Minerals play many key roles in the body and are imperative for a healthful lifestyle. Zinc, an essential trace mineral, is important for proper immune function, growth, wound healing, blood clotting, as well as thyroid function... just to name a few. To provide further immune support, Douglas has now added Vitamin C, as well.

Product Notes:

The highest concentration of zinc is found in the eye, making it crucial for supporting and maintaining normal vision, and for slowing the progress of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). In addition, zinc has been shown to enhance antioxidant activity and provide increased protection against free radical damage.

Those at risk for zinc deficiency include: elderly people, pregnant women, vegetarians, vegans, and individuals with chronic depression. Douglas Lab's Zinc Lozenges are sweetened with sorbitol and have a refreshing orange flavour to make it easy for individuals to enjoy their zinc!
