Thread: Getting through a cold

  1. #1

    Default Getting through a cold

    After a hectic 2-3 weeks of moving house, work being busy and still trying to train my body's really run down and has decided enough is enough and i've come down with the worst cold (man flu) i've had in a long time.
    Whats the best thing to do to try and fight it/ give the old immune system a boost? Gonna give training a miss till its past but cant afford to have anytime off work.
    So far i'm taking 2000mg vit C and a shed load of water. I'm not a fan of flu/cold medicines so any advice on supplements, vits/minerals Etc.

    Cheers

    Vitamin C at upto 8grams per day, its water soluble which means you won't overdose on it, and the antioxident effect from it is brilliant. Nothing gets rid of being down, worn out like a high dose of Vit C spread throughout the day, powder form is best (but tastes like ass) but the 1g/1000mg tabs are equally effective.
