That's like saying 'eat healthy and take care of yourself and you'll recover faster'.

Obviously that's true, but everyone who suddenly suggests vitamins when someone gets sick is silly.

If you're deficient, you need to be taking that stuff all the time, not just when you get sick. By the time you start taking it after you get sick you're already on your way to recovering and even if it helps you're looking at a such a tiny increase in recovery time.

I wasn't suggesting he take any vitamin d while sick as some sort of cure. I think taking any vitamins suddenly to help a cold you already have is stupid. If you want real results go to a doctor and get medicine that actually works fast.

What I was getting at is everyone was suggesting random vitamins so I suggested 2 that are actually found to be the most commonly found deficiencies among people living in winter climates. It has nothing to do with his cold, rather I thought some non random vitamin advice was needed.

Basically everyone living in a snowboard climate should be taking vitamin d and omega 3 regardless of whether they're sick of not.

Wear a gaiter
Don't kiss anyone
Stay hydrated
Listen to your body--if your muscles are achy due to sickness, take it easy, don't overdo it

The main thing is you don't get a cold from the cold, and the cold won't make it worse unless you don't dress warm enough and your body has to use energy to stay warm.

When I used to get colds I'd go for a run, even in the winter. Sometimes the good sleep I have after working out is maybe the best thing for a cold?!?

Yeah, board through it... Now a flu is another thing, I've been boarding when I had to run to the washroom after each run, not fun!

this will definitely help! lol i would recommend staying hydrated, and listening to your body. Only you know how you feel and what your body can handle. Also keep in mind the more you run down your body, the harder it is going to be to recover from this cold. good luck
