There are a number of natural over-the-counter products that can protect you from colds and flu. The vitamins, minerals, and herbs they contain support your immune system and help your body fight off these infections. But they’re not likely to keep you healthy when you find yourself on an airplane sitting next to someone who’s coughing. Or when you’re exposed to airborne germs in other situations.
However, a new product, available now in drugstores, kills 99.9% of these infectious airborne germs. With this product, says a new study, you can now stay healthy when people around you are sick.
In the study, researchers from University Hospitals Case Medical Center found that this product prevents colds and the flu with a one-two punch. The product is Halo Oral Antiseptic.
The one-two punch in Halo comes from a glycerine/xanthan gum combination, along with cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC). The combination of glycerin and xanthan gum traps the germs and prevents them from entering your system. And the CPC is a broad-spectrum anti-infective agent, which kills the germs once the combination traps them.
The researchers conducting this study tested Halo against strains of H1N1 from the 2009 pandemic. They discovered that the combination effectively killed 99.9% of the virus.
So the researchers wanted to see if Halo could kill whooping cough, a powerful respiratory infection. The preliminary data from the study showed Halo kills all 11 clinical strains of whooping cough. But that’s not all this study showed.
The researchers said their data showed that taking just three sprays of Halo would kill any airborne germ you breathe in for six hours. And eating and drinking doesn’t hinder its effectiveness. The spray coats the back of your mouth and throat and provides your body with an antiseptic barrier that kills airborne germs.
You can’t escape airborne germs. They’re everywhere. And, frankly, limited exposure to them will help your body build up a defense against them. It’s when you have heavy exposure that you’re more likely to get sick. Heavy exposure occurs when you’re in crowded situations or when you’re traveling in a bus, train, or airplane. When you’re going into situations like this, you might want to consider taking Halo Oral Antiseptic. You can find it at most drugstores.

However, you need to know that Halo’s ability to fight infection is limited. Yes, it works for up to six hours once you’ve taken it. But it’s not a permanent solution. And it doesn’t effectively boost your immune system. On the drugstore shelf next to Halo, you’ll find supplements containing small amounts of nutrients that boost your immune system. These may sound good, but they rarely offer real protection. And you won’t find effective year-round immune support in over-the-counter drugs.
The best formula I’ve found to provide this type of protection is MycoPhyto Complex. It’s a mushroom formula that is a powerful immune booster. It’s the one I use to keep me well year after year. It works. And it can help you fight off any germs that Halo fails to kill when you’re not using it.
