Quick Overview

    Product Description

    Zinc deficiency in humans is widespread and supplementation at high levels may be necessary in such patients, including those with malnutrition, malabsorption, chronic diarrhea, or other risk factors of zinc deficiency. Injured and stressed individuals are more prone to developing deficiencies. Increased local demand for zinc, resulting from surgery, wound trauma, or burns, exposes otherwise marginal zinc deficiencies. Zinc is lost in significant amounts after surgery because of fistulas, stress, and diarrhea.

    Zinc supplements should be taken with food, especially when higher doses are used, in order to prevent nausea. If high doses are taken over a long period of time, copper should be supplemented as well to prevent a deficiency of this important trace mineral. A recommended ratio of zinc to
    copper is 15 mg zinc to 1 mg copper.
