Natural Lime Flavour

Zinc is a micro-mineral and is naturally absorbed through foods such as meat, eggs, seafood, roasted pumpkin and peanuts. It is present in every body cell and is a component in over 200 enzymatic processes in the body.

Zinc is essential for protein synthesis and collagen formation and is believed to help accelerate healing times, reduce the length and severity of colds and help restore loss of taste. Zinc has been shown to contribute to normal macronutrient metabolism, cognitive function as well as fertility and reproduction.

Zinc deficiencies are characterized by increased susceptibility to infections, poor/slow wound healing, reduced taste and sense of smell, growth retardation, loss of appetite and skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis and eczema. A severe deficiency may cause hair loss, diarrhoea and mental disturbances.
