C, echinacea, zinc.. I take it all. Given all the garlic I eat and the vitamins I take, my immune system SHOULD rock, but for some reason, I seem as prone to these viruses and anybody.
I also give my kids these echinacea & C gummi vitamins. I haven't found a good way to give them zinc.... One's too little to swallow pills, and the other refuses to do it.
I just want to have a healthy family again... Someday!
Thanks for the suggestion. I'll look for Ole'. Currently, I use Herbon cough drops, which contain a lot of Echinacea. They work great for the cough, but they don't seem to kill the cold.
Have a good week! -EoR
