I have found the best results taking echinacea tea. Several cups a day seem to be the best. I have bee using this for years with very good results. Capsules are good also if you are on the run.

Comment:
I start drinking Echinacea tea at the first sign of a cold and it stops the cold or at least helps get better faster. I also drink it when one of my family members starts to get sick, and then I don't get sick. It definitely works, maybe not 100%, but enough to make a big difference. I have never had any side effects from it.

Comment:
I have used Echinacea for over 25 years and have not had a cold for over 20 years. I take 2 at the first sign of a sniffle and 1 per day for the next 6 days. (Continued use will cause your body to reduce it's own resistence to these virous'.)
