The product is best dissolved in the mouth slowly, but may be chewed as well. Zinc is vital for supporting the immune system, as is vitamin C. Slippery elm is added for its soothing characteristics. Kirkman’s zinc lozenges, sweetened with xylitol and dextrose, have a natural tropical punch flavor and a hint of vanilla bean. Free of common allergens. Gluten and casein free. Ultra Tested®.

Zinc is present in every cell in the body and is also a component of over 200 enzymes and involved in more enzymatic reactions than any other mineral constituent in mammals. Zinc is essential for normal skin, vision, smell, taste, reproduction, brain development, protein synthesis and wound healing. It is also one of the most important factors in a healthy immune system. Zinc is involved in just about every aspect of the immune system, including the immune system enhancing “T” cells that are necessary for immune system response.

Zinc levels in the body may be lowered for many reasons including the following:

•     occasional diarrhea;

•     fiber consumption, which causes zinc excretion through the intestinal tract;

•     perspiration;

•     high calcium and iron consumption;

•     copper ingestion.

Children and adults need between 10 mg and 50 mg daily.

Though the recommended daily value is 15 mg, it is generally recognized that 30% to 50% of ingested zinc is not absorbed due to complexing with phytic acid, perspiration loss, fiber transport through the intestines or because of the competition for absorption with copper, iron and calcium.
