To built up your Immune system against cold & flu.
My son is suffering from cold, flu, sore throat about every second week. After a antibotic course he is ok for a week or two then it starts all over again. He is 33 years old. He is taking daily vitamins. Can you please suggest something to built up his immune system?

Worried, who says hat there is anything wrong with his immune system. It’s middle of winter and being sick once a month is almost to be expected. If he is more sick than average, the best would be to find out why and then treat the cause (e.g. diabetes, thyroid problems, anaemia, etc.).
