New customer survey – ColdZyme prevents colds and reduces severity and duration among cold sufferers

2017-12-27

In a recent consumer survey conducted by GfK, over 40% of customers state that they use ColdZyme preventively and if they nevertheless do catch a cold, almost 80 percent state that symptoms are milder and of shorter duration.

In November GfK conducted a consumer survey on behalf of Enzymatica to study how ColdZyme customers perceive ColdZyme’s advantages and to assess the market in general. The survey included 100 customers in the common-cold category and 100 ColdZyme users in Sweden. The findings confirmed that most ColdZyme users either take ColdZyme preventively, or for early symptoms such as sore throat or malaise. The most common reasons that consumers chose to use ColdZyme was either the beneficial effect of the product, or based on the recommendation of a pharmacist, colleague or friend. 42% of ColdZyme users state that they use ColdZyme preventively and if they catch a cold nevertheless, 79 percent state that the cold symptoms were milder or of shorter duration.

“ColdZyme users’ perceptions as reported in GfK’s survey are well in line with what we have seen in previous clinical studies, such as COLDPREV, and our observation studies among athletes and among personnel at preschools and senior housing facilities,” says Fredrik Lindberg, CEO of Enzymatica.

In general, ColdZyme users thought that the product was well tolerated and effective. The Swedish pharmacy market has about 170 products in its cold category and both ColdZyme products (7 and 20 ml) are on the top ten list. As a brand, ColdZyme is established on the top five list of best-sellers in value.
