Zinc + C Ingredients
Zinc + C includes the following ingredients: Zinc Gluconate, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), and Sodium Ascorbate.
The main ingredients contained by Zinc + C are Zinc and Vitamin C.
Vitamin C or Ascorbic Acid is found in a large number of foods, including broccoli, parsley, strawberries, citric fruits, papaya, mustard greens, or Brussels sprouts. Many of its roles in various bodily functions have been documented by scientific research. Most commonly, Vitamin C is used to promote a healthy immune function, treat common colds, and fight oxidative stress. In addition to its dietary supplementation uses, its antioxidant effects have gained Vitamin C a great popularity as a skin and beauty care products ingredient. Vitamin C is also an important component of collage, a protein found in large concentrations in the connective tissue. The Vitamin will hence protect, teeth, bones, and jointa, as well as quicken the body’s ability to heal. Recent research evidence seems to indicate this Vitamin may help alleviate symptoms of stress and depression. As part of the process of Dopamine conversion into Norepinephrine, it seems that Vitamin C may also act as a mood regulator.
Zinc has powerful immune enhancing implications and is present in most tissues in our body. Research shows that it may improve symptoms of ADHD (Attention deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) in children, regulate mood, enhance physical energy, and alleviate feelings of depression. Its antioxidant properties may indicate a potential role in slowing down the progression or preventing Alzheimer’s disease.

Both Vitamin C and Zinc play several major roles in the health of the immune system. And while the daily requirements can be obtained from food, the nutrient depleted soils and toxic environment usually prevents food to contain and deliver the proper amounts for vitamins and minerals. Zinc + C is a dietary supplement designed to cover for any deficiencies of these two nutrients, essential to the immune function and connective tissue among others. Existing and ongoing research mentions Zinc and Vitamin C, two extraordinary antioxidants as being effective in preventing and treating serious diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, or depression. We recommend that you talk to a healthcare provider and evaluate your current health condition before using any vitamin and mineral supplement.
