    I prefer the high fiber in violas.. My motto... eat a viola for lunch!

    Lysine works FABULOUSLY at preventing this... my patients love me for recommending this... Some have been known to even kiss me in gratitude... of course once their cold sore has resolved.

    I've often wondered about the back and forth debate on this subject. Studies notwithstanding, I know that when I take a multi-vitamin, I seem to become sick (colds, flu, etc.) less frequently, and if I do get sick, I am over it much more quickly. I cannot base this on any scientific studies, only on personal observation over my 40 something years of periods in life when I have and have not taken a multi. Coincidence? Imagination? Placebo? Deficient in...something? Dunno, I just know that I choose to take my multi, and, if nothing else, I have more expensive pee........:lol:

    This is all true, and putting it in perspective, if you walk 30-40 minutes a day at a comfortable pace, 4-5 days a week, you will increase your basilar DAILY calorie burning by 400 calories a day EVEN on the 2-3 days you are not walking. Putting it into another perspective 400 calories a day x 7 days in a week = 2800 calories which translates close to a pound of fat last per week.

    Nah.. the huge factor they expereince is that they are competitive sportspeople... and getting out to do physical excercise... the supplements... they factor in not nearly as much... if at all.

    There is reasonable evidence that vitamin C and zinc can help treat the common cold. So maybe that's that link.

    But either way, Bob has a healthy view on the subject. Nothing wrong with a daily multivitamin. It might help. It probably won't hurt (although certain supplements have known side effects).

    In the end, maybe Vulgano has it right ... bananas, aspirin and beer. :-)
