There's a product I take called Zycam that is Zinc based and it really does seem to decrease the duration of colds.

Hot whiskey

Vitamin C ,rest and plenty of fluid

"Overall, experts have found little to no benefit from vitamin C for preventing or treating the common cold. In a July 2007 study, researchers wanted to discover whether taking 200 milligrams or more of vitamin C daily could reduce the frequency, duration, or severity of a cold". Whoops, not sure what happened to the rest of that quote. :-) There have been quite a few studies done that have shown vitamin C doesn't do much if anything for colds.

Moonshine with peppermint sticks melted in it, it will make you forget you're sick! Hope you feel better soon

@Umile18: Been taking airborne and night time cold stuff. First day I can hang in bed.

Watermelon? Really? I love watermelon. 🍉

Seems like if I drink lemon or lime juice (a whole lime squeezed into a glass of water) about 4 times a day that helps a whole lot, it alkalizes the body which makes it hostile environment for germs to grow.

Good suggestion! I have some lemons. Thanks Patti

The immune system is fuelled by Vitamin C.

When ill (or under the weather because illness is about to overtake us), taking 4 or 5 effervescent Vit. C tablets in water (not 5 at once, but taken individually at different times during the day/night), apparently halves the duration of colds etc.

No point taking Vitamin C supplements when we are in good health though. Our bodies get enough of it from food to keep our immune systems ticking over.

Usually I can get it with airborne and rest, but this bugger has held on despite all my attempts to get rid of it.
