About Zinc

Zinc Gummies feature 12 mg of elemental zinc as zinc citrate per gummy and are suitable for ages 4 and up as a delicious option to help meet daily zinc requirements.

Zinc is an important trace element in the body.1 It plays a key role in maintaining immune health by stimulating the production of immune cells, regulating natural killer cell activity and mediating cytokine production.1,2 

Clinical research has demonstrated that daily supplementation with zinc helps to maintain immune function in adults, adolescents and children.3

 Zinc also has a long history of use in dermatological health.5

It helps to maintain immune function in the skin, while promoting collagen synthesis to help maintain skin structure.6 

Additionally, zinc has a role in maintaining hair and nail health, and maintains bone health by regulating bone formation and resorption.5,7-9 

This mineral is also involved in a key buffer system that helps to maintain normal acid-base balance.9
