial Seasonings Antioxidant Max Green Tea

Increase your intake of flavonoids and antioxidants to help protect your body against free radicals. These can destroy good cells in your body so it's important to boost them through exercise and diet. You can also get them from drinking certain teas like Celestial Seasonings new line of Antioxidant Max Green Teas. Made with super fruits from around the world, each serving has 35 percent more flavonoid antioxidants than other flavored green teas and provides 20 percent of your recommended daily value of Vitamin C.

SinuSense Water Pulsator by Water Pik

To prevent and treat cold and flu symptoms, try a daily sinus cleanse to wash your nose of contaminants and reduce congestion. Water Pik has a new line of products including the SinuSense Water Pulsator that is battery powered as well as three non-battery powered options like the popular netti pot.

Oscillococcinum from Boiron

When flu-like symptoms do arise, it's important to take quick action. Look for options like Oscillococcinum that actually treat your symptoms instead of masking them. Also known as Oscillo, this homeopathic medicine doesn't leave you feeling drowsy and can nip symptoms in the bud before they get worse.
