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. The highest concentration of zinc is found in the eye, thereby making it crucial for supporting and maintaining normal vision. 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 flavor to make it easy for individuals to enjoy their zinc!
