Zinc for the common cold!
A review of 15 clinical trials published since 1984 has concluded that taking Zinc supplements can reduce the length of a cold and help ward it off in the first place:â€œZinc inhibits rhinoviral replication and has been tested in trials for treatment of the common cold.
This review identified 15 randomized controlled trials, enrolling 1360 participants of all age groups, comparing zinc with placebo (no zinc). We found that zinc is beneficial in reducing the duration and severity of the common cold in healthy people, when taken within 24 hours of onset of symptoms.
People taking zinc are also less likely to have persistence of their cold symptoms beyond seven days of treatment.â€ (16/02/2011 - Cochrane Collaboration)
