Re: The Common Cold and Cyclists...

Cure for the common cold? Yeah, I got one. Zinc. Not just any old zinc, taken any old way, but if you do it right, and you catch the cold in the first couple of hours - you can kill it outright. If you catch it within the first 24 hours, you can cut the severity to about a quarter of the full-blown cold - and it will only last 3-4 days, instead of 7-10. If you wait longer than the first 24, it will cut the severity in about half, and a day or two less suffering.
I have zinc pills that I take (together with vitamin C) when I feel a cold coming up.
Now I finally know why zinc! :D

Or do they not do anything as pills?
