Need an easy and convenient way to maintain healthy levels of zinc? Try Nutri West's Zinc Lozenges‚ a hassle-free and tasty way of getting the zinc your body needs.
Zinc is considered an essential trace element‚ meaning our bodies need it to maintain life but it must be acquired through our diet. However‚ certain health conditions‚ poor diet‚ and malabsorption may cause a deficiency of zinc. Symptoms of zinc deficiencies include: diarrhea‚ slow wound healing‚ and possibly more. Maintaining normal zinc levels is key.
The zinc in Nutri West's Zinc Lozenges may be essential in helping to maintain ocular and prostate health. This notion is based off the fact that zinc is found in the highest concentrations in the eye and prostate.
Additionally‚ evidence and research has shown that zinc lozenges may decrease the duration cold symptoms. This seems to be the result of zinc's possible immune system boosting benefits. These potential benefits have been suggested based on the fact that zinc deficiencies seem to coincide with lowered immunity.
Other zinc uses include the metabolism of RNA and DNA‚ signal transduction‚ gene expression‚ and more.
Certain athletes have also been known for using zinc as a possible performance booster.
As a zinc lozenge‚ this vital nutrient is absorbed through the capillaries and lining of the mouth‚ potentially being administered directly into the blood stream. These lozenges don't only feature zinc for health and wellness‚ but a refreshing spearmint taste.
So if you feel like you might need a zinc boost‚ consult your healthcare practitioner to see if zinc lozenges are right for you.

High doses of zinc can interfere with immune function. Shils and Young report the level of zinc that interferes with copper absorption (associated with copper deficiency and anemia) is a long-term‚ chronic ingestion of 150 mg/day (Shils M and Young V. eds. Modern Nutrition in Health and Disease. 1988 7th ed. Lea and Febiger‚ Philadelphia‚ Pa.). Michael Murray advises against a daily intake greater than 150 mg for more than a week‚ but stresses that zinc supplementation‚ particularly lozenges‚ can effectively enhance the immune system.
