These tasty natural honey and lemon lozenges dissolve in the mouth to provide a steady release of zinc and vitamin C to the throat membranes. Each lozenge provides Zinc, Vitamin C and Bee Propolis, a fascinating material believed to have useful properties. Adults can take up to 7 lozenges throughout the day and children up to 3 a day. Zinc is involved in the maintenance of a healthy immune system, Modern day diets are often low in zinc since food refining processes, particularly of cereals, removes up to 90% of the available zinc content. This, coupled with the move away from animal-derived protein, has meant that one in three adults in the UK receive less than the recommended daily intake for this mineral! Nutritionists usually recommend a supplement containing the recommended daily intake of 15mg, as a sensible way support the intake from food.
