Zinc is an essential trace element involved in most major metabolic pathways. General signs of human zinc deficiency indicate that zinc has important functions in maintaining immune function, reproduction, healthy skin, and growth.† Numerous studies support the fundamental role of zinc in normal immune response in humans.† Immune cells must be able to rapidly divide in order to respond to daily challenges. Like all rapidly dividing cells, immune cells depend on adequate amounts of dietary zinc.
Suggested Usage: One capsule daily, with food, or as directed by a healthcare professional.
Side Effects: Orally, zinc may cause nausea, vomiting, and a metallic taste in the mouth. There is a concern that high daily doses above the tolerable upper intake level (UL) of 40mg per day might increase the risk of copper deficiency.
