Airborne Immune Support Supplement vs. equate Immune Support

Who else is just trying to stay healthy in these crazy cold temperatures?!  We are doing our best here at Brandefy, and that means disinfectants and immune boosters.  We tested Airborne against equate Immune Support for flavor, consistency, and ingredient panels.  We found them to be very similar, and we'll be making the switch to save.

 With very similar ingredient panels, the switch is an easy one here.

Brandefy compares store brands (i.e., equate) to name brands (e.g., Airborne) to show you when the generic is as good as the name brand, and to warn you when it is not. Our purpose is to help you save time and money, and to have a good time while doing it.

We wish we could get all of our vitamins from food alone, but that's not always plausible... especially in those winter months when we crave warm comfort food.  So, we picked up these immune boosters.  Both Airborne and the equate version had nearly identical active ingredient panels with Vitamins A, C, E and several minerals.    The difference here were the inactive ingredients.  The equate version has a few more ingredients for flavoring.  This results in the equate version being 5 calories more than Airborne.  This seems negligible to us, but may be important to other consumers.

We used the same amount of water for each tablet, and they both dissolved quickly.  The color and flavor were similar, but the equate version had a slightly stronger flavor.  We found the Airborne was a little more like a soda because it had less orange flavor, so the bubbles came through more.  The equate had about the same amount of bubbles, just a little more orange-y.  

We hope to continue to save you time and money, and that this post helps remind you to stay healthy this cold and flu season!
