Note that Zincum Gluconicum has been found to be very effective against the common cold but might not do much for the flu. Its effectiveness has been reported in the prestigious QJM. The study can be found on, a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. The abstract can be found at the NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information) web site:
