I have a family vacation coming up, and since it is in the middle of prime flu season, and we have 3 people in our home that are in schools, I am a little worried. We are flying to our destination, and I am worried about that too- sitting in close quarters with lots of other passengers who could be passing germs to us on our way to a vacation that we have been looking forward to for a very long time.
A friend of mine recommended that I try Airborne. I looked into it, and learned that it was invented by a 2nd grade teacher who was sick all the time from her students. Airborne acts as an immunity booster, containing vitamins and herbs to help your body fight germs more effectively.
I found Airborne in my local grocery store, next to the cold medicines. I found 3 flavors- original, lemon-lime, and grapefruit, and I chose the grapefruit. I got it home and opened it up, deciding to try one now to see how it tastes. I read the bottle, which contains 12 tablets just slightly larger than a quarter. I was surprised to see that you could take up to 3 of these a day- my first thought was that this bottle wouldn't last too long.
To take Airborne, you drop the tab into 4-6 ounces of water. It bubbles as it dissolves; you wait about a minute, then drink. It makes the water carbonated like soda, and since I don't like soda, I didn't like the carbonation in the water. Also, I noticed that there was some residue on top of the water, which wasn't very appealing. The taste was rather bitter and medicinal, but maybe another flavor would be a little more palatable.
All in all, I will probably use Airborne when we come close to our trip, but only one time a day. If it keeps us from gettin sick, it is well worth it to me!
