The colder season and the getting a cold season is definitely upon us. I have been having a really sore, dry throat each morning, but it’s not developed into a full blown cold just yet, but I know it will. When I went into work on Monday morning, about 40% of the staff were coughing, sneezing or blowing their noses….this didn’t bode well for anyone!
How to beat the common cold – Introducing Coldzyme
ColdZyme is a new, revolutionary mouth spray, which, instead of effecting the systems of a cold it actually targets the cause of the cold instead. Meaning, you don’t spread nasty germs to others!. Hooray!
Taking Coldzyme will help reduce the length of time you actually feel ill/start to get any symptoms and it could prevent you from the germ developing into something worse.
Tablets have always been a bit hard to swallow and then take ages to actually start working. With the Coldzyme mouth spray it actually starts working from the second you spray it into your mouth. It creates a protective barrier in your throat which means that it will stop you spreading the germs elsewhere.
“The barrier acts osmotically on the cold viruses, trapping them and preventing them from binding with human cells, helping the body to remove them naturally.”
Coldzyme has been clinically proven to reduce the viral load and the number of days of sickness in individuals infected with the common cold. So, by reducing the length of sickness and the actual virus strength it means you are bound to feel better in no time.
I know I am on the verge of getting a cold, which will spread to my children and my parents. I have started using the mouth spray and it was very easy to use and I feel more confident that my children won’t get anything from me. I’ve used mouth sprays before, but this didn’t feel as awkward as other ones.
Coldzyme can be used by anyone from 4+ years, which is perfect in my house. It is recommended that if you feel like you are getting a cold, but it hasn’t developed yet, and you are near someone who has already got a cold (friends/family/colleagues), then spray 2 puffs (1 dose) of ColdZyme into the throat every two hours up to 6 times a day, whilst you are exposed to the cold virus.
ColdZyme is available from most pharmacies nationwide, with an RRP of £15.99 for a 20ml bottle (this can be used for about 3 colds, or about 50 doses). There is also a smaller 7ml bottle which has an RRP of £9.99.
Dr. Dawn Harper, from Channel 4, has lots of additional tips for staying one step ahead of the common cold:
- Wash your hands regularly – contrary to popular belief, most coughs and colds are spread by hand contact not by coughs and sneezes, so simply keeping your hands clean will go a long way to protecting yourself.
- Wash down surfaces and door handles – the viruses that cause colds can survive for several hours outside the human body.
- Eat a well-balanced diet rich in fruit and vegetables to keep your immune system in good shape. Vitamin C and zinc are vital for a healthy immune system. Zinc is found in red meat, beans and fortified cereals, whilst foods rich in vitamin C include fruits such as oranges and strawberries and vegetables such as peppers, kale and broccoli.
- Make sure you get into a good sleep routine. When we sleep our immune system repairs itself, so chronic sleep deprivation can make you prone to infections.
- Manage your stress levels. Try to prioritise and delegate where possible as stress can play havoc with your immune system.
- Consider using anti-viral tissues and keep them in your bag or on your desk if those around you have a cold to minimise the spread of the virus and make sure that tissues are put straight in the bin.
