  • If you want to stop a cold or flu. take a zinc supplement. Every time I start feeling unwell, a take 2 tablets of zinc, and its gone. Since I have being taking zinc, I have never had a full blown cold or flu in the last 3 years.

  • Not in any medicinal sense other than it might just make you feel a bit better because you enjoy it. Still, if you want to believe that it helps then y'know, anything that gets you through that bottle :P lol

  • I don't know if wine would be much help when you have a cold. When I have a cold I have a hot rum toddu just before getting in bed. Just get a large coffee mug, add 2 or 3 ounces of rum, a good portion of honey and lemon juice then fill with boiling water & drink it while it's still good and hot. The lemon and honey open the nasal passages, the water hydrates you and the rum and it's fumed make you drowsy and help you get to sleep.

  • Definitely not. Everyone has alcohol intolerance to some extent, but for many, it's bad enough that it actually causes congestion, particularly in the nose. If you're already congested, this definitely will not help.

  • No alcohol dehydrates u which makes colds worse, try lots of veggies, garlic and apple cider vinegar in water to make ur body more alkaline and avoid meat, dairy and sugar when ur sick

  • It can ease some of the symptoms, similar to alcohol-based medicines like Nyquil.

  • Alcohol is a great disinfectant. Things like grogs or hot wine have been used for centuries to cure colds.

  • Yes, in several ways. It's slightly hydrating. The tanic acids help wash away that "cold crud" from the mouth. And it is mildly analgesic and calms coughs slightly.

    I wouldn't say it's very effective in any regard, but it's not like it's bad either. Certainly it should not be mixed with some other medications, but what the heck. If it makes you feel better, do it.
