whenever i feel a cold coming on i start taking these vitamins that are just perfect.
these are the ingredients:
-triple vitamin C
(usually has fenugreek and marshmellow in it as well)
kills any cold right away and if you take it too late to nip it in the bud thats okay..it still helps heaps.
it gets rid of all the snot and congestion and gets you better quicker!
i swear by it.
only thing is when i was in the states visiting my parents, we couldnt find it anywhere. they have it here in australia but dont know about in the US.
so you can get them separate and take them i guess. i did when i was there and it worked.
echinacea doesnt work like that. it is a preventive type thing. you have to always take it on a regular basis. it doesnt help to take when you feel sick or a cold coming. its all hype that one. (in my opinion)
