I’ve been fighting off a cold all week and I’m out of my usual magic potion. I swear by this stuff that I get sent to me from Canada called ColdFX. I hardly ever get sick if I start taking this stuff as soon as I feel a cold coming on. It’s basically pharmaceutical grade ginseng in pill form.
I posted a Tweet on Twitter asking what works for others. Here’s a few responses I got:
carlymw@cyclingtips a multivitamin & a double dose of echinacea is my best trick for heading off a cold.
dncresearch@cyclingtips A raw garlic sandwich. Friend of mine swears by them; says he eats one when he feels a cold coming on & never gets sick.
rabbitmeg@cyclingtips horseraddish and garlic. Any brand head off a cold for me.
Padysz@cyclingtips eat a bunch of oranges(literally) and drink tons of water! Sleep lots of it works majic.
pierrepino@cyclingtips Take heaps of Vitamin C, megadoses 5000MG. I’m not a doctor but this works for me. It either gets rid of it or minimises it.
tony_1973@cyclingtips hot water+half a lemon+honey (+whisky if not riding/driving), have 2 of those, then suck on the lemon rind to clear nose :D
Any one else have good suggestions on how to kick a cold?
