  • Natural Formulas
  • For Evaluation or Supplementation

Zinc Status may provide a simple method for evaluating zinc status. After placing 10 ml of Zinc Status in the mouth, a lack of taste or a delayed taste perception suggests a possible zinc insufficiency. An immediate taste perception suggests zinc status may be adequate. Zinc Status may also be taken as a supplement.

Suggested Use

Hold 10 ml (equivalent to two teaspoons) in the mouth for at least 10 seconds. Liquid can be swallowed after tasting. As a dietary supplement, take two servings two times daily.

Other Ingredients

Distilled water.

This product is produced in a facility that produces products containing soy, fish, nuts, tree nuts, dairy, and crustacean shellfish.

Surprisingly, this works!

Posted by ReaCovery on Nov 19, 2015

At first, I wasn't sure this worked because everyone I gave it to said it tasted like water, then a few weeks after taking zinc, it still tasted like water. So I came to the conclusion it was probably just a gimmick to get people to pay a lot of money for a little bottle of plain water. But after about 6 months of taking supplemental zinc every day, this stuff does have a nasty taste. So I guess it takes a while to build your zinc levels up if you are deficient and its probably true that most people are deficient.

Fascinating stuff

Posted by Krisinsight on Apr 01, 2011

I have started taking zinc thanks to Zinc Status. When I first used it I tasted nothing, so I will take zinc for a few weeks and try it again. One interesting note is Krispin Sullivan recommends this product but not as a supplement only as a way to test for zinc deficiency.

Great way to test your zinc

Posted by Reviewer2809025 on Jul 24, 2010

My family has been using this to test our zinc for a couple years. It works great and has been a big help in getting my zinc levels up. This product was recommended by the nutritionist we work with.
