People regularly taking oral zinc may experience shorter common cold symptoms than those who do not. Higher doses seem to have a better effect, but taking zinc for just 2-3 days seemed to have no impact at all. Common adverse events associated with zinc supplements are nausea and a bad taste.  These findings from May 2012 edition of the Journal of the Canadian Medial Association.  When I was going through school we were always taught that zinc is great for anything "below the belt."  This includes reproductive issues, prostate, lower GI and bowels.  Not to mention it is highly effective as this article suggests and mediating cold symptoms that come on (not necessarily from the cold!).  Our Phytogenics multivitamin from Metagenics in the office is a great supplemental source of zinc.  Mention this blog and get 25% off your initial purchase of Phytogenics!

Have a blessed day!
