The Common Cold

The common cold is an infectious viral disease that, in the U.S. population alone, occurs more than a billion times each year. One reason the common cold is so common is that there are many strains of cold virus – over two hundred different viruses can trigger a cold. That cold viruses are so easily transmitted from person to person is another factor that makes the common cold the most widely occurring viral disease.

Once the common cold strikes, the cold sufferer typically experiences the all familiar cold symptoms: coughing, sore throat, stuffy nose and sneezing. Some cold tips focus on reducing the severity of these nagging common cold symptoms. But to really shorten a cold, take Cold-EEZE® lozenges, a natural zinc cold remedy scientifically proven to shorten the duration of the common cold.*

Shorten the Common Cold with Cold-EEZE® Cold Remedy*

Scientific theory suggests that the cold virus causes infection by being absorbed into the upper respiratory system and replicating. It is also believed that zinc ions compete for these same receptors as the cold virus and thereby block it from replicating.

In double-blind, placebo-controlled studies at Dartmouth College and the Cleveland Clinic, scientists found that the unique zinc gluconate formula used in Cold-EEZE® lozenges shortened the duration of patients’ colds by almost half. That’s three or four days off the length of the average common cold.*

It’s conclusive evidence like this that has made Cold-EEZE® the #1 pharmacist recommended zinc cold remedy**.
