lozenge contains 15 mg of elemental zinc in the form of
zinc citrate and gluconate.
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.
As a cofactor of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide
dismutase (SOD), zinc can be considered an antioxidant
nutrient. Zinc supplementation has been shown to increase
the antioxidant activity of SOD, and provide increased
free radical protection. Zinc deficiency is associated with
increased oxidative damage. Absorption of toxic heavy
metals, especially cadmium and lead, is lower in
individuals with high zinc status compared to those with
low zinc status. The body pool of readily available zinc
appears to be small, which renders the body susceptible to
deficiency and therefore dependent on a steady dietary
supply of bioavailable zinc. While typical zinc intakes in
U.S. adults are between 10 and 15 mg per day, which
approach RDA, intakes in the elderly are often low.
Pregnant women are also at risk for zinc deficiency, since
they have a higher requirement for this trace element.
Frequently, vegetarians and chronically depressed
individuals have been found to have low zinc status.
Zinc Lozenges may be a useful nutritional adjunct for
individuals who wish to increase their intake of zinc.
