Cold Remedies That Work

When cold season comes around, we’re all on the lookout for cold remedies that work. While looking into how to remedy a cold, it’s helpful to think in terms of two distinct categories. The first category is cold remedies that ease your symptoms while you’re sick. The second type of common cold remedy helps to shorten the duration of your cold.

Cold Remedies That Work: Symptom Relievers

When you look for cold tips, what you find most often is cold remedies that work to alleviate your symptoms. These approaches to how to treat a cold don’t end your cold faster, but they help you feel a bit better while the illness runs its course. The well-known over-the-counter cold and cough remedies are in this category. Also in this category of cold remedies that work are many types of natural cold remedies. For example, teas made with herbs such as ginger, fenugreek, or cayenne pepper can relieve common cold symptoms.

Cold Remedies That Work: Shortening Your Cold

The second type of cold remedies that work are treatments that actually shorten the time that you’re sick. Here the stand-out is Cold-EEZE®, the zinc cold remedy lozenges that have been clinically proven to reduce the duration of the common cold.*

Scientific theory suggests that a well-formulated zinc cold remedy can shorten colds by interfering with the ability of the cold virus to reproduce in the upper respiratory system of the cold sufferer. Clinical studies have shown the unique zinc gluconate formula used in Cold-EEZE® Cold Remedy lozenges to be particularly effective in reducing the duration of colds. Double-blind, placebo-controlled studies at Dartmouth College and the Cleveland Clinic found that the zinc gluconate formula in Cold-EEZE® cut the length of patients’ colds by almost half. That’s three to four days cut from the length of the typical cold!*
