With Ceralyte covering your hydration and proper electrolyte balance, your body still needs reinforcements to help kill virus. The vitamins and minerals in fresh foods can help immensely.
Vitamin C in citrus fruits can help you get back on your feet quickly. Raw honey helps coat your throat and has shown to have some anti-microbial properties (it has been a burn salve for thousands of years), and it mixes great with Ceralyte 70 Lemon and some ginger tea, which has been shown to help your body fight the common cold and flu viruses.
Just like pushing fluids, your body needs nutrition to continue to fight the virus and get you back on your feet quickly. Make sure you are eating! The fresher and les processed the foods, the quicker it will help you get back on your feet.
If you catch a stomach flu bug, and the uncomfortable diarrhea that comes with it, your diet is even more important. Stick with bland starchy foods like bananas, quick oats or plain rice. Your hydration is going to be even more important if you have diarrhea since your body will be rapidly expelling fluids. Ceralyte 70, or Ceralyte 50 if you child is sick, are designed to replace what you have lost, which is critical when you have a case of the bubble gut.
Finally, stay away from spicy and fried foods. These foods will upset your stomach and make the process more painful. Your body needs simple and easy to digest, not hot and spicy.
No one likes getting sick. Even the kid who gets to stay home from school is still miserable when the fever, aches and sore throat hit. Staying hydrated is one of the best things you can do to get better quicker. This flu season, in addition to the vapor rub and vitamin C tabs, consider adding Ceralyte 70 for you and Ceralyte 50 for your kids to keep you hydrated and giving your body the optimal hydration and electrolyte balance to fight your dreaded annual flu bug.
