natural defenses against the cold virus.

Take green tea supplements. Green tea extracts contain powerful antioxidants
such as catechin EGCG and the amino acid 1-theanine. These antioxidants can help
defend your body against a viral infection. According to a scientific study published in
the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, only 42% of the subjects who took
green tea extract during the winter time had a cold or flue for no more than two days
in comparison to 64% of those who were give a placebo.

Minimize your sugar intake. If you crave sweets, consider satisfying your sugar
cravings with natural sweeteners such as honey or maple syrup. You could also eat
fruits to quench the demand for sugar. Research shows that a person's white blood
cell count (the same white blood cells used to combat the virus that causes the
common cold) is reduced by as much as 40% when he/she drinks two cans of soda.
Definitely avoid the soda vending machines when you have a cold.

Take extra vitamin D. Research studies have indicated that an increase in the cold
or flu during the winter time is inversely linked to the levels of vitamin D in our bodies.
In a small study conducted from a hospital in California, their research suggests that
subjects who took 2,000 IU of vitamin D on a daily basis for one year were better
able to defend themselves against the cold virus while those who did not take vitamin
D at all suffered the symptoms associated with this viral infection.

Avoid alcohol and get some sleep. Get lots of rest at night. Get between seven
and nine hours of sleep every night and avoid drinking too much alcohol. Indulging in
excessive alcohol can reduce your body's ability to create anti-viral antibodies by
two-thirds.

These tips will not necessary keep you from getting catching the cold virus, but armed
with this knowledge, you can be better equipped to know what to do to in case the
cold virus catches you.
