Zinc—it's one of the abundant elements in the human body, second only to iron. We find it in our diets in meat, fish, nuts, whole grains and legumes. It stimulates enzymatic activity; is essential to immune defense functions; and plays a role in cell division, which makes it vital for growth and development. Zinc is as biologically versatile and important to human health as just about any other nutrient you can name. And when it comes to winter wellness, zinc defends like no other.
Unlike other dietary supplements that can be equally effective in various forms, zinc is most effective for immune support when taken as zinc acetate in the form of an oral-dissolving lozenge. Comparisons have found up to 50% better results with zinc acetate versus other zinc salts. It is believed that this is due to the fact that acetate does not bind chemically to zinc ions, allowing for more free ions to be released.
Swanson Premium Advanced Zinc Acetate Lozenges are naturally flavored, sugar free, and guaranteed to deliver 18.75 mg of elemental zinc for effective immune support at an affordable price.
Other ingredients: Xylitol, mannitol, microcrystalline cellulose (plant fiber), natural orange flavor, hydroxypropyl cellulose, croscarmellose sodium, crospovidone, citric acid, calcium palmitate, stevia extract (stevia rebaudiana) (leaf), starch, cellulose gum (carboxymethyl cellulose), silica.
Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, completely dissolve in mouth one lozenge every two hours, not to exceed 2 lozenges per day. Do not use for more than three consecutive days. Do not chew or swallow lozenge. May cause nausea if taken on an empty stomach.
WARNING: Do not take this product if you are pregnant or nursing. Consult your healthcare provider before use if you are taking any prescription medications or have a medical condition. Do not exceed recommended dosage. Not recommended for long-term use.
CAUTION: Supplemental zinc can inhibit the absorption and availability of copper. If more than 50 mg of supplemental zinc is taken daily on an ongoing basis, 2 mg of supplemental copper should also be taken to prevent copper deficiency. Repeated ingestion of more than 100 mg of zinc daily may be immunosuppressive for some aspects of T-cell and NK cell function.
