Airborne Citrus Chewable Tablets: Does Airborne Work?

Pros:Kept me from getting sick
Cons:Did it really keep me from getting sick?
The Bottom Line: I took Airborne, and I did not get sick. However, I could have avoided illness with my handwashing regimen.
At the beginning of the year, I received a sample of Airborne chewable tablets at Target. I liked the taste, and a couple of weeks later, it occurred to me that it might be a good idea to take some Airborne during my trip to Disney World.

I purchased two bottles, and I have been taking Airborne for the past 12 days or so.
Airborne is not designed to treat any illness. Rather, it is a vitamin supplement that gives the immune system an extra “blast” of Vitamin C and other vitamins and minerals that contain immune boosting properties.
The tricky thing is that a dose is 4 pills, and each bottle contains 32 pills. This breaks down to 8 doses. The instructions say that you can take 3 doses in a 24 hour period, so that means that each bottle contains 2.5 days worth of doses.
I did not take 3 doses every day. I took two doses per day on travel days, and one dose per day during the vacation, I may have even forgotten a dose on some days.
I know that influenza is particularly nasty this year, and I wanted to protect myself. While I cannot say for sure, it is very likely that I was exposed to seasonal colds and/or the flu at the airport, on the airplane, and at Disney World.
I have managed to stay healthy. I cannot say that this is due to the Airborne regimen, but taking it made me feel better about potential exposure. I was the only one in the family who took Airborne. My children took a Vitamin C supplement designed for children, and my husband didn’t take anything. We all washed our hands frequently and used Wet Ones between handwashing sessions.
It should be noted that even though I was the only one took Airborne, no one else caught a cold or came down with the flu.
The pills are somewhat large, but since they are chewable, that didn’t bother me. If these horse pills had to be swallowed, I would absolutely be complaining about the size. The taste is tart. In fact, they taste chalky and sweet, just like Sweetarts. I liked the taste quite a bit, but if sweet and tart are not your thing, you might have a problem with the taste.
Each dose contains 20 calories and 5 carbs. The main ingredients are a core of vitamins, including A, C, E, and a few others. Each dose also contains a proprietary herb blend (including Echinacea and ginger) and a proprietary amino acid blend. For the full ingredient list, I would recommend looking at the back of the package at the store or on the manufacturer’s website.
The packaging also cautions against taking this if pregnant or breastfeeding. Consult a physician if taking any medication before taking Airborne.
I would recommend Airborne Chewable tablets in the citrus flavor. I enjoyed the taste, and I did not get sick while traveling. I don’t know if the Airborne was 100% responsible for keeping me healthy, but I didn’t want to take any chances after hearing how bad the flu season has been. I would definitely buy more Airborne for our next travel adventure.
I paid $6.xx for each bottle of Airborne Chewable at Target.
