Strong results from preventive use of ColdZyme against common cold virus

Enzymatica is now disclosing a report based on four user surveys from the years 2015 to 2019 concerning use of ColdZyme to prevent common colds. Almost half of the respondents answered that use of ColdZyme before common cold symptoms arise results in fewer colds. Since the respondents began using ColdZyme preventively almost 3 of 4 felt that their colds were milder, with fewer sick days as a result.

Enzymatica commissioned the market research company Gfk/IPSOS to compile four previous user surveys from 2015 to 2019 regarding use of ColdZyme. A total of 805 individuals were included in the four surveys on which the report is based, 405 of whom were users of other products in the common cold category and 400 were ColdZyme users. The analysis focused specifically on the experience of the 146 respondents who used ColdZyme preventively, before experiencing any common cold symptoms, as well as outcomes if they did come down with a common cold.

Almost half (48%) of respondents answered that use of ColdZyme before cold symptoms arise, or upon potential exposure to a cold virus, results in fewer episodes of common colds. Among respondents who primarily used ColdZyme preventively, almost 3 of 4 (72%) estimated that their colds were less severe, defined as milder or with fewer days with common cold symptoms. The respondents felt that ColdZyme is most effective against the symptoms sore throat and irritated throat. They experienced fewer side effects with ColdZyme than with other self-care products and drugs used to alleviate, treat or prevent common cold symptoms.

The majority of the users are satisfied with ColdZyme and the repurchase rate is high, since 92% intend to buy ColdZyme again within the next 12 months.

“The report convincingly shows that customers experience that use of ColdZyme leads to fewer and milder colds without increased side effects compared with other self-care products,” says Fredrik Lindberg, CEO of Enzymatica.
