Why?

When you are sick, you need to keep hydrated and nourish your body.  Vitamins, minerals and enzymes are essential to helping your body function and keep healthy.  However, as many of us can relate, your food and fluid intake decreases when you are sick. You may not have much of an appetite or may have trouble keeping food down. Also, having a fever decreases the functions of enzymes, thus compromising your metabolic system. This is one of the reasons why it's recommended to have simple foods when you are sick, like soup or crackers. Cold pressed juices are an excellent option because not only are they gentle on the digestive system, they also flood your body with essential nutrients and enzymes to help you get better.

It's important to note, vitamins do not cure colds. The common cold is caused by a virus. Vitamins do not treat the virus. Instead, they ensure your body maintains functions and prevent more serious conditions caused by vitamin deficiency.

  • Loss of appetite
  • Low on energy
