Common cold is usually caused by sudden changes in temperature or unexpected changes in the weather. It is raining and suddenly the rain stops and there is a splendid sun. Or you are in a hot environment and without proper protection unexpectedly switches to a cold environment

These sudden changes wreak havoc on your health and you go to pharmacy medicines or prepare an infusion of ginger, honey, and lemon or something similar to relieve your cold.

But recent studies point to a mineral ingredient that can effectively help you fight your common cold or your flu. This mineral element is zinc.

What is zinc?

Classified as an essential trace element, zinc is a mineral, essential for the functioning of the organism, and is important, even in small quantities. A number of enzymes are catalyzed by zinc and on the other hand, helps the cells of DNA and the synthesis of proteins to strengthen the immune system.

Like other 15 essential minerals, zinc is not made by the body and should be obtained from dietary sources or dietary supplements. Zinc is the first element of the periodic table, of group 12 and its symbol is Zn and its atomic number 30.

Why is zinc effective in combating common cold?

The University of Helsinki carried out a study on a group of people with a common cold. The group was divided into two parts, one group was administered zinc tablets and the other group was zinc-free safe tablets. The result was revealed, the group treated with zinc improved remarkably in a short time of their cold problem, by up to 40%.

The best results were most effective in combating the common cold when zinc was applied within 24 hours of the onset of the first symptoms of the cold.

How does zinc work against the common cold?

According to various studies, the cold originates from rhinovirus and zinc has the ability to prevent the multiplication of the virus in the body and on the other hand prevents the rhinovirus from staying in the membranes of the nose and throat.

How much zinc is needed to be effective against the common cold?

Many foods are high in zinc, such as flax seeds, spinach, pumpkin seeds, beans, etc. But you would have to consume large amounts daily to effectively combat a cold.

The most appropriate solution is to resort to a supplement of 80 milligrams zinc, although the highest daily intake of zinc is 40 ml, 80 ml, seems to be a safe amount that does not harm the immune system.

Regular consumption of 8 milligrams daily throughout the year can be a sensible measure to reduce the risk of colds.

Side effects

Side effects may occur when consuming high amounts of zinc, such as:

-bad taste in the mouth, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps, etc.
