Let’s face it—we’re smack in the middle of cold and flu season. 

If you’re like us, working at an office nine to five, seven days a week, then you know just how hard it is to avoid catching the office plague. And it’s only a matter of time before your coworker Margaret just has to stop by your desk sick. 

Don’t fret, there are multiple ways to protect yourself from catching whatever seems to be going around this week. Here, 6 Amazon products that we like to keep on hand to stay healthy. 


1. Zhou Nutrition Elderberry Syrup

This organic syrup consisting of black elderberry, raw honey and apple cider vinegar is just the immune system boost your body needs during these cold winter months. 

$17 on Amazon


2. Sovereign Silver Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol

Think of it as a non-prescription internal bacteria killer. Consisting of solely silver (a natural element that can be found in whole grains, mushrooms and water) and purified water, the product is easy to take and tasteless (thank god). 

$12 on Amazon


3. Zicam Cold Remedy Nasal Swabs

Oh no, you just felt your first sniffle come on. Enter: these homeopathic nasal swabs that relieve cold symptoms and nasal congestion. 

$10 on Amazon


4. Pukka Three Ginger, Organic Herbal Tea

Nothing says “help me feel better” more than tea. And yes, the hot beverage (this one featuring galangal & turmeric) can also help keep the germs at bay.

$15 at Amazon


5. Wedderspoon Raw Premium Manuka Honey

Who knew raw honey could help prevent illness? The superfood is used for home remedies, as an energy booster or just a flavor enhancer on your favorite foods. 

$35 on Amazon


6. Touchland Power Mist Hydrating Hand Sanitizer

This hand sanny is easy to apply (a sprayer) and the scent is subtle enough that your neighbor won’t look at you funny when you douse yourself after they sneeze in the vicinity of your desk. 

$16 on Amazon
