I have not had a cold in two to three years, and I started taking Vitamin C four days ago. Well, now I have a cold. I thought Vitamin C was supposed to prevent colds. Share your cold remedy, I need to run to the store to pick something up not sure what to buy.

I used to catch cold often in the winter time. Since I started taking Vitamin C a year a go, I have not caught cold at all. I don't know whether it is Vitamin C or just my better health. I am also making sure that I drink orange juice every morning. That's another excellent source of Vitamin C. It has been bitterly cold the last days, but I am doing fine.

I am just going to stick to orange juice from now on. I took theraflu and feel a lot better.

When I was a growing up and got sick, I was always told to drink a lot of water and orange juice. One of my family friends told me drinking a lot would help me "pee out" the sickness, lol. Cold medicines canhep reduce fevers or help stuffed/runny noses but I think the best "cure" for a cold is just laying down and resting.

Do you combine all these ingredients? I love the natural products. I actually had ginger tea this morning.

I think that is runny nose and not colds, do you sneeze too often? If yes you should buy medicine that has anit-histamine or so. Vitamin C tablets are not enough, go with fruits :D

Actually no sneezing, I only use the Vitamin C because it was in my cupboard.
