When a warrior mama needs to reach for her immune support, zinc is top of the list. Zinc Lozenges supply bioavailable zinc, flavoured with natural orange extracts. Each tablet contains 10 mg of elemental zinc in the form of zinc citrate, and our kids just love it! It's chewable and easily breaks down in just a few bites, and simple to snap into two, for a half dose.
Zinc is an essential trace element involved in most major metabolic pathways and has important functions in maintaining immune function, healthy skin, and tissue formation. Numerous studies support the fundamental role of zinc in normal immune response in humans. Immune cells must be able to rapidly divide in order to respond to daily challenges. Like all rapidly dividing cells, immune cells depend on adequate amounts of dietary zinc.
Skin support: Zinc is required to maintain healthy skin as a component of matrix metalloproteinases. These enzymes break down matrix proteins, including collagen and elastin, which helps in skin remodelling and repair.
