In brief: Vit C

Vitamin c can help the immune system fight the cold.
It does not prevent colds ahead of time. Nothing, however, will help you "get rid" of a cold "quickly." if begun in the first 24hours of symptoms, zinc, elderberry, golden seal and echinacea have all been shown to shorten the duration and lessen the severity of a cold.

In brief: Propolis

Propolis with honey take orally and wait until honey melt i'n mouth and swallow.
Honey will draw bacteria out while propolis kills this.
