Cold-EEZE® lozenges: Clinically Proven Zinc Lozenge
Scientific theory suggests that zinc ions, when released into the upper respiratory system of a cold sufferer, interfere with the ability of the cold virus to reproduce. From this perspective, effectively releasing zinc ions so that they can be absorbed into the upper respiratory system is the key to how to shorten a cold*.
Zinc gluconate is the active ingredient in Cold-EEZE®. Unlike some other types of zinc lozenges, Cold-EEZE® does not use additives that could interfere with the release of zinc ions. This is a key distinction. In contrast to Cold-EEZE®, “many zinc products are fraught with an underlying problem: the lack of zinc ion availability” due to additives that bond with zinc ions and block their release. *
Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy Shortens Colds
The unique formula in Cold-EEZE® zinc lozenges has been proven effective in clinical studies. In double-blind, placebo-controlled studies at the Cleveland Clinic and Dartmouth College, patients given the zinc gluconate formula used in Cold-EEZE® Cold Remedy recovered fully from their cold symptoms nearly twice as fast as patients in the control groups. On average, the zinc lozenge takers got well three to four days sooner than their placebo-taking counterparts.*
