Product overview

Vegetarian Suitable for Vegetarians

Vegan Suitable for Vegans

Gelatin free Gelatin Free

Zinc is one of the most important minerals used by the body and is mostly found in high protein foods such as meat, fish (in particular shellfish), nuts and seeds. The body does not produce or store Zinc so a regular supply in the diet is required.   

Each small, easy to swallow tablet contains 15mg of Zinc (150% RDA) in the form of Zinc Citrate. Many nutritionists now prefer the citrate form of Zinc over other types of Zinc compound as it is readily absorbed in the body. Each tablet also contains 80mg Vitamin C (100% RDA) for an extra boost.

Zinc has many functions within the body. For example it is recognised for its contribution to the normal function of the immune system as well as contributing to normal fertility and reproduction.

This seems to help when I think I might have a cold coming on, as usually it goes away again when I take this product, although I have no way of testing it in a scientific manner, as I have no way of setting up a control.

22 July 2014

I have started taking this again as I feel it supports my immune system when I am extremely busy it helps stop me getting run down and also supports my joints as I've been getting aching joints in this hot weather and zinc usually helps with this.

21 July 2014

I have used healthspan's service for many years. These days I find the range of products somewhat bewildering, and buying appropriately - according to my health and budget - has become increasingly difficult. I always try to buy in sales, but it does irritate when products I've just bought subsequently go on sale or are added to the sale halfway through it. I think in such circumstances you should give your long term, loyal customers an automatic credit.

21 July 2014

These tablets for me have been amazing if you are feeling a bit rough or have not been well they really help you get back on your feet and also help you get through a busy day.

21 July 2014

Bought to help fight off recurrent chest infections and haven't suffered one since taking them (although it is more in winter I suffer). However I have noticed that my once brittle and flaky nails are now noticeably much stronger so my husband is taking them too as his nails were weak. My daughter kept getting mouth ulcers and now she takes one zinc tablet a day she is clear of them! Excellent product and extremely inexpensive for such results.

13 July 2014

Great since the packages are postbox friendly.

10 July 2014

Healthspan's products are really effective for me. The service is very reliable and my purchases always arrive quickly. It's even better now as most of the packages fit through the letterbox so I don't have to go to town to pick them up if I'm out when they arrive.

01 July 2014

Eighteen months ago, after a thorough check-up and tests for never-ending colds, coughs and flu-like symptoms, my GP suggested zinc tablets to boost my immune system. Since then I have had just one cold and I feel so much better generally.

01 July 2014

I have put good mainly because I can't say its been bad. I don't really have anything to gauge this by but was recommended it to prevent cold germs. Not sure it actually did that because I did get a cold and very bad cough but I have a feeling it was not the right thing to take anyway now.

01 July 2014

My immune system is comprised so need all the help I can get. Using Jealthspan products I can get all I need from one place and the repeat ordering is good as it means I never run out.
