    Does it?

    Also: if its primary function is to boost the immune system, does it work on pretty much any virus (ex. stomach virus)? Does it work on non-viral illness that the immune system can do something about?

    From the website: "In accordance with U.S. regulations, this product is not intended to treat, cure or prevent upper respiratory infections due to cold or influenza-like viruses."

    And no, there is no current cure for the common cold, gastroenteritis or influenza... There are many strains of these viruses and aside from a vaccine that could possibly prevent your body from contracting the illnesses, there is nothing else you can do but wash your hands often, stay away from sick people and hope for the best.

    When someone finds a cure for the common cold and/or influenza, he or she will win a Nobel Prize.

    I don't know anything about Cold FX but I have tried using zinc gluconate and I felt that my symptoms cleared up faster than usual. Your results may differ. The theory, which I have not tried to validate, is that cold viruses carry a negative charge and zinc ions are of course positive, so they combine and you piss them out together.

    Based on a study, it is purported that the ions contained in zinc lozenges can possibly prevent the replication of the virus while it resides in the throat. As far as I know, it's ok to take some zinc, but so far, studies are not sure how much is needed to actually inhibit the virus. In the U.S., the FDA has issued a warning that nasal sprays containing zinc can cause loss of sense of smell, often permanently.

    I believe Cold-FX derives its main ingredient from Ginseng...
