Zinc is an essential trace mineral that helps maintain immune function; produce connective tissue; support growth and development; and metabolize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins; and it's also a cofactor in over 300 enzymatic processes in the body, some involved in energy metabolism.
Zinc may seem like a small mineral; however, it packs a big nutritional punch! Zinc deficiency can lead to multiple complications such as immune dysfunction, increased susceptibility to infections, or impaired growth in children.
For those who prefer to avoid capsules and/or additives, these two products from Metagenics provide a convenient liquid solution that can either be taken straight off a spoon or just mixed in with a glass of water or juice. They are very pure: delivering only zinc, in a solution of either distilled or de-ionized water.
Two Formulas: Zinc Tally vs Zinc Liquid (formerly: Zinc Drink)
These Metagenics liquid zinc formulas differ primarily in strength (with Zinc Tally providing a single mg per teaspoon; and Zinc Liquid, 15) and their recommended usage (taking it twice a day with meals, or once a day between meals, respectively).
Want to know if you're deficient in zinc? Take the Zinc Tally taste test by placing 10 ml of Zinc Tally in your mouth: a lack of taste/delayed taste may suggest a possible zinc insufficiency, while an immediate taste perception suggests your zinc status may be normal.

Zinc supplementation can cause a copper deficiency. Do not take iron supplements at the same time as zinc, since iron interferes with zinc absorption.
