My daughter has her share of colds once the school year begins. I saw Cold Eeze on sale at Publix and thought we should have a box on hand. It contains Zinc Gluconate Glycine and comes in various flavors.
Sure enough my daughter developed a cold after school started. She began sucking on the lozenges every 4 hours the first day of her cold. Her cold did not progress as usual. So she continued them for several more days. By the 4th day her cold had pretty much disappeared! It never got bad either. She has had yet another cold, repeated this process and had the same results! She actually likes the lozenges and enjoys the flavor.
I am keeping Cold-Eeze on hand to help reduce and shorten any colds my family may get this winter.
