ColdZyme® is a mouth spray that treats and alleviates common cold. ColdZyme® is unique as it works immediately to create a protective barrier between you and the cause of the cold, the actual common cold viruses.
ColdZyme® has a triple action:
ColdZyme® can be used before and during infection by adults and children from 4 years.
ColdZyme® is a CE-marked medical device,
ColdZyme® is unique because it acts against the cause of the cold, the cold virus itself. ColdZyme® is easy to use and acts immediately by forming a protective barrier in the oral cavity and throat.
The barrier works by capturing cold viruses and blocking the virus' ability to infect cells so that the body can get rid of the virus naturally. ColdZyme® protects against cold viruses, relieves cold symptoms and can shorten the course of the disease when used at the early stages of a cold. ColdZyme® is available in 20ml and 7ml packs.
Start using ColdZyme® as soon as possible after the symptoms of common cold appear or if you are at risk of possible exposure to common cold viruses.
Continue to use ColdZyme® until the symptoms are relieved.
The above symptoms are examples of first signs of a common cold

In the 1970s, the Icelandic researcher Professor Jon Bragi Bjarnason noticed that staff in the fish cleaning company had unusually whole and soft hands.
Given that they cleaned fish, their hands should rather have been cracked and sore. Was there anything in the fish that seemed protective?
The research group was able to show that in some cold-adapted marine organisms such as cod there is an enzyme with good protective barrier properties. The development work eventually led to a world patent for the marine enzyme cold-adapted trypsin. The enzyme is extracted as a by-product in the preparation of cod and therefore does not burden the marine ecosystem.
Respiratory viral infections, also known as the common cold, are the most common infections in humans. Several viruses have been associated with the common cold, of which rhinovirus is the most common.1
The incubation period of an infectious disease is the time between infection and symptom onset. The incubation period varies depending on the type of virus, ranging form half a day to over a week for some viruses.2
Common symptoms include a runny or stuffy nose and sore throat. Symptoms may also include a mild cough and headache with fever. An ordinary cold usually lasts for fewer than ten days and, on average, people have two to five colds per year.3
Children are the group who catch colds most often – 7 to 10 colds per year3 – but this frequency declines with age.

Recommendations to reduce the risk of infection from common cold and other respiratory viruses:
There are a range of common misconceptions about catching cold and how to avoid them, find out which of these myths might have some truth behind them.
Cold and flu are the same
Both diseases are caused by different pathogens. While influenza viruses are responsible for a flu outbreak, the common cold can be triggered by over 200 different viruses.
Colds usually start gradually, whereas flu comes on suddenly and often involves a fever and muscle aches and pains.
Wet hair can cause a cold
Wet hair doesn’t cause a cold, it is caused by infection from common cold viruses. However, if the immune system is already weak, becoming very cold can further weaken it. Wet hair in cold conditions can lead to a drop in body temperature which can have a negative effect on a weakened immune system, so it is best to avoid going into the cold with wet hair.
When coughing cover your mouth
Many people still consider it polite to hold their hand over their mouth when coughing. Anyone who coughs into their hand transmits an enormous number of viruses onto the palm of the hand. If they then touch objects, they increase the risk of infection for others immensely. So the advice is now to cough into the crook of the arm.
Vitamin C can cure a cold
It appears that daily vitamin C has no real impact on catching a cold, although it may have a small positive effect on the duration of a cold, but only if it is taken as part of a daily routine. High doses of vitamin C once a cold has started have shown no consistent effect on duration or severity of common cold.
