Many people take zinc and vitamin C at the onset of cold symptoms, and there’s now research to back up their beliefs. A Finnish study recently published in the Open Respiratory Medical Journal suggests that zinc can reduce the duration of a cold by up to 40 percent.
Typically, the only negative side effect reported from zinc lozenges is their bad taste. This is a thing of the past thanks to EZ Melts Immune Support, available at DrNewtons.com. These tablets, complete with vitamin C, zinc and beta glucan, have a tasty orange flavor that will leave you wanting more.
The research, headed by Dr. Harri Hemila of the University of Helsinki, compared cold durations in 13 trials between those who took zinc and those who took a placebo.
“Since a large proportion of trial participants have remained without adverse effects, zinc lozenges might be useful for them as a treatment option for the common cold,” concluded Hemila.
Don’t suffer in silence this cold and flu season. Take control of these nasty viruses with a zinc supplement and plenty of vitamin C.
