Maybe it is being cooped up in offices, classrooms, buses and trains but the bugs just keep flying around at this time of year.
A few years ago, in this very month of November, I started a part time job in Newcastle city centre, which necessitated journeys on the Metro system alongside the sneezing, coughing & snuffling folks in the area.
A few weeks later I went down with a stinking cold and actually had to go home from work, I was that ill. Shortly after that I read about a supplement called Beta Glucan - 1,3/1,6-D, which I promptly started taking.
I can honestly say I never had another bad cold in the year or so I travelled on the Metro or after that. I still take it every winter and now stop sniffles before they get started by doubling my dose temporarily.
I tell a lot of people about Beta Glucan because it works at building your immune system, so it can fight off the bugs we come into contact with every day!
Wishing you a healthy winter!
