BEST NATURAL COLD-CHASING COMBO
Taking 300 mg. of Echinacea three times a day, plus 500 mg. to 1,000 mg. of vitamin C, reduces your risk of catching a cold 86%, reports the journal Lancet. For the most benefit, take a one-week “vacation” from Echinacea every eight weeks, experts advise.

Oprah Winfrey revealed a few of her annual Favorite Things on Good Morning America yesterday and they included everything from artisanal popcorn to empowering jewelry and her favorite foot massager. Adam Glassman, creative director of O, The Oprah Magazine, joined Tory Johnson yesterday for her weekly Deals and Steals segment to share a first look at the gifts Winfrey has on her list this year. On the top of her Favorite Things is the truMedic Foot Massager, usually priced at $199 but available through Deals and Steals for $99.50 for a limited time. When talking about the gift, Oprah said: “When I tried this foot massager, I swear fireworks lit the sky, waves pounded against the shore, and a choir of angels sang. This is some powerful pampering.” She called the LA Relaxed jumpsuit a “onesie for grownups” and it's also top of her list this year. With Oprah jetting all over the world, she cites it as a must for traveling: “This jumpsuit is a pleasure to wear on a long trip because you can curl up in it and still look fresh when you get where you're going. That stripe down the leg sure does slenderize.” Normally priced at $168, it's down to $84 through GMA's deal.
Here are other items on Oprah’s list:
Bindle Bottle
When you're on to go, much like the famed billionaire talk show host, you need to hydrate and multitask. This water bottle helps you do it all, with its ability to keep drinks hot or cold and its hidden compartment underneath to store keys, cards and any other small valuables. $39
Paravel fold-up bags
Frequent travelers know the struggle of buying too many goodies while on a trip and having a tough time fitting it all in your luggage. Oprah is looking out for you with these pouches that fold away neatly but pop up into a useful bag when you need them. $60
Burt's Bees Baby holiday jumpsuit
Imagine Oprah joining in your family holiday card dressed in this holiday one-piece. You can find sizes of the striped organic cotton onesie for the whole family to match. $10 to $45
La Chatelaine deluxe hand cream set
We can't all get to the South of France for the winter holidays, but this tin of 12 assorted hand creams will make you feel like you're there (and they'll keep you moisturized). $68
Casa Dragones Tequila
Oprah always loves her tequila, and she says Casa Dragones is her tequila of choice. She chose a minibottle of the brand's 100 percent pure blue agave tequila blanco offering, which is perfect for putting in stockings (or leaving out for Santa). $42
Chicago Metallic lasagna trio pans
Oprah is well aware that three is better than one. So it makes sense that she would recommend these lasagna pans that have three sections, for three different types of lasagna that will please the whole family. $30
Amazon Echo Spot
Alexa is getting another upgrade. A smaller, less-expensive version of the Amazon smart device featured on last year's list has made its way back into Oprah's heart. $130
Pudus boot socks
These Pudus socks have a cozy and warm interior that will keep your feet toasty in the winter months. $16 to $20 a pair
RapidX X5 car charger
This car charger has five charging ports for five times the power. Because Oprah knows that we shouldn't be fighting over who can charge their device on a holiday road trip. $25
Samsung QLED TV
Even though some of the list items are on the more affordable side, this Samsung would probably fit in perfectly in Oprah's luxe home. When it's on, the TV is a high-definition gadget to watch your favorite titles. When it's off, it's supposed to seamlessly blend into the color or pattern of the wall behind it. $1,500
