Cold Prevention and What to Do When it Fails
With cold season upon us, cold prevention is what we all aim for. Since touching surfaces that have trace amounts of cold virus on them is one of the leading causes of a cold, washing your hands frequently and thoroughly is the single best means of cold prevention. Boosting your immune system with a healthy diet and regular exercise is another effective strategy for cold prevention.
But despite our best efforts to stay healthy, cold prevention sometimes fails and we find ourselves with the first signs of a cold. What to do? For one, we don't want our cold to spread to our loved ones. Here, hand washing is still the best defense: both the cold sufferer and everyone else in the home should wash their hands often to help prevent the spread of the virus.
The other goal at this point is to prevent the cold from lingering in the system of the cold sufferer. Here the question is: how to shorten a cold once you've got one? Evidence shows that taking Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy is an effective way to speed your recovery from a cold.*
If Cold Prevention is Plan A, Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy is Plan B
Because the cold virus comes in so many strains and is so easily transmitted, we can't always succeed in cold prevention. When cold prevention fails, turn to Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy. Cold-EEZE lozenges are the cold solution that's clinically proven to dramatically reduce the duration of the common cold. In double-blind, placebo-controlled studies at Dartmouth College and the Cleveland Clinic, the unique zinc gluconate formula used in Cold-EEZE lozenges cut the length of patients' colds by 42%. That's three to four days off the length of the typical cold.*
Take Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy at the Very First Signs of a Cold

So while you're taking over-the-counter or natural treatments for symptom relief, you can also take Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy to shorten your cold.*
