The information about ColdZyme Mouth Spray says it ‘contains a unique marine enzyme that helps build a protective barrier on the mucous membranes in your throat and makes it harder for the cold virus to cause illness. ColdZyme Mouth Spray, reduces the risk of catching cold and may help to shorten the duration of illness if initiated at an early stage of the infection.’
Now anything that can reduce the annual March misery of colds for me has got to be worth a try, as I always seem to fall prey to an almighty cold sometime around Easter. Fortunately, the spray arrived a few days before I was facing a long week at work with more evening meetings than normal so I couldn’t really afford to feel under the weather. Added to that, my family have been dragging around cold symptoms for a month and don’t seem to have been quite able to shake it off so everything seemed ideal for a test run.
The spray is easy to use and comes with an instruction sheet explaining how the spray creates a protective layer on your throat which can help to stop a cold really taking hold. For some reason I was expecting it to taste a bit bitter, but it’s a reasonably pleasant slightly sweet tasting flavour which doesn’t last long.
I’ve used the spray for 4 days now and the threatened cold hasn’t materialised which has been great relief (and also for my work colleagues who haven’t had to suffer me sniffling in the office), I’d definitely buy this product again and will more likely than not keep one in my medicine cabinet for cold and flu season.
At around £10-£16 depending on where you buy it and what size, this product does represent good value if you are a busy parent who can’t afford to be laid low by a cold bug.
RRP: £9.99 (7ml), £15.99 (20ml)
