Every single cell in the body needs zinc, but thanks to our modern-day diets, many of us just don’t get enough of this mighty mineral. In fact, a national survey in the UK found that zinc intake was below recommended targets in 43% of men and 45% of women aged 19-50.
Zinc is vital for hundreds of biological processes that take place in the body, from immunity, vision, sexual maturation, skin health, cell division and normal cognitive function – even for taste and smell! That’s why everyone who takes a multivitamin or mineral supplement should make sure it contains relevant levels of zinc. We’d usually recommend a daily intake of 15mg to guard against any shortfalls in the diet.
Many nutritionists now prefer the ‘citrate’ form of zinc because the material is known to be readily absorbed. We were one of the first companies to begin selling zinc in this form, and our products still offer excellent value for money. If you’re after a multi formula, you can be assured that all our blends listed below are enriched with potent levels of the mineral. And, as with all our supplements, we promise that our zinc products are formulated with high-strength, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients and made in the UK.
