Is Airborne A Good Supplement To Take To Prevent A Cold?

Question: Is Airborne a good supplement to take to prevent a cold?

Answer: Airborne is a supplement that was advertised as being useful for common cold illnesses but really never had any data to support that claim. As a consequence, I think we have to say that there's no real reason to believe that Airborne or the constituents that are in Airborne would have any beneficial impact at all on common cold symptoms.
