Free zinc ions can control the replication of many viruses. When many viruses infect cells, they insert a genetic code and an enzyme called replicate to replicate the virus. Zinc can block the replicate, thereby preventing the virus from replicating or spreading. This is one of the reasons why zinc is often recommended to relieve colds.
