Q.

SWINE FLU

Good day,

Is there perhaps an Immune Booster I can give to my 4 month old son which will boost his immune system against colds &  flu' s?

Thanking you,
Charlene

None of the usual immune boosters can be safely recommended for your 4 month old baby. The best would be to give him a good probiotic to boost his immune system such as Reuteri Infant drops. Give him a 1ml dose daily for 10 days per month. You will not need to use this probiotic once the summer is here and the Swine flu epidemic is winding down.
