People think that just because it’s summer, you can’t get a cold. What people don’t realize is that catching a cold doesn’t really have anything to do with cold temperature as much as it does about having a healthy immune system and being around other people. During the summer, most of us are out running around breathing fresh air. During the colder months, we condense into rooms, breathing the same circulated air over and over. (Blech!) Fortunately, products like Cold-EEZE can help us fight any cold systems and keeps us going – summer or winter, rain or shine.
The Review by WiC Chick Staci of 7 on a Shoestring
(with some comments/edits by The WiC Project)
Although we here in Texas just broke a 41-day streak of 100+ degree weather, summer colds are still not uncommon here. Since no one was currently fighting a cold, we decided to let SuperDad try a lozenge to let us know what he thought due to the fact that he would probably be using them most. He was a good sport about it and seemed to enjoy the Honey Lemon Flavored lozenges which smelled sweet and were “pretty tasty.” For those of us who aren’t as fond of taking medicine, Cold-EEZE makes it easier by offering a variety of non-mediciney flavors, including Mint Frost, Tropical Orange, and Strawberries & Cream. They also have sugar-free varieties for those who need to watch their sugar-intake.
Not only did SuperDad mention the pleasant flavor, but he noticed that taking the lozenge did not leave him feeling dizzy or drowsy afterwards. He was able to go on with his evening without any effects of the medicine – another plus for this #1 pharmacist-recommended zinc cold remedy. Cold-EEZE is made for taking at the first sign of a cold and can be taken until symptoms resolve. “The earlier, the better.” The main ingredient, zinc gluconate, is believed to help prevent the cold virus from reproducing, which helps you get better, quicker. For more information about Cold-EEZE and how it helps you get well sooner, you can download a free e-book from their website.
If you have kids 6 years or older, you can also check out Kids-EEZE, an over-the-counter, soft-chew that can help relieve cold and allergy symptoms. Kids-EEZE is available in kid-friendly Grape and Strawberry flavors and since it’s a chew, you don’t need to worry about pouring or measuring, making it convenient while you’re on-the-go.
I would recommend these homeopathic lozenges to my family and friends… as well as you! When the winter weather finally sets in and cold season arrives, we will be well prepared with Cold-EEZE!
