Anonymous "Airborne the best"
The rating should be much higher then 5 for this product. I will never use anything else again.
I was sick this morning, so on my way to work I thought I would stop and pick some up since I have only heard good things about Airbourne. As soon as I got to work, I was so ready to just turn around and go back home. I felt terrible. Before I did that, I took Airbourne. Within an hour I felt so much better. I didn't have to go home. This stuff is the BEST!!!
Anonymous "Worthes the cost"
This stuff is fantastic!! Twice I have been able to hold off getting a cold. Putting a tablet into a non-cola carbonated beverage instead of water tastes great. Definitely worth the cost!
Airborne is a miracle worker. I first started taking Airborne a couple of weeks ago when I was deathly ill with the flu. I know the directions say to take it at the first sign of a cold, but I took it in the middle of my flu. I took one cup at night (with heated water so it tasted like tea), and within two hours it had eliminated my fever. I slept on it and the next morning, it cleared up my congestion, I could finally breathe through my nose. The following day I was much, much better. And the ginger helps so much since cold medicine makes my nauseous. It was so nice taking something that I was able to keep down. Ever since then every time I feel a scratch in my throat or start feeling the pressure behind the eyes, I turn to Airborne. I have a feeling I wont be sick anymore this winter!
Lizz "It works"
THIS STUFF WORKS!!! I HAVE NOT had a cold since I started using it, even though EVERYONE around me has been sick. I always get sick this time of year, but I'm happy to say that this year has been the exception. It's been so nice! Definitely worth your money. It's what you would spend on cold medicine anyways. You might as well prevent it rather than trying to fight the symptoms later. Worth the $$$$$.
The only reason this is getting 4 stars instead of 5 stars is the taste! UGH!! Once I can choke it down, I really feel the results! I have recently began mixing it with orange juice instead of water. Not sure if that reduces the effectiveness or not...but it makes it much more pleasant to take now!
Jennifer "There is no cold"
This is the best cold supplement I have ever used. I have two small children and am exposed to colds a lot. I have also given it to my kids and it seemed to help. I get the first signs of a cold and if I take one every 4 hours and by 24 hours, there is no cold! I like to order them since the local store chains are always sold out.
Craig "The symptoms have disappeared almost immediately"
I've always been a skeptic about herbal remedies, but this is the real deal! No less than three times over the last year or so, I've taken Airborne at the first signs of a cold. Every time, the symptoms have disappeared almost immediately. This is some great stuff!
Anonymous "It gives the immune system a boost"
I take Airborne twice a week, even when I don't have any symptoms. If I do feel a cold coming on, I'll increase it to once or twice a day. I'm around alot of patients, and I think it really gives the immune system a boost!
Carolyn "tastes good"
only wish this product worked for me because the idea is a great one. But I will not be purchasing another pricey package of Airborne. I give it two stars, because it actually tastes pretty good.
Shytown77 "The best money you'll ever spend"
I wish I could give Airborne 6 stars! I'm a nanny so runny noses follow me everywhere I go. The TV ads may seem lame, but the product stands up on it own. Flu season whipped though the Midwest, and flu shots became harder to find than a snowy day in Cuba. My only resort was to build up my immune system and say a prayer. During the last three months, I've been flying between the States and Europe. I've taken Airborne before I fly, but also at the first sign of an impending cold. I've made it though with out a single sneeze or cough! Honestly, over the last eight years as a Nanny I'm lucky if I've remained cold free for an entire week. It is now my mission to convert all those I know to the way of Airborne. No more stuffy head colds or medicated workdays...the best money you'll ever spend!
Does exactly what it says, and doesn't taste too bad either!
use lots of supplements (and regular medications, for that matter) so I am aware that some work and, well, some just don't. Airborne worked for my family. My 7-year-old brought home a cold virus, and the entire family immediately started taking Airborne. The virus was arrested! I have used it on several other occasions when I began to get that first little tickle of a cold in my nose and throat, and Airborne worked each time. I used to try and arrest colds with vitamin c and zinc, but this is much more effective.
Priscilla O'Brien ""
I was getting a scratchy throat after volunteering at my daughter's school (1st grader). Half of the class was sick, and I dreaded the cold to come. My colds always begin with a tickly throat. I bought Airborne and took it when I got home. My cold was gone by the morning, and my daughter and I (along with two other students) were the only ones that didn't catch the cold.
Anonymous "Worked everytime"
Really works. Only product I ever took that got rid of cold symptoms. Have used 3 times, and worked each time.
Lorenzo "Great result"
While I'm the type to be skeptical about things like this, I get colds so often and have tried so many other things that didn't work that I decided to give this a shot. Well, I don't have too many data points, but the data I do have suggests that this really works. I had the WORST pre-cold sore throat and chills 4 days ago (I ran a 10k two days earlier, and strenuous exercise always brings on the colds with me). I started taking this stuff every 3 hours, as suggested, over the next 2 days. The result - no cold, and I'm almost at 100% today!
Right after a 3-hour flight filled with kids, I started to feel the telltale signs of a cold, so I gave this stuff a try. I was mildly ill for several days. I don't know whether this stuff prevented me from getting worse or whether it's just a well-marketed placebo, but I'm giving it a 4 because it tasted better than I expected. It doesn't really taste particularly good, but there are many medications that claim to have "orange flavor" without tasting like orange at all.
Allergra "Prevent from getting sick"
Airborne WORKS! I began using it six weeks into a flu bout (I'm diabetic and my immune system is weak) and at once my symptoms subsided over a span of just a few hours, after weeks of fever, chills, cold sweats, and crushing fatigue. My husband has used it during my illness to prevent himself from getting sick, and so far he has been fine. Every time he felt himself succumbing to flu symptoms he took another tablet, and each time he recovered in hours. Trust this stuff; it REALLY WORKS!
Anonymous "I highly recommend this product"
I highly recommend this product. Over the last month there were two occasions where I was sure I had caught a cold. The first time, I started getting tightness in throat, sneezing, runny nose, etc. I took Airborne religiously every 3 hours during the afternoon and evening. The next morning, my symptoms were GONE! I was able to ward off another cold same way just a few days ago after traveling. This stuff REALLY WORKS!
Carrie "Feel much better"
My husband took this product and said that within 24 hours he was feeling 75% better. I will continue to purchase this.
Karen "It has gotten me through many a cold season"
I've used Airborne at least a dozen times over the past few years. I have to admit that it really, really works! You have to take it at the very beginning of a cold - first throat tickle is best- but it usually heads off the cold, or at the very least, cuts the duration of the cold into less than 1/2. I highly recommend this product. It has gotten me through many a cold season.
Since I began my job in a daycare center I've caught every germ the children had ~ I decided to give this a go and it worked GREAT!
Josh "I'm a believer"
I was sick as a dog yesterday, and then i took these every three hours, and today i feel about 75% better! I'm a believer.
I fully recommend this product. I'm a teacher and it seems like I get everything my students have and then pass it along to my family. If I have an ill student, I take this right away and I have seen a marked decrease in the number of times I get sick. This is a product you don't want to run out of!
Did not harm me (other than financially), but did not prevent or shorten a severe cold when taken as directed at first hint of symptom (for me, that's a funny taste in the back of my throat, which I know will be followed by a sore throat within 12 hours, then by other symptoms).
This stuff really zaps away the germies! I took it the minute I felt a sore throat coming after my flight from LA to NYC, and I haven't gotten a cold yet!!! Plus, the effervescent tabs make taking it so much easier; I hate tablets!
Allison "Love it"
My sister-in-law told me about airborne and I LOVE it!!! I take it when I feel a cold coming on and it less the severity and duration of symptoms. It is so much better than sucking on one of the zinc lozenges. It tastes good, you're done taking it quickly and it really works!!!
Agape "Stay healthy"
Airborne is one of the products in my Cold and Flu arsenal! I swear by this stuff. It is the best in prevention. If you know you have a stressful time coming up, or a time you know that you will be exposed to some nasty germs, this is the stuff for you. It's especially helpful when you have to take care of sick people. I'm talking to all the Moms out there. When the kids get a sniffle, you need to take this stuff right away. Kids can use Airborne as well. Good Luck and Stay Healthy!!!
Anonymous "Take Airborne"
I used this product during the last cold season and have it ready in hand for this winter, too! Even just one dose when you're feeling a little run down, achy, or stuffy seems to make a big difference. I'll vouch that it has chased away many would-have-been colds for me in the past. Works best if you can take it as soon as you suspect that you might be getting sick, but it also makes an impact even if you weren't able to have some right away. Great tasting, too.
Jane "Feel great when travelling"
I love this product. I've been using it for a couple years now. They have a new flavor - Key Lime. This one tastes great and makes me feel great when travelling or just taking it when I start to feel a cold coming on - it "nips it in the bud" before it has a chance to get nasty. Highly recommend.
Fantastic results. I work in a hospital ER where I am exposed to all kinds of things. It has kept the colds away. Thank goodness. It is very hard to get around here so I ordered it and am looking forward to receiving it and sharing it with my fellow co-workers.
Absolutely wonderful product. As a working woman and single mom, I'm often sick and can't afford to be. Airborne works amazingly well, but has been hard to find in most drugstores I've tried. It's an excellent cold remedy if you take at the first cold symptom.
Anonymous "Thank you"
My wife came down with a bad cold. I began to take Airborne right away, and I did not get sick.
Thank you, Airborne.
Jackie "Great product"
I was introduced to Airborne by a friend here at work. She swears by it and told me to try it when I came down with a head cold. I work in an office with closely placed cubicles and people come in sick all the time. This stuff is great! Although I didn't catch it right at the beginning, my cold only lasted three days and the symptoms were much less severe than they normally would have been. It's amazing! The way it works it so worth the cost! I will always use Airborne!
Anonymous "Stop the cold"
I am hooked! I am a mother of 2 small children and a 2nd grade teacher - so I am around germs all day and night. My husband was recently sick with strep throat and because the kids and I took Airborne during his bout of illness none of us got strep! Amazing, since it is so contagious. Since then I have taken it at the very first sign of cold and without failure, it has stopped the cold! My husband doesn't believe in it, and has continued to suffer illness after illness. The rest of us continue to stay healthy! My only complaint is that all of our stores are out of it!
I have to take a lot of meds for my health, and that puts a limit on what I can take for a cold. I am always afraid of taking the wrong thing. I saw Airborne on TV and was interested...then I saw the woman who made it on Oprah and that convinced me. I have given so much to family and friends; It is such a wonderful product. I even told one of my Doctors about it. Thank you for peace of mind and something that really works.
I am a person who gets really sick with a cold...I have copd, and usually a cold turns into very bad upper respiratory illness for me, which means many courses of antibiotics, and often having to be hospitalized. I learned of this product from the Oprah show. I started to get a cold, took these tablets, and just like all the other people said...poof! My cold symptoms disappeared!! They would come back, and I took it again, and same thing!! I took them twice a day for about a week, and no cold!!!! This is highly unusual for me.
Excellent, excellent, excellent. First learned of AIRBORNE when Oprah began raving about its effectiveness on her show. I took it when I felt a scratchy throat, the first sure sign that I'm catching a cold. It got rid of my symptoms in 3 hours. Same thing with my sister and mother. Excellent stuff. Bravo to the school teacher inventor!!
Airborne is AWESOME. This is the BEST way to AVOID getting a cold, I use it every time I get on a plane and travel. I have not gotten sick ever since I've used this stuff, and it has been about a year. Anytime I start feeling a bit under the weather, stomach upset, flu symptoms, and scratchy throat - I start taking Airborne. I used to get sick at least 3 times a year.
Annie "the symptoms were gone"
Airborne may work for some and not for others, and it may be placebo, hype, or all in my head. However, all I can say is that I have tried it twice and it worked. I woke this morning with stuffy sinus, aches, sore throat, and nausea, and could not miss a day of work, took one airborne and by the time I arrived, I was 100% better. I took it again tonight when coughing and congestion began again, and within the hour the symptoms were gone. I have sinus infections year round from what I think is a sick office, and I plan to spread the word. It works.
