Easy and effective. (4 Stars)
There's really only so much you can do for a cold. Lots of rest, good hydration, and medications to combat the symptoms. But if you're a very busy mom like me you just don't have time to wait for all of that to get you back to normal.
Since you should already be trying to stay hydrated Sprouts Cold Remedy has proven to be an easy to add option that has really helped me this cold season. I just add the drops to my water bottle when I start feeling the first hint of a cold and keep drinking like normal. I can't say it will work well for everyone (and I can detect the thyme-ish flavor in my water which is kind of unpleasant) but I've found that when I've added this to my cold care routine over the past six weeks I haven't been getting brought down to needing a day in bed like I usually do both times I started having cold symptoms.
If you tend to struggle with frequent colds during the winter I would certainly recommend giving this a try, it's simple to add into your routine, doesn't require a prescription, and if it shaves a few days off of a cold for you or helps you not get as rundown by it it's well worth the price.
