A Highly Effective Way to Take Zinc for Colds
Cold sufferers got great news recently about zinc for colds. A comprehensive review of nearly 30 years of research on zinc for colds confirmed that zinc reduces the duration of the common cold. Led by the U.S. Cochrane Center, the review spanned 15 studies involving a total of more than 1,000 participants. While results varied somewhat from study to study, the aggregate data clearly showed that zinc administered within 24 hours of onset of symptoms shortens colds.
The variation in results among different studies also suggests that when it comes to zinc for colds, the zinc formulation and form of delivery are important. A continuing education activity, published by Pharmacy Times, concluded that “the effectiveness of the different products in reducing the… duration of the common cold depends on the formulation and the route of administration.”
