Best supplements for colds and flu: Two supplements proven to boost your immunity

By | February 20, 2020

Zinc

Zinc can be helpful for colds in two ways: First, the immune system needs zinc and secondly, when taken as a lozenge, zinc works on the throat and can reduce the duration and severity of cold symptoms.

Dr Oz said: “When used to treat a cold, zinc has to act directly on your throat where it may kill viruses.

“Just swallowing or even chewing a zinc supplement defeats the purpose.

“In fact, getting too much zinc may actually reduce your immunity.”
