Scientific theory suggests that zinc reduces the duration of common cold symptoms by directly inhibiting rhinovirus binding and replication in the nasal mucosa. All cold-eeze cold remedy products release zinc ions in your mouth that inhibit the cold virus’ ability to replicate, which shortens your cold.
Cold-Eeze treatment should begin as soon as possible when the very first symptoms of a cold start to appear, such as scratchy or sore throat, coughing, stuffiness, etc.
Completely dissolve a Cold-Eeze lozenge in your mouth; Do not chew; Repeat every 2 to 4 hours as needed.
The recommended daily dosage is 6 lozenges per day, which means an 18 count bag/box is a 3-day supply of Cold-Eeze for adults.
