Zinc contributes to normal function of the immune system. The immune system maintains the body’s immunity and defends the body against the attacks by viruses and bacteria. Zinc is needed for the development, differentiation and functioning of white blood cells of the immune system.
Zinc acetate is the best zinc in lozenges
Zinc acetate is the best chemical form of zinc to be used in lozenges when the immune system needs an enhanced dose of zinc. Zinc acetate does not bind zinc tighly but releases 100% of bioactive zinc ions into the saliva. Bioactive zinc ions affect the immunity locally in the mouth and pharyngeal region. This effect requires a high daily dose of zinc, preferably a dose more than 75 mg divided in several doses per day. One lozenge should be taken every 2 hours and let it dissolve in the mouth for 20 minutes.Typically, taking the enhanced dosage for 3-5 days is sufficient for the immune system.
Zinc acetate lozenges can be used in common way too (1 tablet a day) to maintain the immunity.
Food supplement is not a substitute for a balanced and varied diet and healthy lifestyle.
Enhanced dose: For adults 5-6 tablets daily, take 1 tablet every two hours. Let the tablet slowly disslove in the mouth for 20 minutes.
The enhanced dose is recommended to use max. 14 days.
The enhanced dose is not for children, pregnant or lactating women.
Basic dose: For adults 1 tablet a day. Let the tablet slowly disslove in the mouth.
Enhanced dose 5-6 tablets contains:
Zinc 75-90 mg
Basic dose 1 tablet contains:
Zinc 15 mg
