Now that the holiday season is over, cold and flu season starts to kick in. What a better way to care for your well-being, family, and loved ones are to prepare a care package. Have it always ready in your kitchen cabinet, just in case someone gets sick. I have partnered with Kroger to bring you all the essentials you need to help you shorten those sick days and enjoy the rest of the winter. Here are the 5 essentials to make the Ultimate Get-well-Package or care package.
1. Abreva® Pump Cold Sore and Fever Blister Treatment
You could heal your cold sore in 2.5 days*. Abreva is not for temporary symptom relief, but healing. It delivers the best results when used at the first sign of a cold sore (e.g. the tingle that you feel on your lip). Abreva is the only FDA approved OTC medicine to shorten healing time and duration of pain, itching, burning, and tingling.
*When used at the first sign, median healing time was 4.1 days; 25% healed in 2.5 days.
2. Emergen-C Immune+® Super Orange Gummies
Emergen-C Immune+® supports your immune system with the key nutrients your body needs, such as Vitamin D and Zinc. Even more, every Emergen-C Immune+® formula is packed with Vitamin C.*
Emergen-C Immune+® is an excellent source of Vitamin C and Vitamin D and with Zinc to help you feel good as it naturally supports your immune system. It is gluten-free and vegetarian.
3. Lipton Soothe Your Tummy Tea
The Lipton Wellness range, made with carefully selected botanicals and blended with essential oils, helps make wellbeing a part of your everyday routine.
Soothe Your Tummy is an herbal infusion for those times your tummy feels less than its best.* Carefully selected botanicals like ginger and peppermint are blended with natural essential oils that make every cup delicious.
4. Robitussin® Maximum Strength Honey Cough & Chest Congestion DM:
New! Robitussin Honey has the real honey you want, the powerful cough relief you need. With Robitussin® you can fight your cough and help kick your symptoms to the curb. The liquid-strength of Robitussin® soothes on contact and provides cough relief for hours.
Gluten Free. No Artificial Colors. True Source Certified Honey.
(Remember, Theraflu Power Pods Daytime Severe Cold and Robitussin® Maximum Strength Honey Cough & Chest Congestion DM should not be used at the same time.)
5. Theraflu Power Pods Nighttime Severe Cold:
Don’t let the cold or flu get in your way. Theraflu Power Pods Daytime or Nighttime Severe Cold fits right in your routine. Compatible with most single-serve coffee makers, these fast-relieving pods work on even your most severe symptoms. Press. Sip. Relief.
Theraflu is a powerful relief without a prescription. It treats symptoms of cold and flu, such as minor headache and pains, headache, nasal and sinus congestion, cough due to minor throat and bronchial irritation, minor sore throat pain, and temporarily reduces fever.
