The cold temperature is setting in throughout Mauritius. Our Meteorological Services have pointed out the winter season will last up to October this year. Its director, R. Mungra stated in a press conference that on some occasions, it is most likely that minimum temperature may drop to near 12 degrees Celsius especially during July and August and occasionally in September and October.
The best way of avoiding flu and other winter-related diseases, is to strengthen our immunity system by taking vitamin C.
However, since that vitamin C is not synthesized by the human body, it is thus essential to take it on a daily basis. For example, Vitamin C Effervescent Tabs manufactured by HealthAid, whose laboratories are located in the United Kingdom.
HealthAid vitamin C is available in 1000 mg effervescent tablets. They dissolve easily in a glass of water to provide a refreshing, fruit flavoured drink.
Vitamin C acts by increasing the production of white blood cells which help fight infections and also impacts positively on the level of interferons. Scientific research has shown that a cell infected by a virus, will release interferons that will cause the cells nearby to heighten their anti-viral defense.
