From Immunity-Boosting Shooters to Cold-Combating Teas

 - Dec 12, 2017
Natural flu remedies can be used to fight milder symptoms of the flu or the common cold, including coughs, sore throats and sinus congestion. Brands are increasingly offering natural alternatives to consumers looking for healthier remedies than standard drugstore options.

One such example is the Vive Organic wellness shot that contains a potent mix of fruits, vegetables and spices. The small amount of liquid is to be downed in one go rather than sipped on, and helps to boost the immune system of those who consume it.

Bigger brands are now jumping onto the alternative medicine trend as well, with one example being Starbucks' new Medicine Ball beverage. The beverage contains hot water, hot lemonade, tea and honey – offering antibacterial and soothing properties for under-the-weather customers.
