cold and flu remedies with BIBO

cold and flu remedies with BIBO

Keep colds and flu at bay with a BIBO.

It’s that time of the year again – cold and flu season is here.

But with good hydration and nutrition you can help prevent winter colds and flu.

When the temperature dives you should be drinking plenty of water, herbal teas and nourishing soups. Doctors say staying hydrated can help to stave off infections.

Water constantly flushes harmful toxins out through the lymph system.

And drinking hot black or green tea with lemon and honey is also a great way to keep germs at bay.

When you breathe in steam from hot drinks it stimulates the cilia – the hair follicles in the nose – to move out germs more efficiently. Lemon thins mucus, and honey is antibacterial – a perfect combination.

If you catch the sniffles in China, you are likely to be served ginger tea. Chinese herbalists have been prescribing this remedy for centuries. They claim ginger tea can miraculously cure colds, relieve headaches, combat nausea, improve circulation and fight certain viruses.

Not a tea drinker? Then any warm liquid – including chicken soup – can help relieve cold and flu symptoms. Heated drinks help loosen congestion and stimulate the flow of mucus, as well as keep you hydrated.

And researchers have recently discovered what grandmothers have suspected all along – that the ingredients in chicken soup (including the chicken stock, carrot, onion, and celery) might actually have a medicinal effect on the body’s immune system. Chicken soup was found to ease the inflammation caused by cold viruses.

But whatever you choose – tea, coffee, hot chocolate, soup or noodles – it tastes so much better with filtered, purified boiling water on tap.

A BIBO Water Bar delivers instant purified chilled and boiling water at the touch of a button.

There’s no waiting for that noisy kettle to boil. With BIBO you can make piping hot drinks and soups at any time – night or day.

So why not beat the winter blues this season with a BIBO.

City2Surf fun run can be thirsty work: hydration is key

City2Surf fun run can be thirsty work: hydration is key

Sunday Herald City2Surf 2016

The countdown is on to the world famous City2Surf – and thousands of professional athletes and weekend warriors are now in training for the world’s largest fun run. This year marks the 47th running of the event – with more than 60,000 expected to line up next Sunday, August 13.

The City2Surf from the Sydney CBD to Bondi has become one of the most loved and largest community events in the world.

It’s now widely recognised as a ‘bucket-list’ item for serious runners and adventure lovers globally. But don’t be fooled – the 14km course can be gruelling – especially in the heat. You must ensure you have sufficiently trained for the event or have allowed enough lead up time to prepare for the event and organisers warn that heat stress and exhaustion are common when competing on a hot day. They advise all entrants to be well hydrated before and during the race.

Dehydration can cause muscle cramps – often your body’s way of telling you need more water. Your body loses fluids when you work or exercise in the heat, and that can make you more likely to cramp. This may be partly because your muscles need water, but it’s also because you sweat out important minerals called electrolytes – sodium, potassium, and calcium – that help the cells in your muscles work the way they should.

What better way to stay hydrated than with a BIBO Water Bar? With a BIBO Water Bar you can fill your sports bottle with an endless supply of chilled filtered water. This cool, compact benchtop dispenser filters and purifies your tap water providing pristine chilled and boiling water at the touch of a button. BIBO uses the latest technology in multistage carbon filtration to remove tastes, odours, heavy metals, chlorine, microorganisms, and other nasties from tap water leaving the good minerals behind. It’s unique ultraviolet lamp system ensures water stays pure and fresh all the way to your sports bottle.

You can have peace of mind that the water you’re drinking is crystal clear and healthy – the perfect combination for a gruelling half-marathon! And just think of the money you’ll save on high-priced plastic bottled water, while helping to save the environment from plastic pollution.

Learn more about the City2Surf at www.city2surf.com.au – entries close soon so get involved, have fun and raise funds for a great cause!
