Winter can be a challenging time. The colder temperatures and fewer hours of daylight can significantly impact a person's mood and immune system. And let's face it, the last thing we need during an ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is a sluggish mood and poor health.

Our wellness consultants are frequently asked the best tips for boosting immune health and fighting off those dreaded cold and flu viruses. While there isn't just one way to help improve your family's immune health, there are a few supplements, herbal ingredients, and healthy habits that can help.

The best part is that you will find all these ingredients in Sportron's range of supplements and wellness products.

One of our highly recommended immune-defence products is Sportron's Infagard. Infagard contains a powerful combination of herbal ingredients that are great for treating any signs or symptoms of a cold or flu - a sore or itchy throat, coughing, sneezing, congestion, or an upset stomach. This powerful herbal fighter comes in a handy 30 ml bottle, and all you need is at least 15 - 20 drops daily.

Please note: For children we would highly recommend Respitron Syrup and Kidgarde Viral Plus. Respitron doesn't contain any artificial colourants; the orange colour comes from the ingredient betacarotene, it has a pleasant honey taste and is a powerful antioxidant that the body converts into vitamin A. Kidgarde Viral Plus is an anti-oxidant rich liquid formula blend of Echinacea, Green Tea, and Elderberry Extract combined with vitamins that provide daily immune support to prevent colds and flu.

Below we've listed five of the all-natural ingredients you will find in Infagard:


Also referred to as the "purple coneflower," echinacea contains anti-inflammatory, antioxidants, and antiviral properties. It is a prevalent herb to use when battling flu symptoms.


Peppermint is known for its fresh and pleasant minty taste. It is an easy and versatile herb to add to your diet. Peppermint has antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties and acts as a muscle relaxant and pain reliever that can help with headaches and digestive problems.


Dried daisy-like flowers called chamomile flowers are used to make chamomile tea. Many studies suggest that chamomile is best known for helping people relax, reduce anxiety, and induce sleep.

Lemon Verbena

Best known to help muscle spasms, indigestion, reduce fever, and increase appetite. The lemon verbena plant has a distinct lemony scent, which intensifies when you touch or crush the leaves.


Goldenseal can be taken as a supplement or used as an ointment to heal skin wounds. This herb is a popular aid for bladder and digestive problems, liver conditions, and infections of the mucous membranes.

If you already use, love, and trust Sportron's Infagard, then we recommend you try Sportron's other immune boosters.

Remember, stress directly impacts the immune system and weakens your system's forces putting you at risk of sickness and distress. So, don't neglect your mental health this time of year. Speak to a professional if you feel you need support.
