Zinc stops the cold from reproducing. You could also do 1,000-3,000 mg of vit c as soon as you feel it coming on. I alternate vit c and garlic supplements to ward off colds, so far so good.

Airborne seems to work OK for me too but more often I have Vit C and Garlic in the house than I do Airborne so that's what I use. Airborne is (in a nut shell) Mag, Vit C, and Echinea along with some other vitamins high in antioxidants, with Zinc and Selenium (which act similar).
