Most everyone has seen the commercial for Airborne tablets. The ad says Airborne was "developed by a school teacher" and helps prevent you from getting sick. In reality, it is a formula that consists of a variety of vitamins and herbs that have possible immune boosting properties. It contains a large amount of Vitamin C, Echinacea and Zinc. All of these have, at one time, been thought to have the ability to boost immunity and prevent the common cold.

I have never used Airborne, but it is a very popular herbal remedy. Taken in moderation, even if it doesn't help, it shouldn't hurt. I would be very interested to know if others have tried Airborne and what kind of results you have had. Feel free to share!
