Would you please explain which is better when talking about medicinal problems?

Eg. in the sentence:

Vitamin C helps with flu symptoms.

or

Vitamin C helps against flu symptoms.

Our teacher asked us to translate a similar sentence (Vitamin C helps against/with the following problems - my translation) and I tried to google both terms but was not able to tell the difference.

Thank you.

    Thank you for the suggestion. However, I need to know which preposition is better when used without the verb "cure" and if there is a difference.

"with" is definitely the most common preposition (Google search). However, if you use "against" you won't be wrong either (Google search).
