Caution: Gastrointestinal distress has been reported at doses of 50 to 150 mg/day of supplemental zinc. Do not exceed five lozenges daily for more than a week. Long-term use of supplemental zinc from 100 to 150 mg/day can inhibit the absorption and availability of iron and copper. Chronic ingestion of more than 300 mg of elemental zinc daily may be immunosuppressive.51 Supplemental zinc can inhibit the absorption and availability of iron and copper. If more than 50 mg of supplemental zinc is taken daily, 2 mg of supplemental copper should also be taken to prevent deficiency. Calcium in combination with phytic acid reduces zinc absorption. Chronic ingestion of more than 300 mg of zinc daily may be toxic. Zinc should not be used in mega-amounts. A study showed that if 300 mg per day were ingested, white cell function of the immune system could be impaired.132 Also, copper should be supplemented while using doses of zinc over the recommended intakes.133

Zinc is a mineral that stimulates the activity of approximately 300 enzymes, which are substances that promote biochemical reactions in your body. These reactions are essential for the formation of superoxide dismutase, one of the body’s most important free radical scavengers. Zinc also promotes immune function, taste sensitivity, protein and DNA synthesis, insulin production, reproductive organ development and sperm motility. Zinc also supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence.

Maintaining adequate levels of zinc is equally important to aging adults. As people grow older, their immune function declines, partly due to the decreasing size and function of the thymus gland. Evidence suggests that zinc may help to maintain healthy function of the thymus gland in elderly people. Scientists have also found evidence that a zinc deficiency in elderly adults may contribute to impaired immune function with aging, or immunosenescence. These findings suggest that zinc plays a critical role in supporting healthy immune function with age.

Zinc Lozenges provide premium-grade zinc as gluconate and oxide in a pleasant citrus-orange naturally flavored tablet.
