Zinc is essential to the normal function of many organs and systems within the body including the skeletal‚ immune‚ neurological‚ and endocrine systems. Zinc is a necessary mineral co-factor for hundreds of enzymatic reactions related to protein and carbohydrate metabolism‚ RNA/DNA synthesis‚ and intercellular signaling. It is also known to play a critical role in the body’s defense against oxidative processes and is especially helpful for the maintenance of healthy aging.
Each capsule contains 50mg of elemental Zinc
Increasing the concentration of intracellular zinc with zinc‐ionophores like pyrithione can efficiently impair the replication of a variety of RNA viruses.44 In addition, the combination of zinc and pyrithione at low concentrations inhibits the replication of SARS coronavirus (SARS‐CoV).44 Therefore, zinc supplement may have effect not only on COVID‐19‐related symptom like diarrhea and lower respiratory tract infection, but also on COVID‐19 itself.
