Finding the Right Treatment for a Cold

When you need treatment for a cold, you have a variety of options. There are, of course, the well-known over-the-counter cold and cough remedies, such as decongestants and expectorants. Alternatively you can use a natural cold remedy for gentle but effective cold relief. For example, tea made from licorice root can help to soothe your throat and chest, and mixing a bit of cayenne pepper into food or a broth can clear up congested sinuses.

While these types of treatment for a cold can provide much-needed relief of symptoms, most have a substantial shortcoming: they don’t do anything to bring your cold to an end. The ideal treatment for a cold is one that helps shorten the cold.

Cold-EEZE: Shorten Your Cold!

Fortunately for cold sufferers, there is a treatment for a cold that shortens your cold. Cold-EEZE zinc cold remedy lozenges are clinically proven to reduce the duration of the common cold.*

Double-blind, placebo-controlled studies at Dartmouth College and the Cleveland Clinic found that, on average, patients taking throat lozenges with the Cold-EEZE zinc gluconate formula recovered from their colds nearly twice as fast as patients in the placebo groups. The zinc gluconate treatment for a cold reduced the duration of patients’ colds by an average of three to four days.*
