Quantum Health's Thera Zinc Lozenges combine two popular immune-boosting nutrients. Zinc is an essential mineral that works with Superoxide Dismutase, an enzyme that's the body's main antioxidant defence for controlling inflammation and is also a co-factor with 30 other essential enzymes, some which have immune functions. The second main ingredient in two of these types, Elderberry, not only serves as a flavour (along with a great tasting natural raspberry flavour), but there's also research suggesting it can reduce the duration of flu symptoms and possibly help prevent viral influenza infections. A third type uses Echinacea as the second main active ingredient, and two types also use Slippery Elm.
