WHAT IS IN THE MEDICINE?
This nutritional supplement contains zinc. Zinc helps the body’s natural defense against damaging free radicals (antioxidant effect) and helps boost immune function. Free radicals are highly reactive and unstable chemicals generated during normal body activities that require oxygen (e.g., respiration, digestion, blood circulation, immune system response, etc.) and after exposure to UV light, cigarette smoke and various pollutants. One major effect of zinc is on the ability of cells to properly replicate the DNA, which is required for cells to multiply. Hence, zinc is needed for normal growth.

Zinc has other known functions/effects:

  • Cofactor of various enzymes involved in cell division and growth
  • Required for the normal development and maintenance of the immune system; helps regulate the activity of cells involved in immune function
  • Functions as an antioxidant by being a cofactor of the enzyme superoxide dismutase which is involved in the removal of harmful free radicals.

Zinc is also recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF as an adjunct in acute diarrhea management together with reduced osmolarity oral rehydration salts (ORS).
