How to Reduce the Duration of a Cold

When you have a cold, there are plenty of options for easing your symptoms while you’re ill. But is there anything you can do to actually reduce the duration of a cold? Do you have to settle for symptom relievers that make you less miserable as your cold drags on, or is there a remedy that will shorten the duration of a cold so you can get back to your life?

Cold-EEZE® Cold Remedy Lozenges: Clinically Proven to Reduce the Duration of a Cold

There’s been a lot of attention recently paid to zinc and colds, with the publication of a comprehensive review of zinc cold remedy research that concluded that zinc can measurably reduce the duration of a cold. What’s also apparent across the many studies that have been done on zinc for colds is that the formulation and means of zinc delivery impact the results.

Some of the top results for reducing the duration of a cold come from the unique zinc gluconate formula used in Cold-EEZE® Cold Remedy, as shown by two double-blind, placebo-controlled studies. In a study by scientists at Dartmouth College, patients in placebo groups had cold durations between six and nine days on average, while the colds of patients given zinc gluconate lozenges (the active ingredient in Cold-EEZE®) lasted only four to five days. A second study at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic reported that patients on placebos were sick for 7.6 days on average, while for patients taking Cold-EEZE® lozenges the average duration of a cold was only 4.4 days.

The combined results of these two peer-reviewed, published studies showed the unique zinc gluconate formula in Cold-EEZE® reduces the duration of a cold by almost half. That’s a three-to-four day reduction in the duration of the average cold.
