Airborne just lost a law suit for $30 Million dollars. The claim being that there is no science behind the product. No testing, clinical trials etc... They say it can't possible ward off colds or the flu.

I've actually take Airborne and have since it hit the drug stores.It seems to work well for me. Is it simply the placebo effect? Or, does it really work?

Would love to know what you think.....

Hi Michelle,

Well I thought it worked but my daughter and I still got sick after taking it this passed weekend while traveling. I know some people swear by it, just didn't do it for us.

Thanks for the information.

Hi Michelle, I know people (including myself) who have taken airborne and say it felt like it worked. The funny thing about it is I initially heard about the product through a pharmacist, who said sickies seemed to be having some luck with it.

Never underestimate the placebo effect, eh? If you'd like to read more on a previous conversation, visit this link.
