Frequently washing your hands is more effective than Airborne. Vitamin C can definitely help your immune system, but once you’re sick it doesn’t really do much from what I understand. Try to stay away from people who are sick as much as possible and use Lysol on thing like door knobs, etc. Take care!

Airborne is nothing more than extra vitamins with a great marketing strategy. 

It certainly will not hurt you and takning vitamins and other healthy supplements can make you healthier if you are in short supply of something, but there is not real benefit in terms of warding off an illness. 

For many its a placebo effect, and if that works with you, then great! 

Remember to wash your hands often and not to touch your face. Thay will likely work better in starving off a cold of flu.

Like PP’s said, wash your hands a lot, and especially before you eat or drink, but multiple times through the day also. (People unconsciously touch their faces a lot.) Plain old vitamin C can help some. Make sure you’re getting a lot of sleep and eating well. (If you’re sleep deprived and running on crap and caffeine, you’re more likely to get sick.)
