Most colds are caused by a type of virus called rhinovirus. Zinc counteracts this virus from spreading and causing a painful sore throat by stopping mucus from accumulating. I tried this a few times when I was sick and it really helped. There are so many products out there, so it might be worth doing your research or asking your local pharmacists or herbal remedy practitioner to help you choose the right product to help you get rid of your sore throat.

What You'll Need

  • Zinc tablets

What You'll Do

  • Obtain zinc tablets from a pharmacy or herbal store and follow the instructions.
  • Usually it requires you to suck on one tablet or lozenge every two hours.

Tips & Warnings

  • There is a limit to how many you can ingest in 24 hours and how often you can ingest a zinc tablet. Be sure to read the instructions or ask your doctor.
