Brief Answer:
try laktrum

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
There are three things I would recommend to improve immunity and decrease cold attacks.
1. Flu vaccine every year.
2. Zincovit drops 1 ml daily along with iron drops like fferis or hemsi 0.5 ml daily.
3. Laktrum one scoop daily in milk can help boost immunity.
This is lactoferrrin which has immunoglobulin to help in improving immunity.

Wishing your child good health

I have been exposed to the flu and didn t get a vaccination. Is it too late to get one? Would it help prevent me from getting the flu also? Nevermind. If I have to pay for a simple answer, I ll call the clinic for free. What a scam you all have going here.
