Cold and Flu season is here!
Having recently spent the last week with a fever and sickness bug for two days. The effect on my body was significant enough so that within 3 days of being back at work, I now have a full blown head cold. Actually, it’s more serious than that – it is proper man flu – deadly!
Anyway, a timely email from Dr Mercola was a few days too late highlighting the scientific evidence to back up use of zinc during flu season. Below is an excerpt from the article: -
‘A Cochrane Database Review of the medical research on zinc found that when taken within one day of the first symptoms, zinc can cut down the time you have a cold by about 24 hours. The review included 15 randomized control trials, consisting of 1360 participants of all age groups. Zinc was also found to greatly reduce the severity of symptoms.’
Other supplementation recommended by Mercola include Vitamin C taking several (3?!) grams every hour until you are well unless you develop loose bowels – Nice!
