Zinc is necessary for the proper functioning of the immune system and this essential trace element is required for the activity of over 300 enzymes and is involved in most major metabolic pathways. The immune system depends on zinc in almost every aspect. Zinc deficiency can be common in children with special needs and immune dysfunction. Zinc bolsters the immune system and makes wounds heal faster. It is integral to the growth and maintenance of body tissues and it plays a major role in the development of fetuses and the growth of children. General signs of zinc deficiency are sleep disturbances, diarrhea, poor appetite, unhealthy skin, behavioral problems, inability to heal wounds and chronic infections.
Adults: 10 drops daily into juice or water or as recommended by you healthcare practitioner.
Children: Take 5 drops daily into juice or water or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.
Zinc is best taken apart from calcium with a small amount of food. Shake well before using.
Zinc Taste Test: Put 5 drops in 2 teaspoons of purified water. Place in mouth and swish for approximately one minute before swallowing. A strong metallic taste indicates sufficient zinc status in the body.
