zinc lozenges improve recovery from cold

Though there is much popular debate over whether zinc lozenges really work against colds, several studies have shown that, when you use an effective form of zinc, zinc lozenges have a remarkable ability to kill colds: in fact, they work every time! When zinc lozenges haven’t worked in studies, it has been because either the dose was too low or the wrong form was used. The best forms are zinc gluconate, acetate or gluconate-glycine. They work best when they do not contain citric acid, tartaric acid, sorbitol or manitol.

Not only are there several individual studies that prove the power of zinc lozenges over the common cold, a recent meta-analysis of 3 placebo-controlled studies of zinc acetate demonstrated that zinc lozenges shorten colds by an incredible 2.73-2.94 days. At least 4 other meta-analyses have proven that zinc lozenges shorten the duration of colds.

And now, an important new meta-analysis has proven that zinc lozenges powerfully help you recover from a cold . . . .

The new meta-analysis also looked at the zinc acetate form of lozenge. It included 3 double-blind, placebo-controlled studies with a total of 199 people infected with the common cold. The doses ranged from 80-92mg a day of elemental zinc.

By the fifth day of the study, 70% of the zinc lozenge group had recovered from their colds compared to only 27% of the placebo group. That’s huge! That means that 2.6 times more people were cured in the zinc lozenge group.

The zinc lozenges were equally effective regardless of the person’s age, gender or race. It also made no difference if they had allergies or were a smoker. The zinc lozenges also worked just as well of people with severe colds as it did on people whose colds were milder.

Zinc lozenges not only beat the cold, they did so safely: there were no serious side effects.
