As the morning wore on yesterday, I could tell I was coming down with a cold. It just happens that I have some Zinc Cold Therapy in the truck I bought a long time ago, so I started taking it. While I still have symptoms, it seems as if they are beginning to subside. What are your thoughts about zinc when it comes to colds? Have you ever tried using it? Do you think it helps?
I use zinc. got a bottle in the medicine cabinet now. it works. you can over do it so read up on it... to much of anything is bad. I have noticed sometimes taking zinc will knock something out of you quick and other times it dont seem to help as much. lots of variables there.
there are also foods that have zinc in them. if you can find a copy, and there are many revised editions, there is a book called the vitamin bible by dr. earl mindell. i recommend dropping a little coin down on a copy. it tells all sorts of good info for vitamin needs even down to various specific jobs and activity levels such as office worker, construction worker, if you work out if you dont, etc as well as foods to eat and to avoid. it also tells about protiens... which is why i got interested in the book originally back when i used to put lots of iron in my diet, in the form of 45lbs Olympic plates.
Speaking of that, zinc is also good for males in regards to prostate and testosterone. zinc is very common in products for body builders for good reason.
There is no way to be 100 percent sure of the impact it had, because I have no way to know how long a cold will last, but I do think it made a difference. You are supposed to take the first one the moment you feel a cold coming on, and continue to take them every 3 hours until the cold is gone. I guess I took one about every 4 hours. I am dealing with the usual issues from a cold, mainly my nose being stopped up because of that deviated septum, but the cold itself is much better. I did read online that their have been studies that show zinc does help shorten the duration of a cold, but they are not sure of why.
I wasn't aware of those other things about zinc Cletus, but that is good to know.
" “What we’re finding clinically with our patients is that it really only works in conjunction with Zinc,” stated Los Angeles emergency room specialist Dr. Anthony Cardillo. “So the hydroxychloroquine opens a zinc channel, zinc goes into the cell, it then blocks the replication of the cellular machinery….Every patient I’ve prescribed it to has been very very ill and within 8 to 12 hours they were basically symptom free.” "
