COMMON COLD -

The cold is quite common. It is a respiratory infection that is caused by anyone of hundreds of viruses. Colds occur more often in winter. Nearly everyone catches colds but some catch colds more often and others may tend to stay sick for a long time.

It's been reported often that conventional medicine can neither cure or prevent a cold and none of the over-the-counter treatments have been found to shorten the duration of a cold or even provide significant relief.

On the other hand some natural remedies are effective in speeding recovery and reducing discomfort.
Chelated Zinc (From Zinc Gluconate) - 50 mg
Zinc is present in nearly all body tissues, especially in the thyroid, pancreas and reproductive organs. This mineral is involved in the body's enzymatic reactions, the synthesis of proteins and in carbohydrate metabolism. Because zinc is essential to cell formation, it is needed for healing and maintaining healthy tissues. Some evidence has shown this supplement helps to reduce the duration of colds.

For daily supplementation, each easy-to-take tablet supplies 50 mg of essential zinc, in easy-to-digest, highly absorbable chelated form.

Ginseng May Reduce the Duration and Severity of Colds
Here's Some Helpful Information for You . . .

Ginseng, long recommended  as a treatment for colds by proponents of herbal medicine, has now gained support in a recent controlled scientific experiment. Canadian researchers tested North American Ginseng extract against a placebo and found that it had a significant effect in reducing the number and intensity of colds.

The study, published in the October 25 issue of the Canadian Journal of Medicine, tested 323 subjects. Volunteers were randomly assigned either to a group that took 200 milligram tablets of North American Ginseng extract or to a group that took identical tablets of rice powder (placebo). An independent company randomly assigned the subjects, and neither the researchers nor the volunteers knew which pills were given to which participants.

The subjects were asked to note their symptoms - runny nose, fever, headache, sore throat, congestion, etc. and to rank them on a scale from 0 (no symptom) to 3 (severe symptom). The participants also kept logs of their symptoms, and the researchers called each volunteer once a month in the four month study to make sure that they were taking their medicine.

At the end of two months, the subjects returned any unused medicine, and they were given a second bottle of pills. They then returned the unused amounts from those bottles at the end of the study, which was conducted in 2003-2004.

Of those in the placebo group, 23 reported two or more colds over the winter. Ten percent of the Ginseng group had two or more. When the people in the Ginseng group did have colds, their symptoms were milder, based on the 0 to 3 rankings, and they had one-third fewer days with less severe symptoms than those taking the placebo pill.

The average duration of each cold was also lower in the Ginseng group, 8 days compared with 11 days for the placebo group. On every measure, the people taking the Ginseng did better than those on the placebo.

The authors said the results with Ginseng were slightly better than those reported with common antiviral drugs. North American Ginseng extract, they concluded, "appears to be an attractive natural prophylatic treatment for upper respiratory tract infections."...Novemer 12, 2005

Ginger Root - Nature's Wonderful Herbal Remedy
Here's Up-To-Date Research Information for your Good Health . . .

Ginger is a favorite herb that is used for medicinal purposes for centuries. Next time you feel nauseous, sluggish or have an upset stomach with painful cramps, try taking ginger root capsules.

How does Ginger Root Work? Ginger has been used in ancient civilization including India, China, Greece and Rome, both as a food spice and versatile medicinal aid. Capsules, hot teas, and crystallized ginger are used to deliver a ginger-packed dose that can alleviate nausea, dizziness, inflammation, muscle aches, allergy symptoms and even flatulence.

Ginger is a natural, effective treatment for easing digestive upsets. Once in the digestive tract, it has the ability to increase digestive fluid and neutralize acids, which cancontribute to upset stomach. Ginger is a natural alternative to anti-nausea drugs and may provide an alternative solution for people seeking to eliminate side effects, such as exhaustion, which usually accompanies conventional anti-nausea medications. Ginger can also be used to relieve excessive flatulence and its associated symptoms.

Reducing nausea and dizziness is especially helpful for treating seasickness, morning sickness, post operative nausea, nausea from chemotherapy treatments, and general digestive complaints. Two separate studies showed a positive correlation between ginger and decreased nausea. One study was conducted using sailors, split into two groups. The first group was instructed to take 1 gram of powdered ginger per day, the the 2nd group took a placebo. The group taking the ginger had a significantly decrease occurrence of nausea and cold sweats, which a classic symptoms of seasickness. A second study followed women who were undergoing surgery. They were also instructed to take 1 gram of ginger, resulting in a decrease in post surgery nausea and vomiting.

Ginger also has anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving abilities, which is important to those suffering from arthritis which is often a result of severe inflammation of the joints. Allergy suffers and those dealing with a cold may also find relief in using ginger, as it calms the inflammation associated with these conditions, thus reducing the duration of the symptoms. Muscle aches and chronic pain can also be diminished with the use of ginger.

General recommendations given for upsets, arthritis and chronic pain or muscle aches is to take at least 200 mg in capsule form, 1 - 2 grams of fresh powdered ginger or a fresh 1/2 inch slice of raw ginger root.

Ginger can also be used in tea form with the same therapeutic results. You can make your own tea by opening 1 or 2 Ginger capsules, mix the finely-milled powder into hot water. If you're able to obtain Ginger root at your local grocery store, steep freshly grated raw Ginger root in hot water. Ginger ale is also availabe at most grocery stores, but make sure you buy a natural ginger ale vs. commerrcial ginger sodas, which don't contain a significant amount of the herb. Natural ginger ales provide about 1 gram of ginger per 8 oz. serving....December 9, 2005

Nutrient deficiencies can negatively affect any lifestyle, but athletes and those whose lives include strenous physical activity are most sensitive to a lack of proper nutrition. One of the most essential of all nutrients is Zinc, which is vital to immune system function, wound healing and healthy cell growth.

A new study finds that active individuals with diets low in Zinc (typically found in meats, eggs, seafood, cheese, beans, fortified cereals, nuts and wheat germ) may be putting themselves at risk for unhealthy cardiovascular performance. According to researchers at the U. S. Department of Agriculture, healthy adult males with low Zinc intake were found to perform much more poorly on tests of cardiovascular endurance than men who received the proper amounts of Zinc....August 3, 2005
