Turmeric - Manual

Zinc works by inhibiting viral replication. Slowing the time it takes for the virus to make copies of itself and infect other cells allows one's adaptive immune system to recognize and make antibodies to the virus. Lozenges work better than swallowed tablets because the zinc is delivered closest to the site of initial infection, the nose, sinuses and eyes. Once the virus has established itself in the upper respiratory tract, zinc loses a significant percentage of its effectiveness. It still might help somewhat, but by then the immune system needs a week or more to eliminate the virus, not a day or two as when the zinc is delivered at the onset of symptoms. Zinc gluconate offers the best bioavailability, but other organic/chelated zinc formulations such as zinc citrate may be effective.
