DESCRIPTION

Zinc Lozenges, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, supply bioavailable zinc, sweetened with sorbitol and

flavored with natural orange extracts. Each tablet contains 10 mg of elemental zinc in the form of zinc citrate.

FUNCTIONS

Zinc is an essential trace element involved in most major metabolic pathways. General signs of human zinc

deficiency indicate that zinc has important functions in maintaining immune function, reproduction, healthy

skin, and growth. Numerous studies support the fundamental role of zinc in normal immune response in

humans. Immune cells must be able to rapidly divide in order to respond to daily challenges. Like all rapidly

dividing cells, immune cells depend on adequate amounts of dietary zinc. As a cofactor of the antioxidant

enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD), zinc can be considered an antioxidant nutrient. Zinc supplementation

has been shown to increase the antioxidant activity of SOD, and provide increased free radical protection.

Zinc deficiency is associated with increased oxidative damage. Absorption of toxic heavy metals, especially

cadmium and lead, is lower in individuals with high zinc status compared to those with low zinc status.

The body pool of readily available zinc appears to be small, which renders the body susceptible to deficiency

and therefore dependent on a steady dietary supply of bioavailable zinc. While typical zinc intakes in U.S.

adults are between 10 and 15 mg per day, which approach the RDA, intakes in the elderly are often low.

Pregnant women are also at risk for zinc deficiency, since they have a higher requirement for this trace

element. Frequently, vegetarians and chronically depressed individuals have been found to have low zinc

status.

INDICATIONS

Zinc Lozenges may be a useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to increase their intake of zinc.
