Guess it will come and get me now,
just for saying this,
but tyrnimarja still seems to work for me.

No head colds nor flues this autumn.
(Yet.)

Best wishes of speedy recovery, man!

Thanks and yes... sea buckthorn - mega does of vitamin c.

Sea buckthorn is an herb. The leaves, flowers, and fruits are used to make medicine.

Sea buckthorn leaves and flowers are used for treating arthritis, gastrointestinal ulcers, gout, and skin rashes caused by infectious diseases such as measles. A tea containing sea buckthorn leaves is used as a source of vitamins, antioxidants, protein building blocks (amino acids), fatty acids and minerals; for improving blood pressure and lowering cholesterol; preventing and controlling blood vessel diseases; and boosting immunity.

Sea buckthorn berries are used for preventing infections, improving sight, and slowing the aging process.

The seed or berry oil is used as an expectorant for loosening phlegm; for treating asthma, heart disorders including chest pain (angina) and high cholesterol; for preventing blood vessel disease; and as an antioxidant. Sea buckthorn oil is also used for slowing the decline of thinking skills with age; reducing illness due to cancer, as well as limiting the toxicity of chemical cancer treatment (chemotherapy); balancing the immune system; treating stomach and intestinal diseases including ulcers and reflux esophagitis (GERD); treating night blindness and dry eye; and as a supplemental source of vitamins C, A, and E, beta-carotene, minerals, amino acids, and fatty acids.

Some people apply sea buckthorn berries, berry concentrate, and berry or seed oil directly to the skin for preventing sunburn; for treating radiation damage from x-rays and sunburns; for healing wounds including bedsores, burns, and cuts; for acne, dermatitis, dry skin, eczema, skin ulcers, and skin color changes after giving birth; and for protecting mucus membranes.

In foods, sea buckthorn berries are used to make jellies, juices, purees, and sauces.

In manufacturing, sea buckthorn is used in cosmetics and anti-aging products.

How does it work?

Sea buckthorn contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, and other active ingredients. It might have some activity against stomach and intestinal ulcers, and heartburn symptoms. http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplement...0buckthorn

It has some crazy good health benefits - I did not know it was an herb puffpuffpass.gif Just considered it somewhere between a fruit and a berry.

I made some warm blackcurrant juice with honey. That really helped me get over this cold.

Quote:Per 100 g serving providing 63 calories (table), the fruit has high vitamin C content (218% of the Daily Value, DV, per 100 g) and good levels of iron and manganese (10-20% DV, table).


Phytochemicals in the fruit and seeds, such as polyphenols, have been demonstrated, with ongoing laboratory studies assessing their potential to inhibit inflammation mechanisms of heart disease, cancer, microbial infections or neurological disorders like Alzheimer's disease.[45][46]

Major anthocyanins in blackcurrant pomace are delphinidin-3-O-glucoside, delphinidin-3-O-rutinoside, cyanidin-3-O-glucoside, and cyanidin-3-O-rutinoside[47] which are retained in the juice concentrate among other yet unidentified polyphenols.[48][49]

Blackcurrant seed oil is rich in nutrients, especially vitamin E and unsaturated fatty acids, including alpha-linolenic acid and gamma-linolenic acid.

"Have you googled nose douche?"

Is there a comma missing, or is that a simple sentence?
If you're going to nose douche, you might as well go for a bit of ear-candling.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

Make a nasal wash of sea salt and water. After you open up with the spray, rinse it out with the wash using a bulb syringe. Keep that backed up mucous washed out to heal faster and prevent infection.


Nose douche...

That cracked me up.

i had a dream that there was a turkey, which had gone bad because it was left out of the fridge.
in the dream i was having to make a quick getaway so i wrote 'bad' in marker on the package and tossed it back in the freezer before i left.

i guess i wrote it so anyone who came across it would try n cook it.
lol
