Airborne?

http://www.airbornehealth.com/

A friend of mine told me about this stuff that supposedly works wonders if you're at that "feeling like crap and just about to get sick" stage. I started to feel like crap at work yesterday and by the time I was on my way home I decided to stop at Walgreen's. Sure enough, there was only one box of the lemon lime stuff left. It sort of tastes like flat Sprite, and when I woke up this morning I felt slightly better. In fact, after three glasses spread out throughout the day, I feel pretty decent right about now (if not a bit tired, but that's just from being home and bored all day).

Has anyone else tried this? If so, how has it worked out for you?

One of the teachers I work with swears by it. He is very rarely sick.

And I think I'm going to get some.

I used to take Airborne but then a friend of mine told me about this herbal medicine "Yin Chao" (it comes in liquid form or tablets... I like the liquid-you just put drops od it in juice or water) that you can get at places like Wild Oats. It works much better for me than Airborne, but you do have to take it when you are first feeling icky. Makes you go from to

We use it all the time. I think the Orange flavor is much better than the lemon lime.

We also use the stuff called Emergen-C.

With kids attending illness factories (schools), we are faced with new colds all the time.

Airborne is really getting popular - and can be found at Costco or Walmart.

Well, I felt good enough to go to the gym today.

I actually had a good work out too. Hooray for Airborne!

Unfortunately, it didn't work for me. My boss swears by it and got me to take some as I was starting to get sick. They say as long as you take it within 48 hours of "feeling like crap" it should work. But, it didn't for me.

Still, you get all the good vitamins to ward off a cold - Vitamin C, Zinc, Vitamin A, etc.

Well, there's no clinical evidence that Airborne works. It is a cocktail of herbs and vitamins. Realy, to use it right, and for it to work properly, you should take it in the first 24 hours of the onset of symtoms. Or if you want to use it as prophylaxis (preventative) use it while you are in a confined space for extended periods of time, like a plane ride. There is also a product by the name of coldsnap that a lot of my patients feel works for them. It goes by the same principles.

If you want to use something that is clinicaly proven to work you should use zinc.

My wife (who is a teacher) takes it like candy.

She's getting to the stage of a certain Greek man and his windex.

I worked out today and feel pretty close to 100% but my throat is a bit sore. I think for safety precautions I'll have one glass before bed tonight.

Other than that I give it a .
