Pre-emptive Common Cold-buster

I whipped this one up recently when my boyfriend came down with the cold I was just getting over, just a couple days before we were heading out of town to visit relatives. He was bummed out that he was going to be sick through the holiday, so I grabbed a few things that I often take in smaller combinations and threw them all together. It worked! He felt better the next day and by the time we had to get on the bus the following day he was right as rain.

Warning: this is going to be a little heavy on your stomach. Take it when you have had a good healthy meal to absorb it. My boyfriend felt a little queasy for a couple hours after taking it. I tried it a few months later when I felt something coming on, and I did feel a little gastrointestinal heaviness for the next hour. I’m told I have a stomach of steel. My boyfriend has a more sensitive stomach which is easily upset. Take the behavior of your gut into account when proceeding.
