Does COLD-FX really work?

I’ve seen a lot of ads about this on TV, and I’ve also seen this stuff in stores. Apparently it’s supposed to ‘reduce the frequency, severity and duration of cold and flu symptoms by boosting the immune system’. Does it really, though? Has anyone here tried it? If so, what do you think about it?

Any input is appreciated.

Answer #1

I don’t think anything really works for a virus

Answer #2

I bought it last year to try and after I got it home I read the fine print and I was on the “Not for use for people with……” list so I didn’t take it. It should help as most of the ingedients in it I recongnized as stuff that boasts the immunity system. Though, I wonder if just increasing your garlic intake would do just as much. I think its worth giving a try to as its not that expensive. If it doesn’t work , you are only out a few bucks.

Answer #3

I have heard about the garlic theory to, I just very happy I very rarely get sick

Answer #4

As with most medications of this kind, it’s kind of a 50/50 thing. It will either work for you or it wont. Since each person is different. I can also say things like Zicam, that “stop” the sickness quicker are not entirely truthful with their claims. They CAN reduce the duration of the sickness, however you have to use the medication within the first two-three days of catching the virus(which most people don’t even acknowledge when it actually starts) You could have the virus for a few days before you even show major signs of it. For example it could start with sneezing or coughing, but you may pass that off as allergies or whatever. That and it will only cut the sickness by maybe a day or two. So long story short…it’s a toss up.

Answer #5

It MAY help, but its not going to have any effect on the virus itself. Its possibly just as good to up your vitamin c intake, which also boosts your immune system. I find the best thing for supporting your immune system is liquid echinachea.

Answer #6

Yes, It builds up your immune system so you won’t get sick so often and you’ll fight off the virus quicker. My Dad started taking it, and hasn’t gotten sick for 2 almost 3 years now, not even a headcold or something minor
