Why it Matters: “Traditional over-the-counter cold and flu remedies dry out our mucus membranes by constricting blood vessels and decreasing swelling. While this might make us feel better in the short term, it does nothing to help us fight the virus and may in fact weaken our mucus membrane’s defense.” - Chief Medical Officer Angela C. Hind, M.D.
