Dr Oz: How Zinc Cuts a Cold in Half
Dr. Oz says a new study shows that Zinc can be beneficial at fighting a cold, but is it really the best option? He explains that when a rhino virus gets into your body and starts to spread, it can wreak havoc while making you sick and causing you to cough and sneeze and feel just plain awful.

Dr. Oz says zinc literally forces the virus out of your body to help you feel better, but how much should you take to get the most benefit?
