How to Shorten Colds

It may seem difficult to shorten colds. Once you’ve caught a cold, it can stick with you for a week or more if it’s left to run its natural course. Making matters worse, when one person in the home has a cold, it often spreads to the rest of the family. Is there anything you can do to shorten colds so they don’t linger or spread?

Thankfully, there are simple and effective steps you can take to help shorten colds.

Take Cold-EEZE® Cold Remedy to Shorten Your Cold and Feel Better Sooner*

Want to know how to shorten a cold so that you can quickly get back to good health? Clinical studies have shown that Cold-EEZE® lozenges shorten the common cold by almost half.* In double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies at Dartmouth College and the Cleveland Clinic, patients given throat lozenges with the Cold-EEZE® Cold Remedy zinc gluconate formula recovered from their cold symptoms three to four days faster than patients in the placebo groups, on average.

Wash Your Hands to Shorten Colds and Limit Spreading*

Among the leading common cold causes is the transmission of the cold virus from person to person through direct or indirect touch. For example, cold sufferers may get small amounts of cold virus on their hands when they sneeze or cough, and then touch a surface that’s later touched by another person. The second person can pick up the cold virus in this way. The best way to limit spreading to your loved ones is to wash your hands frequently and thoroughly. It’s especially important to wash your hands after coughing or sneezing. Meanwhile, the best thing your loved ones can do for cold prevention is to wash their own hands often.
