Zinc Can Help Boost Your Immune System

During the cold and flu season, having a healthy immune system is very important and Zinc can help boost your immune system or once you become ill, it can help lessen the illness and help you regain your health.

The 2011 Cochrane Review provides evidence from 13 randomized placebo-controlled trials that taking zinc soon after the onset of the common cold significantly reduces the duration and severity of symptoms.(https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3273967/)

We offer Zinc Lozenges directly through our website at: Zinc Lozenges

Oral dissolution of throat lozenges over a 20- to 30-minute period allows ionic zinc to be locally absorbed and transported into the virally infected nose and throat.

Swallowed tablets offer no such benefits.

Most colds/viruses thrive and multiply in the nasal passages and throat (upper respiratory system). Zinc may work by preventing these viruses from multiplying. It may also stop them from lodging in the mucous membranes of the throat and nose. Zinc may be more effective when taken in lozenge or syrup form, which allows the substance to stay in the upper respiratory system and come in contact more successfully with the germs and bacteria making you ill.
