This cold and flu season, keep your medicine "Made in America"
As we reach the cold, dark days of winter, and suffer from a myriad of sniffles, sneezes, and coughs, it's good to know that there are reliable, American-made remedies for our maladies.
Cold-Eeze Zinc Lozenges are proudly Made in USA (in Doylestown, PA), are pharmacist recommended, and have been "clinically proven to shorten the duration of the common cold by nearly half."
The NeilMed Neti Pot Sinus Rinse–manufactured in Santa Rosa, CA–"provides natural relief from allergies, the common cold or flu, and other chronic sinus and nasal problems and obviates the need for surgeries and prescription medications in more than 50% of cases."
Thankfully, Cold-Eeze and NeilMed continue to manufacture their products in the U.S.
Unfortunately, some avenues of cold and flu relief are closed to U.S. consumers due to a decline in the nation's manufacturing capacity. As the New York Times reported in 2009, the U.S. faced a severe shortage of flu vaccines because "vaccine companies started abandoning the American market."
Hopefully more medical and pharmaceutical companies will follow the lead of Cold-Eeze and NeilMed by manufacturing safely in the U.S.
