    Comments about GNC Ultra Zinc Lozenges, 48 ea:

    Since I have been using zinc lozenges (15+ years), I have had only ONE "common cold," no other upper respiratory infections, and no sore throats. Before that, I averaged one head cold per year and occasionally had a sore throat, a chest cold, or a case of flu. In addition to the key ingredient Zinc, this brand includes 333% daily value of Vitamin C and the Echinacea herb, both of which are recommended to fight colds, as well as antioxidant Vitamin A and Copper. I now use the lozenges daily, as a supplement, rather than only when I feel a cold coming on, so I never get even the slightest scratchy throat. GNC Ultra Zinc is the best-tasting lozenge I've tried - a natural orange treat! Let it dissolve in the mouth, don't chew - the virus-blocking Zinc is thereby absorbed into nasal passages where it does its job. I find it assists with keeping my sinuses clear of stuffiness, as well, even in allergy season. I also use a saline nasal spray when needed for a drippy nose, and between the two products, eliminate the need for antihistamines for nasal allergy symptoms.

        Comments about GNC Ultra Zinc Lozenges, 48 ea:

        These are one of my all-time favorite cold remedies because they actually work and they taste great (unlike many other zinc lozenges). You need to take them as soon as you feel a sore throat coming on; they're most effective if you act quickly. You also need to let them completely dissolve on your tongue. I also double-up on these (meaning that I suck on one, then another immediately after) and I do six to eight tablets in a day. 99% of the time, my sore throat is gone that same day. I usually do two more the following day just to be sure it's gone. If I have a runny nose or congestion in addition to a sore throat, I usually take 2-3 doses of Airborne as well on the first day and 1-2 doses of Airborne the following day. This combination usually either prevents a cold entirely, or gets rid of it in a day and keeps the symptoms very mild. Since I've been doing this for the last decade, I think I've had two colds, and one sore throat.

            Comments about GNC Ultra Zinc Lozenges, 48 ea:

            My husband and I both use this at the first slight sign of an oncoming cold and find it effective in limiting the symptoms. I've tried other zinc lozenges that tasted so awful it was a chore to use them. These taste fine, kind of tangy, and they dissolve relatively quickly, not so much like a sucking candy as others I've tried.
            I recommend these.

              At the onset of a cold (i.e. throat beginning to get sore or itchy), take the lozenges. If you catch it at this stage, you can prevent cold or flu altogether, or at least really shorten it. Take as part of a preventive regimen with ginger tea and honey, lemon.
