I took this supplement for years and can't even remember why I stopped. Started taking it again about 10 days ago, and I can already tell the difference. It's not just great for your immune system, it really makes my skin feel baby soft, too. If you haven't taken zinc before, you might want to ease your way into with a quarter tablet for a few days, then one half, then a whole, as going full blast with zinc can make you nauseous.
We have been using zinc to bolster our immune systems for over two years. When everyone around us was getting the flu, my husband and I have not even had a sniffle for over two years. We do use it with magnesium supplements and multivitamins and extra Vitamin C and D3. Yes, that's a lot of vitamins but , we feel, we are a lot healthier because of our regime and zinc is a major factor
Good Chelated Zinc from Country Life. This supplement contains zinc as an amino acid chelate. Zinc is essential for the proper functioning of many organs and systems in the body, including the skeletal, immune, neurological and endocrine systems. Zinc supports immunity, stimulates the production of hormones, proteins and nucleic acids, supports reproductive health, and helps normalize blood sugar levels. Chelated zinc is highly digestible. Recommend.
As aforementioned, Country Life is my go to brand. I was suffering an acute deficiency of zinc. Besides the blood test results, proof of it was the low immune system, the ease of catching sore throats, colds and also allergic reactions among others. After the second week of taking this dosage, my coughs and sneezing decreased considerably, a very good sign. The ingredients of this zinc are well balanced because they’re are not counteracting/clashing with other supplements and vitamins I’m taking. All different vitamins I’m taking are working properly in their own dept (so to speak). When you see and feel the benefits, you know what direction to take
I have always been a fan of Country Life’s supplements. These chelated zinc tablets are very easy to swallow, and one of the best valued products I could find with chelation for increased absorption. The fact that it’s non-GMO, as well as no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners makes it a perfect fit for me. The expiration date at 5/23 gives me a good year to use this, and I most likely will by taking one every day for the 100 tablets it provides.
So happy to have found this brand of Zinc. Typical drug store brands don't seem to work as well, and also aren't coated. The small size and film coating on these tablets makes them *super easy to swallow* and they don't leave a nasty taste in your mouth.
Good value product. I find that I need 50 mg of elemental ZInc a day to maintain my body's hormone balance. People with Acne I have found if they take 1 x 50 mg a day regularly for 3 months will see a dramatic improvement. and then continue same to avoid a re-occurrence.
Great quality product. It's the right dosage, it's usually recommended to take 50 mg, so this bottle is enough for 3 months. Great to improve immune function. I really love how quickly iHerb posts the items - very fast shipping.
