My doctor recommended supplementing zinc. I had difficulty with tablets, and needed something easy for a zinc deficiency. Now I use one tablespoon in a half glass of water, first thing in the morning, and it could not be easier. No digestive problems, no bad taste, just refreshing water with exactly what I need to boost my immunity.
To me this had no taste, which is great. I was expecting perhaps a bad taste, but I was happily surprised. I was so glad iHerb had this product. It does not have extra unwanted ingredients like other brands. It is pure and simple and I greatly appreciate that. The size is generous and the price reasonable. I am very happy with my purchase.
With increasing soil depletion of essential minerals from industrial farming, it has become more and more important for me to get zinc from a supplement just in case. This liquid form is the best for absorption. Zinc, alongside magnesium, is what I like to call a macro use mineral, in that our bodies really need a lot of it every day compared to micro use minerals like chromium. In addition, zinc is so important for our immune function. I take it extra when I am sick and I notice my wellbeing increase quickly. It also helps to heal the gut lining from damage and it was a great aid while I was healing my gastritis. Pepzin GI, which is a patented Japanese supplement for gastritis, also contains zinc as its major component. It is involved in tissue healing, immunity, hair and much much more. I pour into small bottles from this large container to expose it less to oxygen and preserve it longer.
I switched to this from a more expensive brand because I’m now taking zinc several times a day. This bottle was much cheaper for way more zinc. The downside is it’s in a plastic bottle. Also, and this may just be me, but it doesn’t have as strong of a zinc taste/mouthfeel when I take the same amount of previous brand. Maybe it’s more diluted. It does say to take a tablespoon a day which is more per serving than the other brand. Either way the cost savings are good enough for me to use this.
We have been using this for the last year. Our family has been mostly healthy and immune systems robust. This zinc has no flavor really, so my picky family members don't mind drinking it with a little water.
I have more energy/concentration whenever I take this. I tried the concentrated version which had the opposite effect on me not sure why but this was much better. I just wish it came in a glass bottle.
