What do you think of airborne?

  1. Does anyone think airborne improves your chances of not getting viral infections? Has anyone used it with success? Thanks for any input.

    Has anyone given it to a child?

    I have taken it during cold and flu season in the ER and it seemed to really help me not to catch those. Or if I seemed to be coming down with either, I took it as directed on the bottle and the symptoms seemed to go away. Anyway, I liked it.

    Thanks, I think I will try it. My daughter just started school, and this is the 2nd time she has had a viral cold. I'll try anything now. :spin:

    I just took some yesterday and my cold seems better today. I was 3 days into the cold so it's not completely gone, but much much better.

    I love this stuff!! And I am the cynical one :-)
    Everyone in my family came down with a virus, except for me. Was it the airborne? I don't know, but I was up close and personal with everyone and all got sick except me.

    I love Airborne. It seems to work well on minor colds, but if it's a biggie (like I had last week), it did not do much.

    I take it before I go to clinicals 2 days/ week and if I feel like I am coming down with something.

    I've tried it. It has nipped the beginning stages of a cold last week. Not sure if it was just a placebo effect, but hey , no cold this week.
    I gave some to my daughter today, as some kids in her class are sick. Time will tell if she does fall ill.

    It does work, IMO, but it sure has a LOT of Vitamin A in it. So be careful how long you use it.
