Build a strong immune system in advance of this cold and flu season by following the four pillars.
Homeopathic Specialist & Associate Medical Director, P3 Health
Amidst the face of the upcoming cold and flu season, strengthening the immune system is on many Canadians’ minds. Fortunately, it’s within our power as it all comes down to four key pillars: enrichment, exercising, de-stressing, and getting enough high-quality sleep. The more you can do in each pillar, the stronger your immune system can be.
While in general our immune system functions well at defending us from pathogens such as viruses and bacteria, sometimes it needs our help. Perhaps the most interesting pillar is enrichment. We can enhance our immune system’s ability to do its job by ensuring adequate daily consumption of nutritious foods, as well as certain natural health products, probiotics, vitamins, and minerals, which may support immune health.
Cold and flu season support
COLD-FX® Daily Support is a natural health product proven by science. COLD-FX® helps to reduce the chance of catching cold and flu. It’s a clinically-proven formula that can be taken throughout cold and flu season.
COLD-FX® Daily Support, COLD-FX® Extra Strength, and COLD-FX® Chewable tablets all help to reduce the frequency, severity, and duration of cold and flu symptoms by boosting the immune system.

COLD-FX® Daily Support is available in capsules and chewable tablets, making it an easy addition to your daily cold and flu season routine.
Not all ginseng is the same
COLD-FX® Daily Support is not the same as other ginseng products on the market. According to Bryce Wylde, a homeopathic specialist and Associate Medical Director of P3 Health, the efficacy lies in the details. “Studies have found that the two main types, Asian or Korean ginseng and North American ginseng, have different benefits,” he explains. “The science for cold and flu mitigation is in favour of CVT-E002® [the medicinal ingredient in COLD-FX® Daily Support], a proprietary, naturally-sourced extract from the root of North American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius), because the efficacy has been demonstrated in six clinical studies. In addition, the consistency and quality of every batch of COLD-FX® is ensured using a proprietary technology called ChemBioPrint® (Chemical and Biological Finger Printing).
“I’ve been using and recommending COLD-FX® for over 15 years,” says Wylde. “When it comes to natural health products, I follow the science — and COLD-FX® is steeped in science.”
