I take zinc lozenges periodically throughout the day if anyone around me is coughing or sneezing.  A zinc rich environment is toxic to viruses -  cold and flu is viral caused and the infection method is through the respiratory system so it makes sense to keep the mouth and throat awash in zinc (not too much tho, follow pkg directions.

We started using Cold FX, which is produced by CV Technolgies Inc. Some people take it daily - apparently NHL teams use it regularly - and some people just take it when they get sick. If you take it when you first start feeling sick, it reduces the severity of your cold.

In the last month oldest kid get sick, really sick. She took OTC cold tablets. Second kid got sick the same time I did. He sort of took Cold FX, meaning he did not follow the regime. He got sick, but missed no school. I just feel as if I have a mild cold. If I miss a dose, I start getting worse.

Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands.

And get a flu shot.

"Emer'gen-C" by Alacer Corp-- available at most food co-ops, Trader Joe's, Vitamin Stores etc.

It is  a FIZZY DRINK Mix, just add to 8 oz of water,  comes in flavors like "Lemon-Lime" "Orange" Tropical", etc.

the label says it has 1000mg of Vitamin C and 32 mineral complexes and B vitamins.

plus it's fizzy and tangy.  I like it-- drink one glass every morning.

You can actually take up to 1000mg of vitamin C every hour on the hour.

Eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, especially citrus (for vitamin c) and leafy greens (brocolli has a lot of vit c, too), have lots of water, exercise, and basically keep healthy.

I also get clementines by the crate and have a few every day. I love clementines.

I don't consume dairy either, and I also get sick less. I recommend cutting down on dairy, or cutting it out.
