Wellington, May 15: A study by the University of Auckland showed on Friday that eating flavonoids, found in green tea, apple, blueberries, cocoa, red wine and onions can significantly reduce the risk of catching colds and coughs.
The study showed adults could be 33 percent more protected against the common cold, or upper respiratory tract infections, if they eat flavonoids or take flavonoid supplements, compared with those who don’t.
People who eat flavonoids also took fewer sick days off work, nutrition researcher Andrea Braakhuis said in a statement.
