Source Naturals Wellness Zinc Lozenges are specially formulated to contain the most active forms of zinc. Zinc is a trace element that plays a significant role in the human body. It is involved in normal cell growth and repair, helps support the body's natural defenses, and is essential to many enzyme systems and for normal functioning of the immune system.*
Zinc can have an unpleasant metallic taste. Source Naturals Wellness Zinc Lozenges have a pleasant peach-raspberry flavor that masks the taste of the natural zinc. Other formulas may contain citric acid or mannitol-sorbitol sweetener mixtures, and as a result do not work nearly as well. That is because these compounds bind free zinc ions so tightly that very little of it is released into the oral cavity.*
Source Naturals Wellness Zinc Lozenges feature zinc in the form of gluconate, the most efficient, non-binding form. It also includes ascorbate. This formula allows for up to 90 percent of free-form zinc ions from gluconate to be released in the mouth and throat. It is then available for action within the bloodstream.*
Suggested Use: 1 lozenge every two hours as needed. For optimal results, dissolve completely in mouth, allowing prolonged contact in throat area. Avoid taking on an empty stomach or with citrus juices. Do not exceed 6 servings in a 24-hour period. Do not use for more than 3 days at a time. Store in a cool, dry place.
