My Go-to for cold/flu

I find this very effective when taken at the VERY first sign of imbalance. For me when I notice a tickle in my throat I start to overdose this and Wellness Formula as well as Cold Snap. I recover within a day.

Any time I feel that little tickle in the back of my throat or sinuses that tells me that I'm starting to get sick, I start a regimen of these bad boys, and I can usually kick it before it even has a chance to come on full blast.

This has prevented numerous illnesses for me. It doesn't work as well if you wait until you get sick though. I take at the first sign.
