Avoiding getting a dose this winter

It can be tough to avoid a cold or virus during this season, but there are plenty of ways to tackle unwanted germs and bacteria.

During the cold and flu season, infection can spread on surfaces, so even if things look clean make every effort to disinfect your hands and surfaces to kill any bacteria. According to experts, 56 per cent of people don't always wash their hands after sneezing or blowing their nose, so take care when using door handles, stairways, toilets, taps, chairs, tables and phones in any public place.

It's important to regularly wash your hands with antibacterial soap, and you may even consider carrying a germ-busting antibacterial spray around with you over the next few months to keep hands clean.

When anyone in your home is feeling ill, help them get back to full strength by letting them rest as much as possible.

Dietitian Orla Walsh joined us in studio this morninh along with Dr. Michael Murray to chat about what supplements could help you.
