Very Effective Zinc Chelate
Posted by RubiesHealth on Apr 17, 2013
This is a high efficacy product. Whenever my boys take too long to heal from flu, I will add a sprinkle of this to their first drink in the morning. Zinc boosts immunity and is especially helpful for teenagers experiencing growth spurts and men's libido during stressful period. However I am careful with zinc dosage because over-dosing or prolong use can depress immunity. So for my teenage boys, 30mg shared between the two works just fine. I used to take this for slow wound-healing and white-spots on my nails. Zinc also alleviate pink patches beside the nose and pigmentatiin spots.
Помощь при простуде///////////////Help with colds

Отлично помогает при простуде, при боли в горле. А лично я вообще употребляю цинк почти каждый день для укрепления иммунитета, здоровья кожи и серда. Нравится чередовать цинк в капсулах и леденцах! Когда болею - леденцы поднимают настроение и помогают выздоровлению) (хотя когда я в последний раз болела и не помню.....) Кстати, чтобы не тошнило - используйте его ПОСЛЕ еды!///////////////////////Excellent helps with colds, with sore throat. And personally, I do drink zinc almost every day to strengthen the immune system, healthy skin and hearts. Like alternate zinc capsules and candy! When sick - candy elevate mood and help recovery) (although when I was sick for the last time and I do not remember .....) By the way, not to feel sick - use it after eating!

if you can't afford food based minerals chelate is the way to go as it is about 4 times more absorbed than a basic zinc oxide,optizinc is also good.zinc is good for the flu in doses of around 75mg a day with vitamin c,glutamine,achenicea and elderberry,cuts down illness time in half,but don't forget to take copper in descent amount afterwards or in between as zinc & copper creates deficiency of one another when we got excess of one of them....you are welcome to rate & read my other reviews

Well priced and tolerated product. I find taking at night, in addition to magnesium citrate improves sleep. Zinc is also vital for immunity. I believe a lot of people are deficient due to a lack of zinc in the diet plus consumption of high copper foods such as nuts and chocolate and copper plumbing (copper is a zinc antagonist).
Low dose, probably safe for daily use.

I like zinc because it always seems to cure a sore throat and it seems to help with depression. I was taking 100-125mg pills but after doing some online reading I got concerned with safety. So I found this low dose and now I take just 1 every day. I am not sure if it's as effective as a higher dose but I don't want to overdose on it. When I do get a sore throat, I take 2-3 pills a day instead of just one, but I don't do that on a continual basis. The fact that the zinc is chelated is supposed to be good for absorption. I have recommended zinc to a relative for an ear/throat infection and it's also helped her a lot. It seems that 75mg-125mg is the daily dose for treating infections, but perhaps the lower dose is good for every day use. I also had a psychiatrist who thought I could benefit from a zinc/copper supplement. This one doesn't have any copper in it so I may switch sometime but for now I'm sure happy with this price!
