Product Overview


  • Natural Formulas
  • For Evaluation or Supplementation
  • Dietary Supplement

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.


Caution: Keep out of the reach of children.

Storage: Refrigerate after opening.

Surprisingly, this works!

Posted by ReaCovery on Nov 19, 2015 | Verified Purchase

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.

Thanks for your feedback!

Fascinating stuff

Posted by Krisinsight on Apr 01, 2011 | Verified Purchase

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.
