Hi good morning, I wanted to know if anyone can please tell me what is the best Vitamin for a guy 21 of age working in the Offshore environment exposed to the elements can take. I have gone on 2 occasions which was in late January and returned home with an acute Viral infection which left me sick at home for a week. In late July, i returned and although i practiced the proper hygiene, etc. I still contracted the virus which left me helpless and sick at home on antibiotics once more. This is frustrating me as it looks really bad every time i go offshore i get sick terribly with the flu.
