Does Airborne Really Work? Let’s Find Out
The entire world around me is sick. The crud is going around. My co host sits 2 feet away from me sniffling and coughing and touching everything. I AM IN HELL.

It depends on what you expect. Do you think that you will be able to fend off cold or flu with 100% success? If you do, you'll be disappointed. I've used "Airborne," or similar copy cat remedies for years. Sometimes I get sick, sometimes I don't. The whole point of taking these is that it HELPS support your immune system. It doesn't put an imaginary shield against everything. And once you get sick, it's not going to cure your cold.
Some experts say it's cheaper to just take a multi-vitamin and stick with vitamin C. Well that's the main ingredient in these supplements. I know it's got vitamin c, zinc, and other vitamins that help the immune system, so what the heck. I'll keep taking it and hoping for the best.
Oh and by the way, it tastes terrible, but that's not why you're taking it, right?
