A product that does what it says
We bought Ease a Cold to see how it works as an alternative to the chemical based treatments.
Worked better than I expected and will be using this in the future.
This is the only flu medication I take for last 3 years. Works all the time
Has to be taken on the first sign of cold. Sometimes your symptoms could go away with the first capsule. Sometimes, need to continue for couple of days. But works like magic
Its not a magic pill but will help you
Got a cold the other week, hit it with ease a cold and 3 days in started feeling better with less harsh symptoms. Its no magic cure but it shortens the duration and for a type one diabetic like me, thats massive. A good wise investment if you ask me
- Mild side effects
Best cold relief available
At the first sign of a cold I start taking these capsules. The echinacea is great for easing the congestion and the zinc is an essential mineral which aids the immune system. The valerian in the night capsules helps to with sleeping. If I also have a headache, it’s safe to take Panadol in conjunction with these capsules. The benefits are generally felt soon after taking them.
Purchased in January 2019.

Infact made things worse
Having a sore throat. I knew I might get fever and a cold. I drank lemon honey mixed with warm water and 2 Panadol tablets. Things were getting better. I thought to be safe I’d try easeacold say & night “scientifically formulated” to help kill off the sore throat. But the first tablet I took that night. I had the worse fever ever. Had the cold fever shivers (was a hot night) and shaking like hell. Body ached. Body Temperature at 39.5 degrees. I think the capsule actually bought on the fever to it’s severity. I had to take Panadol and a cold pac...k to the forehead to make me feel better. Don’t waste your money on this. I thought I would save myself from a fever by taking it but it just bought it in faster. After 2 days still of taking it. Still have the cold. No fever due to Panadol taken every 4hours and plenty of water. Never going to trust “scientifically formulated” capsules again.
Works every time and safe with other meds!
I find these the only cold and flu tablets that are perfectly safe with other meds and if taken as soon as you get cold symptoms will shorten it to only one worse day of symptoms instead of up to seven! Highly recommend and keep them with me on holidays to stave off colds from flights and cruises etc.
To actually get rid of your cold - not to treat symptoms
1. these are herbal, they do not claim to be anything else
2. they do not claim to decongest or relieve symptoms that have already taken a stronghold
3. they DO claim to shorten the duration and severity of cold symptoms
4. If taken as instructed (they clearly state 'it is important to begin at the first sight of a cold') they do this
FINALLY FOUND THE MOST EFFECTIVE MEDICINE FOR MY COLD!!!!
I’ve been sick with runny nose, nasal congestion, sore throat and the worst of all is the bloody cough for almost 2 weeks. Took the usual cold n flu tablets & benedryl for chesty cough didn’t work for me. For the first time I took some effort to look through a range of products on the shelves and seen a few I’ve never seen nor taken before including this product, bought it and took the night capsule lastnight and boom, THE BEST SLEEP IVE EVER HAD IN A LONG TIME SINCE I HAD THE COLD. Woken up feeling so relieved not having to buy too many boxes of tissue lol
Whoever brought this medicine into existence, THANK YOU & YOU ARE THE BEST!! Now I can finally rest from all these symptoms and coughing nonstop!!
Very very happy customer
The sickness never took hold!
I began taking the day time capsules the minute I started to feel unwell. Along with resting and drinking extra fluids, I also started in on the throat lozenges. My sore throat and heavy chest never developed into anything. It remained very mild and within 4 to 5 days had completey dissipated.
I tried this product years ago when it had different packaging. I was into taking it for a cold which was in its second week. By the end of week 2 I started with hives which I thought unrelated, I then blew up like the Goodyear blimp. My body covered in reddish purple blotches. Trip to hospital for adrenaline which sorted the swelling in a couple of days. I’ve never used them again and have never had another allergic episode lIke it again. Ps the reason I looked up this review is because I have discovered I have an intolerance to garlic (severe if raw) and I’m trying to connect some dots...
This is a fake cold/flu relief product
I wondered why neither the day nor night capsules did a single thing and then checked the actual ingredients. The day capsules contain echinacea and zinc, neither of which have any valid evidence of assisting symptoms or shortening the duration of a cold. In fact I see the company were forced to remove this claim from their web site because it is patently false.
The night capsule contains 1 gram of valerian, which will not be enough to have any effect on an adult. Neither the day nor the night capsule contain any ingredient which could possi...ble soothe a throat, ease a cough, provide pain relief for a headache, or dry out the sinuses to assist breathing, all symptoms which it claims to help. I took 2 night capsules as directed on the packet and woke at 1 am with severe chest pain, and couldn't get back to bed until 4.30 am. Quite frankly, to claim that this product has any benefit whatsoever for people who need relief from cold symptoms is plain fraudulent. The remainder of this product is going back to Coles and I'll be lodging a formal complaint with them and also with consumer affairs.
Questions & Answers
Does these have an anti-inflammatory in them
There are a few different types. The ones I buy are Cold & Congestion day & night and the ingredients are Echinacea, zinc and valerian in the night tabs. These really do seems to shorten the length of a cold and do stop a runny nose. They’re sold in most supermarkets so you could check them out for anti-inflammatories.
To be taken at first sign of a cold not few days later! Zinc is excellent for colds however any codral medication or any cold meds with codeine or sleeping ingredients, check with your doctors first! Because pharmacists will say anything to sell! Especially if you have blood pressure and diabetes be careful guys xx
