Anyone know a good cold remedy?
Got a stinker at the moment, been taking echinacea but doesn't seem to have any effect.
I'm supposed to be taking a young lady out tomorrow night & i feel like crap
garlic supplements seem to work for me (and no they don't make u stink), vit c, dunno what else tbh.
i take huge amounts of vitamin c at the first sign of a cold , 4-6grams a time, but once its well in your system its gonna stay there for a day or two.

I never seem to get colds or viruses or any of that crap; only really get ill when I have the flu (REAL flu, not "man" flu) or injury myself (which happens semi-frequently)
Cheers guys, Garlic & Vit c in the morning then.

No science behind the vit C...lots of new published reports on it this year...
One of the things with colds is that they clear up after a few days on their own...so you get a cold...it gets worse over a couple of days...so you dump loads of vit c/x/y/z...and it clears up in a couple of days, so must be the vit c/x/y/z? Nope, it was going anyway...
Best thing to do is just eat healthily and keep your immune system in good shape...rather than put chemicals in...
Just some thoughts...
Sleep, water and eat clean, those are about the only things that will effect a cold, sorry.
What about training when you have a cold?
Is it really so bad?
HEED MY WORDS
All the people you give it to would prob think so!
