An easy way to provide a boost of zinc, vitamin C, a touch of vitamin D and some betacarotenes. But why bother?


Well, zinc is extremely important for immune system. It is vital for the optimal growth and function neutrophils, NK cells, macrophages, cytokine production & wound healing. Zinc is used by over one hundred enzymes that make protein, DNA, and new cells. So yeah, it's pretty important. Especially when the flu season approaches.


How do you know you're low on zinc? The first thing to go is a sense of smell. Don't panic, it's not necessarily the-virus-that-shan't-be named! It's so gradual, most people don't even notice. Next to go is a sense of taste. Some people will never have a fashion sense no matter how much zinc they have, but this is a different sense of taste. After than, wounds don't heal, hair gets brittle, low mood and on it goes. 


Another way to find out if your zinc is low is to try a zinc taste test. Some chemists or health shops provide these for a gold coin. At Herb Nerd NZ we provide this at no cost. It's purified water with zinc. You hold it in your mouth for up to ten seconds. What you taste will determine your zinc levels. It's kind of fun!

This is a professional grade supplement with rigorous quality control. A full list of ingredients is provided.
