Lamberts Zinc 15mg (as Citrate)
Size: 90 tablets
Zinc is an integral part of insulin, the hormone used for the treatment of diabetes, and is essential for all protein synthesis in the body. Any extra physical or mental demands made on the body can increase the need for zinc or cause our bodies to lose extra zinc, whereas phytate and fibre rich foods inhibit the absorbtion of zinc from food.
One fifth of zinc in the body is found to be in skin. Zinc helps tissue renewal and is onvolved in some of the enzymatic reactions necessary for the skin's normal oil gland function.
The maintenance of the health of several body systems, such as the nervous, immune and reproductive systems are influenced by zinc, as are the senses of taste and smell.
1 tablet daily.
Some patients taking zinc on an empty stomach may experience some minor digestive disturbance such as nausea. Should this be the case, it is recommended that they take their zinc supplement with a meal.
Long term intake of 25mg or above may lead to anaemia.
