This holiday season, Santa brought us more than presents, we brought us the stomach flu AND sinus issues! Thanks, Santa. Really, you shouldn’t have. Really.
As any Mom knows, it can be difficult for moms to stay healthy once their kids come down with a cold. But as a mom, you don’t have time to be sidelined with a bout of the common cold. In that case, Mom’s need to be armed and dangerous against the lurking germies. What’s one product you should have in your arsenal?
Here’s all the nerdy scientific info (which rocks my world, of course!): Cold-EEZE zinc lozenges are clinically proven to safely and effectively reduce the duration and severity of the symptoms of a common cold by 42 percent (or within three to four days). The proprietary zinc gluconate glycine formula, the active ingredient in Cold-EEZE, provides 13.3 mg of ionic zinc per lozenge. Zinc can help promote the strength of the immune system, and is required for the development and activation of T-lymphocytes that help to fight infection.
The bottom line: Once you feel a cold coming on, start sucking one Cold-EEZE lozenge every two-to-four hours. It will make you feel better, faster. Available in tasty flavors like new sugar-free pomegranate, strawberries and cream, cherry and honey lemon, among others, Cold-EEZE lozenges are a good way to get your zinc without a metallic aftertaste.
Organix Cough and Sore Throat Drops
This product, from the makers of Cold-EEZE, are the first over-the-counter cough and sore throat drops Certified USDA Organic. These great-tasting, medicated drops contain a proprietary formulation of natural menthol derived from organic peppermint oil combined with pectin to suppress coughs, cool nasal passages and soothe irritated, sore throats. Organix is available in a unique Dark Chocolate Mint flavor, as well as Purely Peppermint, Orchard Cherry and Golden Honey Lemon. Even the twist wraps of each lozenge is made from fully compostable corn starch!
I had the opportunity to try both the Cold-Eeze Cold Remedy Lozenges in Tropical Fruit Flavors and the Organix Cough and Sore Throat Drops in Chocolate Mint. Unfortunately, I had a sore throat right after Christmas, but I remembered I had these samples to try out…what luck! LOL! To be honest, I wasn’t so sure about the Chocolate Mint flavor because I am a die hard HALLS Cherry girl, but it was actually pretty tasty and my throat did feel better. I did try the Cold-eeze Tropical Fruit Flavors as well in hopes of cutting short the amount of time I felt sick. These tasted good, too!
