We recommend our Zinc with Vitamin C Tablets as good alternative to Zinc Defence Lozenges.
Don't worry, everything happens for a reason. Zinc Defence Lozenges have been discontinued to make way for exciting new developments at Healthspan, so watch this space.
What is Zinc?
Zinc is an incredibly important mineral with a wide range of health benefits, including the support of immune health. Intense physical exercise can make you more vulnerable to everyday ills. This is why we’ve created Zinc Defence Lozenges, designed to be taken at the first signs of cold and flu.
Zinc also contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism, protein synthesis and bone health. It’s a key player in fertility, especially for men, as it helps maintain healthy blood levels of the hormone testosterone. And acts as an antioxidant, helping fight cell damage and the risk of premature ageing and disease.
Why is ours better?
We’ve taken an evidence-based approach which suggests that 90mg of active ionic zinc is the optimum level required to boost immune health at the first signs of cold and flu.
Each of our peppermint flavoured lozenges contain 34mg zinc acetate, providing 10mg active ionic zinc. Up to a maximum of nine lozenges can be taken daily. Dissolve one lozenge slowly in the mouth every 2-3 hours as required.
Who is this for?
The body is more vulnerable to infection during periods of intense exercise and training, that’s why our vegan zinc lozenges are especially popular amongst keen exercisers who want to support their immune health.
Perfect Partner – When you exercise, you become more vulnerable to illness. Our effervescent tablets Activ Immunity+ have been designed with active people in mind. The wild berry flavoured formulation contains immune boosting nutrients, including the super-fruit elderberry plus iron, zinc and the vitamins C and D3 to support the immune system after intense exercise.
Interested in more? Take a look at our BodyShield Immunity Plus vegan capsules. This supplement contains a premium immune-boosting complex, including Wellmune® beta glucan, French maritime pine bark extract and co-enzyme Q10, plus vitamins and minerals specifically chosen to support the immune health of those taking part in high intensity physical activities.
