So my friend texted the nurse back (on their encrypted messaging system) and suggested trying “… Read More

My talented colleague, Alyssa Singh BSN RN, is a school nurse in Seattle and we recently chatted about cold remedies and immune boosters.  Alyssa said, “Every day, I am subjected to dozens of unwashed hands, uncovered coughs, and complaints of sickness.  My fellow colleagues, particularly teachers, are in the same position.”  The teachers at her school reach for Airborne and Emergen-C as their primary defense.  Naturally, we wanted to know if these products work and which one is better.  As nurses and science geeks, we decided to evaluate the two products based on peer-reviewed research.  We looked at the active ingredients and compared their effectiveness in treating and preventing colds.
