Does Zicam really work

In 2009 Zicam swabs and spray were pulled from the market because of troubling irreversible side effects. The active ingredient was the cause and the new stuff does not have Zinc in it because of this.

Here is more information on that recall and the side effects:

Airborne is another scam product that was pulled from shelves by the FDA and Justice department for making unproven medical claims. It has since been sold to another company who is selling it as a vitamin supplement

Zicam has NO medically or scientifically proven benefits at all.

The Justice Department took them to court, won and forced them to repackage their products and to stop making medical claims.

Zicam pretty much does exactly what it says it will. It helps to get rid of your cold faster. The reason that it is able to do this is because of its high levels of zinc. Zinc is known to ward off colds and sickness, so Zicam helps you to relieve cold symptoms, therefore helping to get rid of them faster. Just try staying away from their nasal spray, because there have been some complaints about it.
