Zicam® ULTRA Berry Lemonade Crystals are non-drowsy, have no known drug interactions and are non-habit forming. Each box contains 18 convenient on-the-go packets and is available at drug, grocery and mass retailers nationwide.
"Everyone today is busy and has better things to do than put up with a cold longer than necessary," said M'lou Walker, CEO of Zicam®. "We wanted to introduce a cold shortening product that would be convenient for an on-the-go lifestyle. Whether you're heading out on vacation with family or accomplishing daily responsibilities, Zicam® ULTRA Berry Lemonade Crystals are designed to help you get back to what really matters."
Looking for relief from "Leisure Sickness" this Holiday Season?
According to a recent study by Wakefield Research and Zicam®, 82 percent of U.S. travelers have been hit by "leisure sickness," a phenomenon where you get sick while on vacation. As you gear up for holiday travel season, the last thing you want to deal with is a lingering cold.
Oftentimes, the trip itself can put you at higher risk for getting sick. More than half (51 percent) of those who have been "leisure sick" say they caught a cold on a trip because they were not getting enough sleep, 28 percent blame their significant other and 28 percent cite trip planning stress.
Still, one in three U.S. travelers wouldn't cancel a trip even if they had cold symptoms like a sore throat, congestion or coughing. Zicam® ULTRA Berry Lemonade Crystals are designed for easy use on the go, so you can get better, faster, no matter where you are.
