An Experience with Zinc for Cold & Flu

written on October 4, 2021 

My effectiveness rating:
I found it to be very effective.

My experience:

What works for me is to take a Vitamin C plus zinc supplement if I feel something coming on. Your body actually uses zinc to make white blood cells and there’s evidence that it can shorten some illnesses. But it’s not something that’s helpful to take every day. You only need extra zinc when your body is needing to make extra white blood cells.
