i am awash and faltering with the most prolific flu....
really, there are very few times that i have felt so utterly depleted and bad, as i do with this flu. moving about at all is an accomplishment. though i know i should be still and resting, i still have obligations to which to attend....
so i made a supreme effort to get myself to the nearest natural market and stock up on some remedies...lemons and honey for sore throat....zinc lozenges...echinacea syrup...homeopathy tablets...
but the most amazing thing that i found is called Emergen-C, a fizzy drink mix made with water, that has 1000 mg vitamin C per packet.
the best thing ever! i literally am drenching myself in vitamin C. and i can feel it -- really -- re-inforcing and restoring my immune system and health. the fizzy drink gives such relief to my aching throat and dehydrated body. my digestive system is very delicate, so i would be unable to take regular vitamin capsules, but drinking this throughout the day keeps my body flush with the liquids, electrolytes and vitamins i need.
Super Orange Emergen-C fizzes in water to furnish 1,000 mg of Vitamin C with 32 different mineral complexes plus B Vitamins. Sweetened with Fructose for Quick Energy with Staying Power.
i'm so pleased to have found this. they also offer vitamin drink mixes for immune system, heart health and multi-vitamin. i think our bodies absorb vitamins much more readily this way, rather than trying digest a pill or capsule. digestion begins in the mouth, with the taste buds and saliva...swallowing pills skips all this.
they also have a variety of flavors...super orange, cranberry, raspberry, tropical, lemon-lime, tangerine and lite.
mmm...yummy and soothing, to my throat and delicate tummy.
a very good thing.
