Natural Herbal Remedy for Cold and Flu

Every year, most people catch a couple of colds or even the flu. They are inevitable most of the time and there really aren’t any medications to prevent or help cure your cold or flu. According to the Nutrition Business Journal, $1.5 billion dollars were spent on cold and flu supplements and the market is growing at twice the rate than over-the-counter remedies are.

Echinacea Natural Herbal Remedy for Cold and Flu

Also known as Echinacea purpurea, Echinacea is widely promoted for its ability to boost your immune system and help you to fight colds and the flu.

Snoring: Causes, Symptoms and Treatments

The National Sleep Foundation reports that about 90 million American adults suffer from a snoring disorder. 37 million of those adults snore regularly. Men who are overweight are commonly afflicted by snoring disorders, but snoring can affect non-overweight males and females as well.

Flaxseed Oil as Anti-Wrinkle Agent?

A normal part of aging is developing wrinkled skin. Not everyone develops it as quickly and other factors play a role in how quickly and how much your skin wrinkles. Over-the-counter products claim to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, though very little proof exists to back up these claims. The Mayo Clinic indicates that some factors that cause wrinkles are uncontrollable.

In the cosmetic industry, flaxseed oil is considered to be able to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It may help your skin to look younger, according to Dr. Benabio, owner of the Dermatology Blog. Flaxseed oil is high in essential fatty acids, which are beneficial for healthy skin appearance.
