Looking for a Natural Cold Remedy that Works? Here Are Three!
Many cold sufferers seek a natural cold remedy as an alternative to conventional pharmaceutical treatments. The cold tips that circulate on the internet often reflect this trend by focusing on how to remedy a cold naturally. But which types of natural cold remedies are really effective? Here are three examples of natural cold remedies that work:
- Teas made from healing herbs. There are several good options for this type of natural cold remedy. For instance, tea made from licorice root can soothe a sore throat; ginger tea settles an upset stomach; tea made with fenugreek can help to relieve respiratory inflammation.
- Salt water. Salt water is a versatile natural cold remedy. Many people know that gargling with warm salt water eases a sore throat. Less well known is that with a “neti pot” you can also use sterile salt water to clean your sinus cavities so you can breathe easier.
- Zinc gluconate. What is zinc gluconate? It’s a compound of zinc and gluconate that’s effective in delivering zinc ions into your system. Scientific theory suggests that zinc ions can interfere with the ability of the common cold virus (Human rhinoviruses) to reproduce by inhibiting the cold virus’s ability to attach to the receptors on respiratory epithelial cells in the upper respiratory tract, and thereby reduce a cold’s duration. Be careful when choosing a zinc-based treatment for a cold; some zinc cold remedies include additives that actually block the release of zinc ions. *
