During times of stress or illness, requirements of certain nutrients increase. Two such nutrients are zinc and vitamin C. Zinc supports the immune system, helps wound healing and supports healthy levels of sex hormones needed for reproduction. Vitamin C is the ideal partner for zinc, as it also helps the immune system. It is a potent antioxidant and is known to ease the symptoms of a cold and shorten the time needed to get over it.
Zinc is particularly effective in fighting colds because it prevents the adherence of cold viruses to the cells in the nasal mucosa. Additionally, it inhibits the growth and stops the reproduction of germs. Zinc also helps to alleviate the possible inflammation reactions caused by a cold because it prevents the release of histamine. Therefore, the nasal mucosa does not swell as much, allowing the person to breathe easier.
These natural honey and lemon flavoured Zinc Plus Lozenges can also be used as a zinc supplement. They dissolve in the mouth to provide a steady release of zinc, vitamin C and bee propolis to the throat membranes, fighting the viruses where they are instead of having to take a detour through the digestive tract. The zinc is present in the citrate form because citrates are known to be readily absorbed. They provide an alternative for adults and children who find capsules and tablets hard to swallow.
Daily intake children 1-3 lozenges. Daily intake adults 1-7 lozenges
