Pretty in Zinc

Remember Lisa’s blog Calling all Sickos? She wasn’t kidding. It seems like everyone is sick these days.  So I figured I’d share my rescue remedy with you for when the dreaded cold attacks.

My secret weapon: Zinc.  In all forms really.  If my throat is sore, I’ll take zinc lozenges along with a zinc pill everyday.  Did you know that it can help shorten the length of a cold? Most forms of zinc work equally well, but if you’re trying to prevent a cold, use zinc lozenges or a zinc spray made of zinc gluconate. Pills can be a bit harsh on some people’s stomach so consume with food, just in case.

Though I hope everyone stays healthy for the holidays, if some nasty virus comes knocking on your door at least you’ll be better prepared.
