Many years ago on 60 Minutes (the TV show) they were talking about the common cold and how it is spread and what can help you avoid getting one and if you already have one, how to shorten it.
What did I learn that night on 60 Minutes?
The only way you catch a cold is when the cold germs go up your nose and catch on the little hairs or cilia in your nose.
You don't get it by mouth, or because of wet feet or hair - just when those germs land in your nose. You can get it by shaking hands with someone with the cold germ on his/her hand and then touching your own nose.
There is a product they talked about that was proven to stop colds in their tracks and I bought some and now have it in my home 365 days a year.
This product was developed to make the hairs or cilia (I can’t remember which) in your nose NOT catch cold germs. The germs just slide off and don't have time to make you sick.
If you feel you have a cold you suck on this product and you cannot re-infect yourself so it shortens your cold.
If you are around someone with a cold, or cold symptoms, you pop one of these pieces of magic in your mouth and the little hairs don't do their job and you DON'T GET A COLD.
I've had friends and family who said ---YUCK I don't care for the taste but once they realized how well it works they put up with a strange taste for the relief of not catching cold or getting rid of it quick.
The Product is:
It's advertised to reduce the duration of your cold. It is a lozenge made up of ZINC, GLUCONATE, and GLYCINE.
If you haven’t given it a try, I would recommend it. Follow the directions on the package. I take one or two when I’ve been exposed and don’t wait for symptoms. It works as a prevenative for me, too.
Six to ten years without a cold isn’t anything to sneeze at. I can't remember how long ago the show was on 60 minutes.
Be sure to ask your pharmacist or doctor if Cold-Eeze is right for you and your family. Other Zinc products might be good, but none were proven to work as well as Cold-Eeze.
It’s an over-the-counter homeopathic lozenge.
